A 120 year old modest rural cottage in the dry dusty hot desert of Almeria. It is on the edge of a tiny village where only a few people live. The house (cortijo) has been restored with taste and a sense of life as it used to be. 6 kilometers away from public swimming pool, market, shops and bars in Sorbas. The place is ideal for people who like it silent, basic, pure.
45 minutes from the nearest beach (Mojacar, Aqua Amarga) and Cabo de Gata is bit more then an hour drive).

The space

Big dining kitchen with gas kit, fridge, all necessary pots and pans and plancha. A living room with the door to the West terrace and 2 bedrooms upstairs. Optional there is an extra room with fireplace and an extra bed. Garden at the front and terrace at the back where it is wonderful to have breakfast. Bathroom with shower. Little electric oven available. Most of the crockery comes from the local pottery in Sorbas. 2 hammocks. Mosquito nets. Fans. No TV. The decor is basic but tasteful.

Guest access

It is a private house attached to the house of the landlord. You can use garden and terrace privately. Own entrance and backdoor. And a LOT of space around it.

Interaction with guests

I am available for tips about the neighbourhood.
I will water the plants every day around the house.

Other things to note

It is a house on the campo. In summer it can be hot. Don't be afraid for some dust. No airco but the house with it's thick walls is cool downstairs. The bedrooms are under the roof and can be warm (close shutters during the day and open them in the evening). On the bedrooms there are fans for fresh air.

Heerlijk huis met prachtig uitzicht! Een plek om lekker tot rust te komen. Eenvoudig, maar dat heeft absoluut zijn charme. Ik zou er niks aan willen veranderen. Karin, een uitstekende gastvrouw, kan je alles over de omgeving vertellen en geeft je een fijn gevoel!

La situation du logement est idéale pour visiter la province d'Almeria. Le site du logement est fantastique et constitue un véritable havre de paix. La maison traditionnelle est confortable et splendide. L'accueil est clairement extraordinaire. Karin est très prévenante et à l'écoute des éventuelles demandes de ces hôtes. N'hésitez pas, c'est idyllique, allez-y !
