If you’ve yet to visit Andalucía’s ‘big three’ cities, you’re certainly in for a treat when you do. By ‘big three’ we mean Granada, Cordoba and Seville, three remarkable Spanish cities, laden in extraordinary Moorish architecture, brimming with zest, traditionalism and vivacity and paradisal for culture vultures, foodies, musicians, shopaholics, historians and more.
The traditional and distinct southern region of Andalucía is brimming in wacky, wonderful and thoroughly unique fairs and fiestas all year round. In fact, you don’t have to travel too far or for too long to come across a memorable festival in Andalucía and party amongst the locals.
If you’re looking for quality, self-catering accommodation not far from the golden sands of the beautiful Costa de la Luz in Andalucía, then let us introduce you to the fabulous Casa de las Higueras. This spacious, contemporary villa has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and can sleep six guests in comfort.
If you’re looking for somewhere exceptional to stay, that overlooks the water in the beautiful seaside town of Fuente del Gallo in Andalucía, then look no further than La Torre de Fuente del Gallo. This four-bedroom, two-bathroom villa can sleep up to six guests.
Welcome to El Hoyilla, a brand-new villa that we are thrilled to include in our Andalusian programme. This smart country home can be found just outside the beautiful whitewashed pueblo of El Gastor, and a mere 2km from the village’s atmospheric central square.
With balmy evenings of sunsets descending behind long, jagged mountain ranges, giant-sized pots sizzling with paella served on the beach, and mouth-watering tapas washed down with ice-cold cerveza, there’s something about the culturally and scenically-distinct land of Andalucía that cannot be rivalled.
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.
To check availability, drool over the photos and book to stay at the incredible romantic Casa Rustica, head to the property’s webpage here.
The shimmering white-washed town of Ronda, stood high on a hillside overlooking a vista of mountains, meadows, and lakes, is a true sight for sore eyes. This ‘pueblo blanco’ – white village – is one of the most celebrated in Andalucía, with good reason.
We have to admit, Villa Alaju is situated in one of the most spectacular locations of our Andalusia portfolio! This stunning three-bedroom, two-bathroom villa lies at the zenith of its own private peninsula, looking down on the sparkling water of the impressive inland lake known as the Embalse de Zahara.
The beautiful whitewashed village of El Gastor, close to the more famous town of Ronda in Andalusia, is a true gem to visit. If you are thinking about staying near this fabulous hillside village and discovering authentic Spain, then why not stay at El Dolmen de Alaju?
