Located in the pretty village of Pinos del Valle, Los Espada contains a wealth of interesting and original architectural features. The house is split over three levels and provides spacious accommodation for up to 12 guests. The main entrance hall opens into a wonderful galleried interior courtyard featuring an Arabic fountain as the focal point. The covered walkways lead to stylishly decorated rooms; a combination of local and ethnic artefacts and furnishings blend perfectly in this typically Moorish house. The property also features an open Mirador on the top floor, a three sided covered gallery ideal for relaxing. To the rear of the property is an attractive walled courtyard containing an ionised swimming pool with a Jacuzzi in one corner. A terraced area with teak garden furniture is an ideal spot for barbequing and "al fresco" dining; a variety of shrubs and a pretty fountain add to the tranquil ambience. The village contains a good local supermarket as well as few little bars. Beznar Lake is nearby and is a great spot for a picnic. Granada is approximately a 40 minute drive away and a visit to the historic city is highly recommended. A number of activities can be organised locally, including horse riding, tennis and cycling.
