An enchanting and spacious one bedroom cottage, completely self- contained with a private terrace and delightful views over the valley with tropical fruit orchards and vineyards.Situated at the edge of the beautiful whitewashed village of Cútar .The ancient Moorish village of Cútar is far from the tourist trail but only an hour from Málaga airport, 25 minutes from the coast and secluded beaches and within easy reach of the great Andalucian cities of Granada and Córdoba.
The 200 year old cottage has been completely renovated in the Andalucian style - preserving the traditional features but with modern appliances that include free wifi. The high beamed ceilings and handmade terracotta floor tiles help stabilize the summer and winter temperatures. The cottage is accessed via a pretty patio in traditional patterned stonework with a large flowering cactus and tropical plants.
The door of the cottage opens into an open-plan kitchen and living area with an attractive open fireplace in traditional brickwork. The room is furnished with handmade Andalucian furniture which enhance the Moorish-Spanish feel of the space. There is a CD player and radio, CDs, books, local guides and board games. The kitchen is equipped to modern standards with a gas hob, fridge, microwave, toaster and electric kettle.The spacious, high-ceilinged bedroom has a traditional Andalucian double bed and wardrobe. It has a warm and intimate feel. The bed is made up with best quality white cotton linen, changed weekly. Like the rest of the cottage, the bathroom has a traditional feel, being decorated in hand made ceramic and terracotta tiles. However it is modern and fully equipped including a shower, small bath, bidet and hairdryer. Good quality white cotton bath and hand towels are included .The small,private, south facing terrace completes the suite, overlooks the Cútar valley and Mount Maroma. It includes a small barbecue and ceramic sink.
Cútar has a tapas bar (more in the summer), a well stocked general store and a pharmacy. Larger supermarkets, banks and open air swimming pools (open in the summer months) are available a few minutes drive away in nearby villages. A car is essential as there is little public transport.
Please note that Cútar is a hill village and may not be suitable for people with mobility problems.

We moved to rural Spain from London almost eight years ago - exchanging hectic managerial jobs for life in the Andalucian hills. We rent out three holiday properties in the area, one five bedroom house and two village cottages. We love the area and really enjoy introducing it our guests - all of whom we meet on arrival. We farm a hillside plot near the village, growing mangoes, almonds, grapes, figs and citrus - which we happily share with our guests in season. Judy (a sculptor) also runs a small contemporary and community art gallery in Cútar with other local artists.
