The house is in really good condition and it was spotless clean on our arrival. The garden is gorgeous and the kitchen is really well equipped. We also very much appreciated the flexibility of check-in and check out times. We would definitely come back if we were in the area again!!! We had great time and a lot of it is thanks to this wonderful property!
About the cottage itself. It is situated:
- to the south-west - possible to enjoy lovely sunsets with a great view
- close to the town and a supermarket, its possible to walk to have a dinner in Durcal centre
- among olive orchard - gives feeling of seclusion and privacy
- In Lecrin valley - convenient place to drive to either North or South parts of Sierra Nevada, easy access to Granada and also the coast
Finally one more thing - as someone already has mentioned in the comments, the house does not have a central heating. It is equipped with a chimney, one electric radiator, air conditioning/heater and a small electric heater. Nevertheless, from our view this was not a problem.
We were unfortunately unlucky with the weather for several days during our stay. The temperatures were in the lower teens and it was raining for multiple days in a row - very humid. Also when we arrived, the house hasn't been used for a while so it was pretty cold. To be honest, I was a bit anxious whether we will feel comfortable.
However, it took us only several hours to warm the house up. We initially got a bit of smoky smell inside the house - but this has disappeared as soon as the chimney has been heated up for several hours. Once the fire gets rid of the humidity inside the chimney, the ventilation is excellent and for the rest of our stay we had absolutely no issues and we were warm and cosy :) - so as said, from our point of view this was really not a problem :)
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely hideaway in the mountains and despite the twisty hairpin drives and cold rainy weather, we will not hesitate to book another stay should we return to area again.
Thanks for the detailed instructions
