The family house Mastaguera is hidden away down a single-track country road that leads through olive groves and almond trees. The house itself has been converted from an old stone farmhouse.
Inside, the rooms are light and bright with a mixture of traditional materials and modern comforts. There are stone walls and archways, white-painted walls, beamed ceilings and terracotta-tiled floors. The lounge is a long room with sofas and chairs around an open fire. Here, there is a TV, DVD and CD stereo. A wide stone arch leads through to the dining room. Both these rooms look out onto a pretty courtyard with a barbecue cooking area with its own sink. A stone staircase leads up out of the courtyard to a terrace. The kitchen has new units and appliances including a dishwasher, and laundry can be done in the separate utility room.
There are 2 twin bedrooms on the ground floor. They share a bathroom with a bath and a shower. All the bedrooms are air-conditioned. There are 3 more bedrooms on the first floor, light and bright with wooden furniture and white bed linen and views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. The first room has an en-suite bathroom and 2 private terraces. The second also has an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower and again has its own terrace with mountain views. The third bedroom on this floor has an en-suite bathroom with a bath and a shower.
There are 8 acres of gardens and land around the house, with amazing views over the rolling green fields. There are Mediterranean plants such as bougainvilla and geraniums, cacti and date palms. There are lots of lawns too with relaxing and shady places to sit and read and for children to run around and play. The swimming pool and sun-terraces are also a delight, with Roman steps into the pool and tall trees shading the water.
