Beautiful, traditional Andalucían village house. Sleeps up to 8 with 4 bedrooms (3 with double beds, one with two single beds), 4 bathrooms (2 are en-suite). Stunning views of Africa, landscaped terraced gardens, and private swimming pool. Dine out under the stars, sunbathe surrounded by tropical plants, and enjoy the view over the valley with eagles and falcons wheeling above. The property is used regularly by family members and is, consequently, a real home complete with beautiful furniture, pictures, books, board games and children’s toys.
Peaceful location below a castle in a stunning mountaintop "Pueblo Blanco" with narrow, winding streets and whitewashed houses, within walking distance of all village amenities, including shops and tapas bars. The village is in the middle of two spectacular Nature Parks, “Los Acornocales” and “Sierra de las Nieves”, and about 30 km away from the sea. Ideal for hiking, nature, tennis, swimming, tapas bars, restaurants, supermarket and banks.
