Villa Granada 003
Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
An impressive landscape...
Located in the foothills of the spectacular Sierra de Tejada y Almijara, this charming villa is set in a landscape that is dominated by oaks and cork trees. The well-known village of Alhama de Granada is a 10 minute drive from here and you will find local restaurant at 2,5 kms. There is a large garden to include a private pool and tennis court.
The bicentennial oak in the centre of the 5000m2 garden is the eye catcher when you arrive for the first time at Casa Carmen. But there is more: from the garden and pool area there are spectacular views out to the mountains of the Sierra Tejada, a national Park area with typical Mediterranean flora and fauna where you may see deer, wild boar and other wildlife! The garden itself has a great variety of trees flowers and plants and guests are welcome to try the almonds and cherries in season. The private pool (3,75 x 6,75) is just a few steps away from the house and comes with sun beds and umbrella. A private, concrete tennis court is available for those who wish to stay in shape during the holidays, please bring your own rackets and balls. Next to the house is a terrace area with patio furniture and a barbecue for dining al fresco. Access to the house is via a flat, unmade track in good conditions, just of the road between Ventas de Zafarraya (11 km) and Alhama de Granada (8 km), the last one being one of the most adorable villages of the Granada province. The town is small, just 6,000 inhabitants, full of charm and character, and beautifully situated on the edge of a gorge. The name is derived from the thermal baths still located here, which are called Al-Hammam in Arabic. At a convenient distance from the town centre nestling in a poplar grove lining down the banks of the river (also known as Merchan) you will find hot springs. The villa can easily be reached from Malaga airport (75 km) or Granada airport (85 kms) - both cities are also well worth a trip as of the historic venues, such as the Alhambra palace in Granada.

The Andalucia region
Beautiful Andalucia is rich in history and culture. An exceptional place in Europe for its scenery and landscape, Andalucia boasts a remarkable history that is responsible for some of the most breathtaking architecture and fantastic cities.
Andalucia has an area only slightly smaller than the whole of Portugal and accounts for 17% of the whole of Spain. Its variety of scenery leads it often to be referred to as a mini-continent.
The people of Andalucia fiercely hold on to their identity as Andalucians and, as such, the culture is amazingly rich. With Roman, Moorish and Christian influences, it is home to many different styles and wonderful arts.
Granada is music and poetry –“hidden water crying”-. It is also pure monumental art and millenarian culture. This province extends from the steep peaks of Sierra Nevada , from where it reaches the sky. It is composed of many towns with impressive architecture which are reposing on the high plateau. It is also made up of reddish districts transformed by the erosion; white villages scattered on the valleys and slopes, which die on the cliffs and sand of the Costa Tropical.
The province of Granada , privileged tourist destination, where her outsider can go skiing in the winter resort of Sierra Nevada , taking a walk to the villages of the Alpujarra, visiting the last frontier of Al-Andalus to the west or getting surprised by the sight of the caves-houses. Indeed, formerly they were inhabited by cave-dwellers.
Alhama De Granada
ALHAMA DE GRANADA
This town's name has its origins in the famous baths and thermal waters, well known back in Roman times. The town is just 58 kilometres from the city of Granada. It is set in beautiful mountainous surroundings, with charming white houses, impressive as they cling to the side of a steep gorge. The town's interesting historic monuments are the legacy of the different cultures that have passed through Andalusia over the ages. Attracted by the fame of its waters, they settled in the town of Alhama. Many historic marks have been left in Alhama de Granada: from the Roman bridge (1st century BC) that leads to the thermal springs, to the intricate layout of the Moorish quarter, where you can still see the Torresolana watchtower and the Granary, an old synagogue dating from the 13th century.
You can also see buildings from the Christian period such as Santa María de la Encarnación Church, the Inquisition House, La Reina Hospital and the Caño Wamba fountain. The Moorish baths, of course, are not to be missed, with their Caliphal-style arches and vaults. They are within the Spa Resort. The track that leads to them is very attractive, running through gardens in a picturesque river gorge.
