This traditional-style Andalusian cortijo stands amid the incomparable scenery of one of Andalusia's most enchanting regions, the hills of Ronda. It offers a unique opportunity to savour the old-world charm of southern Spain and combines a deceptive simplicity of decor with all the comforts and facilities to be expected of a property of this standard.

The accommodation, arranged on two floors, includes an ample entrance hall leading to a large, comfortably-furnished living room and a separate dining area. A spacious, well-equipped kitchen and a separate WC and laundry area complete the facilities on the ground floor. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, including the master bedroom with its large en suite bathroom and enjoying views over the garden from two different angles. There is also a fifth single bedroom. A separate apartment provides accommodation for teenagers, guests who desire more privacy, or staff. The outdoor lifestyle can be enjoyed to the full in the tastefully laid out garden, with its magnificent swimming pool, poolside shower facilities, fully-equipped kitchen and barbecue area, large dining table and chairs under an attractive pergola, and a plentiful supply of sun loungers. The extensive grounds are set against a backdrop of trees, open countryside and horse paddocks -a traditional feature of this part of Spain.

With a perfect Mediterranean climate and more than 300 days of sun a year, the region of Malaga is one of the most visited areas in the whole of Spain. From soaring mountains in the east, to secluded bays and huge stretches of sandy beach along the famous Costa del Sol, Malaga is unique in its diversity. Malaga city has embraced tourism with open arms, and the result is a lively and cosmopolitan city with a vibrant and glamourous social scene. More than 3000 years of history is reflected in the city?s rich artistic and cultural features and traditions, from the beautiful Roman theatre to the vibrant Catholic fiestas and delicious Moorish-inspired food. The grand Cathedral contains elements of Renaissance, Baroque and Neo-classical styles, whilst the 11th Century Alcazaba fort offers spectacular views across the city and the port.
Away from the capital, the region has a wide selection of resorts and towns for visitors to explore. Bursting with top restaurants and stylish bars is the exclusive Marbella, where fishermen rub shoulders with millionaires and the Puerto Banus harbour plays host to some of the world?s most expensive yachts throughout the year. Or there is laid-back Estepona, nestled between the mountains and the sea, and one of the Costa del Sol?s true gems. With an elegant marina, a charming town centre and medieval castle, Estepona sits at the bottom of a fir-covered mountain range. For nature lovers there is the Selwo park. One of a kind in Europe and with more than 100 hectares of land, and animals from more than five continents, it offers visitors a truly unique safari experience. Further inland is the ancient city of Ronda, which is situated above the beautiful valley of the River Guadeleve, and is said to be the spot where the modern form of bull-fighting on foot was born. Whether you are looking to dine in some of southern Spain?s most sophisticated restaurants, relax on one of the coast?s many beaches or explore the ancient villages, Malaga offers something for everyone.
