Just 1.3km from the picturesque cove of Cala del Aceite, Casa de las Higueras sits amidst a lovingly tended garden of wide lawns and colourful flowerbeds, dotted with shady palms and the mature fig trees after which the house is named. Encircling the house like an enticing oasis, with abundant foliage lining their boundary, these attractive grounds provide a pleasing sense of seclusion and delightful areas for outdoor living: an appealing selection of dining terraces offering varying aspects, extensive lawns for children’s play and occasional seating for restful repose.
Inside, an equally welcoming ambience prevails within cheerful rooms which display tastefully coordinated colour schemes, attractive artwork and some unique features to catch the eye, including a circular sitting room and an elegant shower room that captures the shapes and style of Morocco.
From this enviable location, in an area of coastal homes between the seafront village of Fuente del Gallo (3.5km) and the coves of Roche (2km), guests can enjoy a pleasant walk along an unmade sandy path to the sheltered sands and summer ‘chiringuito’ (beach bar) of Cala del Aceite, just 1.3km away. Only 200m further, paddle boarding and some typical fishermen’s bars can be found in the port of Conil, whilst for those not wishing to venture far for dining out, the nearest restaurant is 200m from the house.
