The Villa is in the Hamlet of La Higuera, within the National Park of El Torcal, a rock formation once under the sea and was inhabited by dinosaurs, having a free visitor centre and a spectacular wildlife reserve.

The play park with tennis, table tennis, football, basketball and childrens swings, gym and slides, is opposite the villa. Directly from the villa are plenty of various walks and an information site providing details to local history and what wildlife to look out for on each walk. So to from the top of El Torcal, but you will need to drive there, unless you are professionals! It is possible to get to the El Torcal summit directly on foot from the villa. La Joya, is a small town 2km from the villa and has five tapas bars / restaurants, a couple of shops, chemist and bakeries, one of which will deliver fresh bread and pastries daily to you if required.

All bedrooms have air conditioning. Newly installed this year is a new water heating system, so there is plenty of pressurised hot water- yes, in Spain! It is a 200ltr tank, we also have a 1000ltr reserve tank. SO ALL THE WATER PRESSURE ISSUES ARE NOW ADDRESSED! The villa has two pushchairs, high chairs, cots and door gate if needed. For winter guests there is a log burner with logs available from the local shop. There are plenty of shaded areas around the villa, and a pergola near the pool.

In Fuente de Piedra there is the largest flamingo colony in Europe, the Spanish lakes and El Chorro gorge are close by, the coast is a one hour drive. Further afield is Granada, Ronda, Cordoba and Seville. Im sure I will have missed lots out, so please feel free to contact me at anytime. I can arrange the best value car hire, or local taxi`s.

Family from Barnet, United Kingdom · July 2019
We all had a really lovely time at Villa Jacqui. We really liked the simple, modern and uncluttered, decor (and the WiFi!) The pool and garden were beautiful, and not at all overlooked, with plenty of shade and sun. You do need a car but the supermarket 10min away is very well stocked. The views from just outside the villa of the mountains are...

I have been renting property in Spain, mainly on the coast ,since 1997, I now only look after property inland. I bought this villa to live in (eventually!) I love all aspects of rural Spain, though, still go to the coast for day trips. Having owned this villa since the birth of my daughter, (2003) we have encountered all sorts of problems, all of which I am pleased to help with. Be assured of assistance before, during and after your stay. If anything is not clear, please contact me. I hope you give this area a try, once you do, you may never go back to the coast. Thank you, Martyn
