About the property

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 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.

Stuart and Olwyn Mason.

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.

Lovely little place, provides everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, not especially big, but enough room for holiday accomodation and space to store your gear. Provision of most of the utensils you'd need in the kitchen, but we did buy a bottle of olive oil which we left behind, not wanting to take it in our luggage; some salt would have been useful. Washing up liquid and laundry detergent were provided, but no hand soap in bathroom. Gorgeous roof terrace with stunning views out across the valley with evening sunsets. We visited at a cool time of year and the house was cool too, but plenty warm enough once the big woodburner got going in an evening. Plug in radiators were useful too. We didn't use the tv, but the wifi was surprisingly fast. Nice selection of useful books and guides. It was tight and steep to get the car up to the house; we didn't chance it with the hire car, but watched the locals do it with ease even with big cars and I dont' think we'd have had problems with our own car which we are not precious about. We parked in the square without any issues, and it was only a 1-2 minute walk from the house.

Lovely place, would visit again.

Town house in quiet village

  • 4 of 5

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.
