The most special feature of your holiday at Casa Londrina is the simply incredible outside area. With a 14,000m2 private garden, including pool, stream, orange grove, oleander path, granite terraces and shaded pergola area, the house itself is almost forgotten about.
The property is entered via a gravel path and gigantic, granite patio area. Here you will pass the pool and covered pergola before taking shallow granite steps up to the covered balcony and onto your private entrance. Turn around and take in the amazing views before you enter.
This space is constantly described as “gigantic” simply because it is. Take a few steps down from the house and enter the pool via a walkway from the middle terrace. From the pool, as from every other part of the property, lay back and take in the wonderful nature.
Also on the pool level is a shaded spot under a wooden pergola with two wooden sun loungers. Maybe you want a nap after a refreshing dip in the pool, or to relax with a cold drink. A rustic, granite table with chairs is provided by the lemon tree for an an extra outside dining space.
Step out from the bedroom or kitchen onto the covered balcony and dine at the two-seater table, or relax on the wooden bench at yet another viewing point out into nature.
The grounds of Casa Londrina are simply “something else”. Head down the sinuous, stone paths where you will be greeted with an assortment of wild flowers and a beautiful oleander-lined track. Pass the small lily pond on your way to the stream and walk through the cool, shaded orange grove. See how the grape vines are coming on and discover plum, pear, apple, pomegranate, avocado and olive frees.
Why not test your climbing legs and venture behind the house up to the cork oak forest and digest the almost lifelike posture of these protected trees. 8,000m2 of forest takes a lot to walk around on steep slopes, however the views from the top are to be treasured.
Even though you will be leaving the grounds of Casa Londrina, there are an infinite amount of walks to be had directly from the property. Just take the track that leads to the house and head left or right. You could make short, “before breakfast” walks, or full day walks immediately from your front door.
Casa Londrina is situated at the end of a 1.6km (1 mile) gravel and dirt track, accessible by car, truck, motorhome, motorcycle and bicycle. There are many parking spaces all around the property as the whole track is the driveway.
