Overview

Rubbing shoulders with Portugal, the Aracena parklands boast long summer seasons, shady groves, and thick woodlands. For travellers seeking secluded romantic cottages, lively market towns, and vibrant cuisine – this part of Andalucía is one of our favourite spots in rural Spain.

This sweet little four-bedroom cottage sleeps 6 and offers an idyllic setting, perched in the folds of the hills but only a stone’s throw from the bustling market town of Aracena.

Stretched out across one floor, with wraparound semi-wild gardens that add to the charm and a natural swimming pool, families and couples can make the most of purely organic and magical surroundings.

The natural pool is one of the highlights, fed via biological filters, the water is fresh and pure and completely chemical free, making it all the more inviting on sweltering summer days.

On the south of the property is a pretty pergola where breakfasts and sunset drinks can be enjoyed beneath the shade.

On the north you will find a small lawned garden area for the children to play, and private woodland dotted with thick oak and chestnut.

Back inside, the pleasant finca is rustic and unpretentious but with nice touches. It is certainly inviting with its terrace doors, generous kitchen with log burner, and plenty of space for the family to spread out.

We do imagine one couple with children is a perfect match for this cottage since the Master bedroom is superior with its ensuite bathroom and larger double bed.

The whitewashed walls, exposed wooden ceilings, and stone walls capture a sense of traditional Spanish charm. The cosy living and dining room open out to the patio and north side terraces, offering a seamless blend of indoor and alfresco space for soaking up the sunshine.

Only a seven-minute drive you will find the wonderfully rustic Aracena with its meandering hills, Moorish castle, and Cave of Wonders. The wholesome surroundings of the Sierra de Aracena Natural Park are also beguiling with their hillside towns, clear water streams, and rich mulberry forests.

YOUR REVIEWS

Hugh | April | 2019

The villa was set amongst glorious woodland. It was completely secluded - and yet only 5 minutes drive from two supermarkets and 10 minutes drive from Aracena - a beautiful town with many restaurants and all facilities. We walked from the villa every day, enjoying the wonderful birdsong and spring flowers. The villa itself was spacious and had everything we needed. It was nice to relax and cool off in the small pool at the end of each day. Carmen, the property owner, met us at the beginning of the holiday at the arranged meeting point and took us to the property - which was down a narrow lane so we were very happy with this arrangement. Carmen spoke very good English and made us very welcome, checking that we were ok on a couple of occasions and telling us about things we might like to do in the area. She was a first class host. Thankyou, Carmen!"

Deanna | September | 2018

This place was quite magical, everything we hoped for and more. This is a fantastic location if you love nature. Carmen was lovely and very helpful. I'd recommend Rustical Travel - they are very well organised, with excellent communication throughout. I hope to book with them again!"

Emma | August | 2018

My family and I had the the wonderful 2 weeks in this property. The natural pool was refreshing with the most splendid views and lovely to escape the August heat. The villa was well equipped had everything for our needs. Carmen was incredibly helpful and advised us with plenty of local information and great suggestions on where to visit. If you want to get away from it all then this is the perfect retreat."

Stephen | April | 2018

We had a wonderful holiday - it was a perfect situation looking out over the cork and chestnut forest, surrounded by birdsong and wild flowers. Carmen very helpful ,a lovely person and made us all feel very at home - so much so that we didnot want to leave. The National Park is very beautiful and if you are interested in walking and bird life - you couldn't wish for a better spot. All in all a wonderful time and thankyou to Rustical Travel for making everything so easy and Carmen for all the laughs we had. regards Steve and Annie"
