Nestling in one of the olive clad hillsides of Andalucia is Los Tiros, a typical rural Spanish country cottage. It is situated in the outskirts of the small village of Fuente del Conde. The property is approximately 100 years old and was renovated nearly 11 years ago, but retains its traditional rustic charm, including ceiling beams and some original doors.
The centre of the village is a 5 minute walk from the cottage and has a small supermarket that will sell all the essentials for your stay in Los Tiros including fresh local bread. The village also has a bar and restaurant which serves food at lunchtimes and in the evenings. There are numerous local restaurants that serve good food which are easily reached by car from the house.
Los Tiros benefits from its own private secluded swimming pool an essential ingredient for those long hot summer days. This is reached by a flight of steps at the entrance to the courtyard and has a terrace with sun loungers and parasol. This area is a sun trap and has sun for the majority of the day.
Pool depth approx. 1.8 – 2.0 metres. We advise that children are supervised at all times.
The patio and terrace area is great place to eat and relax and you can enjoy the lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The tiled patio area is covered by a vine, this allows you to eat in the comfort of the shade during those hot summer days. A tiled table is available for outdoor eating and will seat up to 6-8 people. From early to late summer you can enjoy eating out from 8.00am in the morning until midnight or beyond!
There is also a barbeque area for cooking alfresco conveniently situated within the patio and terrace area.
Pick and eat the fresh fruit if you want to. There are grapes, figs and nisperos ( a small orange fruit ).
