Countryside cottage in Casares with private pool

Savour nature and quiet the mind!

Thanks to its location in the Sierra Crestellina Natural park, this cottage is a wonderful sanctuary from everyday stress. The landscape is stunning and living here in your own little paradise so close to nature is a real and hard to find- treat. Yet, if you wish to spend a day at the beach or play at one of the many golf courses in the area, you’re only a short drive away from all the amenities the coast has to offer.

Location and outside area

In 1989, the Sierra Crestellina (“Crested Range”) was officially granted the Protected Natural Site status- it’s Paraje Natural. This traditional, 100 year-old-stone cottage is located in the middle of all this beauty and used to be the home of a farming family. It’s located just north of Casares (3 km) - a very Andalucian picturesque village and a true labyrinth of whitewashed houses, small streets, alleys and little squares. Casares has many shops, good restaurants and tapas-bars. Travelling north from Casares you may drive to the ancient town of Ronda with its impressive gorge or for a longer trip the beautiful, legendary city of Seville. There are many other sightseeing options just a day trip away too.
For those who like to walk, there are many possibilities with varying difficulties. There are several paths you can follow, but don’t miss the path to the top of the Sierra Crestellina- the views are spectacular and span continents. Pick a clear day and once there, you will have impressive 360º views over the surrounding villages of Casares and Gaucin and over the Mediterranean Sea, to Gibraltar and Morocco. The area is a bird lovers paradise too and many varieties of birds can be spotted. Vultures and eagles can be observed from the los Buitres (“the Vultures”) viewpoint. You may also get a glimpse of a deer, an ibex or a wild boar.
The cottage is reached by a part concrete/part dirt road (in good condition) and set in a glorious 12-acre farm estate with lush forests of cork oak, scented pines and chestnuts, wild flower meadows and delightful gardens. The private swimming pool comes with teak sun loungers and is surrounded by lovely gardens and tall cypress trees. It harmonizes beautifully in the landscape and looks like a natural spring where you may laze on sunny afternoons enjoying pristine blue skies with eagles gliding overhead.
At the entrance of the cottage there’s a stone paved terrace, the ideal spot for al fresco dining enjoying the lush gardens. It's equipped with a barbecue, table, chairs and a sun umbrella for shade.
The friendly and helpful property owner, Kate, also lives on the estate herself now and then. The cottage is privately-sited, and you won’t see Kate except to welcome you, and help if required.

A little jewel of a hide-away in the Andalucian mountains!

We spent a week at this wonderful little place away from it all. It's an ideal place for a couple looking for a somewhere to be in peace and at ease. A place with a view down the valley and beyond, with just enough amenities to make you feel comfortable in a rustic, down-to-earth way. And with a wonderful, secluded pool all to yourselves on top of that. For those in fond of hikes in nature, the area has a lot to offer: paths and trails crisscross the nature reserve surrounding the cottage. It's a rural area with sheep and goats roaming the hillsides, and you can be quite certain to be woken up at least one morning by the neighbour's rooster :-) The picturesque white village of Casares is three kms down the road / track from your place, and well worth to explore as well. And if you still long for city life, Marbella and Gibraltar are conveniently close by. The online booking with Kate the owner was totally hassle free and efficient. In short: a stay we utterly enjoyed, and highly recommend to others!

The most relaxing holiday ever

I stayed here for almost two weeks with my teenage daughter. This cottage is a rare find - a holiday cottage just for two, in unspoiled, private, peaceful, tranquil surroundings, with spectacular mountain views and its very own private, beautiful, swimming pool. This property has all those things. The cottage is reached by a mountain track, which although is a bit daunting at first, is absolutely no problem. Its position up the mountain is what gives it its views, charm and beauty. This is the kind of place that you do not need to leave, just reading, swimming and being by the pool surrounded by such beautiful nature ensures total relaxation. Nearby is the pretty small town of Casares where a handful of simple restaurants are available for meals. We used the Carrefour in nearby Estepona for grocery shopping, about a 25 minute drive away, it is closed on Sundays though so if you plan to arrive on a Sunday take enough food to get you through the first day. Actually my advice for this cottage is arrive in Spain, go to the grocery store and buy all you for a week, go to the cottage and enjoy! The cottage is simple but decorated in a traditional, pleasing way with all mod cons and excellent WIFI availability for those who need it. The little kitchen is well stocked with utensils etc. for easy cooking. The thick walls of the cottage and a simple fan ensure the cottage stays cool even though temperatures can be high during the day. Kate the English owner was on hand if we needed her and responded to all my queries / requests immediately. She was very kind and helpful, living in the house next door, but did not intrude in our privacy at all. We flew into Malaga and hired a car, then used the toll highway to reach the cottage, the tolls are about 15 euros one way to the cottage but well worth it as the highway is fast and quiet. Just make sure you have euro change available , there are 3 toll booths between the airport and the cottage turn off. We visited Ronda, about an hour’s drive away through spectacular scenery, well worth a visit to this historic beautiful town. We had a truly wonderful holiday, it is the perfect place to unwind and recharge, we will be returning!

Paradise in the Mountains

We spent almost 3 weeks at the idyllic cottage in the mountains above Casares. The location is perfect for ensuring total relaxation with amazing views, great sounds of goats with bells and the company of two lovely dogs, Alfie and Emily. Overhead, eagles glide in the most balletic of movements. Kate, the owner, is very, very helpful from the initial stages of booking and throughout the stay. There are plenty of amazing places to visit around this region, equally great places to walk and on those days off when you want to chill, there is a lovely private pool where you can sit and read or snooze. We have had one of the most relaxing holidays ever and while the short road presented an initial challenge, I had it mastered in no time at all. Casares is a stunning little village. You will find most things you require there but within a short trip to Sabinillas you will find a range of supermarkets. Estepona is close by too. If you seek something a little more expensive, take a look at Sotogrande. We didn't like it but accepted that it would appeal to a certain type of person. Take a look anyways. Coming to this cottage will ensure that you relax. It is a very special place. Enjoy.

Peaceful, scenic, restful holiday

The villa is set in a wooded valley with wonderful views across to the Sierra Cresallina. A short walk takes you to a very private swimming pool with fantastic views up to the hills. Good walking and wonderful birdlife. Plenty of migrating birds when we arrived in September bringing eagles, falcons and hawks as well as resident griffon vultures. We planned to travel a lot and never did, preferring to stay put and enjoy the locality with occasional trips to the beautiful nearby town of Casares. The accommodation is rustic but lovely - good shower and small kitchen and you'll sit outdoors much of the time.
