Welcome to Hacienda Bolero

Rural Tranquility with whispers of old spain

Presented in the vision of its Artist owner, Hacienda Bolero exudes understated sophistication and elegance in a spacious home that feels much wiser than its years.

Its vine-wreathed exterior gives way to a charming Andalucian courtyard patio, where fragrant lemon trees contrast with bougainvillea blooms and gnarled olive trees.

A sun-soaked terrace provides the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee, while the south-facing garden overlooking evergreen hills was just made for an afternoon swim and snooze.  After all, this is what Hacienda Bolero is all about: rest and relaxation in an idyllic rural setting, with the amenities of Marbella only a short drive away.

Timeless elegance teamed with modern sophistication

Inside Hacienda Bolero, high ceilings and picture windows create a free-flowing space where sunlight cascades across timeless interiors.

Statement works of art catch your breath. Some are modern pieces by the owner herself, and others, like the over-sized canvases of a vibrant bolero jackets, pay a fitting tribute to the Spain of old.

Despite these sudden splashes of colour, serenity prevails throughout the house with its subdued and calm colour palette and cool stone floors.

A private oasis encircled by woodland views

There are plenty of hidden corners outside at Hacienda Bolero to slip away and enjoy some solitude.

At the bottom of the manicured garden, a small seating area with table and chairs can be transformed into a romantic backdrop for a candlelit dinner for two, with views of the swimming pool and cork oaks as a backdrop. Stay long enough and you may even glimpse the wild deer who come inquisitively alongside garden.

Upstairs, a sun-splashed terrace offers panoramic views from surrounding mountains to the sea, and sets the stage for an idyllic al-fresco breakfast. Meanwhile, the traditional Andalusian patio at the entrance to the villa conjures visions of pre-dinner cocktails sipped amongst lemon and lime trees.
