A comfortable house in a very peaceful setting
We had a very enjoyable stay in this house. It was a good base to visit Granada and the Sierra Nevada as well as the surrounding area. If we're ever in the area again we will be back!
spacious and modern yet traditional.
The house was comfortable and warm with the woodburner lit,plenty of space and storage. A toaster would have been useful. Nice and clean. Upstairs double bed comfy.but two singles sagging and difficult to get out of! Pillows generally were inadequate, getting a hot shower was difficult,and not very hot,! Would have been good for caretaker to call by. Cooking facilities excellent.tvdvd excellent. Perhaps a nicer cover on the pool as it was the major outlook when dining or on the terrace. Overall:good,little improvements would make a big difference.good value for the money.Proprty was as described.very private and quiet. My main reason forvstaying was to climb in the Sierra Nevada.About an hour away. Good local shops and not too far from the town of Motril for a greater choice.
Lovely village house in the mountains
A really lovely property in the middle of a mountain village. Well appointed, with a nice small pool and plenty of indoor space. Two terraces, and plenty of space around the pool. An excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area, and would definitely go again.
Authentique et rural
Une maison mitoyenne, sobre, décorée avec goût, très bien située pour visiter les grandes villes, les villages typiques et la nature andalouse (son plus gros point fort).
Pour une pause avec des voisins espagnols uniquement, près d'une ferme (ne pas redouter les odeurs de nos amis animaux et le chant matinal des coqs), à l'abri des grosses chaleurs de la côte andalouse (le village est situé en hauteur, les nuits sont plus fraîches).
L'accueil du propriétaire et de son agent, sur place, est carré et sympathique.
Pour ceux qui souhaitent avant tout vadrouiller l'Andalousie tout en se posant dans un endroit calme et authentique (pas d'animation et les commodités, magasins, sont minima à 10 mn de route). Piscine en plus mais ne doit pas constituer un critère de sélection.
This is our second visit to this lovely traditional village house. Our first trip was in March and we fell in love with the area. We took advantage of the excellent location to go skiing in the Sierra Nevada. It is close enough to spend a day skiing and then have supper in Granada on the way back. The weather was good and so we also spent a couple on the beach at Salobrena. The cooler evenings were spent cosily relaxing in front of the wood burning stove. We enjoyed the rest of our time exploring the beautiful city of Granada, walking along the local paths through orange and lemon groves and visiting other villages in the Lecrin valley. On our most recent visit we shared the house with two friends and went walking in the Alpujarras as well as finding time to relax around the well maintained pool. The house is fully equipped and situated in a friendly neighbourhood. I would recommend a stay here. You can choose to do as much or as little as you want. Couples can choose a quiet romantic holiday, families have the pool, the beaches, skiing and sightseeing. The close proximity of the Alpujarras is fantastic for anyone who likes walking. There are walks for all levels of ability and there is a wealth of information available in the house. The bread and chocolate croissants from the local bakery are delicious!
We found this house clean, comfortable & well equipped with a choice of lovely outdoor areas to relax & we made good use of the pool and barbecue. The village was charming with amazing views from the top of the lower barrio. Notes from the owner were very helpful both in terms of the house & the area. Easy Motorway access made Grenada, The Sierra Nevada's, The Alpajurra and the beach easily reachable. A lovely part of Spain to explore which we'd highly recommend.
The village of Pinos del Valle is situated amongst orange, lemon, olive and almond trees overlooking Lake Beznar at the eastern end of the Lecrín Valley, itself the western extension of the Alpujarra. At an altitude of 705m, it is cooler than the coast in summer but sheltered in winter. It provides an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. The city of Granada (25 min) is home to the Moorish Alhambra palace and Seville and Córdoba can be reached in around two and a half hours. The Mediterranean coast (25 min) provides both lively resorts and quiet coves. The Sierra Nevada, snow-capped for much of the year, surround the village and can be reached easily via the spa town of Lanjarón (15 min). Órgiva (30 min) is the centre for the Alpujarra valley with its famous white villages and opportunities for walking, botany and outdoor pursuits. The mountains are also the home of Europe's most southerly ski resort, Sol y Nieve (45 min).
