Comments from guests which highlight some of the villa's attractions:
Lovely relaxing, spacious villa. Fantastic views with clear air. Great swimming pool and ideal for all the family. Brand new, well equipped and stylish villa with everything you need for a splendid family and friends holiday.
Lyn and David Williamson
Spectacular views, wonderful villa, lovely pool! A real chance to un-wind and get away from the rat-race. Highlights? The staggering mosque at Cordoba (well worth the drive), the golf in Granada, the hidden restaurant in Tozar and the ferreteria (ironmonger's) just down the road. Mr P.T.
We have finally returned home after a wonderful cultural tour of Spain. The week in the villa was splendid and restful – everything as was described in the profile; the views were fantastic and the weather simply perfect. We would definitely recommend to friends. Mr and Mrs M.

The Andalucia region
Granada was the capital of the last Muslim kingdom in the Iberian Peninsula, the Hispano - Muslim civilizaton lasting for eight centuries and as such boasts magnificent architecture and places of interest such as the Alhambra palace. The city is also wonderful for shopping and relaxing in the many piazzas which have pavement cafes and restaurants in abundance!
A half hour drive from Granada city lies the Sierra Nevada ski resort and mountain range. Spring and Autumn are ideal for walking/hiking or trekking and it is a well established ski resort for the winter months. It is a 40 minute drive from Granada down to the costa tropical coast, with Motril, Almunecar, Salobrena and La Herradura being the main resorts. The temperature in this area rarely falls below 12 degrees with midday summer temperatures rising well above 30.
GOLF: There is a new 18 hole course, the Medina Elvira in Sierra Elvira 20 minutes drive from the villa. A second new course, the Santa Clara, is just south of Granada and 40 minutes drive from the villa.
SKIING: The Sierra Nevada is approximately one hour's drive from Montesol. This is a popular ski resort, and is the most Southerly in Europe. In the ski season it can be used to its fullest extent in the morning, with a return to Montesol and a dip in the pool in the afternoon!
HORSE RIDING: for all abilities about 20 mins drive. Different packages can be arranged with stables.
Ideal for walking holidays.
PUERTO LOPE: our nearest village, has banking facilities, a mini-market, bakers, hotel and bars.
PINOS PUENTE: (10km) has a supermarket, pharmacy, shops, bars and restaurants.
ALCALA REAL: (12km), has both Lidl and Mercadona supermarkets. This is a good size town, with parks, and a weekly market on a Tuesday.
GRANADA: has a great market on a Sunday morning, near the coach station. There are 2 internet cafes in Alcala la Real and 2 in Illora (8km).
The local towns of Moclin and Alcala La Real are historic fortified settlements along the route of the Caliphs which ran between the two most important towns of Hispano-Muslim history-Cordoba and Granada. The picturesque town of Montefrio and Pinos Puente, with it's origins in Roman times, are also well worth a visit and are within easy driving distance through rolling olive grove countryside.
There is an extensive calendar of events and feasts throughout the year along the route of the Caliphs. Easter time is particularly spectacular with magnificent processions through the towns. Further afield Cordoba is a 90 minute drive north from the villa and is well worth a visit. The Mezquita, Cordoba's great Mosque dates back 12 centuries, Cordoba at the time being one of the western world's greatest cities.
