There is one twin room and the 6th bedroom is the children's bedroom and shares a bathroom with the adjacent twin room. This fabulous and very unique children's bedroom has a bunk bed ( 1 double bed and 1 single bed in the bunk) and they can enjoy some exploring to find the secret hideaway, a great fun place for little pirates to escape to!! We can't tell you more now... the children will have to use their pirates intution or maybe they might find the treasure map to find the secret hideway!
If you want a bedroom that you can escape from it all , the entire first floor of Casa Segredo is dedicated to the large master suite which also has its own private sun drenched terrace / balcony with sunloungers and fab views across the countryside.

There are several sunny places in the morning to enjoy breakfast. You can choose to have breakfast on your terrace upstairs or on one of the large covered and open terraces that surround the villa.
