Stunning panoramic vistas of rolling sierras and high mountains encircle the three and a half acres of terraced gardens, sweeping lawns, orchard and woodland of this charming country retreat, a picturesque rural idyll amidst the picture-postcard scenery of The Alpujarras.
Behind a glistening whitewashed façade and foliage-strewn dining terrace a delightful interior welcomes with a wealth of typical local features and an inviting ambience. Attractive ceramics, carved wooden units, wood beamed ceilings and terracotta floor tiles provide character, whilst air conditioning ensures comfort at all times of the year.
It is however in the ample grounds that you will no doubt spend much of your time. Here you can relax or play on the extensive lawns that spread beyond the house in a series of terraces, forget the cares of city life whilst lounging on the ample gated terrace surrounding the fourteen metre swimming pool and finding the spot from which you can see mountains to the north, east and south. Depending on the season, you will discover oranges, lemons, figs, pears, plums, almonds, walnuts, pomegranates and herbs from the herb garden for flavouring your cooking.
When you can prise yourselves away from these enticing surroundings you will find that you are ideally placed for walking, cycling and riding through the scenic valleys and hillsides of The Alpujarras or the higher peaks of the Sierra Nevada which beckon from the north. For all amenities and some good local restaurants the provincial capital of Orgiva is just 2.3km away.
Terraced grounds mean that young children will require close supervision.
