CASA BRITTO DESCRIPTION

The minimalistic architecture integrates with the natural slope of the landscaped garden surrounding the house, taking full advantage of the spectacular views and natural illumination. Two large terraces provide shade to the façade permitting natural ventilation to keep the house cool during the warmest of days. Floor to ceiling windows allow the greenery from the garden to come inside and enhance the panoramic views. Casa Britto has been furnished with great care combining antique and vintage pieces with top level design to create an exclusive and homely character. The property features a large number of spacious social areas, each with its own atmosphere and style. All these areas are easily accessed from the kitchen, which is the heart of the house. Next to the heated pool there is a large wooden deck, a small rancho and a grill area with a gazebo for shade. The gardens have been designed with a great variety of flowers, plants and trees embracing the property in a cascade of colors and scents attracting butterflies and birds. Winding paths lead to the upper garden passing colorful flowers and fruit trees to a larger rancho with breathtaking views.

Un sueño que duró 7 dias

  • 5 of 5
Todo lo que promete esta casa, se queda corto cuando uno la conoce

El checkin fue super ordenado, con un tour por toda la casa gentilmente realizado por los dueños

Las instalaciones son excepcionales, amantes de la cocina varios de los que nos quedamos pudimos aprovechar la increible cocina completa que tiene y su hermosa parrilla con vista a toda la ciudad

Maria y Pablo que trabajan en la casa, hicieron de nuestra estadia aun mejor. Levantarse a la mañana con el olor del desayuno recien preparado y luego un chapuzon en la piscina, van a ser recuerdos que nos perseguiran por un largo tiempo

Lo mejor, las terrazas con vista al valle

A beautiful home in the middle of paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Britto for a week in March. My only regret is how little time we got to spend enjoying the house and especially the gardens and pool! With so many attractions to see, it was a busy vacation! But we made it a point on our last day to spend the whole day by the pool and it was heaven! The house has everything one can need and room for a very large group. Lots of sitting areas to relax and enjoy the views. Great staff too, it was such a treat to be greeted at the airport by Jose and to have Maria take care of us and Pablo care for the property! Thank you Antonio and Marta (and Evelyn and Feliz too!)

Casa Britto an Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5
Casa Britto was an excellent choice for our visit to Costa Rica. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. This secluded hideaway is located on a hillside in Escazu, which is about 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of San Jose. The accommodations and staff were exceptional. The property is spacious with lovely areas for gathering. Also, there were plenty of places for solitary reading and relaxation. There were six in our group. A bonus was each of us was able to have our own bedroom. Another bonus was the heated swimming pool. It was one of our favorite gathering places. The one thing that would have made our trip better is having a driver who spoke English. He was a good driver, he was helpful, polite and punctual. But, considering what we were charged the driver should have been able to point out and discuss points of interest and answer questions about some of the sites we visited.

Impressive 5 star

  • 5 of 5
Overall a fantastic experience. The house sits on a side of the mountain with great views of san jose. The people who take of the house are always there for you. They do almost anything you ask them to do. The house is well maintained and its very roomy even for a large group. The weather is just about perfect. Low 80's in the afternoon and low 60's at night. The distance to downtown area is only a short 10 to 15 minute drive. I cant wait to go back next year.

Best vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the best vacation houses that my friends and I have been to. Perched on top of a hill with a panoramic view of the city and a beautiful cloud covered mountain background. This place is secluded and we really enjoy the quiet surroundings.

The villa can easily house 5 couples and kids. Spacious bed rooms. Fantastic patio with wall to wall glass panel living room. the best is the heated swimming pool, which is particularly good in the chilly and windy January weather.

The owner also arranged a BBQ for us which was very enjoyable.

The villa is very well maintained; extremely clean and the staff is very courteous. The only minor issue that I had was that the staff didn't speak English; only Spanish.

I would give this place a 5 star and highly recommend to any one wanting to chill and unwind.
