El Tinao is a recently built townhouse in the heart of the unspoiled village of Canar. The house is unique in the village, being the only property that retains a 'tinao' - a feature unique to Berber architecture which connects buildings on both sides of narrow village streets. Built in the traditional Alpujarran style, El Tinao is light and spacious, with high ceilings, chestnut beams and slate stone floors throughout. There are two terraces, one for outdoor dining and a BBQ, the other with sun loungers and a heated spa. Both, of course, have those wonderful soaring views over the village, high above Orgiva and across to the Sierra Lugar. On a clear day, you can see the Rif Mountains of Morocco. It's easy to lose track of time in Canar, but don't worry - you can also see the village c...El Tinao is a recently built townhouse in the heart of the unspoiled village of Canar.

It won't help you with the day of the week, but at least you'll know when to nip out to catch the bread van for croissants in the morning! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTAR/GR/01394More

Canar is a charming village high in the Alpujarras. The house is charming and well equipped with rooftop hot tub, good kitchen and comfortable living room. Nearby village shop ios great and the cafe / bar very friendly, and the walks from here are superb.

Spent 6 nights in this property with my husband and loved every minute of it. El Tinao is located in a quiet hillside village and is typically 'Spanish'. Although the drop off for luggage is a short walk away, this means that there is little,...More

the little house is a dream. Plenty of space for four adults, although on this visit it was just the two of us. It's a very light airy cool house perfect for a hot day, the terraces are perfect if one is in full sun...More

About the neighbourhood
Unspoiled, wildlife, lush, mountains, flora, sunsets, sunrises, friendly, historic, alternative, tapas, Berber, peaceful, Moorish... so many descriptions used and overused in a thousand narratives of La Alpujarra. For me, it's the light. Mountains appear so close in the morning, crisp and clearly defined, then seem to retreat in hazy pastel shades in the heat of the sun. The day ends with long shadows, javelins of light from the west, sharp on whitewashed village walls in the evening. Bliss.
Getting around
We always recommend hiring a car to get the best out of La Alpujarra and the wider region.
