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.

Stunning situated house with views over the valley in the pedestrian alleyways of this lovely town

4 of 5
The house is on a corner with unimpeded views from the first floor lounge terrace across the gorge. Currently, the village map describes a walking tour of the village going through the tinea under the terrace, allowing for plenty of people watching. We really loved its situation just a little way down from the town square. The house was well maintained with adequate kitchen equipment, towels and bedding, and a wood burner for the winter and extra heating if required. Arrival/check in was efficient as arranged. Our week in May went from a sizzling 32 down to 8 during the day which sent us into a local bar that had its wood burner going! As keen walkers we found this a great place to base ourselves, with plenty of walks from the door. However, it is important to note that the village is very steep and although all the paths are well maintained they are challenging on the knees for the unwary and can be a bit slippery when wet. (wheeled luggage becomes slightly redundant) We would definitely recommend Casa Luna and Capileira for those who want a quiet, quirky place to stay with lots of good paths and easy going traditional food available in a number of restaurants and bars, just don't plan to eat before 8pm.

Beautiful house in wonderful location with breathtaking views

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this well equipped house. The house was spacious for our party of six and beautifully located. The pool was clean and well lit for evening swims. A perfect place to relax and unwind with a nightingale singing outside our bedroom window! Key collection and arrival arrangements were easy and friendly. Thank you very much.
