In the heart of nature in the valley of the Rio Torrente, the cortijo is right on the boundaries of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park but within five minutes´ walk from the amenities of the picturesque ´slow´ village of Niguelas. Aguas Calmas lies between two traditional acequias (water-courses) dating from the time of the Arabs. Superb walking tracks and roads lead into the mountains. A paradise for hiking, cycling or lazing around the pool while enjoying extraordinary views.
The apartment is on a cortijo just outside the village of Niguelas. The land is mostly planted with olives. A drip irrigation system takes water from a dam at the bottom of the land. The garden outside the apartment is planted with olives, loquats, almond, walnut, cherry, citrus, grape vines, cactus, lavender, aloe vera, jasmine, roses, geraniums and many other flowers. There is a well shaded table and sitting area overlooking the pool and garden exclusively for guests.
The apartment has a double bed and a single bed, a sofa, a TV (Spanish and British freeview channels, with HDMI port), air-conditioning, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee percolator and blender. Sheets, towels, pots, pans, plates and cutlery are provided for guests.
For stunning silence, clear skies and all conveniences - pool, wifi, tv (Spanish and UK freeview channels) - visit us.

Interactie met gasten
The cortijo is permanently inhabited by an Australian/Spanish couple. We like meeting people. We speak English, Spanish, French and Arabic. We can offer advice on walks and you may accompany us (and dogs). We can direct you to several nearby restaurants with very affordable menus del dia. We can also provide information on fiestas - a regular occurrence in Niguelas and nearby villages - as well as day trips to the coast, ski-slopes, Granada and elsewhere.
Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
Visitors should like friendly dogs and cats as we have two of each. Sorry, you can´t bring your own.
Parking is available immediately outside the apartment.
