Lemon Grove Farmhouse & Cottages are located in a great position in a
beautiful spot amongst the Lemon Groves. It is situated between the Villages
of Benamargosa and Riogordo, in a quiet location. Between the Farmhouse and
Cottages it can sleep 17+ people.
The stylish and well equipped kitchen is designed for the chefs of the
groups to still be involved in a group environment although all 3 properties
have kitchen facilities, barbecue, indoor and alfresco dining facilities.
The Farmhouse has the better set up and the lovely covered terrace is just
outside itís door and families and groups will migrate to that area once the
dinner bell is rung !! There is room to seat 10 guests inside for dining.
There is a dishwasher too.
On the ground floor is a lovely bunk bed room which also has a third bed, a
fantastic and fun environment for children to be on their own and next to it
a sweet lounge which also has a double sofa bed, again great for keeping
the children happy with a little TV time.
Down a few steps is the Farmhouse Bathroom, very spacious with Bath and
Separate Shower Enclosure, toilet, sink and bidet.
Up a few more steps is another double bedroom, which used to be the old hay
There is also a wonderful added bonus of a small lounge area just off the
metal spiral stairs that lead to the bedroom, which is great for relaxing
before bed, but also doubles as an ideal extra childís bedroom as it has a
sofa bed that can sleep 2. The Master Bedroom has a Double Bedroom with
Spacious storage area. The en-suite bathroom has a shower enclosure. There
is a large Outside Terrace area off the Bedroom which is great for getting
away from it all, ideal for enjoying a quiet spot of breakfast!
So this flexibility can be handy for families that want the smaller children
to be close by.
There is a facility for all of the guests to be able to sit inside and dine,
but the set up is designed for independent living and alfresco dining and
why would you not in an area of Spain that is known for itís 300 days of
blue sky days and stunning evenings plus the added ingredient of
tranquillity which this hamlet has.
The larger cottage next door has a lounge/dining area and kitchen and shower
room and upstairs are 3 bedrooms, of which one is a double, another a single
and the third a twin room.
The smaller cottage is great for elderly guests as it is fully self
contained and has an open plan lounge with a double bed and also a
kitchenette and shower room all on one floor.
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 being drawn together whilst having fun in the
lovely pool or finding shade in the gardens and grounds or of course
sunbathing on the pool terrace and the terrace that leads off from there.
For eating outside the BBQ is just outside the farmhouse door, there are 2
large tables to seat a max of 20 guests and the lovely 8 x 4 m pool is down
some steps and behind a locked gate, which really helps families to relax.
Just down from Lemon Grove is the river, dry in spring and summer which is a
fantastic natural play area for children and a great and different walking
environment for adults, you can walk all the way down to the Mediterranean
if the desire takes you and time allows.
The whole set up is like stepping back in time with bread oven on show and
mule tie rings still positioned in the exterior walls.
Smoking is permitted outside only please.
The whole interior has been lovingly restored and character kept but modern
Above Lemon Grove is one more cottage know locally as the chapel due to its
styling, this is where Ian and Avra live with their dog, it is handy having
the owners on site for advice and the odd bit of help that may be needed,
but at the same Ian and Avra are not obtrusive, and are as discreet or as
helpful as you require.
ABOUT THE AREA
Lemon Grove Farmhouse and Cottages are perfectly located to experience the
rural element of Andalucia, in a lovely hamlet that has hardly changed since
it was built 200 years ago.The whole area is steeped in Moorish history and
the location allows you to switch between a relaxing environment and also
within 30 minutes experience beach life, towns and tour the many beautiful
white villages that surround this hamlet.
If city culture is on your agenda then the very much unexplored city of
Malaga is only one hour away and the better know city of Granada with itís
stunning Alhambra Palace is reachable in 2 hours
The walks in the local area are rewarding, especially spring and summer
walking along the dry river beds which are just below the Lemon Groves but
bird watching, fiestas and horse riding can all be part of the holiday
The caves of Nerja and the pretty seaside village itself are only 45 minutes
away, but this area of Andalucia still has coast line which is peaceful and
spacious so if the desire is to also get away from the crowds then you will
have picked the right place.
Marbella with its glitz and port is only just over 1 hour away, worth seeing
how the other half live and then coming back to the tranquillity of the
Also Gibraltar, Ronda and Seville are all reachable with 2 Ė 3 hours.
The local bars are not tourist prices so you can still get a menu of the day
for 5-7 Ä including 3 courses and a drink and bottles of San Miguel are only
around the 1.20Ä mark not bad for a trendy drink in the UK, wine is still
great value and fresh fruit and vegetables though not as uniformed in shape
as the ones for sale in the British supermarkets usually tastes better and
is far cheaper.
The farmhouse has good access from the main road, via a tarmac track 5 minutes
