An idyllic get away from it all experience

Finca Mariolo is a recently restored and renovated mountain farmhouse, with all modern conveniences, set in the middle of 10 acres of olives and almonds and surrounded by open hillside. The views are breathtaking and on a clear day reach to the sea.

It offers superb tranquillity, nature, peace-and-quiet, remoteness, beautiful mountain landscapes, and idyllic swimming. There's table tennis as well just so you don't relax too much!

With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the house is roomy and spacious and very pleasant to spend time in. It has a very well-equipped kitchen and dining facilities both indoors and outdoors on the stunning terrace. The swimming pool is heated (solar) and at 12 meters long is very nice for real swimming, as well as for simply cooling off. TV, hi-fi and wi-fi are all provided.

The house is north-east of Malaga (40 mins), south-west of Granada (75 mins), north of Riogordo (12 mins). The location is shown on the Google Map to the right.

If you want to leave the peace and quiet of the house, there is plenty to do nearby. There are Mediterranean beaches within 35 minutes drive. Riogordo itself is an unspoilt Spanish village with a good choice of food shopping and bars. Malaga is a delightful city and within easy reach. The historic town of Antequerra and the amazing natural phenomena of El Torcal and El Chorro gorge are less than an hour away. At Granada, the Alhambra and Generalife are unmissable. You could even take a train (45 minutes) to Cordoba and visit the Mesquita.

A week was way too short. A whole year wouldn’t be enough to fully appreciate Finca Mariolo ...

Mariolo has a fantastic setting - broad views over the wide horizon, surrounded by olive trees and nature and no neighbours. Here you can feel really at peace with yourself and world.

... a beautiful homely but spacious house in a magical landscape.

Breathtaking location, very hard to leave
