Set deep in the heart of the Spanish hinterland between Granada (1 hour's drive) and the Coast (1/2 hour's drive), Palacete de Cazulas dates back to 1492. The house has been elegantly and thoughtfully renovated, preserving its unique atmosphere and historical features, including some of the original furniture and decorations. The property comprises of the mansion, where most of the accommodations are located, a separate cottage with two bedrooms, spacious ornamental gardens, private chapel, pool, tennis court and outside summer bar/eating area, all surrounded by magnificent views of the hillsides and valley.

Guest areas in the main building include a vaulted drawing room with original stone fireplace, an attractive wood panelled dining room, and a library and games room/museum. The ornamental Moorish-style gardens have been laboriously restored to their former glory. Ancient cypress hedges border an attractive swimming pool fed by a natural spring. Granada, the ski resort of Solynieve (Sierra Nevada), and the Alpujarra Mountains, are just a few of the numerous attractions that lie within a short drive of the property.
