Description of the house
Casa Fonte lays at the edge of a small village in a nature reserve. It is part of a sustainably built and beautifully finished split-level villa of 2016. It has an upper back and a lower front house, surrounded by 5000 m2 land. The upper back house is occasionally inhabited by the two Dutch owners. In the Low Season (October - May) their souterrain part can also be rented to a maximum of 2 persons.
From June-September the souterrain will not be rented seperately, so you will always be the only guest in Casa Fonte.
Because the lower holiday house has been built transverse to the upper house it offers total privacy. From Casa Fonte there is no view to the upper house and vice versa. The entire villa is powered as much as possible by natural sources; the house uses only water from its own water source. This spring water is completely filtered, making it suitable for consumption.
From the house you have an unobstructed view over the hills of a large nature reserve, with olives, pines, cork oaks and eucalyptus.
Casa Fonte easily accommodates 4 people. The living room is spacious, bright and tastefully decorated and has large sliding doors to the east terrace with panoramic views and the large patio facing southwest. The patio can be closed so that even small children can play safely. Via the east terrace and a small stone staircase you can reach the beautiful located pool behind the house.
The fully equipped kitchen is situated in the living room.
Through a spacious hall you enter a large master bedroom with sliding doors to the private terrace. Because of its location on the east here you can relax in the morning and eat breakfast.
A second bedroom has two comfortable single beds and a sink. This bedroom is accessible from the living room, but also has its own entrance from the patio. Casa Fonte has a luxurious bathroom with rain and hand shower.
The surrounding land has enough space to relax on deck chairs.
For hikers: from the house you can start almost immediately on one of the hiking trails of the nature reserve.
