Make a holiday rental home or village house in Albunuelas, Spain your home away from home

Nestled at the head of the picturesque Lecrin Valley, Albunuelas is one of many traditional, whitewashed villages in the region that have well preserved their Moorish heritage. Whether you plan to spending your days walking and wildlife-spotting in the surrounding mountains, visiting the beach towns of the Costa Tropical or simply enjoying local village life, self-catering accommodation in Albunuelas can help you achieve your perfect Spanish holiday.

Things to do in Albunuelas, Spain

The beautiful Lecrin Valley, situated south of the city Granada, is home to a number of small towns and villages that continue to maintain a traditional Spanish way of life. Albunuelas is a fine example of such a village, with its whitewashed buildings with their Moorish influences home to families and businesses that have been in the village for many generations.

Many of the accommodation options in Albunuelas provide panoramic views out over the fruit orchards and unspoilt scenery of the Lecrin Valley. Many visitors head to this part of Spain to enjoy walking and hiking in these surrounding mountains, and there are plenty of designated trails to follow if this is your wish. Others are happy to stroll around the village and visit the shops, cafes and bars that line its cobbled streets, before heading back to their accommodation and watching the sun set with a glass of local wine in hand.

There is a small supermarket in the village, a Thursday morning market, and a local bread van comes around each morning, but if you prefer to venture out to eat you will discover that tapas is the order of the day in this part of Spain, and sharing plates are usually free when you purchase drinks in the local bars.

                                                            A beautiful house in a perfect location

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            What a lovely house. The photos of the property are good but it feels more spacious with the open plan kitchen, dining and living area, and a wonderful roof terrace with superb views all around. The village is a classic small Spanish village with only a few tourists. The locals are often out and about and are very friendly. The location is superb - 20 minutes to Granada, 30 minutes to the beach. Los Alpujarras nearby with the towns of Llanjaron and Orgiva. Pampaneira and Capileira are a must visit. Salobrena is a wonderful beach town with great bars, in particular Resaurante El Penon - gorgeous food and excellent service. The large supermarket at Durcal is only 10 minutes away and you can get pretty much everything there - though a visit to the market on the edge of Durcal on a Wednesday is to be recommended. There are lovely walks locally and further afield. Basically you can't better the location if you are wanting to explore the area. The house was very clean and tidy and has an excellent wood burning stove - we were there in April and the nights were a bit chilly. Our next door neighbour, who looked after the house, was friendly, positive and crucially didn't speak Spanish too quickly! She even brought us in some fabulous tartes one day! What a star. There are 2 restaurants in the village, though we only visited Los Naranjos - very well named as the region is prolific with oranges. In fact oranges and lemons abound everywhere you go - pick one off a tree and try it. Extraordinary. The restaurant was good and relaxed - and had wifi (which the house doesn't have). I guess that would be the only thing I would change as wifi is very useful for exploring the area and planning what to do - also for booking the Alhambra online. All in all, a superb village house which I would thoroughly recommend.
