About our home

We live in the beautiful mountain village of Ojen just 15 minutes from Marbella. This is the real Spain where people live ordinary lives, the locals are friendly and welcoming. The house looks small from its narrow street but telescopes into a large home set on 4 floors. The house is quite quirky after we renovated it, putting rooms in spaces that felt right, rather in a conventional way. There is a bedroom off the hallway and the kitchen is on the second floor which leads onto a small atrium where we have a Jacuzzi. Over the Atrium I have a small painting area if there are any artists out there. We have 2 roof terraces, one which leads off the master bedroom and another which spans the top of the house.There is an outside kitchen and stunning views over the rooftops to the sea. The village Plaza is just around the corner where there are tapas bars which serve delicious home cooked food and coffee, not forgetting the Spanish wine. The narrow streets meander around the village through rocky outcrops where some houses hang on precariously. If you like to walk then Ojen has plenty of paths which will take you around the Sierra Blanca. We have horse riding locally, yoga, tennis and padel courts. Not forgetting the world famous golf courses in and around Marbella.
Shops, restaurants and nightlife are not far away so one can easily dip into the bustle of Marbella and Puerto Banus before returning to the calm of Ojen. There is a pool set in the most stunning location overlooking the village, it rarely gets busy, has a good restaurant and is more like a country club than a municipal pool. We have lived here for 18 years and wouldn't go anywhere else, although our roots and 5 of our children are back in Wales. Lesley has a son in Sydney so we like to visit as often as we can. We are happy to do non simultaneous swaps to accommodate for summer in each location.
