Costa Tropical - Granada house description

Casa Puerta Azul is a charming village property tucked away in a quiet corner of Albunuelas. It has recently been restored using traditional materials. The ground floor is open plan, and the upper floors have three pretty bedrooms and a wonderful roof terrace with views out over the village. This is a great house for a family wanting to be a part of a traditional Andalusian village, and still having the privacy of the private pool and sun-trap roof terrace. There are storage heaters for winter use. For more information, please contact us for details of our web site!

Albunuelas: Albuneulas is a quiet village at the end of the mountain road. Casa Puerta Azul is found in the Barrio Bajo (lower quarter) close to the orange groves and valley. The village has a bank, four bars, one restaurant, two supermarkets, pharmacy, doctor's surgery and a dentist, two churches and a small weekly market. The nearby town of Durcal has other shops and the major stores and Hypermarkets of Granada are close by. We have found the villagers to be very friendly but very few speak English and so you will have a very genuine experience of rural Spain!

The Mediterranean Coast and other activities: The nearest beach is about 20 kms away (40 minutes) at Salobrena. Slightly further is La Herradura (Almunecar) with its bustling beach restaurants and wonderful snorkelling.

Further afield is the scenic coastline of the National Park, Cabo de Gata and wide expanses of deserted sandy beaches. Excellent walking, horse riding, cycling, tennis, diving, paragliding and skiing from December to April in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. Activities nearby include: Horse-riding, Walking, Cycling, Tennis, Diving, Paragliding, and Skiing.

Many visitors reckon that Granada is the most beautiful city in Andalucia. It is about 25 kms away (thirty minutes) and is very historic. The Alhambra Palace must be visited along with the Moorish quarter. Every year there is a music festival in June.

                      Albunuelas is one of the quiet, unspoilt villages in the Lecrin Valley, dotted around the hillsides and mountains of this area between Granada, the Sierra Nevada and the coast. It is a beautiful village surrounded by citrus groves, almong blossom and olive trees. Granada (30 minutes) with the famous Alhambra palace, Lanharon and Alpujarras (20 minutes), Seville and Cordoba (two hours. Europe's most southerly ski resort Sol y Nieve (50 minutes). The Mediterranean Coast (30 minutes).

                      Golf: There is an existing 18 hole course at Granada and an existing 9 hole course at Motril that is being expanded to 18 holes. An exciting new 4 linked 18 hole courses is being built near Padul (15mins away) and should open in 2005.

                      Ski: The skiing resort Sol y Nieve in the Sierra Nevada is 30mins away from Granada, 60 minutes drive from our house. The skiing resort is usually open from 1st December to 30th April. It was home for the 1996 World Championships. There are excellent walks to Mulhacen, the highest peak at around 3,500 meters.
