CASA AMARILLA, very big family villa with pool and wifi
This pale yellow house was built in 2008, and combines well-planned accommodation and a peaceful location, with a vibrant village setting.
Due to its location on the village edge, it has stunning views from almost every room.
This is a secretive house - you cannot see much of it from the street.
But once you are inside, you realise how large and spread out it is.
It is ideal for a house full of people who want to spend some time together - but not all the time! It is also an all-the-year-round house, and some of our best times there are in the autumn, winter or spring.
We love the almond and orange blossom in the spring, and the changing colours in the autumn and winter, beautiful for walking and exploring.
The climate is wonderful - we have breakfasted or lunched out in nearby restaurants in every month of the year.
If you like cities and culture, Granada is on your doorstep, and Cordoba and Jaen just a couple of hours away.
There is so much to see in this colourful Moorish part of Spain.
With well-stocked bookshelves, its own pool, and games in the cellar, there is plenty for everyone to do, and plenty of space to spread out in.
It is tiled throughout and comfortably furnished.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are on the lowest level, for the sake of coolness, and they open onto the garden and pool.
The salon and large kitchen are on street level, and open onto a large balcony with steps down to the garden and pool.
On the top level, there is a very large roof terrace for sunbathing and stargazing.
The pool has a stunning location, with a cooking and dining area attached.
The garden is on three levels, the pool on one level, a rose garden on the middle level, and an orchard on the bottom level.
From the orchard, the large games-room is accessible.

The private swimming pool is 4 x 8 metres. It is unheated.
It has been designed with an even depth throughout, which makes it ideal for volleyball and other water games.
On the next level of the garden there is an enormous olive tree casting welcome shade in summer months, and rose bushes.
On the lower level there is a small orchard with almond and fig trees, which are generously laden in summer.
There is a door from the lower level into the cool rustic cellar area, part of which is given over to a full-size table tennis table, paints and easel, darts, table football and board games.TripAdvisor property ID 3104334...Read more
