​With its deep terracotta earthen colour and dark blue shutters,your first view of La Herreria sitting majestically above its surrounding vineyards, will set the scene for your holiday. Entering into the spacious hallway with terracotta floors and colourful paintings, the Moroccan courtyard welcomes you into its embrace. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor. Bedroom 1 with double bed, white painted wardrobe and bright blue walls is flooded with light from two picture windows. The pretty en-suite bathroom with green and grey tiles has a shower cubicle, ceramic sink and loo. Bedroom 2 with antique twin beds has lovely wooden furniture and views across the gardens.  Bedroom 3 has a delightful painted king size bed – the crisp white bedding contrasts with the terracotta floor tiles.  These two bedrooms share Bathroom 2 with walk in shower, sink and loo.

The smaller of the two living rooms is on this level with its squishy blue sofa, comfy armchairs, attractive furniture and soft furnishings. The open fire is perfect for “out of season” holidays (our logs are free of charge). The oak dining table is extendable and sits up to 8 guests. Antique furniture and lovingly collected art, fabrics and wall hangings decorate the house throughout and Simone’s love of horses is very much in evidence. Solid oak doors lead onto the gardens.  The fabulous well equipped kitchen makes cooking a joy with two large cookers (each with 6 hobs) and glorious tiled worktops. There is a large American type fridge freezer and all the pots and pans that you could possibly need. The separate utility room holds the crockery and cutlery and there is, of course, a large wine rack which you can fill with our organic wines!

Upstairs is Bedroom 4 – the Master Bedroom - with its wow of a view! This bedroom has an antique double bed, masses of wardrobe space, a pretty French designed wood burning stove  and smart TV. The spacious en-suite bathroom has a walk-in shower, ceramic sink and loo. But the star of the show is the fantastic terrace with a pergola for shade, comfy armchairs and a table for drinks or morning coffee. There are breath-taking views across the surrounding vineyards and orchards towards the swimming pool.

Back to ground level, steps lead down to the additional living/dining room with 4 huge picture windows which run the length of the room. You will feel that you have wandered into a beautiful conservatory/medieval banqueting hall where you can all spread out.  Finca La Herreira is a house that works equally well for smaller (using the cosy upstairs living and dining room) or larger groups. The gigantic fire provides warmth in winter but also houses a BBQ and roasting spit. The comfy sofa, charming pink armchairs, quirky sculptures, huge plants, original paintings and a large dining table will bring a smile to your face. Double oak doors lead onto the terraced area surrounding the large pool.  There are two further bedrooms on this level – Bedroom 5 with a king size white metal bed and Bedroom 6 with sweet twin beds.  These two bedrooms share a bathroom, and both enjoy French Windows leading onto the gardens.

The whole of this extensive area is fenced, gated and alarmed and you will feel that you have this wonderful, unspoiled region just to yourselves with the only sound being that of birdsong.  There is a delightful patio off the upstairs living room with bistro table and chairs, pizza oven and built in BBQ. This leads onto the paddock and stable block (perfect for those guests who were lucky enough to bring their horses with them).  There are spacious wrap around gardens surrounding the large pool which has steps to the shallow end and a ladder into the deep end. There are olive and palm trees and of course you can pick a lemon for your gin and tonic.  Pretty flower filled plant pots add to the charm and the wooden pergola off the larger terrace provides shade in summer. Some of Simone’s collected sculptures decorate the gardens and from here you can look up towards the decked area at the top of the hill where you can enjoy a cocktail whilst watching the sun go down.
