Private and secluded, spacious, light and comfortable inside, the handsome swimming pool is just one of the outdoor attractions ...
"We have had a wonderful 12 days here. Enjoyed bird watching and seeing the wild life. So nice to eat most of meals outside. Great evenings in restaurants by the sea. Local restaurants are good too. We shall miss our lazy days, by and in the pool."
"We had a lovely time during our stay. We went on lovely walks and enjoyed spending time by the pool. We had many lovely breakfasts by the beach in the Ocean Cafe. The best day to go to Gibraltar is a Sunday because it is nice and quiet, parking is easy if you go quite early in the morning. The Forge is an amazing place to go for dinner."
"Thanks for letting us use your villa. We really liked our stay and also the pool was lovely and loungers were lovely too. The villa was son amazing I want to come again."
"Absolutely stunning location!Have spent hours round the pool and enjoyed all the sun terraces around the house. Very sad to be leaving! Thank you to all concerned."
"The house is beautifully positioned in the wooded valley, terrific views of the sea and mountains. Loved watching the vultures doing their local patrol! The pool is perfect and we had a very good 2 weeks here - lovely walks from the doorstep, Casares good to explore - the hubbub of the square is amazing. Another good visit to this area of Spain! Thanks to Mark for his help and a beautiful garden,"
"We had a wonderful time during our stay. We enjoyed some wonderful walks and day trips and had fun around the pool. Thanks to Mark for making us feel welcome -we will recommend the place very highly!"

Private swimming pool
10 m x 5 m, 1.2 - 1.9 m deep.
In open countryside, 5 km from the village of Casares in the Western Costa del Sol region (Province of Málaga).
From 1,160 € to 1,660 € per week.
Casares is without doubt one of the prettiest of the classic white villages in Southern Spain, its hilltop position dominating some of Andalucia's most seductive countryside.
A minor road winds gently out of town, through the forested hills heading south towards the Mediterranean Sea and it is just off this road that you will find this superb country villa.
Private and secluded, it is set in its own grounds of approximately one acre, surrounded by pine trees and mountains. The gardens and grounds are delightful, the views are wonderful and there's nothing to disturb your idle revelry. Just the tinkle of distant goat bells floating across a gentle breeze to keep you company.
The beautiful swimming pool (10 m x 5 m) and bathing terrace take centre stage in the garden, just below the house and there are a variety of different terrace spaces, some shaded, some in full sun, to choose from.
It is a modern house, very spacious, light and comfortable.
The large living space with its comfortable leather sofas and ample sized dining table is bathed in light which floods in from the south facing terrace. A bar top opens through to a fully equipped kitchen.
A bathroom and a small single bedroom (with its own en-suite shower room) make up the distribution on the ground floor.
Upstairs there are three more bedrooms, two double bedded with their own en-suite bathrooms, and a twin room. There is another bathroom (shower only) just outside this one.
In the midst of glorious, peaceful countryside, this is one of the most envious and beautiful settings in all Andalucía.
The nearest village, Casares is a delight, still retaining its slow and uncomplicated ways of life, and there are several excellent out-of-town tavernas and restaurants around and about. We had a superb lunch in one, Arroyo Hondo, which is owned by an English and Japanese couple. Their food combines the best of both cultures and is delicious.
Another lovely village is Gaucín, a little further away, which has also earned plaudits for its charm and quality of life. And, of course, there's Ronda, Gibraltar, Jerez, Estepona, and Marbella … too.
For golf enthusiasts, there are at least 25 top quality golf courses (including Valderrama, Sotogrande, and San Roque) within 30 minutes drive. Highly recommended is "Finca Cortesin", host to the Volvo Masters Matchplay Championships, less than ten minutes away from the villa.
The Mediterranean coast is an easy twenty minutes drive from here. The beaches of the western reaches of the Costa del Sol, the nearest to the villa, are much less "touristy" and less congested than those further east. It is still possible to find swathes of sandy beach, the occasional chirringito (beach bar) here and there cooking up delicious, fresh sardines, washed down with a very cold beer. Heaven!.
Estepona is the nearest of the resort towns on the coast, a little more than fifteen minutes away. Marbella, with all its glitz and glamour, and Gibraltar, take 40 minutes.
A quality home in beautiful surroundings, so many things to see and do … just the place for a perfect holiday!
