The Location & Scenery
Everywhere has the most amazing views across the Andulacian countryside towards the mountains of the Alpujarras (Driving Over Lemons territory) and the nearby white village of Iznate. You can relax and hear birdsong interrupted only by the goats and/or church bells. The finca is located about a 15 minute drive, through olive and avocado groves from the main E15 motorway. However once back to that motorway, Malaga airport is about 20 minutes drive. Nerja, a beautiful coastal town with the famous Balcon de Europe, is about 25 minutes drive and the beach just 5 minutes. There are huge supermarket complexes about 10 minutes in either direction. There are also many nearby villages with local markets, tapas bars etc., and some excellent restaurants are also within a short drive. There is a book in the house making various recommendations (the owners are real foodies!) The finca also provides an ideal location for exploring the Andulasian cities of Granada (with the Alhambra Palace – c.1.5 hrs drive), Cordoba (with the Mesquita – c.2 hrs drive), Seville (c.3 hrs), Ronda (c.2hrs), and Malaga (c.35 mins).
The pool area is totally secluded and there is a higher level with two hammocks overlooking the valley, surrounding hills and the white village of Iznate. Perfect for chilling out with a book and a glass of wine. The summer kitchen enables you to prepare, cook, eat and clear away all outside.
