A delightful luxury country villa within the grounds of a 200 year old Andaluz farmstead Casa Abuela is an exquisite high specification 2 bed 2 bathroom self-catering holiday let (sleeps 4+1). The self-contained holiday accommodation is set in 8 acres of private arable land. The exceptionally large 15 x 6 m pool is fully fenced, landscaped and private to the whole estate. This family friendly holiday home is tastefully decorated to a Moorish theme. Casa Abuela has been especially designed for wheelchair access. This unique letting is very comfortable, has all the mod-cons including central heating and is available all year around. Please note that Finca Retama farmstead has a second rental property, a 3 bed 2 bath farmhouse apartment, and therefore some of the facilities are shared when occupied.
Being of exceptionally high build quality and tastefully furnished throughout this two bedroom two bathroom villa has been designed for comfort and alfresco living: two sets of teak French doors open out onto the spacious and willow-shaded terrace which itself abuts the magnificent fully-fenced and landscaped 15x6 metre swimming pool. A hedge of mature pink roses provides privacy along the length of the terrace. There is natural slate underfoot and ornamental trees and hanging baskets to compliment the ambience.
Inside the owners have gone to considerable lengths to combine luxury with practicality. Villa Casa Abuela exudes Moorish charm after a trip to the souks of Rabat and Fez yielded intricate hand-woven flat-weave rugs; ceramic bowls; sinks and tiles; original artwork; glass lamps and much more besides.
The finest ‘Kashmir Gold’ granite surfaces the kitchen work areas below which all modern and new conveniences are housed. It is fully equipped with a 4 ring hob, separate oven, fridge and freezer, washing machine, microwave, toaster and kettle, and all the usual plates, pans and utensils expected of an up-market self-catering holiday let.
The generously-proportioned dining/relaxation area offers a cool respite from the hot Andalusian summers with comfortable sofas, hardwood furniture and inspired artistic touches.
The principal bedroom has a kingsize bed (which can easily be separated to form 2 singles) and it opens out onto the terrace through huge teak French doors and its over-sized en-suite wet room is partially tiled with small turquoise glass tiles (‘grasite’). There is a wide shower-head, sturdy handrails and a flip down seat…ideal for disabled clients.
In the second double bedroom (as in the principal one) the beds can easily be parted to provide two singles if required and, again, there is plenty of wardrobe space.
The second bathroom (next door to the second bedroom) serves the whole casita. The extra-wide bath has a shower attachment and is fully tiled.
There is also a double sofa bed in the sitting-room if needed together with a generous flat screen TV monitor, DVD player and free-to-air British TV channels.
Set in 8 acres of private arable land, Finca Retama Farmstead is abundant with apple, pear, quince, plum, peach, fig, and walnut trees. Please help yourself when in season.
On the south and east sides of the rental villa is a perfect alfresco dining terrace where a large and solid BBQ set is provided under the spacious and willow-shaded terrace which itself abuts the magnificent fully-fenced and landscaped 15x6 metre swimming pool. A hedge of mature pink roses provides privacy along the length of the terrace. There is natural slate underfoot and ornamental trees and hanging baskets compliment the ambiance.
The exceptionally large 15m pool is fully fenced, landscaped and private to the whole estate and is shared. Both luxury self-catering vacation rentals are tastefully decorated to a Moorish theme with plenty of Berber rugs, high quality hardwood furniture and fittings. Casa Abuela has been especially designed for wheelchair access.
This unique and spacious letting is very comfortable, has all the mod-cons (including central heating) and is available all year around.
Although the Farmstead is nestled in a bucolic valley in the countryside it is only a ten minute drive from the fabulous town of Ronda and the charming white Andalusian villages scattered all around. With three Natural Parks on their doorstep, our rentals make an ideal base for a wide variety of activities including horse-riding, nature walking, rock climbing, mountain – biking, bird watching, caving…and much more besides. In fact you could not choose a more central location from which to enjoy sightseeing in the famous Andalucian cities of Cordoba, Granada, Seville, Jerez, Cadiz and Malaga. Also, not too far away, are the coastal resorts of the Costa del Sol and the unspoilt sandy beaches of the Costa de la Luz.
