Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 3, Sleeps 6

This beautiful finca is a very private but easily accessible traditional finca (farmhouse) near the beautiful white village of Casares, Western Costa Del Sol. The large newly renovated house has 3 double en-suite bedrooms and sleeps 6 guests. It is set in beautiful countryside, and surrounded by Mediterranean trees, but only 10 minutes from the beach. Spacious and quiet with striking views of the surrounding countryside. The house is completely private, with no near neighbours. Stunning views and large private pool for a very relaxing holiday - you will not want to leave.

The house has a fully equipped kitchen, with German appliances including dishwasher, American fridge-freezer, and electric oven. It has beautiful new bathrooms and bright, airy bedrooms. We supply bedding and towels. Other amenities include freeview TV and wifi, as well as a bluetooth streaming audio system.

In autumn and winter months you can relax next to an open fire in the evening and still enjoy warm sunny weather during the day, and there are electric heaters in all the bedrooms.

The house is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, overlooking green hillsides of mature trees - olives, cork oaks, mediteranean pines, and carob trees. The birdlife is astonishing, with griffon vultures and golden eagles often circling overhead in the afternoons, and many other species can be spotted during migrations between Europe and Africa. There are many local attractions close by, including good beaches, bars and restaurants. Shopping can be found in nearby Estepona and Marbella.

Activities include walking, mountaineering, horse-riding and golfing at the many excellent golf courses along the coast. The nearest golfcourse is the renowned Finca Cortesin, only 10 minutes away. This estate also has several excellent restaurants including one with a michelin star.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent setting. The views are magnificent and the pool is just such a wonderful relief from the heat of the day. I recommend this place for a really tranquil setting to recharge one's batteries.

Beautiful tranquil place. Magic old world charm.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the décor, the big kitchen, the cotton sheets, the pool and the comprehensive facilities. Things we didn't like were the wasps, the steps to the pool and the tiny bathroom in the attic bedroom. However, these are minor gripes. Would definitely return.

A marvelous secluded finca with all the necessary modern refinements

  • 5 of 5

A great location, peace and quiet, yet not too far from bars and restaurants. A lot of time and effort has obviously been spent to ensure that everything you would need for a peaceful break was available. The finca itself was marvellous, plenty of spacious airy rooms. The outside terrace, where we spent most of our time, just soaking up the wonderful view down the valley, was ideal. The only slight down side was the journey down to the pool, which whilst accessible, was somewhat precarious and proved rather difficult for one or two of our party. All in all we had a fabulous stay and will hopefully be back soon.

Just as described, a simple and very beautiful well equipped old house.

  • 4 of 5

A truly lovely, beautifully decorated old house. Simply furnished just as you would want but with super ensuite bathrooms. Far reaching views down the valley, with a turquoise pool lower in the garden.Great Spanish restaurant & bar a short walk away along the nearby road and the pretty white village of Casares to explore a short drive away. Super markets and tourists ten minutes away at the coast but we loved the relaxed feel and rustic simplicity of the house and garden were far more of a draw. Easy to get to and not hidden in the back of beyond but felt as if it was in a world of its own.Delightful.

Rustic Farmhouse, beautiful views and very private.

  • 3 of 5

The farmhouse was well furnished and had plenty of room for us, a party of 4. Outside good view, quiet and private the terrace was great for barbecues and just chilling out. The house was not mentioned to be on quite a slope and the steps leading to the pool were quite hazardous and the pool was on a different level to the house. Also we would of loved to spend more time in the pool but the lights do not work so therefore it would of been pitch black to get to the pool and to be in. Very well situated for Estepona and the coast and very easy for Gibraltar. And definitely bring mosquito spray of some sort!

The house was very clean, linen, towels etc, and very welcome was the loan of beach towels. Television was quite poor only a couple of channels worth watching and internet was slow, also don't go over the allowance of internet as you will be charged. Back to the pool this needed some repairs and the chemicals needed to be maintained as we were there for two weeks and the pool started to go green.

Owner's Response: Thanks for these comments. The rustic nature of the finca is integral to its charm - a tranquil escape from it all. Most of our guests love the views and sense of space, and especially the pool which is indeed at the bottom of the garden, ensuring privacy and country views. The pool is serviced weekly throughout the summer. We have now installed a timer for the pool lights, so it is lit up every night, and have increased the satellite broadband allowance which is as fast as one can get in the campo, with a 20MB download speed; while perfect for browsing and emails, the provider slows it down if used for live streaming.

An Absolute Delight!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderfully relaxing time at this gorgeous farmhouse. Charming decor throughout, really comfortable bed and shower along with a stunning view of beautiful lush green hills. Total peace, only hearing the sound of the many species of birds, plus goats and chickens, which was delightful.

The house is a great size and probably too big for us really (we're only two) but can imagine how lovely it would be for a family or a group of friends - just extremely comfortable. There is also a good sized pool surrounded by lovely gardens.

If you're looking to escape to a little bit of paradise, this is it. The beautiful town of Casares is 10 minutes away by car, and there are quite a few restaurants in the area. We can't wait to go back!

Authentic spanish getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited this villa in mid summer. We were pleasantly surprised by how cool and welcoming it was. The house must be one of the originals of the area with walls up to 3feet thick -a fantastic feature to regulate temperatures. You could easily imagine that you were in a spagetti western film set with the buildings and scenery looking like a cowboy film. Inside it is modern and very clean. The views are amazing. Stargazing is a must. The local town with nice beaches and night life and golf courses is a 10 minute drive down a beautifully winding road. Up the road is the amazing white village of casseres. Really great for families with young and older children.
