Las Golondrinas, meaning The Swallows was a fruit and almond farm. It was love at first sight. The bats have gone but the swallows return every year. This is a retreat for the family, friends and guests. The house is approached by tarmac road with drive leading to a place to park. There is a lovely large lounge with original beams, two wood burning stoves & the 2' thick walls provide a pleasant temperature most of the year. All the windows have screenes keeping out the moths at night. The modern kitchen which overlooks the dining room has both gas & electric provides comfortable sociable cooking with mountain views. Both main bedrooms have en- suites & there is a shower room downstairs to rinse off from the pool. The third bedroom is adjacent to bedroom two through an arch with Curtain, it has bunk beds & is a small room. There is internet on a pay as you go basis, CD player, DVD, & Video, There are two terraces by the the pool with table chairs and a hammock for sun lovers. The largeSW facing terrace has a vine & pergola for those who like a bit of shade.The property is surrounded by avocado trees, oranges and tangerines. There is a lemon tree outside the kitchen door! In the cooler months the scent from the flowering almonds is amazing. We have many birds, golden orials, Hoopos & wrens. A living home.

The Andalucia region

The Costa Tropical is in the Province of Granada and has some of the most picturesque and clean beaches in Spain. The stretches only 60km fro Rabita to La Herradura. It is known for its eco/tropical, climate which is perfect for the growing avocados, mango, nispas and one of the rare places that the chiramoya will grow. The fruit is exported all over the world. The mountains reach right down to the shores. It only takes 30 mins inland to reach the Lecrin Valley an area of outstanding beauty and home to the famouys waters of Lanjeron. It is still so Spanish and a phrase book is still necessary. The tropical Coast is protected by the Sierra Mountains where there is plenty of skiing right up to mid May. One can have skiing in morning and be back for the barbaque pm!

A day out to the Alpuharras is highly recommended with a lot of the Arabic terracing still in tact and home to the famous village of Treveles ,the highest inhabited in Spain and famous for it's hams. To the north of the region is the famous Alhambra .

Jete

Almunecar and the surrounding area is buzzing with things to see and do. It is steeped in history dating back to the phoenicians in 800BC. Then came the Romans who ruled for 700 years. In the 1970\80's The remains of the famous fish salting and fermenting factory of mackerel roe and liver was excavated. These can be seen in Marjeulo Botanical Park. This venue is also the venue for the annual Jazz festival bringing artists from all over the world. A great week of musical balmy evenings. It is a favourite resort with the Spanish. In 1526 Almunecar was given awarded it's coat of arms by King Carlos 1, depicating three pirates floating on the sea for fending off raiding Berbers. Each year they celebrate by sending burning boats out to sea and a huge firework display There is Lori Sexi Park with 1,500 varieties of birds providing a great day out for children if they need a change from the great water park. A day out to Pena Escrita National Park is a must with it's fantastic zoo, pool with pic-nic area, restaurant and walks all looking down to a magnificent view of the coast. A few km away are the beach resorts of La Herradura and Nerja and Motril. Motril offers sailing,golf and a larger town for shopping. Nerja has riding, golf and it's magnificent caves which are awesome. There are concerts there at certain times of the year. Almunecar has a Casa Cultura where English films can be seen and were classical converts are held fortnightly. The neighbouring town of La Herradura just 5km away holds the famous annual Andreas Segovia Classical Guitar competition. Another ten minutes will take you to Nerja where there are the famous caves to visit. So many pieces of interest in a small area.

"a (well) hidden gem - best of both worlds"

The house is up in the hills above the main coast. it's a half-hour drive from albufeira, but it feels a million miles away from the hectic pace of a spanish beach resort in high season (we were there in August). the neighbours are all Spanish and the valley is a mix of working and overgrown orchards full of exotic fruit trees.
The house itself is a family home, much loved and comfortable and personalised. A welcome gift was left for us by the owner, which was very thoughtful.The kitchen is small but you have everything you need - and let's face it, you're going to be eating out most of the time, no? Downstairs is a spacious lounge, but most of our time was spent out on the patio where a grapevine shades you as you gaze at the view. Upstairs are two lovely bedrooms for adults, both en suite, and one has a small bedroom with a bunk for 2 kids. Which is great, since we had friends with kids come visit us and stay the night.
There's also a plunge pool, which in August is a lovely thing to have!
From there, we managed to visit various resorts along the coast, a few trips inland to enjoy the mountains AND a special visit to the Alhambra in Granada. It gives you the luxury of choice - do you fancy a quiet day in the hills or a busy day down on the coast with nice food etc. We alternated!
Now the downsides - main one is the access road up through the valley - it's very narrow, on the edge of the hill and if you're in a RH drive vehicle, absolutely terrifying. Also, we went in August (38 degrees) and there are no fans/AC etc. so in the heat you have no option but to lie about panting (as the pool was broken when we were there, but it's fixed now!)
So that's it - nice place, excellent hideaway from the hectic beach life but near enough you can dip in whenever you choose, but the drive there is offputting and I'd recommend you go at a different time of year if you have the choice!

I would like to thank my guests for their factual review & pleased they enjoyed their holiday. I think the guest summed up the farmhouse perfectly. Yes, it is hot in August but it suits some people & the price is adjusted accordingly. Air con is on the way & will be added to the property profile when installed. For future guests the local town is Almunecar. The road is a climb & narrow in places but with plenty of places for overtaking. I can understand the apprehension for some people where for others it would not be at all daunting if you used to hilly regions.
