Approached via a maze of narrow lanes between the high compound walls of many traditionally styled homes, Casa Rosita is in the quiet, rural village of Saligao. Most aspects of life in this historical village have not changed. Though modernisation has set in, it does not make itself evident. The older generation still walk or cycle to the tinto or market place complete with walking-stick and hat, occasionally stopping to exchange a bit of news or greeting with a fellow villager.
The house has been carefully adapted to modern living with the inclusion of 3 stylish bathrooms and a well equipped fitted kitchen yet skillfully retaining the gentle ambience of bygone times.
Clever use of space in the rear courtyard has meant the inclusion of small swimming pool and a delightful outdoor dining area. The courtyard area is shaded by mature trees the perfect spot for an al-fresco meal or early morning cup of coffee.
From the living room a polished wooden staircase rises to the fourth bedroom

The house is set in a walled garden to the front and one side. The owner has done much to create an inviting space in which to relax with lawns, a profusion of young tropical planting and an established large swaying bamboo grove and mature trees. To the rear of the property is the enclosed pretty courtyard. Where the dining terrace and pool are located.
