Just 1 kilometre (or 10 minutes stroll) from the villa is the charming whitewashed village of Humilladero, where you can enjoy the traditional cooking of Andalucia in its tapas bars and restaurants (tapas are still free with your drink here!). The beautiful and historic town of Antequera is only 20 minutes drive. You have so many sightseeing opportunities, from the Laguna of Fuente de Piedra with its famous colony of pink flamingos to the amazing limestone landscapes of the Torcal National Park and the stunning blue lakes of Andalucia's very own Lake District. The historic treasures of Granada, Ronda, Seville and Cordoba are at the top of many guests' must-see lists, while the beaches of the Costa del Sol are just under an hour's drive!.
The 6 bedrooms are spacious and beautiful, decorated in tones of blue and gold. There are 3 lovely double bedrooms, 2 large twin bedrooms and one single. One of the double bedrooms is downstairs. We also have 2 wooden cots and 2 good-quality double sofabeds (one in the playroom and one in a twin room upstairs) which are ideal for extra children or teenagers, so the house will sleep up to 15 guests comfortably! NEW for summer 2019 - air-conditioning in the double and twin bedrooms!
The 3 bathrooms are spacious & beautifully tiled with craftsman-made cabinetry and marble surrounds.
The main kitchen has oak cupboards with granite worktops and has a breakfast area. Ceramic hob, oven, fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster, dishwasher and Dolce Gusto espresso machine. There is plenty of cooking equipment to create delicious meals with the fresh local produce! The adjacent second kitchen has a restaurant-quality stainless steel range cooker, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer.
The magnificent beamed sitting/dining room, decorated in tones of terracotta and gold, is where many of our guests choose to celebrate special family occasions! Large comfortable sofas and locally-made traditional Andalucian country furniture create a welcoming atmosphere.
Casa La Sierrecilla is one of the most child-friendly villas around! Baby equipment includes baby bath, hand blender, children's cups, plates and cutlery, electric bottle warmer, baby monitor, 3 toddler bed guards, Avent microwave steriliser and potties! There are two cots, two high chairs and stairgates. The comfortable playroom gives children their own space in which to play with the toys, watch one of the huge collection of children's DVDs or just relax after a fantastic day splashing in the pool!
The one acre, fully enclosed garden is a wonderful place for children to explore, with an orchard of olive, walnut, almond, pomegranate and fig trees in the front, lawns to the rear and a Little Tikes playhouse for the little ones!
At Casa La Sierrecilla you will revel in the outdoor lifestyle typical of Andalucia. The poolside bar has a fridge to keep drinks cold, and there is a lovely shaded dining area next to the pool terrace. Ample sunbathing terraces (paved with non-slip tiles!) and lawns surround the private pool.
The pool dimensions are 8m x 5m and from 1m deep in the shallow end to 2m in the deep end. Pool heating is included in the rental. We maintain the temperature at a level that is comfortable for swimming but still refreshing in the summer heat! The gates to the pool can be locked for the safety of young children.
At the rear of the house there is a very large verandah with tables and chairs for dining and relaxing on warm summer nights.
