Situated on a private estate in an idyllic environment on the edge of the Serranía de Ronda, La Almuña has panoramic views of Gibraltar and Africa. Built beside an ancient trail once used by fish merchants and smugglers travelling from the coast, the farmhouse is only ten minutes away from the picturesque white villages of Jimena de la Frontera and Gaucín.
La Almuña is surrounded by luxuriant gardens which roll down to the fertile fields of the working farm. There are cobbled courtyards scented with jasmine, orange blossom and other flowers in season and plenty of dogs to greet you. From the swimming pool you can look down on horses grazing peacefully in the meadow below.
It is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday as well as ideal for running all sorts of courses, such as yoga, painting or bridge. Small seminars and commercial shoots, weddings, honeymoons, hen and stag parties are all catered for.
Your hostess Diana runs both houses with a relaxed, house-party atmosphere. She is also a fund of local knowledge and can advise you on all sorts of activities.
La Almuña is very special with a unique atmosphere all its own. It is comfortable and homely with a lived in country atmosphere. Neither modern nor super luxurious, it could best be described as authentically shabby chic.
