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.

The summer months of July and August are the hottest, whilst December and January the coolest.

Great experience in Orgiva

5 of 5
The property was just as described - clean & tidy with everything we needed for our short stay. Peter met us & showed us round the townhouse & had helpfully left some local information for guests. We really enjoyed visiting Orgiva & surrounding area as hadn't been before. The shopping trolley & large umbrella came in handy & we also used the washing machine & got washing dried on clothes airer on wonderful roof terrace. Constant supply of hot water & good shower too. No complaints at all & wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Stunning situated house with views over the valley in the pedestrian alleyways of this lovely town

4 of 5
The house is on a corner with unimpeded views from the first floor lounge terrace across the gorge. Currently, the village map describes a walking tour of the village going through the tinea under the terrace, allowing for plenty of people watching. We really loved its situation just a little way down from the town square. The house was well maintained with adequate kitchen equipment, towels and bedding, and a wood burner for the winter and extra heating if required. Arrival/check in was efficient as arranged. Our week in May went from a sizzling 32 down to 8 during the day which sent us into a local bar that had its wood burner going! As keen walkers we found this a great place to base ourselves, with plenty of walks from the door. However, it is important to note that the village is very steep and although all the paths are well maintained they are challenging on the knees for the unwary and can be a bit slippery when wet. (wheeled luggage becomes slightly redundant) We would definitely recommend Casa Luna and Capileira for those who want a quiet, quirky place to stay with lots of good paths and easy going traditional food available in a number of restaurants and bars, just don't plan to eat before 8pm.
