Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Casa Shalimar is a beautiful villa on the rocks of the sea with stunning views, especially at sunset. The house is perfect as an artists/writers retreat,
Casa Shalimar is decorated in an eclectic, shabby-chic style,The house has been designed to be a comfortable home, not a show home... .
There are three bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, a modern, fully equipped kitchen, pool table and infinity pool to enjoy.
Park at the top and wind your way down the many steps to the gates. Open the front door and you are greeted with the feeling of being on a boat as all you can see is the Mediterranean. Change into your costume and jump from the rocks or from the steps into the sea. Snorkel and dive in the clear sea. Its claimed that galleons from Spanish Amarda sank nearby, and many divers search the bottom for gold coins.
Casa Shalimar is situated on the edge of the sleepy fishing village of La Herradura in Costa Tropical, the warmest part of southern Spain… 70 km east of Malaga, in the province of Granada.
