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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Weather permitting, the swimming pool will be open from April to the end of October (although, because it's not heated, the normal swimming season is from May to September, inclusive).
We do not recommend this house for the very young due to the stone steps leading to the various terraces and the location of the pool being not in view from the house.
