A glorious 100 year old stone cottage for two set on a 12 acre farm estate surrounded by lush forests of cork, oak and wildflower meadows.

From parts of the estate there are amazing views over the Straits of Gibraltar to North Africa and walks in stunning mountain scenery straight out the front gate. So whether you'd just like to laze in peace by the pool enjoying the scents of jasmine and heather while watching eagles gliding on thermals overhead or explore the spectacular mountains or famous sights of Andalucia this enchanting casita offers the perfect base.
There are great walks straight out the front gate where you may glimpse a deer or an ibex, a fox, a wild boar, and a huge variety of birdlife. 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.
