Description from owner


This is a truly lovely house, very Spanish and full of charm and character. We have refurbished it with style and filled it with lovely furniture, some modern and some antique, with Moroccan and Spanish influences.

The house sits in half an acre of cyprus, olive and almond trees stretching across three terraces. On the lower terrace, partly secluded by trees and shrubs, is the 9m (30ft) swimming pool with spacious stone terrace, perfect for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade. There are sun loungers and umbrellas but for most of the day there is shade in one perfect spot, under the old olive tree.

We have created beautiful gardens which lead to the house and down to the pool, from the formal entrance garden to the stone path with pretty fountain, you will be surrounded by flowers and shrubs. The trees are mature and give much needed shade, but the oleanders, lilies and lantana lift everything with brilliant colours.

The large, bright living room leads straight onto the pool terrace through the french windows. There's a comfortable sofa and chairs so you can relax and watch the kiddies playing by the pool. At the other end, by the kitchen, there's a dining table (seats 8) from here into the family kitchen, well equipped for a large group with plenty of room to cook in comfort.

POOL: the 9m (30 ft) pool is very private and surrounded by large terrace with green shrubs and trees. The whole pool area is south facing and gets loads of sun, it's always a big hit with guests who often hurry back from trips to relax here until dusk. There are sun loungers, plus table and umbrella, with a shady area under the generous olive tree.

THREE BEDROOMS: There are two large L-shaped bedroom suites, both with a curtained area for privacy, both with ensuite bathrooms. Bedroom Suite 1 leads off the living room and also into the sun lounge, it's bright and airy. Bedroom Suite 2 features french windows leading into the private back garden, this is at the back of the house and has two patios for relaxing in the sun or shade. Both bedroom suites have room for a couple and two children, there's also a cot for baby (optional). Bedroom 3 is a double, it's next to the house bathroom, and there's a sofa bed in the large sun lounge also overlooking the pool (with large windows and blinds for privacy). The house sleeps 7 or 8 adults with some sharing but can also accommodate 3 or 4 young children sharing with Mum and Dad or grandparents.

GARDENS: There are several garden areas starting with the entrance gravel garden with paths and fountain, the pool is surrounded by gardens and finally there's a large very private back garden accessed from the pool and also via french windows in bedroom suite 2.

A beautiful old, country house with lots of room to move. With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, plus a large sun lounge with sofa bed. The house sleeps 9 plus baby comfortably. The large living/dining room leads onto a private terrace and further onto the pool area, all south facing with shade form the ancient olive tree. It's very private, surrounded by shrubs and plants, slightly lower than the house itself but still with stunning views of the mountains.

The dining area is spacious with dining for 8 (plus high chair), it's next to the which is connected, all open plan airy and light. Bedroom 1 leads off the kitchen and has French windows into the private back garden. Here there are two patios, one sunny one shady, filled with flowers and shrubs for quiet relaxation away form the pool. The living room also has a large lounge area with large comfortable furniture: 4 seater sofa, armchair and coffee table - this faces the outdoor terrace and pool. Through the French widows is the terrace next to the living room, here there is comfy outdoor furniture and is perfect for al fresco drinks and snacks. From this terrace there are spectacular views of the coastal mountains and the sweep of the valley. It is just fantastic at sunset.

The kitchen has a hob, overhead extractor, electric oven, microwave, ample work surfaces and dishwasher. The washing machine is housed in the small garden room accessed form the kitchen back door. There's an iron/ironing board and fridge-freezer in the kitchen and a small breakfast bar for indoor breakfast.

There are three bedrooms, Bedrooms suites 1 & 2 have ensuite bathrooms, bedroom 1 leading off the kitchen and bedroom suite 2 is off the living room through French windows. Bedroom 3, with double bed, is off the sun lounge and is next to the house bathroom. The house bathroom is fitted with a walk in shower. The sun lounge has a sofa bed for two and is at the front of the house also overlooking the pool. There are blinds over the large windows so it is private and comfortable with a large wardrobe.

The owners live in the adjacent building and are on hand for support and advice. However your privacy, and a quiet holiday, are guaranteed.

Further details outdoors

There are several garden areas, including the landscaped front entrance garden and private lower terrace where the 30 foot pool is located. There is also a large back garden, completely separate, bur accessible, form the swimming pool terrace. Everything connects but the different spaces allow groups to have privacy and comfort in different areas.

The trees create privacy and much needed shade although the pool is in full sun all day with some shade form the beautiful ancient olive tree. The gardens and pool terrace are linked by stone pathways and sheltered by over 25 trees: almond, olive jacaranda and a giant eucalyptus which we have grown from seed. The pool area is especially attractive, paved in light stone and surrounded by trees and bamboo. There are loungers, chairs and umbrellas for shade. Overlooking the pool is the 'living room' terrace next to the entrance, also ii front of the sun lunge is a shady area where you can relax in under a huge almond tree, with just the birds for company The BBQ is on this living room terrace, so you can barby while taking in the stunning views of the mountains.
