About Susan Bassett

This property was purchased as a retirement home for my husband and myself and a place for our family to visit. Unfortunately, my husband did not survive to retirement. I decided last year to offer my home for rent as I will only now be there during the Winter months (I live in Canada). I am originally from England.

Susan Bassett purchased this house in 2006

Why Susan Bassett chose Costa Tropical & Lecrin Valley

Hope anyone staying in my Gualchos home will enjoy the views as much as I do. That was what made us buy this particular property in the village.

What makes this house unique

Go have a go at playing petanca on Sundays and Wednesdays. It's good fun and there is a bar right there in the park.

Diese günstige Unterkunft lässt nicht erwarten, dass sie so gemütlich, großzügig und luxiorös ausgestattet ist. Für Familien mit Auto kann ein Urlaub mit Strand und Ausflügen gar nicht günstiger und angenehmer sein.

Danke. Jeder der dort Urlaub macht, wird zufrieden sein.

Very nice house in a very nice place

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for holidays. It's equiped with air conditioned in all rooms which is very important for summer in the south of Spain. It's beautiful decorated and located in a very nice place with an impressive landscape. 100% recommendable.

Très bonne adresse !

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes restés neuf nuits dans cette charmante maison entourée de montagnes et avec vue sur la mer !... La maison est très agréable, pratique , charmante et je tiens à remercier Susan de nous avoir vraiment accueillis comme des amis !... Ron et Maggie, des voisins anglais installés à Gualchos étaient à notre disposition et nous nous sommes sentis chez nous. A un quart d'heure de la mer, à Castel de Ferro, à une heure de Grenade, Une heure et demie de Malaga, l'endroit est parfait ! Le village possède deux trois bars/restaurants et a le charme de l'authentique. Vraiment très bonnes vacances ! merci encore Susan !...

Agnès (famille de cinq personnes : trois filles de 21, 18 et 16 ans)

Stunning views of the Med and mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Cool, clean and palatial with all the mod cons - very generous space with 3 roof terraces that look out over a breathtaking sparkly blue sea and purple-ish mountain ranges - a wonderful and blissful place and EXCELLENT value for money. Can't wait to return!

Many places to visit from this location. Other than local walks, nearby beach, a little further there is Granada and the Alhambra, go further up into the hills to the Alpujarras, Motril for shopping. Easy travel to these and many more places of interest.
