Stunning Location with Panoramic Views and Private Pool and Free Wi-Fi

Overview

Property

Updated: 13-Aug-2016
2 Bedroomed Farmhouse with separate Casita. Tranquil Rural Setting

Finca Alta Vista is a two-bedroomed farmhouse updated and renovated with all modern facilities. 50 metres away from the main house is a further one-bedroomed Casita which offers the possibility of sleeping 6 people in total. They are never let separately so you will never be sharing the pool. The property is set high on 4 acres of hillside overlooking an unspoilt valley with uninterrupted, breathtaking views south and west to the distant hills. The house has been renovated to a very high standard. There is 35sq.m of terracing: a shaded terrace along the front of the building with lights for evening dining or reading and a BBQ terrace at the side. Steps lead to a 8m x 4m private pool. All terraces have good quality teak furniture. The skyscapes and sunsets, the changing light and shadows on the rolling hillsides, and the sound of bells tinkling as the goats pass through the valley provide a tranquil and captivating background as you relax on the terraces, or in the pool. Keep an eye out for eagles circling above. After watching the sun set behind the distant hills, stargaze under the vast open sky and consider the many ways you too can enjoy the Andalucian experience tomorrow.
