Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Alpujarra de la Sierra, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

Tucked in under the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and facing in the direction of the Mediterranean Sea, in Andalusia, is the small village of Alpujarra de la Sierra. Don’t expect hotels here; instead, self catering accommodation in Alpujarra de la Sierra is the best option. Each one is fully equipped with everything that you need to make yourself feel at home right away, and a holiday rental cottage in Alpujarra de la Sierra is the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful area. If you are after pumping nightlife then you need to look elsewhere. A holiday in Alpujarra de la Sierra is for those people that like the great outdoors, no matter what time of year it is.

Things to Do on Holiday in Alpujarra de la Sierra, Spain

A holiday in Alpujarra de la Sierra is especially suited to those people that like the outdoor life, and there are a huge range of activities that you can do here. It is close by two of the main long distance walking routes in Spain, the GR7 and the GR142. Whilst you probably won’t want to walk the full length, a day or even two day hike along them will enable you to see all manner of interesting wildlife and spectacular views. The coast is also close by, being less than an hour’s drive away, and so if you fancy a swim in the sea or simply sunbathing on perfect beaches, the option is there. During the winter, the mountains have some fine skiing opportunities.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Alpujarra de la Sierra, Spain

Being placed on the southern slops of the Sierra Nevada mountains, your holiday rental cottage in Alpujarra makes a natural base from which to explore the national park area of the mountains themselves. Nature lovers may be fortunate enough to spot wild ibex, eagles and wild boar. Even if you are unlucky on this front, the mountains are a photographer’s dream, whether you are an amateur or pro. A little farther away, is the city of Granada. This ancient city has a history dating back thousands of years, and still retains some Roman as well as Moorish influences. The world famous Alhambra Palace is certainly worth the journey alone.

Weather in Alpujarra de la Sierra, Spain

As Alpujarra de la Sierra is quite small, which of course adds to its charm, exact figures about its weather are not available. However, in general one can expect clear skies no matter what the time of year, and sunshine all year round. The summer months of July and August are the hottest, whilst December and January the coolest. Due to its altitude, the winter is much chillier than on the coast, and you may need to wrap up at night during the coolest months.

The villa itself is a really nice traditional Villa and we would certainly visit again.

Within easy walking distant to the town center, there is an excellent bakery just down the street. The town has a good selection of bars and places to eat in particular we enjoyed sitting in the town square having coffee, wine and tapas at Mario's. Molino's tucked away near the traffic lights has a great secluded courtyard, friendly staff and lovely food. For a treat try meals at The Taray Hotel. Hope to stay there again soon.

Both Nick and Pauline's warm welcome and care ensured that we made the very best of our time there. The house was very comfortable and the views outstanding. A great place to stay.
