Ground floor kitchen, dining room
The Castellano-style kitchen, made of beautiful pine wood, was designed and installed by a local carpenter from Vélez-Málaga. The counter-top is made out of solid wood; 5 cm thick, 2 m long and 50 cm wide.
The door in the kitchen between the stove and refrigerator is the only interior door that is lockable, and should remain locked as it leads to the utilities closet (electricity, water, heating). In case of an emergency, it can be accessed with the key located next to the door in a fire-brigade safe box (simply break the glass and remove the key). Additional towels, bed and table covers, cleaning rags and supplies, dustpan and broom are also stored in this room.
An additional pantry (containing extension cables, drying racks, large garbage bags, ironing board and iron) is located behind the kitchen. The entrance to the pantry can be found outside the house via the black iron door.
Bowls, Tupperware, diverse cooking appliances such as a waffle iron, sandwich toaster, blender and egg cooker can all be found in the cabinets underneath the counter.
Other appliances such as an orange juicer, espresso and coffee machine can all be found on the counter next to the dishwasher. Knives, forks, tea- and tablespoons, dessert forks, larger kitchen knives, salad utensils, serving spoons, can and bottle openers, barbecue tongs and forks are all stored in the upper drawers of the counter. Kitchen and hand towels, tablecloths and napkins can be found in the lower drawers.

A kettle, microwave, gas lighter and kitchen towel holder are all located on the counter-top. For coffee and tea time - pots, sieves and a 24-piece coffee / tea set with included dessert plates can be found in the upper kitchen cabinets next to the glasses.

Spices, pepper, salt, flour and sugar can be found in the overhead cabinets above the stove as well on a shelf next to the cabinets. The thermoses for tea and coffee have been labeled and are next to the electric oven. Various trays and baking pans have been stowed inside the oven.
A refrigerator with integrated freezer (lower section) is located at the other end of the kitchen. You may store your groceries in the upper cabinets to the left of the fridge. The cabinets to the right hold various plates, dessert bowls, and glasses.On the counter you will find the breadbox, toaster and fryer. The Miele washing machine is equipped with a honeycomb drum that utilizes longer washing cycles in order to save energy. Detergent is stored in the lower cabinet left of the washing machine.
Inside the dining room, there is a 50 cm wide bar with 4 bar stools facing the kitchen. The large dining table is located directly across the room, with a south-facing outlook. The table is extendable and can seat up to 10 people. Coasters, candles and ashtrays can all be found on the shelf underneath the flat-screen TV.
