Make a holiday cottage in Pinos Genil your home away from home

Pinos Genil holiday cottages are set conveniently between the mountains of the Sierra Nevada and the lovely city of Granada. This means you could spend a morning hiking, or even skiing, amid sublime upland scenery, and then the afternoon enjoying remarkable heritage at the famed Alhambra palace citadel. Holiday cottages in Pinos Genil combine rural cosiness with luxurious flourishes like private pools and gardens shaded by trees. Some of the views are captivating, taking in either Granada or the rugged peaks of the Sierra Nevada. If you're planning a trip with a large group then many holiday homes in Pinos Genil are very spacious, and can accommodate more than six visitors.

Things to do

-Central Granada. At the heart of this city you'll be surrounded by stunning medieval architecture and can explore narrow cobblestoned alleys that lead to quiet squares. The fragrance of great food will be ever present - Granada is loved for its excellent tapas. Sights not to miss in the city include the 16th Century Cathedral, the second largest in Spain and built over the former Great Mosque. The city's Muslim heritage is evident just south of the cathedral at the Alcaiceria, which was once a Moorish silk market.

-The Alhambra. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is Granada's most symbolic landmark. Only a limited number of visitors are permitted each day, so it's worth booking in advance. Essentially the Alhambra is a large royal complex that combines a palace, fortress, ornamental architecture and spectacular gardens, all with fabulous views over Granada. Key sights include the ruins of the Alcazaba fortress, and the lush Generalife gardens.

-Winter sport. 25 minutes southeast of the village of Pinos Genil is the Sierra Nevada ski station, which has a season that lasts from December to early-April. It's Europe's southernmost ski destination and sits at an elevation ranging from 2200 to 3300 metres. There are more than 100 kilometres of pistes here from green through to black. Other activities available include dog-sledding, skating and snow-shoeing, with spa and wellness amenities also provided.

-Other recreation. One of the best things about this location is the natural scenery, which is nothing short of beautiful. Two nearby lookout points include Alto Cerro de la Cruz and Paraje de la Fuente del Lobo. Meanwhile there's great fishing and a host of walking trails to discover. One of these is the Via Verde, which follows six kilometres of a former rail line, alongside the Genil River.

-Costa Tropical. Granada's Costa Tropical is within an hour's drive of Pinos Genil. Driving down the A-44 from Granada, Motril is the first major resort that you'll reach. Here there's a fine choice of beaches offering sand or small pebbles, and ranging from intimate coves to large bays. The largest is Playa de Poniente, complemented by beach bars, showers and typical beach facilities including sunbeds and parasols.

Weather in Pinos Genil

Pinos Genil holiday accommodation is in a Continental Mediterranean climate zone. Thanks to the elevation and nearby mountains, winters can be quite fresh in this region, while summers are long-lasting and hot, with temperatures that soar above 30 degrees in July and August. Nearby Granada is one of Spain's top four sunniest cities, and rainfall is uncommon throughout the year, apart from during a couple of months in the winter. There are also occasional frosts in December and January, when temperatures drop to freezing at night and rise to about 13 or 14 degrees by day.

Travel to Pinos Genil

Pinos Genil holiday homes are reachable from the UK via Federico Garcia Lorca Airport (GRX), which serves Granada. The airport sits about 25 minutes by car from the village of Pinos Genil and has a handful of connections with Britain. If you arrive at one of Andalucia's larger airports, at Sevilla, Malaga or Almeria then you could drive or take the train. Granada has a range of direct, long-distance rail links to cities including Barcelona, Madrid, Albacete and Valencia.

The apartment was warm on the rainy two days and the bed was comfortable. We were impressed by the whole experience and facilities. The little town was atmospheric with lovely little shops and the views of the snow capped mountain range in the distance was superb...pity the water levels were down on the lake so there was no views. The hikes in this area were perfect and we had great sunny days most of the week.

Laid back would be a good description of him but nothing is too much trouble. It helps if you are a little laid back too, and being a dog-lover is a must as Ollie's two lovely little terrier crosses are regular visitors. Pepper and Gomez (who lost a hind leg in a fight with other dogs 3 years ago but whose spirit is indomitable). The cottage and garden and picking oranges for breakfast juice every morning are special treats. Good weather helps of course and we shall return. Ollie has lived here for many years and is a reliable and wise source of local information. Cool nights are compensated by a super open fire and dry logs. Sublime! Difficult to find much to criticise but beds are not particularly comfortable and next time we shall bring our own pillows! Thank you Ollie.

It was clean and fresh and we were able to settle in immediately. It is situated in the Barrio Alto so is quiet at all times of the day and Orgiva has a very relaxed feel about it. We stayed for the month and were well situated for walking in the Alpujarras walking many a path in the Poqueira Valley and the Taha towns with a wonderful backdrop of the snow covered Sierra Navada. The almond trees were in full blossom on the mountain terraces and it was truly a wonderful experience. The Costa Tropical is only a short drive and both Salobrena and Calahonda are a delight to visit. Malaga and Granada are within easy reach for more cultural visits to Museums and Galleries. We didn't have one disappointing day. Kate was very responsive when we had a problem with TV reception and we were able to watch England beat Wales! A great holiday.
