Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Beautifully maintained and furnished throughout, Guaro Hills is the ideal setting for a "get away from it all" holiday of a lifetime. Approached via a 3km hillside track, some five minutes' drive from Guaro, the house has uninterrupted panoramic views of the Andalucian countryside from its extensive terraces and garden, where there is a strategically placed summerhouse for visitors to sit and soak up the scenery. Between the house and garden is a superb swimming pool (13m in length), surrounded by spacious terraces for sunbathing, relaxing and barbecuing. There's a further shaded patio area to the front of the house, again with fabulous views.

The Andalucia region
This delightful corner of Andalucia enjoys the best of all worlds, being just 30 minutes' drive away from the busy coastal resorts with their ample tourist attractions and nightlife, while offering visitors the opportunity to explore the wonderful countryside right on their doorstep and experience traditional Spanish customs and village life. Sunshine can be guaranteed from May to September, and it is mostly warm and sunny in April and October. At other times there may be cooler days and the odd spell of rain, but these mid- and low-season months hold many advantages for those who want a more active holiday - a time when you can golf, walk, cycle or horse ride without searing heat sapping your energy!
Guaro is one of the few "white villages" of Andalucia that is relatively unaffected by tourism and has yet to be "put on the map". Similarly unspoilt villages, like Alozaina and Yunquera, are within a 20 - 30 minute drive. Larger neighbouring "villages" like Coin, Monda and Alhaurin el Grande are becoming increasingly cosmopolitan and between them offer a whole range of amenities and activities - even a bowling alley!
Tourist information and local maps will be provided for you in the villa.
GOLF AND TENNIS:
Alhaurin Golf - a beautiful 18-hole championship-standard golf course designed by Seve Ballesteros, with wonderful mountain views and luxurious facilities. Tennis is available at the adjoining hotel.
Lauro Golf - 27 holes overlooking the Guadalhorce valley. Relaxed atmosphere in the typical cortijo-style clubhouse.
HORSERIDING - the beautiful Andalucian countryside can be explored on horseback, using safe tracks, from several riding schools in the area.
BIRDWATCHING - among the birds to be seen regularly in this part of Spain are eagles, buzzards, owls, hawks, partridges, golden oriels, bee-eaters, hoopoes, swifts and swallows. The Laguna Fuente de Piedra, the most important flamingo nesting site in Spain, is near Antequera, just an hour's drive away.
WALKING - there are extensive walking trails throughout the nearby Sierra del las Nieves, including the spectacular walk to the summit of La Concha which gives panoramic views of the whole Costa del Sol from Gibraltar to the Sierra Nevada and across the Mediterranean to the African Coast.
SKIING - during the season many of our guests enjoy a day trip to the slopes of the Sierra Nevada, a couple of hours away.
