Lovely little house in a fantastic location

4 of 5
The house is small but very comfortable and relaxing. Inside, there's a kitchen/dining room leading to the lounge. The lounge has a large sofa and plenty of books in a number of languages. The bathroom has a good shower, but water dribbles, rather than flows, from the sink tap. The bedroom has a bed (no point in commenting, as different people like different types of beds) and storage for clothes - nothing more, nothing less. There's even a roof terrace where you can dry clothes - the views from here are amazing. The only negative thing about our stay was the neighbours, who could be incredibly noisy into the early hours of the morning. Unfortunately, the house is not well insulated against sound. The obvious solution is to live like a local and keep the same hours - sleep in the afternoon, and stay up all night. The village of Nijar is fantastic; it's a great place to be based for excursions on foot, or by car; the surrounding countryside and coast is expansive, sub-desert, and extraordinary. The locals are very friendly, but you'll have to be prepared to speak Spanish. (My Spanish was very limited, but we got by OK - and now it's slightly less limited.) The village also has plenty of small supermarkets for food and the fresh produce is good and cheap. The local pottery is cheerful and makes good gifts.Everything shuts from 2pm to 5pm, then opens again until around 9pm. There are lots of cats and dogs in the village. Most of the time its too hot for them to do anything other than lie around, but sometimes turf wars become audibly apparent. Sometimes the donkeys and the roosters join in. Just sit up on the roof and enjoy it all - it's pretty quiet otherwise. I have no hesitation in recommending the house, the village - everything. Given the chance, I'd be straight back there.
