Turning into the pillared gates of the Casa Rosa estate, you are transported to the Moorish gardens of the Alhambra, by the cypress tree colonnade, interspersed with orange trees, lining the drive. You pass sumptuous hedges of rosemary, beds of scented lavender and roses, fruit and olive trees carefully selected to give fruit at each season. This mature garden instantly envelops you in a swathe of beauty, relaxation and luxury and you know you have arrived.

Terraces and Verandas
Courtyard Terraces - are surrounded by a sheltered loggia covered in scrambling roses, jasmine and plumbago. Two large dining tables and chairs for eating al fresco 

West Terrace - enjoys stunning views of the mountain panorama and looks over the landscaped tennis court. Perfect for late afternoon tea while watching the match.

Tennis Court Veranda - walk down the steps through the oleanders to the seating in the shade of a large olive tree to enjoy half time oranges and home made lemonade. We do!

Swimming Pool Terrace - comfortable sunbeds, shaded areas and shower all set in the beautiful gardens. The swimming pool is not separate from the house, being part of the design scheme.
