Perched on a private hilltop locally known as “The Hunting Ridge”, The Hunting Lodge overlooks the Mediterranean and the Sierra Tejada Reserve in Andalusia. Surrounded by 10 acres of olive groves, vineyards, almond trees, Mediterranean gardens, exotic plantings, and fruit and vegetable gardens, The Hunting Lodge is walled for privacy yet near enough to its sister property, Cortijo El Carligto to allow hosting together of 14 guests. The Hunting Lodge is family friendly and hosts up to six guests when rented individually.
Outdoor living and dining opportunities are numerous; providing panoramic views and garden surroundings. The entrance courtyard opens onto an outdoor kitchen and dining terrace with a Gaudi-inspired fireplace, barbeque and built in bread oven. A courtyard at the rear of the villa provides for shaded outdoor living and leads to the ample pool decking and heated, gated pool. A further covered terrace sits a bit higher, offering Mediterranean views, while overlooking the meditation garden beyond it.
Recently renovated in 2014, interiors are eclectic, featuring art-deco and modern touches as well as displays of local art. The airy open plan living space flows to the gourmet kitchen and indoor Mediterranean view dining area. This spacious living space also hosts a fireplace, an entertainment system and a cocktail bar. The Hunting Lodge is fully air conditioned, boasts under-floor heating and is ecologically conscious.
The Hunting Lodge hosts three en-suite bedrooms. The master bathroom boasts a walk-in shower and bathtub, and this bedroom opens to yet another private covered terrace!
The Hunting Lodge offers a taste of the “true” Andalusia as well as panoramic views of the countryside, the Mediterranean coast, and the Sierra Tejada mountains; all in a family friendly and private villa. The villa is only 25 kilometers from the famed Costa del Sol and within an hour of the markets of Malaga and the history of Granada. Spanish culinary experiences are easily arranged as are guided tours and treks. The English speaking concierge is well-versed in the details and particulars of local festivals and events. For larger groups or special events, the nearby, yet private, Cortijo El Carligto may be rented together with Hunting Lodge; together hosting up to 14 guests.
