Make a holiday rental home or townhouse in Ugijar, Spain your home away from home

Ugijar is a small, traditional Spanish village in the province of Granada, and a great holiday rental destination for those that want to get off the beaten tourist track. As well as offering authentic attractions, cuisine and holiday accommodation in the village centre, Ugijar is on the fringes of the Sierra Nevada National Park, making it a great base for almost any type of outdoor activity holiday.

Things to do in Ugijar, Spain

The village of Ugijar has remained loyal to its Spanish roots, and as a result offers tourists traditional attractions rather than modern ones. One of the highlights are the local tapas bars, where you can enjoy a selection of sharing plates or simply opt for the ‘Menu del Dia’. Either way, the prices are more than reasonable, and even the most seasoned of travellers are likely to be able to try something they have not tasted before.

The church is the main focal point in the village centre, with a number of narrow side-streets darting off around it. This is also where you will find the local market, which is something of a local favourite and a great place to pick up food supplies, clothes, leather goods and various other souvenirs. The stalls open up early in the morning, and you should allow at least two hours to peruse.

The Sierra Nevada National Park is also literally on the doorstep of Ugijar, and offers a wealth of both summer and winter activities. Whether you are into mountain biking, hiking, bird-watching, wildlife-spotting, horse-riding, skiing, or simply walking around and taking in the scenery, you are certain to be able to find something of interest to do, and to end up with plenty of scenic photograph opportunities.

Places to visit on holiday in Ugijar, Spain

The fringes of the Sierra Nevada National Park are scattered with small, rural villages like Ugijar, and an enjoyable and fulfilling vacation can be spent alternating between them and the National park itself. Alpujarra (18km) and Valor (8km) are two of the closest, and the best places to start your ‘village-hopping’ tour. Another option is to head to the big cities, such as Granada (100km north-west) and Almeria (80km south-east).

Weather in Ugijar, Spain

The region around Ugijar is renowned for its excellent air quality, clear skies and hours of sunshine. Winters are the perfect example of this, with near-zero temperatures but still hour upon hour of sun. The snow melts as the spring arrives, and the summer months can receive excellent temperatures of up to and over 30C.

Flights to Ugijar, Spain

The best way of getting to Ugijar from the UK is to fly to Almeria Airport (LEI), which is 99km from the village – a journey which will take around an hour and a half. An overnight stop-off in Almeria is strongly recommended, allowing you to enjoy the attractions of this historical city, before heading on to your holiday rental accommodation in Ugijar.

There was nothing to spoil this tranquiity. Robin was very generous and supplied more wood for the large living room fire as the evenings were getting chilly in October, the fire kept thenlarge bliving room warm. The Mill had everything we needed for our holiday and we feel very privilidged to have been able to stay in this magical place. We would have loved to stay longer and explore more of the area and would love to return.

Owners were staying on site and were around daily to clean the pool and maintain the lovely garden area. Beaches nearby were quiet and clean. Situated above a busy road, and after having spent a week in the very secluded and peaceful mountains, it was noisier than expected. The owners were helpful and friendly. From the house you can easily access many lovely white villages,including Pampeneira and Frigiliana near Nerja. A super base to explore from.

Homely and spacious (well for the two of us anyway) with it's own roof terrace adjoining the owner's (but separated by a high wall) , and a lovely covered terrace adjoining the living room, cooler in the day. The house is in the lovely 'white' village of Fereirolla, with great views from both terraces over the surrounding countryside which has wonderful walks, one beginning quite literally from right outside the front door. It was so peaceful, more than we would have expected in a village location. We were able to walk to an excellent French vegetarian restaurant, and a more cheap and cheerful pizzeria ( both around 15 minutes) for dinner in the evenings, and it's a short car ride to Pitres which has a very good supermarket and bakery. Barbara is a very nice host and couldn't have been more helpful. What can I say...we loved it!
