As a Spaniard spending most of my time in London, Salobreña has all I am after whenever I go back to my country: authenticity, great weather, & beautiful sorroundings. So in 2005 I decided to look for a town house in the town. I found one that had a lot of potential, and I refurbished it. Since then I enjoy decorating it to make a comfortable, spacious and stylish home in which to spend a holiday.
It is not a beach apartment nor a villa with a swimming pool, but rather a charming town house in which to feel part of town life. It was built in the 60’s in a much sought after part of the Old Town of Salobreña, amongst Spanish neighbours. The house is unusually spacious for its location, luminous and with good proportions, aproximately 70sqm.
The house is built in the slope of Salobreña´s famous rock, and is arranged over two floors and two sets of stairs, conveniently separating the living and sleeping areas.
On the ground floor, steps lead into an open plan kitchen, living room and terrace. The terrace has a southeast orientation, receiving the morning sun, ensuring protection from local winds, and a mild & pleasent temperature inside the property all year round! White floors, original stone walls, a generous leather corner sofa, aircon/heating, ambience lighting, books, boardgames, WiFi, a large satellite TV, DVD… everything contributes to being a space for sharing and relaxing, and an unusuallly large one for a town house in Salobreña!
Downstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms overlooking a quiet pedestrian street, a metro tiled bathroom with a large shower and a guest toilet. The decor combines original features and local materials with a vintage touch. For more photos visit flickr jorgepostigo.
The property is located in a particularly quiet cul de sac with no traffic noise, there is car access to the front door, and parking spaces can be found in the same street. The property also benefits from being a moments walk from a small food shop run by local people, a 10 minute walk (600 meters) to the sea front, and 5 minutes walk to the town centre, where large supermarkets, banks and shops are found.
Rita, the housekeeper, is a trusted and resourceful local lady who is responsible for welcoming you, handing out keys, cleaning and resolving any issues you might have. She only speaks Spanish, but manages to make herself understood to all guests! Although I live in London, I am of course also available on email and mobile 24/7.
