Slow the pulse of life in a home designed for connoisseurs of peace where Moorish grace is happily married to English style. Stroll lovingly planted gardens and wooded terraces of palms, olives, and citrus where birds sing. Spread out over 6/7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, library, secluded dining areas, sunny terraces, pool.

Nearby yoga studio, tennis, pottery. Range further to discover unspoiled beaches, wilderness, hot springs. Almeria airport 25min. You can also do yoga at the retreat in nearby lucainena, and get to at least six different unspoiled beaches which are all national park protected and thus haven't been developed. Explore the crafts of the area - pottery and rug-making - in Nijar. Sleeps 8-14.

The architect won a prize for the design of the house which is split level on the side of a hill. It is surrounded by gardens that have been steadily improved since construction began in 1980, and is attractively and carefully decorated as a home.

It is a very relaxing place and perfect for winding down, with a lot of different spaces to fit larger or smaller numbers. It has views to the coast in one direction and over the village of Nijar and the mountains in the other. Many secluded nooks and crannies for sunbathing or table tennis or reading, hammocks. It is within a 30-35 min radius of a range of protected national park beaches. (Cabo de Gata.)

The land around is farmed.

The Andalucia region

The region of Andalucia has a varied history and traditions. A lot of moorish influence can be seen in place names and architecture, and in some places the way of life has changed little over time.

Almeria

The coastland around Nijar is all protected national park, which means there are at least 6 beaches within easy reach that are undeveloped and unspoilt. This lends the area a special charm.

"Hot and happy times in the Finca Del Alamo"

Yes, we had a great time, enjoying the pool, the local beaches in the neighbouring national park and the local attractions including the Spaghetti Western theme park combined with a zoo!

Overall a great place for kids to play with a charming rural aspect and a diversity of exotic flora and fauna and a perfect antidote to the dreich autumnal Scottish climes.
