  • El Sueño translates as “the dream”. True to its name the property offers a tranquil natural paradise, abundant with scented flower gardens and shady trees
  • Set amidst a protected Natural Park, yet close to towns and villages; here you can find a slice of Spain that is well away from the tourist trail
  • Simple, Moorish and traditional-style properties with plenty of home comforts; think squishy sofas, well equipped kitchens, light and airy beamed rooms and private garden space
  • Plenty of outdoor space; gardens, a playground and swimming pools all have a space in the large tree-lined grounds

  You should know...

  • A car is essential to explore the local area
  • The four Casitas share a pool; although you are often likely to have the pool to yourself, if you want full poolside seclusion you are best off booking the Cortijo.

The Details...

A natural, ecological small estate, El Sueño works hard to take care of the land and wildlife surrounding it - and of you. Set amongst pretty, scented herb gardens and zingy orange and lemon trees, El Sueño is a natural paradise where you can enjoy the tranquillity of the surrounding gardens and countryside.

Delight your senses with a wander through the herb gardens, walk amongst the citrus trees and find a quiet spot to lay back in the shade. There is a gated swimming pool for cooling swims and children will be in their element once they discover the play area. With large areas of the ground left untouched for the use of small animals, birds and other wildlife, nature enthusiasts and bird lovers could be able to spot a vast array of critters.

If you choose to stay in the Moorish farmhouse “Cortijo del Sueño” (the “house of dreams”) you will be blessed with your own private pool looking out over the water meadows and surrounded by trees. Expect spacious, white-washed rooms with exposed wood beamed ceilings, pretty wooden shuttered windows and comfy furniture.

Staying in any of the four Casitas you can expect much of the same quality; Moorish influenced properties; traditional beams and shutters, light airy rooms and simple decor with plenty of the comfort factor. Wood burning stoves and shady private terraces and garden spaces, where relaxation is key.

The bottom half of the finca is gradually being turned into a natural wetland around a small lake; it is already a haven for birds and small animals, so you can have some fun species spotting before a dip in the pool. If you fancy a trip in the car the coast is just a short ride away; in the coastal area you will be greeted with endless soft sand beaches, which are often quiet enough for a snooze to the sound of the lapping waves. Three kilometres away lies the stunning mountaintop town of Vejer de la Frontera; expect Moorish sugar cube houses clustered on the hillside, cobbled streets opening out to reveal astounding panoramas (on a clear day you can see the coast of morocco from here) and a food haven with pretty cafe bars and restaurants from which you can sit and watch a little of the “real Spain” go by.
