About the property

Beautiful Valley Close To Granada - Peaceful Location In A Typical Andalucian Village, Perfect For Relaxing, Walking & Sightseeing

Casa Jazmin:

The house is located in the stunning Lecrin Valley close to Granada in Andalucia, Spain and is registered with the Andalucian Tourist Board (No: VTAR/GR/00885)

The things our guests love about the apartment are:

- Spacious and clean - You can read all of the previous reviews of how clean and spacious the apartment is.

- Comfortable beds in a quiet village - Most of our guests comment on the good night's sleep they have.

- Attention to detail – Although we have only been hosting for 2 years, we know from experience that it is important to have good facilities and equipment and we do our best to think of your travelling needs.

Guests also love our guide book and mention it in their reviews.

- The rooftop terrace – Spacious and sunny all day with views over the mountains and a large gas barbeque for a perfect meal and a relaxing glass of wine.

- Ideally situated for visiting Granada and the Alhambra in one direction and the beaches of The Costa Tropical in the other (both 20 minutes away). The start of the Sierra Nevada National Park is just 5 minutes walk from the front door and the Alpujarras “white villages” are just 45 minutes away through beautiful countryside.

- Perfect if you enjoy walking, cycling, skiing, horse riding, photography etc.

What our guests say:

“The apartment is part of a beautifully restored home, occupied for over 200 years and typical of the style of old houses in Andalucia. The house surrounds a Moorish style internal patio, has many of the original features, a wonderful, large rooftop terrace with views over the mountains and all the facilities to make this a wonderful place to stay!”

The Village:

The village is situated in the Lecrin Valley and is a mixture of old and new houses. We are within 5 minutes walking distance to Talara (sometimes mistakenly called Lecrin) with small supermarkets, a good butchers, restaurants, bars, banks, garages and a pharmacy.

During the Summer there is also an open air swimming pool only 2 minutes walk away.

The Area:

- Granada is 20 minutes away by car, with plenty of relatively cheap, safe, parking.

- The coast is 20 minutes in the other direction, with a range of beaches, from large with bars/restaurants on the beach (chiringuito’s), to small secluded coves with crystal clear water.

- The start of the Sierra Nevada National Park is 5 minutes walk from the house and we live in a valley full of orange, lemon, almond, walnut, avocado and pomegranate trees.

- The Alpujarras area with its famous “white villages” is a 30 minute drive away, through winding mountain roads, deep gorges and the remains of Moorish castles.

There are some laminated maps in the apartment to help you plan a day out, or of course you are more than welcome to ask us about any ideas you may have.


Travelling south from Granada in the 7th Century the Moors reached a vast, fertile valley encompassed within a bowl of mountains. The land had everything they prized – good earth, free-flowing rivers and the natural fortification of the sierras. Captivated by its beauty, they named it El Valle de Lecrín – which is commonly interpreted by the locals today as “Valley of Happiness”.

Home from home in a peacefull village

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and spacious accommodation in a sleepy Spanish village. The hosts made us feel very welcome and took great care to make sure we had everything we needed. Our daughters loved the roof terrace lit by fairy lights and accessed by a stone staircase. There is good access to local attractions including Granada, the coast and the Sierra Nevada.

Highly recommended and we would hope to visit again.

Well equipped and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days in Casa Jazmin. Everything for a comfortable stay (and cooking) is there. The house is situated in a small street, surrounded by houses in a rather sleeping village. The village itself might not be ideal for being part of the Spanish life. But the flat is spacious, we sometimes missed more daylight in the rooms, but the sunny terrace is nice, although not directly accessible from the rooms. The place is a good starting point for trips and walks to East Andalucia, Granada and the Costa Tropical. But a bit of a drive is always needed to access the nice spots. The owners are very, very friendly and we enjoyed the chats!

wonderful stay in lecrin valley

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at casa jazmin for 7 nights in May and we were very pleased we did so.we choose this accommodation because friends had stayed here before and said how good it was, everything was clean and well maintained, well equipped kitchen etc. And very comfortable beds! The Valley is beautiful with orange and lemon trees everywhere and surrounded by snow capped mountains (well in May anyway). Granada is only 20th minutes away and is now one of our favourite cities to explore, the walking and scenery as we drove around the valley and beyond was superb. The owners live here which made life very easy for us,nothing was too much trouble for the and we were well looked after,in fact we are booking again for September.

Lovely flat in nice town.

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent with all the facilities we could have hoped for. Situated in a nice little Spanish town, only 5 minutes from main motorway, connecting Granada and Malaga. We found this to be a brilliant place to locate oneself, with Nerja being only 25 minutes away by car. Rob and his wife were very accomodating, they stayed up till 00.45 to welcome us!! All in all a fantastic experience, one I'd be happy to repeat. David Thomson

There are some excellent beaches along the Costa Tropical, the nearest is 22 kilometres away at Salobrena and it takes about 25 minutes to get there by car. A bit further away there are also fabulous beaches La Joya, La Rijana, La Herradura - to name but a few!


Flights have now resumed to Granada airport from London with British Airways (half an hour away). Flights from most UK airports fly into Malaga, 78 miles/125km (around an hour & half) from us by car. Airlines that fly to Malaga include British Airways ( from Heathrow from £39, Flybe ( from Exeter and Southampton from £60, and easyJet ( from Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton from £50.

Hiring a car is advisable.


There are a few shops, restaurants and bars in the town, with plenty more scattered around the valley.

For a much larger range of shops, markets, wonderful Tapas bars and restaurants, Granada is only twenty minutes away.
