Casa del Mundo
Travel the globe from the comfort, beauty and relaxed natural luxury of Spain's Costa Blanca.
Discovered in Alicante, Casa del Mundo is a truly magical finca (Spanish for rural holiday escape) that, as its name suggests, brings together all the very best parts of travelling the world - sightseeing, socialising, dining and relaxing - without the need to arrange a long list of flights!
Here you'll find a sparkling swimming pool strewn with palm trees, traditional flower-covered Spanish terraces and a mouthwatering restaurant; all testament to lazy holiday living and perfect complements to your accommodation, a true extravaganza of globally-inspired imagination!
Privately nestled amongst lush plants and fruit trees, the eclectic resting places you'll discover include an Indonesian rice hut, an elephant trainer's wagon, authentic safari lodges and a selection of wooden caravans, all individually styled to evoke some of the world's most exotic destinations. All accommodation is self-contained, with a dedicated kitchen, bathroom, lounge, terrace and sleeping areas.
Andalucia and Balkan are nostalgic wooden gypsy wagons that each sleep two people (you can hire an additional cabin for extra guests if needed). Traditional Andalucia is set within sweet-scented olive groves, while baby-blue Balkan complements the summer sky perfectly! Both feature a coloured glass skylight that allows both day and starlight to flood inside.
Nestled under blossom trees are Bosphorus and El Harem, authentic Turkish gypsy wagons that sleep up to five people, and gloriously bold in both colour and style!
Elephant and Punjab, a cosy unit that once performed as a genuine circus wagon, is joyfully quirky. Expect plenty of vibrant reds and golds to complement the sunshine outside.
Sumatra is a former Indonesian rice hut for two. Beautifully constructed from wood and palm fronds, the hut features a lace-canopied double bed and stunning views.
Completing our world tour are Kenia and Zambia, two luxuriously spacious wood-and-canvas safari lodges that each sleep up to five people.
Now you've chosen your favourite destination, it's time to make like a world tourist and get sightseeing! Casa del Mundo is beautifully situated within mountain ranges, nature reserves and a glorious coastline, meaning hiking and walking are pleasures to be savoured. With exclusive tracks available from your friendly hosts, why not compose your very own five-course ‘hiking menu'?
Those who want to sample real menus will enjoy spending time in the on-site restaurant (with a tempting selection of international-inspired dishes you can match to your chosen accommodation if desired!) - and there are also plenty of nearby towns and tapas bars to explore.
Paragliding, canyoning, hiking, biking, diving, pottery and horseriding are available if you're looking to learn a new skill - though if you'd rather stay lazy, why not simply head to the nearby beach, or spend time lazing around the swimming pool on site? On rare colder days, fireside snuggling in the library is a welcome treat.
So if you've always hankered after travelling the globe, but didn't quite know where to begin, relax! Casa del Mundo has the whole world beautifully covered, and ready to share with you.
