It sleeps 7 people in comfort (+ a baby or toddler up to 3 yrs sleeping in the travel cot). 2 bathrooms, large living, kitchen/ dining room. All rooms are well-lit with windows and blinds or shutters. There are two roof terraces - on the 3rd floor the large terrace has panoramic views of the town, castle walls, or out towards the sea and hillsides. Enjoy breakfast, sunbathing, a glass of wine or dinner outside. Please be aware of our HOUSE RULES: Do not make noise on the upper terrace after 23.00. This disturbs our neighbours who have the right to complain. PLEASE NOTE: The hilly streets of the Old Town mean there is no access for the disabled or anyone who has difficulty walking. DESCRIPTION OF THE HOUSE A cool entrance hallway opens onto the ground floor, where you will find the bedrooms (this makes them cooler and darker for sleeping). The two main double bedrooms have king-sized beds, with new firm mattresses, double wardrobes with long mirrors, bedside cabinets/tables and lamps. These bedrooms overlook the tiny street and have two windows each, with shutters, external blinds and bars, so you can leave windows open quite safely. Adjacent are the two bathrooms, which are internal. One has a walk-in shower and the other has a small bathtub, with shower over the bath. Both have washbasins and toilets, bathroom cabinets, plug for razors/ toothbrushes and extractor fans. Beyond the bathrooms are two smaller rooms. One has twin-beds, with new firm mattresses, a bedside cupboard, hanging alcove, and lamp. The other has a single/daybed which can be made as a double. Travel cot, high chair, and our own built-in storage cupboard. These two rooms at the back of the house enjoy skylights, that can be opened or closed, and are shaded by tailor-made blinds. The black granite staircase leads up to the first floor, where you see the door that takes you out to the lower and upper terraces. First, go into the beautiful large living+ kitchen/dining room. This room has two windows that open onto the street with shutters and exterior blinds, so they can be left open for ventilation. The living area has a large, grey 3-seater sofa, 3 reclining chairs and one fold-up chair for extra seating. A solid wooden coffee table, small bookcase (with a few books available) and a TV bench. NEW 49' Smart TV and 10 mb Wifi lets you view Netflix or Amazon films. There is also a dvd player with a choice of UK dvds available. The dining table seats six, with 6 matching chairs, and it can be extended to seat 8. The lovely new fitted white kitchen has ample cupboards and black marble worktops, which might inspire you to try some Spanish cooking. It's fully equipped with oven, 3 ring ceramic electric hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge with freezer compartment, sink, drainer, toaster, kettle and coffee maker. The crockery, cutlery, glasses, and cooking pans are all our own, quite an eclectic mix with everything you need to enjoy some fine dining – if you can keep away from the tapas bars and local restaurants! An iron, ironing board, vacuum cleaner and 2 floor fans are available. For winter rentals there is an electric radiator and a pellet stove in the living room, which really heats up the large space on those chilly winter evenings. The door to the terraces has a stable window that can be left open as there are bars. On the lower terrace, there is a sink, outside lights and space to dry clothes, towels and swimsuits on the portable dryer. A new suite of rattan-style furniture and a storage box for the cushions, this provides a more shady place to sit outside. Going up the metal staircase, there is the expansive upper terrace, with rattan-style table, glass top, matching 4 chairs and other picnic chairs too. 4 sun loungers with cushions, and a large pergola style parasol to protect you from the sun. The views are spectacular and the atmosphere totally relaxing. PLEASE NOTE: We only rent to guests 25+ years (and their children). Property Managers, Gordon & Louisa, will be in touch before your stay and on departure. They provide a Meet & Greet service on arrival to show you around the house.

The house was located on top of the hill and the access with car was no possible, also difficult for older people. However it was very nice and very well equipped.More

I'm happy you enjoyed your stay in the house. The renovation was only recently finished and all the furniture is brand new. It's a shame you felt that the hilly streets were perhaps difficult for elderly people. We make a point of explaining that in...More

About the neighbourhood
Exploring the area Inland from Almunecar lies the Alpujarra National Park, where you can tour the pretty white villages, and visit the famous centre of water source Lanjaron. Granada, the city and home of the world-famous Alhambra Palace, is just a 50 minute drive along a new motorway. Try to book your visit to the Alhambra online in advance, as it gets very busy in the high season, but well worth the visit. Golf courses. Horse riding. Skiing in the Sierra Nevada, are also nearby. Almunecar coastal waters offer great water sports and scuba diving is very popular. La Herradura and Salobrena are typical unspoilt bays and there is an exclusive 500 berth marina at Marina del Este. Nerja is a pretty village along the coast, famous for its spectacular stalactite caves. For the adventurous, ...
