Overview

This self-catering accommodation is set in a gorgeous retreat near Aracena.

The property is one of the largest of six quality, award-winning Aracena holiday villas set here and there in an expanse of cork oak and chestnut forest, amidst spectacular mountain scenery.

It makes the villa ideal for people on private holidays who don’t mind greeting others now and then, but who value their intimacy and independence. The estate is spread out over a large area and the houses are set well part to ensure a full measure of privacy.

This totally tranquil natural environment is a mountain environment with more than just a touch of class. It’s a place to relax, read, go on long walks, cook Spanish-style in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoy all the comforts of a very good country home.

This three-bedroomed cottage is built on raised ground above the river bank, ensuring excellent views are of the surrounding hills and the green valley.

The villa is made from local stone, fitted out and decorated to  high standards. “Super-comfortable,” to quote previous guests, it is spacious, light-filled and superbly furnished. Bedrooms have solid wood ceilings and bathrooms are beautifully tiled.

It has a furnished terrace vith views for outdoor dining and underfloor central heating that makes the accommodation very comfortable in winter.

There is an additional common room: a very comfortable, sitting and dining room with an open fireplace, which is open to everyone staying here.

Guests also share use of a large swimming pool and a splendid tennis court with artificial turf, set in delightful natural surroundings. Please bring your own tennis equipment and a towel for the pool (bath and hand towels are provided in the villa).

Additional facilities include bicycle hire, donkey rides, Spanish guitar and Spanish language classes and babysitting. Please ask us if you wish to take up any of these opportunities, as some may require booking well in advance.

The Sierra de Aracena is an unbeatable natural area of southern Spain and this particular corner is very special. Relaxation, river walks, visual splendour and gastronomic satisfaction are just a few of the attractions. The hospitable facilities provided by the friendly owners include vegetables from their market garden and tips for the best restaurants in charming little Alajar village, whose whitewashed houses and cobbled streets are only a short walk away.

Alajar village is a delightful 20 mins stroll away. It’s a quiet, attractive village with good restaurants. Interesting excursions will take you to the Peña, or cliff, above Alajar and further afield to Rio Tinto (ride the train through the old mines), Almonaster La Real (visit the mosque within the castle) and Jabugo village (for superlative Iberian cured ham).

For a special day out and a city experience, you have exuberant Seville 90 mins away, Andalucia’s capital and one of the most attractive cities in Spain. Seville Airport is also the closest, followed by Jerez, and Faro in Portugal.

Otherwise, exploring the beautiful Sierra de Aracena with its bird life all year, wild flowers in spring and excellent edible mushrooms in autumn, when they become a sought-after ingredient at local restaurants.

The English, Dutch and Spanish-speaking owners live on site and are available to answer your questions and help with local arrangements.
