IN SALOBREÑA OLD TOWN; INCREDIBLE VIEWS; NEAR BEACH, BARS, SHOPS; HEATED POOL

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.

Ground Floor: Front door leads to lobby with marble staircase leading to first floor, landing and sun terrace.

Lounge: Spacious room with two large sofas; book-cases; very efficient wood burning stove for out of season. Door leads out to side terrace and swimming pool. Steps up to open plan dining room.

Dining Room and Terrace: Indoor dining area; door out to terrace with large marble dining table which is main dining area. Overlooks swimming pool and views out to beach and sea.

Kitchen: Fully equipped including 2 refrigerators and freezer. Leads to:

Shower room and toilet;

and Bedroom 4 with standard double bed, wardrobe, and window to passage-way. (This bedroom and shower room becomes en suite and is its own enclosed area.)

Back door to passage-way.

First Floor: Bedroom 1: 5' double bed; fitted wardrobe and drawers. Views over swimming pool, barbecue terrace and the sea. Steps down to en-suite bath/shower room/toilet all recently refurbished.

Bedroom 2: Very large room with super king size bed; spacious mirrored wardrobes with shelves and drawers. Sofa bed. TV. Views to sea. Across passage-way to recently refurbished large shower room/toilet.

Bedroom 3: Twin beds. Fitted wardrobe and drawers. Views over sun terrace. (Shares bathroom with bedroom 2.)

Sun Terrace: Dining area and built in tiled bench seats in Andalusian style. Wrought iron work with flowering creepers. Views to mountains in one direction and beach in the other direction.

(NB Bedroom 4 is downstairs.)

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.

The place you must stay at in Salobrena!

  • 5 of 5
An amazing place - the website doesn't do it justice - nor does it tell you that its like being an invited guest in someone's home. Lovely touches, and real comforts - spacious enough for a large party without feeling at all crowded, but intimately cosy for a couple on their own - as we found toward the end of our stay after the rest of our party had reluctantly returned to their jobs and studies..
We had one day at the Alhambra, and one day's trip into the hills for markets and rugs - spectacular scenery - but you really don't need to go anywhere as Casa Piedra has it all! Just a trip down to the fish market for bbq provisions, or a gentle stroll up the hill to the bars or restaurants in the delightful old town in an evening to round off each perfect day.
We enjoyed a truly restorative 3 weeks and were sorry to leave. In 40 years of family holidays its one of the very few places we look forward to going back to. Highly recommended.

Fabulous Villa!

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 6 family and friends thoroughly loved our stay at Casa Piedra. The owners of this wonderful home have stocked it with everything you could possibly need for your visit. The villa is ideally situated, overlooking the beach and town below. The heated pool is a must for June weather and our family really enjoyed La Paseta, a restaurant with a view located a few steps from this home. I know it's difficult to leave this peaceful villa, but do make time for a day trip to Alhambra (book in advance!). Our party also enjoyed visiting the lovely white town called Frigliana, only a 20 minute ride from the villa. I would definitely return to this home and highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Andalucia Spain.

Owner's Response: Again we are delighted to have had such satisfied guests staying at our house Casa Piedra. This summer (2014) we have five different family groups coming from the US and these reviewers were the third. They are always great guests and very appreciative.

Lovely home with a great view!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I and another couple stayed at this great, rambling house for a week in April of 2014. Although it was a little challenging finding the place with the narrow, winding roads, it was well worth the effort. The house was very spacious for the four of us and the grounds were beautiful. We stayed in the two main bedrooms, which had large comfortable beds and lots of closet space. Both couples had very nice bathrooms with plenty of warm water for showering. There are two more smaller bedrooms which would be perfect for children. Although it was early in the season, we used the pool which was heated and had the perfect chemical balance. It was so refreshing! The views from both inside and outside the house are fantastic. The house was well kept, and the caretakers were readily available with any help we needed. The owner has a very thorough booklet with many great suggestions for restaurants to eat and places to visit. Thank you Geoffrey for our wonderful stay!

A hidden Gem - perfect family stay.

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful villa - the setting, the lovely pool, facilities, furnishings - all faultless. Lovely rooms, beautifully clean. Geraniums everywhere, crystal-clear warm pool which we spent hours in daily. Even wildlife - well the odd lizard sunning itself on a terrace. Useful information pack - tried many recommended restaurants - all without fail offered fantastic, free tapas with every drink -,highly recommend la biznaga and Casa Emilio on the seafront and in town, bar pesetas, martins, and bar Alhaja hidden away near the amazing church. Yummy garlic clams free with my tinto verano. Bread van comes every morning - 70c for a warm freshly-baked baguette. Best of all, this is a decidedly traditional Spanish town, very few tourists - heaven - take a Spanish dictionary though - although Antonio at La Biznaga speaks very good English. Nerja is only a a 30 minute drive and worth a visit. All in all, a fantastic house in a fantastic location, and all those steps are guaranteed to get you fit!!! Highly recommended. We have booked again for next May.

a beautiful house with all comforts!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for the lovely stay in your house last February. We loved the stay here; Salobrena, the beach (very nearby), pool (perfect heated) and of course, the beautiful house. It felt really like home!

Owner's Response: Casa Piedra is now an ideal out of season house with the new pool heating. We will be pleased to quote the additional cost of the pool heating according to the month of holiday. Don't forget we are the only house in Salobreña with a swimming pool - all other houses with pools are several kilometres out of town.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from our trip to Europe and I wanted to send you a quick message to say Thank You for sharing Casa Piedra with us. Our entire group was amazed at how beautiful Salobrena is and how perfect the house was for our little group. The pool was used and appreciated daily and the view from the house was nothing short of spectacular. We loved every minute of our stay and the beauty of the place more than made up for all the hassels my husband and I endured at the beginning of our trip. We will be going back to Spain no question! What a wonderful way to celebrate graduation from Nursing school and my birthday. Each and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Spain and we were very reluctant to leave the beauty of Salobrena and Casa Piedra. I suspect you'll be hearing from at least a few of us again for our next trip to this part of Spain.

Welcome to the Costa Tropical! Salobreña is on the coast about 1 hour east of Malaga airport and just 45 minutes south of Granada. This is the real Spain with no high rise development and no glitzy night life - just restaurants, tapas bars, 4kms of beaches, perhaps the odd disco and very friendly local people. The old town of Salobreña, once a Moorish stronghold was built on an imposing outcrop of rock visible from miles around; perched on the top of the hill and dominating the town from 105 metres above sea level are the 10th century castle and 16th century church. This is the 'casco antiguo', a maze of narrow roadways, white-washed houses, alleys and steep staircases. Here, all a stone's throw from Casa Piedra, you will discover the old town square with its hidden tapas bars, wonderful restaurants and a few quaint shops locked in their own time warp.

Other Activities: Quad bikes
