River valley terraced house
In Jimera de Libar - set in a wide valley with mountains around - a small terraced townhouse - 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom with full bath and shower over - sleeps 2 - 4. It's nine years old and in a very pretty spot south-west of Ronda, a few steps from a railway station - the line is the Andalucia Express and goes from Algeciras to Granada. There are four trains each way per day. Ronda is a 32 minute ride and the price is around 3.50 Euros!
The little horseshoe of houses is virtually next to the River Guadiaro. The village - Jimera de Libar -is in a valley surrounded by a nature reserve and is a great favourite with birdwatchers. Numerous walkers and birdwatdhers websites mention how excellent the restaurant near the station is - it is a few steps from our door. There is another bar/restaurant five minutes walk away.
There is even a little makeshift bar on the river bank.
Inside - tiled floors throughout. The living room has dining table, a sofa, an armchair and open fireplace beyond there is a separate fully fitted kitchen. The back door opens from here on to the tiny rear patio.
Upstairs are two bedrooms – one double, one twin. The twin room has a good view of mountain. There is air conditioning in the living area only.
The outdoor space is just the tiny patio at the rear. There is also the communal lawn outside front door.
Please note: The house is in very good condition and comfortably furnished.
BUT : There is no oven. There is however a four-ring gas hob and a microwave.
Towels not supplied. Bed linen and tea towels, yes.
The air conditioning is only in the living room.
New washing machine installed.
The patio is tiny, but fits a table and four outdoor chairs!!! You can also take the garden chairs out on to the communal garden area in front. (Very few of the houses are occupied.) You will find you have lots of privacy even out here.
All of this is the reason for the low rates!
