Down a winding country track, past the gate keepers cottage into the 24 acre estate - up the hill and through the electric gates and there lies the finca: a grand retreat beneath the Ronda mountains, with views to the distant Med. Blissfully private, with bags of space, its sprawling, low-lying buildings rise up the hillside in gentle steps: you get a lot of house for your money. Inside is designer smart in creams, taupes and golds, ceilings are lofty and beamed, floors gleam beneath fine rugs, sofas are vast and modern art dots walls and glass-topped tables. Bedrooms have a restrained luxury and a smart rustic style: cool tiles, wrought-iron sconces, shuttered windows.
This is a finca with a real “ WOW Factor ” having its own indoor spa area. Enjoy a swim whatever the weather in our fabulous 13m by 3m heated pool, or have a refreshing jacuzzi or relaxing sauna. The spacious salon leads out to a swimming pool that wraps itself around a Mirador overlooking the bar, which allows you to live the outdoor lifestyle to the full. The terraced dining area makes a cosy yet elegant entertaining space.
All the bedrooms have en-suite generously sized, stylish bathrooms. The finca is packed with features that makes life in the campo as comfortable and relaxing as possible with extras such as a 50 inch satellite TV, Xbox 360 Kinetic, and WiFi internet connection.
Children are very welcome as are babies. We have 2 cots, a child´s size bed, 2 high chairs, a baby bath and sterilizer. If under 12 they must be supervised when swimming because both pools are unfenced. All the bedrooms have fans and mosquito netting on windows. For cooler months there is warm air heating throughout the finca as well as a wood burner in the salon and an open fire in the master bedroom. In the summer there is a cool air system throughout the finca.
Our staff are there on site to help you enjoy yourselves and to make sure everything goes smoothly. Their cottage is separate from the finca and they are very aware that your privacy is important but it is reassuring to know, should you need help, that they are there to assist you.
Masses of space to relax in at this swish, sprawling and very exclusive finca. Enjoy your favourite cocktail at our cosy pool side bar listening to your choice of music. Later, watch the amazing sunsets from the poolside bar. ENJOY this luxury home near the picturesque village of Gaucín. From the indoor Spa to the spacious Mirador, it´s a great place to “ chill out ”.
