Overview

Finding smallish family cottages set in extensive fincas with total privacy and seclusion is not always an easy task. Large estates mostly belong to larger villas, but here we came across an exception.

With its private 6.5 acres of organic farmland (fenced and for your own private use), this 3 bed villa benefits from a fantastic spot where you and your family will get a feel of being in a very intimate natural space of your own.

The gorgeous, surrounding nature and the far-reaching views create a superb sense of tranquillity, one of the highlights of holidaying at this country home.

Our favourite spot is the terrace, equipped with a wonderful Weber gas barbecue right next to the kitchen… what a view!

Fully renovated only 18 years ago, this is now a proper country home offered for holiday lets. We were told that most of the materials used for its construction were locally sourced and some even from the finca itself, which gives a special feel to it.

Indoors, the house is ample, airy and bright. The living area alone is 50m2 and the main bedroom is 20m2. Spaces don´t feel cramped at all, while you get views from every window to the protected natural space that surrounds you.

The décor is simple, tastefully decorated to a minimalist - rustic style and with just the perfect amount of detail. Wooden furniture and some interesting features such as farming tools and rustic ornaments give a warm feel to it.

A nice detail we found just outside the house, dating from long passed times, is a very well-persevered threshing floor. We recommend this spot for gazing at the stars at night while contemplating the silence of the surrounding hills.

The swimming pool, while not too large, is great for taking the heat off during hotter days. The large tree beside it ensures it receives both shade and sun at different times of the day.

Overall, we found this property attractive for children who need space and like to explore. The whole family will find pleasure in strolling through the woods, picking figs in the summer, swimming in the pool or having a siesta on the hammock under the shade.

If you enjoy al fresco meals, expect some memorable family moments on the outside terrace.

Sierra de Aracena is a perfect holiday destination for those who like nature, good locally sourced food, pretty little villages and having plenty of options for days out.

Before you travel, we will send you our local guide of the area, personally curated by our team at Rustical Travel, with tips and other useful ideas.

YOUR REVIEWS

Elizabeth | July | 2019

Everything about this holiday experience went well. The booking process was straightforward and the property itself was presented with great attention to detail and to a high specification. Our local contact, Abel, balanced friendliness and recommendations for trips and eating places with discretion and thoughtfulness and his approach was much appreciated. The house was comfortable and well equipped, with more space inside than appears on the website. One small detail that could be improved is the directions to the house. It was all fine, but adding in one sentence clarifying that the turnoff to the house is a slip road from the bypass rather than saying that the road divides, and is the next turn off after the Repsol garage would have saved us a little time driving around! Overall we had an excellent holiday and can not recommend Rustical Travel and this particular property highly enough. Thank you very much!"

Rustical Update

We have already corrected the directions to indicate that the turnoff to the house is a slip road from the bypass, rather than the road dividing.

This is one of a kind house. Unique and settled in one of the most beautiful parts of Aracena. The house had everything we needed to feek extremely comfortable.We could tell that the owners loved their place and put a lot of care on keeping things at its best. We enjoyed the pool with amazing views towards the valley, walked over hectares of the property and had a great barbecue.This house made our experience in Aracena memorable. 5 stars!
