Located on a headland above a charming and unspoiled traditional seaside village, this lovely modern villa with three bedrooms and three full sized bathrooms faces due south, and is situated in a 400 sq. metre (4000 sq. feet) private walled garden stocked with native flowering plants and lush palm trees. The villa (160 sq.metres or 1600 sq. ft.) is spacious and bright throughout, and the overall feeling is conducive to complete relaxation in a peaceful environment.
Offering stunningly beautiful walks along cliff-top coastal paths within a few hundred metres of the front door of the villa, this is the perfect place to relax or to explore beautiful coastline. The village and beach of La Herradura, where there are many good quality restaurants and bars open all year round dotted along the seafront and beach, can be reached via a 15-20 minute walk downhill via a shortcut avoiding most of the beach road. The route offers superb views of the coastline on the way. Don't forget your camera! The walk back is steep of course but, if required, taxis are readily available in the village and are inexpensive. A delightful marina offering a range of water-based activities and restaurants is within a 5 minute drive of the villa on the opposite side of the headland from the village.
The entrance to the first floor of the villa is via a gate with personal intercom and down a few steps. There is a wide parking area adjacent to the front gate. The entrance hall leads to the spacious lounge/dining room, large fully fitted kitchen, guest toilet, and stairs to the ground floor. The lounge area seats 8 with 2 x 3-seater sofas and a 2-seater sofa. A wood burning open fire provides warmth for guests in winter and air conditioning cools summer guests. A hi-fi is provided (please bring your favourite CDs) as is a DVD player and the satellite TV has English free to view programs. Patio doors lead from the lounge to the terrace, via an alcove which houses a large writing desk, ideal for letter writing or laptop users (ADSL pay-as-you-go wi-fi connection available). There are beautiful sea views from the south facing windows in the dining area. Further patio doors lead from the dining area to the south and west facing spacious upper terrace, overlooking the pool and the sea. In the large fully fitted kitchen, extensive oak units conceal a fridge, separate freezer, washing machine and dish washer. Electric oven and hob, coffee machine and toaster are provided, along with necessary utensils, crockery, cutlery and glassware. The triple aspect windows face south, west and north. A door leads directly from the kitchen to the lounge/dining area.
Downstairs, a hallway leads to the lower terrace, 3 bedrooms, and separate bathroom. The principal bedroom, with bathroom en suite, fitted wardrobes, double bed, chest of drawers, bedside tables and ceiling fan, faces South, with views to the sea. The second bedroom, also south facing, with bathroom en suite, fitted wardrobe, double bed, bedside tables and ceiling fan, has the added advantage of its own patio doors to the lower terrace and pool. Ideal for early morning swimmers! The third bedroom faces east, has fitted wardrobes, 2 single beds, chest of drawers, bedside table and ceiling fan, with use of the separate bathroom. All three full-sized bathrooms have a bath with shower and curtain, a hand basin, WC and bidet. A table and chairs, for 6, are provided on the sunny south and west facing upper terrace. A small portable barbecue set is also provided. A further table, comfortable three-seat sofa and chairs are on the south and west facing lower terrace - an ideal spot for reading, or for relaxing in the shade. Both terraces overlook the pool, and have sea views. NEW FOR 2018: A new south facing "sun deck" with quality outdoor furniture expands the terrace space and offers day long sunbathing opportunities. The adjacent irregular shaped private pool (approx. 6.5 by 3.5 metres and unheated) has no deep end and is thus ideal for non-swimmers, being around 1 metre 25 cms deep. It is reached down a few steps via the garden from the lower terrace. Around the pool is a large paved sunbathing area, with six sun beds and a sun shade, and an unusual and attractive outside shower.
The lovely garden area provides a shady setting close to the pool for rest and relaxation. The palm trees, flowering shrubs and exotic bird of paradise plants make it an especially colourful part of the villa. A path leads right around the house. The palm trees and shrubs in the garden are automatically watered by an irrigation system, and the pool is regularly cleaned.
Air conditioning is fitted to all three bedrooms and the living room.
