Floor to ceiling windows allow the greenery from the garden to come inside and enhance the panoramic views.
Casa Britto has been furnished with great care combining antique and vintage pieces with top level design to create an exclusive and homely character. The property features a large number of spacious social areas, each with its own atmosphere and style. All these areas are easily accessed from the kitchen, which is the heart of the house. Next to the heated pool there is a large wooden deck, a small rancho and a grill area with a gazebo for shade. The gardens have been designed with a great variety of flowers, plants and trees embracing the property in a cascade of colors and scents attracting butterflies and birds. Winding paths lead to the upper garden passing colorful flowers and fruit trees to a larger rancho with breathtaking views.
