Finca | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A huge open plan apartment (225 m2) (1 of only 2) over an entire floor of a newly renovated farmhouse, with fast road access to the stunning town of Ronda AND within walking distance of the local whitewashed village of Serrato with its shops and tapas bars. There is a very large (12 x 10 metre) pool in the grounds with stunning mountain views surrounding the apartment.
The apartment is unusually surrounded by natural streams from the nearby spring which make the grounds very green and full of bird life. As the property is 1 km from the village there is no light pollution and stargazing opportunities are superb. Shooting stars are common in the balmy July and August nights.
The property is only 20 minutes from the superb Spanish lake district and is perfect for bird lovers, walkers and stargazers. It is equidistant between Seville Granada and Cordoba for those wishing tour around Andalucía.

Bordered by natural streams from the nearby spring water this creates an oasis of verdant green plant life in the area, attracts a large variety of birds and means the grounds boast a large variety of fruit trees including, cherry, pear, plum, fig, apple and pomegranate. Guests are welcome to pick the fruit in season. A superb setting for watching the falling and shooting stars which appear on balmy August nights. The large swimming pool is a major feature of the property, It blends luxuriously into the olive grove where its position takes full advantage of the amazing views over the mountains. The pool is big enough to do those important lengths for fitness or to simply relax in style. Measures 12m x 6m (not an average pool!).

The Andalucia region
We are located in the most beautiful part of Spain, with very easy, fast road access to the stunning town of Ronda. The scenery is second to none. Our apartment is in a micro-area which looks similar to Tuscany and is unsurpassed in terms of its natural beauty. Our ideal location means that we are within walking distance of the village of Serrato with its grocery, bakery, pharmacy and cafe/tapas bars, however we are equidistant between Seville and Granada and close to Setenil De Las Bodegas and the fabulous Spanish Lake District, which is only 20 minutes drive away.
Ronda is a typically spanish town with an amazing situation perched on a cliff top. It offers dramatic views of the Ronda Mountains and is steeped in history. It is host to some fabulous restaurants. Explore the old town's cobbled streets and shaded squares. We are perfectly placed for day trips to Seville, Granada and Cordoba for visits to the Alhambra Palace and Mezquita, as we are placed equidistant from these three legendary Andalucian cities. The cathedral in Seville is not to be missed. Within 20 minutes drive there are the Spanish Lakes which are absolutely stunning, turquoise in colour these must be seen and are great for a day swimming, canoeing or pedaloe-ing, there are plenty of restaurants with great views of the area for a relaxed lunch. We particularly recommend the whitewashed village of Setenil (15 minutes drive away) which is home to the unusual cave houses, these are set into rock and are quite a spectacle. The market square is a great place for lunch.
