Casa Rustica

Casa Rustica: An idyllic romantic retreat in Andalucía’s Cadiz Province

Are you looking for a romantic and tranquil escape in Andalucía, surrounded by the most idyllic and inspiring of landscapes? If so, then let us take you near to the picturesque whitewashed inland village of Algodonales and through the doors of Casa Rustica.

Casa Rustica is a quirky, comfortable and delightfully rustic – hence its name – 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom country home that’s nestled on a hillside and boasts panoramic views of mountains, olive-covered hills and a lake.

This pretty stone cottage boasts an array of eye-catching natural features, included exposed stone walls, both internally and externally, traditional tiles underfoot, a fireplace and wooden beams overhead.

Picture windows not only let swathes of sunshine filter into the cottage but ensure the incredible vista that surrounds Casa Rustica at every angle can be enjoyed to the maximum.

The cobalt waters shimmering under the sunlight of the Embalse de Zahara can be seen in the distance, backed by the unmistakable peaks of the Sierra de Grazalema. Rolling towards the lake and mountains is a sea of undulating hillsides carpeted in olive trees.

This enthralling scene can also be soaked up from Casa Rustica’s private pool and open and covered terraces flanked by the cottage’s extensive grounds littered in olive trees.

Guests can truly switch off and relax at this idyllic rural retreat and leisurely explore the many delights on their doorstep in this unique and mesmerising part of Andalucía.

The pretty ‘pueblo blanco’ – whitewashed village – of Algodonales can be reached down a country lane, just 2km from Casa Rustica. The lakeside village of Zahara de la Sierra is 7km from the cottage. This quaint little town has all the hallmarks of a fairy-tale Spanish village burrowed on a hillside overlooking the turquoise lake with a crumbling castle perched at its pinnacle.

The larger whitewashed town of Ronda is a 35-minute drive from Casa Rustica, famed for its plunging gorge, Moorish architecture and legendary 18th century bullring.

Luxury 4 bed villa in Mallorca – Villa Valledemossa

Villa Valldemossa – Luxury 4 bed villa in Mallorca, a romantic retreat strategically positioned close to the home of a great composer.

For pianists, classical music enthusiasts and even folk dance fanatics yearning for some musical inspiration in the most inspiring of locations, a stay at Villa Valldemossa on the island of Mallorca may be just the ticket?

With Mallorca not boasting the most obvious classical music history, you may be asking yourself what connection does this beautiful Balearic island have with this particularly assuaging genre of music.

The Carthusian monastery of La Cartuja, home to the Polish pianist and composer Frederick Choplin during the winter of 1938 – 39, of course!

Nestled close to the historically iconic and scenic town of Valldemossa on Mallorca’s north coast, is the quaint and picturesque Carthusian Monastery La Cartuja. In respectful celebration and remembrance of the great composer, the monastery hosts daily piano recitals of Chopin’s work as well as fortnightly folk-dancing performances.

With views towards this culturally and musically significant monastery, the outstanding Villa Valldemossa would be a delectable choice of accommodation for anyone who holds Frederick Choplin in awe.

Although being decorated and furnished to an extremely high spec, comprising of an exquisite sun terrace, swimming pool and covered balconies, all of which provide sensational views of the luscious landscapes surrounding the property, Villa Valldemossa is by no means exclusively crafted for classical music-lovers and passionate pianists.

On the contrary, Villa Valldemossa is an attractive retreat for anyone seeking sun, tranquillity and a touch of class.

Being one of the “great masters of romantic music” it seems uncannily appropriate that such as romantic rural retreat is located ‘a stone’s throw’ from a monastery where one of the finest composers the world has ever seen temporarily lived.

A week’s rental at this Luxury 4 bed villa in Mallorca, Villa Valldemossa, which sleeps eight, costs £595 in April and rises to £2395 in peak season.
