Dear guests,
It’s important that you know that this is an eco-house where all the electricity comes from solarpanels. The house works more or less like any other house with a few exceptions. You can’t use hairdriers or iron clothes here. Furthermore the washing machine can only be used between 11:30 and 16:00. As for the central heating, you will have a good heat in the whole house (through the underfloor heating), but there are also two woodburning stoves and lots of firewood.
The rest, like lights, wifi, fridge, freezer and hot water, is normal;-)
I hope this doesn’t discourage you, but on the contrary makes you want to try out an eco-house:-)

Queridos huespedes,
es importante que sepais que esta casa es una casa ecologica donde toda la luz viene de placas solares. La casa funciona casi como cualquier casa, pero hay algunas cosas que no se puede por temas de la luz. No se puede usar secadores de pelo ni se puede planchar ropa y la lavadora solo se puede usar entre las 11:30 y 16:00. En cuanto a la calefaccion, en invierno enciendo la calefaccion que va por el suelo radiante, y eso da un calor bueno por toda la casa. Tambien hay dos estufas de leña por si la quereis mas calentita (hay toda la leña que querais).
Todo lo de mas es normal, osea luces, wifi, nevera, frigo...
Espero que teneis ganas de probar una casa ecologica:-)

what a beautifull place to spend your holiday!!! the view is unique and sunsets are magnificent. beatifull nature, literally, just around the corner with an adventurous, but still kid friendly, 7/8K walk in the canyon (also a beatifull 10' walk to the cohorros as well if you want to take it easy). alltough the place is quite remote, still only 5' from small supermarket, 15' from big supermarket (with splendid customer service!). only 3' from great restaurant down at the hill and a lot of bars in center Monachil serving great and genuine tapas. The kids loved the pool and found it great to jump in after a nice walk in the mountains or in the citycenter of Granada. Granada, being only 25' drive from Monachil or you can take direct bus. if you like running don't forget to ask Durita for a nice parcours but make sure you're in shape as she might join :-).

We absolutely loved our stay at Durita's. The house is gorgeous and the setting is second to none. The instructions received before arrival on how to find the house made things really easy and we we're met by Freyja who was polite and helpful. It was incredibly warm the whole time we were there (late July) but the house was really comfortable and there were no mosquitos! The Wi-Fi was strong and reliable as well. We took Freyja's advice and did a short walk up a nearby path and the view was breathtakingly.  We loved our stay at Durita's and we would love to stay there again!

After Toscane, Umbrië, Marche (Italy), North Spain, France, Norway or our ski holidays was this one of our briljant holiday homes. It was all fantastic, without exceptions...

This is a lovely house in a rural location with plenty of space and we had a very relaxing week here. It is cooler up here in the evenings and very peaceful. The pool is lovely and cool in the very hot summer days. Durita is an excellent host and on hand to help if you need anything. I would recommend the Los Cahorros walk nearby and the house is well placed for visits to the Alhambra Palace, Granada science park and only 45 minutes to the beaches at Motril. The access road to the house in not for the faint hearted though ( do not bring a saloon car!). You need to wear shoes on the deck, but I would recommend this home to friends. It's lovely.

Al I can say is that Durita deserves to be called a Super host. The house has everything mentioned in the description, it is clean, well equipped and the most beautiful view you can imagine. There is enough hot water to shower, and also enough cold water to cool down. The bed is real king size and very good, and in the evening you can open the windows for a cool breeze of mountain air. The water from the tap is drinkable and tastes better than bottled water, it is so soft that you don’t need conditioner for your hair. On a hot day (and they can be very hot) you can make use of the swimming pool and do a little tanning on the veranda by the pool. The pool is kept clean and the water is cool and clear. Within 5km there is a big supermarket where they sell everything you need to enjoy your holiday. For people who like to hike this place is the best starting point ever, with a short cut to the Los Cahoros. Here you find adventures hiking paths, waterfalls and a very long cable bridge. The roads in the sierra Nevada are beautiful, a real pleasure for motor bikers and bikers with the beautiful curved roads and hills. I hope one day soon we may use Durita’s place again, and meet Durita and her little daughter again. Greetings, Ron and Christianne

We had a very nice stay (2 kids + 2 adults) at Duritas house. The view is awesome and it's really important to follow the guidance from Durita to the house. Also very important for some drivers is the hint that you have to drive through a "do not pass" road.
