Villa Description

Up, up and away from it all

Modern contemporary interior meets outstanding natural beauty!

This building is unusually modern for a rural property in Andalucia – Built high on the ridge overlooking the valley of Gaucin, down to the Mediterranean sea and Morocco beyond, it is just over a kilometre from Gaucin itself. Modern or Postmodern, the architecture is a combination of styles, forms and spaces all brought together to create this comfortable, light-filled home. Everything has been designed to take full advantage of its wonderful setting.

Accessed through an electric gate and a short driveway up to the rear of the house. One enters into a small interior courtyard, a covered walkway to one side and a flowerbed overflowing with rosemary (and a small lemon tree), to the other. At the centre of the courtyard a table and chairs, this is a good place to enjoy a quiet moment.

Not far from the Mediterranean sea

Just a walk away from lovely white-washed Gaucin.

An entrance hall/coatroom leads through impressive double wooden doors into an even more impressive light filled, open plan kitchen-dining and living room.  A few steps down to the living room with its double-height ceiling and double-height windows flooding the room with light. The fireplace, hanging between the two levels, divides the areas and adds a unique, creative accent to the contemporary interior design.

The kitchen is a well equipped family kitchen, with a good sized larder, the centre kitchen island with a double ceramic sink adds plenty of work space and is a good place to drink your morning tea. On this level there is a light-wood dining table large enough to make this inside dining area fully functional to fit all the villa residents in one sitting.

Light, bright and fabulous!

Hidden away in leafy seclusion

The living room is furnished with a couple of comfy black leather armchairs, built-in window seats with cushions along the length of the wall. Light floods in through the many doors and windows, looking out to the remarkable pool that wraps itself around the front of the house like a veranda. Doors open onto the terrace with a covered BBQ dining area –  looking out over the gorgeous blue infinity pool to the valley below or across to the village of Gaucin. And what a sensational infinity pools it is, its azure-blue waters running along the side of the house and merging into the glorious nature all around.

From the living room a door leads to the a small terrace and on to a double bedroom with ensuite shower room - Nicely tucked away from the rest of the house. Perfect for those who like to retreat to their own quiet place.

From the entrance hall stairs lead to another bright, light bedroom – this one a twin bedroom with en-suite shower room.

The pool is crystal clear and so inviting

This is what holidays are all about.

On the other side of the living room, the south wing, is split on two levels:

10 stairs down to a big double bedroom with a large open fireplace, cosy armchairs and direct access to the terraces and swimming pool. This room has no en suite facilities.

Stairs up to the master bedroom - A lovely, spacious double room, the bed facing the French doors leading onto a large private terrace. You can wake up to the sun rising over the marvellous sweep of majestic mountain terrain and glorious countryside or, at night, lie in bed and admire the explosion of stars in the sky. The bathroom is complete, with a good sized bath and a walk in shower unit.

Nature, bliss and happiness!

Glorious views, fantastic setting, great walks and drives. What more can you ask for?

This house is a delight, flooded with light - its contemporary design giving it a unique modern air – it really is a privileged setting.

From the pool area stairs will take you up to a roof terrace with views far and wide. 360º of richly forested hillsides and dramatic terrain, the Crestelina Ridge rising up proudly in the distance as if standing guard over the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol just beyond. Views from here up to the Gaucin’s Castillo del Àguila, high on the hillside beyond, are splendid.

A perfect base for anyone who enjoys the peace and quiet of real Andalusian countryside. Surrounded by forests, hills and river valleys, there are excellent walking tracks, spectacular views. Countryside glory and tranquillity is the order of the day here but you are not isolated. Just a short drive away (or a 15-20 minute energetic walk) is one of the prettiest Pueblos Blancos, Gaucin, with all amenities, bars, restaurants and shops and the walk is even more agreeable on the way home as it is mosly all downhill!

And from Gaucín, you can explore far and wide...  the Costa del Sol, the Costa de la Luz, Ronda, Sevilla, if you are feeling adventurous even Morocco is not too far away!

Around and About

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

Excursions

  • La Costa del Sol with its wealth of sandy beaches, sun, fun and nightlife is just 30 minutes away. Resort towns include Estepona (45 minutes) and glitzy, glamorous Marbella (under an hour).
  • Gibraltar, steeped in history, VAT free shops … and plenty of fish & chips is 1¼ hours away.
  • Tarifa on the southernmost point of Spain is 1½ hours from here. Looking directly across the Straits of Gibraltar to Morocco, Africa is so close you feel that you can almost touch it!
  • Beyond lie mile upon mile of magnificent white beaches on Spain's Atlantic coast, La Costa de la Luz.
  • A taste of Morocco perhaps? The fast boat from Tarifa to Tangiers takes 35 minutes, so you can be exploring the local souks in just a few hours. Fascinating and colourful, it really is a different world.
  • 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.
  • One of Europe's most important wetland reserves and bird sanctuaries, the Doñana National Park, is a popular attraction for nature lovers (4 hours). Its enormous variety of bird species include everything from flamingos to imperial eagles.
  • A beautiful road winds over the spectacular mountains to Ronda (45 minutes), with its spectacular gorge and Spain's oldest bullring, Hemmingway’s favourite town in all of Spain.
  • Sevilla takes 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!
  • The fantastic railway between Algeciras on the coast and Ronda, to the north, stops at the little pueblo of Colmenar (20 minutes away). One of Europe’s great short railway journeys, running through landscapes which offer constantly plunging and spectacular views, this is a remarkable and wonderful way to see some of Andalucía's best and most dramatic countryside.
  • There are a plethora of beautiful white villages and hilltop towns to explore and enjoy in the magnificent countryside of the Serranía de Ronda – Jimena de la Frontera, Casares and Genalguacil to name but a few.
  • Nearby National Parks include the fabulous Los Alcornocales Natural Park and 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".
  • Córdoba and Granada are both 3 hours drive from here

Activities

  • Guided and self-guided walking, horse riding, mountain biking and yoga are all available in or around Gaucín.
  • The village has an excellent municipal swimming pool, a tennis court and gymnasium.
  • For golf enthusiasts, there are at least 25 top quality golf courses (including Finca Cortesin, Valderrama, Sotogrande, and San Roque) within 50 minutes drive.
  • On the coast (both the Costa del Sol and the Costa de la Luz) there’s every beach pursuit imaginable, from sailing and windsurfing, diving and snorkelling to whale and dolphin watching.
