A pretty 1 bedroom country cottage close to the rural village of Jayena, near Granada, on 10,000m2 of land planted with productive olive trees – an ideal ‘get-away’ cottage!

A delightful 55m2 house built around 8 years ago and lovingly improved by its one-time owner to make a very comfortable home in real, unspoilt Andalucía.  This lovely little ‘get-away’ home is situated in stunning, very natural countryside close to the national park and mountain,

A private drive leads from an asphalt country land, up to the house, with ample parking space, and surrounded entirely by olive and almond trees.  A tiled covered terrace provides welcome shade in the hotter months and from here the front door leads directly into the living room (5.6 x 5m) with large central feature fireplace with a cast iron woodburner.  The living room also has a side door out onto the land.  Next to the living room is teh open plan kitchen, 1.9 x 2.4m with fully fitted kitchen units and appliances.  Beyond is the bathroom (1.8 x 1.8m) with corner shower unit.  To one right of the living room, a door leads into the double bedroom  (4.2 x 3m).

Outside are gardens and plenty of flat or very gently sloping land, planted with 89 olive trees and 28 almond treees, which can be maintained and harvested by the local farmers if required.

Jayena is about a 5 minute drive and has shops and bars and a friendly local population.  Stunning Lake Bermejales is only 10 minutes drive, with natural beaches – ideal for Summer afternoons and those keen on lake and river swimming, or fishing.  The national park can be explored on foot and offers a rich variety for nature lovers to discover!  The country town of Alhama de Granada is withn a 25 minute drive of the village and Granada city is about 35 minutes.  Access is excellent, with no dirt track.

This property is ideal for anyone wishing to have a small, easy to maintain bolt-hole in real Andalusia, far from the tourist crowds and yet not too far from the coast.  It is especially good for those who love the idea of outdoor activities such as cycling and walking – and all at an affordable price.
