The location is very unusual, close to the ancient Arab castle at the top of the hill. The narrow and winding streets can be tricky to navigate the first time by car, but you soon get used to them. The house has its own reserved parking spot in the church car park not far away.
Being at the top of the hill, this wouldn't be good for someone with poor mobility - but for everyone else it's an amazing place.
The house is on three levels. The bedroom and shower/toilet room is on the ground floor. The open plan kitchen/lounge is on the first floor, with a small patio area just outside through double doors. Stairs from the patio lead to the roof terrace which has incredible views across the bay and out to sea. We could even see the snow on the Sierra Nevada's peaks (in early March).
My wife and I enjoyed the real taste of Spain that this home gave us. Salobrena has some nice restaurants and bars, but isn't catering for the British tourist - a plus point in our book. We weren't looking for a Full English breakfast, Guinness, or premier league games on the TV.
We had a fabulous time in Casa faldas del Castillo. Reserved parking space close to the apartment was essential as the apartment is at the top of the hilltop town. We have stayed in Salobreña many times, this was one of the best apartments we have stayed in because of the stunning views from the terrace.
All the basic commodities available,small 2 ring electric hob with oven, fridge -freezer, microwave, washing machine. Sofa bed in living room could have been more comfortable.
The terrace at the top of the house was a spacious area, sunshine all day, with panoramic views of the Alpujarras, the flat, once used for sugar cane growing, the beach way below. Highly recommended for a tranquil break away from the more touristy area of the Costa. Traditional Spanish, laid back way of life. Lots of wonderful restaurants close to the property, if you want to eat out. We prefer to our own Spanish cooking. Perfect, perfect, perfect. I have already booked another stay in September. Thank you Anunciata, mucho Grasias. Jean
