Casa Melisa
is an amazing and eccentric hideaway for two (or three).  Back to nature and totally captivating with a group of resident tortoises wandering slowly around the wildly exotic gardens.  Just to be here enjoying the experience is a splendid treat for the soul.

Living Area

This house is certainly a house for you to enjoy during the summer months.  The living room is accessed from the outside and has a wood burner, a television set up for only dvd’s, a bathroom and some relaxing sofas.  There is wifi access in the house.  There is an undercover area just outside of the living room doors where you can sit peacefully and enjoy nature.  The owner would like you to remove yourselves from the outer world and enjoy the splendid natural environment where you have chosen to spend your holiday.


The kitchen has basic but charismatic facilities.  There is a wooden country table in the centre big enough for six people and an open fireplace in one corner.  The door gives onto the outside patio where there is a mosaic round table and chairs for you to enjoy your meals.  There is a gas hob and oven and plenty of utensils and crockery.


The bedroom sits alongside the living room and is accessed, again, from the outside via a covered way. It has a double bed and a sofa and looks directly onto the courtyard garden which is full of amazing fruit trees and exotic plants.  It has its own en suite bathroom and wood burner.  A third bed can be provided if you are a family of three.


The outside area is amazing. Like a tropical garden.  There is a large family of tortoises wandering around.  There is a central fountain hidden amongst the many trees of pomegranate, avocado, mandarins and oranges.  There are also pet peacocks housed behind the property in another field.  You are more than welcome to visit them and say hello but don’t let them out – the owner says they like to run away!  If you have a child, this would be a constant source of interest. The pool is located away from the house, surrounded by a great wall and on occasions you may have to share it with the owner who is very rarely in residence.  We can advise you on this if you are wanting to book the house.

  • Please note that the rooms do not connect internally.  They are all accessed from outside, under the pergola. 
  • Please also note that the land and pool is shared with another house, although hidden away behind the trees and plants.  The pool can be accessed by a separate door behind the house.  The owner rarely visits the house but if they are visiting the pool will be shared.
