Overview

A driveway through chestnut trees sweeps round to reveal this excellent, L-shaped villa. The property covers 25 acres of grounds and looks out across the fertile valley of Fuente del Rey: what one client called "heart-stopping views".

The grounds are immaculately kept and a stone-walled garden leads down to a sparkling blue swimming pool.

There are few holiday rental properties that live up to such promise. The villa is an interior designer’s dream where space, natural light and tastefully balanced colours create an overall sensation of exquisiteness. It is swish in a particularly impressive way.

In classic Andalusian style, the main room has been left open-plan, an archway dividing off a very comfortable lounge from the dining area and kitchen. Ceilings are high-beamed and sunlight filters through from the outside to present the nicely chosen furniture and decoration in what feels like a freshly laundered atmosphere.

Four lovely bedrooms are ranged along the other wing of the house. Bathrooms are indulgently mosaic-tiled and attractive; bedrooms are spacious and have generous built-in wardrobes.

On the north side of the house, an independent apartment has been built into the high stone wall. It has a sitting area, shower room and kitchen. The main laundry room is located alongside here.

Although we may see another cottage below the pool area, this casita belongs to the estate and remains closed while your are on holidays.

Whether indoors or out, you will find standards and style here quite luxurious.

The gardens and lawn are carefully tended and guide you down to a truly marvellous, stepped swimming pool. It's salt-filtered and lined with deep blue tiles. With steps leading into the water and night-lighting, dips are inviting at all hours. All about are cheerful colours of bougainvillea and scents of jasmine, rosemary and thyme.

The location is a very tranquil spot of the Sierra de Aracena, yet only 15 to 20 minutes’ walk from Aracena market town. Perhaps reaching by foot the main square at the heart of this town would take a little longer.

You can enjoy any number of walks in the area by simply following the old public footpaths that link one village to another. The villa has books and maps to guide you. Nearby Aracena is thoroughly Spanish in having some 60 bars to serve a population 7,500. Restaurants, shopping and banks are all here, not forgetting the village’s famous and extraordinary underground cave network.

Tennis and golf are available locally and day-trips include the Rio Tinto mines (complete with train ride), the former mosque in Almonaster, and once-Roman Merida.

The calendar of fiestas in Aracena is one of the busiest in Andalucia: don’t be surprised if your stay coincides with some celebration or other!
