c/Barranquillo 2 Ojen
Townhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Charming, comfortable village house with pool, terrace and dramatic views
A complete gem of a house in a typical Andalusian 'white village'. 3 double bedrooms, each with own bathroom, and 2 with air-conditioning. Sitting room with log stove; dining room, upper terrace, kitchen, TV/DVD, WiFi. Own POOL.
Uniquely for the centre of a village, this beautifully furnished home has a flower filled garden with a small pool.
The house is our home in Spain and furnished to a high standard so for this reason we regret that we have to say no children under 12.
The house is situated in the old (and prettiest) part of the village where the little narrow streets were made to accommodate mules rather than cars. At the back of the house is a terraced garden filled with flowers and vines and a lemon tree and it also has a small swimming pool. From the railings at the end of the garden you look down onto a valley of smallholdings with the Mediterranean in the distance.
The house: The building was originally two old village houses which we have joined together and converted with much care. It retains the old beams, very thick walls and many other features that are typical of the old houses of this area. The result is a very comfortable and enchanting house in which to stay.
Our housekeeper comes every day (except Sunday) to make the beds and water the plants so that it is a truly relaxing holiday for all of you.
Above the village the town hall has built an Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis court, state of the art gym and a restaurant with the most spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
The village: Ojen is very dramatically situated in the mountains of the Sierra de las Nieves Nature Park. It is 8 km. due north from Marbella which has the best climate in the Mediterranean. It is a 45 minute drive from Malaga airport along a brand new toll road.
It is hard to believe that the coast and the tourists are so near because this is still a traditional Spanish village with a marvellously relaxed way of life. From the tranquillity of our garden you are a two minute walk from the village square which is filled with tapas bars and shops and the hustle and bustle of a prosperous large village. There is an excellent market on Saturdays. For eating you can choose from spit-roasted chickens to take away, or pizzas through a variety of excellent restaurants, none of which are more than a few minutes walk away.
The area: For some 'bling' factor there is Marbella just down the road, which is a shopper's paradise and along the coast is the famous Puerto Banus where you can view boats and gin-palaces.
