Cottage with a heated pool!
In an idyllic setting, we found this adorable former farmhouse. It\'s over 100 years old and has been converted with love into a rural cottage, offering a quiet and relaxing stay for its guests. The nearby hamlet of El Acebuchal is a real “away from it all” destination where the crowds seem to be a million kilometres away. Yet, the whitewashed village of Frigiliana (6.5 km) is only a 15 minute drive and the beaches of Nerja only 25 minutes.
Location and outside area
The hamlet El Acebuchal, only a 5 minute walk (0.5 km), has an interesting history. It sits in the folds of a lovely valley in the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara, and Alhama Natural Park from where its inhabitants were forced to abandon the hamlet in 1949 by the Franco regime. Then, El Acebuchal remained unoccupied and fell into ruin until 1998 when a descendant of one of the original villagers bought a house there. He encouraged others to help renovate the 32 homes, town hall, chapel, bar, and streets that make up El Acebuchal. The work has been carried out with great care and attention to details to return the village to its former glory. There are no shops here but there is a bar restaurant that serves up local dishes such as game, wild boar, and goat. Access to El Acebuchal is by a winding road through the mountains. The last 1.5 km are not surfaced and have some bumps. The surroundings are ideal for walkers—pine trees at every turn while aromatic thyme and rosemary scent the hillsides. In the whitewashed village of Frigiliana, well worth a visit, you will find a wide selection of shops, tapa bars, and restaurants. If you prefer a day at the beach, then you may also visit Nerja (9 km) where you can enjoy its beautiful beaches and take a dive in the Mediterranean. Small and intimate cove beaches can be found if you head to the east of Nerja. Outside the villa, on a higher level, there’s your own covered, circular, heated pool. As you’d expect, you also have a barbecue and patio furniture for al fresco meals. Sun beds and a sunshade are available.

The villa itself was converted by the local owners, giving it a traditional Spanish feel with a distinctly rustic finish.
