Pretty detached cottage style villa, ideal for two travellers - can accommodate one extra guests or 2 children - odd night - using living-room sofa-bed. Cot available. A home from home the perfect place to relax, chill in the gardens or soak up the rugged beauty of ANDALUCIA - great touring base. English speaking representative (me!) on hand to answer any questions and help you in any way!
This traditional agricultural area with expanding tourist industry - still mainly Spanish - remains largely unspoilt by mass development. Growing sub-tropical fruits and vegetables often in large Invernaderos (plastic greenhouses) a vital part of the local economy. Fishing and tourism, secondary.
The Casita, shares interesting sub-tropical gardens with the owners traditional farmhouse Cortijo Nuevo and EL APARTAMENTO. The latter is also available for rentals (Ref: 1787) so possible to rent both homes allowing groups of 4/7 travellers maximum.
The Cortijo is nicely designed so each property has privacy and ample outdoor space. As well as many shared areas various patios and benches, BBQs & fountains to relax by.
In season pick citrus fruits and avocados for breakfast. Lounge by the Swimming Pool (shared only with any occupants of El Apartamento) - perfect spot to chill out after busy day sightseeing or relaxing on any number of unspolit beaches on this Granada Coastline.
During the day or after sunset rustle up a meal in the Summer kitchen by the swimming pool. Fully equipped for 4 travellers charcoal bbq, gas paellero, honesty fridge, sink, ample seating and sun loungers - vine covered terrace.
Well behaved and socialised pet DOGS ALLOWED, (my two waggy dogs; Hector and Dino live on site) - small additional weekly charge - please enquire.
The Casita is comfortably furnished, an eclectic mix of modern and rustic/antique, not simply a spartan holidaylet or bog standard modern apartment.
Extras to make it feel more like home include ADSL laptop point, DVDs, prints, books and fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare and cook meals.
Multi-language satellite television system - 100s of channels + BSKYB free-to-air. Woodburner in living room, cosy and practical on longer Winter lets. Plus I-pod dock in the bedroom.
The landscaped and illuminated gardens are an oasis, even in the dry Summer season. Full of many sub-tropical plants and exotic flowers for many months of the year. They provide the necessary protection against the sun - terraces and seating areas in both sun or shade.
Probably the best climate in mainland Europe - averaging over 320 sunny days a year. Snow & frosts very rare on the coast - possible to grow bananas, sugar cane and papaya on the Costa Tropical!
Keen gardeners welcome and always work to be done if you tire of sunbathing!

IDEAL TOURING BASE - CAR ESSENTIAL
The Perfect spot for Independent travellers. Enjoy the best of all worlds traditional agricultural area, sea and mountain views, peaceful yet just 5 minute drive from busy town and beach life around Motril. Not isolated along trecherous mountain tracks like many inland hill properties!
Nearest beaches, shops, tapas bars and restaurants 3kms. away in the bustling market town of Motril, including large hypermarket and daily indoor food market. Cinema, theatre & new Bullring! Motril a working town rather than tourist resort remains very Spanish and is busy year round, ideal for longer Winter breaks - when most resort towns seem to close down!
Fine road network making excursions to GRANADA, LAS ALPUJARRAS, LECRIN VALLEY, SEVILLE, ALMERIA, SIERRA NEVADAS, MALAGA, CABO DE GATA, ALMUNECAR & NERJA easy and practical.
Also good base for property searches in the area many agents and Lawyers in Motril - many puchasers stay here - laptop facility useful.
Spanish restaurant Meson Puntalon and one small bar, just 10 minute stroll to Puntalon - but, really need to centre on Motril town & Port for everyday needs.
Although final cleaning is included in our prices, we ask travellers to ensure that the kitchen is tidy on departure and all rubbish disposed of.
Swimming pool shared only with any occupants of my other holiday home on site (EL APARTAMENTO), usually just 2 adults, sometimes 4 - often none!
Unlike many property owners I practise a transparent policy regarding Reviews. ALL are published in full, not just selected 5* Reviews. NONE are deleted or manipulated to make the property appear faultless! I believe this honest approach to Reviews allows the potential renter, full access to past traveller feedback helping in decision making - plus giving the property a genuine rental history.
PLEASE NOTE: HIGH NUMBERS & LEVEL of Reviews in comparison to other properties, when choosing where to stay!
If you know your dates, BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT!
+ PLEASE NOTE - the Double bedroom is separate & accessed directly from the front terrace. The Casita has three different entrances - quirky layout! Perhaps suitable for couples rather than goups of 4.
CAR ESSENTIAL. Secure off-lane parking by the old fountain.
