Property description

El Cobijo:

El Cobijo is a beautiful modern villa built in traditional Andalusian style around a charming open patio on a lightly sloping olive grove of approximately 3 acres. The villa’s main level has an open patio, around which one has access to the living room with fireplace, a terrace with beautiful views of the sierra and Ronda, the dining room, a fully equipped chef's kitchen, a powder room, and a guest room with bathroom. A hall way on an intermediate level provides access to two additional bedrooms each with bathroom. The bright, master bedroom is located upstairs with a large bathroom and private roof terrace with gorgeous views. An additional bedroom which doubles as the TV and game room with sitting area and a bathroom is on the villa's lower level. There's also a utility room for 2 washers, 2 dryers, and additional refrigerator. The swimming pool is surrounded by a large sun terrace with a shower house and a roofed, poolside bar with BBQ.

Visiting Ronda:

Ronda is a beautiful, historic Andalusian city. It is a perfect destination to stroll through the narrow streets of its ancient historic city center with its centuries old, iconic bridge over a 100 m deep gorge that divides the old and the newer parts of the city and with the famous, and also oldest bull fighting arena in Spain. Ronda is located in midst of the scenic Serranía of Ronda dotted by the picturesque, white Andalusian villages such as Gaucín, Grazalema, and Zahara, an ideal region for sight seeing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and sail gliding.

Golfing and general tourist attractions:

The property is surrounded by over 30 of Spain's finest golf courses on the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz many of which are reachable in less than 50 minutes by car. Some of Europe's most important cultural cities such as Córdoba, Granada, and Sevilla can easily be reached for enjoyable and extraordinary sight seeing excursions. These cities offer historic sights of incomparable beauty as well as an opportunity to meander through charming, narrow streets, and visit fine Andalusian shops, tapas bars and restaurants. In addition, one can drive through Spain's unique Sherry wine regions of Jeréz and Sanlúcar, visiting such famous Sherry bodegas as Domecq, Gonzalez Byass, Lustau, Hidalgo and many others. While there, visit the famous Domecq Horse Show. Not far away is one of Europe's most intriguing bird sanctuaries, The Doñana National Park, a protected reserve and a popular attraction for nature lovers. A day trip to Tangiers, Morocco with a visit to the fascinating and colorful local souks is only a few hours away by taking the high speed ferry from Tarifa.

If you don't plan on spending too much time traveling by car, you can choose among many local, charming destinations such as the magnificent, nearby village of Setenil de las Bodegas with its breath taking gorge in and around which this Andalusian village was built or the Roman ruin of Acinipo with a well preserved amphitheater and stunning views of the region. Or you can take the scenic mountain road towards Algeciras to the lovely village of Gaucín, one of the most attractive gems among Andalucía's White Villages.

Other recreational activities:

The beaches of Costa del Sol are situated along one of Europe's most formidable summer resorts including Marbella, Puerto Banús, Estepona, and Sotogrande on the Mediterranean Sea. On the Atlantic side, the endless, white sand beaches frequently have steady winds making this area ideal for wind and kite surfing. One of our favorite beaches on this side is Bolonia, where you can also visit its well preserved Roman ruins Baelo Claudia.

If you love horses, we can help you plan a morning ride through the area's beautiful scenery. If you plan to travel in early spring, consider the highest snow peaks of the Iberian Peninsula located in the Sierra Nevada, very close to Granada, with some of Spain's best ski slopes. Although at least 2 and a half hours away by car, you can still plan on arriving at the slopes before noon and returning home for dinner. Sierra Nevada has over 90 km of well maintained, tree-less ski runs, some of which provide breath taking views of the Mediterranean Sea.

The owner may from time to time be in residence in a separate part of the villa with separate entrance. However, the gardens, pool and terraces are exclusive for the use of guests. The owner will be discrete at all times and will personally ensure the house and all services are run to a high standard.

Why the Owner Chose Arriate, Málaga, Spain:
We built the villa in the midst of a charming olive grove in 2001. The peace and quiet, the rural environment, the views, the friendly people, the excellent food, the central location to visit major cultural centers and endless beaches, etc. all of these and more made us look no further for a perfect location.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Daily cleaning service is provided; the maid comes Monday through Friday for 2 hours from 11:00 to 13:00 hrs. The maid can be asked to stay for additional hours, if necessary at €9 per hour, payable directly to the maid. The maid does not work on weekends or legal holidays. Our holiday guests are cordially invited to a welcome snack with ice cold cava upon arrival. If you wish to have a private chef cook one or several meals during your stay, this can be arranged in advance at a very reasonable price. Please contact us about this additional service. All linen and towels are provided. Towels are changed bi-weekly, bed linen once per week. As an additional service, we can stock up your pantry on your behalf prior to your arrival if necessary.
