Rural villa in El Acebuchal, Frigiliana, 2 bedrooms. Paradise does exist! Just a few kilometres north of Frigiliana, take the road to the hamlet El Acebuchal, and you will approach the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara, and Alhama Natural Park. Then, a beautiful green valley. This is where Cortijo Ricardo is located, in a forest setting where peace and quiet reign. Your little paradise—and Andalusia doesn’t come better than this! LOCATION AND OUTSIDE AREA Rustic, private, and rural. This is the essence of this wonderful location. The valley hides at a 10 minute drive from Frigiliana, an enjoyable trip through the mountains. The access has some pronounced curves but doesn't give any problems as the track is fully surfaced with concrete.

Just a few kilometres north of Frigiliana, take the road to the hamlet El Acebuchal, and you will approach the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara, and Alhama Natural Park. Then, a beautiful green valley. This is where Cortijo Ricardo is located, in a forest setting where peace and quiet reign. Your little paradise—and Andalusia doesn’t come better than this! LOCATION AND OUTSIDE AREA Rustic, private, and rural. This is the essence of this wonderful location. The valley hides at a 10 minute drive from Frigiliana, an enjoyable trip through the mountains. The access has some pronounced curves but doesn't give any problems as the track is fully surfaced with concrete. The cortijo is set on generous grounds and has several sitting corners with flowers and trees. There is an attractive barbecue area and shady porch with patio furniture. The private pool (7x4 m) comes with sun loungers and is on a higher level giving panoramic views over the valley and also to the hamlet El Acebuchal (1 km), a tiny village with an interesting history. Its inhabitants were forced to abandon the hamlet in 1949 by the Franco regime. 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 works have 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. In the whitewashed village of Frigiliana, well worth a visit, you will find a wide selection of shops, tapa bars, and restaurants. If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic spot, then you may also visit Nerja (9 km) where you can enjoy its beautiful beaches and take a dive in the Mediterranean. Note: Low by the ground (sports) cars may not be able to access the property. Nearest airport : Malaga - 65.0 km Nearest town : Frigiliana - 5.0 km Nearest beach : 12.9 km Nearest supermarket : 5.0 km Nearest restaurant : 3.0 km Nearest golf course : 25.0 km Nearest bus stop : 5.0 km Car essential : Yes INSIDE AND LAY-OUT Cortijo means “farmhouse,” and that is clearly what it used to be. Impressive beamed ceilings and terracotta floors combine with the traditional ochre-coloured walls, making this an authentic Andalusian cottage with a warm ambiance. The living room has four armchairs, an open fireplace, satellite TV, and DVD. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer, a 3-ring hob, microwave, dishwasher, and washing machine. There are two bedrooms (one double and one twin) and a shower room with washbasin and WC. Notes: - A WiFi internet connection is available (free of charge). - A refundable deposit of 200 EUR (in cash) is required upon arrival and will be refunded in case the accommodation is left in good order.
