This traditional Spanish farmhouse is hidden away up a track and is filled with original art, beautiful ceramics and rich fabrics. You’ll also find a huge library of books, films and music for every age so even if the outside palls there’s tons to occupy. The kitchen has all the basics for cooking and the owners leave you a bottle of their own rioja and a basket of fruit.
Bedrooms have French doors to balconies and terraces with panoramic views. Wander the pretty grounds among wildflower meadows, pomegranate and peach trees, groves of almond and olive. There are sunny courtyards and terraces shaded by wisteria so you can chase or scuttle away from the sun and choose where to barbecue for the evening light.
Stock up and settle in or explore the fabulous white villages in the mountains. Good beaches are a half-hour drive, Granada and Malaga close enough for a day trip. Return to dark sky status on your magical roof terrace.
