The Finca (farm) is situated within 1km strolling distance of the Blue Village of Júzcar, in the upper Genal Valley, South West of Ronda and North of San Pedro in Andalucía, Southern Spain.
The farmhouse has been restored with traditional features such as wooden windows and doors, tiled floors and chestnut roof beams. Accommodation provides for 15 people in six bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a fully equipped modern kitchen. The large open plan kitchen - living room, is an ideal social space for large family get-togethers, or groups of friends. All rooms have stunning countryside views. The outside terrace on the south and south west sides of the house is the perfect spot to wine and dine laze about and absorbed the Andaluz countryside and wildlife.
Across the valley, only 800 meters away (as the eagles fly) is the once traditional white village of Júzcar. The village was painted blue in 2011 for the arrival of the Smurfs (Pitufos), to promote the Sony Pictures “Smurfs in 3D” movie. What was intended to be a temporary stunt, turned out to be so popular, the population of 250 people voted to retain the colour.
Júzcar, is an ideal location to tour the local countryside. With its wildlife and flora, walking trails, history and culture, Júzcar is very interesting place. Local walks include “Los Riscos”, a limestone mountain range with unique rockery plants and fossils from beneath the Mediterranean. Amongst the warren of country tracks, ideal for walking and cycling is the track to the River Genal. Just 4k to the river, from late spring to early autumn, a charco (pool) at the bottom of the track is a great spot to visit for a cooling summer swim. There is also a small bar/restaurant on the shady river bank.
It is also well worth visiting the six neighbouring villages, each offering something different, such as the cathedral in Alpandeire. Just 45 minutes in opposite directions, you can visit the beaches of the Costa del Sol at San Pedro. Or for a completely different experience, a visit to the historic and famous City of Ronda is a must.
Other easy day-trips by car include: The Costa del Sol, Costa del la Luz, Cádiz, Jerez, Sevilla, Granada Málaga and Gibraltar. We are within 20 minutes is the Natural park of the Sierra Los Nieves and the Natural park of Grazalema, about an hour.
There are numerous excellent restaurants and typical country bars for tapas at your disposal.
For a laid back holiday with the friendliest, proudest folk in Spain, please visit as soon as you can.
Treat my home like you would your own.
About the Host, Colm
I'm involved with Rural Accommodation is the Genal Valley, Serrinia de Ronda, Malaga, Spain since 2002, and I only came for a holiday!
The reviews below cover 4 properties we manage in 3 different villages locally, please note which house is being reviewed, to avoid confusion.
The Genal Valley is dotted with 17 Traditional White Villages (and one smurf blue), and has a unique unspoilt countryside. The micro-climate makes for mild winter and lower temperatures than other places in Spain in Summer.
Ideal for walking, mountain biking, painting holidays, and energetically doing nothing at all.
