Escape with friends or family to a local Andalucian town, with sweeping views of the sea and the Sierra Nevadas. You'll find our bright and airy casa for up to 10 people full of charm, in a quaint village of white houses and bougainvillea.
Our casita is located in the heart of the whitewashed hillside village of Salobrena. This is a wonderful place to experience local Andalucian life.
We are based in Sweden full-time and come here for sun, ski, tennis, golf, seafood, flamenco and the warmth of the locals! We feel right at home here and hope you do too.
Some details about the house. It has five bedrooms & 2.5 bathrooms (one on each floor), and sleeps up up to 9 people comfortably in beds, plus the living room sofa that folds out into a double bed for an additional 2 people.
We have kept the space as bright and airy as possible. All furniture is new, from 2012, and the interior is stylishly decorated with neutral colors but with lots of Spanish touches.
The house itself is located just below the main square in the old town and next to the charming Al Haja tavern. Cars selling bread, vegetables, fruit and eggs pass by in front of the casa during the week - all fresh from the local farmlands of the Costa Tropical.
As you enter the house, you will find two bedrooms on the ground floor, one with two twin beds which looks onto a small square and another which has a wide single bed. On the next floor is a brightly lit living room which gets flooded with sun in the morning. It has a dining table for 10, French doors and a balcony perfect for long breakfasts as you watch people in the village pass by below. On the same floor, you will find a fully equipped kitchen which was remodeled in 2014 and a washing machine, plus a bedroom with bunk beds. Another floor up, you have two more bedrooms - the master with a double bed (160cm x200), a balcony with stunning views of the coast and a lighthouse, and another bedroom with two foldout single beds. Follow the spiral stairs up top and you have the roof terrace, which has 180 degree views of the mountains and sea and catches sun all day. Here you have sun chairs, a table with chairs, a bbq, a small fridge to keep your beer and wine chilled and lots of potted olive trees!
Internet access is important to us, so we have secured good Wifi throughout the house (incl the roof terrace). There are also speakers for computers/mobiles and a TV/DVD with some international channels.
Our casita is located 10 min by foot from the beach and a one hour drive to Granada where you can visit the world-famous Al Hambra or head on up to the slopes for skiing at Europe's most southerly ski resort!
I am a California girl (with Taiwanese roots) living in Stockholm with my Swedish husband, Tomas. This part of the Mediterranean reminds me a lot of California, which is probably one reason for falling so much in love with this part of the world! I am an avid traveler, a journalist and a foodie. I avoid tourist traps and seek out local flavor anywhere I go.
Mia Shanley purchased this house in 2011
Mu husband and I hunted for the perfect vacation home to escape from the long Swedish winters. We stumbled upon Salobrena and fell immediately in love with its beauty, charm and authenticity. We love everything about this house and come here to unwind and soak in the sun.
Buscábamos un alojamiento tranquilo pero que nos pudiésemos mover sin coche. Este ha sido estupendo. Todo es como se indica en el anuncio y la comunicación con los dueños ha sido permanente y muy fluida. No le podemos poner ningún pero a la estancia. Esperamos volver a disfrutarla en el futuro.
Un sitio encantador y situado en una zona espectacular. La terraza quita el aliento, es una pasada. Una casa moderna y a la vez clásica, con personalidad, donde no falta de nada para pasar unas vacaciones de 10. El comedor me ha gustado mucho por que es muy espacioso, y nuestro dormitorio arriba no se quedaba atrás. Al lado está la plaza del antiguo ayuntamiento, donde hay un restaurante llamado La Botica en el que se come muy bien, y son muy enrrollaos. Felicidades y gracias Mia!
The house is so nice, so well furnished and equipped, and has an extraordinary feature: its roof top terrace! The view is breath-taking!
The rooms are very nice, and so are the washrooms and the kitchen is simply wonderful!
If you are driving, you will need to have a small car and be careful since the streets are very narrow, but it also adds to the charm of this city build on a little mountain. Well located between Malaga and Granada. The residents are very nice.
There are also excellent restaurants near-by the house.
It can become a little warm in the house if the weather is hot, and the villagers are sometimes a little noisy. But a wonderful overall stay.
Thank you very much Mia for your hospitality, and all the infos and recommendations. It has been a pleasure.
In the old town, we love La Traviesa for its gorgeous modern food with fabulous views and flamenco (Mondays) and Pesetas for its fish stew. Head to Martin's for a cold beer or Alhaja next door for a mojito or Malaga wine. On the beach, do not miss La Bahia's paella and fried baby squid - yum! Granada is only 45 minutes away and offers the incredible Alhambra palace. Wander the winding streets of Albaycin and then head for some tapas on Calle Navas.
