The very special holiday homes
at the Ria Formosa
Casa Palmito lies in the middle of the nature reserve Ria Formosa in a huge orchard of 3600 yrd2 with mainly subtropical and tropical plants. The location is quiet and lies next to a pine forest – the garden has a fence all around as well as trees and plants which give you privacy and protect you against views from outside.
A very homely leisure residence, with 1600 ft2 living space and thus comfortably suited for 4 to 8 persons.
This house is built solely by materials used in organic architecture and is hence ideal for allergic persons. Main emphasis was laid on a good isolation, optimal use of the natural light conditions for the rooms, and building techniques that are typical for the area – all of which creates a pleasant "climate" in the rooms.
A walk to the wadden sea takes you only 5 minutes.
Casa Palmita has a homely living room with a gallery, a sofa (convertible into a bed for 2 people), an inserted wood-burning fireplace, a CD-player and satellite-TV.
Many books and games for the young and the young at heart are available for our guests.
