Villa overview - owner's description

A typical Spanish Andalucian self catering rural bungalow nestled in a cork oak forest, amidst terraces of fruit trees sitting on the edge of an ancient threshing circle with views of the mountains rising to 4000ft and overlooking the Almachal river and its valley. Abundant with wildlife, these hidden evergreen valleys will reveal numerous surprises as you wander along the multitude of woodland paths and tracks in this microclimate of the Serrania de Ronda. We are just 45 minutes from Estepona on the Costa del Sol. Close to the African coast, travel through breathtaking mountain scenery, and we are only 10 minutes from the beautiful mountain village of Genalguacil with its streets adorned with art and sculptures.Aldea de la higuera (village of the fig tree) is our little hideaway in Spain where we have found peace and tranquillity. Its the perfect place to relax, chill and do absolutely nothing, that is until you wish to do something then there are so many tracks and byways of the hidden green valleys and streams to be explored. There are numerous place to relax, and because our grounds are private and enclosed you will never be disturbed.Although we do have specific relaxation areas which we have created for your comfort… The first is the threshing circle, which can be found right outside the front of the Villa, we have a shady pergola, sun loungers and BBQ area for them perfect summer evenings when you want to eat outside. Our second relaxation area is by the poolside. Our infinity pool is new for 2011 and is complete with sun loungers, a pool shower. We have built a shady pergola for those really hot summer days.You can enjoy our private pool on site, 10mts x 5 mts and 1.8 deep, big enough for serious swimmers or just to cool off. Or the blue pool, a natural swimming pool about 10 minuets drive up the road and down an unmade track, fed by natural springs and waterfalls. Also the river Genal about 30 minuets drive on the other side of the village, a short walk along its banks reveals numerous places to swim in its clear waters. Wild river walking at Aldea de la Higuera in the river Almachal also reveals secret pools for cooling down and swimming.Wander the tracks and byways of hidden green valleys and streams. Walk or drive to the top of the nearby mountain, Los Reales, a height of some 4000 ft gives you breathtaking views of Gibraltar, Africa and the south coast of Spain all laid out before you. Once there you are amid pinsapo pine trees left behind by the last ice age of which only a handful of places in Spain remain, these prehistoric specimens, extinct in the rest of the world. Discover the areas natural world with its diversity of flora and fauna, including Spanish Ibex, Wild boar, Deer, Eagles and vultures.

Magnífica casa en un entorno natural maravilloso. El lugar es perfecto para desconectarse y disfrutar de la tranquilidad. La calidad de las instalaciones es excelente y los anfitriones muy amables, además que es muy fácil y rápido comunicarse con ellos. Esperamos alguna vez volver.

This cosy cottage was the perfect spot for a quiet weekend getaway. Nestled into the mountainside on a wooded, winding road in Valle del Genal, it serves as an ideal home-base for hiking, gathering chestnuts in the Fall, or exploring nearby villages such as Genalguacil or Jubrique. If you prefer to just disconnect and enjoy yourself, you can stay and enjoy the lovely grounds and quiet terraces. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that they have a barbecue for guests to use for outdoor cooking. Richard and Anne are gracious and friendly hosts—they where even kind enough to supply us with some olive oil when we realised that we'd forgotten ours. This seems like a good moment to echo what's been mentioned in other reviews—the nearest tiny market is in the village about 15 minutes away, so I would suggest bringing most things with you (SUPERMERCADO ZARZA. C/ Patio Higuera de la Muda, s/n – 29492 Genalguacil). The kitchen is well-equipped with cookware and utensils, but don't expect a cupboard with ingredients if you plan on cooking. We were often greeted by Richard and Anne's three curious and friendly dogs. Two mostly kept to themselves, and one was shameless in his quest for belly rubs and love. We used the GPS coordinates to navigate there, and that took us right to the entrance of the property. Note that it's difficult to see the house from the road, so don't panic if at first it seems that you might not be in the right place.

A wonderful place to stay in a very peaceful and idyllic setting. The house itself has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard with lots of nice touches. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the terrace looking out over the fruit trees (great figs!) and views across the valley. Thank you again Anne and Richard
