Vieques vacation rental Villa Gallega: .A-16-N villa Gallega Vieques was designed by a team of architects and engineers to be a unique piece of architecture in Vieques, this Villa and very few others on the Island are far away from the standard 'boxy' feeling architecture, low ceilings and standardized Island architecture. There is a giant 50 ft. infinity swimming pool engineered and designed by a team of International professionals, made with original fossil stones that are over 5000 years old, salt water to protect our guests skin, and offering breathtaking views of the calm and relaxing azure waters and mother nature. Villa Gallega Vieqes in centrally located and close to all the beauty that crowns Vieques, on a gated community, on a private hill, shared only by 3 other elegant private Villas. Security privacy and absolute peace is what we offer on a gold plate, no dogs, chickens, and roasters spoiling our vacations, no disturbance of any kind. Villa Gallega is a synonymous of serenity, security, privacy and peace.

Pool: Vieques Villa Gallega offers a natural spring water infinity pool that is 5.10 ft deep all over, with a resting tanning area, tanning beds imported from the Italian Adriatic coast Riviera, designed and strongly build to last, using only the most safest materials. These chaise lounges have been framing the Amalfi coast, Capri, Rimini and are present in that 'Dolce Vita' style, minimal elegance that underline the Italian Summers.
Even the pool towels have been selected to be of the finest and strongest cottons, we chosen brand names like Speedo and Lacoste for us and our guests.

                              This is the only property in the core of the Island, that is totally quiet, peaceful, serene and private BUT a snap away from the multicolored beaches, the trendy W resort, cozy restaurants. It is the house loved by artists, musicians, writers, producers, philosophers, singers, performers, athletes and people looking for serenity and direct contact with mother nature.

                              Viilla gallega is a definitely the most Serene way to experience a real freestyle vacation, with or without clothes. Most guest defintet it a sanctuary in this unique peaceful Caribbean Island. The swimming pool is a gigantic natural stone sculpture by Artist Mike G Bianco. It is designed to be chemicals free, (we NEVER use muriatic acids, chemical stabilizers, harsh mixtures to purify our water or to keep it clear), the water is so clean and free that is drinkable. We spend thousands to change the water, we never keep the same water for decades and your skin will fee refreshed and smooth after every swim.

                              Our pool is totally built with 5000 years fossil stones and uses a unique system to keep the water fresh and natural. The villa can be enjoyed with its 4 bedrooms of which are 2 master suites offering enchanted views, privacy and room to rest, write, sleep, or meditate.

                              About: The property is owned by a young Italian Family of young professionals looking for a low key Island, away from everything, and quiet. We feel that Vieques is a place to meditate, write and paint, jog, swim, windsurf, meet friends, write music or songs, enjoy dinner under the stars, or a glass of wine with friends. Vieques Its still 'The Island' of our dreams, perfect for those, like us, looking to immerse themselves in nature and experience all the magic of it. My sister is a world traveller, my mother a lawyer that plays classical music at the piano, my brother an aircraft engineer and my other sister an actress. This home in an experience, the pool is a modern sculpture made of natural fossil stones, and the house an art gallery where 22 of my paintings are permanently exposed. There is a lot of positive energy, love for natural materials, the hardwood roof, the natural stones floors, and plenty of light, infinite views, inspiring sunsets, sunrises and above all space...to be inspired.

                              Why Barrio Florida Hill:
                              Above all the privacy, space, light, and natural beauty of the materials that built this home, the peace of the surroundings, then the advantage of co owning a hill, the central location on one hand and on the other the peace and serenity of the area. There are only 2 other luxury villas, the next house is 500 yards away and all we see from our windows are trees, ocean, sky, goats and cows.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Its like being in an Island on the Island. As most of our guests say it is therapy for the mind, peaceful, serene, quiet, safe and oasis of calmness. Perfect to write a book a script, paint, write music, read books, do yoga, swim, or just watch the stars. When we are home, we never want to leave, we invite friends for wine and dinner on the deck or to enjoy a barbecue.
