Village House in Acequias, Lecrin Valley, Andalucia - Peaceful location on the edge of the Sierra Nevada National Park
Acequias is a small village situated about 2 miles from the main road between Granada and the coast. With the Sierra Nevada mountains behind, Orgiva, Las Alpujarras, Granada and the coast all within a 30 minutes drive, and an excellent road network, the village is an ideal base to explore this unspoilt area of Spain. The house has been fully refurbished to a very high standard. The roof terrace is the ideal place to relax and admire the beautiful scenery.

About the Owner
About Stuart Mason
We are a semi retired couple who live in the Lecrin Valley. Our interest in Granada was sparked after visiting the area on holiday.
We bought our first property in Acequias in 2001 as a holiday cottage, but we soon found that the relaxed life style in Spain suited us better than the hectic life in the UK.
In 2003 we made the decision to take early retirement and move to Spain.
We bought another property in Chite which we converted into two holiday apartments and an apartment for ourselves.
We have many interests and have integrated into Spanish village life.
The mountains of the Sierra Nevada are on our doorstep and we take every opportunity we can to explore and walk the footpaths and tracks of this beauitful area.

There are extensive details of the surrounding area with maps and guides to the Sierras, many we have produced ourselves to help you get the best from your stay at Casa Eras.

Town house in quiet village
We spent a peaceful week in this sleepy village, visiting Granada and enjoying walks in the Lecrin Valley. A clever renovation makes use of limited space, where the owner has thought of everything. The house is located up a narrow road which requires parking in the village centre. But if you are here for the walking, don't let that put you off! The views are fantastic from the terrace. The village does not have a shop.
