Holiday Rental House
La Torre + cottage consists of a main house (3 double bedrooms) and one adjacent cottage (1 double bedroom). The house lies in an idyllic setting amongst beautiful scenery. Hidden away in a valley 15 minutes from the picturesque white town of Cortes de la Frontera and 45 minutes from Ronda, while the Costa del Sol is only an hour drive. This property is unique in many ways. The accommodation offers total privacy and is of a high standard to provide you a totally relaxing holiday. Situated along a winding 4 km track with a spectacular mountain backdrop, one passes through the main gate into a private 200 hectares domain (finca Alfacara) of aged oaks, olives and fruit trees, bubbling streams and the impressive sight of this fully restored traditional cortijo.

The house lies in an idyllic setting amongst beautiful scenery. Hidden away in a valley 15 minutes from the picturesque white town of Cortes de la Frontera and 45 minutes from Ronda, while the Costa del Sol is only an hour drive. This property is unique in many ways. The accommodation offers total privacy and is of a high standard to provide you a totally relaxing holiday. Situated along a winding 4 km track with a spectacular mountain backdrop, one passes through the main gate into a private 200 hectares domain (finca Alfacara) of aged oaks, olives and fruit trees, bubbling streams and the impressive sight of this fully restored traditional cortijo. The estate houses animals like horses, donkeys and peacocks. If you’re lucky you might also catch a glimpse of wild animals like dear and foxes. In La Torre you will experience nature to the max. Enter the villa through its impressive Indian wooden doors and you realize no expenses have been saved to create this lovely property. Inside the characteristic pillars of the spacious entrance hall give a feeling of being in the ‘Mezquita de Codoba’. To your left you walk into the historical part of this old ‘cortijo’. Standing in the blue living room one can dream of the lives which took place between the thick Spanish walls. Inhabited by Romans, the whole area is scattered with Roman remains. During the renovation of the house an original roman bread oven got excavated which can be admired now. Apart from the blue living room, with its big arched window looking out on the pool and the gardens, there’s a second comfortable living space with Satellite TV, DVD, Music System with CD Player and WiFi Internet (bring your own laptop) and a glass fronted fireplace for those chilly winter nights. The whole house is equipped with central heating and air-conditioning. Inside, solid oak furniture, comfortable sofa’s, artwork, carpets imported from India, and eclectic finishes create an interesting Spanish / Asian ambience. The open plan kitchen is well equipped with an oven, and ceramic hob, a microwave and dishwasher. The fridge/freezer and washing machine are situated in the larder alongside. Preparing your meals, with a glass of wine at hand and chatting with your friends and family at the same time is all easily done. Enjoy your meals in the dining area which opens up from the kitchen or dine ‘al fresco’ under the pergola on the spacious circular sun terrace at the front of the villa. Here the views are amazing. After you’ve fully enjoyed the views of the UNESCO Biosphere mountains of Grazalema, prepare yourself for those warm Andalucian nights, clear skies filled with endless stars and only the reassuring sound of the sheep bells in the distance. If you’re looking for peace and tranquillity, you’ve found it right here. The three bedrooms of the main house are upstairs, each of them with splendid views. Two are double bedded and there is one twin (with the two beds pushed together). Each bedroom has an en-suite shower room. The most spacious one is located in the tower. Open the balcony door and soak in the clean air and calming views while you prepare yourself for a special day. This country villa is constructed of natural stone and traditional render. The tower is visible from far away and gives the building its characteristic grandeur. Just to the side of the house, there is a bedroom suite cottage with four poster bed, comfortable sitting area with sofas and easy chairs and shower area. This cottage is an absolute delight, built on the remains of the old animal stalls; with bits of natural rock and plants inside, tall stone walls give way to the high thatched roof, which almost makes you feel you’re in Africa. Outside the swimming pool is divine, a welcome break on a hot summer day. Around the pool you will find an immaculate green lawn, with sun loungers under little palm sunshades.

About the neighbourhood
The villa is located right in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda, a mountainous area around Ronda, dotted with little white villages and wedged in between three national parks. The area is of exceptional beauty and relatively green compared to the rest of Spain. The closest village is Cañada del Real Tesoro, a small village with a few shops, tapas bars and a train station. Further up you will find Cortes de la Frontera, one of the biggest villages in the Serrania de Ronda. Ronda itself is worth a visit either by car (45 minutes) or by an amazing train ride. The surrounding area is perfect for hiking, cycling, horse riding and other adventure sports like canyoning. The nearby cave Cueva de la Pileta with its 20.000 year old paintings is wort
Getting around
Taking your own car is necessary. Public transport is very scarce but we do have a train station close by (4 km from villa). Here you can take a beautiful train ride: one direction to Algeciras (from Algeciras an easy taxi to Tarifa) and the other direction to Ronda and Granada. The train only goes 3 times a day so you need to plan your trip carefully.
