Overview

This very private villa has four en suite bedrooms, an irresistible circular pool, beautiful Mediterranean gardens and uninterrupted views.

In short, it’s a sure-fire winner from celebrated architect Aubrey David, who knew just how to put together a property to make it light-filled, expansive and enjoyable.

He also had an eye for location. This rich, green and sunny valley now has protected status and the handful of villas that daub it with white here and there cannot be added to. Streams run through the hillside, generating healthy woodlands and exuberant vegetation. Golfers might want to practise their puts on sloping lawns before going for a round at local course.

The gardens deserve a special mention even before we go into the villa itself.

The garden entrance alone is deep and lawned, screened by a line of tall trees. There are also some stone paths which are not completely stable for people with reduced mobility. But then, as the photos show, there’s a main lawn that runs far and wide from the villa’s upper level, to boomerang round a palm-treed centrepiece before sweeping all the way back to the lower floor accommodation and the double circle of mother-and-daughter swimming pools. 

It gives a dynamic feel to a perfectly peaceful property.

The villa has a huge, vaulted living and dining room, flanked in a split-level arrangement by a study and a kitchen.

The living area is flooded with natural light from an array of french windows and skylights. Long pink sofas, scattered with cushions, are an open invitation to repose and, off to one side, a study sitting room provides a writing desk.

The accommodation has large and very comfortable spaces, and the equipment is perfectly good if not first class: some people expect satellite TV these days and everything brand-new, but the villa isn’t so modern in these respects.

The dining table seats six very comfortably and we estimated it sufficient for eight people to enjoy meals together.

Outside, looking out onto the gardens, there’s a covered, furnished dining space and a large sitting area, as well.

Downstairs on the lower level are three en suite bedrooms. A feature to note is that the baths and showers are designed to be open-plan with the sleeping areas, an arrangement that works nicely in the warm climate of this Mediterranean valley, but may come as a surprise at first. The WC is always a separate affair, of course.

Windows set high in the bedroom walls invite natural light to illuminate the interiors, which might affect late risers as they are not curtained like the lower windows.

We especially liked the privacy of this villa in its exuberant gardens and valley location. And the way you step down from the upper terrace to the lower garden, for example, under a perfect arch described by palm fronds.

The swimming pool is as big as it looks, and the adjoining children’s pool, also circular, is about 3 metres across.

There’s a hypermarket en route from the airport where you can stock up on shopping, and local shops 5 km away in Casares village. Even closer are a choice of country restaurants opening lunchtime and evenings.

The seaside is only 20 minutes away. Sandy beaches and Mediterranean marinas line up along coast at Estepona, while those who venture further west past Tarifa are rewarded with some of the very best beaches in Spain and the exciting Atlantic.

The area is a paradise for golfing enthusiasts. There are two dozen golf courses including the nearby Finca Cortesin, which is one the best in Europe. In 2012 it held the World Match Play Championship.

YOUR REVIEWS

Kirsten | September | 2016

September-October 2016 we spend 9 days in RD45 with our two children, son- and daughter-in-law and 4 grandchildren aged 5½, 2, 1½ years and a newborn only 10 weeks old. The house is well equipped for 12 persons, including high chairs, cods and plastic plates and cups for little children. There is plenty of room for relaxing and playing both indside the house and in the beautyful garden. Birdwatchers will appreciate watching the raptors (e.g. many Griffon Vultures) in the sky and the wild birds living in the garden (e.g. Black Caps, Longtailed Tits and a couple of Peacocks). The large pool was clean and a little cold this time of year, but we used it every day - and the little children enjoyed the little pool. The housekeeper was a nice and very helpfull lady. Beware of the door to the main oven in the kitchen, it was hard to close properly."

Michael | July | 2016

Lovely villa and owner was very helpful. The directions needed to have the villa name as when we followed the directions given we were turned away by the housekeeper and this added an hour to our journey as we continued to search having found the villa in the first place!"

Rustical Update

We have already included the name of the villa in our directions to avoid this type of misunderstanding in the future.

William | September | 2014

Rustical Travel, We loved the villa and you were very helpful to make the booking process very easy and efficient. We would definitely use you again!! Everything we requested was provided. The villas was so spacious and beautiful with a great sized pool. We found the kitchen needed more equipment (decent over trays, a bread knife and other knives) and a bit of updating but other than this we were happy with everything. The grass could also have been a bit shorter in the lawn as this would be better for children to play on. Thanks again, Will"
