>>An absolute hidden gem. Spain at its most beautiful. My favourite spot is the shaded seat outside - a great place to spend time alone reading or watching the sun set.<<
Ok, so you are thinking of renting the whole house with your friends and family, and spending your holiday away from the crowds, the noise and the pollution. Ole! You've come to the right place. High fives will be all around when you arrive at our luxury villa with a private pool.
When you arrive, you will park in our shaded carpark and as you get out of the car and stretch, you will begin to take in the carefully landscaped entrance and the views of the countryside. While the others are just waking up and crawling out of their cars, you are already breathing clean air and looking into the horizon. Isn't it great being on holiday!
From the carpark, you will walk to the front door down a ramp, allowing you to easily wheel in your suitcases and prams or pushchairs. We'll greet you at the door, welcome you into the house and show you around. Most of all, we'll make sure you feel at home.
If you have chosen the contactless check-in, now is the time to give us a call. We will send you a code to access the key, and a video to take you on a virtual tour of the house. In it, we will show you all of the house and provide the same information we would provide in person, except we'll do it without a mask. 😊
As you enter the house, the first thing you notice will be how refreshingly cool it is, thanks to our underfloor cooling system. And if you have booked a stay in winter, you will notice how pleasantly warm it is, thanks to our underfloor heating system. 😊
On your right, you will see a spacious living room. There is ample seating around the fireplace, and a long, comfy bench in front of the large windows. They let in plenty of natural light and the bench is a perfect place to make yourself comfortable and read, all the while peaking out to get a glimpse of the countryside.
You may have noticed a door on the left. It's one of our six bedrooms. The other five are on the upper floor, but we thought having one donwstairs would cater for anyone who might find it difficult to manage the stairs.
This bedroom is slightly smaller than the rest, but it has an ensuite bathroom and a French window that lets in lots of light, making it very bright and airy.
The living room shares the space with a large dining room. There is a table for 12 people, but seeing there are a couple of big tables outdoors, you may end up using this one the least.
There are more large windows in the dining room, all with a view of our porch. From here, you can step out onto the porch, walk through to the kitchen or go upstairs.
If you have brought the shopping with you, you will want to put it away and keep it cool asap. The kitchen is fully equipped and has ample storage space, so go ahead and take care of that first.
P.S. We are convinced that whoever ends up cooking, will enjoy doing the job in our kitchen. And whoever ends up washing the dishes, will undoubtedly enjoy it, too. With all the space and the views, being in our kitchen will no longer feel like a chore. 😉
While the others are storing the food away, you have come up to check out the rooms. Maybe you've sneaked up to make sure you get the best one? Don't worry, all the rooms on this floor are similar in terms of size and comfort. Whichever room you choose, it will be your haven of peace and calm after a busy day socialising with your group.. All rooms have a king size bed (160x200cm), a French window with views of the countryside, and an ensuite bathroom. You can have a closer look at all the rooms here.
After leaving your luggage in the room, have a look around. From one of the sitting rooms, you can step out onto this balcony, with views of the swimming pool and the Sierra de San Cristóbal. You will have sun here in the morning and shade in the afternoon.
At the other end of the hallway, you will find this sitting room. There are two sofas, a bookshelf and some toys for the little ones. From here, you can access the terrace.
Aren't the views from the terrace just amazing?! We suggest you come here in the evening, just before the sunset. Every day. You won't regret it. In all these years, we haven't seen a sunset that disappointed us. In fact, we are always tempted to take pictures of our sunsets, but truth be told, no picture can do them justice. You simply have to see them to believe us.
Ok, so we couldn't avoid showing you a small sample. It was just too tempting. If you too take a picture or two of our sunsets while here, don't forget to post them on your social media accounts. You'll get lots and lots of likes. Trust us, we know.
>>All-around WONDERFUL experience! The location is perfect for a relaxing getaway, especially if you enjoy scenic views and ample hiking through rolling hills.<<
From the terrace, you can walk down to the front porch and from there... wherever your heart desires. You can go to the pool, take a walk in the countryside, get in the car and go for a scenic drive, or go back in and enjoy the cool indoor spaces. After all, you're on holidays. You can do whatever you like just because.
So you've decided to come back in. Is it to check out our porch?
Here it is. Isn't it lovely! There's a large table, comfortable seating and a fireplace that doubles as a barbecue. And even though we get very little rain in this part of Spain (and most of it stays mainly in the plain ;-), having a covered, enclosed porch will protect you from the sun and the wind, too. In winter, when the sun is quite low, you can lower the wickar blinds to block it out. Summer or winter, the porch is a great place for socialising until the wee small hours of the morning.
Just around the corner from the porch, you will find this shaded summer kitchen with yet another large table and another barbecue. You can't see it, but behind that blue door is a fridge-freezer. It's perfect for keeping the food and the drinks that you plan to have here or by the pool. Did someone mention a pool?
Only a few steps away from the summer kitchen, you will find this delightful 4x10m salt pool. It includes a lovely shaded area, perfect for chilling-out with a cold drink in one hand and a book in the other. Or you can have a resfreshing swim and then lie in one of our loungers and enjoy doing nothing. Dolce far niente is a popular pastime among our guests.😉
When the sun goes down, come back and have your nightcap by the pool. Stargazing and looking out for shooting stars will be a magical way to wrap up an already perfect day.
The next morning, as you wake up to the sound of birds singing, you will want to have a repeat of the previous day, a kind of a Groundhog Day experience, only this time, you will actually want it that way. And we don't blame you! It's what Finca Flores Amarillas does to people. Time and time again. 😊
