About the villa
Terraced into the hillside and surrounded by the glorious greenery of the National park, this is a rambling and charming, rural hideaway. With accommodation split across three floors, each level leads out to lovely terraces for al fresco living, while the cool interiors are a well-balanced blend of rustic appeal and contemporary facilities. Exposed beams and terracotta tiled floors add a sense of tradition, while Wifi, satellite TV and a very smart kitchen are reassuring reminders that, though this has all the appeal of the ‘real Spain’, it has all the comforts of the real world.A mosaic-tiled swimming pool seems hewn from the rocks in the terraced gardens, reached via a series of stone steps from the house above. While visually very attractive, it is a layout which is suitable only for fully able guests and not really for children. Shops in Jimena de la Frontera are five hundred metres from the villa, and there are glorious walks and riverbank picnic spots in the national park. Horse-riding is available 2km away.
Villa accessed via approximately 40 steps from road level, not suitable for those with limited mobility.
There are some unprotected drops around the swimming pool - young children need to be supervised.
