Casa Montelongo, Fuerteventura, Spain
A stunningly chic private haven
2 - 4 people
Casa Montelongo is situated in northern Fuerteventura, in the centre of the Spanish town. A completely renovated 19th-century house, once home to a well-connected local family, it comprises two self-catering units created from the bones of the former theatre and original casa. Each is a blend of tradition, modernity, and avant-garde design, paying homage to the island's heritage with local materials such as stone, wood, clay, lime, and glass. The two units, which can be rented separately or together, are separated by a long, square shared pool. Minimalism prevails throughout, with a focus on clean lines and simple aesthetics to create a feeling of calmness.
Rooms are bathed in natural light, creating an ambiance of transparency and spaciousness, and the design blurs the boundaries between the interior and exterior. This grown-up haven is an idyllic destination from which to embrace the slow movement, disconnect from the world, and immerse yourself in the lunar beauty of this island's surreal landscape.
