Originally built in 1881 this unique and imposing property lies in the heart of the countryside near Arcos de la Frontera and has been in the family of one of the world's most famous and respected sherry producing dynasties for over two generations.
Sedately positioned at the end of a long, private country track in an estate of some 900 acres, La Parrilla commands impressive rural views. In the distance stands the former Moorish castle of Gigonza whilst a grove of 400 almond trees starts next to the swimming pool. Whichever direction you choose to explore you will never be far from the vineyards themselves - still an integral feature of the 'hacienda'.
The owners have thoughtfully and tastefully refurbished the entire property to a high standard. Internally, rooms are generously proportioned and care has been taken to retain the character of a bygone era. Externally there is a shaded, lawned area to the rear with steps at the side leading down to the private swimming pool where the terrace alongside makes a splendid spot in which to enjoy a barbecue.
The spectacular hilltop town of Arcos de La Frontera is within 25km, Medina Sidonia (21km), Jerez (36km) while Cádiz and the unspoilt Costa de la Luz are around a one hour drive. The natural park of Grazalema, home to some breathtaking scenery, is an hour away while the stunning city of Sevilla and rich history of Ronda can also be sampled as excellent day trips.
