Bed & Breakfast / Village House in Albunuelas, Granada, Spain
Situated in the
pretty working village of Albunuelas, where you will see more working
mules than motor vehicles, is the sympathetically restored Casa Azul. After
12 months hard work by your hosts Mary Ann and Ken on this run down ruin,
it is now a small, friendly B&B in the centre of the village.
facilities consist of three twin bedded double rooms each with its
own on-suite shower/bathroom. One of these is large enough to accommodate
an extra single bed or cot if required. In each room you will find
tea and coffee making facilities. There is a combined lounge/dining room
on the ground floor with English T/V and radio, CD player with a good selection
of discs, small libary and a selection of games. For those cooler
winter evenings there is a wood burning stove. Opening off the lounge is
a shady internal courtyard with a selection of plants, small, traditional
fountain and table and chairs. On the roof terrace there is a splash
pool, BBQ and sun loungers all for the exclusive use of our guests.
We also offer a studio apartment.
a few minutes walk of Casa Azul you will find four bars and three mini-markets
which can supply all your needs. Two of the bars have restaurants that
serve traditional Spanish food at very reasonable prices and all
of them give free tapas with every drink. For the times when you would
rather eat in, we can by arrangement supply evening meals in the dining
room or you can talk to Mary Ann and she will let you use her
kitchen. However we have a large fridge/freezer for your use so that
you can plan pleasant evening BBQ's on the roof terrace over looking
the magnificent Sierra Nevadas. There is of course a plentiful supply of
utensils plus a pair of binoculars so that the nature lovers can watch
the eagles as they hunt up and down the gorge.
The Lecrin Valley
(Moorish for The Valley of Happiness) is a world removed from the noise
and bustle of every day life. Here you can walk among oranges, lemons,
pomegranates, figs, almonds, grapes, avocados and olives. The wild flowers
and plants are spectacular especially in the spring while the bougainvillea,
wild jasmine and oleander bloom all summer. Lake Beznar in the bottom
of the gorge is about 25 miles round and will provide a weeks walking without
leaving the valley.
bird life around the lake is both numerous and varied, but it was the fantastic
carp fishing that led us to discover this wonderful area. In a previous
life we owned three busy fishing tackle shops in the UK and now we can
supply any guests with all that they require to enjoy the sport on offer.
There is no
charge for the use of the equipment but if you want to fish you must have
an Andalucian license which we will obtain for you. The cost is approx
10 Euros and we need four weeks notice, a photo copy of your passport and
your original English license. For non walkers and anglers there is plenty
to keep you occupied.
