This charming home has been sympathetically restored to create a large and flexible village home with 5 bedrooms and several living spaces. Great outside space allows you to soak up the atmosphere of the village location and take in the amazing views of the surrounding countryside.
The house is one of the oldest in the village and benefits from an elevated position offering views of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, the fertile Andarax Valley, and the Tabernas desert.
The village is just half an hour from the capital city of Almeria and the Mediterranean Sea so you can enjoy a traditional environment but not feel isolated from the modern amenities and cultural events available on the coast.
The house is set across two floors and the recent restoration of the house has been carefully considered to complement the character and where possible, local materials and traditional methods have been used. The design of the house ensures the breeze keeps you cool in the summer months and the various terraces and a patio ensure that alfresco living is easy.
We feel this home offers a comforting and warm environment in which to enjoy the best of traditional Andalusian living and here are the reasons why…
♦ A great location in the mountains – La Alpujarra of Almeria
♦ Elevated position in the village providing panoramic views
♦ Thoughtfully renovated to provide a “blank canvas” for new owners
♦ 5 bedrooms giving plenty of flexibility for the use of rooms for new owners
♦ Two entrances to create even more flexibility for future use

This home will appeal to anyone wanting to escape the stress of modern life and who wants to immerse themselves into a traditional Andalusian pueblo.
The history of the home will enthral visitors and the use of traditional materials creates a connection between modern life and a more sustainable future. The views of the surrounding countryside and the clarity of the night skies makes you consider your place in this world and allows you to reflect on the wonder of your surroundings.
This area is described as La Alpujarra of Almeria and the area benefits from the most amazing mountains including the famous Sierra Nevada to the north.
However, you might easily think this house is isolated but the village benefits from a wide range of amenities including: a variety of local shops, the pharmacy, several cafes, the doctor’s office, the post office and the town hall.
Almeria provides fruit and vegetables to most of Europe and the local supply of abundant produce includes mandarins, oranges, lemons and grapefruits, peppers, avocados, olives and olive oil, tomatoes and honey. This valley is a Garden of Eden for a healthy life.
The house is the perfect place from which to explore the mountains but to the south, just 30mins drive is the capital city of Almeria and the beautiful beaches that are so popular. Roquetas de Mar, Cabo de Gata and the Tabernas desert are all easily reached in less than an hour.
