Charming farmhouse situated on the private working estate La Almuña. Nestled in the hills between the picturesque ´white villages´of Jimena de la Frontera and Gaucin. The farmhouse offers newly refurbished comfortable, light and airy accommodation for up to 16 people. An ideal family house. Spectacular views are had from house and terrace across the straits of Gibraltar to North Africa. The rooms brim with traditional cortijo character.

The beamed high-ceilinged sitting room with its huge hearth offers relaxation at the end of the day. Read one of the many books or relax with a film. The rooms are arranged off the central cobbled courtyard which brims with citrus trees, roses and hibiscus. The spacious farmhouse stone terrace offers ample seating in sun or shade.

Great beaches are only 40 min. away on the Mediterranean Coast or the wild white surfing sands of Costa de la Luz are,90 min. drive. Wonderful caves to explore locally and fiestas and ferias to enjoy. Try the local wines at a Gaucin Bodega or travel to Jerez for its famous Sherry bodegas and Spanish horses. A wonderful base to explore the Moorish hilltop villages or enjoy the glitz and glamour of Marbella. Take in some polo in Sotogrande and some golf at Valderrama or just sit back and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of La Almuña.

Spacious, relaxing with terrific views!

  • 4 of 5

We spent just over a week at this lovely house as a last minute booking! We were not disappointed.....our welcome from Diana was warm and generous as she greeted us with homemade Gazpacho and vegetables from the local farm.

The house was spacious and peaceful with tremendous views over the surrounding countryside. We all absolutely loved the pool with a view, a wonderful place to cool down and relax.

Thank you Diana for making our stay so special.

Fantastic & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed with Diana at La Almuna for a week. The house, grounds, pool, gardens and view are beautiful and well kept. Diana's hospitality is unrivalled within half an hour somehow you have a large G&T in your hand and are taking in the view from the terrace while a delicious dinner is being prepared for you. The house is utterly charming in a rustic farmhouse style with every room full of character. We had a toddler with us and the pool and surrounding area are very safe for children. We will definitely be back next year - loved every second of this place!
