Outdoors - The large swimming pool (6m x 3m) depth 2.2m at one end and 1.8m at the other, has a terrace with stunning mountain and valley views - watch the mountains change in colour and intensity throughout the day. There are sun loungers and outside terrace furniture and table-tennis is also available.
The gardens and terraces surrounding the villa are maintained but the lower orchard is deliberately kept informal to encourage nature to take its course. The bottom of the property is not fenced so if you are feeling energetic you can don jeans and trainers and meander all the way down to the barranco (small river/gully) at the bottom. Or take a picnic down to the
lower slopes and sit under an old olive tree. On a warm summer night you can swim and stargaze - truly awesome.
The villa and gardens are at an altitude of approx. 800m above sea level
which, during the heat of the summer, provides a gentle breeze to cool the
air, but beware of the intensity of the sun. On a clear day you can just see a wedge of sea in the distance between the mountains. We have an area of about one hectare, which is totally private and unspoilt. Higher up the mountain at approximately 1,300m above sea level, the three stunning Alupujarran villages of Pampaneira (which bustles with craft shops and restaurants) Bubion and, at the top of the Poqueira Valley, Capileira.
A car is essential and a choice of car hire firms operate from Malaga airport at very reasonable rates.
Please note - smoking is not permitted in the villa.
