Great Valley - Great holidays

  • 5 of 5

Great House, wonderful view, friendly houseowners - recommendation!

Everyone who loves nature and a peacful und beautyful atmosphere is absolutly right in this cottage. The house lies within a big garden full of olive trees, lemon trees and orange trees. In front of the house there is a really nice terrace with a beautiful view over the valley and the nearby village Albunelas. We appreciated the calm atmosphare, while having breakfast and dinner in front of the cottage.

The house itself has one combined livingroom with a kitchen and the big bed is in the same room, but separated by a little wall. There is a separate bathroom with a shower.

On the area of the estate there is also the house of the owners which is about 20 meters below. There you find the pool which contains absolutely clear water. There is also a big terrace where you can relax or have a barbecue, its very quite and nice.

We really appreciated our 2 weeks stay because of the relaxing atmosphare and the good postion of the house. With the car, it is about 30 min to Granada, and about 35 minutes to the beaches (very good roads). The owners of the house are two lovely women who provided us with fresh fruits, almonds and Insider tipps of Andalusia. They were always willing to help when there were any problems or when you need anything. So we had no problems even though we speak no spanish. We felt very welcome.

In the valley you can go hiking or mountainbiking and the Sierra Nevada is also nearby to explore nature.

We will come back :)

We very very appreciated their kindness.

Fantástico lugar!! Totalmente recomendable.

  • 5 of 5

Hemos disfrutado muchísimo de la estancia! Unas vistas increibles del valle Lecrin y del pueblo de Albuñuelas desde el porche de la casa, en el que hemos podido desayunar, comer y cenar muy a gusto. Ver las estrellas desde este lugar no tiene precio, como bañarse en una piscina con agua de rio teniendo como escaparate las montañas. Las dueñas del cortijo Charo y Rose Mary encantadoras!! Gracias por vuestra amabilidad y por vuestro recibimiento, nos hemos sentido como en nuestra casa. Hemos disfrutado también muchisimo de vuestros labradores Pisco y Chino, dificil encontrar dos perros tan amorosos, nos han enamorado.

Un lugar perfecto para descansar y relajarse en la sierra, a 40m de Sierra Nevada, y de la playa, y a no más de media hora de Granada.

The Cortijillo is in the village of Albunuelas (732 m) situated in front of the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range in the Valley Lecrin, a crossroads of history loaded midway between Granada and the Mediterranean coast and the gateway to the Alpujarra . It crosses the river Albunuelas and is surrounded by orchards and olive groves, orange and almond. Your saw, very close, strong and sharp, full of pine trees and wild herbs, and crossed by ravines that lead to spectacular views.

The Cortijillo is 30 minutes from Granada on the one hand and the beaches of Motril and Salobreña on the other. Sierra Nevada is located just 45 minutes. Albunuelas Lecrin Valley and generally offer excellent opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, cycling, adventure sports and paragliding. It also offers the possibility of wine tasting in a nearby winery and tasting extra virgin olive oil to taste at Cortijo, among others, our own oil.
