RUSTIC-LUXURY - A PRIVATE COUNTRY HOME IN THE TRANQUIL HILLS OF ANDALUCIA

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Canillas de Aceituno - La Albahaca

4 bedroom, 4 bath with plentiful outdoor lounges, BBQ terrace and private pool

Tune in to the surrounding nature and slow your pace in this idyllic, private country home loaded with character and oozing with class and charm. Set on the pastoral slopes of the Sierra Tejeda mountains with the peak of La Maroma looming high above, this cosy home-away-from-home sits sympathetically in the ancient landscape and connects you with the authentic Spain at any time of year.

Four en suite double bedrooms offer a sound, silent night’s sleep for up to eight guests. Each of the four bedrooms has its own separate entrance and its own adjacent bathroom with two of the bedrooms opening onto the pool terrace from opposite sides. On two levels thanks to the sloping hillside, the house features an upper balcony overlooking the light and spacious living/dining room complete with a fireplace for the chillier months. The dining area connects with the fully stocked kitchen via a service window for character and convenience, while the entrance landing area with a piano connects all of these spaces with the upstairs via a beautiful iron and wood stairway.

Everywhere the décor and finishings convey contemporary rustic luxury; built only about ten years ago but in the traditional style of the Andalucian countryside, the home was designed by its original owner, an architect in the city of Malaga. The design maximises comfort and privacy, and keeps the house cool in summer and warm in winter, though with a fireplace and air conditioning throughout comfort is always in order. The white-wash, the terra-cotta floor and roof tiles, and the antique wooden fittings and fixtures never let you forget you are in an Andalucian country home. However, it is the outdoor spaces that will draw you out and keep you lapping up the sun or enjoying the cool shade as you please.

There is a wide, open lawn to the front of the house with two covered lounge spaces, a covered dining terrace with an open barbecue and a built in bread/pizza oven to the side and then leading upward from there is the sunny, private pool terrace with yet another covered lounge area adjacent. The pool terrace is at least as stylish as the rest of the property, with colourfully landscaped gardens, an outdoor shower and a fountain feature splashing into the pool for the relaxing sound of running water.

The rows of large cypress and pine trees surrounding the property hug it in and give it a feeling of private intimacy, while above and beyond the trees the breath taking landscape of mountains, valleys and hillsides is a constant reminder of the immensity of your surroundings. The peak of La Maroma, at over 2000m looms majestically above at all times. Only minutes from the property, the endless hiking trails and ancient Roman footpaths of the Sierra Tejeda mountains meander past, though the property itself offers space for exploration and walks through the trees.

Further afield, the legacy cities of Granada and Cordoba are within distance for a day trip, and if you’re simply looking for sun and sea, the nearest beach is only 25km away. Slightly further down the coast you’ll find some of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches on the southern coast near Nerja, where you will also find some of the best restaurants east of Malaga. Malaga too is well worth exploring, with numerous world class museums including the Picasso Museum (the artist was born in Malaga).

La Albahaca also offers a variety of services delivered right at or from the property, including a top rate chef service, massage, manicure, pedicure and other spa and beauty treatments, trail guides and also guided visits for wine tasting and local food markets, for starters.

Canillas de Aceituno is a historic white washed village of Moorish origins sitting more than 600m high in the Sierra Tejeda mountains. The first of a string of such villages (making for a scenic driving tour), it's a quaint and friendly village with all basic services and amenities including restaurants, bars, shopping, children's playground and Olympic sized public swimming pool. The villa sits in the countryside outside of this village, surrounded by the peaks and valleys of this breathtaking natural region. Just minutes from your door is the massive Sierra Tejeda nature park reserve and endless hiking through both forested areas and open panoramic mountainsides. You'll feel a million miles away, yet the coast and the beaches are only 25km off and the city of Velez-Malaga with full facilities only about 15km.
