Special Adalucian summer experience: sleep outside in a double sofa-bed on the terrace, safely under the mosquito netting. You can see the stars and feel the soft breeze.
Rural place between the mountains and the sea.
This piece of paradise has beautiful views and a secluded garden with many tropical fruit trees, a large pool and a huge terrace with a great view.
It takes 15 minutes to reach the beach, 40 to Granada.
Use of kitchen.
This rural retreat is situated away from the busy life, in the middle of a beautiful valley. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature.
The house is a small traditional stone building with a flat roof. It is surrounded by a large ecological garden. From the large terrace you have a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and orchards.
The swimming pool (7x11 m) with sunbeds around it in a sunny open area, is in the lower part of the garden, where a stone wall gives you privacy and flowering plants and fruit trees surround you. Two shades places with sunbeds and a swinging chair make for a natural shady retreat.
In the garden you will find a lot of different places where you can relax or work, with hammocks, a large table and chairs, lazy sunbeds. The area around pool is full of flowers and herbs. Fruit trees and grapes grow everywhere, and in every time of the year there will be some fresh fruit. The last part of the garden is the huge organic vegetable garden. Here unusual vegetables from all over the world are being grown. This will give you the chance to try out new exotic foods.
There is a parking space at the other side of the house.
The direct area offers great walking possibilities, see the travel guide for more information about the area and things to do.
You are welcome to use the open plan kitchen. You can use a private fridge (which is situated outside on the porch).
The pool area and the terraces are available to you.
There is reliable wifi.
Interaction with guests
If you would like me to, I will gladly answer questions, give tips about the local things to do and to see, but if you like your privacy I will of course respect that completely.
As long are you are content, I am happy too.
Other things to note
This is a remote place, so you will need some means of transport, or I can drive you to the busstop or the beach, at additional small cost.
As everywhere in the country, there will be dogs in the area, you will sometimes hear them barking at night. Do bring earplugs if you don 't like that.
The last kilometer of the road is partly unpaved and sometimes rocky. Not suitable for low city cars. It is possible to park near the normal road, but out of sight, near the house of friends, and visible from the terrace. We'll drive up with my car.
The nearest shop is at least 5 km away, so it is advisable to do shopping before arrival.
The last 1,6 km of the road are only partly paved and sometimes uneven, the last part is the worst. If you whish to, you can park 400 meters before the house (next to the house of a friend). I will of course help you with your luggage in my car. If you have never driven unpaved mountain roads and you would rather not try to, you can also park before the little road starts, and drive up with me.
The house is simple and rustic, the luxury consists of location, the views, the garden and the large pool, as well as the possibility to sleep outside.
It is possible that the dogs in the area will bark at night, especially when the fox or the wild boar are on the go.
Please, do not take vegetables or fruit out of the garden. Whenever possible, it will be shared with you.

My place in Southern Spain is a great opportunity to share with other people. Some come as volunteers through workaway, some come to recover from a burn-out, and some stay as holiday guests.
In Spain I live in the very South, in a remote place in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, in the Netherlands I live in Delft.
Things I like to do are tending my organic garden (with help), sketching, and improving my Spanish. I love both nature and culture and spending time with family and friends.
