Outdoors

The true pleasure and tranquility experienced in Casa Andromeda is in the enjoyment of being outside, in a private and gated environment with stunning views.
There are several terraces at various levels, allowing the views to be enjoyed from different vistas, but also making it possible for guests staying to enjoy a bit of privacy and time apart as well as time together on the larger terraces.
The pool terrace is completely open with panoramic views and with covered areas to the side. Dining is for 12 people on the open terrace, and there are parasols or covered areas for sitting in the shade.
The lower large colonial style “naya” (covered terrace) is ideal for afternoon relaxation in the shade, or for dining (for 10 people) during the heat of the day. Those of our guests who enjoy yoga, have also defined this naya as a favourite spot.

The Tower room terrace is for sun worshippers who like it HOT!

There are also small naya’s with smaller dining facilities both at the pool terrace (4 people) and at the lower apartment (4 people).

The fruit terraces below the villa contain young fruit trees that are now beginning to produce delicious seasonal fruit including the local Nisperos (March / April), oranges, limes, lemons and both pink & yellow grapefruit (all citrus trees producing both in winter and summer), apricots (June), figs, grapes (August / September), mangos (September) and avocados (November).One of our guests harvested 10kg of apricots last summer….but this is an absolute record that we do not expect to experience every year.The herb rosemary cascades over the stone walls.

All edible fruits and herbs are available to our guests, at their own risk, and assuming they treat the trees and plants with care, when picking. Care must also be taken when descending the stone steps to the fruit terraces.Feel free to take some rosemary home with you to freeze and use during the winter months.

The area around the villa is residential with limited and only local traffic to the villas. It is therefore easy, safe and enjoyable to walk around the neighbourhood, and, walking up the hill, there are several loops of varying distance for those who enjoy a bit of regular exercise.

For longer treks – the possibilities are limitless. Please ask for more details or look at the details provided under The Area.
