To assure your safety during the Covid-19 pandemic we've introduced new disinfection protocols in line with the recommendations of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We're also leaving our house empty for longer periods between guests and are offering a self check-in facility to reduce contact. Cuesta Vinas is a small hamlet famed for its naturally carbonated spring water. Situated just 2 km out of the village of Valor, (a gentle 30 minute stroll), this casita is perched on the hillside overlooking the hamlet and offers peace and tranquillity without being remote. Within the 4000 square meters of land you will find a newly planted orchard, 4m diameter plunge pool with sun bathing area and a shaded outdoor dining area, all with fantastic views down the valley to the sierras...To assure your safety during the Covid-19 pandemic we've introduced new disinfection protocols in line with the recommendations of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We're also leaving our house empty for longer periods between guests and are offering a self check-in facility to reduce contact. Cuesta Vinas is a small hamlet famed for its naturally carbonated spring water. Situated just 2 km out of the village of Valor, (a gentle 30 minute stroll), this casita is perched on the hillside overlooking the hamlet and offers peace and tranquillity without being remote. Within the 4000 square meters of land you will find a newly planted orchard, 4m diameter plunge pool with sun bathing area and a shaded outdoor dining area, all with fantastic views down the valley to the sierras of Gador and the Contraviersa. A second casita (Casa Verde 1359602) is also available to rent but the two are totally private from each other and each has it's own pool, gardens and terraces.The spacious casita is open-plan, divided into a well equipped dining kitchen, sitting area with an antique wood burning stove and fabulous views down the valley, and a comfortable bedroom area which can be curtained off for privacy if you so wish. The house is surrounded by extensive terraces with both sunny and shaded areas. The shaded, outdoor dining space is accessed from the kitchen by french windows and seats 4 in comfort. It is equipped with both a BBQ and a wood fired earth oven and pots of fresh herbs are available for your use. The sunny front terrace has sunbeds in addition to a further table and seating for 4 whilst to the rear is an outdoor solar heated shower. The house is traditionally built with shutters which keep out the fierce heat in July and August whilst ensuring a cosy space during the colder months of winter. The kitchen area is fully equipped with 4 ring gas hob, fridge with icebox and sink. There is ample crockery, glassware, cutlery etc. A large dining table provides seating for up to 3 people in comfort with french windows opening onto the outdoor dining area. The living area is focused around the old wood burner with comfortable seating for 4 and contains a selection of books and games for evening entertainment. French windows give access to the front sunbathing terrace. The bedroom area has a double bed and plenty of storage space and can be screened from the rest of the house by full length curtains hung from the wooden beam. The separate, tiled bathroom contains shower, washbasin and wc. There is wireless broadband and a speaker system suitable for an MP3 player available for your use in the casita. We do not recommend drinking the tap water although it is fine when boiled, but there is a naturally carbonated spring located just 5 minutes walk from the house where you can replenish the provided containers.Please be aware that this house is located in mountainous countryside making it unsuitable for anyone with limited mobility.

Excellent cortijo with various lovely spots to hang out. We enjoyed the plunge pool very much as well as the excellent views. Great for bird spotting and star gazing. Perfect place if you want to explore the east Alpujarras. And ... free carbonated mineral water....More
