Our home

The apartment is situated upstairs with its own private entrance and terrace through the gardens at the back of my villa. It's cosy and simply furnished, with all the modern conveniences including radio/cassette player and television. The lounge opens up onto the terrace, with views to the Mediteranean and the Sierra Nevada snow mountains off in the far distance, and there are sunbeds and an outside table and bamboo shades for the summertime.

Who we are

  1. I am a 57 year old widow, and live with my 32 year old son here in the house downstairs from the apartment. I teach Spanish to the English folk who have come to live locally, and he is a builder and musician. My daughter and grandson live in Taunton in England, where I spend my summers being Granny and I would plan for them to travel with me to visit Florida, where my sister and her family live in New Port Richey.We did a home swap 10 years ago, a French family came here, a New York family went to Paris and we went to Woodstock near where my mother lives and it was very succesfull for all involved.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The villa and apartment are located 25 kilometers from the sea, high on a mountaintop, set in an Avocado Plantation. The nearest house is 150 meters up the mountain, and it's a particularly quiet and beautiful spot. Dotted around and about are small villas, and the nearest shops, bank, atm, bars are 4 kms. up the mountain to Comares, or down the mountain to Benamargosa...It is the old kingdom of Axarquia, where the grapes are still made into Moscatel Raisins, and the farmers can still be heard singing while they tend their vines, almond, carob, olive and oak trees. Loads of wildlife, vultures, lynx, foxes, badgers, genetas, owls, and particularly from January on, the mountain air is filled with wildflowers and almond blossom.
