Living in Andalucia has its many charms. Whether you enjoy the warm late evenings on the beach or long strolls through the natural parks, Andalucia can offer you all! Some people prefer living in a beach side villa, others prefer a luxury home on the golf course or an exclusive penthouse downtown. Yet, a different option is to live in a country estate hidden in the mountains of southern Spain. Often people that search for a country property are seeking peace and quiet yet having golf, beach clubs and luxury shopping around the corner. Not always is it possible to find a combination of these in one property. However, this amazing Andalusian barn-style estate, located near Marbella, can offer you the best of all worlds! This blog will shed light on the lifestyle of the family that decided to buy and live in this beautiful country estate they call home.
Buying a country estate in southern Spain
One of the features that makes this property so special is that it is built to be a family house, grand like a mansion! It has the perfect spots for all kinds of activities. When the kids come back from school, there is an enormous kitchen waiting for the daily family catchups and after-school snacks. Moreover, this property provides all kinds of after-school activities. These can range from horse-riding, cycling and hiking to playing football at the village nearby or camp in the garden. On the other hand, the house also has a beautiful dining room ready to be used for formal dinner parties. While the parents have a private suite upstairs, the rooms of the kids are all found in one wing of the house. This is the perfect family home with amenities that can be thoroughly enjoyed by both the parents and the children!
The wonder of this property is that everything is nearby while still having your private estate. International Schools are about 25 minutes away. The beach is only at a 15-minute drive and the nearest village, Casares, is at a 5-minute drive where you can immerse yourself in the authentic Andalusian lifestyle. For those seeking, luxury is also at your doorstep. The five-star luxury hotel and golf-resort Finca Cortesin is at a 15-minute drive as is its top-notch beach club. Just a 20-minute drive and you can enjoy the benefits of the Marbella or Sotogrande lifestyles.
Living in the mountains
Peace, quiet and serenity. These are three qualities that define living in the mountains. Are these qualities you look for when dreaming about your next home? Then this property might just be perfect for you. Hidden between the hills of Casares, this country estate is blessed with a calming privacy. During the evening, you will slowly start to see the sun melt into the horizon. As different layers appear with all kinds of shades of orange, this property has one of the most magnificent sunsets you can think of. Sipping on a glass of wine and enjoying the delicious Andalusian tapas while staring into the dreamy views over the valley towards the Alcornocales Park will have never felt the same.
