Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Gaucin - Las Aguilas
Private pool, free wi-fi, sleeps 2-6 adults plus up to 3 children under 5.
Watch the moon rising over Sierra Crestellina or the sun setting with a cool drink!
Located in the Sierra Crestellina Natural Park between the hilltop 'pueblo blancas' of Gaucin and Casares, the villa commands stunning views across the beautiful Rio Genal valley to the mountains of the Sierra Grazalema National Park, Los Alcornocales National Park, and the Serrania de Ronda.
The private pool has wonderful views - with sun loungers, hammocks, table, a pool changing room with WC and wash hand basin, and an outdoor shower. It has an extensive paved terrace, shady pergola and a small lawn. We also supply a full range of melamine crockery, glasses and cutlery for use down by the pool.
The house is fully equipped for cooking and BBQ and enjoying the outdoor life in summer. With central heating and a log fire it's comfortable all year round, even in our short Spanish winter.
The kitchen is a cook's dream - we supply everything you need for meals outside on one of our many dining terraces or at our antique dining table seating 12. If you don't want to cook we can arrange catering at the house and concierge services from our on-site caretakers (at extra cost).
Free wi-fi broadband (currently 4 megs). All reception rooms and the master bedroom have a sound system so you can play your favourite music or listen to the radio.
The accommodation is flexible - perfect for a family vacation or for a romantic holiday. Many of our guests have celebrated special occasions here - and wonderful family reunions.
The 2-bedroom house sleeps a maximum of 4 adults and two children under 5 sharing their parents' bedrooms. But if you have a larger party there is a third en-suite bedroom. The 3-bedroom version of the house sleeps a maximum of 6 adults and 3 children under 5 sharing bedrooms with adults.
We also supply travel cots, high chair, baby bath, audio baby alarm, potty, microwave steriliser, electric safety plug guards and stair gate. Plastic plates, bowls and cups are also supplied. No charge for any of these - simply request when you book.
Whether you rent the 2 or 3 bedroom house, all the facilities are the same - the third bedroom will simply be locked. You will always have exclusive use of the house, grounds and pool and the stunning scenery of the Natural Park.
All beds are super-king size and can be made up as single beds if you require this. Just let us know. All bedrooms have en-suite facilities and there is a guest cloakroom on the ground floor.
With the Sierra Crestellina mountain as its backdrop, Finca Las Aguilas is set in six acres (2.5 hectares) of landscaped and wild gardens and is a birdwatchers' paradise. There are many excellent walking trails close to the villa - and the sky at night is stunning. In spring the wild flowers are beautiful.
Although private and peaceful, the villa is ideally situated to provide easy access to Blue Flag Mediterranean beaches 15 minutes' drive away, excellent restaurants, shops and superb golf courses (Valderrama, Sotogrande, etc) along the coast. There is an award-winning goats cheese factory (queseria), a bakery (panaderia), and a bar/restaurant just over a mile away.
Supermarkets, retail parks, banks etc and all the essentials of the Costa del Sol are within easy driving distance. The wonderful cities of Seville, Cordoba, Jerez, Tarifa, Grenada and Malaga are all less than 3 hours away - and Morocco is a 30-min ferry crossing from Tarifa.
Our prices include absolutely everything (except cooking and concierge services - available on request).
We provide weekly house cleaning and towel/linen change, fresh white laundered Egyptian cotton bedlinen, bath, hand, kitchen and pool towels; table and kitchen linen; all utilities, free wi-fi broadband internet access, UK satellite TV (family and sports package), free-to-view Spanish TV; ceiling fans in all rooms, two air-cooling units; pool cleaning, hair driers and adult bath robes (so no need to pack these), the use of our library of books, DVDs, CDs and family board games, picnic ware and cool boxes. The house is made for entertaining with indoor and outdoor dining areas and plenty of cutlery, crockery and glassware.
The on-site caretakers (or sometimes the owners when they are in Spain) live in the attached casita (cottage), separated from the main house by a study/store room. They are an invaluable source of local knowledge and are on hand to help in any way.
The casita does not overlook the main house at all and has its own separate access, car park and small garden. Visitors have the sole use of the rest of the grounds (6 acres - 2.5 hectares) and pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Is the sun of southern Spain,
Is this marvellous house where light and shadows
Play night and day on terraces.
Is the landscape seen from every window, the calm, the peace, the birds in the garden, the vultures circling in the sky.
Is the sound of the water when the sun falls behind the mountains, the sounds of the night, the fragrance of the fig tree.
Are the colours, the white dots of villages lost in the greens, browns and greys, the sky so clear and blue in the day, so dark and full of stars at night.
Is nature which sometimes becomes furious with the blowing and roaring Levante.
Were the visits we made in the warmth of the countryside.
Was the grace of horses and equestrians at the Royal School in Jerez.
Is the welcome coolness of the pool and the night to recover.
Is the very good time spent by the whole family, the games in the pool, the perfect house where we found everything to simply enjoy life.
Are Liz and Gerry who warmly welcomed us in their so tactful way to pay attention to our rest and comfort.
Thank you so much.
(stayed 27 July to 10th August 2013)
