People with soul will adore it here – the lacklustre can go somewhere else. It’s an adventure from the moment you spy the stunning building (a credit to architect owner Laurence) cradled by rocky crags and lush vegetation in the National Park. All is designed to arouse the senses: colourful, sumptuous bedrooms (homemade chocolates lie in wait) with fresh flowers, the crispest cotton and brightly-tiled bathrooms; a cinema in the basement with a popcorn machine and organic ice cream; a gym for the righteous, a snooker table, two seating areas with enormous tables, a TV room for children, a terrace for gazing, pool (with honesty bar) and a garden for wandering – even friendly dogs to stroke. The decor is eclectic, art is everywhere and there are some miraculous ‘finds’. Help yourself to an unhurried breakfast – oranges to squeeze, fresh bread to toast, goats cheese, jamon and tomatoes from the allotment; tapas and wine flow at lively, seasonal lunches. Take the whole place with your family or friends, throw a party, come as a couple with children or alone for a retreat; all who join in with the spirit of the place are made very welcome here. Extraordinary.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Laurence Seidler

  • Want to stretch the legs? We tailor make walks for you in the Sierra Nevada National park which surrounds us. Feel free to grab a hat from the hall and ask for a pic-nic and don't be suprised if our dogs come with you to ensure your safe return.
  • Look out the window. If it's snowing then have a good breakfast and we suggest you take a 45 minute drive to the ski centre, burn off some calories then come back to raid our wine cellar and dream by our open fireplace.
  • Build a house, write a book and see Granada before you die. Well, that's what I did. Seriously, this city, 20 minutes from us is a total sensory delight and consistently voted one of the three best cities in Europe.
  • It's hot and having lazed by our mineral swimming pool you feel like some salt with your water, Grab a towel, get in the car and drive 20 minutes. The Mediterranean awaits!
  • Maybe you've read the books - South from Granada and Driving Over Lemons - now experience the unique hill culture of the Alpujarras. We'll tell you the best places to eat and where to buy their world famous ham.
  • Exhausted from doing all the above? Have a quiet day and wander to the local village, a 12 minute stroll walking with water. Then back for a movie and dinner in the central courtyard?
