Rooms in Farmhouse, Sierra Nevada, Andalusia, Spain

Overview

De Balsa is located at 1200 meters altitude in a beautiful hiking area at the foot of the Sierra Nevada between almond and olive groves. The Sierra Nevada National Park is an excellent place for hiking, mountain biking (we have two ATB’s) or horseback riding. From our ground floor lounge you have a marvellous view on the Picón de Jeres and from our house you can walk right into the mountains. Two villages are within walking distance (approx. 1 km.). There is a supermarket, bank, vegetable shop and several bars and restaurants. You will find silence and clean air, space and security.

On the ground floor we have an apartment available, with double bed and a sofa bed, shower and kitchen, dining room and wood stove and gas stove.

On the first floor we have 5 rooms with individual entrance from the terrace. One room with a double bed, one 3 person room with a double bed and a single bed, one with a single bed, one with a bunk bed and two connected rooms with 5 single beds.

The rooms have no heating and the two bathrooms with showers are on the ground floor with access via an external staircase. The common kitchen-dining room (with wood stove) is on the ground floor as well. It is possible to rent an electric heater for 10 euro per night.

The terrace (100m2) has a barbecue and overlooks our olive trees and Picón de Jerez (3000 meters).

The common kitchen has a fireplace and a living room.

Eye: our rural house is not a luxury house. Our pool is in the village, and you have to share it with the other Alquifeños, but we do have dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerators, oven and microwave.

For ten years we went on holiday every year to the Sierra Nevada in Andalusia. Friends of ours had a holiday home there that they rented out. When they announced they were moving in 2005, we fell so in love with this area of Andalusia that we immediately decided to look for something for ourselves. Not long after that, we found “La Balsa”, an abandoned goat barn that we transformed into our own holiday farm in southern Spain after six years of building. The Balsa is not a luxury villa. Our swimming pool is in the village, and we share it with the other locals, but we have la Balsa (water basin 100 meters away) for swimming and of course hot and cold running water, showers, toilets, refrigerators, a freezer and a washing machine and dishwasher.
