Historic and unique, this award winning 16th Century Spanish cortijo is perfect for those looking for a holiday home with the “wow” factor. Built behind fortified walls on old ruins, this stunning property offers guests an opportunity to stay in a building that is part of Andalucian history. The country estate has been meticulously restored and renovated to the highest standard, whilst retaining the utmost respect for its original features, leading it to win a coveted EU/Europa Nostra award for the conservation of cultural heritage. Set within 34 acres of private grounds, the house is arranged around two connected courtyards and offers guests a high level of privacy in one of the region's most sought-after areas. With space to sleep up to 18 guests, each en-suite bedroom has been individually designed in keeping with the rest of the house and showcases the perfect fusion between the old and the new, the classic and the contemporary.

There has been no expense spared in the renovation and decoration of the living areas, with a beamed great hall, stunning open-plan living and dining area, and impressive banquet hall that seats up to thirty people. The eye for detail is what really sets this house apart, with original beams, vaulted ceilings, exposed brick and original art frescos on the walls. The villa has been brought into the 21st Century with a modern swimming pool and patio area, billiard room and in-house cinema. The kitchen is fully-equipped with everything guests may need during their stay while still retaining its rustic feel. The entire property has an emphasis on space, luxurious comfort and classic Andalucian style.

The villa is situated just thirty minutes north of the historic city of Ronda, and just outside two different classic while Andalucian villages, which provide all the services and amenities that guests may need during their stay. Three different mountain ranges are within easy reach, and two different national parks are nearby, making it ideal for nature lovers. The cities of Seville, Cordoba and Jerez make wonderful day-trips, as does the Mediterranean coast which can be reached in an hour and a half by car- a drive through fantastic mountain scenery. This 16th Century Spanish cortijo, beautifully restored to the very highest standard and offering modern comforts and conveniences in an historical setting, offers guests a once in a lifetime opportunity to immerse themselves in history during their time in Spain.
