This delightful house sits in large grounds between Gaucín and the village of Colmenar - ideal for large families and groups. A substantial property, Cortijo de la Palomas, offers a high standard of accommodation for a very rewarding holiday. Well designed, spacious and elegant there is little that you would find wanting. The views are splendid with Gibraltar and the Rif Mountains of Morocco visible on a clear day.

The house is accessed by electric gates and a long driveway with plenty of parking space in front of the impressive facade. It was completed in 2005 but has employed architectural antiques into the structure which emphasises the quality of the build and simultaneously adds character to the property.

The local village of Colmenar offers a couple of bar/restaurants and a hotel on the road towards Gaucín also opens its restaurant to the public. The beaches on the coast are a fifty minute drive and Gaucín itself is 7 kilometres.

Linen is changed weekly, but if a midweek clean and fresh linen are required then this can be arranged and paid for separately. Air conditioning  or underfloor heating optional 200.00€ per week payable locally.

Villa Details


The colour palate used in the interior is subtle and restful, reflecting the local lavender and warmth of the Andalucian sunshine. Off the hallway, stairs lead down to a basement which has a large double garage. A separate  laundry room houses washing machine and tumble dryer.

The sitting room is generously proportioned with a double height ceiling and French widows out onto the main terrace facing the lawns and pool. There is an wood burning stove with fuel available if required and comfortable, quality furniture. A flat screen television is provided as well as a CD & DVD. The dining room has a very weighty dining table seating ten people adjacent to the excellent kitchen. There is a five-ring gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, two fridge/ freezers, microwave and a larder. A smaller, snug sitting room is also provided.

There are three ground floor rooms, each with their own distinctive feel, which are reached via the vaulted colonnade. The first has also two single beds and a bathroom with a walk in shower, the second a double queen sized bed with its own sitting room and en suite bathroom, whilst the third has two singles placed together and a super little terrace and en suite bathroom with a walk in shower.

Upstairs are two more bedrooms. The master bedroom looks out towards the swimming pool and the views beyond - a wonderful start to the day. The king-size bed is comfortable and the adjacent bathroom almost as big with a bath, walk -in shower and double basins. The other bedroom on this floor has two single beds and a bathroom with a walk in shower as well.

In addition a separate apartment is also available to rent to provide a sixth bedroom ensuite which is optional. If just the main house is rented the apartment will remain closed.The apartment has its own sittingroom/ dining room, bedroom with twin beds and a small kitchen area.The bathroom has a large walk in shower.


The garden is designed for pleasure. The swimming pool measures 12 x4 metres with a depth of 1.2 - 2.2 metres, has roman steps and is surrounded by lawn. The sense of space is impressive as one breathes in the environment so redolent of the Andalucian landscape. A large covered terrace provides shade for dining or just relaxing on the generous sized outdoor furniture. An ancient oak tree on the lawn also provides shade from the summer sun.
