Tranquil La Herradura on the Costa Tropical, Granada – just 45-60 minutes from the city. Be on the beach in 10 minutes, or the Sierra Nevada’s slopes in just 90 minutes
Step into a home where inside and out are in perfect synchronicity – a villa designed around the Costa Tropical’s most striking Mediterranean views.
If a single snapshot could tell an entire story, then Villa Kari’s would be this.
A floating designer staircase, its wingspan spread across an open-plan living-dining-kitchen. A celebration of clean lines and monochromatic minimalism in driftwood greys and sandy neutrals.
And, as the centrepiece: the polar opposite to this neutral minimalism. A sparkling sapphire vista of 280-degree Mediterranean views, framed by floor-to-ceiling glass. The breath-taking view starts over the villa’s azure pool, sweeping down the Spanish roof tiles, before climbing over pine-dappled cliffs and ancient villages.
This is the heart of Villa Kari. This is why you’re here. And all around, interior spaces form – living and dining, sleeping and relaxing. Each one framing, celebrating, and revering what may well be the Costa Tropical’s most spectacular view. Here, the outdoors is inside. So you can spend your holiday as and how you wish.
The sun-drenched Villa Kari celebrates sweeping Mediterranean views and a matchless location in La Herradura – minutes to beaches and just an hour from the ski slopes.
Set in an elevated position – high on a hilltop in La Herradura – just 10 minutes to the sand and an hour to the Sierra Nevada slopes. This contemporary villa enjoys a privileged view over the sparkling Mediterranean: a view that takes centre stage from every corner of Villa Kari’s tranquil outdoors.
Begin in the shaded pergola, with the Spanish sun streaming in. Unwind on one of the designer loungers taking advantage of this sun-dappled spot. Inviting you to relax for warm mornings, afternoons – full days – of poolside lounging and admiring the view.
And, about the view. It’s unobstructed. Thanks to glass walls and smart landscaping, which simply complement the panorama.
Sit. Lounge. Sunbathe. And luxuriate in what may be the best view in Spain.

- Villa Kari is wheelchair accessible. There’s a lift to access the house. And the main floor is open-plan with one en-suite bedroom with roll-in shower and wide doors.
- Villa Kari is located in an elevated setting – an easy walk downhill to the beach (a short cut is available), but some energy may be needed to get back up in the summer.
- Large groups can rent Villa Kari together with its bigger sister, Villa Kallan to accommodate a total of 20 guests + staff. There is a gate at the back of the properties that can interconnect the two.

Enjoy the local area
Villa Kari is ideally positioned in a very private spot overlooking the bay of La Herradura. It’s approximately 15 minutes walk to the first of several restaurants on the beach ‘Playa de la Herradura’, and about the same distance to the small town centre for a spot of shopping. There is also a shortcut that the manager can show you when you arrive, which gets you there in about 10 minutes.
Sandwiched between the Costa del Sol and Costa del Almeria, Costa Tropical is Granada province’s coast. Different in feel to its neighbours, it has a rugged coastline, with scenic coves, jutting rocks and sandy pebble beaches.
Named after its climate, the Costa Tropical is famed for its tropical fruit. With mango and avocado groves carpeting hillsides and villages. This stretch of coastline has a relaxed vibe, in keeping with Granada’s soulful, romantic feel. And the towns are mostly low-rise, sitting aside pristine waters.
This is hidden Spain – from lesser-known white villages perched on a rock, to unspoilt beaches, to incredible diving, nearby historical cities and skiing. There are plenty things for you to see and do in and around La Herradura. This area is ideal for outdoor pursuits. The diving from La Herradura is excellent. But if scuba diving isn’t your thing, the snorkelling is just as good. A Mecca for cyclists, the region is great for road and mountain biking with routes (and e-bikes!) to suit all abilities.
A trip isn’t complete without a visit to the Alhambra in the city of Granada. When you’re done, head to the Moorish Albayzín district and watch the breathtaking sunset over the honey-coloured fort.
Malaga city itself is also worth exploring for its vibrant foodie scene and historical sights like the Gibralfaro and Alcazaba. It’s just 50 minutes drive away from the villa.
