This elegant and comfortable house has the most perfect location in the picturesque plaza of Santa Ana in Lanjaron in the Alpujarras, Granada, Andalucia 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, comfortable sun loungers with mattresses 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 (Hotel Andalucia) & very nicely landscaped). You can purchase a day ticket for either pool and then come and go as you wish throughout the day. 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 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.. and we live just a few minutes walk away from the square. If we happen to be away then we arrange everything for our guests smooth arrival in detail beforehand.
