From the owner

Possibly the best part of your holiday here has nothing to do with the cottage. It will be the ease at which you will be able to turn off and forget the stresses of everyday life. The location, the climate, the freshness of the air, the fantastic fresh produce and meals, and most of all the great people you will meet without even trying, all contrive to ensure a truly memorable holiday. This cottage is ideal for couples or those with a small family who love the countryside. It is spacious and benefits from air conditioning, a fully fitted kitchen, and wifi. Upstairs your King size bed has crisp Egyptian cotton linen and your large shower is just right after a hard days 'holidaying!! The village itself, is in the beautiful Sierra de Aracena and is definitely in 'rural Spain' with several family run bars and restaurants, all serving freshly prepared Spanish tapas and tasty meals. An ideal chance to brush up on your Spanish if you want, although the villagers are incredibly friendly and so willing to make you feel at home.. You will have a Flat screen TV, a DVD player, and loads of films as well as books, Cds and games. During your stay you can go and pick as many fresh seasonal vegetables as you wish from our large 'huerta'. In summer these include onions the size of bowling balls, the tastiest tomatoes ever, green and red peppers, zucchini, cucumbers and the list goes on...We provide a welcome pack including wine, beer, milk, homemade fresh bread, butter, orange juice, tea, coffee, sugar, homemade Seville orange marmalade, eggs from our girls and seasonal Spanish produce. If you come on a Sunday, or bank holiday, I am happy to do some shopping in advance for you.

Further details

A warm woodburner in winter. cool thick walls and airconditioning in summer, all help to make this an all year round hideaway holiday where you can relax and unwind.The food in the area is lmost all freshly prepared and not a microwave in sight. This is the area of the black pig and the meat flavours are unlike any pork you have ever tasted. The fat is also scientifically proven to reduce cholesterol as the Iberico pig lives in the country side and centuries ago the pigs were crossed with wild boars. Each pig has an average of 1000 square meters to itself and eats mainly acorns and natural vegetation.

Further details indoors

The views from your windows are over the village and to the Sierras. There is secure private parking on our land so no need to have to find a space. The old thick walls also help to keep the house cool in the summer and warm in winter. Your kitchen is spacious with all you will need if you enjoy cooking. The fresh produce here in rural Spain has so much flavour and you are welcome to pick the garden seasonal vegetables for your cuisine. Our free range chickens provide the best eggs with bright orange yolks and you may enjoy feeding them along with our sheep that eat from your hand.

Further details outdoors

You have a private sun terrace that faces south and is a real sun trap in the day and with soft lighting in the evening it is an ideal spot in summer to enjoy a few drinks or your dinner. There are sun loungers, a table and chairs, a shaded area and large umbrella. Surrounded by potted flowers and shrubs, it is a lovely area to relax. Alternately you may like to sit in our large garden under the palm trees and while away lazy afternoons.
