Description and characteristics of the villa

Casería del Carmen is an Andalusian Villa (“Cortijo” in spanish) dating from the 18thcentury and located at the foot of Sierra Nevada, in the Costa Tropical of Granada, southern Spain.

Spacious home to enjoy your holidays with family or friends, at the door of La Alpujarra,  at seven minutes from the  mediterranean sea and away from touristic crowds and city noises. Split over two floors plus attic and situated in a peaceful Cortijo with private pool, the villa offers guests an unrivalled level of comfort, space and lodge retreat style. Casería del Carmen is very Andalusian in it’s built and detail, full of character but at the same time modernized for comfort.

It’s very well positioned for nice mountain drives towards the Sierra Nevada mountains or La Alpujarra, for exploring the various coastal towns peppered along the “Costa del Sol” or visiting marvelous cities like Granada, Málaga, Almería or Nerja.
