Overview

Designed with love and care as an exceptional holiday retreat, an excellent level of comfort and quality has been achieved in this villa situated in a splendid setting in deep beautiful Andalucian countryside. It does not come as a surprise that the owners are architects themselves: their very best ideas have been put into practice at this extraordinary holiday home.

Spaces are ample, bright and airy, with quality furnishings throughout and great attention to detail, making it all live up the expectations of a wonderful luxury villa experience.

The villa is beautifully appointed and arranged around a solid idea of enjoying superb outdoor living. Indoors the villa is magnificently presented and equipped too.

Located in a semi tropical spot and in a large finca, it enjoys full privacy and the soothing tranquility of the fabulous views, including a glimpse in the distance of the Mediterranean sea on clear days.

The property is decorated with fine taste and good understanding of expectations at a luxury villa. Except for Bedroom 4, it is all conveniently arranged on one floor, with French doors opening to well equipped porches.

The good taste on deco is also present in the bedrooms, which are equally excellent in terms of comfort, ticking all the boxes for a proper night's rest.

Special mention goes to the remarkably appealing master bedroom, complete with an extra large square bathtub and large windows opening to the gorgeous views of the wooded valley.

The terraces are gated from the pool area, slightly below. The pool is a good size for proper swims and not overlooked, so privacy is excellent while natural shade is provided by an old and rustic olive tree. 

The spacious country kitchen is one of the major attractions of the villa, with a fabulous kitchen island as a focal point and completely equipped with possibly more than you will need. It conveniently opens straight to the furnished and shaded porch and terraces, making meals outdoors a very attractive prospect.

The villa is located at the bottom of the valley, where the climate is mild and mountain breezes normally allow for lovely cool nights even in the peak summer season. Despite the higher mountain ranges in the background, the climate here can be described as semi tropical, and when you stroll through the extensive gardens and lawns you will find some exotic tropical vegetation including an unexpected banana tree. You can pick your own fruit when on season.

The Gaucin location is yet another highlight, an easy 8 minute drive from the villa. You can also embark on a beautiful walk to Gaucin village or discover the surrounding Mediterranean woods. Proper pathways from your very doorstep.

 Drive 30 minutes for beautiful sandy beaches and 45 to visit Ronda, one of the most famous and visited traditional towns in southern Spain.

YOUR REVIEWS

Adam | August | 2018

We had a wonderful holiday at RD85. The villa is set in a stunning location. The pool was loved by all members of the family, both young and old. The villa is extremely comfortable and luxurious. The only negatives to a brilliant stay were (a) the drive which is pretty hairy to negotiate and (b) the air conditioning which was a little ineffective and could do with updating. Overall we considered the villa to be 9.5/10"

Rustical Update

We have informed the property manager about the air conditioning so she can check it out and see if it works correctly. She said that they do a revision at the beginning of each season, and they will do it again before next season starts.

Bartolomeo | June | 2018

Dear Carlos and Rustical Travel Team, Generally, we felt our stay was very positive. The house is in a perfect, quiet location and offers a wonderful view. We arrived at the villa in the middle of the night. The next morning, we just said: Wow! The facilities and equipment are excellent. We are also very satisfied with your agency. Our booking was processed quickly and reliably. Thank you for your professional service! For garden design we would suggest additional plants (for example bougainvillea, hibiscus, frangipani …). However, we experienced the caretaker as not very attentive. We would have expected an enquiry if everything is okay, at least a reaction to our mail that we lacked kitchen towels to dry the dishes. On the day of our departure we found it quite disturbing that the caretaker and the cleaning lady arrived half an hour before the specified checkout time. All in all, however, we are very happy with the holiday home.

Jane | July | 2016

Beautiful villa, in a beautiful fairly remote, rural setting which lived up to expectations. The setting however did come at the expense of a very steep access road which made travel on foot or bike from the villa (particularly in July) virtually impossible. I was also a little disappointed that there were no paths for walking directly from the villa as described, without having to overcome this steep access road .Villa was very well equipped and tastefully furnished, very comfortable with lovely outside spaces. Couple of minor suggestions for improvement would be an upgrade to all mattresses in all bedrooms and an upgrade of bed linen used. Also air conditioning in top bedroom would be advantageous."
