Used as a film set by Belgian TV in November 2005, this cosy cottage is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, commanding breathtaking views from all angles; over the entire lake of Zahara and the surrounding mountains. Situated on the edge of the Grazalema Park, nature lovers will appreciate the abundance of wildlife here, providing birdwatchers with the unique opportunity to see Griffon vultures and many different birds of prey soaring overhead. Whilst the location is secluded, it is not isolated, being the perfect place to unwind and relax. The owner, Mary, also lives on the finca in her own house and, whilst respecting her guests’ privacy, she will be pleased to help with any information or advice. It is just 5 kms from the charming village of El Gastor, one of the famous “pueblos blancos” or white villages of Cadiz, and close to picturesque villages such as Zahara de la Sierra and Grazalema, or larger towns such as Ronda and Jerez.

About Mary Stevens
Trained as a bi-lingual Secretary, I have lived and worked in Spain for 38 years. My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful area 18 years ago when we used to come on walking trips from the Costa del Sol. We bought an old farmhouse which we restored and now offer as a holiday home for travellers seeking a relaxing retreat.
