Peaceful, picturesque and wonderfully ‘off grid’, Casa Athene is a hand-built house with a beautiful garden, private plunge pool and stunning views, which offers the perfect base for nature lovers, sun seekers or anyone who just wants to get away from it all.
Set within the rugged Andalusian countryside between the ancient town of Vejer de la Frontera and the wild Atlantic coastline, Casa Athene has been lovingly built and furnished by naturalist Stephen Knapp and it now provides a gorgeous little eco retreat for up to six people. The house itself has everything you could need for a comfortable and relaxing stay, and an integrated solar power system provides power for all lighting and appliances. Outside there are wild gardens, various patios and a plunge pool with a serious view. And all around you there are traditional hill towns, unspoilt beaches and numerous markets and restaurants awaiting discovery. This is the ideal spot if you want to be off the beaten track but not isolated.
Casa Athene is situated on a small hill just outside the village of La Muela and in the local area you will find an array of colourful markets, lively bars and restaurants serving seasonal produce. The ancient hilltop town of Vejer de la Frontera is not to be missed, nor are the beaches and shops of coastal Conil de la Frontera. Or you could visit Cadiz, Europe’s oldest city, and the port of Tarifa, from where you can go whale watching or take a day trip to the souks of Tangier. This whole area is rich in culture, food, wine and festivals so it’s a fantastic holiday destination.
Jerez and Gibraltar airports are both an hour’s drive away.

Outside you will find beautiful gardens, sunny terraces and a plunge pool with a panoramic view. Bird watchers and keen environmentalists will be in heaven.
