Bubion, Las Alpujarras, Spain - A Five Minute Walk To The Bars And Restaurants
- english, spanish
About Roger Walker
Hi, We are a family that love the countryside, mountains and the outdoors. Daddy loves to Cycle and Walk in the mountains and Mother and daughter are a little more relaxed and prefer to sit back and admire the views. We both love Spain and especially the Alpujarrras. When we were looking for a base, we regarded ourselves so lucky to find this apartment in such a lovely location, that had just come onto the market. We come to Bubion whenever we can but find this more challenging now as we are living in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Roger Walker purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Roger Walker chose Bubión
We bought a property on this area after a holiday, following a recommendation from a friend. We of course love the views and the rustic villages but we also love the ambiance here. The locals are so friendly and so are the fellow visitors that are also here to enjoy the clean air mountains and tranquility.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the fact that we are high up in the mountains but the weather is still generally excellent. Being half way up a mountain range of over 3000m, We can escape even more by going much higher up the mountains or descend down to the lower regions. We are far enough away from the coastal areas but also plenty close enough for a trip if we fancy a day at the beach.

Fantastic weekend break
It was difficult to find and we lost phone reception but the little lady was waiting on us when we drove in to the street.
We hope we left the house in clean enough conditions for you.
The pool area was superb too and the water was nice and FREEZING
THANKS AGAIN X
Great location with amazing views
This apartment is perfect for exploring the local area and walking in the hills. Everything can be done straight from the door. The balcony is perfect to take in the scenery. We loved it!
We loved staying here can understand why you can't wait to get back! We didn't want to leave. Even though because I have a heart condition I couldn't do much high level walks there was still some lovely walks i could manage . It was also great to have so many options for eating out. Lovely time of year for wild flowers which as a botanist u wad interested in. The house is small but perfectly formed with all you need there.
We definitely wouldn't hesitate to visit again. There is so much more to Andulacia than the coast. Thank you for sharing your home .
Wonderful that you had a lovely stay. Thanks for the comments. I agree that Bubion is in such a pleasant village and located in such spectacular environs that it is an appealing and interesting destination at any time of the year.
Bubion is great
Small clean apartment for two. Lovely terrace looking down the valley. I'm sure we will be back again.
The Mediterranean beaches are are about an hour's scenic drive away. Some fantastic Mediterranean seaside villages and towns for a day visit. An hours twisty drive down and down the mountain.
Bubion is a prime location for mountain activities including hiking, horse riding and road and mountian biking. It is on the road up the highest pass in Europe running under the peak of the Mulhacen, the highest mountain in mainland Spain. If you are into biking this is a have to do climb. Forget L'Alpe d'Huez or Mont Ventoux Col du Galibier this is the one that is too high for the pro cyclists at altitude 3400 metres! This pass on the south side turns into a dirt track so is ideal for mountain bikes and is accessible by motor vehicle to around 2000m.Though It is a tarmac road all the way to the top from Granada.
Malaga 2 1/2 hours.
Almeria 3 hours.
Granada 1 1/2 hours.
Buses go to Bubion from Granada.
Car Hire is available at all major centres and airports.
Airport runs are also available to and from Bubion.
Bubion is the middle of three picturesque villages in the Poquiera Gorge. Each around a km way up or down via road or footpath
The mountainous Alpujarra region is located near the city of Granada which is well worth a visit with the Cathedral and the Alhambra. The Alpujarras are on the southerly slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains and the highest mountain on mainland Spain (The Mulhacen). The area is a natural reserve and a region rich, both, geographically and historically and so a really fascinating area to visit and explore.
Bubion is a high village at 1350m above sea level. Perfect to base yourself for hikes, mountain biking horse trekking. Also available locally are painting, pottery, dancing (flamenco) classes.
The village has a bank and an ATM machine, a mini-market. Plenty of places to go out and eat with many bars and restaurants in Bubion and the adjacent villages. bakeries, various craft and souvenir shops. There are many interesting local diversions, including hiking, horse-riding, mountain-biking, historic churches/villages, birdwatching, sitting in cafes watching the world go by. and other outdoor activities located in one of the most spectacular valleys. The E4/GR7 passes by the apartment.
It is always a magic moment as you travel up the twisting mountain road and round the corner into the Poquiera gorge, to see Bubion (the middle of three villages) seemingly hanging from the mountain high above. Explore the valleys and mountains from there, there are more than enough footpaths and trails to keep the most enthusiastic walkers entertained.
