PROPERTY AT A GLANCE A connoisseur’s property in a class of its own. This finca is like a forgotten oasis, situated amidst blissful peace and the feeling of eternal sun, in a mid-elevated position, approximately 375m above sea level, surrounded by wooded hills and the majestic Bernia mountain range in the distance.
PROPERTY DETAILS A sparkling blue pool, glazed terraces, natural stone walls and a multitude of Mediterranean plants, olive and palm trees characterize the paradisiacal scene. The location is divinely picturesque and the finca construction quaintly magical from the outside and regally magical inside.
It has been lovingly, masterfully and authentically restored, refined and lavishly fitted out, with discerning opulence, tradition and contemporary technology: halogen spotlights, between original beams, meet royally magnificent chairs at King Arthur’s knights table and conservatively distinctive wooden doors and hand-cut marble floors in exquisite shades of beige and cream demonstrate how old and new can be brought together and presented in the right light, while a beautiful country house kitchen, of a kind rarely seen, emphasizes the international and timeless picture-book ambience.
