If it’s a Spanish rural retreat with a rustic charm that you’re looking for then go no further than Casa Belmonte. As a 100 year old Spanish Farmhouse it is a perfect setting for a relaxed, secluded break in Andalucía. Elevated in the hills, you’re torn between the views of the rugged Sierra de Tejeda Mountains, the serene Lake Vinuela and the deep blue luxury of the Mediterranean Sea.
Completely in-tune with its setting Casa Belmonte enchants you to be at one with nature. You can take a dip in the saltwater pool, relax on the beautiful sun terrace, wander through the scented gardens or help yourself to the fresh produce in your own organic vegetable plot. You can even start the day by gathering your own free range eggs.
The house itself is the perfect balance of authentic rustic Spain and modern luxury. With room for 12, it is spacious and light yet authentically rural. The huge living areas and 3 bathrooms provide ample room, whilst the beamed high ceilings and whitewashed stone walls keep the property surprisingly cool in summer.
The large outside terrace and barbeque areas are perfect for al fresco dining and if you’re after fun and games there is entertainment from table tennis to pool. For those looking for a more peaceful evening you are in a star gazers paradise. With no glaring street lights you can take to the rooftop terrace or take a midnight soak in the pool to get truly star struck; the views are second to none.
If you can tear yourself away, the surrounding areas are equally enticing. Two nearby villages ooze Moorish charm with local markets and fresh produce at your fingertips, just half hour further afield you can discover the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean coastline; and within an hour you can be in the historic cities of Malaga or Grenada. Where ever you visit each will reveal its own beguiling part of true Spanish life.
