Make a holiday rental home or villa in Bubion, Spain your home away from home

The outskirts of the Sierra Nevada, Europe’s most southerly skiing and outdoor pursuits resort, are scattered with a number of small villages and towns that provide good quality accommodation and traditional attractions for visitors. Bubion is one such village, with a recorded population of just 366, but which swells during peak holiday season. Much of this can be attributed to the idyllic positioning of the village, on the gorge of the Rio Poqueira, an area of historical importance and natural beauty.

Things to do in Bubion, Spain

Bubion is a great base for a holiday in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, and at different times of the year can be populated with any combination of skiers, climbers, hikers, nature lovers and various other outdoor pursuits’ enthusiasts. If you can’t wait to head out and explore, you will find a number of marked trials leading away from the village, offering an instant start for both beginners and experienced walkers. The most experienced may even consider using Bubion as a base from which to take on Mulhacen, the highest peak in the range.

The lofty position of the village means that panoramic views can be enjoyed from all around its centre, and if you are lucky, your Bubion holiday villa may even offer these stunning mountain views from its own terrace, allowing you to relax with a drink and soak it the relaxing atmosphere.

This attractive village has attractions of its own as well, mostly housed in the whitewashed Moorish buildings that are so typical of the region. Bubion’s highlight is its 16th century church, which is basic in structure, but prominent nonetheless.

The property has everything you need and the grounds are absolutely wonderful. The pool is very large and more suited to adults than children we would say but for our stay we could not have picked any better

                                                                                                      I rented the house to entertain friends and family coming to Spain for my daughter's wedding. People were coming and going over the month and the house became like home. Everyone loved it and it coped beautifully. Because it is split into three sections it is quirky, I am not sure that there is enough outside space for three different groups, especially around the pool, but for us it was perfect. Laura was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and she dealt with any problem quickly and very calmly. She has a lovely energy that added to the pleasure of the stay. The house is right on one of the routes of the Los Cahorros gorge walk in the Sierra Nevada and it is breathtaking. To be able to do this with the dogs on a daily basis was a joy, as were the gorgeous views of the mountains from the house. Not everything is perfect, it's an old and quirky house with the problems associated with such things. An odd electrical system that sometimes caused concern, a typical rural plumbing system that I am used to but could be challenging for those who are not used to the joys of country living, and the furniture around the pool needs overhauling. There is considerable country wildlife around and this did include a few visits by a local deer curious about the activity around the pool. Magical! The village of Monachil is wonderful, great cafes, restaurants (La Cantina del Diego being favourite), a friendly lively community and a regular bus service into Granada city. For walkers this place is paradise. Yes I would go back there if I needed somewhere of that size again, and my daughter and friends (who live in Granada city) couldn't stay away at the weekends and would love me to live there to provide them with a country retreat! I wish!
