Villa in Lanjaron, Las Alpujarras, Andalucia - Secluded And Tranquil Location Between Orgiva And Lanjaron
Situated amongst olives groves with amazing views is El Rincon del Viento – a creatively designed and luxuriously decorated villa on the outskirts of the spa town of Lanjaron in Las Alpujarras, south of Granada, Andalucia, southern Spain. The house is available to rent as a luxury holiday home and sleeps 8 people. It is the ideal villa for those wanting a ‘get away from the crowds’ holiday, as the location is splendid, secluded and very peaceful. However, when you require a bit more activity, the market town of Orgiva is just 10 minutes drive, as is the lovely spa town of Lanjaron. And within 45 minutes you can be in Granada viewing the amazing Alhambra Palace or eating lobster on the beach in Salobreña. For those wanting even more exertion, the ski resort is just an hour away and walking into the high mountains of the Sierra Nevada including Mulhácen, the highest peak of Spain, is also close by. The landscaped gardens and large pool are a delight. There is even a small children’s pool.
About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
"This was our second visit to this villa/ It has a fantastic pool with regular maintenance by Andrew who also provides good local information and help during the stay. The house was immaculately clean and there is a fabulous selection of kitchen and utility equipment. There is also good back up when help is needed. We were delighted to receive British TV - I didn't miss the final of Masterchef or the highlights of the Commonwealth Games!! The villa is of high standard and the bathrooms have great showers. The Villa is well placed for exploring along the coast or inland. I would recommend hiring a car that has good ground clearance as the lane to the Villa is a dirt track in places. Avis were brilliant at the airport. It is rural but easy to go into the local towns for the daily bread, etc. Food is cheap locally and there are excellent supermarkets a short drive to Motril. There is also a goat farm below the Villa which is lovely to see the animals being taken out to graze in the valleys and then being brought home late in the evening by their shepherd. It is very peaceful and relaxing - a definite Chill Zone. Now planning our third visit for 2015!" Deborah, July 2014
