The house

How do you get to the top of the world?

The spacious nature house (135 m2) is located on top of a hill surrounded by all kinds of trees. Due to its location on the edge of the village, there is a serene silence. The peace and quiet is interrupted by, among other things, the sounds of various birds and insects coming at the plants in the garden. The cottage has a large kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a cozy living room with fireplace. If you get up on time, you can - while enjoying your breakfast - watch the sun rise beautifully from the dining room. The bright, spacious dining room offers beautiful views of the garden and hills across the valley. In the corner of the garden there is a lovely swimming pool (not heated, except by the sun) with an environmentally friendly saltwater cleaning system. Only later in the afternoon do the tall trees of the neighbors give some shade, but before that time the sun shines continuously on the swimming pool, so take measures to prevent burns. In addition to the various colorful plants, the garden also contains fruit trees, such as mandarin, lemon and orange trees. The almost 950 m2 garden is maintained biologically. From the covered garden terrace you also have a view of the area behind the villa. At the large table of the terrace you can choose the shade and some coolness to enjoy a book, good outdoor dining or drinking a tasteful Portuguese wine.

Next to the house is an authentic old mill whose wings have unfortunately been dismantled. Nice to know that that five meter high mill (a lot smaller than what we are used to in the Netherlands) once functioned on that hill. Although some trees have been planted since then, you can still regularly enjoy a breeze that lights up in the evening (usually around seven o'clock) in the summer. A parking space has been created in the corner of the garden where a number of trees provide some shade.
