• Casa del Rio 1

What we love

One of our favourite features of this villa is that it comes with its own helicopter landing pad!

The Property

Casa del Rio sits within one of southern Spain’s most beautiful private estates, nestled in a valley among natural woodland. The property′s spectacular location is private, secluded and unspoilt, with fabulous views of the surrounding valley, but easily accessible to all that the surrounding area has to offer, and within walking distance of the beautiful village of Benahavis.

The interior design of the house betrays a Moorish influence popular in Andalucia. Living and dining areas are generously proportioned and bridge the way fluidly between the interior and outdoor living spaces, leading to terraces ideal for relaxing, reading or taking an afternoon nap in the Mediterranean heat.

Casa del Rio has a large roof terrace with oversized daybeds, for sunbathing and enjoying the stunning views. A manicured lawn sits at the front of the property, and another surrounds the private swimming pool. Lush vegetation covers the gardens as they gently slope down to the Guadalmina river.

The estate consists of several hundred hectares of completely private and totally unspoilt indigenous Iberian woodland, dissected by the Guadalmina River and a series of crystal clear springs and streams and incorporating a small organic farm and productive organic kitchen garden.

Living Space

The interior of the house is designed in a traditional Andalusian style which contains the strong local Moorish influence. The sitting and dining room are generous and comfortable for a large gathering and open directly onto the terraces with many shaded areas for relaxing in the canvas and cane furniture.

The 4 main bedrooms are large with generously proportioned bathrooms, with a fifth attic bedroom which is reached via a steep staircase – ideal either for a nanny or two older children and shares a bathroom with a bedroom downstairs.
