Chite is a small village in the Lecrin valley surrounded by orange and olive groves, overlooking a large lake. It is within walking distance of shops and services and 5 minutes by car to the A44 motorway which takes you north to Granada and south to the costa tropical beaches at Salobrena, both only 25 minutes away. The Alpujarran villages and the Sierra Nevada mountains for walks/skiing are within easy reach, also Granada airport [40 min] and Malaga [1 hr 20min], Almeria airport[1 hr 30min].
The flat can be booked for 3/5 people ( see other listing) but for 2/3 people can choose either or the two bedrooms when you arrive and the other will not be rented out to anyone else. All the rooms of The Garden Flat open directly onto both a covered patio and the garden. They are heated by a pellet stove with radiators. It is warm in winter but cool in summer. It is a tranquil space with a fishpond in the covered patio and views into the garden from all rooms. Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. Bedroom 2, the Blue Room, has a single bed in addition to a double bed and an ensuite shower room. Bedroom 1, the Red Room has a larger double bed and a spacious bathroom with bath and bidet [the single bed can be moved into this room if necessary] Remember you can choose one or the other.
The kitchen is equipped for self catering and you can choose to dine indoors or outdoors. The indoor sitting area has a DVD player and TV screen with internet connection. There is plenty of parking immediately beside the house.
The apartment is reached steps from the street or by a path through the garden. All the rooms have lockable doors and open into a large covered area. This is a good shady place to relax should it be raining or hot. The open plan sitting/ kitchen/ dining room exclusively for your use can be reached from the covered patio but also opens directly into a small walled garden with pizza oven/BBQ and seasonal hot tub /plunge pool primarily for guest use. The main garden is well tended with a lawn, vegetable garden, fruit trees and many shrubs and flowers. I may be working there for a few hours a day but you can use it whenever you want and for boisterous games there is plenty of space to kick a football around in the adjacent fields.
The flat has a shared laundry area off the covered patio.
