A complete gem of a house in a very welcoming Andalusian mountain village.
The building was originally two old village houses, which we have joined together and converted with much care. It retains the old beams, very thick walls and many other features which are typical of the old houses of this area. The result is a very comfortable and enchanting house in which to stay with a real family feel to it. It will give you the chance to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Two open-plan staircases and the pool mean that the house is not safe for small children.
It is situated in the old (and prettiest) part of the village where the little narrow streets were made to accommodate mules rather than cars. Behind the house is a terraced garden filled with flowers and a lemon tree and with a small swimming pool. From the railings at the end of the garden you look down onto a valley of smallholdings with the Mediterranean in the distance. Inmaculada, our housekeeper, comes every day (except Sundays) to make the beds, empty the bins and sweep the terrace.
Downstairs there is a sitting room with comfortable sofas and a dining room with French windows which open onto an outside eating area. There is also a kitchen and a small double bedroom with its own bathroom. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms (one with a terrace) each with its own bathroom and air conditioning. All the bedrooms have twin beds and the bathrooms have heated towel rails and infra red heaters. In the winter the house keeps wonderfully warm with oil-filled radiators and a wood burning stove.
A two minute walk takes you to the main square of Ojen where there are many shops, tapas bars, restaurants and an excellent market on Saturday mornings.
Above the village the town hall has built an Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis court, state of the art gym and a restaurant with the most spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. It is hard to believe that the coast and the tourists are only 8 kms away, because this is still a traditional Spanish village with a marvellously relaxed way of life. We are on the edge of the Sierra de las Nieves nature park which provides some wonderful walks.
