I am a Spaniard living between London and Spain. I take much care in keeping my Salobreña property in top shape, spending time decorating it in a non-fussy, elegant style, using natural, quality materials and equipment. When I go back to Andalucia I like to live the atmosphere of the town, walk the streets, talk to people, and appreciate the small things that make life fun. When at home I like to relax in comfortable spaces that are clutter free and genuine. I want my guests to feel the same way when they stay in Salobreña. I have a local housekeeper that takes care of handing out keys, cleaning and solving any issues on the spot. I am always available too. When not at work, or thinking about ways to improve my property, I practice yoga, open water swimming, listen to flamenco, and read fiction.
Jorge Postigo purchased this house in 2004
In 2004 I found a town house built in the 60´s with lot´s of charm and potential. I liked the open space and the way in was distributed, with the living/cooking and sleeping areas in two separate floors. Now I enjoy renovating and decorating it to make a comfortable, spacious and stylish home in which to spend a holiday.
It is not a beach apartment nor a villa with a swimming pool, but rather a charming town house in which to feel part of town life. Comfortable & bright, it is just a 10 minute walk to the beach, and a 50 minutes motorway drive to Granada and Malaga. Salobreña itself is a small town with a picturesque Old Town, where the property is located. The Costa Tropical is much less known than the Costa del Sol, there are plenty of seaside and mountain towns, coves and beaches to discover.
We can recommend this flat without hesitation. We, a couple, with a 3-year-old son (smaller children: attention with the stairs!), spent there one week in November 2009. The internet photos and the description are very accurate, so that we found what we had been looking for: a quiet, clean, modern flat with rustic features, well maintained, practical equipment of the kitchen and the bathroom. We liked a lot the wide space of the living-room, the view over the next house towards the sea, the balcony, the neighbourhood with the small streets (note: not so easy to drive up/down, narrow and steep streets) and the white houses. I, personally, liked the details of the flat, the candles, mirrors, traveller`s photos, and the high-quality library of Spanish literature (some English books I remember, not sure). My husband and sun liked to use the DVD and CD player (take CDs and DVDs with you) After a long day excursion we were happy to sleep in beds not to soft (duvets for low temperatures provided). Last but not least, the communication with the owner worked very well. I felt very good informed. All in all, we would have liked to stay longer at Salobrena, a lively coast town (fortunately, with only smaller hotels in comparison to others), where you have a choice of shops, supermarkets, banks, and have a quick access to the pebble beach near the centre.
We really enjoyed our stay in Salobrena at Jorge's house. The property is lovely and ideally located for both the beach and the old town where you can enjoy some authentic Spanish cuisine. We also loved the really comfy beds and thought the house was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. A huge thank you to Jorge and a huge recommendation to all.
In january 2015 we stayed in Jorges house in Salobrena. Because we have enjoyed our holidays so much in Salobrena, so we came back to Jorge in january 2016. Jorges house has a wonderful location. It's in the middle of the hill in the old town of Salobrena. Here it's very quiet and the neighbourhood are spanish people and friendly. Here you can feel spanish life, we prefer. Jorges house is pleasant, comfortable, clean, warm and homely with lots of stylish details. Approx. 10 minutes walk to the pebble beach. Here are a lot of chirinquitos (beach snack bars). The communication with the owner was very friendly, quickly and reliable and also with his help calling Rita. Absolutely we can recommend this propert .Would stay here again. We had a wonderful time.
Muchos Gracias y un saludo

Perfect location to feel like you are actually in a real functioning town not just a holiday resort but just 10 minute walk to the beach, Additionally Jorge's house is very homely with lots of stylish and practical touches that make you feel at home. The kitchen has everything you need but there are lots of restaurants within a short walk that you might not use it too much. Although the biggest surprise for us was just how quiet the location is even though it is so central to everything..
Very good location in Old Town, all facilities that could have been desired were available, property was clean. Ideal location for trips to Granada, Nerja, Frigiliana, Sierra Alhamilla and Sierra Nevada. Far away from mass tourism, travelers can enjoy in their own the Spanish way of life. We can highly recommend, this property
We had a great stay at this stylish and well appointed apartment in a charming neighborhood of Old Town Salobrena. There are very good restaurants in walking distance and the beach is just a 10-15 min walk or short drive away. It's in a great neighborhood on the hillside with a lot of local Spanish people so you really feel what it's like to be a local (as opposed to being surrounded by tourists). Definitely recommend the place.
The Costa Tropical is a small stretch of coast line nestled in between the Costa del Sol and Costa Almeria, although only 60km in length it boasts some of the most beautiful coastline and beaches with breathtaking journeys along its jagged coastline enabling the more adventurous to find that perfect hide-away for soaking up some Mediterranean sun. Salobrena is a Moorish white town perched on a rocky outcrop surrounded by a sea of sugar cane fields and tropical fruits contrasting with the intense blue of the Mediterranean. The town centre is made up of several neighbourhoods built within the town walls during the Middle Ages; Albaycin, de la Loma, el Brocal and la Fuente are still maintained in their original Medieval layout of labyrinths, winding streets, passageways, arches and geranium covered windows. The unique sub-tropical climate makes this an ideal all year round holiday apartment - come in the winter months and you can sunbathe and ski on the same day.
Salobreña is connected via motorway to both Malaga (50 minutes) and Granada (45 minutes).
Other Activities: Great scuba diving in La Herradura (20 minutes drive)
Ski: The most southern european skiing resort, Sierra Nevada, is just 1 hour away, next to the city of Granada.
