This pretty stone-built cottage is in a idyllic location by the River Genal only 15 minutes drive south from Gaucín. It has lovely views of the mountains and is surrounded by picturesque countryside in a protected area of outstanding natural beauty.

The single-storey cottage was constructed to a good standard in 2008 using traditional materials, including locally produced stone, oak and pine. The unusual ‘Scandinavian’ style and thick stone walls makes it a cosy, comfortable and practical home with a lovely rustic ambience and in total harmony with its beautiful surroundings.

The property is accessed approx. 1.5 km along a track (5 minutes drive) from the main road between Casares/Gaucin.

The attractive and spacious open-plan living accommodation has solid oak flooring and a beamed ceiling in pine. It comprises a cosy sitting area with a wood-burning stove, feature wall with exposed stone and a circular window, a dining area, a small bedroom, a modern walk-in shower room with slate tiling, and a well fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar.

The other bedroom is located on a mezzanine area, accessed via a wooden staircase from the living room. It has a low ceiling and contains a double bed. There is also a large comfortable sofa-bed in the living room.

At the front of the house there is a small shady patio and plenty of space for creating further terraces. There is a wooden tool shed and a small wooden ‘summerhouse’ for children.

The land comprises two plots totalling 2.8 acres of gently sloping land adjoining the nearby river and is suitable for grazing horses, sheep etc. It could also be suitable for a ‘Yurt’ rental business (subject to licence).

The area is abundant with wildlife such as deer, wild pigs and otters, and is ideal for birdwatching with regular visitors including kingfishers, bee-eaters, nightingales, heron, storks, hoopoes, woodpeckers, owls, eagles and vultures.

A few minutes walk along a short path takes you to the riverside, which is easily accessible for swimming and is a beautiful place for a picnic. It offers many natural swimming pools and is perfect for canoeing, river-trekking on foot or horseback. (The river rarely runs dry, except during exceptionally long, hot summers).

The finca contains several established indigenous trees such as olive, carob, eucalyptus, and fruit trees including lemon, orange, clementine and avocado.
