White villages - Pueblos blancos

The landscape of the Alpujarras is dotted with ancient whitewashed villages.

The block shaped houses huddle together on steep mountainsides, their conical chimneys with "witches hat" rain covers are a sight exclusive to our local valleys. Walking the narrow streets of these "pueblos blancos", you will feel transported to the past as so much of what you see is old and original.

Many of the villages such as Pampaneira and Bubion have shops selling local specialities like rugs and ceramics, often very cheap, or foods such as hams, honey and olive oil.

Granada and the Alhambra

One hour's drive north from where we live is Granada, once the home of the renowned poet, Garcia Llorca. The city is famous for its Moorish neighbourhoods, the Albazin, (pronounced Albythin) and Sacremonte. Moorish architecture reaches a peak in the world famous palace, the Alhambra, which is a must for any visitor to Granada.  The city centre is a maze of small streets and cosy palm-lined squares. In the evenings there are flamenco performances, especially in Sacremonte, the gypsy area. The city  attracts top performers from all over Spain. Half an hour's drive from Granada are the peaks of the Sierra Nevada, covered in snow until June. There is a ski resort here, open until March.

Our latest discovery is the descent of the Rio Verde, a light green river with jungle-like vegetation. With a guide you descend the river by jumps, natural waterslides, swimming and abseiling. But you can also go there for a swim and a picnic.

Mediterranean sea and beaches

Alpujarra casa Bayacas Bayacas

The azure blue Mediterranean Sea is just 45 minutes away by car or bus. The coast is known as the Costa Tropical or the Costa Tranquilla and enjoys a subtropical climate. There is an abundance of exotic flora like mango trees, bananas, papaya and custard apples and beautiful flowering plants all the year round. The small towns along this part of the coast are attractive and unspoilt with plenty of opportunities for shopping or relaxing in one of the many beach bars and restaurants. Between the towns are many completely wild beaches, some without even a cafe, if you feel like exploring.
