Description:On Christmas Day 1884 Albuñuelas was devastated by an earthquake which destroyed two thirds of the village. To assist those who had lost everything, the Duque de Fernán Núñez constructed 24 houses on a bluff above the old village, commanding stunning views down the valley. Officially, this is the barrio Fernán Núñez, but is known locally as La Loma.Casa Careto is one of three luxury houses, newly constructed on the edge of the barrio overlooking the orange and olive groves of the Rio Santo Gorge. From the terraces you can enjoy the view of Lake Beznar and the Sierra Nevada and, if you are lucky, watch eagles soaring. There are many walks from the village and escorted walks or horse riding can be arranged. The house sleeps 6 comfortably with 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, a wonderful large terrace looking across the Rio Santo Gorge and the Sierra de Albuñuelas, and a further, upper terrace with far-reaching views along the valley.One feature is the huge basement. Typical of Spanish owned houses in this area, this accommodates not only your car but is provided with a large open fireplace and a second small kitchen, an ideal party area.The pool is larger than usual since it is intended to be shared with the other two houses. However, while the construction of these is finished, they will not, for the time being, be furnished or occupied. There is a poolside shower and WC and a terraced area for sunbathing.You can also expect a warm welcome at the Bar Careto in the village, the owners of house and bar are the same.Weekly Rentals sleeps up to 6
