Overview

Surrounded by 43 hectares of avocados belonging to the estate, this homely Spanish villa is a gem waiting to be found, its delightfully rustic character shaped by traditional elements such as the wooden beams and traditional beamed ceilings, terracotta flooring throughout and tastefully coloured walls. The level of privacy and seclusion adds to the sense of serenity here, inviting guests to fully connect with the vibrant Andalucian nature. 

If we had to provide basic must-follow instructions for this house, these would simply be: unwind, swim, sunbathe, enjoy, disconnect, wake up to a stunner of a view, repeat.

Cypress-flanked and just a few steps down from the house, its irresistible pool awaits in complete privacy for swimming and sunbathing without being overlooked. It's a good size for proper swims and it is very inviting: from the moment you set foot in the pool area you instantly picture yourself leaning on the edge and indulging in the uninterrupted views down this gorgeous valley.

Most of the property is arranged on one floor, except for the top bedroom and the steps down to the pool, which should be borne in mind by people with reduced mobility. Although the pool is not gated as such, a wire fence is in place and can be used to keep children away from the pool area.

Inside the house has a good level of comfort, with ample spaces and attractive bedrooms, three of them on the ground floor:

The master bedroom has en suite facilities and is clearly our favourite, with French windows opening to its own pretty corner terrace shaded by mature bougainvillea. What a spot!

Back on the ground floor, the living area is, just like the rest of the house, an example of understated class: decorated with good taste, it opens to the main furnished terrace along the front of the house. Not quite what we would call top luxury, yet definitely a choice we would recommend to those expecting high quality standards and comfort combined with charming traditional touches and country living style. 

Fully equipped for self-catering for up to 8 guests, the kitchen leads off to a shaded terrace provided with a set of built-in benches and table: al fresco meals here are a delight.

Both indoor and outdoor living here offer great levels of comfort. Families with children will also enjoy the 43 hectares of endless grounds just for them to explore.

Wild lavender grows around the house, the Guadiaro river dominates the view down this gorgeous valley and sunsets from the villa are simply inspiring and memorable.

YOUR REVIEWS

Richard | April | 2016

The location and views from this villa were even more stunning than the photos on the Rustica site indicated. The villa is very spacious with good bathroom facilities, comfortable beds and plenty of outdoor seating. The central heating system worked well. The swimming pool was immaculately maintained by the visiting gardener. Not so good were the electrics. My wife almost got a shock from one of the lampshades. Quite a few of the light fittings had missing or burnt out bulbs. The wi-fi was almost non-existent, working only for a few mintes at a time before packing up yet again. The owner sent someone out to fix the wi-fi and after her visit it worked for a couple of hours (giving us time to catch up on our email) but then packed up again. It would be more honest in the description of the property to state 'limited wi-fi' or 'intermittent wi-fi'. For anyone wanting to get away from it all, the villa was perfect. Just don't expect to be able to stay in contact with the rest of the world while you are there!"

Rustical Update

We are informed by property manager that Wi-Fi is normally fine at this villa even though it may not be as fast as in developed cities. After this feedback, the property managers will get in touch with the local internet supplier to fix this problem.

Equally, light fittings will be checked by the maintenance team.

Becky | August | 2015

The property was very much as depicted - lovely decoration & grounds. The major drawback was lack of AC which made sleeping very difficult. Otherwise - wonderful!"

Rustical Update

August 2015 had the highest temperatures ever recorded. There is normally a lovely breeze from the sea at night in Summer time.
