This luxury private villa near Malaga is built on the site of an old farmhouse and is sympathetic to its rustic Andalucian heritage, whilst simultaneously reveling in stylish elegance and modern sophistication with an uncompromising eye for detail. Hand stitched Suzani tapestries, carefully chosen antiques and over sized fireplaces (both indoor and out) create an elegant backdrop where peaceful contemplation and blissful rejuvenation is the order of the day.
El Carligto boasts four double bedrooms adorned with bespoke furniture, sumptuous bedding and ornate colourful linens. Two of the double bedrooms are en suite; the master bedroom is connected to the en suite through a short arched corridor and offers a unique hammam style bath, balcony terrace and outdoor shower to invigorate. There is also a separate family bathroom.
The pool area is simply seductive: entertain in the adjacent summer kitchen, take shade under the ancient eucalyptus or palm trees in the grassy poolside garden and find your solace by the water garden in the covered spa cabana. Basking in the Andalucian sun at the edge of 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 total area of the house El Carligto is 300 m2:
A traditional wooden door brings you into a hallway, after which you enter the living room. The seating area with comfortable couch is stylishly furnished and the large fireplace provides extra atmosphere. The fully equipped kitchen, with large dining table for 8 people, offers the possibility of making your own meals. Perhaps a recipe from one of the many cookbooks that you can view here. A chef can also prepare lunch or dinner for you here or help you put together a top dish of local products yourself.
El Carligto has no fewer than four fireplaces within the house, plus an open barbecue.
A hallway takes you to a cozy bedroom with a double bed size 140 cm and a bathroom ensuite with shower. The other two bedrooms adjacent to this hall have 180 cm bed size, which can be made up as either 1 or 2 beds. These bedrooms share a bathroom with bath, shower and toilet. In the hall is an extra toilet. The hall comes from a door that can be closed. Behind this you will find a hall, where the second living room, a bedroom, an outside terrace and library with wine bar are adjacent. This fourth bedroom is a larger bedroom with a 160 cm double bed and has a wonderful bathroom with a special hammam-style bath and a shower. The doors open onto a private terrace complete with sun loungers, an outside shower and sea view.
The library offers the privacy to read a book or "if necessary" to work in peace. A door opens to a shaded seating area in the courtyard with a beautiful view and a large fireplace. The other door opens to a private lounge, where you can watch TV or play playstation games. The terracotta floor has underfloor heating for the colder months and the air conditioning provides cooling during the warmer months.
The well-kept garden with various terraces and seating areas surrounds the cortijo:
A large covered dining table seats 10 people and a smaller table for 4 people for your morning coffee or afternoon drink. A play lawn for smaller children to play on.
A small vegetable garden in a special location, namely the ruins of the former siesta house. The pool area is somewhat lower and offers spectacular views. The outdoor kitchen and lounge will be a favorite place during your stay. There is also a spa cabana for massages and beauty treatments. Environmentally friendly design with solar panels for hot water, reuse of water for watering the garden and a tree is planned for every booking
El Carligto can also be rented, together with the adjacent private villa The Hunting Lodge, for a group or special event for up to 14 people.
