Get away from it all in this secluded, private corner of the real Spain: a 25 minute drive brings you to the local town and all its amenities, 50 minutes to the attractions of the Costa del Sol and it is less than an hour to Malaga Airport.

Primarily for those who like to be in the countryside, it is perfect for those who enjoy walking, rock climbing, painting, photographers, getting an all over suntan, yoga, rambling, and bird watching.

Roof Terrace

The amazing Roof Terrace with it's 270 degree panoramic view: from The Mediterranean Sea glinting in the sun to the south, the distant mountains of the Sierra de las Nieves in the west, to the tempting glimpse of El Chorro to the north, it really doesn't get any better. Here you can feel the full impact of the stunning view - by day or night

The huge terrace  at the front of the house (10 m x 3.5 m) is the perfect spot if you simply haven't the energy to carry your tray of drinks and tapas any further.  You came here to rest and recharge the batteries, so do it!

The Olive Tree Patio - a half way point between the house terrace and the pool surrounds.  An ideal spot for breakfast with dappled sunlight in case you can't decide whether you want sun or shade.

*       The BBQ and Bar area. Making sure the chef is nearby, this shaded area is perfect for an evening's BBQ. Use the bar stools to sit up at the bar (and keep an eye on the chef!) or relax at the table in comfortable chairs for more conventional seating.


The Cartama room's sitting area: a shaded pergola with more chairs and a table.  This favourite spot comes into its own when the mountain breeze is a little more than you want - this spot is sheltered from the prevailing winds and so, even with minimum sun (winter time) the temperatures still can get into the mid- 20's.

And on the other side of the house is the Alora room's sitting area.  This photo is in the sun, but this area is often a nicely shaded spot to hide in during the summer time when temperatures are soaring
