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.

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 screnes 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.

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 .


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.
