Cottage overview - owner's description

A small open plan Casita situated in 4000 square meters of land with large curvy private pool, sunbathing terrace and gardens just 30 minutes walk from the village of Valor.

Cuesta Vinas is a small hamlet famed for its naturally carbonated spring water. Situated just 2 kms out of the village of Valor, (a gentle 30 minute stroll), this casita is perched on the hillside above the hamlet and offers peace and tranquillity without being remote.

Within the 4000 square meters of land are two casitas ( see Cuesta Vinas 70887), each with their own private pool, private sunbathing areas and their own gardens.

Casa Verde has a beautifully tiled outdoor terrace to the rear of the house overhung by vines and olive trees where you can laze away the days in either sun or shade. There are sunbeds, a gas barbecue and a rustic outdoor dining area so it's also a great evening relaxation spot.. Steps from here climb through the lavender and past the soft fruit garden to the top terrace where you'll find the generously sized pool with second sunbathing area and stunning views across to the Contraviesa mountain range.

Enjoy the flowers and butterflies which abound and the local birds which nest around the house and swoop over the terrace in the early morning and evening, occasionally taking a diversion through the house itself!

The pool is filtered and contains a minimum of chlorine, so you can find yourself sharing with the occasional friendly frog!

The property

The sunny casita is open-plan with a well equipped free-standing wooden kitchen, central dining area, sitting area with wood burning stove and a comfortable bedroom area. Double doors open off the kitchen and a second set open onto the secluded rear terrace giving the space a very open and airy feel.

The house is traditionally built with shutters which keep the space cool during July and August whilst ensuring a cosiness during the colder months of winter. The kitchen area is fully equipped with 5 ring gas hob, fridge with icebox and sink. There is ample crockery, glassware, cutlery etc. and you will always find the basic kitchen ingredients , such as oil, vinegar and a selection of herbs and spices, in addition to your welcome pack. The living area is focused around the old wood burner with comfortable seating for 4 and contains a selection of books and games for evening entertainment. The separate, tiled bathroom contains a multifunction shower with body jets and waterfall setting, washbasin and wc.

There is wireless broadband and a speaker system suitable for an ipod or laptop available for your use in the casita and ample parking outside of the house.

The Area

The Moorish village of Valor perches on the foothills of the Sierra Nevada gazing out over the valley and the market town of Ugijar. An unspoilt traditional Spanish village popular with Spanish tourists. Situated two hours from Granada and one hour from the coast, culture, countryside, beaches and skiing are all within easy reach.

With a population of just under 1000, the village has 9 bars all of which serve tapas and a couple of which offer a full menu. There are also 2 small supermarkets, one with its own bakery, which sell all essential shopping items including fresh meat, fruit and veg. There is a pharmacy, bank and gift shop selling local cheeses and pottery. The travelling market visits on the 4th and 19th of every month with a few stalls selling clothing, plants, nuts & olives etc. For a wider range of shops and a bustling twice monthly market, the town of Ugijar is just 10 kilometers away. The village pool is open during the months of July and August and there are numerous fiestas throughout the year, the largest of these being Moors and Christians in September when the villagers re-enact the taking of the Alhambra complete with horses and musket fire.

Just a 45 minute walk in the opposite direction will take you to the equally charming village of Yegen. With its olde worlde feel you can almost imagine you’ve stepped back into the last century.

You are surrounded by magnificent views of the Sierra Nevada and Contraviersa mountain ranges with numerous opportunities for walking and mountain biking on your doorstep. For the more adventurous, Mulhacen is close at hand.

Popular with Spanish tourists but as yet relatively undiscovered by other nationalities, Valor is an extremely friendly pueblo blanco and an ideal place to observe and enjoy the traditional Spanish way of life.

Couple from Kelvedon, United Kingdom Aug 2016

Wow! We loved our stay here at Casa Verde. The location is stunning with uninterrupted views of the mountains and valleys. The ever changing views at sunset are spectacular with the shadows and colours continually changing. Hosts Terry and Ginny are lovely though we really only saw them on arrival as they left us to enjoy the tranquility of this gem. The local village is picturesque with ample bars and restaurants which provide a warm Spanish welcome. The property itself is completely self contained with everything you need for a comfortable stay, extremely clean and well thought out. In the height of summer air conditioning would have been welcome, particularly at night but the shade of the fruit trees on the terrace and the fabulous pool was lovely during the day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would definitely recommend to our friends and would love to revisit Casa Verde.
