This is a beautiful little newly restored farm cottage in the foothills of the Almijara mountains of Andalucia designed, furnished & decorated by a sculptor & his wife. There is a 9m long 1.2m wide & 60cm deep plunge-pool to cool off in that is set in a sunken garden, the view is to the North & the white mountain village of Frigiliana & Nerja on the coast.

The space
Situation: "el Morusco" sits in the steep foothills of the Almijara mountain nature reserve & between three villages, Torrox, Frigiliana & Nerja. The roads are windy & narrow, with magnificent views of both mountains & sea. Granada, offering the Alhambra Moorish Palace & the Sierra Nevada ski resort is an hour & a half drive away. Cordoba & Seville two hours. We are also close enough to Morocco to be able to spend a day in Tangiers.

Frigiliana: Frigiliana is a beautiful whitewashed mountain village 6 km. from the coastal town Nerja. The old town dates back to the Phoenicians, the narrow cobbled streets wind between white terraced Moorish houses. The village sits on the edge of a mountain reserve that boasts many wonderful walks. Both towns offer numerous restaurants, bars & other entertainments.


Winter: From October through April there is always a possibility of rain, but now the chance of it is so remote, that we have come to welcome it when it does. It is a perfect time of year for those who enjoy the mountains, walking or exploring the surrounding towns & cities. Granada’s Alhambra, Seville & Cordoba loose the unbearable heat of summer & you have the tourist areas basically to your selves. Christmas & New Year are normally sunny & all of the restaurants are open, although most work with reservation on the festive nights. The Spanish celebrate New Year on the street, it begins with spectacular firework displays in every city, town & village & festivity continues well into the next morning. Spring here begins in February with the almond blossom & yellow clover that line the roads. It’s a good time to visit the little villages around our area & in the Alpujarra mountains south of Granada. If you are into skiing, the Sierra Nevada is famous for its slopes & is less than 2 hours away.

Guest access
Description: Built designed & decorated by a sculptor & painter, 'el Morusco' is a unique, romantic holiday experience. It is a semidetached house that has been carefully designed by the same owner to maximise privacy to both properties. “el Morusco”
The three rooms attached to “la Bolina” (also on bnb) came up for sale & Maggie & I decided that we would have to buy them to assure the privacy of our little holiday home.
I have converted the rooms into what I hope is a continuation of & unique version of my design for ”la Bolina”, maintaining the open plan, respecting the original architecture while working with introducing light & the luxury of our magnificent outdoor landscape. As before I have done the woodwork, kept the concrete floor & pebble effect, attended to detail & decorated with Maggie's paintings, my furniture & sculpture.
The garden is minimal, sticking where possible to indigenous plants to save on water & to maintain a link to the surrounding spectacular nature. Planting almost 20 olive trees that had been pulled up for a mango plantation have converting the area between the two houses into an olive grove that has become a natural “no mans land” giving privacy & maintaining the special feeling of being alone on this amazing piece of the planet.
There are various seating areas each with its own special view & ambiance, a BBQ with sea views, the sunken garden looking to the mountains & a breakfast table under the grapevine.

Other things to note
The house has WiFi. There is a large screen with a hard drive & a good selection of film, you are welcome to bring your own plugin if you have your own taste in movies. The music player also uses usb - we have a collection of music on a pen drive & of course you should bring your own should you wish to have your own music with you.

Location

Frigiliana, Andalucía, Spain

The houses are about 15 km from the villages of Torrox, Nerja & Frigiliana but it takes a relaxed 20 - 30 minutes scenic drive through the foothills to get to them.
Frigiliana is a very picturesque whitewashed village & nestles amongst the Almijara Mountains. Nerja is an old small fishing town, very popular, has numerous bars & restaurants as well as a choice of beaches. Torrox is the closest of the three villages, most of the people there are farmers who have land & a house in the hills that they go to each day & stay there during the olive picking season.
