Classic Spanish country style
This exclusive villa with private grounds of green countryside is on the quiet road between Gaucín and Colmenar.
At a glance: bedrooms: 5, sleeping: 4 to 10 || Distance: 7 km from town
Spacious and elegant
The villa is built along the lines of a hacienda, a traditional Spanish, country-manor house.
Sleeping ten guests in five double bedrooms, this house is suitable for a large family or a group of friends who want to chill out in luxury in the privacy of their own country house.
The villa is set in its own grounds in beautiful green countryside, off the quiet country road between Gaucín and Colmenar. Although the villa is easy to get to, this area is off the usual tourist trail, but once discovered you’ll want to keep coming back.
After passing through the electric security gates, along a concrete drive, you enter into a cobbled courtyard and, as is expected of an Andalucían country house, it has a tall palm tree – no respectable estate house would be complete without it. Traditional touches have been included to continue the theme of old Spanish heritage: the water feature for horses to drink from and the antique-style bread oven in the corner of the courtyard.
The impressive entrance hall is a reflection of the whole house: classic yet tasteful and full of light.
Luxurious bedroom suites
All the bedrooms are gorgeous. Some have views to the mountains, others look out onto the palm tree court yard or the orange tree patio.
There is plenty of space for everyone. Three of the five bedrooms are on the ground floor (one double and two twin). Two bedrooms (one double, one twin) are on the first floor.
All the bedrooms except one have their own en suite facilities which consist of large walk-in showers (one twin bedded room has a full bath tub with mixer shower over, instead), WC and bidet.
The bedroom without the en suite is compensated by having a balcony terrace with views to the swimming pool. On the same floor is a luxurious bathroom with twin basins, a full-sized, marble-surround bath and a big, circular walk-in shower.
As well as bedrooms on the first floor, there is a study area on the mezzanine gallery which overlooks the living room below. The living room is an impressive space, enhanced by its high, pitched ceiling of natural wood.
Relax in style
With a gym, sauna and a fantastic swimming pool - it's a holiday in your own private spa.
With a large group holidaying together you’ll need space to cook and eat together. The house is designed to accommodate ten guests comfortably and that includes having a large kitchen and dining room, as well as areas for privacy and quiet times.
The dining room has an open fireplace and a table which seats ten with views to the pool through large, French windows and direct access to the veranda.
The kitchen has top-of-the-range appliances and equipment, marble worktops with an island-style food preparation area and plenty of room. There is a walk-in larder and a laundry area with washing machine and tumble dryer. Close by is a cloakroom with WC and hand basin.
For relaxing indoors, you can choose the TV salon or the large, open living room. Both are furnished in a classic style, tasteful and smart. The whole house is decorated in a neutral palette, soft beiges and pastels, which complement the natural stone floors.
The TV den is to the right of the entrance hall and has a wood-burner, TV and three sofas. It’s an intimate and cosy room, perfect for taking time out with a book or a film. The main living room is spacious and airy with leather sofas arranged around an open fireplace with a glass fronted wood-burner and TV. This living room opens out to a shaded, furnished terrace which has direct access to the lawn and views to the swimming pool.
And what a swimming pool! Set in a soft lawn, the good sized pool (12 m x 4m ) has wonderful countryside views and is shaded at one end by a Mediterranean oak tree. The pool has the benefit of underwater night lighting and is solar heated. For further luxury, the villa even has its own gym and sauna.

Previous guest (June)
Gracias por una estancia estupenda. La casa es magnífica y muy bien diseñada, con mucho gusto. Las vistas son inmejorables y la terraza el mejor sitio donde disfrutarlas. Los niños han disfrutado como locos, haciendo ginkanas, jugando a ser Indiana Jones o algún héroe similar y los mayores se sentaban a relajarse con un G&T mientras entraban y salían de la piscina. Muchas gracias y hasta siempre.
Unas vacaciones increibles. Muchas gracias por la casa, preciosa. We will be back! Thank you we have had a wonderful time in your beautiful house!
