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.

The Poqueira gorge is our fave in the Alpujarras and the view from the terrace at Casa Luna is second to none. To watch sunrise and sunset from here I doubt can be beaten! Luna is a lovely, cosy, traditional house and one that we'll definitely return to. We tend to dine out, but the facilities are there for you to decide. You'll certainly return home refreshed and with that view permanently emblazened in your mind.

It was very well equipped and the views from the lounge (and roof terrace) were just amazing! The bedrooms were warm and the bed super-comfy. We appreciated the warm brushed-cotton bedding and extra blankets, as it was quite cool in February when we were there. The fire in the lounge warmed the bathroom too by a clever vent system. Firewood was available to purchase just a couple of doors down from Casa Josefa. The village of a Capiliera is very pretty and interesting just to stroll around. However, it has all we needed for our holiday in terms of a small supermarket, bakery, pharmacy and some lovely restaurants. We would definitely stay in Capiliera at Casa Josefa again as it was a great base for walking, our main reason for holidaying at this time of year. I wish we could have stayed for longer this time - thank you Elena and family for making us feel so welcome.

It has been renovated simply and sympathetically, giving a real taste of traditional Alpujarran mountain living. The February evenings and nights are cold: we loved having the log fire burning. There were 4 in our party (2 adults, 2 kdis), which worked really well. With larger numbers, pressure on the bathroom and hot water system might feel a bit much.The location in Capileira is perfect: a quiet picturesque steep narrow street, just a few moments' walk from shops and restaurants, and from hiking trails into the stunning surrounding countryside. We very much hope to stay here again.
