Casa Alta is a comfortable, four bedroom house in the village of Nigüelas offering stunning 360° views overlooking the village and the Lecrin valley with its olive and almond trees spreading out in the distance. The Lecrin valley runs between the fabled city of Granada and the tropical coast at Salobreña. The house is in the highest and a quiet part of the village with the foothills of the Sierra Nevada rising to the rear of the property providing a backdrop of dramatic beauty. Eagles fly above the rocky terrain, and you can walk among the orange and lemon groves. With its light and airy feel, balcony, roof and front terraces, swimming pool and close proximity to the amenities of Niguelas, the house offers privacy without being cut off from Spanish life. The house is well equipped with internet wifi access, underfloor heating, a private pool which is not overlooked and a games room. In summer the house, being at 3000 feet, is pleasantly cool at night. In the day there is always somewhere to sit in the shade. In winter the underfloor heating downstairs and the wood burning stove upstairs makes the house agreeably warm.

This is a holiday home that would suit couples and all sorts of families although the terraces, internal stairs and pool mean that toddlers will require supervision. The village has a couple of restaurants and several bars within a few minutes walk but those who want a more vibrant night life will find it in Granada. The village is also an excellent starting point for walks into the adjacent Sierra Nevada National Park.

The Andalucia region

The region of Andalucía in Southern Spain is famous for its romantic history. It is influenced by its Moorish past, and renowned as the home of flamenco dance and music. Andalucía is blessed by magnificent mountain scenery a beautiful coastline and a warm and sunny climate. As a holiday destination it has something for everybody.


The house is situated in the village of Nigüelas in the Lecrin valley which runs between the fabled city of Granada and the tropical coast at Salobreña. The village is ideally situated being about 30 km from both Granada, with the wonderful Alhambra and the coast and beach at Salobrena. The Sierra Nevada National Park starts at the edge of the village and is a great starting point for magnificent walking. Europe's most southerly ski resort, Sol y Nieve, is about 45 minutes drive away. The village has a sixteenth century church, many old houses two pedestrianised square and narrow winding streets. It is quiet but there six bars and two restaurants, a small daily market selling fish, meat and vegetables and three small supermarkets, all within ten minutes walk of the house. The village also has a small museum, a classical music school and a cultural centre where the mayor often pays for free concerts.
