Casa Grande offers an eclectic mix of a grand English country grandeur with the rustic charm of the dusty Andalucian countryside. Built in typical colonial Edwardian style, the house forms part of a cork farm estate overlooking the bay of Gibraltar, with views across the Mediterranean sea to Morocco. Situated in a spectacular natural park between the exclusive resort of Sotogrande and the laid-back vibe of the sweeping beaches of Tarifa, it is the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday with family and friends.

The house is spacious and elegant with a sweeping mahogany staircase that leads up from a formal panelled drawing room. Here there is an open fire and views out through huge multi-aspect windows to the manicured gardens all around. There is also a sitting room and formal dining room, perfect for an elegant evening dinner as well as a more informal sitting room with leather sofas and TV. The bedrooms follow a similar style with high ceilings and exquisite period bathrooms.

The house sleeps 18 guests across 10 bedrooms, 3 with en-suite facilities. It has everything that you could need for a relaxing holiday with a gourmet-style kitchen, perfect for rustling up typical Spanish dishes with ingredients bought from the fabulous local markets. With ample things to do such as swim, play tennis in the house’s private court, as well as challenging your guests to a game of basketball or table tennis, you will be hard pushed to want to leave the property at all.

Outside, there are 3 terraces, 2 at the front of the house, just perfect for a drink under the late evening sun and a large dining terrace at the rear of the house, overlooking extensive lawned mature gardens.

A large private swimming pool with sun loungers is the focus of the outside area and here there is another BBQ and seating, perfect for a quick lunch. With its own tennis court and outside games room with views of the mountains, as well as ample space to play basketball and football, there is very little more that this gorgeous property could offer.

The house overlooks the bay of Gibraltar, whose beaches are only 3 km away, and the sandy dunes of Tarifa are just 30 km away. Here you can admire the dazzling array of kite surfs filling the sky in front of your very eyes, and visit the lovely bohemian shops and cafes in the town. The spectacular cities of Cadiz, Malaga, Sevilla, Granada and Cordoba are all within reach for a day trip and the smaller white mountain towns of Ronda, Casares and Gaucin are between 1-2 hours away by car. For a more glamorous evening out, head to the renowned restaurants and bars of Puerto Banus and Marbella, just over an hour’s drive from the property.

ACTIVITIES NEARBY: There are lots of things to do around the villa, golf being perhaps the most common. There are various clubs in the vicinity such as the San Roque Club and La Reserva. There are lots of opportunities for hacking in the countryside from private stables to larger clubs such as the San Roque Club, and Sotogrande is the place to go for an afternoon of polo or sailing. As the property is so near to the coast, there are many beaches, some busy and some hidden as well as the famous white sands of Tarifa. The latter offers various watersports and kite surfing as well as the opportunity to watch world-class kiters in action. There are also lots of forests and countryside walks as well as fishing in the local lake. Slightly further afield, there are ferries from Algeciras to Tangiers and there is a short helicopter ride from Tarifa across the water.

GETTING THERE: Nearest airport: Gibraltar 20 km, Malaga 140 km.
