|Finca La Cuadra - The Cottage Formerly a stable has been lovingly restored to provide comfortable and rustic accommodation with part Hot & Cold Air Conditioning & Fans and offers far-reaching views towards the local mountains and the Sierra Nevada beyond. The surrounding countryside is covered with tracks, making it an ideal spot for those who enjoy country walks. The cottage is in a rural spot, along an unmade country lane (dirt track) yet only 1 Kilometer away from the local By-pass, which takes you into town in bout a 5-minutes drive. The drive, however, is what provides the level of seclusion once you reach the cottage. Long distance views through the valley are breathtaking. The property is looked after by the owners who live in their own house in the plot adjacent, but unless you seek them, you would never know. The cottage stands in fenced and gated gardens of just under 1 Acre, with another 4 Acres across the lane of Olive Grove. The garden around the cottage has numerous fruit trees of a wide variety, the fruit from wish you are encouraged to pick and eat (when in Season). The water at the Cottage is the best mineral water in this area and drinkable. It is pump-up from our sealed well, which has a borehole 300 feet deep below the earth and filtered naturally. The Cottage is a must for nature lovers. It is located in a beautiful part of the Andalucian countryside, which is covered with a large variety of wild flowers and herbs, including Lavender, Thyme and Sage and makes it a natural habitat for Partridge.|
Minor points: The nearest bar is a 5 minutes drive or a long walk away so you would need suitable walking shoes.
The owners live at about 200 metres behind the cottage and have several dogs that will sometimes bark when a car goes by or other disturbance, which is not often as the villa is in a country lane that leads to just a few other properties. The neighbour in the adjacent land has three horses and a couple of dogs. If you do not like animals or are bothered by these sorts of things then this is not the place for your holiday-
