Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms. Can sleep 3 people with top bedroom leading out onto our terrace

The house is licensed and has been approved by the Spanish Tourist Board for holiday rentals (registration number VTAR-GR-01113)

This charming and comfortable house has the most perfect location in Lanjaron in the Alpujarras, Granada with free INTERNET - a quintessentially Spanish, no-through-traffic, sleepy plant-filled plaza (parking nearby). From the balcony, one can hear birdsong and the splashing of the water in the grotto-like fountain below and from the sunny terrace, enjoy the mountain and sea views. Both pretty bedrooms have comfortable beds (queen size in the main bedroom and the second bedroom has a large single as well as a single 'sofa-bed', actually a very comfy armchair if not being used as a bed in the top bedroom. In the spacious yet cosy sitting room, with its pretty 'pueblo' fireplace, one can watch TV, listen to cds or enjoy our library of very good books - both novels and non fiction.The bathroom offers a hydro-massage shower unit (hairdryer supplied as well as hand gel and shampoo). The modern though rustic style fitted chestnut kitchen has a four ring hob, stainless steel fridge freezer and is fully equipped. Breakfast or the evening meal can be had on the roof terrace, while enjoying the views. You might also enjoy a bbq on the terrace. The house is distinguished by its successful fusion of stylish design and sympathetic restoration of traditional architecture, with tasteful attention to detail and colour.

The terrace has a small bbq, sunchairs and a mosaic table where you can enjoy and while away the hours - a great vantage point from which to watch all the too-ing and fro-ing down below in the square.

Lanjaron and Casa Santa Ana are ideally located to explore not only the best of the Alpujarras but also the Mediterranean coast and Granada. We have both the med and what the coast has to offer and the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains all within an hour's drive from Lanjaron.

The village boasts an Olympic-size municipal swimming pool with a bar, close by (also another public pool attached to a local hotel & very nicely landscaped). There is, in season, plenty of night-life and bustling cafes in the centre shaded by magnificent ancient plane trees and music groups including flamenco who come and entertain people while sipping a nice glass of wine.

At ones doorstep, you have easy access to wonderful countryside and spectacular walks. Should you want to treat yourself, the nearby historic Balneario (Spa) offers a range of treatments and massage. Massage treatments can also be arranged for you at the house.

For those without a hire car, Lanjaron has daily bus services to the coast and to Granada (only 35 k away) as well as to the mountain villages like Pampaneira, Bubion and Trevelez and a local taxi service is also available.

The town has a number of small supermarkets, a local indoor veg, meat & fish market, banks as well as ice-cream parlours, bars, cafes and restaurants. There are many 'specialist' shops selling local produce such as the locally cured ham, various cheeses and other cold meats, jams and wines - all of which are only a stones throw from the house.

There are many other activities available locally - horseriding and mountain biking, wild flower/herb tours, massage treatments and the village now has a 'water museum' and a 'honey museum' (local honey is also a speciality of the village). The Spa is open 10 months of the year and one can have a variety of treatments there including sauna at any time.

At the house over the winter months guests can enjoy our 'pueblo' style open fireplace (good for chestnut roasting!) creating a very cosy atmosphere in the sitting room. Wood is available for sale at the local petrol station.

The owners are long term residents who are very happy to assist in any way possible. We personally meet our guests on arrival to hand over the keys and answer any initial queries/questions.

About Mary Meade

My husband and I have lived in Lanjaron for 30 years (we are both Irish) - our two children were born here and are bi-lingual. I have been teaching English to both children and adults in the village for 24 years and continue to work at the school in the afternoons. I also work as a part time administrator at an alternative holiday centre in a nearby village (for the last 23 years). Brian is a massage therapist whose practice is mainly based at the same centre. We enjoy a high degree of integration in the town and are known by most of the villagers. Our home is a few kilometres up a country track where we cultivate fruit and olive trees and enjoy the tranquillity of country life.

Mary Meade purchased this house in 2005

Why Mary Meade chose Lanjarón

We built and desgined this wonderful little house for its perfect location. The neighbours are very proud of the plaza and their plants which they lovingly maintain and think we have done a wonderful job of designing this house. This is a place where you can get a great insight into an authentic Spanish pueblo where the concept of community is still alive and well. And of course you will meet the ladies of the plaza while on holiday with us..They tend to speak only Spanish but are so friendly and try and adapt to 'communicating' with all our guests. The plaza Santa Ana also has it's very own Saint Ana and her nameday is celebrated every year in the square on 26th July.

What makes this house unique

I never tire of the views onto the plaza and the sound of the running water - it's quite picture-perfect. The house itself has a very cosy feel to it and has everything you might need for easy living as well as the fact that it's also very central.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Muchas gracias a ti. La vivienda es fabulosa y la estancia perfecta. La Plaza Santa Ana es de lo mas bonito que he visto.

This was a lovely little town house in a very pretty square in Lanjaron. Perfect for exploring.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 9 days in February staying at Mary's very pretty little house in Lanjaron. The weather wasn't great but the location was perfect for exploring the beautiful little mountain villages and was also ideal for visiting the coast. Mary and husband Brian were extremely accommodating and the holiday overall was perfect. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the area around Granada but doesn't want to stay in the city.

A comfortable and cosy home in a tranquil, stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Mary's house in Lanjarón. The house was well equipped with everything we needed. There are lots of grocery shops in the town so we had the option of cooking for ourselves in the evenings. We particularly enjoyed soaking up the sunshine on the roof terrace in the afternoons.

We took our bikes and it was a perfect base for exploring the area, with fantastically quiet and smooth roads leading up into the mountains and down to the coast.

It should also be mentioned that there are a number of really well sign-posted walks leading from the town of varying lengths and difficulty. We did two of these and both were spectacular, taking us high above the town with amazing views.

Lanjarón itself is full of character and was a good place to potter around in the afternoons. Should you crave the buzz of the city, there are regular buses to Granada, meaning you can visit without having to worry about parking. The bus journey itself was pretty scenic too!

Lovely house in great setting

  • 5 of 5

A very well appointed house in a quiet corner of town. The house is well equipped with everything you might want for a comfortable stay. The photos do not do it justice. Mary was an excellent host, and nothing was too much trouble. The area is great for walking, with plenty of walks from Lanjaron, and also further afield. The town is a nice size, with plenty of shops. Cannot comment on restaurants as we did not eat out. If you want a glimpse of Spanish life in a little Spanish town, then this is for you.

Not enough time

  • 5 of 5

We only booked one week for the October half term holiday, to get some late sunshine before the winter sets in (in England). We had a fantastic week and only wish we could have stayed another week or more.

Mary made it very easy to book the property and provided good information about Lanjaron and how to find the property. Mary is a lovely friendly lady and called in at the start of the holiday to make sure we had settled in and make sure any problems were sorted out.

There is so much to do and see both in the local area and further afield.

It only takes about 40 minutes to get to the Alhambra in Granada and just over one hour to get to the high Sierra Nevada mountains for the more adventurous.

There are plenty of well signposted walks in the area and the town is well stocked with Restaurants. The House is well located in the town centre but away from the main road on a peaceful little square. The house was clean, tidy and well equipped with good internet connection, British TV channels, books and dvds, so plenty to do if you stay in on an evening. There is a nice roof top seating area with nice views over the rooftops to the mountains beyond.

We really enjoyed our stay and feel like there was so much we didn't see and do that we should come back in the future. Thanks again Mary.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Casa Santa Ana is beautiful, Mary and Brian are friendly, helpful hosts, and Lanjaron is a perfect base from which to explore the Alpujarras or the coast.

We had a great fortnight here - helped by the mobility that a hire-car provides. When the hire-car became unexpectedly immobile, Mary took to the phone and - in perfect Spanish - proved what a formidable asset she can be for he guests.

We would thoroughly recommend a visit!

The spa town of Lanjaron with its picturesque Moorish castle has a lively ambiance and all the amenities. It boasts several public swimming pools, tennis courts and a fragrant eucalyptus park. The dramatic countryside/ National park on its doorstep is perfect for walking. Local activities include mountain biking, guided walks, horse riding, rock climbing, Spanish lessons, yoga classes, spa treatments and massage. Lanjaron, famed for its mineral waters, healthy environment and the longevity of its inhabitants, is known as the 'Gateway to the Alpujarras' offering easy access to high mountain villages. Equally accessible is the Costa Tropical with golf courses & beaches. Inland, discover Granada's lively flamenco scene & the spectacular Alhambra or ski resort at the Sierra Nevada.

At home follow the natives and pass the time in one of the many bars or restaurants or watch life go by in this traditional, unspoilt, authentic Spanish village where locally grown produce is still sold from the houses. Many restaurants in the village serve 'menu del dia' each day at lunchtime (a 3 course meal for between 8/12 euros often with a drink included) if you don't feel like cooking at home - evenings are good for drinks and tapas. You can visit the artesan shops in the village selling local produce including serrano hams, cheeses, confitures, wines etc as well as locally made wickerwork baskets.

Orgiva, 7k from Lanjaron is the administrative centre of the Alpujarras. It has been settled by a large number of expats of all types to the detriment of its local character. Lanjaron by contrast, with its wonderful location, is an authentic "pueblo" community with a long tradition of being a welcoming and attractive spa town.

Other Activities: yoga, massage, healing treatments, cyclng, horseriding, walking

Ski: the ski resort - Sierra Nevada - is very close to Granada city itself and only an hour's drive from the village of Lanjaron - you can combine both an authentic village experience with a skiing holiday.

Lanjaron's location offers the most convenient access to Granada, Lecrin Valley, the coast and the Alpujarras (Pampaneira, Capileira, Trevelez etc) and is only 6 minutes by car to the motorway
