One of the most amazing things about Salobreña in my opinion, is that, when you walk down the street, a lot of the houses look ordinary and for the most part very similar. However, if you can get a look at what is behind some of these walls, you will be amazed.

The first 2 photos are taken from the roof terrace of one of the houses I look after, I am peeking into the garden of the house next door.  These people have cleverly bought the empty lot next door and made it their garden. Or it could have been the old animal corral from when the previous owners kept animals next to the house.. This was a very common practice not long ago discontinued.  I know of at least three places in town where people still keep chickens.  It is a delightful sound at 6am to hear the cockerel crow off in the distance.  Anyway, as you can see in the first two photos, they have created an oasis in the old town..Where you see the blue tile, is where they have bought new tiles and broken them up and laid them to make up a beautiful floor in their garden next to the bbq and bar area.  I may go ask the owners if I can get in and take some photos of their garden up close.

The following photo is an internal terrace of one of the houses I actually look after.. this is a beautiful house that rents out up in the old town.. it is a gorgeous 2 bedroom property with 3 terraces, one being this internal corral terrace with dipping pool. To see more photos, you can click on the link in my blogroll for rent costa tropical. The name of the house is Casa Mediterranea and it is more beautiful in person than in the photos!
