Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Albuñuelas

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.

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!

Erholsame 14 Tage in wunderschönem Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 14 Tage im Sommer in diesem außerordentlich gepflegten und süßen Haus. Das Haus liegt in einem kleinen abgeschiedenen Örtchen, wohin man auf jeden Fall ein Auto benötigt. Insgesamt ist es aber ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in ganz Andalusien. Granada als nächst gelegene Statd ist wunderschön. An der nahegelegenen Autobahn gibt es auch Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, wobei man das nötigste auch in dem Ort bekommt.

Das Haus selbst ist klein aber sehr schön. Absolutes Highlight ist die Dachterrasse mit den beiden überdachten Matratzen, die auch mal zu einem gemütlichem Urlaubstag einlädt. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und unkompliziert. In dem Ort selbst sollte man einige Brocken spanisch können, damit man sich zumindest einigermaßen verständigen kann.

Una semana fantástica.

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado una semana maravillosa, la casa es fantástica y Albuñuelas un sitio precioso para perderse. Nos vamos enamorados de Granada, el Valle de Lecrín, Lanjarón.... y nos llevamos la mochila llena de recuerdos y anécdotas para contar.

Os damos las gracias por dejarnos disfrutar de vuestra casa, la cuál es una preciosidad y está completamente equipada para que la estancia en ella sea perfecta. La terraza es una pasada, te deja sin palabras. Las vistas desde arriba son una maravilla. La verdad que ya lo echamos de menos.

Os recomendamos 100%, si tenéis la oportunidad no dejéis de visitarlos porque seguramente os encantara.

Nosotros probablemente volveremos porque nos han quedado muchas cosas por conocer y con las recomendaciones de Silvia y Jorge no podemos perdernos esa tierra con los almendros, naranjos y cerezos en flor.

Os estamos agradecidos por el trato y las indicaciones que nos distéis a la llegada para no perdernos lo más importante de Granada y los alrededores. Esperamos poder vernos pronto, merece la pena las 10 horas de viaje.

Un abrazo muy fuerte, Nazareth y David (Avilés - Asturias)

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.
