El Cuadrado is nestled high up above the bustling and traditionally Spanish town of Almunecar, in the heart of the Costa Tropical, with its many beaches, historic old town, tapas squares, shops and restaurants. The uninterrupted views over the town and along over 30kms of the Mediterranean coast, are as breathtaking by day, as they are by night. The lower mountains of the Sierra Nevada remain snowcapped until June and complete an unbeatable panorama. The villa's location provides the best of both worlds, offering complete peace and tranquility to relax and unwind, along with the convenience of only being 4kms drive from the town, shops and beaches etc.

El Cuadrado has a Balearic feel to it and offers spacious, bright rooms with extensive inside/outside living areas that have been designed and decorated with style, comfort and socializing in mind. It is distributed over 3 levels that are all linked by wide exterior steps that run through the centre of the property from a private, gated parking area at the bottom (plenty of space for 4 cars) up to the main upper pool terrace.

Bedrooms 3 and 4 are located on the lower parking level and have 3m wide fully opening and adjustable shuttered entrance doors that allow you to control how much light, shade or gentle breeze the rooms receive. They share an en-suite shower/wc, however, there is another independent large shower/wc on the upper level to ensure there's never any queuing.........

Bedrooms 1 and 2 are located on the mid level, either side of the main steps. Both have en-suites and Bedroom 1 also benefits from a walk in wardrobe and small covered terrace area. All the bedrooms are large and have free standing floor fans to keep you cool at night - without the dehydrating effects of AC.

On the upper level, there is a large (10x4) saltwater swimming pool (no chlorine - no red eyes or green hair) with ambient underwater lighting system and a solar heated spa that comfortably seats 8.

Surrounding the pool is a large sun terrace with traditional esparto sombrillas (sunshades), sun loungers, deck chairs and outdoor shower.

Adjacent to the pool is a spacious covered pergola with comfortable low level Moroccan style seating - perfect for a siesta after a large lunch, playing a few hands of cards or just relaxing out of the mid-day sun and enjoying the views. A bar, including (510ltr) industrial drinks fridge, ice buckets and cocktail making equipment and dining table for 8.

Leading off the pergola is a covered summer kitchen. If you love cooking, you'll love this space - it has a large Argentinian style BBQ, gas plancha, paella ring, fridge, double sink and extensive preparation area. Along with supermarkets, Almunecar has a fantastic municipal market where you'll find a vast array of fresh fish, meat, cheeses and local fruit and vegetables - definitely worth a visit.

The inside of the villa on this level has a big, bright, airy sitting room with fully opening doors onto the pool terrace and furnished with a corner sofa, flat screen TV, computer desk and well stocked book cupboard (along with DVD player, Apple TV, basic satellite, etc). Leading off is a large bathroom with open walk in shower, wc and basin - that can also be accessed directly from the terrace. A newly fitted galley kitchen leads off the sitting room, looking out onto the pool and pergola, with granite worktops, 5 ring gas burner, oven, fridge and dishwasher. The rear entrance to the kitchen has a cleaning cupboard with a 7 drawer freezer (essential for storing plenty of ice).

There is a further terrace behind the house with a shaded sunbathing platform and various fresh herbs growing. From here steps lead up to the very top of the property where there's another terrace - a beautifully quiet area with an old almond tree and the most spectacular views.

If you want a break from cooking, a Spanish chef is available for booking on request to prepare onsite anything from a selection of tapas, to a paella, or a full 3 course meal. A selection of pre-made dishes can also be ordered for the freezer, plus a shopping service by arrangement.

El Cuadrado is the perfect location for families or a group of friends wanting to holiday together - whether you want to switch off and relax by the pool, or have a base to explore the southern coast and inland areas. Car hire is essential, but taxis can be arranged.

NB. Although the pool terrace has safety railings, its 4m height makes it unsuitable for small children/toddlers. Babies are welcome and there's a cot and high chair available - along with babysitting service.

Bath and pool towels are provided. However, we would ask that you please bring your own beach towels.
