A large detached studio house situated on a rustic finca close to Motril. It has a super king sized bed (can be converted to twin beds), a new double shower and bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen plus a comfortable lounge and dining area. Outside there is a private covered porch area and guests are welcome to use the roof terrace accessed behind my house, which is also within the grounds. A perfect stopover or a comfortable, private place to return to after exploring the local area. There is plenty of parking within the grounds and WiFi included.
The local beach is only 4km and is quiet and slightly wild. This area of the coast is not mainstream tourist land but there are plenty of chiringuitos to enjoy a welcome cool drink and tapa on Motril beach. Bigger tourist centres such as Salobrena, Almunecar and Nerja are all within easy reach if you want a change. Motril town, also only 4km, is a typical Spanish town and has many shops, restaurants and bars as well as a thriving nightlife. It is steeped in history and there are many beautiful churches and museums to explore. Summer is the time for open air concerts on the beach and in town, with everything from flamenco to jazz and classical. The Calderon theatre is a wonderful place to spend an evening too.
The port, next to Motril beach, has daily ferries to Morocco with or without your car. The house is easily accessible from the new exits recently opened on the A7 and this motorway will now take you to Malaga, Granada or Almeria in just over an hour. The Alpujarra mountains with their beautiful whitewashed villages can be reached within 30mins and are a delight to explore. The Alhambra Palace is under an hour, reached by a spectacular drive, and the ski resort a further half hour up the beautiful winding road into the Sierra mountains.
Painting and walking enthusiasts are in their element with some of the most spectacular scenery and mapped walking trails within easy reach.
All in all there is something for everyone here, just laying on the beach, hiking or culture - whatever your interests! I am happy to help or give advice on local information to make your stay the best it can be!
PLEASE NOTE HOUSE RULES: Casa Azul is a non smoking environment (except outside). I can only accept 2 adults (sorry I have nowhere for extra people/children to sleep!). I do not accept pets. Guests must be aware that 2 dogs and 2 cats live as my pets on the property and are free to roam about but are not permitted in Casa Azul. Thankyou
