About the property

Cottage with swimming pool and tennis court - sleeps up to 4 people

The cottage sleeps 4 in this magical setting with exclusive use of the pool area. .

The grounds are set in 8 hectares in the highly protected Natural Park giving privacy and peace. There are outstanding unspoilt views of the sierras and river valley which is Andalucia's only remaining virgin river.

The cottage is open plan with high vaulted ceilings and is modern and light. There are 2 terraces, one of which is covered with comfortable seating and a dining area. There is a master bedroom with a seperate bathroom. The living area is open plan that has a mezzanine bedroom that is again open plan. The open plan living area has a fully fitted kitchen and dining area as well as a comfortable seating area and with a high ceiling gives a wonderful sense of space. There is WiFi throughout the cottage as well as SKy TV, DVD and a sound system

The swimming pool and tennis court area is an ideal place to relax on the sun loungers or hammocks or play badminton or table tennis. There is seating for 12 for dining and a BBQ. Fridges are on hand for drinks as well as a small kitchen for the BBQ. There is WiFi at the pool as well. At night the pool can can be lit up as well as the romantic fairy lights in the trees that surround the area.

All sports equipment is provided as well as beach towells. The pool is 11 x 6 metres and the tennis court is grass with a few unpredictable bounces!!

Around the Finca there are amazing views of the Sierras and the breathtaking sunsets that sillouette the olive trees perched high up on the sierras. At night it is a stargazers paradise and with little light pollution the milky way lights the sky. The Finca is set in the Natural Park of Los Alcornocales (The Cork Forest) and has areas of woodland with wild olives and towering cork trees that are from the oak tree family. There is a gate that leads to the river where there are walks from gentle strolls to exploring the breathtaking scenery. 100 metres from the house are great bathing areas in the river pools with views of Jimena's Moorish Caslte. In May and June the river is a garden of Pink Oleanda and these months have fantastic wild flowers that spring up.

You are unlikely not to see the eagles and many different birds that frequent the Natural Park as well as the many different animals that live along side us in this protected habitat.

The finca is very private but only a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to Jimena that has many restaurants and bars where you can sample the local cuisine of Iberico ham to the fruits of seafood from the Med. There are supermarkets and Banks as well as a medical centre just in case but many of the little shops sell the fruit and vegetables cultivated by the locals in their vegetable gardens.The Andalucian people are incredibly helpful and friendly. There is a festival in May marking the Andalucian history with horses. In July their is a music festival with Flamenco and world music and In Mid August is the main Summer Feria that goes on for 3 days

During your stay there is a member of staff, Jose Luis, that will ensure that the pool and gardens are maintained as well as cleaning the terraces.

Naturally he will be discrete and fit in with your wishes.

About Duncan MacInnesI

Hi, We’re Duncan and Jasmin and we fell in love with Spain and this wonderful property 16 years ago which we lovingly restored over the years and is our principal home. It has all comforts to make your stay really memorable. You will enjoy the privacy and enchanting views and of course the wonderful climate, food and the charismatic people that Spain offers.

Duncan MacInnesI purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Duncan MacInnesI chose Jimena de la Frontera

This was the first and only property that we viewed. From the second we drove through the gate we had found our paradise. There were goats in the ruined Farmhouse and the cottage only had stones where the walls once were.

Daunting though it was we restored the property over 5 years keeping the Andalucian features but modernising the living space for our needs. So why this property for your holiday? You will be enchanted as we still are

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We were really looked after in every way. The house is beautiful and the scenery just takes your breath away and we were really sad to leave and yes we will be back again soon” Allesandro and Lucia Fransisco

“Wow!!! was the first thing all our family said as we drove into the farm. It’s a jewell and so private with everything you dream of for a perfect holiday and the maid just looked after us like family.” John and Amanda Green

“ The house is charming and the vista is quite incredible and the sunsets just enchanting. The children played tennis and ping pong all day when they weren’t swimming. A perfect holiday” The Fairchild Family
