El Delfin

'Amazing Andalusian house in an astonishing spot''

(1 Reviews)

This superb two-floors Andalusian property overlooks Playa del Cañuelo, the renown unspoiled beach in the heart of the Nature Reserve of Maro-Cerro Gordo. The house enjoys spectacular views on the shore, the Mediterranean sea and the surrounding cliffs, hills and coastline up to Málaga and beyond. And as here schools of dolphins can sometimes be spotted patrolling close from shore in this underwater reserve, it seemed natural to name the house from the iconic animal.

The large building has a special history, deeply anchored in this area, just like its massively thick walls. During ancient times, environment and surveillance guards have resided here with their families, as the house enjoys a highly privileged situation in monitoring whatever occurs along the coast. The current owners have refurbished the property into a wonderfully fitted holiday house. It is now divided in two totally independent and large properties, each with their own terraces, gardens and parking areas.

Inside, all is thought to offer the visitor a maximum of comfort. On the terraces and gardens, the diverse sunny and shaded areas, the profusion of ornamental plants and flowers, and the majestic line of palm trees form the background for an inspiring time in an unique, inimitable place.

Down the house, Playa del Cañuelo is a 400m large beach with sand and small pebbles. This is one of the very last unspoiled spots on the Andalusian coast and the habitat of a rich protectd wildlife. From the house, it is not uncommon to spot wild goats, foxes, boars, chamaleons and a huge variety of birds, some rare. Further the gorgeous cliffs and creeks, clean waters and rich sea life make of this area a praised destination for snorkel and scuba diving.

With no doubt, El Delfin is a destination one cannot forget!
