At just a 10-minute drive up from Hotel Finca Cortesin and the Casares beach, you take a turn into a track up the mountain. Instantly you find yourself in a different world! You would never have guessed to find an exclusive community of 16 delightful country properties. The community of El Jaral is hidden away in the cork oak forest and the properties boast fabulous views towards the Mediterranean Sea, the Rock of Gibraltar and the African coastline. One of these exquisite properties has come up for sale: A Romantic cottage in Casares.
This lovely, well proportioned country property is a true retreat! The ancient old cork oak seem to guard the house. There is a variety of old fruit trees scattered over the plot of approximately 10.000m2. You will find apricots, almonds, figs and lemons. And a small chicken pen complete the farm feel for this cute cottage in Casares.
Clean air, fresh eggs and just enjoy the quiet!
De-stress in this Cottage in Casares
Whether you would use it as a weekend house, a holiday home or as your permanent residence, the characterful cottage on this location will make you de-stress instantly! The clean air, the endless views from your terrace, the connection with nature, will make you forget your busy lives elsewhere. The peace and quiet here is priceless, and yet at only 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the coast. The house itself is well proportioned and snug. Lighting the fire in the living room makes you feel nice and cosy in wintertime and just as privileged as having a glass of wine on your terrace in summer!
If you have considered living in the mountains just off the Costa del Sol but do not want to spend millions on a large country property, this is your chance! Not very often do we have the opportunity to list a country cottage in Casares for this price. The house is very well laid-out with the living and dining areas on the South, opening up to lovely terraces. Two guest bedrooms are on the ground floor, leaving the master suite on the first floor completely private. Next to the main house there is a large storeroom with porch, that could easily be used as a workshop or a painters studio.
It is quite easy to imagine yourself living here, and enjoying outdoor life. You can go for hikes through the mountains from your doorstep. And if you fancy a superb meal in a top restaurant, you just roll down the mountain. Within 2 minutes you are at Restaurant The Forge, or Restaurant Arroyo Hondo.
The authentic Andalusian village Casares is at just a 5-minute drive. It is a lovely little village that oozes true Andalusia. Here you can still find the homemade chorizo and Salchichón and not to forget the prize winning Casares’ goats cheese. Throughout the year a variety of events and fairs are organized to keep the village lively and attractive. For the villagers themselves, as well as the tourists. Driving the other way, towards the coast, you can mingle in the multicultural environment of the Costa. Have dinner in the Michelin star restaurant Kabuki Raw, enjoy a day at the beach or play a round of golf on one of the many courses in the proximity.
Once back at home, we can see you sitting on your bench, with a smile on your face, wondering why you didn’t decide earlier to buy a cottage in Casares Mountains!
