Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Simple, comfortable and with a hint of old Andalusian-style – you can walk in the front door of Villa Cacin and settle straight into holiday mode! This villa, nestled within its own private grounds, with tranquil views towards the mountains and valley, sets the scene for unforgettable holidays right in the world UNESCO region of Granada.

In a residential area, Villa Cacin is approached along a whitewashed street to a private gated doorway, which emphasises the quietness of its location. Built on one level, the interior is modestly furnished and focuses on a welcoming sitting-dining room finished in typical local style, with sofas, dining table and fireplace – perfect for evenings snuggling up watching a movie, though you will want to stay outside for most of the time! The fully fitted kitchen close by provides all the essential amenities for a self-catering break. A double bedroom and twin bedroom make up the sleeping arrangements, and you’ve a bathroom complete with a shower for everyone to share.

The outdoor spaces work so well in this villa, with a larger than average pool and paved gardens all facing the vistas of the countryside beyond. The pool even has a pool volleyball net, so you can all get competitive with some pool activity before retiring to a sunbed for a change of pace to catch some sunrays or pick up your holiday read, all whilst taking in the tranquillity and view. And, if you’re still in adrenaline active mode and wish to work up even more of a sweat – a basketball court is on hand close by for a game, or you can try your hand at a game of pelota – a local Spanish game played with basket-like rackets fastened to your hand.

With all this talk of being active, you’ll want to relax and re-energise at some point! There’s a barbecue and outdoor dining area right by the poolside, too – just perfect for those alfresco summer dinners and a great spot for an evening drink watching the sun going down!

With staggering mountain ranges, Cacín River, and the incredible city of Granada all within reach, the village of Cacín enjoys stunning panoramic views and an air of calm and peacefulness. A quintessentially Spanish village typical of the area, Cacín actually belongs to a series of villages that make up the Poniente Granadino - all lie to the west side of Granada. Days can be spent wandering Cacín village itself, soaking up the fresh air and scenery, enjoying the traditional atmosphere and the friendly local hospitality in the shops and traditional Spanish restaurants or Tapas bars.

Outdoor enthusiasts are in for an unforgettable holiday of adventure and discovery. Peppered with pueblos blancos, incredible viewpoints and enough footpaths to last a lifetime, as well as being close to the UNESCO city of Granada, it’s perfect for those who enjoy outdoor life.

Pull your hiking boots on and put your best foot forward! Explore deep valleys, lush flourish forests, soaring summits, and get your adrenaline fixed with a bout of rock climbing should you fancy that. If all that sounds too intense, take a walk on the wild side in one of the family-friendly hiking spots. The magnificent scenery of the Sierra Tejeda mountain range, a striking reddish-brown rock surrounded by the greenery of vineyards, yews and pines, which in winter is capped by a white layer of snow, is incredibly picture-postcard.

No trip to Cacín is complete without visiting Granada. With its magnificent backdrop of Spain’s snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains, Granada will seriously delight, surprise and seduce you big time. From incredible sightseeing at its breath-taking hilltop Moorish Alhambra palace complete with ornate chambers, gardens and fountains, to its fine cathedral, cobbled backstreets, colourful tapas bars, excellent shopping and flamboyant flamenco-based nightlife, there are endless ways to fill your days, whether you’re out to relax, soak up some of Spain’s richest history or simply live it up. Top tip for visiting the Alhambra Palace, its cathedral, including the stunning summer palace Generalife - book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment, it’s super popular and can get busy.

Take time to wander the streets of the old Albaicin quarter, reflecting on the city’s Moorish traditions. You’ll discover exotic tearooms and restaurants serving tagine and couscous dishes. Everywhere else, tapas bars vie for your attention. Pick a spot at a sunny pavement table and enjoy tasty titbits like quails’ eggs, cured ham, manchego cheese accompanied by Spanish beer, sherry or wine. Many of the traditional restaurants offer Spanish favourites - gazpacho, flamenco eggs or La tortilla del Sacromonte (a type of omelette made with sweetbreads and ham). As the sun settles, experience a taste of real Spanish Flamenco at one of Albaicin’s atmospheric tablao’s, wowing at Andalusia’s traditional dance form, where dancers passionately sway and sashay to the sounds of castanets and strumming guitars.

In the Caldererias area, you’ll find a bazaar-like maze of streets crammed with Moorish-style stalls groaning with inlaid wooden boxes, iron lanterns and leather goods, whilst elsewhere there’s a huge variety of Andalusian shops selling castanets, glazed tiles and hand-painted ceramics. For modern-day shopping, make a beeline for the boutiques and department stores clustered around the cathedral and Puerta Real. It’s no surprise the city is bursting with mosques, Arab fortresses and Gothic churches to discover too. The city also has a lively market scene. The best known is the Mercado San Augustin. Visit here and browse the stalls selling fresh produce and tasty snacks, and best still, you’re just a short stroll from the cathedral.

Granada is foodie heaven and is loaded with eateries. A popular spot with locals is Mercadillo de Plaza Larga - a market held every Saturday. It’s perfect for picking up fresh fruit and vegetables that you can take back to your villa cook up delicious feasts. Nightlife in Granada starts late, so maybe start things gradually by snacking at the many outdoor tapas bars. Later, there’s an incredible choice of electrifying flamenco shows, jazz clubs and music bars to enjoy or if you’re feeling more adventurous, follow the crowds to the atmospheric Sacromonte district for the legendary zambra, where local gipsies dance in cavernous clubs to castanets and strumming guitars.

Villa Cacin is great for small families visiting the region. Always a family favourite, the pool and roomy terrace is the perfect place for the kids to play, especially as you’ve got the added extras of pool activity in the way of a pool volleyball net. There’s a little bit of artificial lawn for the little ones to play on too. Enjoy listening to their laughter as they splash in the water and play different pool games. The terrace overlooks the pool, so it is easy to keep an eye on them! You could even pick up some water guns to add a little excitement to the day! Added to this, you’ve got more in the way of family-friendly activity - a multi-functional sports court for playing a game of badminton, tennis, softball or basketball.

The portable barbecue is also great for families. Enjoy cooking up a feast before sitting outside together and enjoying quality time with each other. There are also great practical elements to make travelling as a family easier; a dishwasher and washing machine are handy appliances.

Your new surroundings are waiting to be explored, and there’s plenty to do if you venture further afield! The local area is fantastic for families to explore. Cacín is a small village and a great example of Spanish hospitality to families. Most restaurants in the region will cater to younger children with high chairs and children’s menus.

For days spent outdoors in the fresh air, natural areas of beauty include the Natural Park Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama, all rich in wildlife, Moorish villages and popular for hiking trails, including Tajos del Rio Cacín.

Reviews

  • Very uncomfortable

    on 14/09/2020

    The house is very cosy and has a very large swimming pool, very quiet, also if you go with children it has a basket, ping pong table, to play badminton, balls, in general the house is very good, the only thing is that the hammocks are very uncomfortable.

  • Very pleasant rental

    on 03/07/2019

    Very pleasant rental. Sufficiently large and with all the necessities. The pool was more than pleasant during our stay. The owner lives next door and is very helpful. Just a small downside: a bit noisy at night.
