Casa Azul was 2 traditional village houses that we purchased in 2003 to enable us to retire from a hectic self employed working life and offer relaxed bed and breakfast holidays instead. We converted them into a small B&B in the lovely working village of Albunuelas in the Lecrin Valley so that we still had a reason for getting up in the morning and to continue meeting interesting people without the daily 10 hour grind of our past life, rush hour on the M1 and cold wet winters in England.
To ensure that we keep in touch with home we installed a T/V in the lounge which receives all English free to air programs such as BBC and ITV and all our favorite radio stations. BBC1,2, 3, 4, Five live and Mary Anns favourite Classic FM. To look after all creature comforts we have had the 2 houses professionally converted into 1 without loosing any of the original character.
Our dreams finally started to come to fruition when we upped sticks and moved complete with Sally, our people loving dog and Smokey our cat in Jan 2004
There are now 2 en-suite rooms that are reserved for our b&b guests. The Blue room has twin beds and the Orange family room has a double and single bed and both have showers, radiators, fans and tea and coffee making facilities. We also have a childs bed and a cot that can be used in either room
On the second floor we have a self contained twin bedded apartment for 2 people. This consists of 3 rooms, the bedroom with views over the Sierra Nevada mountains, the kitchen/living room with sink, cooker, microwave, fridge and comfy seating and a shower room with wc. This apartment has direct access to the roof terrace which is shared with your resident hosts Mary Ann and Ken Silverlock and any other guests.
On the roof terrace there are plenty of chairs, a table, sun umbrella, a splash pool, BBQ and many flowering plants. This is a wonderful place to breakfast under a cloudless sky with birds every where including eagles soaring overhead on many days throughout the year.
From here you can also gaze on the snow capped Sierra Nevada Mountains for over 6 months of the year and which are proud to host the most southerly ski resort in Europe which is open from mid November to mid April. Just imagine , sking in the morning and sun bathing on your own roof terrace in the afternoon followed by a 2 minute stroll to the nearest bar in the evening for a glass of wine and tapas.
Can you think of a better way to while away the hours
On the ground floor we have the guests lounge with T/V and music centre, plus a selection of books and board games. Off the lounge is the dining room and outside there is a shady, enclosed courtyard with many plants and seating which is the perfect place to relax in the heat of the afternoon.
Mary Ann is happy to serve dinner for any guests that require it either in the dining room or the courtyard and if you wish to go out in the evening then Mary Ann is more than happy to baby sit for you
