Fed up with tourists then you will love this village and area. Casa Karanna is situated in a delightful white-washed village snuggling in between olive groves, hills and a beautiful lake. The property has been completely renovated to provide clean, modern, comfortable accommodation for up to 8 people. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms stylish. Two lounge areas provide you with flexible living conditions, limited TV for films and some channels dvds , ad music/games room. The bedrooms again provide for a variety of sleeping arrangements, 1 twin and 2 double rooms (there is an additional double sofa bed in the second lounge.) The property is of traditional Spanish design and therefore cool in the summer. There is a sunny patio outside for alfresco eating and a spiral staircase to an upstairs terrace with stunning views over the lake and countryside. This is also accessed from the main bedroom upstairs. Local towns of Martos and Alcaudette just 15 - 20 km away for shops and restaurants and swimming pools together with Alcala La Real with castle and pool and lovely shops and restaurants. It is ideally located to explore the Subbetica National Park, Granada and the Alhambra Palace, Cordoba and its Mezquita, and Jaen with its wonderful castle and arabic baths and cobbled streets. Don't forget the delightful Unesco towns of Ubeda and Baeza. Just past Granada is Guadix with its cave homes, you will never see a place like this again! So many other wonderful places to explore. Excellent shopping at all and historical sights abound. For walkers, cyclists and nature lovers there are many trails nearby and the Via Verde, a long distance trail for bikes and walkers goes right past the village. Many cycle races come close by so a good place to stop for this. A delightful 15km walk around the lake to see the bird life and flowers. Fishermen can enjoy the international fishing in the lake and you can also swim in the lake although there is not a beach. There is a running round the lake once a year in March attracting over 2000 entries. Skiing is close by in the Sierra Nevada and the coast just a 95 minute drive away to Nerja. But it is so peaceful in the village that you could just relax and enjoy the quiet and the countryside. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTAR/JA/00823More

Additional amenities & feature info
Every thing in the house is new. The kitchen is well equipped and there are washing and drying facilities. There is a t.v. for playing dvds but sadly sky is no longer available in this property when we turned to Digital chanels. I am looking to put in a Spanish TV areal for local TV. Linen and 1 towel per person provided for indoor use. (it is possible to hire beach towels if required) There are portable fans and heaters along with air conditioning in most main rooms to provide comfort throughout the seasons and a wood burning stove in the lounge. There is a table and chairs plus recliners on the downstairs patio for alfresco eating and relaxing and upstairs is a small table with stunning views for you to enjoy a meal and a glass of wine. You can hire a large paddling pool (8x3ft) and a 2 man dingy for use on the lake if required. A welcome pack of bread, butter, milk, water, tea and coffee is waiting for you when you arrive. Flexible arrival and departures are allowed wherever possible.

About the neighbourhood
There are several fiestas in Martos, Las Casillas and Alcaudette. Martos has a Market on Saturday mornings and there is a market in Torredonjimeno on the way to Jaen on a Sunday morning. A large market in Moclin on the way to Granada is on the last Sunday of the month. Martos and Alcaudette have many bars, restaurants and shops and gardens to wander around. Martos has a theatre. Jaen has a large shopping Mall which is open all day (when the Spanish have their Siesta is a good time to visit!). Most local towns have forts, churches and historical sights to visit. It is an excellent area for walking, fishing, cycling, birdwatching and relaxing. It is real undiscovered Spain and not at all touristy. You will need your Spanish phrase book but the locals will love to try to talk to you and help you understand them.
How to get there
Cheap flights to Granada or Ryan Air, Easy Jet and BMI Baby to Malaga. Las Casillas is a 1 hour drive from Granada and 2 hours from Malaga. There is a bus from Malaga to Martos.
