TRADITIONAL WHITE MOUNTAIN VILLAGE HOUSE, IDEAL WALKING /TOURING, 30 MINS GRANADA

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Albunuelas

CASA MORISCA is a typical Mudejar house, lovingly restored, around an open patio, with tiled floors and exposed beams in all rooms. 20% DISCOUNT UNTIL SEPTEMBER. Thick walls with small windows and traditional shutters keep it cool and shaded in summer. Perfect for short breaks.

Just one hour to the SKIING and a season December to May make this an ideal base for mixing a couple of days on the slopes with other activities and for groups with some non-skiiers.

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. It also looks down into the inner patio with its barbecue, flowers and a fountain.

Through the front door of Casa Morisca, a traditional lounge with arab style banquettes and fireplace with woodburning stove is on the right and to the left a modern kitchen. This leads into the open patio, which lights the dining room and a double bedroom which has a shower and wc en-suite. There is the sound of running water throughout the house from the fountain in the patio as well as a centuries old fountain in the downstairs suite, which still supplied water to the previous occupants.

On the first floor are the master bedroom with king size bed, a twin bedroom, a bathroom with full size bath and a study.

DISCOUNT 24 euros for couples using only one bedroom. DISCOUNT 100 euros per week for additional weeks. LONG or SHORT stays - add/deduct price per night [one seventh of additional week rate]. FREE SET OF WALKING GUIDES in English, with all bookings.

"The house was great. The lounge was very dark, but this meant that it was also cool during the hottest part of the day. Breakfast on the roof terrace was wonderful, with good shade and views of the mountains. The house was clean, and the only noise was the birds and the beep of the bread van when it came round in the morning.
The house is in the middle of a large village which has a number of good bars. There is a good road to the motorway and to other places to visit.
We went in the spring, but the weather was too hot to go walking, which disappointed us, as the area looked as if there would be some very good walks.
Grenada is a drive away, and the Alhambra was amazing!
The only down side is a very steep hill up to the car park, you get some good exercise each day, but carrying luggage up the hill was not easy on our departure - this is definitely not for someone with limited mobility."

Owner's Response: Walking is best at dawn.We climb up the valley first when it is cool and then return down to the village as the sun rises for a late breakfast. People with limited mobility should ask about our other house ref 6233727.

"La casa esta bien equipada igual que aparece en las fotos. Los propietarios y vecinos muy amables.
El entorno es muy bonito aunque el acceso a algunos pueblos es algo incomodo debido a la ubicacion donde se encuentran.

"Maison de caractère, meublée et décorée avec goût, qui nous plonge dans la réalité d'un village andalous. L'accueil fut très agréable et diligent, notamment face à une chaudière plutôt capricieuse..."

ALBUÑUELAS is an old Andaluz pueblo blanco, a village of white houses, lying at 737m, at the head of the Lecrin valley, on the steep side of the Río Santo gorge, beneath the Sierra de Albuñuelas which rises to 1504m at Herrero. Verdant and well irrigated since the time of the Moors, it grows a wealth of oranges, lemons, pomegranates, avocados, mangoes and vegetables - with almonds and olives, and pines covering the higher slopes. Something is being harvested at all times of the year. 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 and the others less than an hours drive, it is an ideal centre.

Its history goes back to the beginning of the millennium when Albuñuelas was on the routes of al Idrisi, the first arab geographer, and of Leon el Africano who travelled from Timbuktu to Granada. Many of the Albuñelenses still farm the surrounding terraced campos and can be seen commuting in the mornings by mule with tools, and dogs - even a goat - and returning laden later. They may travel for an hour to get to their patch, which could be up the far side of the gorge. There are three bridges over the river Santo and an extensive network of mule tracks up the hillside and a number of unmetalled forestal tracks, which give tremendous scope for walking and mountain bikes. Caballo at 3013m stands to the east of the valley and is capped in snow until well into spring after the almond blossom has fallen.
