Description (written by the owner)

Spacious country villa on two levels with two separate appartement fully equiped. Ideal for group of friends or two family sharing. Each part can have its own privacy.

Close to the Valle Tropical with its orchards of avocado, lemon, custard apple and orange trees, the house is situated near the white village of Jete and Itrabo.

Set in extensive grounds of almond, avocado, olive, grapevine trees, etc.. This spacious, charming, Moorish and Andalucian style house is on two different terraces. Each part has its own kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedrooms.

This house is ideal for sharing as each part provided privacy if wanted.

Recently refurbished to a high standard, it is very private with its own entrance and has 4 comfortable double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and the use of a private pool.

There are two large terraces and porches with spectacular views of the mountains and surrounding countryside; the blue waters of the Mediterranean can also be seen from the terraces. Sipping a long cool drink and watching the sunset from the terrace is a truly unforgettable experience.

Both sitting rooms are spacious and open directly onto a shaded, comfortably furnished terrace. A large gas barbecue is situated on one of the terrace for `alfresco´dining.

The modern country kitchens are fully equipped with a 4 burner hob, an electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge freezer, kettle, coffee makers and a wide selection of utensils.

The house is close to the charming villages of Jete, Otívar, and Lentejí - there you will find a variety of reputable local restaurants where the food is predominantly locally grown. Supermarkets, a daily fruit, vegetable and fish market and a weekly clothes and pottery market can all be found in the nearby town of Almuñécar.

For walkers and wild life lovers,the Sierra Almijara and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada offer some wonderful walking throughout the year. Keen birdwatchers will regularly see such birds as kestrels, brown eagles, hoopoe birds, honey buzzards and many other varieties seldom seen in Northern Europe nowadays.

Other nearby beauty spots include waterfalls near Otivar and the wildlife park in the Peña Escrita. A beautiful secluded bay about 20 minutes drive away is an ideal place for enjoying the sun and swimming followed by a mojito and tapas at one of the picturesque beach bars.

Traditional white Andalusian villages are situated in the mountains about an hour´s drive from the villa.

For those who enjoy a game of golf, there is a golf course located about 15 minutes drive away in Granada Beach .

A drive of just over an hour will take you to The Alhambra and cultural attractions of Granada.

The Sierra Nevada is only 1 hour away, where you can ski some part of the year.

Fantastic house

We came back on Saturday after a 9 day stay in Cortijo Cielo y Tierra. The house is exceptional, really beautiful, very stylish decorated and with all you might need. The views are stunning and the swimming pool is soooooooooooo beautiful. We were not very lucky with the weather so that was a shame, but nothing could be done about it! Marianne is really lovely and the communication with her and with the lady who does the maintenance was great. The area is fantastic, with lots of walks in the mountains or places to go for a swim in the sea. However, unless you go to Las Alpujarras or at least for a long distance, it is difficult to find charming towns as you do in the Cadiz are with the pueblos blancos. I missed that from the costa tropical, as Almuñecar, Jete, Itravo and Otivar all lack in character or a typical andalucian old village. I am Spanish and have been going to Andalucia for many years during the Easter holidays and I was expecting to have pretty villages nearby but they all lack the spirit I was looking for. However, the house is not at fault and it is a house I would love to have for myself! It works great for two families and the fireplaces for the evening are absolutely fantastic. So, housewise, 9/10. If you like mountain and nature, 10/10, if you like charming villages, 4/10. As it says in the description, car is essential and the roads to the house are quite winding so be ware especially when the clouds are low as sometimes you cannot see the road ahead! We have had a really lovely holiday and would love to return to this house.

Family villa in Jete bird spotters paradise!

We felt confident our holiday was going to be a success due to the great communication from the owner Marianne. The villa is high up in the Sierras Nevada and the views are simply breathtaking, hours could be spent watching sunrise and sunset. We had never seen an eagle in flight before this holiday and by the end of it we'd seen about 20! Along with so many other bird species it was terrific. The villa itself is perfect for groups as there is room on two levels to find space and quiet time if required. The decor is wonderful, typically Andalusian and very comfortable furniture all over the property. There is no maid/cleaner do be prepared to use the washing machine and clean the loo yourself! We used the pool everyday although there were a few minor issues with the pump but fortunately nothing too severe. The gardens are very established and fruit trees and vines grow beautifully in the grounds. We ate figs and grapes everyday. Really loved the area great drives into the mountains, Granada is only an hour on the superb roads. The local towns are all worth a visit as are the beaches. A visit to the caves at Nerja are a must. Overall the holiday was a great success and we would recommend the villa for its charm, reasonable cost and location. Great place.

Beautiful villa in beautiful surroundings

This is an amazing villa. Spotlessly clean, fantastically equipped with everything one could need. We were a group of six and the two joined up but different floors in the villa worked very well. The pool area is brilliant and we spent a lot of our time there. Lovely plants all around. So private and peaceful. Marianne, the owner, was so helpful and hospitable. The area is rural surrounded by picturesque mountains. We couldn't have wished for better and will definitely be back again. Thank you so much.

a wonderful stay in the Spanish mountains

This country villa has everything you need for a nice holiday in the Spanish mountains. The villa is comfortable, spacious, lovely decorated and offers privacy when shared with friends or family. The view is marvelous. With nice weather you can spend most of the time on the great terraces and near the pool. With some rain the rooms inside are very agreeable. If you love the rough country around you, you can walk for hours. A car is definitely needed because shops are 20 minutes drive away. The owner is very kind and friendly; our questions were always quickly answered. This part of Spain is not so touristic and really a nice place for people who enjoy nature. We can recommend it certainly!

Heaven on Earth

Heaven on Earth is how I translated the name of this beautiful property and it is indeed a prayer without words. The spectacular location was awesome - an ever changing sky above the mountains - the peace, tranquility and beauty are magical. The house lacked nothing in equipment and comfort and Marianne was a kind and thoughtful hostess. Our plans for exploration and touring the area were swiftly put aside as we soaked up the sunshine - in company with the resident lounging lizards - and enjoyed the beautiful gardens and pool.

Fantastic house in real Spain

This is a fantastic house if you like nature and privacy. It got also amazing views on the mountains and the coast. The house gives you the feeling to be in real Spain. The inside as well as outside is very proper and got a wonderfull garden and nice pool and different terraces, from each you have a great view. The house is good located near to Salobrena and Almunecar and near beautiful hiking routes. I would definitely recommend this house!
