Casa Jazmin, a detached cottage with WIFI, is situated in the small hamlet of La Realenga about 10 minutes by car from the town of Heutor-Tajar (HT) in Granada province.

The cottage, which has been renovated to a high standard, sleeps 6 and is 25 minutes from Granada, 45 minutes from the coast at Costa Tropica, 55 minutes from Malaga and 55 minutes from the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved your house and will always keep it in mind. You have a truly beautiful property and clearly you have had a hand in tastefully developing it. The area, weather and wonderful clean pool were huge contributory

factors- obviously. But the olive fields, privacy, stonework/tiling, metal grilles, old style charm all aesthetically pleased us immensley. The bedrooms upstairs delighted Anne. The house was comfortable and clean. The air con very necessary and welcome. I have to say that it was probably the best house we have enjoyed and saddest to leave - and we have rented lovely houses in France, Italy and Switzerland."



"We liked the area very much, and thought the cottage was very comfortable & could not think of anything else we could have wanted - as it was so well equipped."



"Many thanks for use of your cottage, we all enjoyed its style and comfort; skiing was excellent"

Special interest holidays:

Nature walks are available and can be arranged on arrival with a local expert. Bird watching tours can also be arranged, but reservations are recommended.

Please contact the owners for more details.

Coast/Beach:

The coast at Salobrena is less than a 60 minute drive away. Both the Costa del Sol and Costa Tropica coastlines vary with beautiful sandy beaches to pebbly bays and rocky headlands. Both are about 1 hour away along mainly quiet, free Autovias. (The Costa Tropica is quickest.)

Travel:

The nearest airport is Granada, (20 mins), with Malaga only 55 mins away. A car is essential. There is off road parking at the cottage.

Distances:

The local village of La Fabrica is a 15 minute walk where 2 bars and restaurants can be found. Another bar can be found at the bottom of the hill on the main road. The nearest small town of Heutor Tajar is 5km, Loja is 10km. Granada and the Alhambra/Generalife are 25km. Cordoba is 90 mins, and Sevilla is 2 hours away by car. They are also accessible by train from Loja. The tourist villages of Rio Frio and Monte Frio are close by.

Further Details:

The baker calls daily (Mon-Sat) at approx 8.30- 9.30, with butcher and fruit/veg calling twice a week. A large supermarket and small, but well stocked, shops and banks are 10 mins in the car at Huetor Tajar. A similar range of shops and supermarkets are to be found in Loja. Hypermarkets and first class stores/shops are to be found in Granada. Advance Booking for the Alhambra is recommended and this can be done locally through any branch of the BBVA bank. There is one in Huetar Tajar. However, it is recommended that you book on-line direct with the Alhambra. You can also go "on spec", ignore the queues and buy a ticket from the ticket machine instead. Remember that most buinesses in Spain still close for siesta between 2pm and 4/5pm every working day. However, large supermarkets including Mercadona in Heutor Tajar now stay open through siesta from 9am to 9.30pm. There is a new large Leisure Facility in Huetor Tajar including indoor/outdoor swimming pools and gym which is available at very low cost to all.

The cottage is fabulous a real home from home

  • 5 of 5

Whilst the cottage is a typical Spanish dwelling from the outside, it has all the mod cons inside, we enjoyed a 2 week stay & could easily of stayed longer. The cottage, pool & sun terrace are lovely, the sun is on the pool side all day until the sun goes down, and it's so quiet & peaceful, all you need is a good bottle of wine and chill😀

Lovely house in very relaxing area

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully equipped house with nice pool in a lovely quiet area. Weather of course fabulous, and the house is close to Granada and a pretty easy drive to Córdoba too, as well as many other places. The owners clearly love the place. Other visitors have left helpful comments which are useful if this is your first time here. Don't forget Spain can be a bit quixotic with opening times! car essential and the road to Loja is fairly rutted so you need a good head for a drive! Super place.

3rd stay!!

  • 5 of 5

3rd stay in this lovely house. Never do much when we are here, but relax by the pool during the day and visit the local bars on the evening, but what more do you need on a holiday? I am sure we will be back again, thank you.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd stay at this lovely house. Very well equipped, with everything you need, so gives the choice of cooking or visiting the local bars to sample the Spanish cuisine. Lovely stroll down the road to the very friendly local bars, I am sure we will be back.

Fully equipped peaceful cottage holiday

  • 5 of 5

what a wonderful place for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. The house is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Relaxed by the pool during the day, ready for the visit to the local bars in the evening. A gentle atoll down the road to the very friendly bar at the end of the road then into La Fabrica. (More bars) Before the walk back watching the bats flying overhead.

An excellent spot for a fabulous holiday and I am sure we will be back. A big thank you to the owners
