Cottage overview - owner's description
CASA PEQUEÑA, a quality self-catering accommodation of unrivalled value for money. Pretty detached cottage style villa, ideal for two travellers. Possible to accommodate one extra guest (odd night) using the living-room double sofa-bed. A home from home the perfect place to relax, chill in the gardens or soak up the rugged beauty of ANDALUCIA - also a great touring base. English speaking representative (me!) on hand to answer any questions and help you in any way!
This traditional agricultural area with expanding tourist industry - still mainly Spanish - remains largely unspoilt by mass development. Growing sub-tropical fruits and vegetables often in large Invernaderos (plastic greenhouses) a vital part of the local economy. Fishing and tourism, secondary.
The Casita, shares interesting sub-tropical gardens with the owners traditional farmhouse Cortijo Nuevo and EL APARTAMENTO. The latter is also available for rentals (Ref: 1787) so possible to rent both homes allowing groups of 4/6 travellers maximum.
NEW POLICY FOR 2017: Adults only, no infants or children under 16 years of age. Idea to maintain the sense of peace, tranquility and relaxation. Suitable naturists.
The Cortijo is nicely designed so each property has privacy and ample outdoor space. As well as many shared areas various patios and benches, BBQs & fountains to relax by.
In season pick citrus fruits and avocados for breakfast. Lounge by the Swimming Pool (shared only with any occupants of El Apartamento) - perfect spot to chill out after busy day sightseeing or relaxing on any number of unspolit beaches on this Granada Coastline.
During the day or after sunset rustle up a barbecue beside the casita terrace. Fully equipped for 3 travellers charcoal bbq, ample seating and 2 sun loungers on the roof - vine covered terrace by the swimming pool.
Well behaved and socialised pet DOGS ALLOWED, my three waggy dogs; Hector, Boris and Dino live on site.
The Casita is comfortably furnished, an eclectic mix of modern and rustic/antique, not simply a spartan holidaylet or bog standard modern apartment.
Extras to make it feel more like home include full Wi-Fi coverage (house and gardens), including the swimming pool zone, DVDs, prints, books and fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare and cook meals.
Multi-language satellite television system - 100s of channels + UK Internet television. Woodburner in living room, cosy and practical on longer Winter lets. Plus I-pod dock in the bedroom.
The landscaped and illuminated gardens are an oasis, even in the dry Summer season. Full of many sub-tropical plants and exotic flowers for many months of the year. They provide the necessary protection against the sun - terraces and seating areas in both sun or shade. Cottage/jungle in design, they are not suburban or manicured - more a gardeners garden with many plant varieties.
Probably the best climate in mainland Europe - averaging over 320 sunny days a year. Snow & frosts very rare on the coast - possible to grow bananas, sugar cane and papaya on the Costa Tropical!
Keen gardeners welcome and always work to be done if you tire of sunbathing!
On arrival you will find beds made; welcome drink/snack. Advise Upgrade to Comprehensive LUXURY pack for just £50 extra - useful after long journey, or late/weekend arrivals. Contents can be tailored to your requirements, ask for details.
IDEAL TOURING BASE - CAR ESSENTIAL
The Perfect spot for Independent travellers. Enjoy the best of all worlds traditional agricultural area, sea and mountain views, peaceful yet just 5 minute drive from busy town and beach life around Motril. Not isolated along trecherous mountain tracks like many inland hill properties!
Nearest beaches, shops, tapas bars and restaurants 3kms. away in the bustling market town of Motril, including large hypermarket and daily indoor food market. Cinema, theatre & new Bullring! Motril a working town rather than tourist resort remains very Spanish and is busy year round, ideal for longer Winter breaks - when most resort towns seem to close down!
Fine road network making excursions to GRANADA, LAS ALPUJARRAS, LECRIN VALLEY, SEVILLE, ALMERIA, SIERRA NEVADAS, MALAGA, CABO DE GATA, ALMUNECAR & NERJA easy and practical.
Also good base for property searches in the area many agents and Lawyers in Motril - many puchasers stay here - laptop facility useful.
Spanish restaurant Meson Puntalon and two small bars, just 10 minute stroll to Puntalon - but, really need to centre on Motril town & Port for everyday needs.
Although final cleaning is included in our prices, we ask travellers to ensure that the kitchen is tidy on departure and all rubbish disposed of.

Patrick, thanks once again for hospitality. Everything was excelent. The garden is beautifull.
The dogs are very friendly. Hector is nice but hyperactive when you are leaving and it's hard to bring him in home from the street. )
the owner is lovely. He and his very friendly dogs will greet you on arrival and show you around. You are then free to help yourself, wander around the beautiful gardens and relax by the pool or fire up the barbecue.
The bustling little town of Motril is only 1km away, with excellent an beach at Salobrena just a stones-throw further.
The best word to describe this property is...potential. It could be a holiday haven. The photos in the advert are so out of date...the 'lush gardens' are now, in fact, a jungle!! The areas of the garden created for a relaxing siesta/chill out time are difficult to find in the overgrown bush and too unkempt to suit their purpose.
Once upon a time this may have been an ideal holiday cottage away from the tourist trail but now, unfortunately, it is far from it.
The summer kitchen/barbecue area again was not fit to be used as such and the pool was not very inviting.....seemingly the dogs enjoyed the cooling water!
The general cleanliness of the whole place was poor.
The owner was very friendly and helpful when approached and his 3 dogs were no (real) trouble but a lot of work/care and attention is needed to bring it up to the standard necessary to be rented out and for it to match the description as advertised.
A really lovely quirky unique cottage. It had everything you could possibly need for your stay. Lovely sun trap on the roof terrace. As for the gardens, well they are truly amazing, with lots of lovely flowers and corners to explore. The swimming pool at the end of the garden was just amazing, what a lovely area to just laze in the sun and cool off in the pool. Patrick was a great host and was very helpful, and as for the dogs, Dino and Hector, they were great company. We had a really relaxing, peaceful holiday here, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Casa Pequena was a magical experience for me and my husband who were both gratly in need of a rest. The villa is quirky which I loved and has every single thing you could need. Dining on the sun terrace on in the garden is great as the different perfumes of the flowers drift by! There is something new to note each day in the beautiful, mature garden. Patrick is a gentleman in every sense of the word and clearly at one with nature and his wonderful dogs: Hector, the rogue Dino the loveable rescue dog and Gerry, the grandaddy of them all! We divided our time between the villa and touring the area which has much to offer. I would love to return with more of my family in the future where I could keep them at a comfortable disatance from me in the appartment! I thoroughly recommend this little jewel on the south coast of Spain!

Swimming pool shared only with any occupants of my other holiday home on site (EL APARTAMENTO), usually just 2 adults, sometimes - often none! Unlike many property owners I practise a transparent policy regarding Reviews. ALL are published in full, not just selected 5* Reviews. NONE are deleted or manipulated to make the property appear faultless! I believe this honest approach to Reviews allows the potential renter, full access to past traveller feedback helping in decision making - plus giving the property a genuine rental history. PLEASE NOTE: HIGH NUMBERS & LEVEL of Reviews in comparison to other properties, when choosing where to stay! If you know your dates, BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT! + PLEASE NOTE - the Double bedroom is separate & accessed directly from the front terrace. The Casita has three different entrances - quirky layout! Perhaps suitable for couples CAR ESSENTIAL. Secure off-lane parking by the old fountain.
Private Owner From Motril,, Spain Member since Feb 2003
My name is Patrick, I am a British Citizen having owned Cortijo Nuevo, for over 26 years and residing here full-time since 2001, with three friendly dogs; Dino, Hector & Boris. We all respect guests privacy, but still available to deal with any issues and problems, offer advice or simply chat. Key/linen change, pool and gardening maintenance are all dealt with swiftly with the aim of facilitating a restful and tranquil stay here on the Costa Tropical.
Both CASA PEQUEÑA and EL APARTAMENTO are popular year round, due in part to the wonderful Andaluz climate, but also the special garden - note the many positive reviews on the subject. Both homes are comfortable furnished with everything necessary in a holiday let, but also a few extras - to enable any travellers to unwind after their initial arrival. Please Contact NOW for website details, any questions, latest Tariffs, booking schedule and payment options. Thank You.
Perhaps hear from you soon, and looking forward to welcoming you to this Costa Tropical Oasis.
