LUXURY PRIVATE VILLA WITH POOL AND STUNNING MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Cortes de la Frontera Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms + two adjacent cottages, sleeps 6 to 10

Come and experience the 'real Spain' with its unspoilt pretty white villages, impressive landscapes, local 'fiestas' to visit, walking trails to discover, clean rivers to swim in and great food to eat. We 're at enough distance from the coast and its unavoidable 'tourist traps' for you to be able to enjoy real Spanish life at a slower pace.

The villa is located in an area of outstanding beauty where you will find peace and privacy. At the same time the bustle of the Mediterranean beaches or the famous Andalucian cities are easily experienced in a day trip. A perfect location where you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

The villa is built in traditional 'cortijo' style, with all the luxuries of modern life (picture yourself relaxing on the sun loungers besides the perfect pool, dining 'al fresco' under the stars, staying in contact with friends through wifi internet and enjoying the local fresh fruit and vegetables which grow on the estate).

The main house sleeps 6 people comfortably. Together with the two adjacent cottages we can accommodate 8 or 10 people.

Enter the villa through its impressive Indian wooden doors and you realize no expenses have been saved to create this lovely property. Inside the characteristic pillars of the spacious entrance hall give a feeling of being in the ‘Mezquita de Codoba’.

To your left you walk into the historical part of this old ‘cortijo’. Standing in the blue living room one can dream of the lives which took place between the thick Spanish walls. Inhabited by Romans, the whole area is scattered with Roman remains. During the renovation of the house an original roman bread oven got excavated which can be admired now.

Apart from the blue living room, with its big arched window looking out on the pool and the gardens, there’s a second comfortable living space with Satellite TV, DVD, Music System with CD Player and WiFi Internet (bring your own laptop) and a glass fronted fireplace for those chilly winter nights. The whole house is equipped with central heating and air-conditioning.

Inside, solid oak furniture, comfortable sofa’s, artwork, carpets imported from India, and eclectic finishes create an interesting Spanish / Asian ambiance.

The open plan kitchen is well equipped with an oven, and ceramic hob, a microwave and dishwasher. The fridge/freezer and washing machine are situated in the larder alongside. Preparing your meals, with a glass of wine at hand and chatting with your friends and family at the same time is all easily done. Enjoy your meals in the dining area which opens up from the kitchen or dine ‘al fresco’ under the pergola on the spacious circular sun terrace at the front of the villa. Here the views are amazing. After you’ve fully enjoyed the views of the UNESCO Biosphere mountains of Grazalema, prepare yourself for those warm Andalucian nights, clear skies filled with endless stars and only the reassuring sound of the sheep bells in the distance. If you’re looking for peace and tranquility, you’ve found it right here.

The three bedrooms of the main house are upstairs, each of them with splendid views. Two are double bedded and there is one twin (with the two beds pushed together). Each bedroom has an en-suite shower room. The most spacious one is located in the tower. Open the balcony door and soak in the clean air and calming views while you prepare yourself for a special day.

This country villa is constructed of natural stone and traditional render. The tower is visible from far away and gives the building its characteristic grandeur. Just to the side of the house, there are two bedroom suites with four poster beds, comfortable sitting areas with sofas and easy chairs and shower areas. These two cottages are an absolute delight, built on the remains of the old animal stalls; with bits of natural rock and plants inside, tall stone walls give way to the high thatched roof, which almost makes you feel you’re in Africa. The cottages are made available together with the main house for larger groups only (8 or 10 people).

Outside the swimming pool is divine, a welcome break on a hot summer day. Around the pool you will find an immaculate green lawn, with sun loungers under little palm sunshades.

Loved the house and tranquil surroundings

  • Submitted: Dec 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We have all loved so much the house and the tranquil surroundings, listening to goats bells, etc. Like stepping back in time. The fresh veg available one of the highlights (even for over 4 girls!), the tomatoes particularly scrumptious.
Loved the walk to the cave & a 'refreshing dip' in the paradise pool (walk 4 "Walking in the mountains of Andalucia". Horse riding with Clare also 100%. Thanks much.

Comments from the daughters: People that haven´t been here, definitely come... 5 stars...I loved the pool so so so much. I loved both of the sitting room and the 500 acres of land around us... good explore. I love the fresh veg, mostly the peppis. I am going to miss this place so so much... want to come back for 2 weeks.

Beautiful villa in unspoilt surroundings

  • Submitted: Dec 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
We´ve had a wonderful week in this rural idyll. We will miss the birdsong, the cries of the peacocks and the goat bells. It´s been a complete antidote to London.
The walking guide to Andalucia has been a fantastic addition to our holiday. Walk 1 to Jimera de Libar return is beautiful and we´re off on another before our flight home tonight. Still plenty to do next time.
We also highly recommend the Via Verde cycling in Olvera (1,5 hours drive). It´s a flat old rail road with a cycle rental, beautiful countryside and not too big hills. We managed 18 KM even with our children (7 & 8 years)
The chance to stay in this beautiful villa in such unspoilt surroundings is appreciated. We would only ask for a bit more shade - a moveable umbrella for the garden/terrace would be great.

A most enjoyable stay in an idyllic villa

  • Submitted: Dec 12, 2013

A most enjoyable stay in an idyllic villa. The isolation is a plus. We have really appreciated the rural pace as well as the bucolic orchestra (goats, cattle, donkeys).

The villa is located in a private estate of 200 hectares, a Spanish 'finca' with its own water streams, walnut trees, a variety of other fruit trees (figs, plums, apricot), vegetable plots, foot paths, etc. From the villa the view is magnificent, looking towards the UNESCO Biosphere reserve 'Sierra de Grazalema'. The estate is reached by a 3 KM well maintained and easy accessible dirt track from the village of La Canada del Real Tesoro.

In this small village you can find basic supplies, a couple of tapas bars, an international cuisine restaurant and a train station. Although the train only runs three times a day, a trip is well worth doing. The ride between Algeciras and Ronda used to be a famous bandit's and smuggler's route in the old days. Now this train ride is classed as one of the most scenic rides in Spain.

Ten minutes further a long a windy road lies the village of Cortes de la Frontera, bigger the La Canada del real Tesoro and with a bigger selection of supermarkets, bars and restaurants. There's a 24/7 medical center here, which is always a comforting feeling for visitor.

The villa is located in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda, perhaps one of Spain's best kept secret, a mountainous area just an hour north of the Costa del Sol, or an hour south of Seville. Within this region are some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in Europe, and of course, the ancient city of Ronda.

Rich with history, the Serrania de Ronda region is home to prehistoric cave art, dolmen burial chambers, and the ruined Roman city of Acinipo, originally founded by Phoenicians, which is open to the public with an amphitheater and active archeological digs. Ronda, Spain is also the birthplace of modern Spanish bullfighting.

The region is most famous for the white towns and villages (Los Pueblos Blancos) of Andalucia. Nestled snugly into the mountains, the contrasting colors of the white pueblos on the grey and orange of the mountain rocks makes for breathtaking views.

The natural parks of the Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves offer the opportunity to see native flora and fauna in abundance. Walking, mountain biking and horse riding are the most obvious ways to explore this amazing area. For the more adventurous travelers there are possibilities to go caving, canoeing, canyoning, rock climbing, cross biking, etc.
