About the neighbourhood
The picturesque village of Torvizcon nestles at the foot of Las Alpujarras. An unspoilt traditional Spanish farming village where you are as likely to meet a mule as a motor car! Situated one hour from Granada and 45 minutes from the coast, culture, countryside, beaches and skiing are all within easy reach. With a population of just under 1000, the village has 4 bars plus a hotel and pension, both of which serve meals. There are also 3 small supermarkets, bakery, butchers, fishmongers and a weekly vegetable stall enabling you to do all your shopping without leaving the village. The traveling market visits on the 1st and 16th of every month with a selection of clothing, plants, nuts & olives etc. For a wider range of shops and a bustling Thursday market, the town of Orgiva is just 20 k...
