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).

Simple house, on green hills with great pool not far from the beach

5 of 5
Simple house, renovated farm with 4 separate appartments for 2 or 3 ( app 25m2 each, some with big outside terraces. Simple but dicent, clean, well equiped (each appartment has its own kitchen and bathroom). We were bigger group so we took whole house. There is additionally a big, common, open air kitchen with big table where we prepared all meals (all equipment even for big paella included). All appartments has good air conditioning. The placement is very quite at the end of the small road (quite narrow and impressioning at the first sight, but with nice parking lot at the end) on green hills with plantations of mango, avocado and chirimoya.The greatest jewel is a great pool (7x 5m; 1,6 m depth) very well entertrained. Not far from nice (sand and small stones) very large and not crowded (July/August!) beach in Almunecar ( app.12min by car). And last but definitely not least our host Juan Carlos who helps in all issues!

cool building, great view, lovely hosts

5 of 5
We just loved staying here! Eliseo and his wife waited for us over an hour to arrive and were so welcoming to us. They helped us organise a reliable babysitter for 2 nights while we ventured out on our own. It is located on the side of a hill so you have a glorious view of the town but can still walk to the restaurants. Distances to walk: * beach: 5 mins * supermarket (mercadona & lidl): 15 mins * ATM: 5-10 mins * waterpark: 15 mins * Playa San Cristobal: 20-25 mins We have a 14 month old, our primary concerns were: * cool room for him to sleep - CHECK * fully stocked kitchen for cooking - CHECK Each room has a ceiling fan which was better than A/C. In the heat of July we still didn’t need to turn the fans on full-noise. It must be something to do with the stone buildings, the temperate was always cool inside. We used the outside covered eating area with the supplied highchair to feed our son and then hose down the mess he put on the floor - so convenient having this outdoor eating area for messy kids! The kitchen has everything you need, from all the pans and cutlery to cook anything, to tupperware to store extra food. We felt like we were at home which allowed us to relax fully for the 10 days we were there. We will be returning for sure, can’t rate this place highly enough. Thanks Eliseo.
