Typical centuries old house in ALBUNUELAS, lovingly and sympathetically architect restored: open patio, tiled floors, exposed beams in all rooms. Thick walls, small windows, traditional shutters, cool in summer, cozy log-burning stove for winter. Perfect base for walking and exploring: coast, skiing one hour; Granada, Alpujarras 30 min
The house is down in the heart of the old village, enclosed in Moorish style by other properties; but its second floor terrace gives a wonderful view over the roof tops and looks into inner patio with flowers and fountains
GROUND FLOOR lounge with arab style banquettes and woodburning stove, modern kitchen, open patio, double bedroom, shower and wc en-suite
FIRST FLOOR master bedroom, king size bed, twin bedroom, bathroom with full size bath, wc, study
ROOF TERRACE with river gorge view

ALBUÑUELAS is an old village of white houses, lying at 737m, on the steep side of the Río Santo gorge, the highest of a dozen villages in Lecrin valley. With open country all around it has within WALKING DISTANCE shops, a bank, a choice of bars, a restaurant and a weekly market. Verdant and well irrigated since the time of the Moors, it grows a wealth of oranges, lemons, pomegranates, vegetables - with almonds and olives, and pines covering the higher slopes. There are still mules at work.
Midway from the City of Granada to the coast at Salobreña, its lake Beznar is fed by the melting snows of the Sierra Nevada. Unlike the adjacent Alpujurra it remains hidden from the influences of tourism, but with Granada half an hour it is an ideal touring centre.
Bridges over the river Santo, many mule tracks and unmetalled forestal tracks give tremendous scope for walking and mountain bikes. Caballo at 3013m seen east of the valley is snow capped until the almond blossom has fallen.
