Holiday cottage in Grazalema
Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Modern facilities, total privacy and a tremendous view from a vantage point in the Ronda Natural Park. Sleeps 2 to 6 plus child.
Five minutes from charismatic Grazalema village, your newly-built villa is lodged high up in the natural park's intriguingly rugged hillside.
The track up to the villa is perfectly manageable in a normal car, but it's steep alright and you'll want first gear for the last 200 metres.
You're thrillingly on your own here, well away from it all, hidden among the limestone crags. You have direct access to the hillside and can walk up to the mountain ridge for stunning panoramic vistas.
The house and blue mosaic pool are in sun most of the day, with different furnished and shaded spots to sit out. A couple of outside areas are surfaced in white pebbles and there's a grassy area by the pool.
The villa is modern in build and facilities. The salient points are:
• An airy, double-height living room with a grand picture window view of the mountains
• Four bedrooms (three doubles and a single for a child)
• A smart, new kitchen with wooden food-prepping bar and modern bathrooms
• WiFi internet (who doesn't want it these days?)
• A pool and olive tree garden in plenty of sun
• A furnished patio with wooden dining table and sunshade
The seclusion and the view are what really make the place stand out.
Lounging in the sun, or resting in the shade of the old oak tree after a dip in the pool, are both inviting notions, but sooner or later you'll be tempted to roam up above the house and garden. The boundary between the property and the common hillside not marked and if you head up 15 minutes, you'll be rewarded with views of all the peaks of Grazalema Natural Park, the Serrania de Ronda, villages and on a clear day even Sierra Nevada in distant Granada.
Nearby Grazalema, tucked away in its own Natural Park, is a delightfully well preserved village with a lot of history and a willingness to make visitors feel welcome and well-served. It has all the normal facilities you may need, a variety of café-bars and restaurants, some with terraces (and WiFi) by the quiet central square. It has an imaginative mini-spa baths, an excellent tourism office, and a gorgeous location with sweeping view down the valley.
Many people come here solely for the walking. There are fantastic hikes in the hills and also caves to explore.
What's more, offered for free here ia a special opportunity to explore one of the very best walks in Grazalema. The owner is an accredited local walking guide, with access to some of the restricted areas in Grazalema Natural Park. If he's available the week you are there, he will guide you (cost-free) on a morning walk of 3 to 4 hours, having talked over the choice with you on arrival.
For other days out, half an hour away is quintessentially Andalusian Ronda with its dramatic bridges spanning the gorges and inspiration for Hemingway, who spent hours at its bullring, the oldest in Spain.
We also recommend a picnic on the green banks of a lagoon 15 minutes away, when you can paddle, swim and shelter from the sun under the trees.
