This is a small villa with a great pool and garden located on the outskirts of Ducal and within easy reach of Granada and the coast. It makes a great base for exploring the nearby Sierras and local towns of Granada, Ubeda and Baiza.
When checking in the owner, Rosemaria, will meet you in the village and show you to the villa, she doesnt speak English so make sure when you phone ahead that you are clear whet time you will arrive. The villa itself is well fitted out with a great supply of items has a nice garden and good sized and clean pool. The village is typical Spanish and not touristy. There are ample shops and bakeries within walking distance but we went down by car as it is a walk uphill on the way back on a narrow road. Local restaurants keep Spanish time in general so few open before 7 or 8 in the evening and some are only open Friday to Sunday but there are some great places to eat locally.
The local booking agent Fides communicates well during your stay making sure everything is OK and speaks English so is on hand if you need anything.
We loved your place, beautiful surrounding and garden
Great location, beautiful views and lovely property
We had a great couple of weeks staying in this property. The location was perfect - 20 minutes to Granada, 30 minutes to the beaches and 20 minutes into the mountains. The cottage is on the edge of the town ( easy walking distance in the morning for bread). Durcal is a lovely little town with everything you need and not at all touristy. There is a large supermarket nearby and lots of cafes.
The house is set in beautiful private, grounds with a lovely pool, outside sitting area and table and chairs. We spent most of our time outside as although the weather was hot, there was plenty of shade if we needed it. The inside of the house was quite small and dark ( it kept very cool so didn't need air con on much) though well equipped, with nice extras like herbs, washing up liquid, toilet rolls etc. Note - there was no pool/beach towels so bring your own. The upstairs bedroom is accessed up a loft ladder so not suitable for young children or elderly.
It would have benefited from a written instruction book for the house, with information on working the cooker, wifi, air con etc and maybe some hints about best places to go.
Overall we had a great holiday ( 2 adults and 3 older teenagers) and would thoroughly recommend it.
Ideally situated villa
Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Durcal which was ideally situated for the coast, Granada and walking in the beautiful hills. The pool and gardens were perfect but we felt the villa was a little disappointing. It was very dark with not the best lighting. Also the sun loungers could have done with some mats on them. We were met by RoseMarie who spoke no English (we had told Antonio that we didn't speak Spanish). There was no file in the Villa with emergency numbers, instructions re the villa, or any other information.
Lovely well appointed rural property in a fantastic location
Villa is well located for beaches and mountains, and only 20 minutes from Granada. It is on the outskirts of a small town offering all the amenities you would need, but feels secluded and private. The owner has thought of everything, from stacks of towels to a small selection of seasoning and dry goods. Everything is beautifully clean, including the pool.
Preciosa, pequeña y cómoda. Una bombonera!!
Preciosa la casa, precioso el entorno. Habría sido muy practico que en la casa se hubiera recopilado una carpeta con información práctica de la zona: rutas, actividades, restaurantes, bares...
