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 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.
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!
