The house has only recently been available to Holiday Let ! ......( having been long term rented for 3 years )

So now it's offerred for flexible holiday bookings , with a minimum of 1 week ...

Situated in the gorgeous white village of Gualchos , only 5 kms from the sea, with fantastic views of the Med. and mountains !

In a region called the ' Costa Tropical ' it is otherwise known as the Granada Coast....and is very popular with the Spanish and Granadians, as it's only 1 hour approx, due south !

But now there are a quite a few ' ex-pats ' living there.....or nearby and owning holiday homes, so coming here regularly.

The house has been totally reformed , deliberately retaining a balance of authentic rustic Andalucian style with all the modern touches.

Metre thick walls keep the house cool in the summer....and warm in the ' winter ' .

Traditionally windows are small....but I had fitted larger ones so it's light inside.

You can always close the shutters if you want to keep the sun out !

Enjoy the 2 terraces....1 so private ( the Jacuzzi patio ) clothes are optional....no-one is going to see :)

In the summer heat, you may just want to use it at air temperature....about 28 C...so pretty warm, but a nice cool off !

The larger rooftop terrace is perfect for sunbathing or dining , and has stunning views of the sea and mountains to both 3 sides .

No internet in the house, but all local bars and a special internet centre ( free ) are only 100 metres away, in the Plaza .

The Andalucia region

The Costa Tropical ....

This area has Ex-pats, but is far less ' over-run ' with Brits or others, but therein lies it's appeal.

This is where you will find a corner of real Spain.

Where every bar serves ' tapas ' ( little plates of free food )

Where meals are cheap and substantial , albeit of high quality...all good ' Mediterranean Diet ' Food.

Where the older folks still take siestas, and then chat with their neighbours , sitting in the narrow ( almost car free ) streets

until late at night.

Where you will find a real welcome from friendly people .

A village where families have lived for years , generations after generations.

A way of life that is so far removed from the hussle of UK cities, the peace and quiet, may come as a huge surprise.

If you get time.....do go to Granada... Granada City a must see , is the Alhambra Palace ( the winter home of the Kings of the Moors )

It is one of Spain's and Europe's treasures....a world heritage site.

the history is palpable....the shops are amazing .....the Moorish quarter ( the Albacyn ) is unique

and like a Morrocan Souk....go to a Flamenco club.,..the nightlife is superb, and the Bodegas ( wine bars with the barrels ) reknowned.

Plus of course, you need a good 4 or 5 hours to look around the Alhambra.....it is that mind-blowing !

It's very easy to fall into the relaxed way of life.....but if you want more highlights....within a short drive , everything from

waterparks to cinema's......Chinese restaurants to Argentinian steak houses....Superstores to chic boutiques...are all within a

short hop by car .

Gualchos

Gualchos has a real history, back to ,and before the Moors made the Kingdom of ' El-Andaluz '

Gualchos is a lively village with regular fiestas, all the servies you need to hand, and only 5kms from the beach resort of

Castell de Ferro ( 3500 people ) with lots of cafes, bars , restaurants ......and a couple of discos too !

It has a weekly saturday Market....more or less everything is on offer....and of course a selection of blue flag beaches.

However, you maybe surprised at just how much time you can happily spend in Gualchos alone

whilst only 650 people live there....it covers a large area, and has lots of great walks and hikes.....some easy, some harder.

There is a lot going on here , certainly enough to cater for daily or even weekly needs, depending on your ideas .

Gualchos enjoys a unique micro-climate....it get's hot ( but there is always a slight breeze ) , but it never gets cold !

and a short trip up to the moutains will reveal little villages and hamlets still as if time has stood still ....and 45 minutes or so

you are in the wonderful Alpujarras mountains ( Orgiva is the gateway and worth a stroll for sure ) but higher up are the villages

with flat topped roofs and a thriving pure wool rug making industry......and ceramics too.

But many visitors to Gualchos stay locally....and come back year after year.

It's way of life is tremendously appealing , and there are 2 restuarants of some note in the village .

The house is only 100 metres from the main square, bar, supermarket, 3 internet cafe choices , and in summer an Ice cream / bar

yet the property itself is in a pedestrian only tiny street ( 30 metres long ) where children can play safely indoors or out !
