This lovely villa epitomizes all that we expect of Andalucian houses by the way they are designed to deal with heat and sun.
Colonnaded verandahs draped with vivid bougainvillea provide a lovely setting for outdoor meals; a delightfully green, 2-acre garden frames an attractive free-form swimming pool, and a cobbled courtyard makes a welcoming entrance to the house as well as being a shady sitting area. The house is slightly elevated above the garden, and the views are glorious – out across the countryside and down to the sea, with a teasing glimpse of Africa. Inside, Los Cristales is cool, with tiled floors and high ceilings; its spacious living room and the pretty bedrooms all have French doors opening on to terraces and balconies. The villa is part of the exclusive La Almuna country estate, and guests are able to enjoy the use of the estate’s tennis court, just five minutes’ walk away. This, together with the suitability of the garden as a children’s play area, makes Los Cristales popular with families.
