Everything you need to know about this country house for sale

Immaculately renovated, luxury country house with captivating views for sale in the region of La Axarquia, Malaga province. Set on its own private hilltop at almost 550m altitude, the award-winning luxury villa rental overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and the Sierra Tejeda nature reserve, with the highest peak in the province. The approximately 2-hectare (5 acres) estate features multiple chill out areas surrounded by sculptured gardens, a vineyard and olive and almond groves. 

The traditional Andalusian cortijo (an eminent farmstead), known as Cortijo El Carligto, dates back more than 150 years. The impeccably restored farmhouse is sympathetic to its rustic Andalusian origins, yet achieves an elegant, timeless feel that is light and spacious. El Carligto boasts four characterful double bedrooms, two en-suite; the master bedroom connects to the en-suite through a short arched corridor and offers a unique hammam-sytle bath, balcony terrace and outdoor shower. Multiple lounges and living rooms, a separate family bathroom and an additional guest bathroom complete the interior.

The pool area is simply seductive. An ancient eucalyptus tree looms over an adjacent grassy garden and cabana, and shades the poolside summer kitchen and the pool itself. The breathtaking view from the pool terrace offers a “top of the world” sensation. Nothing short of spectacular; marvel as the land seemingly falls away before you into the valley and spills out to meet the Mediterranean Sea beyond.

The Cortijo operates as a luxury vacation rental and has been awarded “Best rural escape in Spain”, Conde Nast Gold List 2019-20. A full team of dedicated staff and service providers can continue to serve any new owners. These would include, for example, a property manager and concierge, gardener and maintenance staff, housekeepers, drivers, private chefs and more. If the new owner wanted to continue running the rental business, this would cover annual maintenance and deliver additional income.
