Interaction with guests
Patrick, the resident British owner lives alone in the main farmhouse. Here to help with any issues or problems you may encounter, offer help, advice or simply chat. Will respect your privacy and keep out of the way if you prefer solitude. The gardens (half an acre) were designed with privacy in mind and easy to lose oneself amongst the lush planting and various patios.

About the neighbourhood
The local area has so many attractions for the independent traveller: of course GRANADA city with it's famous Alhambra and cathedral essential to visit, but also the white villages of LAS ALPUJARRAS & LECRIN VALLEY. Along the coast find many unspoilt fishing villages and secluded coves and beaches around; Salobreña, Calahonda, Almuñécar, La Herradura and Nerja. Alternatively, many visitors staying here are reluctant to leave the exotic tropical gardens - simply spending days and long evenings relaxing, reading, dining 'al fresco' or enjoying the swimming pool
Getting around
Car almost essential as the property is 3kms from the nearby market town of Motril or local beaches (unless you plan to simply rest in the gardens or poolside 24/7). Limited bus servive into Motril from the village, just 5 daily. Of course taxis plentiful - ask for further details if non-driver.
