Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
This beautiful stone farm cottage is very special set in a unique peaceful location in surroundings of breathtaking natural beauty yet just 3 kms from the picturesque “white” village of Casares and a short drive to the beaches and towns of the Mediterranean coast.
The cottage is in a glorious 12-acre farm estate with lush forests of cork oak ,scented pines and chestnuts, wild flower meadows, delightful gardens and a lovely private swimming pool where you may laze on sunny afternoons enjoying pristine blue skies with eagles gliding overhead.
There are great walks straight out the front gate into the Natural Park where you may glimpse a deer or an ibex and so many varieties of birds it's impossible to list them all.
The scenery is truly spectacular with sea views to Gibraltar and Morocco from parts of the estate.
And while this enchanting mountain retreat offers peace and tranquillity in surroundings of great natural beauty, lively coastal towns such as Estepona and Marbella are just a short drive away.
Casa Luc really offers the best of both worlds.
The beautiful "white village" of Casares , just a 3km drive away down a mountain track has many restaurants and shops. The legendary towns of Ronda, Granada and Seville can all be reached as a day trip, by scenic train if you wish.

The Andalucia region
The beautiful “white village” of Casares a short drive , or walk away has an interesting castle, as well as some shops and restaurants. Supermarkets and further restaurants are to be found on the coast.
Casares is ideally situated as the starting point for exploring the other historic “white villages” in the picturesque Ronda mountains .The legendary towns of Ronda, Granada , and Seville, steeped in history, can all be reached as day trips, by scenic train if you wish. This area is also a birdwatcher’s paradise.
Casares is a picture postcard village with a population of just three thousand and the view from the approach is definitely worth a photo.
To say that Casares is beautiful is an understatement. Most of the white villages are beautiful but there is something very special about the sight of Casares that causes the visitor to park the car and simply stare or take a photo.
There are the sugar cubes again, piled precariously high and just nudging the battlements of an Arab castle. It is hard to believe that this enchanting, typical village is only nine miles from the hustle and bustle of the coast and somehow succeeded in avoiding the coach tour circuit.
The story has it that when Julius Caesar visited the area surrounding this small town, he ordered the construction of the village due to the curative properties of the sulphurous and alkaline waters on a skin infection which had plagued him since childhood. He also constructed a magnificent villa here which is today considered a major historic monument..The nerve centre of Casares is the Plaza de España, a community centre and the place where all the principal streets seem to lead. It can be truly stated that every monument seems to have a story to tell, such as the Capuccinos and Santa Catalina which were built between the 16th and 18th centuries and still remain as fascinating tributes to the history of the town.
In Casares, the fiestas are wonderfully typical and festive. Each year several are celebrated, including that named after the patron saint, the Virgin del Rosario, which is commemorated during the first week of September and the whole town celebrates with wine and music, as well as dancing the wonderfully distinctive "casareno" folk dances, which are unique to this region of Andalucia.
Every corner holds its own, distinct charm in Casares. This, aside from the sheer wealth of history reflected by the numerous remaining monuments and churches. Prehistoric remains are also here, such as the Iber-Roman fortress of Lacipo or the famous Baths de la Hedioda. The natural beauty of the area is also protected and includes the Sierra Bermeja, Sierra Crestallina .
In the Sierra Bermeja one can enjoy an authentic botanical garden, in the Sierra Crestallina, a varied range of birdlife, such as the exotic tawny vulture, the migratory falcon or the eagle.adventure! And for those who are keener on more sporting pursuits, there are a number of equestrian and hiking opportunities. Yes, it is no exaggeration to state that Casares truly has something for everyone.

Second time we've stayed here, can't recommend it too highly. Beautiful spot in a nature reserve, eagles soaring overhead, millions of stars at night as there is very little light pollution.… More
