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

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.

High and happy

5 of 5
A lovely,spacious cortijo with everything for ease and comfort. It has a very private and attractive garden and a beautiful pool.We had a brilliant 2 weeks with perfect weather and spent our time by the pool,and walking around the high and magical landscape. We only went out to go to the shops for provisions. Evenings we spent making barbeques, drinking lots of the local wine and star gazing. This is exactly how we like to spend our time on holiday.. Our hosts,Nigel and Louise were great. We would see them early in the day, for pool cleaning, and much warm and humourous conversation, after which they entirely respected our privacy. It was really good to have them close by, as it is an isolated place,,so if anything went wrong we could call on them. We had to do this once when we got lost up in the hills and I fell down a steep slope, and my wife put her hand in a wasps nest! We were promptly rescued and told that we weren't allowed out tomorrow! This was all highly entertaining. We also collectively walked up the mountain and watched the lunar eclipse together. That was magic! The location is beautiful, a valley surrounded on all sides by craggy rock and bush with paths climbing through and across the landscape, and really high with views across to Sierra Nevada. Walking up and out from the cortijo is very steep for 15 minutes, after which it gets easier. Driving up or down again is challenging. Not advisable at night! If you like nature,a bit of the wild, peace, beauty and a bit of keep fit activity, this is a perfect place to stay!

Fantastic property

5 of 5
If you enjoy peace and quiet and want to get away from everyone and everything then this is the property for you. It is beautifully fitted out and robin is very helpful. The pool is perfect and there is a stunning walk to the house with butterflies everywhere ..a little natural oasis in the Spanish countryside. Definitely the place to switch off from every day life and relax.
