Villa Estrella

This fabulous house is perfectly situated, in a quiet street on the edge of the beautiful village of Alájar. This is as good a holiday location as you will ever find; pretty as a postcard, the jewel of the Sierra de Aracena.

The icing on the cake is that the house enjoys the best of both worlds. Whilst the front opens directly to the village street outside, at the rear its gardens, terraces and pool look out to verdant nature with nothing – and nobody – to spoil the view.

Just a stroll away from bars and restaurants, it is nevertheless entirely private, every bit as good as being in the middle of the countryside.

And the house does its splendid location proud, too. A traditional village property which rambles delightfully up and down over four floors, it has been beautifully restored, refurbished and updated by its English owners. The result is wonderful, both inside and out!

A real home (the owners spend about half the year here), they have completely re-styled it with exemplary good taste.

It remains faithful to its traditional country-cottage style (splendid original features have been carefully restored and retained), but is now finished to the very highest standards.

Tresvillas – the houses

The houses make up the end of a terrace and are adjacent to each other with south facing views across the open countryside; all in easy walking distance to the village. At Tresvillas you can rent all three houses as a group – Villa Estrella comfortably accommodates 6 to 8, Villa Antonio 6 and Villa Carmen 8. Or each house can be rented individually.


This group of three self-catering villas is to be found on the edge of the pretty village of Alajar located in the largest natural park in Andalucia which is situated in the south west corner of Spain.

Alajar is said to be the jewel in the Sierra de Aracena park because it is nestled under La Pena de Arias Montano a national monument on a rocky outcrop above the village dating back to the 16th century. From here there are spectacular views of the beautiful verdant countryside with cork, oak fruit and olive trees all around.

A holiday here is perfect for those who love the sun, walking, horse riding, bird watching, eating and drinking and enjoy spectacular countryside. As an ancient white Moorish hilltop village Alajar is full of interesting architecture with small narrow streets and many shops, restaurants and bars, all a short walk from Tresvillas. It’s the real Spain unspoilt by development and staying grounded in the friendly culture of the local region.

At 600 metres above sea level the altitude gives Alájar a more temperate climate than the plains below. So, although it can be warm during the day, in summer it cools off more at night than in Seville. As a result the climate supports a great variety of vegetation across the seasons. Chestnuts, olives, figs, wild mushrooms, oranges, lemons, and honey from the astonishing range of wildflowers to name just of few of the attractions that bring visitors to this part of Spain across the year.
