Beautiful, comfortable house near Granada with pool and garden, gorgeous setting, sleeps 6, in foothills of Sierra Nevada mountains in village of Quentar. Fabulous views of valley and mountains. Amenities are close by - two supermarkets, a chemist, pharmacy, bank and three bars, one with terrace. Lovely area for hiking. Very peaceful and perfect for relaxation.
Lovely chalet (126 square metres), with garden and pool and spectacular views. It is in the most beautiful setting with the most amazing views of the valley below and the surrounding mountains.

Chill out in the garden, we have various tropical plants, flowering shrubs and fruit trees - nectarine, fig, apple, grape, pomegranate, as well as flowers and herbs including geraniums, margaritas, chrysanthemum, lavender, rosemary, thyme and mint. In springtime, we have lovely daffodils, tulips and iris. I am a keen gardener so everything is well cared for. There is an outside bathroom (toilet and sink).
Easy access to paths through the mountains and down by the river.
The swimming pool (private) is in operation from June to end of September. . Private parking for several cars.

I am a teacher and have spent many years working and travelling in different countries - United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Poland, Greece, Australia, New Zealand (to name but a few). I first came across Granada 30 years ago and fell in love with the place, like so many do, and bought the house in La Fuente, Quentar. Although I love to see other countries I always loved to come back to the village to relax and enjoy the peaceful nature of the place and the stunning scenery. I also love meeting people from different places and sharing stories. Needless to say, I am happy to provide any information to visitors. ( English and Spanish spoken) .
I have a B.Ed degree, an MA in TEFL and studied law at the University of Westminster, London.
My interests are Spanish culture, Spanish Civil War, World War 1 and 2, handicrafts, film, criminal justice.
