Overview

As soon as we caught sight of this stunning property perfectly named El Mirador, we fell instantaneously in love.

It was spring 2018 and not just the house, but the location exceeded our expectations - boasting sweeping vistas across the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

We couldn’t wait to see it live on our site, knowing we had found this fabulous Finca that our clients were sure to adore.

The beautifully presented whitewashed home sits on a towering limestone gorge, perched in a glorious position for making the most of those pretty panoramic views and offering a trail that leads down to a small river.

Everything feels tapered towards experiencing the joy of countryside life. From plucking fruit straight from the trees to collecting eggs from the chickens in the morning.

Apples, walnuts, sweet figs, fresh berries, pears and peaches – this place is an open-air pantry.

You don’t have to worry about getting your hands dirty; both the chickens and the gardens are discreetly tended once a week early in the morning by the visiting caretaker, leaving you free to enjoy the property in perfect privacy and seclusion throughout your stay.

Yet, despite the countrified vibes – the villa delivers more than its share of modern bliss. The soft lawned gardens that wrap around the swimming pool, the abundance of natural shade, the nooks and crannies for curling up with a favourite book, and the terrace for drinking in those splendid views – you may never tire of living life outdoors here.

With so many kick-back and relax spaces – everyone can pick their own corner to chill in before returning together at the end of the day.

Privacy is at a premium in this elevated Andalusian spot and we didn’t see another soul in sight overlooking the property during our visit.

Children will be in their seventh heaven at this villa – especially when they spy the tree hut with its narrow stairs and divine den like space.

While smaller children should be supervised due to the steepness of the stairs, older children have their own cosy retreat for secret meetings and first-class imaginative play. The fact that the pool is gated will also encourage parents to heave a sigh of relief.

Inside, the stylish side of Andalucía provides an elegant welcome. The owner drawing on their experience as an interior designer weaves tasteful touches throughout.

You won’t find any Ikea furniture here – instead traditional materials and colours keep things unique.

We especially liked the traditional bathroom brimming with Andalusian tiles. Note, you won’t find king sized beds here – but with high quality mattresses and bedding we didn’t find this an issue.

There’s a lot to love about this property, although those seeking to be perched close to the ocean may find the location a slight drawback.

Still, if you are happy enough with plenty of day trips on your doorstep then you won’t be disappointed.

The splendour of Granada’s glorious Alhambra Palace is only 30 minutes from your door, and the picture book hilltop village of Poniente Granadino is also well within striking distance.

The Tropical Coast of Granada is 1 hour away.
