A peaceful Moorish retreat, dating back over 500 years and tucked away in the mountains but close to the beach. Lujar is the only pueblo with sea views on this coastline. Free use of beautiful pool, tennis courts and football pitch in the village.

The space

The Casita is a lovely village house decorated in Moorish Andalucian style.

There are two bedrooms, one double bed and the other with two twins. There is also a double futon in the sitting room. The house has one bathroom.

There is an open sitting room, fully equipped kitchen/diner with a small dining table and breakfast bar seating four. It has a small breakfast terrace with table and awning and a spiral staircase up to a large sun terrace with shaded areas, hammocks, sun loungers, cacti and an amazing view of mountains and sea.

There are fans and radiators in all rooms for all seasons. It has a DVD player and free wi fi.

Parking is a few minutes walk from the house - paths are steep as house is formed out of the mountain. The village communal swimming pool, tennis and basket ball courts and football pitch are a five minute walk away. The pool is open June until September.

There is a door in the apartment and a gate on the terrace that link the casita to the house next door called Casa Azul. These are locked when the two properties are occupied separately but can be opened when the properties are rented together. This suits families and gives a total of occupancy of 14 but it means that the futon area of the apartment and the bunk room of the house, although shut off at night and so private are "through" rooms during the day as they link the properties.

Lujar is a small, traditional country village nestling in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. It’s surrounded by almond trees, olive groves and ancient cobbled mule tracks that weave their way through the valley.

Although it's a short drive to the shops, you can buy fresh bread, meat, fish etc from one of the vans that set up and sell to the villagers every day from the square. There is a late night kiosk selling ice cream, cigarettes and drinks and 2 bar restaurants.

The village is 45 mins drive to Granada, 10 mins drive to the coast. Malaga is 1 hour 45 mins drive, Grenada 60 mins and Almeria 90 mins. It is 60 mins to the Alhambra and the ski resorts of the Sierra Nevada.

Guest access

Guests can use the village pool, tennis courts, football pitch and 2 bars. There is free wifi in the house, DVD and VHS players, comfy places to relax and 3 sun terraces. We can provide a large paddling pool - big enough for adults!

Interaction with guests

I do not live at the property but I have a house next door where I often stay in the school holidays

Die Wohnung besitzt einen besonderen Charme und ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir haben uns vom ersten Moment an pudelwohl gefühlt. Sie ist sehr geräumig und komfortabel. Auch die Ausstattung ließ nichts zu wünschen (bis auf die Teekanne, die meist überall fehlt) übrig. Allerdings gefiel uns die Gegend nicht so gut. Einerseits fährt man bei der Anfahrt von Motril über die Berge durch abgebrannten Wald, andererseits verschandeln die vielen Gewächshäuser mit ihren Plastikfolien den Landschaftseindruck. Der Strand ist auch nicht gerade eine Perle, und in den Dörfern war zu unserer Zeit (Anfang April) "der Hund begraben ". Wenn man allerdings ein bis eineinhalb Stunden Fahrt durch einsame karstige Berge nicht scheut, kann man spektakuläre Wandertouren in den Albufarrabergen unternehmen. Wir haben uns jedesmal auf die Rückkehr in unsere idyllische Haus Oase gefreut.

Kom luisteren naar de stilte in Lujar. Er is, zoals Tamsin al schrijft, nagenoeg niets in het dorp. Maar er komen echt auto's met brood, groente, fruit, vis etc. Er is 1 bar en daar kun je (mits aangegeven) mee-eten wat de pot schaft. Echte Spaanse gerechten. Het zwembad is waarschijnlijk alleen geopend in Juli en Augustus, omdat dit een dorps-zwembad is en een "life-guard" aanwezig moet zijn, die uit zak van de gemeente betaald wordt. En als alle kinderen weer naar huis zijn (meestal bij Opa en Oma op vakantie) gaan ze niet meer betalen voor die verdwaalde toerist die in Lujar verblijft en die zonodig wil zwemmen. Het huis is netjes, alle voorzieningen zijn aanwezig. Terras is heerlijk. Bedden kraken enorm. Ondanks dat de eigenaresse in Engeland zat, had ze alles goed geregeld en werden we ook door een vriendin van haar welkom geheten. De bewoners van Lujar zijn erg vriendelijk en als je een beetje Spaans praat zijn ze zéker erg behulpzaam. Naar de kust is het zo'n 15-20 minuten rijden. In 10 minuten kan ook wel, maar met gevaar voor eigen leven en de maaginhoud van je medepassagiers. Zeker een aanrader en we hopen weer terug te komen.

Vi er en familie på 4 personer, som havde to dejlige uger i Tamsins hus i Lujar. Tamsin var meget hjælpsom og kom bl.a. med gode råd til biludlejning og en meget detaljeret kørselsbeskrivelse. Lujar er en hyggelig lille landsby, hvor man skal op af en lille bjergvej for at komme til landsbyen. Området nedenfor Lujar er præget af grøntsagsproduktion, hvilket kan ses i landskabet. Folk i byen er meget venlige. Huset er, som det fremgår af billederne, rigtig hyggeligt. Og tingene fungerer som de skal. Vi kan anbefale stedet.
