The surface of the gradually sloping drive is finished as a calcada pavement. A large traditional Portuguese compass mosaic points North to the stone pillar outside the main entrance. There are no steps inside the villa just a continuous non-slip floor. All doorways are wide. Only two small steps lead down from the covered patio to the terrace and lawns surrounding the pool. This area is all on the same level. It is a wheelchair-friendly environment.
Casa Marecol is gated, hedged and partly walled with free parking in the quiet, level, cul-de-sac. The 10 x 5m swimming pool shelves gently from 1m at the steps to 2m at the deep end. Ample garden furniture and sun loungers are provided on the patio, terrace and lawn. The steep steps down to the underground pool pump room are fenced and should not be used by guests. The pool is not fenced so children need to be supervised at all times. Barbecue – enjoy al fresco eating.
