Romantic stone farm cottage with its own pool set in a peaceful rural location 3km from the beautiful village of Casares in Andalucia. Just a short drive to the beaches and towns of the Mediterranean coast, yet gloriously secluded on a 12 acre farm estate with lush forests of cork, oak, scented pines and chestnuts.
You can walk straight out of the front gate into the National Park where you might glimpse deer, boar, or ibex and where the birdwatching is simply superb. All around you the scenery is spectacular, with sea views to Gibraltar and Morocco from some parts of the estate. To say that Casares is beautiful is an understatement. One of many very beautiful white villages in this area, but this one has something extra special about it! The village is just 9 miles from the coast, yet has somehow succeeded in avoiding the coach tour circuit. Casares is home to several colourful fiestas each year and the Plaza de Espana is the beating heart of the village. The story goes that the village was constructed on the orders of Julius Caesar who constructed a magnificent villa here.
There are great walks straight out the front gate. The beautiful "white village" of Casares just a 3km drive away down a mountain track has many restaurants and shops. The legendary towns of Ronda, Granada and Seville can all be reached as a day trip, by scenic train if you wish. Casares is also ideally situated as the starting point for exploring the other picturesque "white villages" of the Serrania de Ronda and its breathtaking landscapes. Beaches and golf courses are a 25 minute drive as are the supermarkets of Sabinillas. This area is also a birdwatcher’s paradise.
Nearest airports are Gibraltar (45 mins), Malaga (90 mins) and Jerez (120 mins). There are multiple airlines which fly into these airports. Although Gibraltar is the closest, Malaga is far more competitive pricewise, and much easier for hire cars etc. Nearest train station is Gaucin (50km) and ferry is Algeciras (80km). A car is recommended.

Once a farm cottage, Casa Luc has been beautifully restored and has retained many original features including a stained glass window and a beamed ceiling. It’s been designed as a stylish and romantic retreat for couples. The living / sleeping suite is open plan, with a king size double bed and handsome furnishings. There’s a well equipped, compact kitchen and a vibrantly coloured bathroom with handpainted Andalucian tiles. The cottage has wifi throughout, TV / Video, a music centre, and basic equipment such as iron, ironing board and a barbecue. Laundry facilities are available.
There is a flower festooned private patio with stunning mountain views. There are teak sunloungers around a decked pool, and table and chairs on the terrace outside the cottage.
Casares simply oozes charm. There is a wealth of history here, reflected by the numerous monuments and churches, and even prehistoric remains. The natural beauty of the area is protected, including the Sierra Bermeja and the Sierra Crestallina. There’s a huge range of birdlife, from the exotic tawny vulture to the migratory falcon, and equestrian and hiking opportunities abound!
