  • Peaceful, secluded, unique house in the mountains.
    5 of 5

    This really is an out-of-way place to stay ; after just a week we came away refereshed and thoroughly rested. The house is a very calm space, with a minimum of 'modern comforts' but nevertheless really comfortable with thoughtful touches - traditional tableware, luxurious seating, a splendid wood fire, hot spring water to wash in, nothing plastic! No internet or telly, but ample entertainment with friendly geckos, birdsong and fascinating views. Lots of books, games, maps and info available about this remote region. During the day the terrace is alive with bees and birds, the smell of lavender and ripe figs. At night solar lighting creates a miniature wonderland in which to sit and watch the bats and the bright stars. We enjoyed walking in the valley, through the almond groves, exploring terraces and ancient acequias. We saw ibex, birds of prey and many rare and aromatic wild plants. The mountain looked different every day with changing light and dramatic clouds.There is some farming going on, the sound of sheep bells, and terraces of vegetables, but at dusk everyone goes home and you literally have the whole of the valley to yourselves. The silence, fresh mountain air and delightful plunge pool, with accompanying ( rather decadent !) day bed, all combine to create a perfect retreat. Nicky is a great host, taking the time to meet us in person and guide us up to the property. The table was piled with bowls of fruit, nuts and honey, ecological wine and flowers from the garden. We could not have been made more welcome. If you like silence, a sense of space, and relish the opportunity to explore a unique and ancient landscape, then you'll enjoy it here. Places like this are hard to find!

  • Cool and quiet on hot days
    5 of 5

    If you want peace and quiet in a house then this is the place to stay, particularly when the weather's hot as the inside temperature is wonderfully cool. The house has all modern conveniences that you would want and is in easy walking distance of the city centre if you want to enjoy the shopping and tapas bars. The Saturday morning market is great for fruit and veg. Further afield, there are the super gorge walks at Monastril and Castril as well as the more obvious places to visit such as Granada and the Sierra Nevada
