4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
Salobrena, Province of Granada, Andalucia
The house is a traditional cortijo (old country house) which I have sympathetically re-modelled in a traditional Spanish style ... stone walls, tiled floors, a wonderful thatched roof in the dining/sun room with many fine features not usually found in modern-built properties, such as the large open fire in the lounge. There are full-height opening doors and windows with shutters throughout the house giving plenty of ventilation, and each bedroom has a ceiling fan ... all these features make the property cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Local food is just fabulous and Kate can help you get what you need immediately. Close to a lot but far enough away not to...

We visited this villa last year as a party of 8 friends! Kate was a fantastic host who gave us lots of valuable info for our stay and she took us to the most incredible nature park with waterfalls! This villa was perfect in every way! Salobreña itself is also a spectacular area hidden away fro. The commercialised areas of...

From the first email to our departure on Saturday Kate is the perfect hostess and made us feel welcome and comfortable. The villa really is more lovely than the photos suggest and...
