Caserio El Olivo is a very cozy apartment in the upper floor of a large, Andalusian country house surrounded by 3,000 square meters of biologically certified country with many oranges, olive, and other southern fruit trees, a large garden with playground, a child-safe pool, and green lawns in the middle of nature.
The apartment is characterized by its traditional Andalucian style, its large interiors and bright spaces. Each bedroom has an independent bathroom. Both bedrooms and the living room have a direct access to a very large, sunny terrace with great views of the garden, the valley and the mountains. All rooms and a covered terrace are on one level. Everything is tastefully decorated, well-furnished and fully equipped. The house contains all you could need (sharp kitchen knives, large red wine glasses, quality mattresses, bed linens and towels) to guarantee a restful, funny and relaxing holiday.
The swimming pool (9x4m plus a shallow part) and the lawn area surrounding it are fenced, completely childproof. The lush garden is very child-friendly with a water slide, a playground, a small soccer pitch with a goal and a giant tire swing.
The property is only 1km away from town (10-15 minutes walking distance) and still provides with all the quietness and tranquillity of pure nature to make your holiday as pleasant and relaxing as possible.
There are two other holiday houses in the property land (3000sqm) which we also rent out. The pool area is shared by all houses within the property. All holiday houses have their own garden and barbecue.
I live in the lower floor and I will make sure the peace and privacy of our guests is respected.

We would appreciate if you could water the potted plants around the house from time to time, as it would be a big help for us.

I came across the Alpujarras by chance during my journey through Spain in the mid 80's. This was about the same time as the famous book writer Chris Stewart arrived into the area. Years later he published his bestseller ‘Driving Over Lemons: An Optimist in Andalucia (The Lemons Trilogy)’ where he tells all these funny tales and amazing experiences he had in this very region. I also discovered the same sort of authentic unspoiled paradise as he did. Back then, south of Granada was very different to what it is now. The area was impoverished, there were not many cars around but lots of donkeys instead, TV was a novelty and people actually 'lived' in the bars. There was no VAT tax yet and no motorway for hundreds of miles. Granada was a day journey away and northern Europe a different planet. I was in heaven. I’ve been living in this area for almost 30 years and my children were born and grew up here. I absolutely love this region. Since then, I´ve been exploring the many things this area has to offer: hiking, skiing, cycling, snorkeling, biking, cooking, climbing and partying, of course. It´s my home and it feels like paradise!
