Overview

Here you stay in a green and pleasant valley of real countryside, where you’ll find horses and butterflies as well as very good rural restaurants.

It’s a far cry from the urbanized coast and yet sandy beaches and top golf are just 15 minutes down the road.

Security gates open to a completely private estate of mature gardens, which spread out to lily ponds by a grove of trees and sitting areas.

The surrounding of green hills makes the setting feel especially intimate and hidden away.

RD69 looks and feels like a proper holiday villa. The kind of place you can shake off your cares and simply enjoy yourselves.

You’ll find oceans of space, an inviting swimming pool and a terrace that wraps round the whole house before opening to the gardens.

Here you can play at volleyball or badminton, or sit out in the shade of trees over by the lily pond.

Almost the entire many-windowed upper ground floor (the level you enter to from parking) is given over to a high-ceilinged main room with a central fireplace. It’s big enough to scatter eight sofas around and still have plenty of room for a dining area.

The dining area (there's an antique table to seat everyone comfortably) continues round to a long, fully equipped kitchen and this opens very practically to a barbecue area and bench seating for eight.

There are two bedrooms and a bathroom that make up the fourth side of the same floor.

Windows on all sides open wide to let through fresh, clean air and give you views over the gardens.

Experience has shown that thanks to the design (windows allowing ventilation) very often the air con isn’t necessary, and neither is pool heating from late spring to autumn.

We think separating out the electricity charge is a fair means of keeping the accommodation price down, as this way you only pay for the electricity you use.

Internal stairs go down to a hallway on the lower floor and four more bedrooms.

All four bedrooms have french windows out to the terrace that circles the villa. Out here om the terrace is one of the property's highlights: the outdoor jacuzzi hot tub. If you can bring yourself to climb out, there's a furnished drinks area with bar and fridge: but maybe someone will be good enough to bring you a cold drink to the tub?

A small mezzanine TV room (the tower you can see in the photos) has a double sofa bed that can be made up for two children if required. The sofa bed's good quality and there are blackout curtains up here, so they'll sleep well.

Just below the villa, a few steps down, is the swimming pool.

The irregular shape pool is heatable outside summer months. There are steps leading down into the water.

The poolside is skirted by a line-up of fruit trees arranged like cheerleaders and beyond them lie lawns and gardens that spread out over twelve acres. They are healthy, lush gardens with mature trees and the lawns are massive.

A walkway past the lily pond brings you to a spot for those totally quiet moments when you just want to sit and do nothing. There's a second barbecue by the pond.

You’re on a very extensive estate here, to which the secure entrance is shared by just two other and completely separate residences. One belongs to the owners, who you won’t see. Their house, facing the other way onto their own gardens, can just be made out through the trees.

The other resident is the English-speaking caretaker for RD69, very friendly, very discretely apart, and simply on hand if you need him.

Your villa, pool and gardens are perfectly private and you’re not overlooked.

The Casares valley location is one we especially liked for its proximity to the sea. Beaches are an easy 15-minute drive and along the same country road going towards Casares village, you have a choice of very good restaurants with terraces.

We’ll send you our tips and recommendations for Casares as one of your holiday documents.

YOUR REVIEWS

Anne | October | 2016

We were a party of ten - four children aged 5-10 and 6 adults. this is a holiday we do every year at autumn half term and we have been to many villas from Turkey to the Canary Islands but i think this was the favourite. it was the first time we have not chosen a "beach" villa and as the weather at this time of year can be unpredictable it was an excellent choice. The heated pool kept the childen entertained all day and the huge gardens were perfect for many games, hide and seek, a treasure hunt and relay races. we visited the beach once and were disappointed. End of season, no buckets and spades and just rather dreary although Estepona market kept us entertained on the wettest day. in the evening there were wonderful walks in the hillside and a day spent driving up to Ronda was a highlight. We didnt eat out as much as usual but were perfectlyhappy to eat in the wonderfully well equipped living area with 9 sofas - almost one each ! the villa was comfortable without being precious and Graham was always on hand to help out when we needed him. The sunbathing turtles were a memorable wildlife experience along with the vultures circling."

John | September | 2016

RD69 is a superb Villa and we thoroughly enjoyed using it as did the rest of my family. Graham the caretaker was amazingly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The gardens are fabulous kept beautifully. Just some minor issues/suggestions: The shared bathroom shower curtain was not very effective and showering was difficult without getting water everywhere We thought maybe a small stock of nice plastic wine glasses to use by the pool for safety reasons. We would thoroughly recommend this Villa for large groups and especially families/"

Jacqui | September | 2015

The villa was beautiful and was just as it looked in the photos if not better. The grounds were lovely and the setting was very peaceful with stunning scenery. We all loved our time there and a few in our group including ourselves are keen to go back. Graham, the caretaker of the property was very helpful and always on hand if required without being obtrusive. The only points that may affect other holidaymakers from not choosing this property that we can think of are: It may not suit people with mobility problems as there are several different levels all of which have to be accessed via stairs People with dogs or who are scared of dogs may be put off by the guard dogs but we had no problem at all with them and Graham told us about them straight away and reassured us that they were in a secure area Some people might find the road to the property a bit nerve wracking but once you have done it once it is fine. Given the property's location a car is a must. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend it to others."

Rustical Update

It is correct that the dogs are kept in a secured area and they are, in any case, friendly and well behaved.

We have visited the property on a number of occasions and found the rural track ordinary and in good condition.

Gary | October | 2014

Had a great time thanks. A beautiful property and extremely well organised on your part. The only slight criticism is maybe the hard mattress's but maybe that's subjective? We were a small group but could not see how you could cook for large numbers with a normal domestic size cooker. Many thanks Gary"

Rob | October | 2014

We had an amazing holiday! Our villa and its setting was beautiful. The pre-holiday information from Rustical Travel was great and gave exact instructions of how to get to the property and to arrange to meet the caretaker. The villa itself was huge and well suited to a group holiday. The bedrooms are nicely spaced out and the living area was great for relaxing and chatting. We really took advantage of the pool and the hot tub which provided hours of entertainment. Graham the caretaker met us when we arrived and was on hand throughout our stay when we needed him. We had a couple of comments for the villas owners - the bathrooms lack hooks to hang up towels to dry, the kitchen could do with some better knives and we didn't like the plastic plants and flowers - the inside of the villa is lovely but spoilt by the cheap looking plants. We would certainly use Rustical Travel again and might even go back to the villa sometime."

Robert | May | 2014

We had a great time at the Villa near Casares. A beautiful peaceful setting. Ideal for an extended family group - with a massive living area - and vast beautifully kept grounds. We appreciated the friendly welcome and help from laid back Aussie Graham. Good restaurants just up the road. The coast and Ronda within easy reach. Plus a choice of airports. Recommended as a great place for a large family get together."
