Property description

Casa Shalimar is situated on the edge of the seaside pueblo (village) of La Herradura, in the Costa Tropical. It is the warmest part of southern Spain, 70km east of Malaga, in the province of Granada.
Park your vehicle at the top of the steps and wind your way down the many steps to the gates of the casa. Open the front door and you are greeted with the feeling of being on a boat, as all you can see is the ocean. Change into your swimsuit and jump from the rocks or from the steps into the sea. Snorkel and dive in the clear blue water.

During the Spanish Armada, it is said that a galleon sank and many divers now search the bottom for gold coins. The casa has lovely terraces overlooking the sea and an infinity pool on the edge of the rocks, which is private and secluded. Watch dolphins swimming in the bay and enjoy hours of snorkeling from the luxury of one's own house.

Casa Shalimar is a perfect artists/writers retreat. The interior is decorated in an eclectic, shabby-chic style, designed to be a comfortable home, not a show house...

You can look on Google map for La Herradura and the location of Casa Shalimar...
Google map info to pinpoint the house:
Look up Google map.
Then put in la Herradura, Spain.
Then when that comes up, put in.. Camino de la Torre. and the house is on a dangly bit of road on the left between Camino de la Torre and Calle Cala de Perro.

Keywords: Beautiful luxury house that looks like a castle, House on the rocks of the sea with direct steps to the sea.
Infinity pool, perfect for artists and writers...

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: We love the house as it is like a Morrocan castle on the sea. The sound of the water has a calming, almost magical effect and the village is just five minutes walk away. It is a truly unique property, which we consider ourselves very fortunate to own and has also provided much inspiration for one family member, who has written more than a dozen published books while staying at the house.

Why Almuñécar, Granada, Spain:
The house's close proximity to the sea makes it a dream property. It has all year round sunshine. The village is fun and even has a lovely market in the centre. It is close to the historical city of Granada. It's less than an hour from the airport. Basically, it ticks just about every box you could imagine.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
THE SEA IN THE BACK GARDEN
