Guide to Los Guajares.

Los Guajares consists of three villages, set in a beautiful sub-tropical valley with bananas, olives, mangoes, loquat, etc, growing in abundance. From the village of Guajar Faraguit you can enjoy spectacular views of the mountains and "castillejo" (a medieval settlement, approx. 3/4 hour walk from the village). Indeed the villages have the benefit of being set in a beautiful mountain landscape, whilst being only 20 minutes from the nearest beaches at Salobreña and Motril.

The main village is Guajar Faraguit with Guajar Fondon and Guajar Alto close by. This valley is the perfect place to escape the pressures and demands of modern life, spending your precious free time in the most stunning part of Spain. The pace of life here is slow, with working mules still an everyday sight, as arboriculture is the main agricultural employment in the area, and many paths into the countryside are not accessible by car. As you walk through the village you will be greeted by the villagers with a 'hola' and a 'vaya con dios' (go with God), as the number of foreign visitors is still small and they are warmly welcomed by the locals.

There are several bars, restaurants, bakeries and grocers in the villages and also a bank and pharmacy, so you do not need to leave the valley whilst on holiday. There are two daily deliveries of fresh bread, and also fish deliveries, frozen goods etc. (which many locally rely on, as they often do not have cars).

If you do decide to leave the valley, you can find bars, shops, restaurants, etc on the nearby coast, in the pretty white village of Salobreña and the bustling town of Motril. Salobreña is a popular resort with the Spanish. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, supermarkets etc. There is also a walk up to the castle – nice for an early evening stroll.

In winter you have the choice to spend a day on the beach or skiing in the Sierra Nevada or in fact you can do both on the very same day!! Only 1 ½ hours away in the Sierra Nevada you find Spain’s most modern ski resort, Europe's ski station with the most sun hours in winter. The high guarantee of snow, long and wide ski slopes (up to 75km!), low prices and the very pleasant ambience make this a ski destination with an international reputation.

For those interested in golf, only 20 mins away from the valley, down on the coast, there is a superbly set golf course, between Motril and Salobreña. Play golf with the sea to one side and the snow covered peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the other. The family members, who don’t feel like joining you playing golf, can sunbathe on the beach, take a dip in the sea or enjoy the restaurants and cafes of the golf club. Another golf course will open soon near Salobreña and yet another one half way to Granada.

The area is also ideal for painting, walking, pony trekking, climbing, cycling and paragliding.

Travel to Los Guajares

Granada is the nearest airport (60km) with international flights and serves many destinations in the UK as well as France, Switzerland, Italy and Holland. Malaga (120 kms) has flights to just about all destinations in Europe. Almeria is also a possible airport for this area, being about the same distance away from the valley as Malaga. Car hire can be arranged at very competitive prices from all of these airports (and should always be booked in advance for the best value).

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We stayed 15 days in Sharons beautiful cottage just outside of Frigiliana. Everything was as described on the website about the house. Kitchen (well-equipped) and living/dining room in the upper level, which has access to an amazing terrace facing south towards Frigiliana and the Mediterranean. Downstairs the bedroms and bathroom are; as well as access to the garden. The house was rustic and charming, exactly what houses should look like in Andalucia. It was easily heated in the chilly evenings; has a very effective wood burning stove as well as several electric heaters. It was very private and a very quiet area, although it was only 1400 m to the entrance of Frigiliana; it took us 15-20 minutes to walk there (to Frigiliana it is downhill, and back home is uphill). We were bringing our 2 dogs and they immediately felt at home; the only thing we would have loved, was if the property (or part of it) was fenced, so the dogs could run out by themselves. Frigiliana is a beautiful village! We were cycling many hours every day, and the roads are generally in very good condition, except 8 km between the house and Torrox. It is very hilly terrain, the only flat is along the coastline to the west of Nerja. There are an abundance of spectacular MTB routes in the area. The access to the house is easy, the entrance is just few metres off the road. Sharon was very kind and welcoming and we couldn't have had a better stay! We really look forward to come back in June/July, to spend the summer holidays in this wonderful house; and enjoy long warm summer evenings sitting on the terrace resting after a hard day of training in the muntains. We highly recommend the house and Sharon, you won't be disappointed.

The villa is fully equipped for everything you need and we were greeted with another warm welcome from Boz & Polly. Boz also told us about new restaurants which had opened (which were as good as he said). The location offers superb views, and the villa provides us with all the comfort we need for a relaxing week in the winter sun. Many thanks Boz and we hope to see you again soon
