Set amidst rolling hills with olive groves, almond trees and pine forests to the front and mountains to the back, this lovely old bakery on a 100 year old farm has been restored and is now a beautiful three bedroom holiday rental with swimming pool which has charm, character and authenticity in spades.
Beautifully restored but filled throughout with exposed stone walls, rustic wooden beams, antique furniture and original paintings, Cortijo la Serena is a 100 year old Hispano Moorish farm where up to 6 people can relax in peaceful picturesque surroundings. Inside it is cosy and traditional with plentiful evidence of the owner’s love for world travels. Outside there is a gorgeous infinity pool with stunning views over the countryside. And nearby there are walking trails, beaches, golf courses and historic towns. It’s a delightful base from which to explore sunny Andalucia.
Artists and photographers will be in heaven here, as will wildlife lovers, bird watchers and ramblers. The white villages of Andalucia are a must-see as are the lakes in Isnajar and El Chorro and the historic town of Antequera with its churches, monasteries and Moorish fortress. Or you could play a round at Antequera golf course and visit the beaches and shops of Malaga. Maps, books and information are available at the house. The white villages of Villanueva del Rosario and Villanueva del Trabuco are 10 min. away and have a good range of shops, a Dia (superette) and all other amenities, a good choice of restaurants as well they have both a 24h/7 emergency clinic. Archidona, a historical town is 15 min. away and has a supermarket, all amenities and a good selection of restaurants to fit all pockets.
