Modern villa or authentic country house...
Consider before you are going to make a reservation with us what the differences are between a modern villa with often big windows and glass sliding doors or a renewed authentic country house whereby the traditional and characteristic features return in the furnishing.
An authentic country house has often low passages between rooms with low beamed ceilings and also small windows. So when your length is 2 metres you have to bend a lot. A few ages ago the average Spanish was smaller than now and a country house had small windows to keep the sun and the heat outside.
If you want a luminous villa......don't book a country house.
Authentic country houses do have often beautiful ceilings of wood called "Sabina" and often a tiny dust is falling from the ceilings which can cause a pile of dust the next day (on your bed for instance). The tiled floor from a country house can seem dusty even if it has just been cleaned. Besides the real country houses have thick walls which have been made with cement in which seawater is used "salt water". After ages the paint still blisters of the walls, inside as well as outside. If it is annoying you tell it directly the caretaker of the house (they don't even see it anymore) and they will make it better. Such a bare spot on the wall or blistering paint is not dirty and it has nothing to do with lack of maintenance.
Luxury or not...
Finca Tours doesn't rent only luxury villas but also common, comfortable and stylish houses.
At every house is one of these terms mentioned so pay attention when you want to make a reservation. If you decide to make a choice for another category than luxury, you cannot expect luxury at arrival.
Don't complain in July or August about the heat. In this time of the year the temperatures on the mainland of Spain can rise until 40 degrees Celsius. On the islands it feels fresher because mostly there is a little sea breeze blowing. If you really want to have a cool house in this period you have to rent a villa with air conditinoning.
Just do like the Spanish in houses without air conditioning . . keep the shutters closed during the daytime with the windows open. Once the sun is not shining on the villa anymore then you can open the shutters. Especially in the evening it is better to open the windows and shutters, so even without air conditioning it will be fresh while you sleep.
