The history of this hidden gem begins in the 50's in Kenya, where the legendary Hollywood heartthrob Stewart Granger was filming King Solomon's Mines. In love with those places, he found in this valley of 70 hectares on the Costa del Sol the ideal spot for building an estate of indescribable beauty, surrounded by completely virgin vegetation, tropical gardens and mountains with panoramic views, all completely fenced, enabling walks to explore on horseback or by car.
The cottage itself, which is reached through a long avenue lined with 30 palm trees, was designed by renowned architect Manuel Camisuli and is an amalgam of Andalusian, Arabian and Mexican influences. The main door of the sixteenth century gives access to the central courtyard and all the rooms, completely renovated in 2015. Its 11 suites with fireplace feature fine craftsmanship details, such as wrought iron decorated with rosettes or redpine beams reinforced with bamboo.
The kitchen enjoys in its dining area of a Venetian marble table, surrounded by Sevillian tiles. The lounge surprises with its wonderful roofing and the fireplace, crowned with an antique mantel, conceals a craft fence behind which you can access through a few marble steps the main chambers with a huge bathroom and an amazing dressing room with beautifully carved and painted doors. In the garden, the heated pool and jacuzzi are surrounded by a bar area.
