UK based living with my Spanish partner and splitting our time between Brighton and Salobrena. We bought the villa in early 2013 and have been upgrading it since.
Graham Startin-Field purchased this villa in 2013
We fell in love with Villa Palmeras as soon as we saw it. The previous owner was the original architect who had built it for himself and lived here for 20 years. Everything has been very carefully thought through and the layout is perfect. There is so much light in the property!
We have already updated much of the house and now have what we like to think is the perfect holiday home. The highlights for us are the outside area where we spend most of time. The pool and the views are better than we can show in the photographs and the BBQ are is just the best area to relax in the evenings with the family!
Make sure you wake up in time to watch the sunrise on at least one morning. The views to Motril are incredible.
Salobrena is the perfect location for us. It is far enough away from the expat areas and much more authentically Spanish. It is also served by Malaga, Almeria and Granada airports so there is always a good deal to be found when looking for flights. The weather is stable all year round and is the perfect get away destination.
The house feels luxurious, in a peaceful setting with great views of Salobrena, the mountains and the sea. The pool was a must to help us cool down in the heat. Finding the house for the first time is tricky, but we had a warm welcome from Dani. It is a short drive to Salobrena itself, and it's worth going further afield - we went to Pampaneira in the Sierra Nevada region, which is a fascinating place.
Graham was quick to respond by email to any of our questions, so I'd recommend the house for a relaxing holiday.
We arrived after a delayed flight but we're welcomed by Dani who was very patient and explained everything in detail.
We discovered the property was really well equipped with a whole manner of kitchen implements, pool accessories and plenty of space.
The property is a little bit up the mountain but the views are worth it. The trip to the town is only a few minutes and there is a brilliant selection of places to eat and enjoy a drink within the town and by the beach.
The BBQ area offers another place to relax as a family and has plenty of space for a quiet evening soirée.
My family and I had an exceptional visit. I forgot to fill in the visitors book but I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a more Spanish experience with the focus on relaxation and fun.
The owners we great throughout the stay, very attentive to our needs and made the whole experience seamless and idyllic.
Thank you Graham and the rest of the team for a wonderful stay!
On arrival met by owner shown around and made very welcome. Fabulous house and surroundings, pictures couldn't do it justice. House has every mod con needed and extremely well stocked with cutlery, pots pans, delf etc. One very minor issue while there and dealt with immediately and without fuss. Needed some info regarding operation of TVs system again sorted immediately. Advice given before travel proved invaluable. We were a family of 2 adults and 3 kids so plenty of room but house also suitable for any type of holiday groups. Property ideal for just relaxing and taking it easy and having a dip in the pool but if you have a car and want to site see there is loads to see and do. Easy access to shops which stock all regular brands so no problem if you want to stay and cook at the house, plenty of restaurants if you wish to eat out.
We came there for an 8 day stay in this outstanding Villa at Salobrena. Alltough we were late we were welcomed warmly and showed around getting to know everything. All facilities and beds were clean and well prepared so that we could have a holyday experience very unique. We lived like at home, undisturbed and very private. Extraordinary: Graham, the owner, looked after us and our needs very decent, but was always there via mail wen halp was needed, also by giving good advise with where to go and what to do. Also the handling of all operations through Graham an fewo-direkt was very prompt and uncomplicated. An outstanding holyday, we will come again definitely!
We have just returned from a week at Villa Palmeras and had a great time. The booking and administrative side was extremely efficient and straightforward- the owner was easy to contact and provided lots of useful information.
The villa itself was perfect for our family of 4. Inside it was airy, spacious and well equipped. Some evenings were cool (we went at Easter) and we were glad of the big comfy sofas, heating and large Apple TV. On the warmer evenings we cooked outside and watched the sun go down. The garden was pretty, views were amazing and the pool was a good size. We used the free tennis court every day and had no difficulty booking it for when we wanted.
We had not been to Costa Tropical before and all agree that we would like to go back. Salobrena is a lovely little town and Villa Palmeras provided us with a perfect base.
We had a lovely time and really loved your villa. The pool was gorgeous and it was great for me in particular, as I'm a very keen swimmer, to be able to use the larger communal pool as well. We enjoyed exploring Salobrena and the surrounding area and were thrilled to get to Granada which has been on my list of 'must see' places for quite a while.
The picture postcard village of Salobrena is situated on the Costa Tropical in the Andalusian province of Granada; it's known as the 'jewel of the Costa Tropical', the village is ideally located, on the beach, in a wonderful sunny climate, yet just 45 minutes from the historical city of Granada, and the ski resort of the Sierra Nevada. You can easily mix a ski and beach holiday.
With the Mediterranean sea at your feet and the snowy mountains of the Sierra Nevada behind you, you couldn't wish for a better combination, Salobrena is a delightful place to visit any time of the year.
The history of town dates back over 6000 years, it's privileged location and climate has attracted settlers from very early on.
There is a Moorish castle in the town, which dates back to the 10th century, and which affords some magnificent views around the area. There is also a Mudejar-style 16th century church. There have been several sites excavated in the local area with Roman remains.
A visit to the museum, within the municipal library, will tell you more about the history of Salobrena. With the help of models and visual aids, the museum tells how Salobrena was once
practically an island, before the river gradually deposited its sediment to form the rich delta that along with the climate explains the abundance of crops such as sugar cane.
The centre of Salobrena, which is built on an impressive rock, is a maze of whitewashed houses, which fall into the districts of Brocal, Albaycín, La Fuente and La Loma. Exploring the town is a lovely way to pass a day; don't take a map, just head in the direction that takes your fancy, you'll find charming interesting spots all of town. Plus you can only really go up or down in Salobrena!
