Costa del Sol - Malaga villa description

Finca Las Nueces has been restored from its ruined state five years ago and offers real comfort in a stunning location in traditional Andalucia by the banks of the Rio Genal where otters, kingfishers and African bee-eater birds are seen.

With a private pool and contemporary kitchen, bathrooms and living areas, this villa offers a taste of real Spain, peace and tranquility plus stunning views of Sierra Crestellina and Serrania de Ronda. But is only a short drive to the Costa del Sol, it's Blue Flag beaches, shops, supermarkets and restaurants, plus all the facilities and buzz of Mediterranean Spain.

Even with its hideaway location the villa is in easy reach of all facilities and sights of this special part of Andalucia, the Mediterranean coast, and two international airports Malaga and Gibraltar.

It takes about 12 minutes to reach the village of Gaucin with its shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. The Costa del Sol is within easy driving distance, as are Sotogrande, Marbella and Gibraltar. Seville, Ronda, Jerez, Granada and Tarifa (a surfer's paradise) and stunning villages (Pueblos Blancos) make fantastic day trips, and Morocco is a short ferry crossing from Algeciras or Tarifa

When we bought Las Nueces in 2005 it was a dilapidated ruin used by a local shepherd for his flock of sheep. Now you'll find a gracious Spanish house (cortijo) renovated in a simple contemporary style with all modern facilities, a fully fitted kitchen, private pool with mountain and riverside views where you can just lie back, stretch out, relax and drink in the beautiful scenery.

One kilometre off the main road to Gaucin along a rural track, Las Nueces is a tranquil oasis – one guest described it as ‘Zen like’. At night with the moon rising over the mountains, the sky and stars are amazing – no light pollution here. If you enjoy star gazing bring a pair of binoculars.

With three large bedrooms, all en-suite, it comfortably accommodates up to six guests. Free WIFI broadband and free-to-view UK satellite TV are included.

Finca Las Nueces provides a relaxed home from home atmosphere with a large modern fully equipped kitchen and a wonderful double height entrance hall leading to a large galleried vaulted living room which comfortably seats 10.

Las Nueces has been designed with comfort and easy living in mind. The neutral decoration with cream ceramic tiles throughout is combined with traditional Spanish features to provide a ‘laid back’ relaxing style. In keeping with the owner’s taste the house is beautifully furnished in a minimalist style echoing the simplicity of the Andalucian pueblo blanco (white village) architecture.

On arrival there’s plenty of parking space. You enter the house through the traditional handmade Andalucian double front door into the vaulted entrance hall with living and dining areas leading off. All ground floor rooms have access to the south facing and pool terraces – and of course those wonderful riverside and mountain views.

The double-height living room is furnished with comfortable white sofas and chairs seating 10 with side and coffee tables and UK free to view satellite TV.

To the left of the entrance hall is the dining area. This has a fireplace, two Colonial-style easy chairs, a drinks table and a large teak dining table with six comfortable rattan dining chairs, and access to the south-facing sun terraces overlooking the garden and pool.

Leading from the dining area is the modern well equipped kitchen with granite worktops and teak cabinets, a gas hob and a double-width electric oven. There’s a fridge freezer, double sink, dishwasher and utility area with washing machine, iron and ironing board. All the other usual kitchen equipment and appliances are available plus of course glasses, cutlery and crockery.There is also a guest cloakroom with a shower, WC and hand basin which leads directly to the pool terrace.

Upstairs there are three large en-suite bedrooms all with fabulous views.

The master bedroom is at the end of a nine-metre gallery overlooking the living room and has a king-size double bed, built in wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom with full size bath, double basins, large shower and WC, plus great views of Sierra Crestellina and Bermeja.

Guest bedroom two has a double bed, built in wardrobes, and the bathroom has a full size bath with overhead shower, hand basin and WC.

Guest bedroom three has twin beds, built in wardrobes and en-suite shower, hand basin and WC.

Las Nueces is surrounded by three acres of landscaped terraced and wild natural garden leading to the Genal river where you can swim in one of Andalucia’s cleanest rivers.

The south facing terraces on three levels have those wonderful views plus comfortable rattan easy chairs, large drinks table – and help yourselves to the seasonable fruit, tomatoes and herbs if available. Why not?

The pool terrace faces south and east and is furnished with sun loungers and charcoal BBQ. The sparkling blue pool is approximately 12x8m and slopes to about 1.80m at the deep end. Pool cleaning is included.
