The house sleeps up to six people.
Casa Rosina, originally two houses recently joined together and completely reformed, is some 200 years old. It is full of traditional features including hand made terracotta floor tiles and olive and carob wooden beams. It is very comfortably furnished including some textiles from Spain and Morocco, crafted furniture and original terracotta tiles used as light-shades.
Best supplied and furnished villa in history” - Tom and Sandy Burnham and friends.
“Casa Rosina had all the comforts we could possibly want - it felt like it was our home, if unfortunately for only two weeks!! We will certainly be back” - Sarah and Peter Brown and family.
“The house has been a great retreat” - Nigel and Lorraine Hale and friend.
The four-bedroom house is on three floors - ground, first and lower ground. The lower ground floor is 'self-contained' and partially disabled guests have easy access to the ground floor. Access to the swimming pool and terrace is from the ground floor.
Entered by a stable door, the attractively decorated lounge (5.8m X 3.8m) has original ceiling beams and a handmade terracotta tiled floor. There is a three-seater settee and armchairs, coffee table, music centre (radio/CD/tape). The wood burning stove is wonderfully warming for the winter months.
Leading off the lounge is a twin bedroom (3.8m X 3.8m), single bedroom (3.2m X 3.2m), fully fitted kitchen (3.2m X 3.3m) and short stairs to the lower ground floor (see below).
The kitchen is very well equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave, electric cooker, toaster, coffee maker, juicer etc.
Leading off the kitchen is the utility room with a washing machine and dishwasher and door which leads out to the pool, pool sun lounging terrace and barbecue/dining terrace. The spectacular views to the mountains make a perfect place to eat and drink whilst watching the sun set.
Stairs from the kitchen lead to the first floor. At the top of the stairs to the left is a 'quiet area' (3.3m X 3.1m) with comfy sofas where one can escape to read or just chill out. There is a satellite TV which accesses BBC and ITV channels
To the right is a large fully equipped and furnished bathroom (3.3m X 3.10m) with bath and shower attachment, bidet, loo and wash handbasin.
The room off the top of the stairs is the master bedroom (9.6m X 3.8m), the one everyone wants! This bedroom runs the length of the house with it's own sitting area. The views from the window look out to Lake Viñuela and the mountains.
The lower ground floor comprises a large bedroom (7.8m X 4.0m) with one double and one single bed, an 'en-suite' shower room (3.5m X 1.8m) and a kitchenette area. Glazed doors lead to the front terrace which is an ideal breakfast spot. Again, lovely open views to the lake and mountains. There is a bookcase which is well equipped and guests who are reading a book during their stay are welcome to take it home with them to finish reading. Likewise if you are reading a book and don’t want to take it home leave it in the library!
Note - the bed in the upstairs master bedroom is a double. A child's cot and high chair are available. There are 2 hairdryers in the house - one for each bathroom (more room in your suitcases!)
““All the comforts of home but you still know you are on holiday” Camilla and Edmund Burge.
“A lovely house and very well equipped, we will recommend it to our friends. Your concern for our comfort has been well appreciated” - Margaret and David Owen and family.
The swimming pool (7m x 2.5m x 1.5m deep) is surrounded on two sides by handmade terracotta tiled sun lounging areas. The third side is a good sized terrace, also in handmade terracotta tiles, where you may dine off the teak table and watch the sunset. There is a built-in barbecue on this terrace. There are 6 sun loungers and six chairs.
“The pool is wonderful and the terrace comes into its own in the morning” - (March) Eric and Joan Gibson.
“Its been a fantastic week, the villa and pool have been perfect and very well equipped - so many fluffy towels!!” - John and Sarah Kearon amd family.
“Twice a day at about 9.30am end 9.30 p.m. a gang of sheep and goats are driven down the road to drink at the well, organised by two and a half dogs and a man who alternatively wears a straw Panama and a camouflage forage cap” - Tony Rickaby, Jacqui McLellan and friends.
We hope you found everything OK after we'd gone: the house is really so well equipped & easy to settle into. We shall certainly recommend it to friends. John & Shelley Evans
Accessed from the outside or the lower ground floor bedroom, this large terrace is an ideal breakfast spot. Views to the lake, the coast and the mountains are spectacular.
Casa Rosina faces south and so catches the sun from sunrise to sunset.
“Our most memorable moments were at sundown, on the second drink, as the temperatures fell and the mountains were silhouetted against the setting sun” - Gary and Claire Robertson and family
