The Property and its gardens

The property has got more than 12 acres plenty of fruit and olive trees around the house.  The orange, lemon, loquats, avocado, custard apple, pomegranate and fig trees in the old vegetable garden will make you feel as being in an oasis full of the Andalusian scent, colour and flavor. The typical grape vine arbor in the front of the cottage will provide you a refreshing shadow during the hottest months of summer. 

When going for a walk inside the property you will discover many beautiful and cozy hideouts among the palm, olive and almond trees from which you can gaze at the fanciful rock forms of the mount named Monte Hacho and enjoy the spectacular views over the Valle del Gualdalhorce. For those people keen on astronomy the nightfall will offer them a clean star-filled sky.

We enjoy such a beautiful natural environment thanks to a very much appreciated good: the water flowing from its springs which the Arabs and even the Romans already made the most of it. 

Entertainment and Activities

Pool, basket hoop, table tennis, badminton, swing, petanque, board games and books.

Foot and Bike Routes

From the very own cottage, there are several magnificent routes, whether by foot or mountain bike, to visit the surrounding area.

Some of the most outstanding ones are the following:

  • By foot: Panoramic route by Monte Hacho.
  • By mountain bike: Panoramic route by the Monte Hacho/ El Chorro-Caminito del Rey route (bikes for rent available).
