You’ll feel private here with no other houses overlooking you and stunning views over the mountains and other villages from several of the terraces. There are plenty of different places for eating outdoors so you can chase the sun (or shade) around the house – and a super pool for cooling off.Roam two acres of lush gardens with lawns, cypresses and palm trees; pick fruit from the trees and veg from their patch in season. You cook in a modern kitchen – not huge but with access to both the living room and the outside terrace and barbecue. You can walk to the village restaurant in fifteen minutes.The Lecrin Valley is criss-crossed with trails for walkers, and bike tours can be arranged too. You’re just half an hour in the car from Granada and masses of culture, the Sierra Nevada for surprisingly good ski-ing and the coast for swimming and boating – Salobrena has a golden beach and clear waters.
