Beautifully modernised open-plan casita, set in an acre of private land, offers modern comforts alongside antique character. Ideal for a couple looking to escape the city or a young family - travel cot and high chair are available on request. Casita Florita was renovated in 2011, bringing the comforts of home into a traditionally built Spanish cottage with a unique Moroccan / Indian style. Antique features include Indian doors and hand-carved stone windows. Elsewhere, new double glazed windows sit next to a bespoke kitchen, with marble worktops throughout. The bathroom also contains antique Spanish tiles. The surrounding land hosts many orange, olive, fig and eucalyptus trees and offers uninterrupted, stunning mountain views; of the Sierra Nevada in one direction, the Sierra Lujar in the other. There are numerous shady areas to relax in: on one of three terraces, beneath a large gazebo, in a hammock strung between trees or on an antique bed under a fig tree.

Pretty and quiet
Very pretty house with a big garden and the equipment required. We've enjoyed our break time in this area, with sunny days for this November period (25 degrees). We hope to have the pleasure to come back.
From the villa it is a 35 minute (approx) drive to the nearest beach, in Salobrena. There is a great choice of beaches running along the coast in either direction away from Motril.
Granada Airport is around 50 minutes away. Malaga Airport is around 1 hour and 3/4 away.
Orgiva is five minutes away by car or a 15 to 20 minute walk. Granada (home to The Alhambra) is 45 minutes. The local, extremely picturesque mountain villages are around 30 minutes drive up the surrounding mountains. Tibetan monastery up in the mountains, is around 40 minutes away. Beaches around 35 minutes drive towards the coast. Lanjaron, a nearby spa town with a castle, is about 20 minutes.
