One-Off Feature

An Andalucian idyll in the heart of the soaring Serrania de Ronda mountains, Alcantarilla is a villa in Andalucia which offers space, style and peace of mind. A converted Spanish farmhouse that has served the rolling smallholding for centuries, it now combines comfort with history. The luxury 7 bedroom farmhouse has been renovated to the highest standards and is spacious and comfortable

General Info

Preserving all of its original features - from the pantile roofs and doors to the ancient Moorish aquaduct that still functions to this day - there is very much a sense that you are treading on hallowed land. And indeed you are, for this winding valley was once populated by the Romans and later became the frontier between Arabic and Christian Europe, with fortresses lining its river and a famous battle taking place in the 15th century near the house. Only ten minutes from Ronda in a quiet, sleepy corner of the beautiful Llano de la Cruz valley there are stunning views towards distant shimmering mountains and 5 acres of terraced fields, orchards and formal gardens to explore. Encircled by two streams (the Guadalcobacin reaching sea at Sotogrande), the farm is verdant throughout the year and the sound of water is ever present.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Ronda boasts Andalucia's best collection of restaurants and is also home to one of the best-preserved ancient Arabic cores in the world, with a warren of tiny passageways leading to former Moorish palaces and private homes. On top of that is the much fabled tajo, or gorge. Ronda has a good selection of shops and entertainment in the form of theatre, flamenco and, even opera. Also nearby are the fascinating white-walled mountain towns of Setenil de las Bodegas and Grazalema. Further afield - each around an-hour-and-a-half by car - are the majestic Imperial cities of Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Jerez and Malaga. Walks go straight from the door, with half a dozen itineraries already mapped out for guests, while some of Spain's best hikes through the Sierra de las Nieves and Grazalema national parks begin less than half an hour away by car. Mountain bikes can be hired and other local entertainment includes ballooning, quad-biking and riding.

Exterior Details
Encircled by a river and veined by a stream, the five acre property was originally a walnut and apple farm. Now it is filled with a more extensive range of fruit and nut trees, as well as an organic vegetable plot and a mature garden planted with roses, lavender, iris, herbs and lawns. An 11 metre gated swimming pool with spectacular views of Ronda and the Grazalema mountains is encircled by grass and shaded by pergolas. A mini kitchen allows for light lunches by the pool .There are wooden sun beds,sofas and dining tables for a full days relaxation. A badminton net and toddler play park can be found nearby.  By the house, table tennis on the lawn below the wisteria-clad dining veranda keep children entertained should a meal take a more leisurely pace than they prefer. Sofas, hammocks and chill out cushions can be found on the cobbled terrace and in the Andalusian courtyard, where a fountain cools the air. A bbq and separate dining terrace under vine is a just step away from the indoor pool table. The terraces down to the stream are ideal for kicking a football or alternatively reading in a hanging chair under the shade of a tree. Discover the Moorish aqueduct at the end of the allotment and fill your basket on the way.

Further Details
