Overview

About the property

El Mirador de la Habana is an Andalusian house located in the heart of Lecrín Valley in Granada. Albuñuelas is a village surrounded by orange, lemon and almond trees. Its privileged location allows you to be less than 35 minutes from the beach and the centre of Granada and is also close to the Alpujarras and the skiing lopes of the Sierra Nevada.

Located in this strategic spot, El Mirador de La Habana is an ideal starting point in Andalusia to explore all corners of the region within a few minutes reach, beach, mountain, golf and city.

This is a home catering for 4 people (also available for two) and fully equipped, it is located in the traditional quarter of Habana in Albuñuelas on a lookout over the gorge where you can hear the water of the river Santo flowing as you contemplate the Sierra Nevada from the viewpoint or from our beautiful terrace.

In this region of Andalusia, south of Granada, which the Moors called the Valley of Joy, you'll find yourself surrounded by orange and lemon trees, almond trees, cacti and olive trees as you travel through whitewashed villages steeped in history and rich in culture and countryside.

Stroll through Saleres, Acequias and Conchar, enjoy the views on the lake Béznar from Pinos del Valle, Béznar and Chite, you can visit restored olive oil old mills in acequias and nigüelas and in the whole area you will find remains of moorish castles whitewashed farmhouses, ancient moorish water irrigation channels, moorish water tanks, rivers and gorges through beautiful countryside where there is the constant sound of flowing water.

If you visit in spring you can see almond and orange blossom and smell the perfume of orange blossom while you contemplate the white peaks of Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Also, in the valley you can do everything possible that comes to mind, quiet walks through the villages , go skiing in the sierra nevada ski resort, golf at santa clara, routes through the alpujarras, gastronomic and oenological tourism, and since it is midway between the capital and the coast, you can spend a pleasant morning on the beach and then go to visit the alhambra or have a tapas evening in Granada.

It is also a perfect area for walking trails at all levels and if you like adventure tourism will not be lacking options for mountain biking, quad, horse riding, canoeing, climbing, etc.

And if you need a session of relaxation, the spa of Lanjaron is half an hour.

Notes:
El Mirador de la Habana is an antique building in Andalusia dating back to 1900 and has been completely renovated in 2008. In its renovation we have tried to keep all the original features possible to preserve the rural character of the building, such as trusses, stone blocks, niches, cabinets, etc. However, we have not forsaken the modern day comforts to make your stay in the Lecrin Valley unforgettable, obtaining a house in which modern day life is not incompatible with tradition. The things that no longer could be kept have been replaced by similar ones that are old and recovered from other houses and farms in the area, such as gates, railings and tiles, carefully chosen in style of the region of Granada. In the decoration of El Mirador de la Habana simplicity prevails, recovered and restored furniture and the typical white of the Andalusian houses. The materials used are sustainable, clay, iron, stone and wood and provide natural tones to the rooms.

Ideal getaway for lovers / Una escapada ideal

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway in a peaceful environment in southern Spain then this lovely cottage is an excellent choice. Set among the citrus groves in the Lecrín Valley, Albuñuelas is a sleepy little village with views of the Sierra Nevada. We stayed there for almost a month in November and December 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed it even during autumn weather. We wandered the streets in town, took a horseback ride through the olive groves, and even spent a few evenings in the local pub. The highlight, however, was the charming Casa Mirador de la Habana itself. Jorge was a great host who made sure everything was in working order. I could go on and on about the cute kitchen, the cozy bedrooms, or the rooftop terrace for sunny days but really there is only one thing that you need to know—there is a real wood-burning fireplace in the living room that creates an unforgettable sense of warmth and well-being on chilly nights at home. It is perfect for lovers who want to escape from the everyday cares of life and just enjoy each other. I highly recommend it, and we look forward to returning someday.

Si usted está buscando una escapada relajante en un entorno tranquilo en el sur de España, entonces esta hermosa casa de campo es una excelente elección. Situado dentro de las plantaciones de cítricos en el Valle de Lecrín, Albuñuelas es un pequeño pueblo tranquilo con vistas a la Sierra Nevada. Nos quedamos allí durante casi un mes en noviembre y diciembre de 2016 y lo disfrutamos incluso durante el tiempo de otoño. Recorrimos las calles de la ciudad, tomamos un paseo a caballo a través de los olivares y aún pasamos unas cuantas noches en el bar local. Lo más destacado, sin embargo, fue la bonita Casa Mirador de la Habana en sí. Jorge fue un gran anfitrión que hizo que todo estaba en orden. Yo podría contarles sobre la cocina placentera, el dormitorio acogedor, o la terraza para los días soleados, pero en realidad sólo hay una cosa que usted necesita saber—hay una verdadera chimenea de leña en el salón que crea una inolvidable sensación de calidez y bienestar en las noches frías en casa. Es perfecto para los enamorados que quieren escapar de las preocupaciones de la vida cotidiana y cuidarse el uno al otro. Yo lo recomiendo sin vacilación, y espero volver algún día con mi querida.

Casa muy acogedora

  • 4 of 5

Pasamos el fin de año muy bien. La casa es muy acogedora y con mucho detalle. Pedimos leña y nos habían preparado hasta las pastillas para encender el fuego. Había libros, juegos de mesa, películas antiguas. Los propietarios y una vecina encargada son muy amables y serviciales.

Estuvimos muy a gusto.

El pueblo no es muy grande, pero está bien situado para ir a la nieve, las Alpujarras, la costa, senderismo, etc.

alles perfekt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren Ende März/Anfang April zwei Wochen im Haus von Jorge (sehr freundlich) und haben nur positives zu berichten. Das Haus ist gemütlich und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Das Highlight ist die Terasse: dort hat man sowohl auf die schneebedeckten Gipfel der Sierra Nevada, als auch auf den Ort Albunuelas eine wundervolle Aussicht.

Abgesehen davon, dass das Haus schön ist, ist es natürlich auch perfekt gelegen. Sowohl nach Granada, als auch an den Strand gelangt man mit dem Auto innerhalb einer halben Stunde. Darüber hinaus kann man auch in der direkten Umgebung von Albunuelas wunderbare Ausflüge und Wanderungen machen. So beginnt im Ort selbst z.B. ein ca 8 km langer Rundwanderweg, der einfach traumhaft schön ist.

Alles in allem können wir das el mirador de la habana also bedenkenlos weiterempfehlen.

Et dejligt hus med en god beliggenhed

  • 5 of 5

Vi har boet i El Mirador de la Habana i 6 uger - og vi nød det. En af ugerne var vi 4 voksne og ellers 2 og huset fungerer fint med både 4 og 2.

Huset er charmerende og istandsat med sans for de gamle detaljer. Huset er i fin orden, og er et godt sted at være, ikke mindst når det bliver rigtig varmt. Tagterrassen med den helt fantastiske udsigt er et scoop.

VI var på mange og lange vandreture på vandrestierne og det var en helt unik oplevelse. I byens smalle men hyggelige gader sker der mere end man lige skulle tro ved første øjekast. Det er spændende at gå på opdagelse, og opdage hvad der gemmer sig bag næste hjørne eller bag en almindelig dør. Byens beboere tager venligt imod en, og de er meget hjælpsomme.

Des vacances qui donnent envie de revenir...

  • 5 of 5

Maison très agréable et idéalement située pour visiter l'Andalousie. À 40 min d'Albuñuelas, on peut déguster des sardines fraîches grillées et une "ración" de paëlla les pieds dans l'eau à Almuñécar ou se balader le soir dans Grenade et découvrir l'incroyable ambiance qui règne dans les bars.

Le village est paisible et d'un charme indéfinissable, plein de citronniers et d'orangers. La province de Grenade est très riche en découverte et visites : monuments historiques, villages pittoresques, balades et randonnées, dégustation de tapas...

Les gens sont très chaleureux et très serviable, toujours prêts à vous aider en cas de problème. Ici, on prend le temps de vivre et ça fait du bien!

Nous espérons pouvoir revenir dans cette magnifique région.

Merci encore!
