Villa Description

Modern with artistic cool

A well laid out villa with that extra touch of artistic inspiration injected by the owner and her works.

Set in a quiet, residential neighbourhood (urbanizacion), this house has amenities close by and convenience for the beach. It's ideal for guests looking for a fun beach holiday, sampling aspects of Mediterranean life, Spanish seaside style.

The house is a funky family home, lived in for most of the year, so it has the cheeriness of being loved and enjoyed. What's more, all the comforts of a real home are available, for example: air conditioning in every room, a well equipped kitchen, WiFi throughout, iPod charging, and en suite bathrooms for every bedroom. The English owners will meet you themselves, being able to give you first hand tips as to how to get the most out of your stay.

The house is five minutes' walk from the Casares Costa beach and close to Sabinillas beach (I km).

Step outside and breathe the sea air

Being close to the coast affords refreshing sea breezes and keeps the ambient temperatures at a pleasant level both day and night.

To get to the beach, there is a footbridge over the main road which runs along the coast. The road is at the bottom of the hill from the property and to some extent, traffic can be heard, but not excessively so. The house is surrounded by high hedges in that direction, so the road cannot be seen or accessed by children. The garden is fenced and planted with hedges, shrubs and trees all around so although there are neighbours on one side, the garden is private and secure. There is room to park two cars on the property at the front of the house.

The front door opens directly into the living room which has plenty of sofa seating around the open fireplace and the TV. The picture window has a view to the pool and the sea beyond. The living room leads directly to the kitchen.

From granite kitchen to marble table

With a spacious and fully fitted kitchen boasting all amenities and an equally spacious dining area, meals are a joy to cook and eat.

The smart kitchen has a red granite counter and breakfast bar with high stools. It has an American-style fridge freezer, a 5-ring ceramic hob, electric oven and microwave. All the modern conveniences that you would expect are here: dishwasher and washing machine, along with the smaller appliances: toaster, kettle, coffee machine and all kitchen utensils. Just off the kitchen is the pantry where the iron and board are also stored.

From the kitchen is a lovely, light, bright conservatory dining room. Sunshine fills this white, airy space and the three-seater sofa is perfectly placed to stretch out on. You can relax and read, or chat in here. A marble topped dining table seating six, takes centre stage. French doors from the conservatory lead directly to the garden patio and a small, square tiled breakfast table seating four.

Buzzing beach or Peaceful pool

When the beach life, or the heat of the sun, is just that little bit too intense, return to the cooling pool and the shaded garden.

The double doors from the living room lead to a covered patio which overlooks the garden and pool terrace. Full of potted plants in between the house and garden, it's a wonderful space for just lounging and chilling out. And the final say in holiday fun ... a barbecue and a hot tub are at hand for those starry summer nights.

The pretty garden is lawned, with established trees and shrubs: palm trees, oleanders, lavender, yuccas. The garden overlooks the pool area, set in its own terrace down six steps.

The private swimming pool is a good sized 10 x 5m (2m -1.5m deep), it has a shower at the side and a sofa shaded by a pergola. Pool towels are provided for guests.

For every bedroom a bathroom

Having the luxury of retiring to your own bedroom and private en suite bathroom is a must for some.

Off the living room is double bedroom (1). The decor is feminine with white furniture and crystal light fittings. This bedroom also has a flatscreen TV with DVD player. The en suite bathroom to this bedroom is black and white with contemporary fittings. There is a spacious walk-in shower, wc and basin.

Double bedroom (2) is off the kitchen. It has a picture window with a view to the front of the house. The en suite bathroom has a full bath tub (with shower over), wc and basin.

Double bedroom (3) also leads off from the kitchen. This en suite bathroom has a big, walk-in shower with a pebble effect floor, wc and twin washbasins. The bedroom has French windows to the outside, and although this part of the garden is next to the neighbours', it is hidden from view by a hedge and citrus tree.

No better place to relax at sunset

With a couple of comfortable chairs and a low table, this terrace is the spot to rest up and watch the day end with a cool drink in hand.

The only room upstairs is a double bedroom (4) which has a private, furnished balcony terrace and the most marvellous views across the sea. The en suite bathroom comprises a full bath tub with mixer shower taps, a walk-in shower, wc and basin.

Standing out on the terrace, looking out across palm trees waving in the cooling breeze, bright bougainvillea and the warm shimmer of the terracotta pantiles of the roofs along the coast, you will feel immersed in your Mediterranean summer holiday!

A haven in the heart of La Costa

When sea and pool are not enough, this location is ideally suited as a base from which to explore the more traditional inland Spain.

Although the beach location is its major attraction, the house is ideally placed for other activities too. There are top-notch 18-hole golf courses on the doorstep. One owner of the house was a club captain and can assist with organising a round or two. The other owner is a keen artist and would be happy to advise on art workshops. If interested in either, please ask when booking. Equipment for both activities is available for guests to use.

Further afield, there are the pueblos blancos, Casares is the nearest town to your location. The way it clings to the side of the mountain is surely deserving of a photo before you even arrive at the town.

Casares has a lot to offer, not just because it is so pretty and typically Andalucían, but also because it is only 15 kilometres away. Despite being so near to the coast, the town is not 'touristy', drinks and food are reasonably priced for good Spanish fare and there is a very friendly, local vibe. Casares is proud of its reputation as supposedly one of only two towns to have held out against Napoleon's French forces (the other being the mighty Cadíz). Another source of pride is that it was the birthplace in 1885 of Blas Infante Pérez de Varga, who initiated the movement for an autonomous Andalucía.

The house is so easy to get to: Malaga airport is an hour's drive, Gibraltar airport is under an hour away.

Around and About

This is an excellent base from which to explore this delightful and very beautiful part of Andalucía.

Excursions

  • Here you are in the very heart of La Costa del Sol with its wealth of sandy beaches, sun, fun and nightlife. Puerto Banus, where the rich like to parade their wealth (there is excellent shopping too) is just down the hill, 3 km from the villa. More folksy (by comparrison), Marbella with its beautiful old town (the Casco Antigua) is just a little further.
  • There's plenty of glitz and glamour in Marbella too, but it also has a more down to earth side, an air of individuality which can best be appreciated by exploring the honeycomb of narrow streets in the very pretty old part of town. Homes and shops intermingle to create the atmosphere of a small village.
  • There are, of course, mile upon mile of beautiful beaches, marinas, restaurants, bars, night life, every sporting activity imaginable ...
  • It is Southern Spain's answer to St Tropez.
  • Fabulous nature isn't far away either. Immeadiately behind the town, the magnificent mountain known as "La Concha" is part of a range that extends right across the skyline. Within minutes you can be up in the hills with wonderful vistas across the sea.
  • Take the road to Ronda - always worth visiting anyway - which traverses the rugged, almost eerie mountains of La Sierra de las Nieves. There are a plethora of beautiful white villages and hilltop towns to explore and enjoy in the magnificent countryside of the Serranía de Ronda – Gaucín, Casares and Genalguacil to name just a few.
  • Other National Parks not so far away include the fabulous Los Alcornocales Natural Park and, just to the north of Ronda, the Grazalema National Park, one of the most beautiful tracks of mountain anywhere in Europe. Jagged peaks, gorges, chasms, faults and caves, underground rivers and deep canyons are interspersed, here and there, by some of the prettiest villages in Spain, Grazalema, Zahara, Setenil and the other famous "pueblos blancos".
  • Beyond lies Sevilla (2½ hours). It is impossible not to be captivated by its exuberant atmosphere: stylish, confident, ancient and proud, yet also convivial, intimate and fun-loving. If you don't know what alegría means, Sevilla is the place to learn!
  • If you head west along the coast there is another magical mystery tour of some of Spain's best attractions. Which doesn't include Gibraltar, in our opinion, although plenty want to visit for its history, VAT free shops … and fish & chips. It's an easy 1¼ hours drive from here.
  • Tarifa on the southernmost point of Spain is also an 1¼ hrs away. Looking directly across the Straits of Gibraltar to Morocco, Africa is so close you feel that you can almost touch it! Talking of which, the fast boat from Tarifa to Tangiers in Morocco takes just 35 minutes, so you can be exploring the local souks in just a few hours. Fascinating and colourful, it really is a different world.
  • Beyond Tarifa lies mile upon mile of magnificent white beaches on Spain's Atlantic coast, La Costa de la Luz.
  • Spain's unique sherry wine region (Jerez and Sanlúcar), is well worth a visit, enhanced no doubt by stopping at one or two of the famous bodegas along the way! Jerez de la Frontera is 2 hours.
  • Cádiz (2¼ hours) continues to evoke the romance, intrigue and mystery of centuries of trade (some legal, some not so) between Europe, Africa and the Americas.
  • Córdoba and Granada are both a couple of hours drive from here.

Activities

  • Sports enthusiasts can find plenty on offer in Nueva Andalucía itself - tennis, paddle tennis and a gymnasium. For golfers in particular, the area could not be more ideal. There are several magnificent courses within virtual putting distance, including Las Brisas, Los Naranjos, Aloha Golf and La Dama de Noche, which is floodlit for night time play.
  • Here you are in the heart of the "Costa del Golf" with at least 25 top quality golf courses (including Finca Cortesin, Valderrama, Sotogrande, and San Roque) all within half an hour's drive.
  • On the coast there’s every beach pursuit imaginable, from sailing and windsurfing, diving and snorkelling to whale and dolphin watching.
