Where to start - a beautiful well furnished house with a supurb kitchen, large roof terrace and spectacular views over the Lecrin Valley. Easy travelling on the new motorway from Malaga. Stop at Eroski Supermarket just off the motorway at Velez de Malaga to stock up en route (open to 10.00pm Monday to Saturday).
This house is situated on a quite street in the village of Pinos de Valle, good basic shopping in the village - great bakery. Try the local red - it's the one with the minimalist labelling at the shop next to the church.
The village is surrounded by citrus and olive groves - the scents are tantalising.
The owner is unbelievably helpful - she even bought us a paella pan at our request!!
A meal or three at El Penon at Salobrena beach is a must as is a visit to the spa town of Lanjeron with its spectacular Moorish Castle (free entry).
Village and beach Spain at its best - and of course only 20 minutes drive from Grenada.
A must stay house for a fabulous...
