REF: VTAR/CA/02113
Ideal for couples looking for peace and tranquility.

Property Description

These three very unique cottages can be found hidden down a 4km bumpy country track that leads eventually to the beautiful and unknown cobbled beaches of Guadelmesi. It takes approximately 15 minutes to get to the cottages from the main road in Pelayo, but it is most definitely worth it – this is the perfect spot to unwind, relax and enjoy the unspoilt and mesmerising views. 

Decoration at these three cottages is rustic and tasteful, and wonderfully luminous; well-equipped with their kitchenette, sitting room, eating area and private terrace complete with resplendent view. Bedrooms have good quality mattresses and are en-suite with bath / shower. 

Without a doubt the infinity pool and beautifully cared for gardens are the highlight of this property. The views and the nature are to get lost and found in.

Renting a car is an absolute necessity at this property. The country track to this property is off the N340 in Pelayo and is 4km, the track can be bumpy and pot-holed so we recommend that clients rent a car that is high off the ground and drive slowly to the property. 

Guest Reviews

“A piece of heaven with spectacular views. This is now our second year in a row that we have come to stay at this very special property.”

“Fantastic view of Africa! Quiet location in the nature reserve in the middle of nature, we could watch many birds. Lovingly furnished holiday apartment with everything you need. Very nice, courteous owner. We felt very comfortable, a little paradise!”

“This place is a dreamland! The best place I have lived ever, beautiful ambience, landscaping is to die for, tastefully decorated rooms with an awesome view of the ocean and Morocco right behind it.”

“The reception was very friendly and we were very well informed. The location is simply fantastic. Our holiday apartment was very well equipped; the very wide and very good beds deserve an extra mention.”

“A wonderful place to slow down. Fantastic view out to Africa, great pool and a garden like the garden of Eden. Recommendable to everyone. However: the last 4 kilometres to the accommodation lead over unpaved roads with many potholes. An SUV is expressly recommended here. And: if you don't like dogs, you are in the wrong place. However, the owner's dogs are extremely lovable.”
