PLEASE BE AWARE THAT I CANNOT ACCEPT CHILDREN UNDER 10 YEARS OLD, NOR THE INFIRM, DUE TO SPIRAL STAIRS AND POOL ACCESS. Guests' quotes: 'Beautiful property in fantastic location' 'Luxury villa in a beautiful village' 'A glimpse of paradise on earth!' Casa Convento provides an exceptional standard of comfort, style and character which we feel will make your holiday a '5-star' event! It has been designed, built and furnished by me, Suzanne, the owner, using the very best 'ingredients'. Positioned on the ground and first floors, both the very large en suite bedrooms are of similar luxury and beauty so no need to quarrel over who has the 'master' bedroom!

Guests' quotes: 'Beautiful property in fantastic location' 'Luxury villa in a beautiful village' 'A glimpse of paradise on earth!' Casa Convento provides an exceptional standard of comfort, style and character which we feel will make your holiday a '5-star' event! It has been designed, built and furnished by me, Suzanne, the owner, using the very best 'ingredients'. Positioned on the ground and first floors, both the very large en suite bedrooms are of similar luxury and beauty so no need to quarrel over who has the 'master' bedroom! (The king doubles can be split into singles as required) The beds are super-comfortable Danish made and there are blackout lined silk and linen curtains. All towels and beach towels are provided, as well as robes and spa slippers (not always new - we're not a hotel!) The bathrooms have comfortably sized baths and power showers and double basins. Heated towel rails. Hairdryers are provided. There is also a separate utility and shower room, which includes a washing/drying machine. The open plan living space on the elevated 2nd floor is stunning, with fantastic views from the dining terrace over the village and hills to the sea beyond. (In winter months the Rif mountains of Morocco can be seen at dusk). There is a built in BBQ and a pyramid gas heater. The living room also has a double sofa bed for occasional extra guests. (Surcharge of £30 applies) There is a log burner for winter evenings which lights easily and heats the whole room in 15 minutes. The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of gadgets and plenty of utensils and dishes etc. There are also Spanish cook books to tempt your culinary skills. There is a cargo lift to bring up the shopping, drinks, logs etc. (Strictly 40K limit) Up the spiral staircase on one side of the living room is the large sun terrace, with comfortable loungers and privacy/shade screening as needed. There's also a hot and cold shower. The views from here are arguably the best in the village! The breathtakingly beautiful wildness of the National Tejeda park is right behind the house. Our small, shallow private pool (2.80m x 5.30m) complete with water spout, is solar heated (temperature is dependent on the amount of sunshine) and sits in its own very private 'Moroccan' patio. Casa Convento has the advantage of being part of the delightful 'pueblo blanco' of Canillas de Aceituno, while maintaining its own intimate atmosphere and privacy. The National Park is immediately at its back with the panorama over the village and hills to Lake Vinuela and the sea below. A perfect hideaway for walking, reading, swimming, relaxing, or take a 2 minute stroll down to to the village for a 'fino' sherry and tapas or an authentically regional meal at one of its good-value Spanish restaurants, or pack the in-house picnic knapsack and head up one of the hill paths. But the beaches, international shopping, night-life and golf courses are only 25 minutes away... CHANGEOVER SATURDAY ONLY DURING HIGH SEASON (But always check with me just in case!) ENQUIRE FOR AVAILABILITY IN LOW AND MID SEASON. AIR CON AND UNDERFLOOR HEATING CHARGE IS REGISTERED VIA A DEDICATED DIGITAL METER AND CHARGED OUT OF YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT AT A RATE OF APPROXIMATELY £15 FOR TIMED USE PER INDIVIDUAL ROOM PER WEEK (BATHROOMS COUNT AS ONE AND LIVING ROOM COUNTS AS 2 ROOMS) FREE WI-FI ACCESS. SORRY - NO KIDS UNDER 10 DUE TO SPIRAL STAIRS TO ROOF TERRACE. THE LAYOUT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THE INFIRM. THIS IS A STRICTLY N0N-SMOKING PROPERTY.

Interaction with guests
I will suggest car hire for you which gives you a discount. On payment completion about 6 weeks before your holiday,I provide all directions, photo route in the village and can direct you to a smartphone app to use my CCTV which shows whether there is a parking space right by the house or whether you should park in the car park about 150 metres away. I also provide the key safe number which allows you to enter at your convenience (subject to time restrictions for entry on changeover) and contact numbers. There is a lot of house info in the House Book and all instructions for equipment within.

From the first moment I contacted Suzanne in 2017 her response was swift and booking was straight forward. Her advice about car hire was an excellent choice. The property itself is amazing. The views from the dining terrace, roof terrace are spectacular, there's hardly a...More

About the neighbourhood
Although only 20 minutes beautiful driving from the coast into the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda National Park, Canillas de Aceituno is a world apart from the It retains all the sights, sounds, scents and spirit of traditional Andalucian life - potted flowers decorate the narrow side-streets, mules and goats pass by studiously ignoring humanity, the fish-delivery man calls out his wares, the village ladies practice their graceful flamenco in the evening cool. From here you can walk, paint, photograph, bird-watch, picnic, listen to the cicadas, drink the local wine, sample the village speciality - the famous fennel-scented morcilla sausage, in whose honour there is a village fiesta in April Or simply enjoy the tranquility and comfort of Casa Convento. Choose your preferred venue - ...
Getting around
A car is a necessity to get the full benefit of exploring. Granada is less than 2 hours away and Cordoba under 3. You can choose to drive the rural route over the hills or take the motorways from the coast. There are many small villages of great beauty to explore around Canillas de Aceituno.
