Description of the house
This house is uniquely located below an ancient Moorish watchtower (atalaya) in Nijar. The Sierra de Alhamilla mountain range is right behind the house; an ideal environment for endless walks. The roof terrace of the house is large with spectacular views over the village and its surroundings. At the side of the house is another small walled and shady garden where you can take shelter of the sun on hot days. The interior and the decoration of the house is tasteful and light: a pleasant blend of antique and Moorish features, beautiful pictures and colours. Partly due to a good wood burner, the house is comfortable even on less warm and cloudy days.
Surroundings of the Casa Atalaya

The last few hundred meters to the house are on quite a narrow road winding its way through the village. It’s possible to take the car close to the house, but you’re advised to park the car in the village below.
