Villa Description

Something very special

A sea of green and silver olive trees as far as the eye can see!

This delightfully restored house is on the edge of the small village of Fuente del Conde, in a truly privileged setting.

West-facing, it enjoys immense views across the expanse of green and silvery olive groves that stretch beyond the horizon.

Accessed directly from the street into an enclosed courtyard, you find the inviting dark-blue, saline-water pool, surrounded by sun loungers and plenty of bench seating. Alongside is an enclosed parking area for two cars.

Through big double cortijo doors, you step into another, traditional inner courtyard, around which the house is built. From here, steps lead up to multiple terraces built into the hillside. There is a terrace for any time of the day depending on your mood - each terrace enjoys sun or shade depending on the hour.

Looking for authentic Spain? You're in for a treat

This area of Andalucía is quiet and unspoilt. For a taste of rural Spain it's the real deal.

This is not just a holiday home, it is a real home from home. It has been designed for comfortable living and for enjoying the great outdoors to the full.

The inner courtyard gets the morning sun and has easy access to the kitchen, making it an ideal place to enjoy your leisurely holiday breakfasts.

The courtyard is decorated with potted plants - the green leaves and terracotta clay tiles contrasting prettily with the whitewashed walls. The table is surrounded by muslin curtains giving a light and floaty finishing touch to your perfect breakfast spot!

The house has a somewhat arabic feel to its decor, slightly exotic, reminiscent of this area's moorish past. It has many special touches which will make for a memorable holiday - everything has been designed to provide a beautiful living environment.

A beautiful home in a sleepy village

"The facilities are five star, the only downside? Having to leave!"

On the first level is an elegant, elongated room with a sloping, dark-beamed ceiling - it's the space for dining, cooking and relaxing.

At one end of the room is a cosy seating area with a wood burning stove, in the middle a magnificent dining table with seating for eight, and at the far end, the fully equipped open-plan kitchen complete with all the necessary gadgets … This room also has direct access from the street.

Just a few steps up from the kitchen, there is an office area, complete with PC and printer, for those who are not able to leave work behind.

A little further away is a comfortable sitting room with a large flat-screen TV, wood burning stove and plenty of comfy seating, which also has access through patio doors onto the traditional inner courtyard.

Everything you could want

"The villa absolutely made our holiday!"

The original open, unguarded,  stairway leads to the upstairs.

On this upper level are the three bedrooms: a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom sharing a shower room.

Although fully modernised, this part of the house has retained a more traditional feel, with sloping ceilings and exposed beams. The house also benefits from air conditioning in all the bedrooms so you will be able to keep the temperature regulated to your taste.

Full of character in an idyllic location

"...it induces an instant sense of wellbeing".

The most outstanding feature of this lovely village house are the wonderful terraces and outside areas.

First the “traditional patio” with its enclosed courtyard, next going through an old traditional door from the courtyard and up some stone steps is the “Moroccan terrace” with its Moroccan-style white cushioned benches under a wooden covered area, large built-in table, white curtains blowing in the breeze, potted plants and a fire pit/barbecue, with the views taking centre stage. Last but not least, up to the third “chill-out/live-out” terrace, complete with outdoor lounge, a “fireplace”, a full kitchenette, gas barbecue and covered dining area. You can take your pick of your favourite space to relax, read, work, cook, eat ... or watch the sun set.

Will you ever have time to leave the house and explore the rest of this wonderful region?

The winding road that meanders along to the village takes you through a landscape of olive groves like a giant patchwork. Five of the best olive oils in the world come from this land.

Immersed in this sleepy corner of Andalucía, Fuente del Conde is still a working village and you will hear the sound of village life going on around the house ... including the occasional cockerel, or on weekdays the villagers walking, and chatting, whilst on their way to get their daily supplies and fresh bread.

The house is a great base from which to explore this unspoilt, rural part of southern Spain, or to enjoy the Mediterranean sun, chilling out by the pool and wandering to the very popular local bar/ restaurant (Los Pajaritos), which is just down the road, so no need to drive in the evenings.

"The location was ideal and the friendly village bars a bonus to stroll down to after our sight seeing excursions to Granada, Seville, Ronda and Antequera."

The house is centrally located in Andalucía and is roughly the same distance from the historic cities of Córdoba, Granada and Málaga. It's possible to visit these places on day trips - so excursions to experience the cultural wealth of this region can be combined with a relaxing poolside holiday.

Out and About

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

Excursions

  • The picturesque white village of Iznájar is just 15 minutes drive from here, the southern gateway to the beautiful rolling hills and olive groves of the Subbetica Natural Park. Sitting on top of a huge rocky outcrop which towers up from the breathtakingly blue waters of the Embalse de Iznájar, the largest lake in Andalucía, it's a magnificent setting.
  • Views from the top of the town are sensational, over the surrounding countryside - rolling hillsides clad with olive groves as far as the eye can see - and over the vast, beautiful lake (32 kilometres long and 6 kilometres wide), which fills the wide valley floor of the Genil river on both sides of the village.
  • Also known as the Lake of Andalucía, it hosts water sports and fishing and has its own beach (in summer) at Valdearenas where you can swim, rent pedalos and canoes, or learn to sail.
  • Its beautiful, clear blue waters are safe for children to swim or play in and there's sand to lie on. It tends to be busier on Sundays but is usually very quiet during the week, even in the height of the season.
  • Rute, which is 25 minutes away is not really on the tourist map; it's a little town of 10,000 people, best known for its manufacture of Anís, the aniseed-flavoured liqueur. Its gastronomic delights don't end there: it is also famous for its cured hams and delicious, typically Spanish sweet delicacies, which are traditionally served at Christmas, such as chocolate, nougat and marzipan. Also overlooking the lake and dwarfed by the Sierra de Rute that looms above it, it's a completely unpretentious, exuberant working town but nevertheless fascinating, full of old-time, original character and tradition.
  • Head north to Priego de Córdoba (30 km north of Iznájar), a lovely town which is Andalucía at its most refined and authentic. A dignified, convivial provincial town with a beautiful historic centre and more than its fair share of marvellous baroque churches.
  • The spectacular countryside of the Subbética Natural Park is incredibly beautiful. It is a land of rugged hills, deep valleys and spectacular scenery. Some of Andalucía's most delightful 'pueblos' are to be found here, steeped in the ancient traditions, culture and fascinating history.
  • The historic city of Granada, which is just an hour away is a must-see, being a classical beauty, the jewel in the Spanish Crown.
  • The city that inspired García Lorca, Andalucía's finest poet. It is, above all a people's city, full of life, colour, energy and fun.
  • The mesmerising Alhambra Palace and its exquisite gardens are one of the world's greatest wonders. The narrow, cobbled streets and beautiful walled gardens of the ancient Arab quarter, El Albaicín. The magnificent Cathedral is just one of many superb examples of Renaissance architecture. Soaring high above Granada is the spectacular back drop of the snow-covered Sierra Nevada mountains.
  • Córdoba, once the largest city in the world, the thriving capital of Al-Andalus, the name used to describe Moorish Spain which extended throughout almost all of the Iberian Peninsular.
  • In its heyday it was considered the Mecca of the west. The Mesquita of Córdoba is, along with Granada's Alhambra Palace, the finest example of Islamic Art in the western world, the grandest and most beautiful mosque constructed by the Moors in Spain. It's one of only a handful of man-made places in the world which literally takes your breath away.
  • Quite apart from the Mesquita, there's much more to discover in Córdoba. It's very picturesque, a town to stroll around. You will come across little squares, peaceful courtyards and balconies overflowing with bougainvilleas. The aroma of lemon blossom, the exuberant colours of the flowers, the cool trickle of a fountain. It's a beautiful town, Córdoba.
  • To the south west, Antequera is another very pretty town with an almost medieval air and a history to match. So much more than just another sleepy, sun-soaked 'pueblo' of Southern Spain.
  • Just beyond Antequera is El Torcal, a magnificent 1,100 hectare National Park of massive, Mars-like mountains of eroded rock formations. Here the imagination plays tricks as giants, monsters and castles seem to appear before your eyes. Unique in Europe, this dreamy, surrealistic landscape has inspired generations of artists and film makers as well as climbers, walkers and nature lovers.
  • Sevilla takes 2 hours by car or you could take the fast AVE train from Santa Ana station in the olive groves outside Antequera. 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!
  • It has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with the wide river rolling through it. There is the elegant Arabic heritage of labyrinthine alleys and languorous gardens, the Giralda, the Alcázar and the Barrio Santa Cruz. The grandiose 17th-century colonial style, when the riches plundered from the Americas were converted into a swaggering architectural confection of ornate palaces and monuments, basilicas, bullrings and fountains. And then there's the wonderfully lavish 1920's Sevilla, when they built grand art nouveau hotels, parks and boulevards. All of these are combined in an area small enough to wander around.
  • Málaga and the Mediterranean beaches on the Costa del Sol are an hour's drive south.

Activities

  • Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy exploring the beautiful hillsides and little villages of La Subbética on foot, horseback, or bicycle.
  • The beautiful lake (32 kilometres long and 6 kilometres wide) which fills the wide valley floor of the Genil river on both sides of the Iznajár hosts water sports and fishing and has its own beach at Valdearenas where you can swim, rent pedalos and canoes or learn to sail.
  • There is a chiringuito (summer bar) on the beach and a couple of bar / restaurants just above.
  • On the northern slopes of Sierra Nevada, top class skiing is 1½ hours drive away.
