La casa y el entorno son tal como se puede ver en las fotografías, hemos pasado en familia unas pequeñas vacaciones de Navidad muy agradables y tanto Caroll como su pareja han estado atentos a todo lo que necesitábamos. Gracias por todo.
Carroll's house is a delight. The rooms are airy, the kitchen well equipped, the beds comfortable and the whole house exudes a sense of style. It feels like someone's home. Carroll and Jan live next door so can offer advice and help when needed. They are a wonderful, vivacious couple. The crowning glory of the property is the garden. In late April the citrus trees were crowded with fruit and blossom. The air was tinged with Jasmine. There were magnificent irises. The Garden will be a lifetimes work but the bones are good and Carroll and Jan clearly have the passion to create an Eden here.
After a couple of weeks travelling the main cities of Spain,
Our desire was to find somewhere secluded and full of character to conclude our trip in peace and relaxation. 20 minutes down the freeway from Granada we hit the jackpot.
Caroll was a wonderful host who welcomed us with open arms and fluent English, French and Spanish. She is a wonderful person, with a life lived and stories to tell. She is also a magnificent chef so we would recommend taking advantage of her cooking services! She lives next door on the property and so is readily available should you have questions about the area or need anything. We certainly felt like we had made a friend straight away.
The property itself is stunning, set back in the hills and surrounded by pomegranate, lemon and orange trees and 360 degree views of the hills and mountains. You simply don't get tired of gazing upon that view. Your quarters are a beautiful building desperate to that in which Caroll lives. It is equipped to handle multiple occupants so would be wonderful for a family or a group of friends. Every aspect you need is there with beautiful rooms, comfy beds, lovely bathrooms and a stunning farmhouse kitchen that was a joy to cook and eat in. Although the temperatures outside can soar, the house itself remains cool and there is always a great pool outside your window to refresh.
The area itself is detached but within reach. There are several little charming villages dotted around offering snapshots of Spanish life and basic necessities such as cafés, banks and small supermarkets. The local major supermarket (mercadona) is just a ten minute drive away back to the freeway.
It really is a prefect way to enjoy all aspects of the area. In staying here you get the serenity and peace of rural Spanish life. In one direction down the freeway you can explore the Alhambra and tourist delights of Granada. Go the other way and head towards the beach. You have the best of all worlds.
We will always take fond memories of our time here! Merci beaucoup Caroll!
Petit havre de paix un petit coin de paradis pour les amoureux de l Andalousie.
Petite maison coquette qui a beaucoup de charme et qui bénéficie d une tour d ou l on a une vue a 360 degrés sur la vallée et sur les étoiles le soir tombe.
Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour.
Caroll is a wonderful host; warm hearted, friendly and helpful. You are immediately relaxed in her guesthouse. The location is breathtaking, beautiful and tranquil. The house is tastefully decorated, down to the last detail. There is a lovely pool, wonderful garden and view of the mountains. Would be very difficult to travel without a car as it is very remote. Caroll's directions with a car were perfect. You must go, worth every penny!
Music, landscape, cooking and receving are essentials for me.
I love to share what I have the privilage to own. When I travel in a new country my first stop is at the market to feel the dayly life.
My devise is live and let live
