Overview

Be inspired by this one-of-a-kind villa set in an unique and utterly unspoilt spot just down Gaucin, a thriving nature haven where privacy and tranquility are the chief highlights. This delightful setting and the splendour of nature here is breathtaking. Familiar as we are with the area after many years of regular visits, we were impressed ourselves as we approached such an idyllic spot.

From architecture to facilities, it's all well thought out to make it a fantastic choice for country living. High standards and quality shine throughout, and luxury here is lived in a very natural, placid way, with a focus on outdoor living. It simply strikes all the right chords for us.

Spaces are generous inside and outside, as the various terraces and the grand country kitchen go to show. Equipped with all the necessary cooking gear, the kitchen includes an Aga range cooker and its own dining area, but a separate and more formal dining room next to the living room is perfect for get togethers during your holiday. With a skylight, the kitchen is bright and cheerful, and connects directly with outdoor spaces, making al fresco meals a very attractive prospect.

And here comes the showstopper, a spectacular swimming pool located just above the villa. It not just about its 20 metres in length... the entire pool area is delicious, a real joy. It is ensconced within gardens and mature vegetation, all very well integrated with nature without missing out on views. Placid swimming and sunbathing afternoons are assured.

The swimming pool can be heated at a supplement, extending a bit the summer season at both ends, and there is a ample shallow end for the children. Here it is all about relaxation in perfect harmony with the natural surroundings. One could spend the entire holiday in this glorious pool area, surrounded by nothing but rich private gardens, in complete privacy and balance with nature.

The three double bedrooms are a handsome, classic country style: a balanced mix of modern and rustic, perfect for relaxing. One of them has en suite facilities. The fourth, a triple bedroom, was ethnically decorated when we visited the property in March 2015, and we found it very adequate for little ones.

Outdoor spaces comprise several furnished terraces with broad views of the Ronda Mountains. Slightly below the villa is a large freshwater pond: you can't swim in it, but we found it was an extra touch of prettiness. The villa is accessed by a 1.5 km track in good condition and there is plenty of space for parking just a few steps below the villa.

The whole finca is eight full hectares of private land, where the helpful and discreet house sitters' cottage is also located, far enough not to compromise your privacy but at hand in case you need them. Besides this and three cheeky cats living in the estate (they'll try to get into the house if you let them!), you are pretty much on your own and all you can see from this villa of character are magnificent and uninterrupted views of thick and vast Mediterranean woods covering the surrounding hills: picture perfect! But by no means are you too far from civilisation here: famous and welcoming Gaucin village is just over 10 minutes drive away from this Andalucian version of paradise on earth.

YOUR REVIEWS

Santosh | September | 2016

We spent a week at this property in early September. The villa is very spacious with a large dining kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils as well as a dining cum sitting room. Everything was very clean. Outside there are plenty of seating arrangements with beautiful views. When we arrived there was a bit of confusion about how to get to the villa which we could see in the distance as the instructions did not mention a gate we had to go through before the steep descend to the property, but once we phoned the caretaker all became clear. The villa is very secluded and it is about 10 mins drive to the village. We, 6 adults and a small baby, really enjoyed our stay at this property even more so because of the exceptionally large swimming pool."

Bernard | August | 2016

This villa turned out to be much better than we had thought, in fact it was excellent. The accommodation was first rate, each bedroom was extremely well appointed and the beds very comfortable. The very large kitchen was superbly equipped and had one of two inside dining tables each capable of sitting a dozen people. The pool was a real feature with the shallow end neatly set on one side of the pool the deep end (only 1.4metres) meant that all of us, children as well, could swim in comfort and safety. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, we ate every night at the outside terrace overlooking a valley that stretched away into the distance. The local farmer tended his sheep and goats in fields around the villa and it was a real pleasure to see such healthy looking animals being so well looked after. Jason looked after us very well indeed and though responding to every request for help, he was never intrusive. One small negative was the pond, though not in anyway inconveniencing us (no mosquitoes) it is not attractive with the black pool liner visible all around the perimeter. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely villa to anyone."
