This hundred year old pueblo house is situated on the accessible GR7 trans Iberian walk. It was restored simply using natural materials within the metre thick walls. There are 2 double and one twin bedrooms a small patio,with table chairs and a barbeque overlooks an almond orchard and mountains beyond.

Alcutar is still a primitive village, but does have a bar and bread is delivered daily. All normal mod cons are supplied with limited TV, DVD, microwave, electric heating, efficient wood burning stove, and

washing machine. The beds will be made up on arrival and cleaning undertaken by Carmen at the end of your adventurous holiday. A swimming pool is nearby in the El Cercado resort which also offers a spa and a restaurante. The Sea is an hour away.

Regret it is not handicapped friendly.

The access road is steep as are the stairs.

About The Owner

I am a qualified English nurse and at the time had opened a clothing/ alternative items shop in Cadiar. With the financial depression I was forced to seek nursing where there was a need in the Costa Blanca and so moved to Jávea with my daughter.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Granada Province (Costa Tropical)

I was introduced to it whilst in the local bar one night, fell in love with the village and spent the following year converting it.

What makes this house unique

The Alpujarras mountain range on the south side of the Sierra Nevada offers the opportunity to step back in time. All the small white villages cling to the hillside,the flat roofed houses havie slate roofs supported by large tree trunks.

The area is unspoilt, the population still working the land.

Very rural and a complete contrast to the normal rat race of life. Fields ploughed with mules, sheep pass the door. A pig lives next door.Neighbours will walk kms to pick their produce.

Only an hour to Granada and it's history.

Great beaches to the south.

The Alpujjaras with white flat roofed houses villages are dotted along this south side of the Sierra Nevada.

This area is crossed by the GR7...part of the renown routes for walkers across Spain.

Each local village also has well marked hikes around them. So drive to a local village, say 10/15 kms away....after a beer, walk in its local area and back to a late lunch...if you haven't taken a picnic.

The weather, being at 1000 + metres is cooler and more refreshing than on the coast. Snow will be visible on the Sierra Nevada peaks all year.

A local resort, El Cercado, has a pool, spa and restaurant...about 15 mins walk.

It is difficult to explain how therapeutic a holiday in the Alpujarras is...just try it.
