Its situation is the first thing to recommend Casa Goya; ensconced within the quaint ivy-covered sandstone walls of Fuendetodos, the home looks like it has come straight off the pages of a book on the prettiest villages. Settled upon its leafy terrace as you enjoy one of a variety of picture perfect views it does indeed conjure up images rural idyll personified. Rustic in style, the home features a cosy living room with fireplace and sloping wood-beamed ceiling. The 4 bedrooms reflect the same country style, characterised by such features as skylights and sloping ceilings, and bordered by 2 elegant bathrooms. Spacious yet homely, the house features thick stone walls that keep the heat out in summer and the warmth in during winter.

Front gardenIn a place like Fuendetodos, which has become a classic artists’ retreat, the quaint charm of this home fits right into its surroundings. Yet it belies a comfortable, spacious home that enjoys modern luxuries and amenities. Above all, however, Casa Goya is a home of infinite character and variety, offering the occupant an artistic and cultured setting in which to live. This home, with its split levels, mezzanine galleries, skylights, stone walls and attractively shaped windows that look out onto tree-covered terraces and sleepy village squares is made for those who draw inspiration from their living environment.

The fact that Casa Goya is perhaps the most charming and adaptable of the original buildings in this historical village also makes it an ideal site in which to create a small country hotel that benefits from the assured year-round flow of visitors to this important art centre. Demand consistently outstrips supply here, especially during high season (summer, Christmas and Easter).
