The Village Home

Sweet is the village home
With the overhanging trees
With the open well on the east
With the kitchen adjacent to the well..

The coconut trees giving shade
The Jack fruit and the mango trees

5- Villa Pino Alto

Hidden in the mountains, divine, warm and cozy cabin.

Complicit in romantic antics in the corners of wood or front of the fireplace that warms the body from the winter cold.
Master bedroom with high ceilings, panoramic view of the beautiful landscape and relax. Where you will hear the anthem of the pines sing his music, with the wind of the night, announced rooster sunrise and the rain falling on your roof.
Each object and space has a story to tell.
Wide spaces with comfortable furniture clear to avoid disturbing the colors of pine canvases.
Kitchen which create the rich recipe that you are preparing.
Dining room to taste a delicacy by the wine that will accompany.
At sunrise you will hear singing canaries awakening.

You have to visit the house to appreciate it and live it.
