This spacious home has 3 main bedrooms, 2 indoor bathrooms (+1 outdoor bathroom), an upstairs lounge with dining table and pull-out bed couch (4th bed), a large dining room/ downstairs lounge, a utility/ laundry room, and a large kitchen. Outside there is a Patio, 2 x bay Parking, a Courtyard with brick built BBQ, Decorative garden with home grown vegetables, leading onto an amazing Infinity pool which overlooks miles of landscape and mountain view. All bedrooms have large double beds with wardrobes and bedside drawers. There is plenty of towels and bed linen for each bedroom, (with additional linen and towels supplied if the 4th bed is needed). 1st indoor bathroom has shower, toilet, drawers and large vanity mirror. (There is also a hairdryer and hair straighteners there for your convenience.) Whilst 2nd indoor bathroom has fixed shower fitting inset in a relaxing candle-lit bath. The 3rd bathroom is outside next to the infinity pool and has a shower and toilet. The lounge speaks for itself, it is huge and has a 2 seater as well as a 3 seater leather sofa. With a cosy log burner in the lounge for any slightly more chilly (or romantic) nights that also acts as central heating for the rest of the house. Patio doors in the downstairs lounge also lead out to the lower level of the enclosed courtyard. In the large open plan Kitchen we have plenty of cook-wear, cutlery and table-wear, a large fridge freezer, as well as a small breakfast bar and (most importantly) a local wine rack. There are 2 indoor dining tables and 1 outdoor dining table on the patio (all 6 person tables). From the enclosed Courtyard past the brick BBQ and the outdoor beer fridge you will enter the decorative private garden, herbs and vegetables to eat (as well as a few orange trees dotted around). Leading onto the poolside area that has sun loungers, outdoor shower + bathroom and an amazing infinity pool. The aroma of the Eucalyptus first thing in the morning is unique. There is a very friendly bar a short walk from the house, which has friendly locals, good wines, local alcohols, foosball and pool table.

About the neighborhood
This part of Central is steeped in history and places to visit. You will find the weather is constant and mostly quite warm from Spring through to Autumn. Barracao where casa de Vista de Montahna sits is a small village with extremely friendly locals. Nothing seems to be any trouble for them and the are more than happy to help you. Barracao has much beauty and fantastic scenery as it sits within the mountains. Mortagua is just 10 minutes from Barracao and is also a lovely town to visit and explore.
Getting around
Although there are a couple of shops for bare essentials and some local bars and restaurants there is also a bus service that stops at the top of my road, one going to Luso and opposite side goes to Mortagua. This is of course if you do not have a car.,l
