A traditional farmhouse set in wonderful mature gardens with palm trees and shrubs. The main house is full of character with that old cottage feel, beamed ceilings etc. The entrance leads into a small hall with doors leading to two ground floor bedrooms the master with an en suite shower room. Another door leads into the kitchen diner, this is open plan with a wood burning stove for the winter evenings. There is a rear door leading out onto a partly covered al fresco dining area, ideal for hot summer days. Also on the ground floor there is a small snug area with fireplace, this is currently used as a study.
Stairs lead to the first floor where there is a large dual aspect living room with beamed ceiling, the window affords views over the surrounding countryside, a set of French doors lead out onto a balcony which affords views over the garden and pool area and towards the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range the balcony then leads along to another terrace for alfresco dining or sunbathing, this is very private and not overlooked. Back to the landing area there is access to the family bathroom and a double bedroom, again with window overlooking the garden and swimming pool.
The separate casita has three bedrooms, one master and two singles along with a full bathroom and a shower room, the living area is open plan with a kitchen and dining area leading through to the sitting area, French doors then lead out onto a covered terrace overlooking the garden.

The Moors lived until the end of the 16th century in the Alpujarras. We not only still use their water channels and water deposits, but their original arabic names too. A proposal has recently been submitted to declare the Alpujarras a UNESCO world heritage site.
Hiking is pure pleasure here. It takes a 20 minute car drive to reach the borders of the National Park of Sierra Nevada. You can watch eagles circle in the blue skies, see ibexes fearlessly cross the cliffs above you and feel part of the magnificence of untouched nature all around.
