Casa de los Espejos, Alhama de Granada
Delightful 250-year-old Andalucian town house, called "The House of Mirrors". It boasts 360-degree views from its rooftop terrace. Inside, furnishings are eclectic and rustic – from travels throughout Spain, South America, Thailand and India. It has four bedrooms, and a large sitting room, dining room and games room.
Casa de los Espejos or “The House of Mirrors” is a stunning 250 year old, four bedroom house in the charming Andalucian town of Alhama de Granada, southern Spain. After a painstaking restoration project lasting three years, it was listed and protected in 2008 for its historical interest by the Council of Andalucia.
The house sleeps up to eight people although couples are also welcome. A large sitting room, kitchen, dining room, games room and additional upstairs sitting room provide plenty of indoor space for everyone to spread out and seek some peace and quiet if so desired. The crowning glory of the property has to be its roof terrace, which has spectacular, commanding 360° views over the town, the church, the castle, the main plaza and the rolling patchwork of agricultural land into the distance.
Nestled deep in the heart of Andalucia, the spa-town of Alhama de Granada is described in The Rough Guide to Andalucía as ‘one of the unsung gems of Granada province.’
It is an ideal base for cultural holidays due to it’s proximity to Granada city and many other historical Andalucian cities such as Cordoba, Seville and Malaga. It is also superbly located for walking, cycling, climbing, skiing and other such activity based holidays. The dramatic and varied landscapes, architecture, local customs and fiestas also lend themselves wonderfully to artistic breaks such as painting or photographic holidays. The Mediterranean coast is 45 minutes due south of Alhama.
