About this property

Cottage with Private Pool and Mountain Views. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Casa Caballo is a detached one bedroom cottage located on an a 2 acre Andalucian finca set on top of a hill with ancient terracing of almond trees and truly panoramic views of the surrounding village and mountains. The authentic Spanish village of Lubrin is just a short 5 minute walk to the main plaza with tapas bars.

The cottage has been renovated from old stables and is designed for 2 people with comfortable self catering accommodation. There is a living room, with well equipped kitchen, spacious double bedroom and full size bathroom. Outside has a private pool along with open and covered terraces with bbq, garden furniture and stunning mountain views which on a clear day, includes the Mediterranean which is about 12 miles away as the crow flies.

The landscaping in restful and relaxing and is the ideal holiday for solace and tranquility and an unforgettable experience of Spanish mountain hospitality, from the delightful and charming villagers of Lubrin.

Lubrin Pueblo nestles high in the Sierra Los Filabres some 2000 feet above the well known beach resorts of Mojacar and Garrucha which are just 45 minutes away. Lubrin is a small village of about 500 of the nicest people you are ever likely to meet. There are a number of cafe/bars that offer tapas. Meson Molinos is a restaurant offering fine wines and a mouthwatering menu. Bar Lopez is located in Rambla Aljibe, which is one of the dozen or so hamlets in the Parish of Lubrin, where you can get a good wholesome 3 course Menu del Dias including wine for about 12 euros.

There are 3 banks and the village shops include 2 supermarkets, 3 butchers, 3 bakers (no Candlestick Makers!!) and an ironmongers. You can buy anything from a pin to a Porsche (well not quite a Porsche). Market day is on a Wednesday when you can stock up with fresh fruit and vegetables on most days the fresh fish van comes up from the coast.

Life in Lubrin is a time warp and will remind us more senior citizens of an early childhood where family groups sit out on the streets on hot summer nights with children playing until the sun sets over the hill.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr John Vincent

In 1998 my wife and I visited Almeria to look for a more permanent home for retirement but away from the mass tourism. We stumbled on Lubrin and within the first hour, as we sat in Bar Molino with our wine and tapas variadas, we knew that we had found our Spanish pueblo. We bought an old cortijo on a 1 hectare finca within a 5 minute walk of the centre of Lubrin. For the next 6 years we rehabilitated the building and converted the terraces into a series of terraced gardens.

Year property purchased 1998
