Jardin de los Limónes

Valle de Lecrin, Granada, Spain


Andalusian Oasis 

Perched atop a dramatic valley in southern Spain, this beautiful self catering villa for eight with private pool is for those looking to escape the stresses of everyday life. Staying here means enjoying sweeping mountain views, luxurious amenities, cultural activities and sipping cava by the glorious pool.

The Location

On a citrus fruit planation in the Valle de Lecrin, this retreat is cradled between endlessly fascinating Granada (30-minute drive) and the Sierra Nevada National Park (just up the road) – home to some of the best hiking opportunities in Europe. For beach lovers the nearest are only a 30-minutes drive away.

If arriving by air choose from Malaga Airport (1 hour 15-minute drive) or Granada (about 40 minutes). ALSA buses depart from Granada regularly, and take approximately 1 hour 10 minutes.

Danish couple Henrik and Ingo spent years travelling the world as professional classical musicians before discovering what is now Garden of Lemons.

Both lovers of Andalusian culture, Henrik and Ingo hope to share its uniqueness with guests during their stay.
