The outdoor area features large refrigeration units, double sink units, gas cooker and oven, cutlery and crockery, music system, TV for video games plus dvd player, large BBQ, bar stools and table and chairs.
The large private swimming pool (10 mtrs x 7.5 mtrs with steps at one corner) is surrounded on all sides by sunbathing areas with sun umbrellas and sunloungers - all set amid flower beds and palm trees. The swimming pool can be enjoyed all year round as there is a domed cover structure with door that can be pulled across the pool for the chillier winter months. Thoughtfully placed night lighting means the grounds can be enjoyed around the clock. The gardens offer children plenty of space to play within.
In the main house the sunny kitchen affords all the amenities, from dishwasher, full-sized fridge/freezer, gas hob and electic oven offering plenty of work and storage space. The kitchen window looks over the patio and barbecue area, which is conveniently accessed from the kitchen through a back door.
The comfortable sitting room is well equipped with CD and DVD players, wi-fi, free-to-air English, German and French speaking satellite channels and Spanish TV reception, books and games with large flatscreen TV. A wood burning stove adds the perfect cosy touch after a day of skiing, or for taking the chill off the cooler winter evenings.
Sunshine streams into the 3 bedrooms (one double with ensuite bathroom including jacuzzi bath), a second double and one twin bedroom with bunk beds. The house bathroom is large and spacious and there is a separate WC.
Villa Maria Louisa is a five-minute drive from Motril, the largest town on the Costa Tropical de Granada. Here you have access to modern grocery stores, hundreds of authentic eateries and excellent shopping from luxurious to bargain. The fresh food market is open every day except Sunday, and the rastro-style mercadillo comes to town every Tuesday and Friday. This is all five minutes from your holiday home. A car is essential.
Activities abound nearby. Many of our guests have enjoyed horseback riding, offered by a reliable outfit quite close to the villa. Others prefer hiking along many of the suggested routes in the area. Everyone can appreciate Granada, rich in culture and history and undoubtedly the jewel of the province. A mere 50 minutes from the property, home of the famous Alhambra Palace, this gorgeous capital is a must-see. Shopping, culture, history, fiestas, plazas, restaurants, nightlife...Granada has it all. It also is home to the Parque de Ciencias, a new hands-on science museum, which is a joy for visitors of all ages.
Between Villa Maria Louisa and Granada lie the charming Lecrin Valley and Alpujarras villages. Countless pueblos selling traditional crafts and offering mouth-watering hearty fare await your exploration, most within an hour's drive from this villa.
Or spend a day wandering the seaside. Lively Nerja, ever popular with tourists, is half an hour down the coast. Closer by, Almunecar and Salobrena are sizable traditional Mediterranean villages, both well worth a visit.
