Luxury should not be afraid of simplicity

In a remote corner of southwest Spain, between Cádiz and Ronda, a two-hundred-acre private estate with a working farm epitomises one of our favourite phrases – luxury should not be afraid of simplicity.

In what was originally a private home, seven well-appointed guest accommodations, plus two tented yurts, are served by a staff that includes a chef, housekeepers, drivers, etc. It is perfect for an exclusive stay.

There are Indoor and outdoor pools, gardens and terraces, a small spa with hammam and ice-pool, options for horse-riding, hiking and visiting nearby Andalusian villages.

Simple, yet stylish, and sophisticated in an unpretentious way, it is all in the details. Huge copper baths; wide-planked natural wood floors; a baby grand piano; a glazed, fully chilled wine room; lots of leather; wellies and woollen ponchos provided for walking in the ravishing countryside on cool days; a home cinema; books and arrangements of beautiful wild flowers everywhere.

Visit Ronda, Córdoba and Cádiz. See a bullfight and experience authentic flamenco in Seville; fly up to Madrid or south to Marrakech; play golf on a world-class course.

From now through June, and then from September to the first half of November, are the perfect months to visit.

Let Nota Bene plan something wonderful for you on the Iberian Peninsula this year.

Happy Easter to our clients and followers.
