About the property

House in Acequias, Lecrin Valley, Granada Province Andalucia, Spain - Situated At The Top Of The Village, The House Has Absolutely Beautiful Views.

Our family has owned Buena Vista for around 10 years. We bought it as a ruin and worked closely with local builders to sympathetically restore the house, emphasizing Andalucia’s links to Morocco through the design and furnishings. The house has very thick walls to help keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There is a large roof terrace with comfortable banquettes where we have spent many a long and languid summers evening. In fact, we decided to install an outside kitchen so that we can maximise time spent on the terrace (and reduce the journeys downstairs for the cold cervezas!) There is a large shaded area, a fridge, sink, gas hob and cast iron "plancha" for flash frying (it also has a toaster and kettle so you can head straight up for breakfast!). The terrace has a lovely outside shower where you can enjoy spectacular views while getting ready for the evening ahead. Buena Vista sleeps 6 comfortably (there are 3 double bedrooms, each boasting spectacular views over the village and hills) and 2 bathrooms, one with a full sized bath. There is a good-sized, practical kitchen (with a well stocked larder containing herbs and spices etc). We are keen cooks so the kitchen is well equipped. The kitchen joins onto a comfortable sitting room with a large fire place – ideal for cosy winter nights in. The house is great for couples and families with older children or babies. We wouldn’t recommend the house for families with toddlers – the high terrace makes for lovely views but unless constant vigilance is your thing, it probably wouldn’t make for the most relaxing holiday!

Review of Buena Vista

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house in Andalucia which completely lived up to expectations.

Great for relaxing on the terrace as well as a good situation for walking in the Sierra Nevada and visiting Granada, Cordoba and other places.

Very welcoming.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

We can arrange language or cooking classes. We can also arrange a guide for walks around the area.


Acequias is approximately 30 minutes by car from the Costa Tropical which has popular beaches (e.g. Salobrena and La Herredura) where beachside restaurants serve up barbecued sardines, octopus and paella etc.


Acequas is a 30-40 minute drive from Granada airport (1.5 hours from Malaga). Car hire is essential.


Durcal is about 5k away from Acequias and has banks, shops and supermarkets etc. It also has a weekly market.

Further Details:

Acequias provides an excellent base from which to explore Andalucia. It is approximately 30 minutes by car from the Costa Tropical which has popular beaches (e.g. Salobrena and La Herredura) where beach side restaurants serve up barbecued sardines, octopus and paella.

The stunning Moorish city of Granda is also within easy reach (again, about 30 minutes by car). Granada is home to the wonderful Alhambra palace (book online to avoid long queues during peak times).

The Lecrin valley is very popular with serious climbers, as well as those who enjoy a more leisurely ramble. Niguelas is the closest town and is a very pretty 20 mins walk away – perfect for working up an appetite for those tapas! You can also drive to the Alpujarras mountains which are simply stunning (“Driving Over Lemons” land). The drive takes about 20 minutes (to Lanjaron) and you can either go on further into the Alpujarras (to beautiful remote areas like the village of Ferrirola) or from there you can go on a large number of different walks, pitched to your level of fitness or endurance.
