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).

Superb house, lovely quiet location, with unbelievable views and great walking

5 of 5
We stayed here for 8 days in late May 2018. What a beautiful house, and what a superb host!. Having earlier, miraculously, found a supermarket that was open on a Sunday, we arrived at this gorgeous house and met the owner Jesus. He was charming and very helpful. Everything was spotlessly clean, and Jesus provided us with a welcome pack, including bread, ham, cheese, some gorgeous cakes, and a few drinks and beers!. There was plenty of firewood for the fire (which we used on the first night as it was a little chilly), as well as barbecue fuel and firewood. Each day we would have coffee on one of the terraces, always ending our day sipping some nice wine under the covered patio where there are comfortable cushioned seats and tables. We went shopping to Almunechar and Salabreno, where there is everything you could ever need. During our stay we lazed on the beaches, walked the hills, chilled by the pool, visited the local villages, and generally relaxed. I cannot think of a nicer place to relax!. The views from the house are spectacular, especially from the upstairs balcony, off the main bedroom. Access to the house is via a lane that is easy to negotiate, although not at speed!. You do not need a 4x4, as we had a Corsa that coped very well. Whilst the nearest village (Itrabo) is in the valley directly below the house, it is a steep walk back up again!. Other villages are about 10 minutes drive away, and the coast is 25 minutes. Malaga airport is 70 minutes away. I had hoped to stay here again in late September but, alas, it is already booked out. I will definitely return here another time for some peaceful, relaxing, tranquil days by the pool, lovely walks in the hills, and views to die for!. Thank you Jesus and Marilo. Martin & Sharon

Perfect villa for large groups

5 of 5
Great villa in nice remote surroundings. All the facilities needed. Large enough for 2 families, we were 9 inc. 2 kids. Car needed to reach the villa, be ready to drive in the mountains, which we enjoyed. Good service from the hosts. Will be in our thoughts for the next holiday.
