Read guest comments

Leaving behind pretty Periana you climb through olive groves, then ascend a steep track to the sleepy old hamlet of El Canuelo – with glorious views of Lake Vinuela. The highest of several holiday homes, 300m above the restaurant/bar and pool (focal point of the village) is your house, 40 years old, with dreamy terraces to the front and side. At the back all is steep, rocky and scrubby; below, steps wind down to the pool and the terraces, bougainvillea, lavender, jasmine and sea views. The lovely Manolo and Anna who run the bar welcome you, and are happy to prepare you a paella if you ask in advance. Step in to a charming sitting room opening to a side terrace, with Guatamalan tapestries, comfy sofas and old feeding troughs on show (spotless and painted!). Then the dining room and the kitchen, rustic and rural, a practical space in which to cook. Bedrooms are sweet and cottagey, one is on the ground floor, some are beamed, and all have simple furniture and splashes of colour. A laundry room adjoins the house. The wonderful hot springs of Alhama de Granada are an easy drive, as is the Water Park in Torre del Mar.

"Los alamos is a place to leave the hustle and bustle behind and really enjoy the simpler things of and catching up with friends and family over a bottle of wine. Warm days and cool nights makes it fantastic holiday conditions especially for children. The house is big enough to allow everybody the opportunity to chill out both inside and out without getting in each other's way. The top lounge area outside is a great place for a nap I found....the pool and restaurant are a great hub, very sociable but low key. A great place for all ages."

"A wonderful stay. The location is gorgeous - with stunning views down to the distant sea. Swimming pool shared by other people in this small hamlet, full of old world charm. Fantastic local bar and restaurant too. Everything you need on your doorstep. And the house is clean, comfortable and stylishly decorated. No complaints at all. Can't wait to go back..."
