Über dieses Inserat
Casa de Tomilho is a spacious house (91 square meters) and has a covered 20 square-meter terrace overlooking the central garden. This casa has two bedrooms on either side of the living-room, each with its own bathroom.
Quinta do Colmeal, a 12-hectare country estate, is in the middle of a large area of natural beauty. The gently sloping and extensive plateau is mainly covered with cork oak, holly oak, almond, citrus and olive trees, vineyards, rock roses and many fragrant herbs. This vegetation provides magnificent shades of colour on the estate. Both flora and fauna are unique. This rural landscape furnishes optimal privacy and intimacy in untouched natural surroundings.
Our two houses and three apartments in the large third house can be rented separately. If you are with a big company, you can also rent the entire Quinta. Thus it is ideally suited to be together as a family or party. The full Quinta disposes of 14 beds!
Zugang für Gäste
At a short distance from the houses is the large water reservoir which in the old days was used for agricultural purposes. This reservoir has been converted into a swimming-pool of large proportions and designed in classical style. It provides a fixed cooling and refreshing place of rest in this Mediterranean oasis: genuinely Roman in character with Roman and Visigot columns alongside, symmetrical (11 by 11 m, 1,8 m. deep), embedded in marble and situated among orange trees, commanding a wide view of the surrounding olive trees.
