Nestled in the privacy of seven acres of attractive gardens tucked away in the Andalusian hills, this spacious cortijo sleeps up to 12 and has been recently restored while maintaining all of its original character. It’s just a 5 minute drive to Ronda, one of the area’s loveliest and most historic towns and offers a peaceful and tranquil base for enjoying southern Spain.
Facing west the house enjoys gorgeous views of the magnificent Grazalema National Park. Outside there is a shady colonnade on one side of the property and a very private and restful courtyard with trees and fountains on the other. The pool area is set in its own garden and is positioned a little away from the house. Fully equipped it includes, shower, bar and dining facilities. With an abundance of fruit trees and a horse paddock, La Huerta really is a haven for children and with few steps it is ideal for those less mobile. The spacious house is designed to be cool in summer and warm in winter, with log fires and under floor heating for maximum comfort. There is an extensive library of books, Bose Wave music machines, and roomy comfortable hammocks to relax and unwind in. For those wanting to stay connected there is Wi-Fi throughout the house. The large country style kitchen is well equipped and will delight those who enjoy to cook.
The six bedrooms, five with en-suite also includes a separate private apartment, should you wish to give some of your party complete privacy. The bedrooms and bathrooms create a sense of comfort and relaxation and are light and bright. The peaceful country setting ensures you and your guests sleep well.
Ronda is a 5 minute drive and is famous for its dramatic escarpments and views and is also the birthplace of modern bullfighting. There’s much to explore from this part of Spain, including Jerez, Seville and Granada, the coast or lakes, the nearby pueblos blancos (white villages) or if you wish to go further afield you can even take a day trip to Morocco. Activities to enjoy include walks and picnics, riding, skiing, paragliding, hot air ballooning, tennis and golf. You can also visit a bull breeding farm or a poncho factory. Watch olive oil being pressed, visit a local bodega or arrange a flamenco evening at the house itself. It’s just a 60 minute drive to Marbella beach and train station and a 90 minute drive to Malaga.

La Huerta El Noque is a beautiful, personalized property that provided exactly what we wanted for our family. All our needs were met, the region was spectacular with lots of great things to do. - Teresa G., Ontario, Canada

What a wonderful place - stunning location, friendly staff, gorgeous and clean house...doesn\'t get any better. Our mixed generation family trip was perfectly suited for El Noque. We were sad to leave!

Exploring Andalusia from this beautiful villa was ideal. Day trips to Costa del Sol, Gibraltar, Jerez de la Frontera, Granada, Seville, and the quaint Pueblos Blancos was convenient and remarkable. The landscape was breath taking. Each town was unique with warm and friendly people. Returning home to this luxurious villa was welcomed at days end. We cooked together three dinners and every breakfast. We enjoyed the swimming pool, gardens, and common areas. The bedrooms and baths were updated and comfortable. The concierge and property manager (Renata) arranged a cooking class at the villa, hot air ballooning, and other fun activities. All our needs were met, and we had our best family reunion ever. We highly recommend Luxury Retreats and El Noque for your next vacation.
