Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in La Herradura - Casa Musse

Luxury 4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Elevated Home With Sea And Mountain Views. Sleeps 8

This generously-sized and semi-detached holiday home in a secure gated community is ideally suited to families and small groups and sleeps 8 persons in comfort, space and style.

Elegantly furnished in an eclectic mix of antique and modern, the home has three levels comprising 3 double bedrooms (master with marble en suite); a 4th bedroom/media room perfectly suited to teenagers (with 2 large single beds, chill-out lounge, TV and media facilities); a separate bathroom servicing the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms; a guest toilet and powder room adjacent to the large living area; a separate formal dining room for sophisticated entertaining; a reading area with comfy reading lounge; a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen; and laundry facilities.

The home has two sun-drenched terraces overlooking the sea. The main terrace has extendible awnings for shade in peak summer and is equipped for alfresco dining with a large gas-operated grill and outdoor furniture.

On-street parking is readily available.

Elevated Location, Stunning Views, Local Amenities: Located high on the headland overlooking La Herredura (the horseshoe) Bay and adjacent to the renowned Cerro Gordo National Park, your holiday rental home is positioned at the very heart of the Costa Tropical in Granada Province. From the two large private terraces you will enjoy unsurpassed views of the Mediterranean Sea and the surrounding coastal mountain range of Cerro Gordo - perfect positioning for a cocktail at sunset or a lazy alfresco breakfast in the sun.

At the base of the hill lies the historic village of La Herradura, which is a favourite destination for Spanish and international holidaymakers seeking an unspoilt haven for seasonal beach and water sports activities, hiking trails, horse riding, recreation facilities, and stunning natural attractions, complemented by a range of speciality and convenience shops, cafés, chic restaurants, and lively bars and nightclubs.

Fresh local produce and seafood markets, cultural outlets and pure Andalucian style are beckoning!

Holiday Activities Galore- Sun/Sand/Golf/Boating: Your holiday destination will be everything that you hoped for, with a large communal pool and tennis courts and the extensive nature trails of the Cerro Gordo National Park all just a short 100m walk from your front door.

Discover private seaside coves and beautiful beaches with reserved dining and relaxation facilities along the rugged coastline of the magnificently unspoilt Costa Tropical. Enjoy pristine diving and snorkelling locations in the Marine Natural Park; world-class charter boating and marina facilities at the nearby Marina del Este (5km drive from La Herredura); or subterranean caves nearby the resort town of Nerja (10km).

Crave the hustle and bustle of larger urban towns? It's a pleasant drive to Almunecar (6km) and along the coast road through Salobrena (22km) onto Motril (33km). Wish to venture further afield? Enjoy the thermal waters of Alhama de Granada (84km), the majesty of Alhambra Palace in Granada (84km) or go winter skiing in the Sierra Nevada (87km).

Getting to La Herredura to Start your Holiday: The vast majority of inbound tourists to the Costa del Sol and Costa Tropical regions land at Ruiz Picasso Airport near Malaga (83km from La Herredura). Airport shuttle coaches deliver passengers on a high-frequency timetable to Malaga city centre and the central bus terminal, for a very nominal fee. Inexpensive local coaches run to regular daily timetables from Malaga central bus terminal to La Herredura and return.

Once you arrive in La Herredura, it's a short 3 minute taxi ride to the house. Taxis are freely available in La Herredura and reasonably priced.

If you are driving your own vehicle, travel along the A-7 Motorway and take exit 305 to La Herredura. Total travel time from the Malaga Airport is about one hour

For those first-minute needs when you arrive, there is a small supermarket on the beach-front to the western end of La Herredura, where you can purchase everything you might need. Many other speciality shops, cafés and eateries are located along the beach promenade.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Greg & Lynn

We spent a fabulous family holiday at your house in La Herradura in August - thankyou! Everything at the house was above and beyond our expectations. The location was fantastic - a great mix of Andalucian style, fabulous bars and restaurants in the village, beautiful beaches, amazing sunsets, and views from the terraces were nothing short of outstanding.

We thoroughly commend this property to any intending holidaymaker! It was great value, a perfect environment with great facilities including two pools and tennis courts, and in the house was everything you could ever need. The furniture was tasteful, the beds were super comfortable and there was three floors of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy the holiday. The kitchen was well appointed and we enjoyed several nights on the terrace with fresh seafood from the village markets and a few cocktails under a wonderful full moon over the bay.

We will definitely be interested in coming back next year!

Thankyou

Good quality accommodation - fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at villa in Aug 2013 with another family - 4 adults and 4 young kids. The villa has everything that you would need and provided us with plenty enough space. The communal pool is lovely (fantastic view needless to say) and well maintained and was never that busy regardless of the time of day.

The best bit about the villa is the location - stunning views over the bay and easy access to the beautiful coastline between Herradura and Nerja. Herradura itself was very relaxed despite it being August and ideal for an evening drink or meal (car definately required however!)

We recommend both the villa and La Herradura for a relaxing family holiday.

Fantastic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 week family holiday in August. The house was well equipped and spacious - plenty of room for us to spread out. The views across the bay, as in the photos are stunning. We even had a wonderful firework display one evening on the horizon. The location is fantastic for exploring but you do need a car because although the beach is local, it is quite a climb down even if you are very fit.

Lovely large house in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in La Herradura in this lovely home. The house is fully equipped with everything you need for the duration. Everything has been thought about right down to the corkscrew! We were with our three grown up children who had a room each and with two terraces and two1/2 bathrooms we had loads of space - hugely important with children of any age. One of the thing We most like was the peace and quiet. Not too much traffic and a really relaxed atmosphere. It's family oriented and has a real Spanish feel rather than a tourist resort which we loved. After a hard day snorkelling we chilled on the terrace most evenings with a barbecue, salad and a glass of something - doesn't get better than that! Local produce is amazing and easily accessible from the local food market on the seafront from early until about two o'clock.

If you fancy a bit of shopping - local markets are our favourite and there is one in Almunecar, just 5k along the coast road, every Friday and Sunday. There are lots of local craft stalls - every evening in the square at la Herradura and also in Almunecar. We also visited the fabulous Alhambra in Granada - only an hours drive away.

Many thanks to Greg and Lynn for the use of their beautiful home!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from Russia to La Herradura for a family holiday. The house was just perfect! We were comfortably able to accommodate two couples and the children.

We enjoyed being able to have the choice to go out and explore this beautiful area of Spain in the sun or relax and do very little in such a comfortable house.

I've been recommending this house to my friends and I will certainly be back.

Car: recommended

In one of the highest seaside vantage points overlooking the horseshoe bay of La Herredura, (the tourism gateway to the Costa Tropical), our house is adjacent to the Cerro Gordo National Park and offers magnificent views of the nearby mountain ranges and expansive Mediterranean sea views.

The unspoilt, Andalusia-style village of La Herredura lies between the coastal resort town of Nerja (a holiday hotspot, famous for its subterranean caves) and the historic town of Almunecar (founded by the Phoenicians over 3000 years ago) with its cobbled streets, a Moorish castle and busy urban centre .

The shoreline of La Herredura forms one of the most attractive bays along the southern coast of Spain, with its two large natural promontories, the Punta de la Mona and Cerro Gordo, protecting a beautiful 2km-long sandy beach.

Easily accessible for visiting tourists, La Herredura is just 70km east of Malaga, from where coaches to La Herredura depart regularly. Granada is just 85km north.

Golf: The nearest golf course is Los Moriscos Club de Golf located on the beach front near Motril, some 25km to the east of La Herradura. With 18 hole course, driving range, clubhouse and restaurant facilities the course was founded in 1974 and has a well established membership. The course is relatively flat terrain with two lakes and is rated at Par 70 with an overall length of 5702 metres from the men's tees. All rental equipment is available including electric carts. Green fees are approximately Euro 40,00 for 18 holes and Euro 25,00 for 9 holes.

The Baviera Course, designed by respected golfing professional Jose Maria Canizares, is an 18 hole course characterised by wide greens and unsurpassed views of the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. The Baviera Course is located at Caleta de Vlez, some 32km from La Herredura. The course is rated at Par 71 and has an overall length of 5,609 metres from the white tees. Green fees are approximately Euro 55.00 for 18 holes and Euro 35.00 for 9 holes.

Other courses are located in Malaga, some 80km to the west of La Herredura.

Ski: The ski areas of the Sierra Nevada National Park are a winter wonderland which is easily accessed from La Herredura. Interestingly, at certain times of the year, it is possible spend the morning snow skiing and then drive back to the coast for an afternoon on the beach, due to the unique geography of the coastal region that forms a micro-climate insulated from extreme cold.

The Sierra Nevada ski fields are located a short distance from Granada, which is approximately 80km from La Herredura. All equipment for skiing and snowboarding is available for rental at the ski fields.

Quiet streets and the proximity (100 metres) to the fully fenced, resort-style pool and tennis facilities ensure the safety of young children and the quiet enjoyment of our guests. Facing south, the area enjoys the very best of the sub-tropical climate of the Costa Tropical. Balmy summer evenings are spent sipping cocktails or dining alfresco on the terrace, as the moon rises to light up the tranquil seas. In the days ahead you can enjoy the wonders of the outdoors, hiking along rocky shores, through the mountains or frolicking in the warm waters of the Mediterranean. Restaurants, bars and cafés abound in the village just a few minutes away and active water sports facilities are aplenty from the main beach. Find a secluded, private cove..... paradise found!
