Holiday home with private swimming pool in quiet nature area near Alcaucín
This typically Spanish holiday home with private swimming pool is located in the protected nature reserve Sierra de Tejeda y Almijaras, far away from traffic and bustle, on a hill with a spectacular view of the mountains, valley and the Mediterranean. The Moorish village of Alcaucin is nearby. There’s a beautifully landscaped garden with fruit trees around the house. There’s a lot of privacy and both sun and shade on the various terraces. A nice detail about the swimming pool is that there’s a shallow part where you can sit comfortably with your feet in the water while enjoying a snack or drink. The pool is (depending on the weather) closed from mid-November to May. Behind the house, you’ll find the beginning of a walking trail in the national park, where you’ll find a number of hiking and mountain biking trails, and even a possibility to climb the highest mountain of the area, the Maroma. In Alcaucín, you can go shopping and the village can also be reached through walking paths. The location is very suitable for those looking for quiet and serenity, in the middle of beautiful nature with diverse flora and fauna, but still close to the Costa del Sol and the hinterland. PLEASE NOTE: the last 1.5 km to the house are over a steep road with some unpaved sections. Driving on this road is very well possible, but some caution is necessary, especially in the dark. This makes this road mostly suitable for people with extensive driving experience. In first gear, you should not have any problems.
