Overview

Integrating a villa, with large gardens and a pool in the middle of a wild forest means investing hard work taming the surrounding nature, while also a good know-how in making sure all the elements coexist in harmony.

This is exactly what these property owners achieved with their stunning country home: each moment you spend here feels like heaven. Wonderfully nestled in the enveloping Mediterranean wilderness, the location is magical and you simply can´t get enough of the fascinating views. 

Everything about it oozes character; it is classy and stylish, and on our visits we found it exceptionally well-maintained.

The house itself is arranged in several, internally linked, wings that extend from and around a central hexagonal tower. It is a luxurious holiday home, very nicely presented throughout and naturally inviting.

Although relatively newly-built, it was created maintaining the style of old, very traditional Andalusian fincas.

When it comes to attention to detail, this house is exceptional. Every part of it was built thoughtfully and without a rush, taking nearly 5 years to be completed.

Materials used were carefully selected, such as restored old wooden doors, handmade terracotta tiles, wooden framed windows... each adding meaning to the overall picture.

Outside and just adjacent to the front patio, there is a one bed annex which increases the capacity of the property to 10 people. Parties of 8 people or less can also opt to use this extra en-suite bedroom if the main house´s sleeping arrangements aren’t suitable or if certain guests prefer some independence.

Access to the property is via a 3 km drive right through a lovely cork forest that transmits good vibes from the get-go.

Park your car right in front of the house and don´t be surprised if you find yourself stepping on the terracotta cobbled patio and imagining a page of a trendy countryside magazine.

The master bedroom on the 1st floor is superior in quality with two balconies and a beautifully styled bathroom. On the ground floor there is another king sized bedded room and 2 twin bedrooms.

One of these twins is probably better suited for children as it has single, 1.80 metre long beds. The other has 2 double beds, suitable for adults or children who wish to sleep together.

Bear in mind that this property has a strict rule set by the managers that only allows a maximum of 4 children under the age of 12 years old.

The kitchen is very well equipped, just as one would expect, but the true star here is the Lacanche range cooker. Serious cooks, behold!

Enjoying the pool area is a must, both during the day and at night, when the pool and the surrounding plants are illuminated creating a pleasing atmosphere. A smart addition is the bar right next to it which is great for chilling out with friends or family over a drink. A restroom just beside it also comes in handy.

Families with toddlers should keep a close eye on them whilst near the pool as it is on a lower level and not gated. The lawned areas around the house are however safer for keeping the little ones at bay.

The lack of air-conditioning is not a problem since the house is very well-built with thick walls that maintain indoor freshness. The surrounding forest also acts as a natural thermostat, nicely keeping the heat at more tolerable temperatures both indoors and out.

At this finca you get to enjoy privacy and forest intimacy without losing out on views.

The sight over the protected natural spot of the mountains of Sierra Crestellina is simply stunning.

Local house sitters occasionally come by to tend the pool and gardens, although they do so always respectful of your privacy.

You may choose to go to the beach for a day out, visit the stunning historical Ronda town or go for lunch to one of the good local restaurants. However, one of the best activities you can do begins right at your doorstep: with over 8 acres of land, join an old roman pathway that goes as far as Ronda town.

What an exciting spot for holidays!!

YOUR REVIEWS

Holmes family | April | 2019

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week in your beautiful house and garden. After a showery start, the sun broke through, the view across the hills cleared and we were treated to the best of the Spanish Spring. The hills were a riot of colours as we explored some of the incredible walks in the area - Montoro Ridge, the Smuggler Trail and beautiful walks along the river from Jimena de la Frontera. We had some lovely meals in Gaucin and also enjoyed dining at the house and reading in the sitting room or playing games afterwards. A bit early in the season to enjoy the pool (although the kids did go in...briefly!) but it was a lovely place to sit. Thank you for a fabulous stay!"

We have had the most peaceful and relaxing holiday in the most beautiful place. Thank you so much, we would love to come back!"
