About the property

Nr Genalguacil, Costa Del Sol, Spain-Genalguacil, Central For Ronda, Estepona, Marbella, Gibraltar And Many White Villages

The charming woodland villa (2 bedroom 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room and lounge) and adjacent apartment (1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, kitchen, lounge/dining room) Sleeping 6 altogether are sat on a rocky ridge amidst trees of olive and oak. There is good access off the tarmacked road, but a very rural location.

There is ample parking next to the property. The old stone threshing circle makes a perfect private sun terrace with shady pergola with views of the distant wooded mountains, valleys and river. The large infinity pool has sun terrace and shade with tables chairs and loungers again with views of wooded mountains.

Genalguacil is the nearest beautiful white village with bars restaurants and small supermarkets. But mainly renowned for its art gallery and contemporary art adorning the streets, a must for art lovers. . The perfect secluded base for exploring the white villages of the Serrania de Ronda, river valleys, countryside and Costal towns.

Tranquility in a beautiful, accessible location

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, super clean and complete holiday facilities with great care taken in the small details. Ideal surroundings to take a break from it all in a convenient location only 40 minutes from the Costa del Sol, and with a fantastic brand new road linking to the nearest white village. Just 10 drive minutes to Genalguacil and you are in the breathtaking Genal Valley... fresh air, amazing views, long walks, bike rides, mountain hikes, river picnics, local produce, a museum, bars and small shops... it's all there. If you prefer to stay in, you can curl up by the fire, cook on the barbecue, or just sit out on the patio... the pool is large and inviting with a relaxing terrace area... perfect in the warmer weather. Richard and Anne are friendly, helpful and on hand to deal with any queries. Being very experienced in property lets, they really have thought of everything, so all you have to worry about is enjoying your stay.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit, the first being a summer one, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The winter stay has been just as enjoyable. As the weather wasn’t as hot as the first time we were there we decided to do a bit more site seeing, we found that although the property feels very rural it is close to a lot of major towns. As before Anne & Richard were very helpful and we were made to feel welcome.

The property is very well equipped with everything you might need and the open fire was a real treat for a cosy evening in, the perfect place relax and detach yourself from every day stress. Just amazing scenery, fantastic views and pool area was just spectacular.

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

We drove through spectacular scenery to arrive at the beautiful farmhouse and were warmly welcomed by Anne & Richard. The farmhouse was idyllic with every conceivable comfort. We enjoyed catching the winter sun on the pool area in an elevated position with glorious mountain views and relaxing sun terrace. We had some nice walks and explored the white villages and towns in the surrounding area. We are planning to return in the summer.

A wonderful place to relax and chill out

  • 5 of 5

Basically I would totally endorse what Brian P says in his review of September this year. My wife and I had a wonderfully relaxing stay with Anne and Richard. You may only be 40 minutes away from Estepona but you are a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Costas. If you plan to travel around a lot and visit places the location is not ideal, as the drive out to the main road network is tortuous, but for those who just want to chill in a beautiful location, out the property is perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and for sure the mountain roads are not for everybody, although the dramatic scenery is popular with many cyclists, motor cyclists and tourists they are not everyone's cup of tea. Thank you again for your kind review we would be happy to see you again in the future when you just need to chill out and take in the beautiful location.

A little bit of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a retreat - a place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life - this is the place for you. The cottage is set high in the mountains, and the only sounds are the goat bells and bird song. Sit outside in the warmth at night and listen to the owls hooting, as you wait for the moon to rise above the mountain. It's magical. Drive into Estepona for fresh fish, then come back and pick lemons to complement it. Help yourself to an avocado for a nice starter, maybe some grapes for your breakfast. Richard and Anne insist that you help yourself to anything growing in the garden. Can't get any fresher than that! Spend lots of time at the pool, the view of the valley is even more beautiful. Richard and Anne have created a haven of peace and tranquillity for themselves and their guests. They are always on hand to answer any questions and give advice, but are also discreet. They have three gorgeous, friendly dogs who just add to the overall experience. We haven't a single negative comment to make about this cottage. Once again, if you are looking for peace and relaxation, this is the place for you. Highly recommended.

This is a very nice property in a beautiful part of Spain. Anne and Richard live on site and are extremely helpful without being intrusive. If you are looking for a very quiet, relaxing holiday in a beautiful area then this is perfect. It is a rural location and you will need a car. The nearest village, Genalguacil, is lovely and Estepona is a 45 minute drive. It is a mountain route. We can also recommend a 2 bed, 2 bath property Anne and Richard have just finished next to the 1 bed cottage.
