Live the Bohemian life
Rent a Bohemian home in Algeciras!
There is so much to see here. All credits go to the owner. He is a real artists. He creates, designs, decorates and collects art. That’s why the house is full with paintings from different artists.
You simply need more eyes when you are in this place.
He smoothly combines furniture of different feel, styles and ages.
You find modern paintings, black and white photographs, recycled art. It’s a fusion of antique, chique, bohemian, vintage and much more.
Being here is being away from everything and just be in your own bubble.
The house is totally fenced, has lots of outside space, a swimming pool, a ‘relax, eat, drink, listen to music’ corner with an old iron table with huge castle chairs around it and an industrial lamp above it hanging in the tree. A perfect place to hide from the sun.
I just have fallen in love with it. Places like this make me dream about the bohemian life with artists where you philosophise over some bottles of wine, good food, some swimming and then back to your art work.
Yes I almost forgot to tell, he also organizes events for artists to inspire and get inspired.
I think I am going to paint….or write…..or shall I start making portraits?

Art and Inspiration
It is an understatement to say that Fernando’s house is rather different. It is gorgeous despite being a basic rural house.
Fernando is a lovable host with a lot of passion for being a host. He now runs the management of the house that once was of his parents.
There are a lot of history and stories to tell about this place and Fernando is eager to tell you all about it.
He is a real organiser, having a lot of experience in organising events, parties and of course al gallery owner also art events which he organises now in the house.
Fernando lives in the house next to it with his 2 sweet dogs. He will respect the privacy of the guests not entering the house. He only takes every now and then a dip in the pool.
Tranquility in an spacious house with lush garden ande swimmingpool
This countryhouse has a lot of land around it. ( 4000 m2)
The house counts with 3 buildings:

- B&B – Disco – Chill Out stone Yurt (accessible for guests)
Outside is 2000m2 land/garden with a swimming pool, an outside terrace, 2 WCs, relax areas.
The house is in the middle of nature, very private. The temperature is less than those of other rural areas being located in a valley and close to Arroyo de Botafuegos. This way you don’t have to deal with the inmense high temperatures that normally the south of Spain knows.

A sitting area with a fireplace. There is also a kitchen (40m2) with a fireplace,
Usually Fernando lives in the other house which is totally independent.
The only shared service is the swimming pool and the garden although Fernando respects the privacy of the guests.
Take into account that it is a sandy bumpy road to the house.

Something different, authentic
‘Fernando’s house is rather different. It is a real rural house, complete with concrete floors, somewhat unreliable infrastructure and an unpaved access road. This being said the place has incredible assets. The owner is an art gallery owner so you are surrounded by live art as well as antique items of various sorts (from random riding equipment to antique muskets). There is a disco space that is really a mongolian yurt made out of stone …. very beautiful. The garden is extremely beautiful and peaceful, it has eucalipts, wild olive trees, palms, fig trees (with tasty figs) and quince apples as well as a nicely size and invaluable pool that our kids enjoyed enourmously. Fernando is a fantastic host, beyond the ususal juices and beers we found in the fridge he even cooked us an enoumous paella. We did have nice evening beer/sangria chats. Gorgeous Tarifa beaches are about 24 minutes drive on a fantasic coastal road that rivals Pacific Coast highway. There is also no wi-fi so the kids read and played in the pool. In brief if you are looking for a generic “you can be anywhere” property do not rent this. However if you are ready for a really interesting autentic experince, this is the place. In some sense this is what holiday homes should be about’.
