Our home

The house is situated in a very small street, too small for cars. It is called Casa Encantadora which means lovely house.
Entering the house you'll find a hall way where you can sit and read. There are 2 bedrooms with double beds both with a view on the patio. The patio is created according to the old Chinese Feng Shui tradition with a touch of Zen. It is quiet and peaceful, an excellent place for meditation and afternoon tea. The bathroom with toilet, bathtub and shower, is also down stairs.
Using the wide comfortable steps you arrive on the second floor with a spacious living room with plenty of light. Some of the window are overlooking the street and some of them the patio The living room has a couch as well as 3 comfortable chairs, Sky satellite television, radio and compact disc. The dining area is between the living room and the kitchen.
The open kitchen is well equipped with fridge, oven and cooking facilities. Next to the kitchen is a small inner court with washing machine and a second bathroom. Every room has a radiator so winter season is also good for skiers.
The upstairs terrace has a marvelous view of the mountains and the valley and in winter you can enjoy the snow on the mountains from the terrace.
