Outside - description and photographs
Light and airy, comfortable and well equipped, this house is perfect for holiday living. South facing, it is perched on a hill side and the swimming pool area in particular, makes the most of the spectacular views across the mountains and down towards the Mediterranean.
The house is situated within its own 8,000 square meters of private land, a supremely tranquil, very beautiful and private environment where only the soft sound of clinking goat bells and the breeze rustling through the trees will interrupt the peace.
The pool area is great for sun bathing and has sun from dawn until dusk. It is a good size and offers spectacular views of the mountains.
There is a rustic pergola to shade you from the mid-say sun, together with a table and chairs and plenty of garden furniture from which to admire the views and pool area and plan your next swim.
The front shaded terrace has a built-in barbecue at one end and is ideal for outside dining whilst enjoying the panoramic views of the countryside in total privacy.
There is an outside shower and plenty of room to sunbathe and relax around the attractively tiled pool. The pool can be floodlight at night.
This property is completely secluded and peaceful -the only sounds you are likely to hear are those of goat bells in the distance. You can enjoy the magnificent view whilst having a meal from the front shaded terrace or pool area.
With beautiful views and the quiet countryside all around, one previous guest told me that the house was "a paradise". For people searching for tranquility, this is the place to be!.
There is even a small playground for your kids in our grounds.
'A haven of tranquility. Some holidays are enjoyable, but by the time they are over we are ready to return home. That was not the case after our stay at Casa Las Jaras. We had such a warm welcome and a relaxing stay that it was a real wrench to leave. The property is secluded and peaceful. Although there is plenty to do and see in the local area, on warm days we preferred to simply laze by the pool whilst butterflies (of which there are many) danced through the garden. If you enjoy bird watching, then you don’t need to move from the garden to see many different species. In fact, many would obligingly flit past the terrace where we sat for our meals, with a spectacular view of the valley. We were sorry to leave, but we hope to be back soon. Many thanks for a peaceful and rejuvenating break'.Rebecca & Jim. Belgium.
'The perfect hideaway. This modest looking house may lack the wow factor in photos, but it made a superb holiday home. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean, glorious views across the empty valley, but the trump card is the complete seclusion of the attractive pool area & terraces'.Danny Brown.
'We had a wonderful holiday. We could have just lazed in the garden all day listening to the birdsong and enjoying the lovely views over the hills. This is a place for people who enjoy nature and peaceful surroundings, it is good walking country in scenic countryside and so nice to return home to'.Mr & Mrs Stones.
'Peace on earth. The property was immaculate, clean and homely. The location was perfect for a stress free holiday, fresh & open with incredible valley views. We found the people of the area very warm and friendly and look forward to returning next year'.Ellie & Damien.
'I would highly recommend Las Jaras for families or couples looking to explore this picturesque, off the beaten track, corner of rural Andalucia. The villa and its pool are hard to leave behind. It is definitely worth exploring this part of Andalucia, with highlights including the historic city of Malaga, Ronda and Antequera. We will definitely be returning....Paul and Mary. UK.
'The Villa is beautiful and is ideal for a relaxing holiday. Well appointed and very well equipped. It is very spacious and tastefully decorated. It is really home from home".Ray & Robert. UK.
'Top marks to this house. It lived entirely up to our high expectations. An incredible beautiful and peaceful location, an awarding view, an exciting area, a charming and well equipped house and an impeccable service. We will definitely return'.Lone and Anders. UK.
'Many thanks. We had a wonderful time. The villa and its location were just perfect. We spent most days just lazing around the villa, taking advantage of the pool and enjoying the beautiful view. The villa was exceptionally clean and ideally suited to our requirements'.Steph & Brian, UK
'Thank you so much for our lovely week at your villa. The villa was exactly as described, nothing was hidden and lots of lovely extras were provided. It was so refreshing to really feel as though every care had been taken to make sure that we had the nicest time. I could go on forever about how wonderful it was but sometimes I think that more can be said by saying less. It was perfect'.Lia and Lizzie, Oxfordshire.
'We found that the villa lived up to our high expectations and was indeed beautifully and tastefully furnished'.Ruth and Robert. London.
'What a wonderful villa and a wonderful holiday we had! It was all perfect but what we looked forward to each day was the drink on the terrace as the sun went down - so beautiful and peaceful'.Kirschbaum Family, Germany.
'This was our first visit to Spain, and on recomendation from friends we booked this lovely villa. We were not disappointed! Had many lovely days by the pool, or at local beaches, and on cooler days we were able to take trips. Lots to do, but the villa was hard to leave and had all we needed for a very relaxing holiday. Thanks for all the useful information as well'.Hannah & Craig, UK.
'We found that the villa lived up to our high expectations and was indeed beautifully and tastefully furnished'.O'Reilly Family, Devon.
'We had a great time. The villa was great and we found it very well furnished and well equipped. Lovely pool and very well looked after. Great restaurants in Competa, in fact we were very impressed overall by the food in Spain. Lots of places to visit, we particularly liked the Alhambra Palace. May was a lovely time of year to come to Spain, not too many people and not too hot! Highly recommended'.Natalie, The Netherlands.
