3 bedrooms – 2 bathrooms – 2 terraces – pretty plaza in picturesque country hamlet close to Alcaucin village, South facing, with views across the countryside.  30 mins to the coast.

This lovely village house is located in a peaceful country hamlet in the mountains below the dramatic mountain pass of Zafarraya and close to the pretty village of Alcaucin.

From the hamlet main square, it is possible to park right in front of the house.  A covered, gated front terrace of around 8 x 2m makes a perfect place to relax in the shade and watch the hamlet locals go by, on their way to the fields to work, or the ladies sweeping the little patch outside their houses, just as it has always been!  A taste of real, country Spain.

From the terrace, the front door leads into the open plan downstairs living area.  To the left is the spacious living room area, with woodburner fireplace for the Winter, and to the left is the dining area and, beyond the stairs, an arch leads into the fully fitted kitchen. The living and dining area is around 8 x 5m and the kitchen is 4 x 3.5m with window to the rear. To the rear of the living room area are useful storage cupboards and a downstairs bathroom with bath and overhead shower (3 x 2m).

The stairs lead upstairs, to a short corridor with a door leading out to the front upstairs balcony terrace (5.5 x 2m) with lovely views over the hamlet and countryside.  Around the corner is the upstairs shower room (2.5 x 2m) to the right.  And to the left are bedrooms 1 (3.5 x 3.5m) and 2 (also 3.5 x 3.5m), with mountain views from the windows.  At the far end is bedroom 3, also around 3.5 x 3.5m.

This simple, but not unspacious family house is perfect for anyone wishing to have a reasonably affordable, low maintenance holiday bolt-hole, that is economical to maintain and run.  Alcaucin village is only a few minutes’ drive away, and the coast is within half an hour.  Access to long, uninterrupted country walks is right from one’s front door and the mountains are easily accessible for longer mountain trecks and rambles.  A perfect place to unwind, with no hassle, no worries and very little work – just turn up and enjoy!
