Property description

Down a winding country track, past the gate keeper's 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.

You enter the finca through impressive, antique, double doors into a spacious L shaped split level entrance hall leading you into the Salon.

This beamed, dual aspected room with its high ceiling is delightful in summer with doors opening onto the dining terrace and cozy in winter with its large wood burning fire. A few steps lead from the seating area to the elevated dining table and into the country style kitchen which boasts all the modern appliances together with a La Canche range and separate larder space.

From the kitchen a door leads to a large utility area containing laundry, ironing room, boot room, two wine stores, small office and storage area.

Just off the dining area is the separate Library with inbuilt TV providing a delightful cozy space to read or watch TV.

All four bedrooms have bathrooms en-suite. All guest bedrooms are of good size and charmingly decorated. All have access to outside balconies or terraces.

The master bedroom is a delightfully large airy space with beamed apex ceiling. The log fire creating a romantic, cozy space on cool nights. The separate dressing room features antique courtyard doors cleverly concealing the fitted wardrobe space. The en-suite bathroom provides country style luxury with the large shower, double basins, generous bath and hand made tiles.

Leading off the entrance hall the finca has a real • WOW Factor • with Its own INDOOR SPA comprising a 13m x 3m heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, sound system and shower. So whatever the weather you can enjoy a refreshing swim, a relaxing jacuzzi or a soothing sauna.

Beyond the large outside dining terrace with fabulous glass pyramid ceiling, to the charming poolside bar with log burner, to the swimming pool wrapping itself around the delightful mirador and the incredible panoramic views, Finca de Palmero delivers the perfect space for relaxing or entertaining.

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.

Welcome to the Real Spain. Nestling 2,000 feet above sea level is the charming, whitewashed village of Gaucín.

The village, with its narrow medieval streets and narrow alleyways, lined by tall terraced houses overlooking the Genal valley and sheltered by the Sierra del Hacho mountain (Axe Mountain), is the jewell in the Pueblo Blanco's (white villages) crown. Gaucín is the gateway to the Serrania de Ronda.

The views are spectacular, reaching down to the coast and beyond to the Riff Mountains of Morocco. Many of the visitors who come to Gaucín return and many buy homes in and around the village to enjoy the Spanish country charm.

Besides providing the country pursuits of bird watching, walking, cycling and horse riding, Gaucín is but 45 minutes away from sandy beaches & numerous golf courses.  From a day trip to Morocco to skiing in the Sierra Nevada Gaucín has something to offer everyone.

From Gaucin you can visit Ronda, Saville, Marbella, Málaga, Jerez and Gibraltar or the white villages lining the road to Ronda.

For wine lovers go to Ronda - there are several good wine growers there and yes, Gaucin boasts an excellent "bodega". Owned by Rickard Enkvist the fruits of Rickard`s labours have materialized into the production of Sueños, (Dreams) the aptly named award-winning red wine grown and cultivated in the breathtaking setting of the hilltops of Gaucin. From Finca de Palmero ithe bodega is a 5 minute drive away.

The village itself has everything you may need, banks (with ATMs), a supermarket, 2 children's play grounds, a bodega (wine shop), restaurants, tapas bars, a petrol station and medical centre.  Málaga airport is less than 90 minutes away.  Gibraltar airport is about 45 minutes drive.

Finca de Palmero is an oasis of peace & calm sitting in 24 acres of ancient oaks, carobs & olives just 7 km from the village. It's a great place to chill out.
