About the Property
This fabulous 150m² house hidden in the pine forest amongst millenary rocks is spectacular in its modern design, position and for its exceptional interiors. Ensconced in nature it is hard to believe it’s luxuriousness; however this was the owner’s vision, a place of serenity and truth where guests can reconnect with nature in comfort. The house and the gardens are proof of the owner’s great talents as an artist, gardener and creator. This is the perfect holiday retreat.
The house sleeps up to eight in three double bedrooms; one of these doubles is an original Arabian tower which has been refurbished preserving many of its original features into an impressive en suite double with standard sized bed with fabulous views out to the sea and the woods. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor that lead out to the garden. For the seventh and eighth guest there is a sofa bed up from the dining area in an attic room.
The living and dining room is airy, bright and luxurious, with a plasma TV (satellite channels), HI-FI and DVD, a comfortable sofa and a chaise-longue. There is also a dining table which will seat 6 comfortably, but you have the added option of eating al-fresco on the large terrace.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with all the appliances such as the vitro ceramic hob, oven, washing machine and dryer, fridge freezer, plus you will find all of the comforts of home such as a toaster and juicer to squeeze the delicious local oranges.
The 5000 m2 gardens are shared with one other casita, however this house enjoys its own private garden, terraces, balconies and pool. There is a divine meditation garden with Balinese day beds and ponds of lotus flowers, a natural swimming pool and a fresh water spring for bathing. Leading down from the house is a trail that will bring you to what the locals call the ‘Lost Beach’, an all but private beach (nudist).
The natural pool is much like a rock pool, unlike a swimming pool it does not have a filter but water constantly passes through keeping it clean and ‘natural’. No chlorine here, in fact the water accumulates iron minerals as it passes through cracks in the rocks which gives the water a red rusty colour. It is safe to drink and of course to swim in and has some wonderful health giving components. The swimming pool that is private to this house does have chlorine.
PLEASE NOTE the large gardens are a popular event location.

“Looking for paradise? Do you want a super special hide-away? Seeking a very romantic and lovely place with extra flair, view and an extravagant taste? This is it and more than that! For us, Bolonia and its secret garden can not be described, any text or picture does not match the reality. This location you have to see – otherwise you won’t believe it. It’s even better than you can imagine!”
“Es un remanso de paz ! Puedes disfrutar de sus jardines y su maravillosa piscina. A 15 min andando tienes la playa del Cañuelo y 5 min en coche la de Bolonia. Por las noches podrías quedarte horas en el sillón del porche del jardín mirando el cielo lleno de estrellas!”
“The photos don’t do this beautiful home justice! The perfect, quiet getaway that has a short path to the beach and is under 30 minutes from Tarifa (great for a night out and some shopping during the day!)”
“Secret Garden is unique and truly beautiful. The home is very modern and well appointed with stunning views, and the gardens are a treasure – dramatic boulders surround lush ponds and trees, and of course the light is unique to the Costa de la Luz. There is a secluded and lovely path to the Playa del Cañuelo, which takes about ten minutes. We often had the beach to ourselves! We loved hiking in Los Alcornocales too. And if you are lucky enough to have either yoga training or therapy with Marisol, you will be amazed. She is a beautiful force. We look forward to returning!”
“El paraíso existe y está en Bolonia. La casa es espectacular y la dueña muy amable y atenta en todo momento. Sin duda para repetir.”
