Offering the same exceptional levels of comfort and style as Casa Cahombo and Casa do Doutor, this impeccable house with its colourful, manicured gardens and breathtaking panoramic views can certainly compete with the very best in our portfolio. With a location that is equally as impressive as its sister properties, Casa de Baixo also boasts many unique and eye-catching attributes. Not least of these is the acre and a half of beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the house and which could, perhaps, be more accurately described as a park! Spreading over two levels and inlaid with attractive flowerbeds, colourful shrubs, mature olive and citrus trees, tasteful ornaments and even a pair of antique horse-drawn carts, the grounds are an outstanding feature. Add to this the wonderful backdrop of uninterrupted views stretching all the way to the coast (some 14kms away) and you have a wealth of options for a memorable holiday... and some memorable holiday pictures!
It is immediately apparent from the striking, vaulted entrance hall that you are entering a property of quality and stature. This is an airy and very welcoming house, where the spacious rooms flow easily from one to the other, each one individually decorated with flair and style.
The living room boasts a high, beamed ceiling and a large feature fireplace of local stone. Alongside is an ample dining room with glass-panelled doors leading into the beautifully fitted kitchen, where facilities include an American style fridge freezer, central island and five ring cooker with two separate ovens. The elegant bedrooms are also extremely well appointed with each one boasting its own bath or shower room, as well as independent air conditioning. A mezzanine/study provides an ideal retreat and the views from here, in fact from all the various terraces and balconies, are nothing short of spectacular.
Stepping outside, the focal point of your holiday enjoyment is sure to be the magnificent summer kitchen cum games room located on the lower level of the garden alongside the two private swimming pools. Reminiscent of a Swiss chalet due to its substantial, wood beamed construction this is quite simply one of the most impressive pavilions of its type that we have seen. Here you will find a large drinks fridge, separate seating and dining areas, two separate cloakrooms and an assortment of activities guaranteed to entertain both active children and restless adults alike. With a shaded veranda, outdoor eating area and an in-built barbecue right alongside you have no reason to stray far and many hours are sure to be spent relaxing in and around this appealing setting.
We are not sure whether it is the choice and colours of the fabrics, the teak furniture, the use of marble, stone and wood, the leisure areas, the views or just the sheer scale of the villa, but whatever it is that makes Casa De Baixo so special, we are sure that your stay here will be unforgettable.
