Fantastic old stone and beamed house in a tiny village in the Alpujarra mountains in Andalucia Southern Spain. Ideal for walkers and nature lovers. The house has a living room with wood-burning stove, kitchen, bathroom and one large bedroom with a double and two single beds. There´s a balcony and a huge roof terrace with incredible mountain views. We are just over an hour from Granada and the splendid Alhambra and a little more than two hours from Malaga international airport. The whitewashed villages of the Alpujarras were the last home of the arab kings in Spain and are redolent with charm and history. The pace of life is slow and relaxed and the countryside truly lovely at all times of the year.

About the neighbourhood
70 km south of Granada in the Alpujarra mountains, the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, within a natural park We are 20 km from Orgiva off the road to Trevelez. It is two to two and a half hours from from Malaga Airport. The last hour is on mountain roads. This is a very quiet whitewashed hamlet but within easy reach of most services. A larger village 4 km away has a supermarket and other shops and there are several bar/ restaurants within walking distance of the house .Parking is in the square 3 minutes away.
How to get there
Airport: Malaga: 137.0 km
Railway: Granada: 70.0 km
Ferry: Motril: 80.0 km
Two anda half drive from Malaga by first by motorway and then thrilling mountain roads for the last 45 minutes or so. Best in daylight if you can, especially as the views are stunning.There are also some direct flights from London to Granada Airport which is only 90 minutes away.
It is possible to come by bus via Granada but it is a bit tedious and the last bus is at 16.30 ;you will really benefit from having a hire car when you are here.
