About the property

3 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed large house with terraces and private pool. Wi-fi

Casa Annabella has been restored over the last ten years, it is our home from home. We have tried to maintain the character of the Finca and keep it traditional in style. A large house with three good sized bedrooms, two doubles and one twin.

One large double with en suite and twin bedroom and separate bathroom on the first floor leading out onto a large enclosed terrace with under cover seating area. Views across the olive groves.

The second floor has one double bedroom a large kitchen and living room leading out to the upper terrace and out onto the pool area. The pool is walled and surrounded by olive trees.

There are many places to relax around the house and the terraces are large and private. The pool is 1.4 meters deep throughout and has Roman Steps it is surrounded by a large tiled terrace with sunbeds. It is maintained by our local management team.

Take a walk through the olives on one of the many tracks around the hillside. Visit the local village of Fuentes De Cesna and enjoy Tapas or walk down to the old village and enjoy the stunning views of the lake. Please note that there are no views of the lake from the house!

Iznajar is a 20 minute drive away a beautiful white village siiting on the edge of the lake. There is a beach and watersports here with a beach bar and restaurant. Many typical Spanish bars and restaurants if you want to enjoy a day or evening out. A beautiful restored church sits at the top of the hill and there is a really quaint Blue bar next to the churchyard which is a must to visit.

Algarinejo is also a 20 minute drive away, another typical Spanish village where you can enjoy Tapas with every drink! Really friendly people, market day on a Saturday and a well stocked Supermarket.

The house is large and has many seating areas so even with 6 people sharing there is plenty of room.

The mountain roads up to the property are very good and there is a short track which then leads to the house. There is no problem with access. There is plenty of parking space and a carport and the house is not overlooked in any way.

In the months of July and August the large communal pool in the village is the place to be, food is available all day and evening.

There is a beautiful courtyard downstairs which has a covered area overlooking the Olive Groves.

The kitchen is traditional Andalucian style and is basic but functional.

It has a large calor gas cooker with oven, fridge freezer, toaster and is equipped for six.

The living room has comfortable sofas a dining table and TV with DVD player. The WiFi is unlimited.

About Andy & Anne Cousins

We live in Brixham, Devon, UK.

Andy & Anne Cousins purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Andy & Anne Cousins chose Algarinejo

We wanted a place to get away from it all and this house does exactly that! Although there are plenty of places to visit around and about we nearly always stay around the house and enjoy the peace and quiet.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love the "Real Spain" feel. The local villages are friendly and you still get free tapas with every drink!

Beautiful, homely finca.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, homely finca with lots of indoor and outdoor space. Bedrooms downstairs were cool without needing fans or air con. Well equipped property and we had everything we needed. Lovely views. Good size pool which was well used - very private and clean. Terry and Ann looked after us well and were really helpful. Recommended.

Better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the 1st 2 weeks of July & enjoyed every minute of our stay in this wonderful out-of-the-way finca. It had everything we could have wanted, with a larger than expected kitchen, cosy and comfortable rooms/bedrooms, a great cooker and a fantastic pool - our mot difficult decision was which sunspot we should choose during the day! A perfect site for getting away from it all, but within a short drive away from wonderful picturesque towns & villages and the larger cities like Malaga, Cordoba & Granada. Montefrio, Iznajar & Priego de Cordoba also well worth a visit! A special word of thanks to Terry & Ann, who were always at hand & even remembered my birthday!

Amazing stay in lovely old traditional farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this lovely farmhouse. The house itself had everything we needed - the pool was a real treat (we had great weather every day so brill to be able to cool off in pool). There were lovely sitting areas for relaxing outside too. As for the location, it was a great base for visiting the surrounding villages. We particularly liked priego de Córdoba, montefrio and iznajar. I would recommend a visit to the lake at iznajar (we hired kayaks there). We also ate out at some very nice restaurants in algarinejo. All in all a great holiday and I would really recommend this farmhouse!

Off the beaten track heaven

  • 5 of 5

Super villa that is well equipped.Stunning views and situated off the beaten track. Lovely owners and caretakers who make sure you have all you need for a relaxing stay. Cooling off beside the pool or enjoying a quiet drink in one of the many seating areas was heaven.. Thank you.

Just returned from a lovely holiday in one of the quietest spots I've had the good fortune to visit.

  • 5 of 5

A charming and sensitively restored farm-house set amongst the olive groves. Really enjoyed the pool and having several different spaces in which to sit worked very well as we were a mixed party stretching three generations. Terry and Anne who live down the track went out of their way to be extremely helpful and kind. Thank you.

Lovely - all we wanted in an Andalucian holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully situated in the olive groves, with a view to - more olives. Quiet except for the occasionally passing farm vehicles and the people on the neighbouring farms. There were barking dogs on some of the neighbouring farms, but too far away for the noise to bother us. Several private terraces, and a great pool. Makes all the difference on a hot summerday. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We really appreciated the well assorted start package of groceries. It was nice, as we arrived late. The caretakers Ann and Terry were very attentive. Because of a local drought we were unfortunately without water for two periods of 36 hours. We managed with large water bottles pre-filled by the caretakers - should the situation occur. It did!, but this did not spoil our holiday. We would not hesitate coming back.

Casa Annabella is a rural Finca ideal for a get away from it all holiday. The village of Fuentes de Cesna is a 10 minute drive away, this is a typical Spanish village with several bars, a bakery and grocery shops. The small towns of Algarinejo and Iznajar are a 20 minute drive away, here there are banks with cash machines, many bars and restaurants and shops and a small supermarket. There are many places to visit within a 50 km radius. Granada with its beautiful Alhambra Palace is an hour or so drive. Surrounded by beautiful countryside Casa Annabella is the perfect base for exploring real Andalucia. Visit Ronda, Antequera, Cordoba, Monte Frio, Priego de Cordoba to name just a few or relax and unwind around the fabulous pool amongst the olives.

When the sun goes down relax with a glass of wine and watch the stars and the fabulous Milky Way!

The Finca is set amongst the olives and is quiet but not miles from anywhere. The local village and small towns are easily accessible. The mountain roads are well maintained and easy to drive on. There are local markets weekly where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruit and the towns of Archidona and Rute have large supermarkets if you want to stock up for your time at the house. Many of the local towns and villages have Fiestas during the year.

The village of Fuentes De Cesna has a pool complex with bar and changing facilities which is open July and August, you can stay for the day and enjoy drinks and tapas at very reasonable prices. the people are really friendly.

The house is situated amongst the olive groves and there are several working farms around so you may see the occasional tractor trundling by or the farmers pruning and tending to the Olive trees.
