La Finca Bella is a traditionally built stone cottage dating back over 100 years of rich history, the finca is a typical example of a small holding or ‘Casita’ of the village of Pedreguer in the Valencian region of Spain with a large plot or ‘Parcela’ of acricultural land which is planted with a variety of trees yielding yearly crops of almonds and walnuts and fruits such as oranges, grapes, lemons, mandarins, grapefruit, figs and nispero to name a few as well as traditionally grown vegetables like ‘cardoon’ an essential ingredient in the local speciality stew ‘Putxero’. Traditionally used as a countryside retreat from the local ‘pueblo’ or town of Pedreguer for families and friends to while away the hot summer evenings and enjoy their home grown produce and fruits of their labour, along with some locally made wine. The Finca has been lovingly restored to it’s former glory with special attention to detail, breathing life back into this beautiful old building and restoring it’s original character features using reclaimed original materials from the house and locally sourced traditionally used materials, with the aim in mind of returning the house with all it’s exquisite detail to it’s original splendour. Although the house has been brought into the 21st century with all modern day conveniences it still maintains all it’s original historic features including an original fully working well for water that still to this day is used to irrigate the variety of trees and plants on the land and an original stone fireplace to heat the whole house in cosy winter nights. Through a quaint handmade wooden door you enter the large open country kitchen that oozes with character that sets the theme for the rest of the house, with exposed wooden beams and traditional stone walls, the original staircase made from antique tiles leading to the stunning interior gallery with water fountain to the lovely bedrooms full of character with exposed stone walls and rustic floor tiles and intricate little features, that give this unique house a warm, peaceful, ambience. The outside of this historic house is completely surrounded by ancient grapevines, some as old as the house itself, which still produce amazing red & green grapes each summer as well as providing essential shade from the summer sun. From here you also have breathtaking views stretching across the orange groves in the valley to the stunning surrounding mountains all the way down to the Mediterranean sea.
