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 space

The 3 main rooms of The Garden Flat open directly onto both a covered patio and/ or 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. The flat sleeps 5 people very comfortably. 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] 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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

We are retired and have the time to introduce guests to the local area through maps and guided walks if they wish. Mountain adventures and horse riding can be arranged in advance as can massage, yoga classes and many other activities.

Other things to note

We provides towels, sheets etc.
If you wish to visit the Alhambra you should book well in advance.
We live above the flat so if there are any things you have forgotten or need we are usually there to help.

what a wonderful place!! the garden is absolutely beautiful and the location is brilliant. The apartment itself is in a small town, about 20-30 mins from Grenada. This meant that you could visit the city quickly if you wanted to and also meant that it was lovely and peaceful at night. If you are thinking about booking a stay in the garden flat then dont hestitate because its great value for money and wont disappoint. Thank you for having us it was lovely :)

This is beautifully equipped flat in an historic village surrounded by orange, lemon and olive groves. Granada is 30 mins away, do not miss the wonderful Alhambra Palace. Pricey but worth it. We can highly recommend this flat and garden

Response from Hilary:
Yes, a visit to the Alhambra including the Nasarid Palace is expensive, €15 for adults (€10 for over 65s) but you can visit some parts free and the gardens and castle visit is much cheaper. Booking well in advance is essential. So glad you enjoyed our flat and garden.

We enjoyed staying in this lovely Andalusian village in Hilary's house. She provided us everything we needed and she was very helpful. She even took us to a village walk with her friends - thank you Hilary. If you ever plan a trip to Andalusia don't miss this place. Thank you again!

What an incredible place to stay. A wonderful warm welcome by Hilary and Grahame who are very knowledgeable about the local area. The apartment is spacious clean fully furnished with beautiful access to garden and access to the Orange groves. Quiet and relaxing with mountain views. Lots of walking in area and tapas restaurants in local area. An excellent recommendation. A gem in the Andalusian countryside.

Auf unserer Rundreise durch Andalusien haben wir zum Abschluss ein wirkliches Highlight vorgefunden: eine wunderbar ruhige Wohnung mit schönem Garten und außerordentlich netten Vermietern. Alle Ziele wie Granada, die Küste und die Sierra Nevada/Alpujarras waren schnellstens erreichbar.

Un couple d'anglais charmant qui nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de gentillesse, dans leur charmante maison et son jardin extraordinaire, dans ce lieu magique de la sierra Nevada. A recommander
