Casa Barbara is an original alpujarra house with beams, stone floors and wood stove set in a tiny village at 1000 metres off the beaten track. There is one large bedroom with two zones, a double bed and two singles,a large living room /diner with books and a kitchen and bathroom with plentiful hot water. A south facing balcony and roof terrace with views all around make it ideal for relaxing and winter sun. This is walking country with old mule paths that connect the 7 villages of La Taha, an area settled by the moors whose architecture and terraces of almonds and olives with traditional watering system are still maintained.The local villages have small bars and restaurants famous for local ham and wine although they will also cater for vegetarians. There is a local festival in August...Casa Barbara is an original alpujarra house with beams, stone floors and wood stove set in a tiny village at 1000 metres off the beaten track.

There is a local festival in August and a piano bar 15 minutes walk away which showcases local and visiting performers. The local artistic community has a exhibition centre in Pitres 4km away . There is an open air swimming pool at the campsite in Pitres and also one at the hotel in Mecina. Free wifi is availablein the house and in many bars. But mostly this is a place to experience the mountains,listen to the birdsong,watch the shepherds with their flocks or potter in the countryside and relax away from the world.).

Ferreirola is a small village surrounded by mountains - the village is very quiet and the only thing we heard were the cats and bells from the sheeps. The apartment is good - the kitchen contains everything needed - there is a lot of inspirations...More

Also a haven for book lovers and escapists, sitting on the balcony or roof terrace is a wonderful way to relax. For walkers, there are signposted walks that start right outside the door.

About the neighbourhood
Sierra Nevada national park has snow capped peaks, a ski centre, Trevelez, the highest village in spain, wild flowers not found elsewhere in Europe and wonderful walking country. There are guides available for the more adventurous or well marked paths at the lower levels. We are in a whitewashed hamlet with 30 full time inhabitants at 1000 metres above sea level in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. We have over 340 days of sun a year with cool winter nights.You can walk to all the surrounding villages on ancient mule trails. There are restaurants and bars within 15 minutes walk from the house. Local trails start right outside the door. Ferreirola is home to the festival, Music in the Mountains, which brings musicians from all over the world. The alpujarra villages also have traditiona...
Getting around
You will really benefit from a car if you want to thoroughly explore the area, but if you prefer a 'green' approach you can get here by bus and just enjoy the local walks.
