EL TINAO - A TOWNHOUSE WITH SOARING VIEWS TOWARDS THE MEDITERRANEAN.

Canar House Rental Photos and Description

House With 2 ensuite bedrooms and Jacuzzi In A Charming Unspoiled Village.

El Tinao is a new 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 clock tower from the terraces. 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!

Additional facilities: El Tinao has a TV for playing DVD/CDs, and a selection of DVDs, books and games is provided. Canar has 3 bars serving tapas and traditional Alpujarran meals. There is a pharmacy and a well-stocked grocers which even opens on Sundays! Swimming is available in Orgiva for a small charge.

Further afield: Golf - there are 2 courses within 40 minutes of Canar; one on the coast in Salobrena, the other on the near side of Granada city. Skiing - the World Championship resort of Pradollano in the Sierra Nevada is 1 hour 15 minutes from Canar, while paragliding, windsurfing and diving are available in Salobrena and Almunecar on the Costa Tropical. The historic cities of Sevilla and Cordoba are both within reach for day trips, each at approximately 3 hours' drive. Not forgetting, of course, The Alhambra Palace and Generalife gardens in Granada, and we will happily book advance tickets for guests.

Canar is a great base from which to explore La Alpujarra either on foot or by car. The famous GR7 walking route goes right through the village, with the famous spa town of Lanjaron a 2 hour walk to the west, and a glorious 200 foot waterfall (El Dique) marking the half way point to Soportujar in the east (an easy 1.5 hour walk). We provide copies of The Rough Guide to Andalucia, Jeremy Rabjohn's excellent 'Holiday Walks in The Alpujarra' and a detailed walking map which you're free to take with you whenever you're heading out.

El Tinao is tucked away off the village square and is the perfect retreat for a quiet relaxing holiday as well as having fantastic views across the valley and towards the coast. We loved opening the shutters in the morning to watch the sun rise over the hills and in the evening relax on the balcony by candlelight with the lovely village of Canar gently lit up against the night sky. We'll miss the double chiming church bell, the bird song and the friendly villagers. The apartment itself was ideal. Very comfortable, well equipped and lovely and cool after a hot day in the mountains. Robin was always to hand to answer questions and nothing was too much trouble. We'll definitely be back!

Wow,I absolutely adored this place.
Robin was the most helpful of hosts, indeed the holiday started with Robin picking me up from the bus from Malaga - I texted him from the bus saying I was about to arrive and he texted me back saying he was in 'the black van following the bus'!
Arriving at the house in Canar, Robin had provided a nice set of provisions for a late arrival as well as the lovely touch of a bottle of Rioja (much needed after a long bus journey from Malaga).
The house is very clean and well organised and has all the amenities you could wish for including a well provisioned kitchen, washing machine and lashings of hot water on tap. The roof terraces have absolutely stunning mountain views, all to be enjoyed with the aid of food and drink from the one terrace or a jacuzzi soak from the other.
Robin makes him self available at all times should you require any information or assistance and there are also various reference books and guides for guest use.
Canar is a very nice village, with friendly people, a decent shop and a lovely languid feel to the whole place. It feels as though you have stepped out of time when you are there and indeed the village clock chimes the hour twice at five minute intervals as if to remind itself that it's part of the real world.
The house is right next to the GR7 trail path, and is well placed for superb mountain walks, a good example being the 90 minute not-to-taxing stroll to the village of Soportujar via an impressive waterfall.
All in all a terrific place and location, in fact I liked it so much I am going back next week to repeat the whole experience!

stunning views and local charm

A perfect base to explore the Sierra Nevadas. The drive from Malaga is straightforward with stunning views as you head up from Orgiva to Canar. We had a warm welcome from Robyn and he left us some wine, beer and supplies. The apartment is lovely and has all mod cons. The hot tub was a real bonus to ease our tired legs after wandering around the beautiful villages. The local shop is superbly well stocked and we had freshly baked bread every morning. Granda and the coast are within an easy drive, for perfect day trips. We had good weather and Robyn's recommendations for restaurants and scenic road trips really made our holiday. My seven year old godson loved the freedom and I would recommend families to stay here. Walkers and gastronomes will find this a perfect base to explore and indulge from. The price was perfect. We will have wonderful memories of our 5 days and I will be looking forward to the summer holidays when I can return again. Thank you Robyn. Karrie , Ailsa and Murray

A fantastic week

We had a fantastic week at El Tinao. The accommodation was great - lovely having two balconies, especially the one with the hot tub where you could relax after walking or sightseeing, just sit back and look at the mountains. It was lovely to stay in the heart of the village, with the clock chiming, the dogs barking and life going on around you. Although we cannot speak Spanish we managed to get by with sign language. All the villagers were friendly, especially in the local shop. We had a day in Granada which was fascinating. Robin could not have been more helpful, advising on restaurants, shops, etc., but a special thank you to him for meeting us in the village at 1:00am after our flight was delayed. A wonderful holiday. We will be back. Alice and Andy Mills

Canar is the first village of the High Alpujarra, overlooking the local market town of Orgiva. Just below the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, and on the famous GR7 walking route, Canar is only an hour from The Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens in Granada.
