Newly refurbished in a rustic style this property offers the ideal location for relaxing holidays for both couples and families. Located in a stunningly beautiful area with many opportunities for walking, cycling and bird watching, exploring local villages with their Moorish architecture and plentiful tapas bars or simply lazing away your days next to the pool.
The spacious living/dining room forms a central hub to the house with all other rooms opening off. The comfortable sofas, log-burner, ceiling fan and air-conditioning make this a welcoming space during the intense midday heat of summer as well as a cosy retreat for winter evenings.
The kitchen opens off via an archway and is fully equipped with electric oven, 4 ring gas hob, microwave, large fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Plentiful crockery and cutlery plus many extras such as sandwich toaster and chocolate fountain enable you to prepare anything from a quick snack to a lavish dinner.
The master bedroom is comfortably furnished with double bed and has french windows out onto an east facing patio/balcony which overlooks the pool. A small table and 2 chairs allow you to enjoy a morning coffee in this sun trap whilst steps lead directly onto the pool should you fancy an early morning dip. The luxurious, tiled en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi bath, wc and wash basin is the perfect place to pamper yourself, relaxing into the hot foamy bubbles by candle light.
The second bedroom is light and airy, again with double bed but also having a single truckle bed under, should you require it. The family bathroom has a roomy shower cubicle, wc and washbasin.
Outside is a shady dining area, conveniently located for the kitchen, whilst steps lead down to the pool terrace which is gated to prevent unsupervised child access. Around the pool with its underwater lighting are sun beds with parasols, barbeque and a second outdoor dining spot. Why not spend the afternoon relaxing in the sun whilst taking in the amazing views, pick yourself a lemon from the tree to slice into a sundowner then linger around the barbeque until late into the evening?
The Moorish village of Válor is just 5 minutes by car or a 30 minute stroll. It perches on the foothills of the Sierra Nevada gazing out over the valley and the market town of Ugijar. An unspoilt traditional Spanish village popular with Spanish tourists.
With a population of just under 1000, the village has 9 bars all of which serve tapas and a couple of which offer a full menu. There are also 2 small supermarkets, one with its own bakery, which sell all essential shopping items including fresh meat, fruit and veg. The travelling market visits on the 4th and 19th of every month with a few stalls selling clothing, plants, nuts & olives etc. For a wider range of shops and a bustling twice monthly market (5th and 20th), the town of Ugijar is just 10 kilometres away. The open air village pool is open during the months of July and August and there are numerous fiestas throughout the year, the largest of these being Moors and Christians in September when the villagers re-enact the taking of the Alhambra complete with horses and musket fire.
You are surrounded by magnificent views of the Sierra Nevada and Contraviersa mountain ranges with numerous opportunities for walking and mountain biking on your doorstep. For the more adventurous, Mulhacen is close at hand.
Popular with Spanish tourists but as yet relatively undiscovered by other nationalities, Válor is an extremely friendly pueblo blanco and an ideal place to observe and enjoy the traditional Spanish way of life.
The house is surrounded by terraced areas with pool and sunbeds. There are two outdoor dining areas, a sunny one adjacent to the barbeque and a shady one close to the front door with easy access to the kitchen. Lots of outdoor lighting enables you to savour in comfort the long warm evenings of summer.
For indoor entertainment we supply a large selection of books, dvds, an IPOD/MP3 docking station and also, for familes (or the young at heart) a Wii.
