About Lolita & Colin
Lolita and Colin are a Brazilian/British couple who live in Cardiff and take frequent trips to Las Jaras. We go to Las Jaras 3-4 times a year and enjoy being there on all seasons, Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn. Lolita enjoys staying around the house on her own or in the company of family and friends, whilst Colin can be found most often roaming the hills. For both of us it is a fantastic getaway, relaxant and tonic and we hope it will be for you too – all our guests love it at Las Jaras and they all enjoy it in their own way.
Lolita & Colin purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Lolita & Colin chose Casares
The house is very comfortable and well equipped and has a spacious feel to it. Guests say they feel very much at home. It is close to both mountains and beaches. From the terraces and balconies you can have your meals looking at beautiful views of Gibraltar and the mountains of North Africa. It is wonderfully quiet and secluded, even though there are neighbours only a couple of minutes away. The private heated swimming pool is set in the lovely garden, maintained by our wonderful gardener, Jorge. There is a range of excellent restaurants nearby – though if you want to stay at home and not cook, and get a taste of real Spanish food, you can always order Dominga’s paella.
What makes this Villa unique
We chose this location because of all the different possibilities, that satisfy the varied desires of our extended family who stay at Las Jaras. Whatever you want to do, you can do it at and from Las Jaras. It is a very peaceful location for lounging by the pool or on one of the many terraces. It is 20 minutes from a range of lovely and safe beaches and 10 minutes from the nearest golf course. There is a wide range of walking available, from gentle strolls from the house through to wild mountains to ascend. For the naturalists there are many birds, most notably the eagles and other birds as well as a wide range of beautiful flowers in spring. With all the 'White Villages', Ronda, Cadiz, Jerez and Seville, and even Stone Age cave paintings, we believe Las Jaras can satisfy all tastes.

Excellent as always

Luxurious house and beautiful setting.
Comfortable and well-appointed house.
Enjoyed the book and CD collection. Not recommended for anyone not able to navigate stairs as there is no bedroom on the main floor.
Idyllic country retreat within easy reach of the sea
This was our 4th stay and we have booked again for next year so that says it all really. The house is well equipped and home from home. Stunning views, lovely garden with several seating areas and a covered terrace, two balconies with table and chairs and a heated pool. We were swimming in October. About 15-20 minutes drive to beautiful beaches. Plenty of excellent restaurants within easy reach.
Spacious well equipped villa with a great pool
The villa is positioned in the hills with a great view and quiet location with easy access to the coast and resorts. The local village is a few minutes drive away or via a picturesque long walk through the hills, one of many marked out walking routes. The towns on the coast have beaches, supermarkets and street markets. The house is spacious with lots of seating including two indoor and two outdoor eating areas and a large terrace in the shade. The bedrooms are downstairs which means the bedrooms are cooler in the hot weather. The pool is a decent size considering it is a private pool and was nice and warm. The driveway to the villa is steep so I'd recommend an automatic car as this made it a lot easier.
Sandy beaches are within 15-20 minutes driving in Estepona, La Duquesa, Sabinillas and Sotogrande. Choice of many Restaurants and Tapas Bars with many golf courses along the coast and inland.
One hour away from both Malaga or Gibraltar Airports.
Car hire is highly recommended.
By car: Gaucin is 30 minutes away by car; Ronda 1h, Seville 2.5h, Granada 2.5h, Estepona 20 minutes, Gibraltar 45 minutes
Supermarkets located in Estepona about 20 minutes drive. Tapas Bars, Restaurants, Banks and local stores in Casares, 10 minutes drive, several excellent local restaurants 5 to 10 minutes drive.
