CASA PEQUEÑA: a charming cottage style villa, enjoying one bedroom and perfect for couples searching for a tranquil romantic getaway. Hidden away in the gardens of a traditional Andalucían farmhouse (Cortijo Nuevo), lovely countryside location and just 2kms from the rugged Mediterranean coast and many diverse beaches. Enjoy the best of all Worlds; relaxing sub-tropical gardens, yet just a 5 minute drive to bustling market town of MOTRIL and the beach life it enjoys! Property being at sea level benefits from a wonderful climate (probably the best in mainland Europe), mild Winters and often a sea breeze during the long hot Summers - not an isolated cottage in the hills where access is often problematic.
Agriculture is more important to the local economy than tourism and the area has many large greenhouses producing all manner of salad crops for export to Northern Europe, sub-tropical fruit orchards dominate the landscape too.
The cottage is just 3kms from the centre of Motril town. An ideal touring base for the whole of Andalucía with excellent road networks, yet hidden away in lush tropical gardens - regularly described by guests as an oasis or haven. Granada city and Alhambra, less than 50 minute away driving through stunning mountain scenery.
The swimming pool and Summer kitchen terrace is shared with any guests staying in EL APARTAMENTO, another 1 bedroom holiday home hidden in the gardens.
Casa Pequeña has plenty of private outdoor space too; including a roof terrace with sea & mountain views and a large ground floor terrace with private BBQ. In addition there are many other terraces and communal areas in the gardens - the gardens were established and designed many years ago with privacy in mind. Sun or shady areas and many scented plants - keen gardeners welcome!
A unique property, ideal for single travellers (writers or on retreat) or couples searching for something different - area remains traditional and Spanish.

The Andalucia region
COSTA TROPICAL - this Eastern end of the Costa del Sol is known locally as the Costa Tropical. Unspoilt by mass tourism with a more rugged beauty than it's more famous neighbour. Here discover wonderfully quiet beaches and coves, Spanish character and probably the best climate in mainland Europe. Winters are generally mild with the protection from the mighty Sierra Nevadas behind the cottage. Excellent skiing/snowboard runs from November to April, just an easy 75 minute drive through spectacular scenery. Down on the coast an average of 320 sunshine days a year - often possible to lunch in the garden during December!
The local area has so many attractions for the independent traveller: of course GRANADA City with it's famous Alhambra and cathedral, essential to visit at least once. Also spend time in the nearby white pueblos of the LECRIN VALLEY and LAS ALPUJARRAS, wonderful walking and hiking available. Or just wander along the Granada coastline; beach resorts, Salobreña, Almuñécar, La Herradura, Nerja and Calahonda are all minutes away.
Alternatively, many travellers staying here find it difficult to leave the confines of the exotic tropical gardens. Simply idelling away days and long evenings; relaxing, reading or resting by the swimming pool - even helping with garden chores if keen!
MOTRIL - 3kms or a five minute drive away is the commercial capital of the area. A lovely busy Spanish market town with every facility and amenity to make your holiday fun. The modern tourist office beside the large American park will guide you on an historical tour of it's sugar cane past. There are many shopping areas in town, tapas bars/restaurants (excellent sea food down in the port area), all sporting facilities including 18 hole golf course and Olympic size pool.
Remember ferries leave daily for trips over to Morocco and Melilla - you can watch their movements from your private roof terrace, great with a glass of Rioja!

Casa Pequena is a most amazing tranquil place,if you love nature and dogs this is the place for you,my husband and myself stayed for 3 days,and we were made very welcome by Patrick and his dogs.there was a welcome pack on our arrival,everywhere was clean and cheerful,especially the beautiful gardens which you could spend all day in and still see different plants,and also listen to all the different creatures especially at night,if it gets too hot you can cool down in the pool and have your drinks in the poolside fridge,or even a poolside bbq ,you dont really need to go anywhere else but if you do it isnt far to go into Motril where there is always something going off,we will def be going again .
Delighted that you found Casa Pequeña to be a comfortable, clean and tranquil holiday base. Yes, the gardens are rather special, pleased you relaxed in the sun with the dogs ok. They always welcome company and returnees, looking forward to your return in the future.

"romantic guy with blue mind and pink heart;)"
cool and lazy place.plants.. plants and..dogs:)around plastic houses wit white powder dust.Patric is crasy romantic guy with blue mind and pink heart. for tall people:im only 165cm and the bed was enough , but is really short.spain size..
Delighted you appreciated the ethos of the casita and enjoyed pottering and helping with the numerous flowers and plants. Yes, the bed is a standard Spanish double from the 19th Century (recent mattress though!) carved wood with footboard so not ideal for long people! If over 6 foot tall perhaps choose my other rental home here (El Apartamento) also listed with Tripadvisor with many posive reviews too. The gardens are so lovely: long balmy nights in Summer, occasionally travellers have been known to sleep outside under the starry skies or on the roof!

"Tranquil surroundings to get away from it all."
The aim of our short stay was to go and chill out for a short break. This was achieved from the moment Patrick opened the gates to his beautiful oasis. Casa Pequena is a beautiful mix of traditional (even if a bit quirky in its lay out) build with modern facilities. The casa is equipped with everything you need for a self catering stay and we recommend the luxury welcome pack on your arrival. Patrick is very respectful of your privacy but also around if you need him. The dogs are just lovely and friendly. Hector took a liking to us and would often sit in the front room with us during siesta time. Just wish we were sat by the pool with a chilled drink letting time pass on by... Perfectly located for exploring the nearby areas of interest. We spent most of the time in and around the gardens and casa private terrace. Looking forward to a return visit.
Pleased that you enjoyed your short stay here. Looking forward to welcoming you both back for a longer trip - the gardens are indeed very relaxing!
