Fabulous house in rural Andalusia for serious R&R. Perfect for groups of friends or family wanting a genuine Andalusian experience amidst the olive groves with all modern amenities and an amazing large outdoor pool, BBQ and dining area, a Moroccan lounge area and even a private gym! Some of the most spectacular views in Andalusia over miles of olive groves and located halfway between Granada City and Malaga for easy access to both. A house you never want to leave!

The space
If you are looking for a beautiful rural retreat, you won't find a better, or more authentic setting than this. The location is magnificent with rolling hills of olives, almonds, oak and pine all around, and views in every direction as far as you can see. It's classic Andalusian countryside at its very best.

This attractively restored farmhouse has a fabulous setting in a fabulous location. In the midst of some of Andalusia's most genuine countryside. Once upon a time this was just a humble, crumbling rural ruin. No longer! It has been completely rebuilt, renovated and extended by its English owners into a beautiful, spacious five bedroom holiday home.

One enters into an external courtyard with a giant oak tree welcoming your arrival, through traditional double wooden doors and into a central internal courtyard, complete with an Andalusian tiled fountain - – a perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee or breakfast.

The internal courtyard is at the centre of the house, from here doors and stairs lead to its various “wings”. One door leads directly into the hub of the house, the main living area, divided into varying environments for reading, TV, games , dining and cooking.

First, the games or reading area with a built in sofa and comfy 2 seater, low coffee table and a large screen for games and movies.

Through to the sitting, dining and kitchen areas - The kitchen is well equipped, thoroughly modern and efficient, light and bright, with all mod-cons: electric oven, 5 ring gas hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, it also has a walk in larder with a 2nd freezer to store the extra ice and ice-cream for those hot Andalusian days. A centre island unit with two stools adds work space and a place to drink your morning tea, or coffee made by the coffee machine available. A glass dining table seating 8/10 makes the inside dining area fully functional to fit all the villa residents in one sitting.

At the other side of the room the living area with two large, comfy sofas, a glass fronted fire place for the cooler evenings and big French windows opening onto a terrace with the most wonderful views!!

The two downstairs bedrooms are accessed from this living room. First a twin with en suite shower room, then two steps down to a well appointed double bedroom with en suite bathroom and access to a lovely little private terrace for two, looking through pine trees to the same spectacular views – Or on the other side of the room a door leads back to the central patio. These two interconnecting rooms are ideal for a family with children – But also the door can be closed and they can both become totally private and independent.

On this ground level there is also a WC/laundry room that can be accessed from the dining area or from the pool area providing easy access for those lazy pool days.

From the living room, stairs lead up to the master bedroom. A large, light, bright room with high ceilings, whitewashed walls and terracotta floors and a super-king sized bed – A truly relaxing space. The en suite bathroom is in keeping with the bedroom: large, light and what views! It has a walk in shower and a freestanding claw-bath (with shower).

From the master bedroom, there are doors on one side that open on to a small terrace looking on to the “era” (the old stone threshing circle) at the back of the house. On the other side, there are doors that open onto the most spectacular sun terrace, complete with sun loungers and views of the hills and mountains that roll and roll across the vast, undulating horizon which sweeps out in front of you. There can be no better place from where to enjoy the sunsets and the night skies - Truly spectacular. From this terrace a backstairs can take you down to the pool area.

Back at the central courtyard a metal stair and walkway leads up to what remains of the original old farm house, now converted into two lovely bedrooms. One double, with access onto the large “era” at the back of the house. The other room in this part of the house is a long room with vaulted ceiling, Kingsize bed and fabulous Juliet balcony double doors. It enjoys plenty of natural light, excellent views and the charm of the old, rustic country cortijo. These rooms share a large shower room - which also has incredible views!

The inside of the house is comfortable and pleasing but, for sure, you will be spending most of your time outside. There is so much outdoor space.... and what lovely space.

From the kitchen, large glass doors open onto the pool area, and oh what a pool! If in the mood to relax in the sun, you will no doubt simply while away happy hour after happy hour enjoying the sun, or under a parasol, on one of the many sun beds, daydreaming the day away – Or, if in the mood for relaxing in the shade, you can levitate towards the well placed outdoor Moroccan relaxation area under the shade of a majestic alcarrobo tree - the built-in benches, topped with plush cushions, are an ideal place for an afternoon siesta or just chilling - A real oasis of calm.

Directly outside the kitchen a wide porch runs along the length of the house. To the right of the doors a long tiled dining table and chairs, to the left yet another sitting area with sofas which is a lovely spot to enjoy a glass of wine or to eat outside in the fresh air.

On the far side of the pool is, yet another, covered dining area and a large outdoor kitchen with a built in BBQ .

In all, a perfect place to lounge next to the pool, dine alfresco, or take in the surrounding landscape.

In addition to all of the space both inside and outside the house, for those that like to work out or socialize in a smaller group there is a large external games room next to the era and terraced gardens with a pool table, small bar area and gym equipment – perfect for any teenagers in the group or just those young at heart!

Hi! I am Mané! We lived in London our whole lives and bought a fantastic Corjito (farmhouse) in Spain the beautiful Andalusian countryside, spent years renovating it and filled it with all our favourite things to make it our home away from home....and then relocated to Hong Kong for 5 years! So whilst we cannot enjoy it right now we want to make sure that others can. We have been renting the house for the last 2 years on (Hidden by Airbnb) and have some fantastic reviews and return customers and are now excited to be adding the listing to Airbnb. We hope you will join us as the house is just spectacular!
