Salobrena Villa Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms, sleeps 8 plus baby. NEW: pool heating for 2013
Casa Piedra is the only house in the old town with its own swimming pool. Pool heating is now offered from Easter 2013 at a small supplementary charge. It is a unique architect designed property, built in the late 1960's and located high in the old town of Salobreña. There is nothing to compare - ALL other similar properties are located out of town - a car drive away from all the many amenities which Salobreña has to offer. Although there are houses all around, Casa Piedra is very spacious and private, set in its own hillside garden with a large tear drop swimming pool, avocado and palm trees, several terraces and abundant tropical shrubs and plants. The views are spectacular. In one direction you see Las Alpujarras (foothills of the Sierra Nevada) and in the other you look down to the shimmering waters of the Med and Salobreña beach. It will take you 12 minutes to walk down to the beach - much less to local bars and restaurants in the old town.

The Swimming Pool and Garden: The swimming pool is being heated from Easter 2013. It has a maximum dimension of approx 9 metres and is approached down a small flight of steps. The depth ranges from approx 4'9' to 5'9' - there is no shallow end although the steps down allow the possibility of a gentle immersion if required. Gates, as a deterrent for small children, are installed around the house in strategic locations to fence off the swimming pool and open spaces. (Please enquire regarding charges for swimming pool heating.)
The house has six terrace areas with masses of pot plants. At the front door there is a cool shady terrace which looks out to the mountains and valley towards Motril. Above the garage there is a terrace for table tennis or sun bathing. Outside the lounge there is a pretty sun terrace. Below the swimming pool there is a shady terrace for barbecues and from which there are views to the town and out to sea. There is a double hammock on this terrace for siestas. The dining terrace and upstairs sun terrace are described above.
