A peaceful, spacious, detached studio cottage only 10 mins from beach and town

Adults-only cottage in Motril with rooftop terrace
A large detached studio house situated on a rustic finca close to Motril. It has a super king sized bed (can be converted to twin beds), a new double shower and bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen plus a comfortable lounge and dining area. Outside there is a private covered porch area and guests are welcome to use the roof terrace accessed behind my house, which is also within the grounds. A perfect stopover or a comfortable, private place to return to after exploring the local area. There is plenty of parking within the grounds and WiFi included.

The local beach is only 4km and is quiet and slightly wild. This area of the coast is not mainstream tourist land but there are plenty of chiringuitos to enjoy a welcome cool drink and tapa on Motril beach. Bigger tourist centres such as Salobrena, Almunecar and Nerja are all within easy reach if you want a change. Motril town, also only 4km, is a typical Spanish town and has many shops, restaurants and bars as well as a thriving nightlife. It is steeped in history and there are many beautiful churches and museums to explore. Summer is the time for open air concerts on the beach and in town, with everything from flamenco to jazz and classical. The Calderon theatre is a wonderful place to spend an evening too.

The port, next to Motril beach, has daily ferries to Morocco with or without your car. The house is easily accessible from the new exits recently opened on the A7 and this motorway will now take you to Malaga, Granada or Almeria in just over an hour. The Alpujarra mountains with their beautiful whitewashed villages can be reached within 30mins and are a delight to explore. The Alhambra Palace is under an hour, reached by a spectacular drive, and the ski resort a further half hour up the beautiful winding road into the Sierra mountains.

Painting and walking enthusiasts are in their element with some of the most spectacular scenery and mapped walking trails within easy reach.

All in all there is something for everyone here, just laying on the beach, hiking or culture - whatever your interests! I am happy to help or give advice on local information to make your stay the best it can be!

PLEASE NOTE HOUSE RULES: Casa Azul is a non smoking environment (except outside). I can only accept 2 adults (sorry I have nowhere for extra people/children to sleep!). I do not accept pets. Guests must be aware that 2 dogs and a friendly cat live as my pets on the property and are free to roam about but are not permitted in Casa Azul. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR LONGER DURATION OPTIONS. Thankyou

A Peaceful Garden Heaven
Michele's place is wonderful. The garden is absolutely beautiful, brimming with fruits and flowers and arguably the most delicious pears in existence. Flowers, bumble bees, big skies and lush greenery is all around. The cat and dogs are just the sweetest, and made each of our days a bit brighter with their gentleness. The home itself is incredibly well equipped, cool and comfortable. Great shower! Michele is an ideal host, welcoming and warm but granting us the privacy that we were looking for. Sitting on the roof terrace watching the sun dip behind the mountains, drinking a cocktail made with fresh fruits from the garden....it couldn't get better. Perfect for a quiet getaway, and for those that want to explore the beaches of Southern Spain without crowds. It didn't take too much searching to find several empty beaches and quiet nature spots. Thank you Michele, Taz, Milly, Moe and Bufon! We know we will be back someday :)

A Peaceful, Comfortable, Secure, Clean, Spacious and Welcoming Place to Stay
From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and at home. The detached cottage is atmospheric and very clean and comfortable, with nice furnishings and a very large and comfy bed. There is a sleeping area, lounge area with TV, sofa, table and chairs, a fully equipped kitchen and modern bathroom with a large and powerful shower. There is access to a washing machine and plenty of drying area. Outside there is a large table and various chairs, sunbeds, a hammock and swinging chair. There is a wonderful roof-top patio with views of the sunset over the sea and mountains on the other side. The host, Michele, who lives in a separate house on the property, is very welcoming and is a mine of information on places to see, where to eat out, nearest supermarkets, shops etc. When we were confused about where to get the best free tapas, she took us to one of her favourites and explained the menu for us. It was a lovely evening. Michele also advised us on the best beaches, particularly for snorkelling, and had beach umbrellas to borrow. There are two friendly dogs and a cat at the property, who aren't allowed into the cottage, so no worries about allergies. They're well behaved and not pushy, so if you're not sure about dogs they're no problem. Michele grows all sorts of fruit trees and veggies on the land. We were there in October and there was a constant supply of fresh, sweet, exotic fruits! We had such a peaceful and relaxing stay and would highly recommend it for those who want something more than an apartment in a large block. It gave us a taste of what it is like to live in Spain, away from the tourists. We will definitely go there again. Getting there: You need a car, and we easily found it by putting the coordinates Michele had sent us in advance into Google Maps.

Una casa muy cómoda, agradable, relajante y bonita.
La casa es ideal para pasar unos días de relax y tranquilidad. Está en un lugar silencioso y con unas vistas preciosas de los montes. La playa está a pocos kilómetros en coche y está cerca de Calahonda y sus espectaculares calas. La vivienda tiene todos los detalles que se pueden necesitar y está muy limpia. El espacio interior es muy amplio y se puede también disponer de todo el jardín y el terreno de la casa. El porche es magnífico, con mesa para comer, hamacas. Michelle es una anfitriona encantadora. Nos traía fruta de sus árboles cada mañana. Ella vive en la casa principal de la finca y es un placer charlar con ella. Aunque te ofrece total independencia. En la cocina se dispone de café, aceite, leche, té... y todos los electrodomésticos necesarios: cafetera, tostadora, microondas... No tiene aire acondicionado, pero sí ventiladores de techo, y abriendo las ventanas la casa se refresca enseguida. En la propiedad hay dos perros encantadores y un gato. No molestan en absoluto. Hay espacio para aparcar dentro. Nosotros nos fuimos encantados, con ganas de volver. No hay nada negativo que podamos mencionar.

le calme sur la costa tropical
Une petite finca , dans l'arrière de Motril, où l'on retrouve calme et confort pour un séjour permettant repos et visite de cette partie de la Costa Tropical Andalouse: Alpujaras, Salobrena, Grenade. L'hôtesse des lieux est très attentionnée et discrète puisque occupant la maison principale de la finca. Le logement est tout à fait indépendant et l'on peut profiter du calme de l'endroit. Un jardin accessible permet de goûter les fruits, offerts par l'hôtesse , de type tropical.

5/5 Excellent

Nous avons été très heureux de notre séjour à Motril, Michèle est une hotesse chaleureuse et discrète, toujours disponible pour un bon conseil. Le studio est charmant, propre et confortable dans un délicieux jardin encore plus fleuri que sur les photos. Même si la ville de Motril n'a rien d'extraordinaire, sa situation géographique est idéale pour visiter cette magnifique partie de l'Andalousie. Notre seul regret est de ne pas être resté plus longtemps
