The house has two bedrooms with four beds and a bathroom to accommodate six people at a time. Imagine yourself and your friends enjoying alfresco dining on the very terrace that Connell and Marianne sat down, then woke up for a morning dip in the huge outdoor pool. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, the list also says the property has been used as the setting for a number of other films, including Eat Pray Love with none other than Julia robert.
