Full Description

Welcome to the House of the Counts of Guaro.

Built around the year 1500, this was either the 1st or the 2nd house of Guaro.
The rest of the village organically grew around it.

Before that time, Guaro was a tiny village around a Moorish castle on the hills 3 kms further. The richest farmers settled far out of the village, against a hillside shielding them against the sun.
Possibly for the need of work force they erected a small church here too... and it is here that current day Guaro started to grow after the fall of the Moors.

In 1614 Guaro was given the royal title of 'Villa'. This was done by King Felipe IV of Spain. Such title was usually for a village that had shown exceptional courage or assistance in the Christian Reconquista on the Moors.
It was at this moment that Guaro became a County and a trusted statesman from Madrid, Don Juan Chumacero de Sotoymayor y Carrillo, was elevated to Count of Guaro.

The water well on the patio still points to the magnificent history of the mansion, just as a room specifically dedicated to the curing of olives does.

When the counts left the village, some 100 years ago, the house became the cradle of all members of a Guarenian family, most of whom were born or raised here.

In the year 2000 the mansion was fully renovated.

When you enter the main house, you instantly see the first, narrow patio in front of you as well as the larger patio behind it.
On the left you have a lounge and on the right a room that was last used as a bedroom. A kitchen, bathroom and an olive atelier make this first floor complete.
On the second floor there are 3 bedrooms (2 double, 1 single) and a bathroom.
On the third floor a spacious loft.

The entrance to the guest apartment is on the side of the building.
The front door gives way to a staircase that leads to the 1st floor where this apartment is situated.
It exists of a kitchen, a lounge, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

This apartment can be reconnected with the main house, by creating a staircase to the patio downstairs.

Parking is in the street - and rather special for an Andalusian mountain village: it does not take much practise to drive to the property: there are no steep alleys.
It is in a fully flat part of the village, with grocery stores at a one minute walk, and bars at 3 minutes.
