A more dramatic location would be hard to find in Andalucia. Below the sheer escarpment of Ronda lies the Cortijo Del Tajo in a glorious setting with panoramic views. This chic house has everything desirable in a holiday destination. Although below the rock face, the property is still in an elevated position over the verdant valley with pine trees atop the ridge on the other side. The house is traditionally built from the exterior but with a contemporary interior that is fresh and appealing. The sitting room is both simple, but simutaneously intriguing with sculptural shapes, openings and different levels. Old and new have been skillfully juxtaposed with an evidently discerning palette. Modern sofas and rugs are combined with antique items reflecting the local culture. Polished concrete floors are to found through out the house with a hint of ochre here and there.
The dining room/kitchen is spacious with a large square oak table that will seat twelve. The polished concrete continues in the formation of the work surfaces and the standard of appliances is good. There is a Smeg fridge/ freezer and dishwasher, 4 ring gas hob and two electric rings, oven, microwave, juicer and deep-fat fryer.
There are five bedrooms in all. Four bedrooms are in the east wing of the house on the ground floor. Two have beds that can be made up as singles or doubles but on the same platform. The third has a double bed and the fourth has a double bed with an ensuite bathroom with a bath and shower overhead. A second family bathroom is located in this wing also, with a bath and shower overhead. On the first floor, in the tower, is the master bedroom accommodation also with an en suite bathroom with double basins and a bath with shower overhead and separate w/c. Large windows make it a delight to wake up in the morning to the glorious view.
From the main area of the sitting room, French windows lead out onto the terrace which is furnished with a table and chairs for ten, deckchairs and a built in barbecue. The terrace gives way to a lush lawn. A pathway and steps led up to a magnificent infinity pool measuring 15 x 5 metres. There is a drop on one side of the pool so it is important that children are, at no point, left unattended in the pool area. Sunbeds are provided and there is a built in seating area with cushions and an awning. The garden has been skillfully landscaped to blend in with the countryside with swathes of lavander and rosemary and planted with orange trees ,bead trees, bougainvillea and wisteria.Ronda is a ten minute drive away and the coast and beaches approximately an hour away. Access to the house is down a reasonable 1.5 kilometre track and there are electric gates and plenty of parking space. It has no close neighbours and is a special place to enjoy a holiday, see the cultural delights of Ronda and appreciate the fabulous surronding countryside.
