On approach, Hacienda El Valle looks almost fairy-tale-like, somewhere a romantic Moorish fable would take place.
The glorious Andalucian surrounds of this hacienda style house is the Lecrin Valley: olive and orange tree filled fields, misty peaks and undulating valleys.

There is no need to look outward though as the soothing, sun dappled, fountain gurgling central courtyard of the hacienda is truly special. It’s all about thrills not frills in this luxury rural villa.

Welcome to Hacienda El Valle

Hacienda El Valle is set within 4.5 hectares of organic private land a short drive from the charming village of Saleres (with a restaurant) and enjoys complete seclusion from its elevated position overlooking the valley.
This relatively modern villa is reminiscent of Granada’s Moorish past. Caramel hued and semi fortress-like it has an inner peace like a house with much more age. A serene inner courtyard, four mini suites with terraces, two principal suites with large terraces, pool and cosy outdoor and indoor fireplaces makes for an idyllic place to press pause.
Their own olive oil is served at the complimentary breakfast while you admire the groves down in the valley, it’s all ridiculously Andaluz.

How Hacienda El Valle works for you

Interiors

Traditionally Spanish Décor with Exquisite Flourishes

Looking indoors all bedrooms are mini suites with the principal bedroom being the star of the whole house. The en-suite bathrooms are well lit, practical and perfectly formed.
The high notes of the interiors are the decorative wall murals – charming, wistful and reminiscent of Central America.
The exterior of the house harks to southern Spain’s Moorish past but the interior is heavily entrenched in traditional country Spanish style. Terracotta, stone, and wrought iron work are constant throughout. Mediterranean elements of blues, okra and browns are present with metal accents. Rich tapestries, hand painted murals, oversized art and rugs are added for an elegant touch.
The hacienda has a tower overlooking the front of the house, towards the pool. This enclosed room and two sun terraces make for a wonderful yoga/meditation space or can be set up for a romantic meal for two.

A Faux Moorish Triumph

The triumph of this villa largely lies outside in its location, central courtyard and picturesque bell tower. The setting truly is exceptional. The babbling fountains, the shady nooks, sun-soaked pool, whirlpool and your own off room terrace – there are plenty of places to rest and reflect. It would be easy to steal away for some alone time at Hacienda El Valle under a pine tree or in the second courtyard.
Gathering together is taken care of too, from the back terrace with outdoor fire, BBQ and dining table or in the central patio.
There are many hidden outdoor seating spots for a morning coffee or sundowning salute.
Getting active is easy with the private tennis court and pool with a small pool house chill out seating zone.

In spring wildflowers sway in the meadows around the Hacienda. In summer it’s all about the pool and enjoying the cool air trapped by the central patio, while in cooler months you can enjoy the three open fires – one outdoors the other two in the comfortable cosy living rooms. Hacienda El Valle asks you to reconnect so there’s no TV or speaker system onsite, this is to encourage disconnection but if a soundtrack to your holiday is a must there’s WiFi throughout the property.
The formal living room and dining room is located on the ground floor, and this leads to the covered terrace at the rear of the house. The kitchen is off this dining room and the principal suite is above this area on the first floor. There isn’t a door dividing the living space on the ground floor and the suite above.
For the winter the casual living room has a grand piano, dining table, desk and comfy seating round an open fire. There’s also a chess set and grammar phone in this area.

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. There are three main areas all on the ground floor: The casual living/dining room, a formal dining room and alfresco on the terrace. Each table seats eight people but they can be extended to 12.

The pool area is a stroll away from the house. Mixing full sun, shade, bathing and comfy, reclining seating it’s a space to spend the day, all the while looking over mountainous countryside views. The chillout pool house is ideal for a lunchtime refreshment and the whirlpool dipping pool is just the touch after traveling.

The view through the valley, down to the pretty village and onto the lake or snow-capped mountains is something truly to behold. This is the romance, the reason you stay here. Yes there’s a private pool, whirlpool, tennis court and six mini suites but none of this compares to the dazzling location.
