Overview

The best of both worlds can be enjoyed at this traditional Spanish villa set against the staggering backdrop of the Ronda Mountains.

Guests can wake to impressive peak views, while still enjoying the space and serenity of a flat grassy valley.

The easy fertile valley on which this charming rustic 17th century farmhouse sits offers tangled vineyards, colorful markets, and fragrant fruit orchards all close to the little village of Cortes.

Making the most of the grassy valley seems to be what this villa does best. The well maintained gardens offer plenty of space for children to play, along with a terrace, patio, porch and barbeque area to ensure that you can make the most of long afternoons and late nights.

The pool is another fine feature, and for those who want to extend their swimming season – the pool can be heated at an additional cost to take the chill of shoulder season temperatures.

Guadiaro river runs across from the property and according to locals – never dries up. It is knows to be excellent for fishing but no so practical for swims.

Despite other properties being close by, this Finca retains an air of privacy thanks to the space and setting.

From the outside, the property has a sweet simplicity with its old cobble stone patio and sweeping outdoor space. Inside, the home is full of character with exposed beam ceilings, wood burner, splashes of sunflower yellow and large country kitchen.

The ground floor stays cool, but the first-floor bedrooms can get warm on summer nights which is why the property boasts thoughtful features like AC.

Unlike most of rural Andalusia, only 2km from the property you will find a railway station which connects you to the land of a Alhambra Palace in gorgeous Granada.

Back in the heart of the Grazalema Natural Park you can explore the heart of the Ronda Mountains.

Unlike nearby Gaucin, this spot is missing the expat communities and masses of tourists, making it a truly authentic experience of Spanish life.

YOUR REVIEWS

Mark | July | 2017

A fabulous place with stunning mountainous view. Incredibly well equipped and all facilities and furnishings very high quality. The eating area outside is great all very spacious. Off the beaten track but surrounded by a few houses so you don't feel cut off. The Spanish family next door were very noisy which was fine, but not if you want complete peace and quiet. We did love this place though."
