Casa Daimalos, along with the village house next door, has been lived in by the owners for three generations. This charming house has its own secluded swimming pool and is set on the edge of a small village, looking out across a sheltered valley planted with olives, almonds and vines, and crowned with the ruins of a Moorish castle. The village church has a tower adapted from the oldest minaret in Andalucia and a Mudejar ceiling plus recently discovered, rather worn, 18th century frescoes. The key can be found with the ladies who will order your bread
The extensive terrace area is shaded by a vine-covered pergola, and the garden is full of fruit trees and flowers, including yuccas, jacarandas, bourgainvillea, aloes, oranges, lemons, grapefruit and a pomegranate.
Inside, the large (40 sq. m.) sitting/dining room, has an informal family character, with antique furniture, an open fireplace and a library with hundreds of books: these include (normally found on the right-hand side of the shelves) a memoir called The Bottle Brush Tree, written by the owner and describing how he and his wife discovered Daimalos, plus a book of poems called Sketches from the Sierra Tejeda by John Fuller who was a frequent visitor.
