A truly stunning, traditional & unique Cortijo (old country mansion) on the beautiful & unspoilt Costa Tropical of southern Spain. The property has breathtaking unspoilt views overlooking the Mediterranean and surrounding Mountains. Set in large tropical gardens, Nomad's Retreat is surrounded by an exotic mix of lush fruit groves offering fruits such as mango, lemon, orange and avocado to name but a few. Nomad's Retreat has been sympathetically remodelled using traditional methods and local materials. The house boasts a gorgeous heated infinity edge salt water pool, covered terraces and a traditional stunning vaulted Palapa sun room. Nomad's Retreat is a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing location suitable for families who wish to experience all that this truly beautiful region of Spain has to offer. Steep access to the house ensures you have amazing panoramic sea views, which include sunrise and sunset, which can only be achieved from its elevated position.
'Once inside the property all living accommodation is on one level.'
'The pool, hot tub and leisure area are accessed by some steps, but there is ramped access to this area for those with less mobility. But as this all can be heated (at some extra charge over winter) it is an all year pleasure zone'
We have internet too ... so even if you have a little work to do on holiday you can .. relaxing by the pool!!
DON'T FORGET FOR THE WINTER ...THE SLOPES OF THE SIERRA NEVADA & ITS WONDERFUL SKI SLOPES. ONLY AN HOUR AWAY

Sitting by the pool, enjoying the sun and the incredible 5-mile view in both directions, I could not believe it was all real and mine to enjoy. What a glorous place in the sun for a vacation. The house itself is lovely. We enjoyed cooking in the generous and well equipped kitchen and grilling outside. Even though I am a die hard tourist, I found the allure of Nomad's Retreat irresistible and spent much of the week revelling in its unique joys.
Kate and Stephen are generous, caring hosts. They answered our questions and are a joy to have around. We parted as friends and I really hope to spend time with them in the future. Hey Kate, join me in Miami some time at my place at the Shelborne!!
And to top it all off there is the 46' yacht, The Optimist. What a fabulous boat and what a great afternoon we had on it. She was masterfully handled by Stephen, a Captain I would willingly set out to sea with. Kate provided a lovely repast and there were drinks aplenty.
At the week's end I really did not want to leave and return to reality. What a sweet, sweet retreat.
From the moment we arrived, we thought we had died and were in "heaven", the villa Nomads Retreat, the gardens, the fabulous pool was ALL incredible, The villa is much more spacious than the photos show plus the pool too is generous in size. Kate made us feel very special always making sure everything was as good as it could possibly be. She even pulled a few strings as we especially wanted a week that had been booked by another client, due to my 60th birthday and my son's 30th birthday. - absolute STAR of a lady. We had more fun than I ever thought possible. A VERY BIG THANK YOU to Kate for making our dream come true.

We enjoyed everything about the villa and the view from the pool is just stunning. The girls enjoyed their early morning yoga and pilates sessions by the pool.
Kate was the perfect hostess and could not do enough to make our stay perfect, with advise on places to vist, local shops and all the other things only a local would know about.
Highlights of the trip were Granada, local tapas down on the local beach, picking fresh lemons of the trees for a G&T, water fights with the kids around the pool and the local water falls and lagoons, really is a must for the young at heart. Who's brave enough to do the 35 foot jump into the lagoon? And not to forget a BBQ and a few drinks on the veranda over looking pool and the Med.:)
I loved my stay here and Kate, I look forward to another visit some time soon.
all the best
Just wanted to say a big thank you for last week. Nomad’s is just the perfect place. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and left on Saturday refreshed and invigorated. And are still feeling buzzy despite EasyJet!
You have a wonderful place there, you’ve made it a real home and made us feel really welcome. Thank you. The girls just adored their cave room so thank you for making it special for them. For me I loved the quiet mornings, to make a coffee and chat to Jo on the little veranda outside of the kitchen. We watched the doves doing their mad circling and all landing one by one on the telegraph wires in the next field, wobbling a bit, but not falling off. We also did spy the eagle, but luckily not at the same time as the doves. The gardens and flowers around the villa are just glorious. You’ve put in an enormous amount of work into the place and it is really paying off. But you were right. A week wasn’t sufficiently long enough.
Wish you and your family well Kate. Hope to visit again.
My husband, myself, and my three boys (11, 8, and 6) returned yesterday after spending an amazing week at Nomad's Retreat! Words cannot describe how amazing this place is. We all had such a good time just being together and in the backyard. The weather was fantastic. We would swim and then relax in the hot tub. The view overlooking the Mediterranean was spectacular from both the hot tub and swimming pool. We could not get enough of being outside. The fruit orchards were a big hit with the boys. They loved eating the fresh Asian plums.
The house was perfect and had plenty of room for the 5 of us and room for more friends or family. Everything was in working order. Kate was friendly and very helpful. She was available for any questions we had. We really enjoyed meeting her and are thankful that she shares her little piece of paradise with us. We have already requested our next stay in 2015.
