This beautifully converted house lies in a group of old cottages in a setting of olive orchards overlooking a small valley about 5km from Frigiliana. It is on the edge of the wild national park of the Sierras Tejeda – not remote, but peaceful and romantic in simple countryside and within easy reach of wild and unspoiled nature. The setting is spectacular, and the location is magical.
This old house has been beautifully converted in a way that has preserved the age and authenticity yet also has a new and stylish feel about it. Access is by 15 minutes of country road and cemented track from Frigiliana – an easy but slow drive. When you get there, the place is incomparably special, and romantic, with lawn, beautiful flowers and plants, pots and rocks, bricked paths sloping through the olive trees, vistas up the valley to the mountain peaks, places to sit and think or read, goldfish, hens, a super pool and certain comfort, peace and privacy……an escape to a special and beautiful place…
