La Casa del Viento is hidden away on the mountain side just outside of the town of Lanjaron (in the Alpujarra Mountains), which is an hours drive from Granada. I stayed here for two weeks last summer, and absolutely loved it!
I stayed in El Jardin (the casita by the pool) which is fully self contained- with an open plan bedroom (for 2), living area and kitchen, and a separate bathroom (including a bath, shower and toilet). This is one of four casita's which are all lovely white washed traditional houses, which all have amazing views!
This is a perfect place to relax, with a lovely pool area which I spent many afternoons reading my book under the shade of the grape vine covered gazebo and of course going for many swims to cool off! When I was feeling more active I went on one of the many walking tracks up and down the mountain side. I also drove further afield to explore the small Spanish villages in the area and also to visit the beach which is less than an hours drive away.
The hostess, Ann offers very reasonably priced two course meals in the evening, which on the nights I joined her was around by the pool. The local town (Lanjaron) also has many bars and restaurants to enjoy some local Spanish fare.
I highly recommend La Casa del Viento to people of any age (singles, couples or families) who are wanting a slower paced holiday where they can experience some of the less touristy aspects of southern Spain.
