The story of Duende

Our Villa is called Duende, but what does it mean? Duende is one of those impossible to translate words, that relates to the "state of bliss or spell" that a (flamenco) artist comes in during a perfor-mance. It has something magical, just like our villa.

If you want to withness the Duende for yourself, go to a flamenco show in Granada, were the culteral heart of the Gypsys is to be found in the Sacromonte area.

Welcome to our Villa "Duende"

The villa is located on one of the most exclusive urbanisations on the Costa Tropical of Granada, Monte de los Almendros.

It is tucked away at the end of a quiet side street with no through traffic. Once you enter through the large wooden doors of the villa, you know you are in a special place. There is no sense of having neighbours as below are some farm houses that can´t even be seen and the property is so long and well designed that you don’t even see or hear the neighbours to the sides.

The Costa Tropical is the coastline of the Granada province, situated to the East side of Málaga. It is more Spanish and less crowed thant the more famous Costa del Sol.

More than 320 days of sun a year and an average temperature of 20c makes Granada’s Tropical Coast an ideal spot. Light winds from North Africa, warm waters of the Mediterranean and the shelter provided by the nearby Sierra Nevada give it Europe’s only subtropical climate.

Apart from sea and culture, the Tropical Coast offers a great number of possibilities such as golf, paragliding, trekking in the
villages which are located inland, scuba-diving in the rich depths
of Cerro Gordo and the nautical sports that have their centre at
the marina of Marina del Este (Almuñecar) and the Club Náutico
of Motril.

Salobreña is about an hour drive from the airport at Málaga, and is a 45 min drive away from Granada.

The skiresorts of the Sierra Nevada are reacheble in 70 minutes, so you can ski in the morning and go to the beach in the afternoon...

Inland you'll find the beautifull foothills of the Sierras, called the Alpujarras and the rolling lands of the Lecrin valley.

That is, if you can break away from the stunning setting of our Villa !
