Set in an area which is famous for its beautiful houses, villa “El Jardin” is a rare treasure; rustic and completely authentic. The first thing that strikes you is the magnificent location of this property, south facing, perched on the top of a hill. A splendid panorama of Mediterranean Sea spreads out in front of your eyes. Majestic mountains of Sierra de Tajeda Natural Park set breathtaking scenery. Surrounding hills, wide spread valleys filled with farms and orchards entwine all around you. It’s absolutely wonderful.
Bright colours, vibrant art and joyful Andalusian feel contrast with solid wood and warm terracotta. The colour scheme of warm oranges, earthy reds and emerald greens fill open spaces. Sizeable windows make the living areas of this spacious property as bright as you could ever wish for.
“El Jardin” is situated within its own orchards of avocado, orange, mango, lemon and olive trees. The house is surrounded by landscaped Mediterranean gardens. A maze of sunny terraces offers privacy in the sun, hidden courtyards and patios provide sanctuaries of shade and exotic flora.
The swimming pool is set on an elevated patio area, from where in every direction, the views are superb. Hills and open valleys stretch right to the sea.
The house is located in the midst of all this rural beauty. It is only twelve minutes drive from one of Spain’s prettiest whitewashed towns – Frigiliana. A well maintained road takes us through olive and mango trees covered hillsides.
There are three apartments in “El Jardin” villa, each of them independently accessible. Each one can be made completely private or joined with one or two of the others to accommodate larger groups. All apartments share equal access to gardens, an orchard and a swimming pool.
