The apartment has a separate bedroom with a choice of a (super) king-size bed (180×190) or 2 single beds (90×190); a large en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower; open plan kitchen & living room with wood burner; and private terrace with barbecue. Both the lounge and bedroom areas have ceiling fans; and the lounge area has a wood-burning stove, ideal for the winter months. Situated below the main house, the apartment has private access & parking. The apartment is new, modern and spacious, with stunning sunset views and views over the pool from the terrace. Guests often just sit and relax by the pool or on the terrace, enjoying the tranquillity and views. The pool is a real treat, available all year! It is big enough for a ´proper´ swim, as well as having wide Roman steps on which to relax. The area down to the apartment and pool is paved with natural stone, and there is a large stone-paved area next to the pool with a sunshade and pool loungers. The natural environment is beautiful, with mountains, bird life, clear skies, and plenty of opportunity for walking, cycling, climbing, bird-watching, paragliding and stargazing. We regularly have kestrels, griffon vultures and Bonelli´s and booted eagles flying overhead - and we see paragliders flying with the vultures most afternoons. We often hear nightingales and tawny and little owls at night. Our night skies are fantastic! And our sunsets, particularly during the winter months, are spectacular! Please note that because of our rural location, we have limited WiFi, which we access via satellite. The WiFi is suitable for checking emails and browsing, but not for downloading or uploading videos, and not for streaming movies, music or tv.

Interaction with guests
We live on the property: our house is above the apartment. We will meet you on your arrival to check you in and explain how everything works. We are also available to provide help, recommendations about the local area and insights into special places you can visit. However, we´re also conscious that some people wish to escape while on holiday, so the level of interaction with us will vary, as this will be determined by our guests.

About the neighbourhood
Algodonales, our local village which is 5 km away, is known as the ´Puerta de la Sierra´, or ´gateway to the mountains´. The village nestles under the rocky crags of the Sierra de Lijar mountain; there are several other pretty white hillside towns within 25 km to explore. The Via Verde de la Sierra can be accessed 15 km from the property, as can the local dam, the Presa de la Zahara. Further afield, Ronda is 35 km from Algodonales, and Jerez, Cadiz, Seville, Malaga and a range of picturesque Mediterranean beaches are all accessible for day trips. Algodonales is located on the edge of the Sierra de Grazalema natural park, so the area is a nature lover´s paradise, with plenty of opportunity for walking, climbing, paragliding and cycling.
Getting around
Because the property is in a rural location, guests ideally need a car to be able to fully explore the area. We are a 5 minute drive from Algodonales, or a 45-60 minute walk (it´s 4.5 km to the town centre, on quiet country roads and tracks), where there is public transport available (buses and taxis). Bicycles can be hired in town, or at any of the main access points to the Via Verde.
