Lemon Grove is a beautiful, old typical Andalusian country property made up of a farmhouse with an adjoining cottage, large grounds and a pool. It is set in the hamlet of Llano Almendra in Comares in Andalucia, and can accommodate groups of up to 14 people. Perfect for a holiday with family or friends.
If you are looking for slick TVs and air conditioning, then this probably isn’t the place for you – but if you are ready to relax, get into exploring the local rural landscape and villages, sample the fantastic Andalusian food, cook with wonderful finds from the local shops and markets, and live at a different pace, then you will be right at home. Listen out for the goat bells in the evening, and if you are quick enough, walk down to the river bed, and you will catch a glimpse of the herds of goats on their evening walk. It’s quite magical. It is one of the oldest properties in the area (dating back some 300 years or so), and overlooks the fantastic orange and lemon groves peppered with avocado trees too. This wonderful and historic collection of buildings are all attached to each other and allow full flexibility in allowing family groups and friends to have their own space whilst sharing the use of the pool and grounds.
Lemon Grove is set in a hamlet which has hardly changed in the last 200 years. The whole area is steeped in Moorish history and the location means you can switch from the peace and tranquility of the surrounding countryside, and the beach life, local towns and villages in the surrounding area. The city of Malaga is just 1 hour away, and Granada with its stunning Alhambra Palace is 2 hours away. There are lots of walks in the surrounding area, which is great for bird watching, and you can also go mountain biking and horse riding. The Nerja caves with its pretty seaside village are 45 minutes away, or head to Marbella (1 hour) to see some glitz and glamour! Gibraltar, Ronda and Seville are all reachable with 2 – 3 hours.
