Rustic Style Houses

The first house in the picture has an unmistakable rustic style and all the houses make you think about the castelian diversity. This particular house is rustic, covered with clay tiles, its stonewalls, small windows which don’t have shutters or gates and are framed with stone blocks; the entrance doors are made of wood and have double swings. The inside provides natural clay soil, sometimes painted in a color that lasts through the walls to form a base of medium height. Once you see it, you get to like its rustic style, the strength and safety it suggests. The interior is a continuation of the exterior and the rustic air is so inviting that it is impossible not to feel at ease.

The second house in the picture is actually Cantabrian, a mansion specific for the north, but oriented to the south or south east, with all sort of angles and openings, with Arabic tiles on the roof. The first floor has a balcony and large windows to take advantage of the natural light, the arcade makes you dream, while the walls are plastered and contrast with soils, stone on the ground floor and chestnut on the upper floor and the doors and windows have panels.

The Muslim influence can be seen best in the South, in the humble houses and farms. The walls are mud bounded to ground water, shuttering boards or stone in the mountain areas and wood in slabs and beams. Nothing compares to the air provided by the Arabian footprint.

The Mediterranean coast provides houses with small north facades and wider south facades, rectangular windows with wooden shutters painted in dark tones: green, indigo and red; sea stone is used for a better reflection of the sunlight. All the rustic houses presented have that something that makes you like them and it is definitely the case!{found on micasarevista}.
