About the property

3 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed large house with terraces and private pool. Wi-fi

Casa Annabella has been restored over the last ten years, it is our home from home. We have tried to maintain the character of the Finca and keep it traditional in style. A large house with three good sized bedrooms, two doubles and one twin.

One large double with en suite and twin bedroom and separate bathroom on the first floor leading out onto a large enclosed terrace with under cover seating area. Views across the olive groves.

The second floor has one double bedroom a large kitchen and living room leading out to the upper terrace and out onto the pool area. The pool is walled and surrounded by olive trees.

There are many places to relax around the house and the terraces are large and private. The pool is 1.4 meters deep throughout and has Roman Steps it is surrounded by a large tiled terrace with sunbeds. It is maintained by our local management team.

Take a walk through the olives on one of the many tracks around the hillside. Visit the local village of Fuentes De Cesna and enjoy Tapas or walk down to the old village and enjoy the stunning views of the lake. Please note that there are no views of the lake from the house!

Iznajar is a 20 minute drive away a beautiful white village siiting on the edge of the lake. There is a beach and watersports here with a beach bar and restaurant. Many typical Spanish bars and restaurants if you want to enjoy a day or evening out. A beautiful restored church sits at the top of the hill and there is a really quaint Blue bar next to the churchyard which is a must to visit.

Algarinejo is also a 20 minute drive away, another typical Spanish village where you can enjoy Tapas with every drink! Really friendly people, market day on a Saturday and a well stocked Supermarket.

The house is large and has many seating areas so even with 6 people sharing there is plenty of room.

The mountain roads up to the property are very good and there is a short track which then leads to the house. There is no problem with access. There is plenty of parking space and a carport and the house is not overlooked in any way.

In the months of July and August the large communal pool in the village is the place to be, food is available all day and evening.

There is a beautiful courtyard downstairs which has a covered area overlooking the Olive Groves.

The kitchen is traditional Andalucian style. It has a large calor gas cooker with oven, fridge freezer, toaster and is equipped for six.

The living room has comfortable sofas a dining table and TV with DVD player. The WiFi is unlimited.

About Andy & Anne Cousins

We live in Brixham, Devon, UK.

Andy & Anne Cousins purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Andy & Anne Cousins chose Granada Province (Costa Tropical)

We wanted a place to get away from it all and this house does exactly that! Although there are plenty of places to visit around and about we nearly always stay around the house and enjoy the peace and quiet.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love the "Real Spain" feel. The local villages are friendly and you still get free tapas with every drink!

Secluded, beautiful olive groves, lovely pool, bit of tlc on interior needed

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful location if you're looking for secluded and authentic Spain.

Unfortunately the bedrooms and bathrooms were very basic and tatty looking

The interior doors downstairs were difficult to use as they constantly got stuck on the floors.the bedlinen and pillows had seen better days.

The sitting room and kitchen are lovely. As is the outside of the Finca and the pool, kept beautifully.

Unfortunately this is a valley and working area for the Olive grove owner who has dogs that broke the peace with their continued barking 4-5 times per day and night.if you have dogs you won't be bothered but through the otherwise silent air this began to grate on me and feel it only fair to warn people of.

The area is fantastic the views across the Olive Groves are stunning which we enjoyed daily though you cannot view the lake from the property as it's a 15 minute drive away.

With a creative mind and more focus on the guests experience rather than a home from home outlook I feel this would be a fabulous retreat and place to stay and recommend to others with 5 stars.

A very attractive old farm house in rural Spain with pool and peace and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

This is a very attractive house in rural Spain about an hour from Malaga inland and an hour and twenty minutes from Granada. After a lot of searching we were pleased to find this house for a quiet week with our 3 teenage kids to relax by a pool with some great views. This house did not disappoint. It was actually more attractive than the photos if that's possible. There's several patio spaces to have a quiet drink or read or take in the view. The teenagers made plenty of use of the wifi and the pool area. I thought this house good value for money and would certainly consider booking again for a week.

Wonderful place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic secluded location nestled in the Olive groves. Very well maintained outside areas and beautiful pool. The house is well equipped with a friendly feel. Good internet reception to keep the teenagers happy. Plenty to see in the local area. We visited all the local towns, but particularly enjoyed visiting Montefrio, Priego de Córdoba and Alvear bodega in Montilla.

Tranquil retreat amongst the olive groves

  • 5 of 5

This lived up to its description for being quiet and comfortable. Near to a typically small, Spanish village we were able to experience their way of life even to down sometimes collecting the water from the local fountains although this isn't necessary as there is mains water. From here the views of the lakes were fantastic. The local countryside is stunning and the villages very pretty and interesting. The villa had a lovely private courtyard ideal for sun worshippers and the pool was a good size and offered a great deal of privacy. A holiday in real Spain.

Home from Home Comforts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this finca in the countryside and found it delightful, a perfect way to chill out. The local villages are a short drive away so a car is a must. Everyone is so friendly and there are many beautiful spots to visit in the area.

Andalucia is the home of Tapas so each time you buy a drink in a bar, you are presented with a free tapas.

Plenty of opportunities to take peaceful walks in the countryside and look out for wildlife. We have spotted eagles, kites and many other birds of prey.

A dip in the private pool at midnight is an ideal time to stargaze as you don’t experience the light pollution as you would in the towns.

On the whole, a thoroughly enjoyable stay and one we shall repeat.

Casa Annabella is a rural Finca ideal for a get away from it all holiday. The village of Fuentes de Cesna is a 10 minute drive away, this is a typical Spanish village with several bars, a bakery and grocery shops. The small towns of Algarinejo and Iznajar are a 20 minute drive away, here there are banks with cash machines, many bars and restaurants and shops and a small supermarket. There are many places to visit within a 50 km radius. Granada with its beautiful Alhambra Palace is an hour or so drive. Surrounded by beautiful countryside Casa Annabella is the perfect base for exploring real Andalucia. Visit Ronda, Antequera, Cordoba, Monte Frio, Priego de Cordoba to name just a few or relax and unwind around the fabulous pool amongst the olives.

When the sun goes down relax with a glass of wine and watch the stars and the fabulous Milky Way!

The Finca is set amongst the olives and is quiet but not miles from anywhere. The local village and small towns are easily accessible. The mountain roads are well maintained and easy to drive on. There are local markets weekly where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruit and the towns of Archidona and Rute have large supermarkets if you want to stock up for your time at the house. Many of the local towns and villages have Fiestas during the year.

The village of Fuentes De Cesna has a pool complex with bar and changing facilities which is open July and August, you can stay for the day and enjoy drinks and tapas at very reasonable prices. the people are really friendly.

The house is situated amongst the olive groves and there are several working farms around so you may see the occasional tractor trundling by or the farmers pruning and tending to the Olive trees.
