Location & area

Casa Esquina has a great little supermarket 3 doors down. Five minutes away, the centre of Alhama has banks, shops, bars and restaurants. There's a busy market with local crafts, fruit, veg, plants, flowers, clothes, etc every Friday. There's a couple of outdoor swimming pools located close by and swimming holes in the local river. Also, the swimming in beautiful Lake Bermejales is fantastic.



Alhama de Granada, in the fertile heart of the Poniente Granadino in Southern Andalucia, is the perfect holiday destination. The town of Alhama offers history dating from Roman times through Moorish reign and up to modern days. Alhama is very attractive, traditional, bustling and precariously positioned running along the edge of an enormous limestone gorge, Los Tajos. Along the bottom of the gorge run the Rios Alhama and Merchan. Nearby, hot springs gurgle into four thermal pools next to the Rio Merchan. The town has grand, imposing Medieval architecture and lively bars surrounding attractive squares. Surrounding Alhama are soft, pastel shaded rolling hills, attractive small villages and stunning views extending to looming mountain ranges.



Alhama is perfectly situated, close enough for: an easy day or weekend trip to the splendid cities of Granada and Malaga; the sea air of the attractive seaside towns of Nerja and Almunecar; and the striking and exhilarating mountain regions of the Sierra Nevada and the Sierras Alhama, Tejeda and Almijara which offer great walking and wintersports.



Everywhere you look the view stretches as far as the eye can see and takes in gentle hills, green valleys and craggy moonscape mountain peaks. The Natural Park of the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama offer secluded picnic areas, usually next to a river or lake, and lovely walks. For hiking, the peak of La Maroma is at 2,080m and offers year round snow in chasms at the summit and wonderful views of the area.



We are one hour's drive from Torre del Mar and one hour 10 mins from Malaga.



The Costa Tropical is one hour's drive where you can visit the historical seaside towns of Nerja, La Herradura and Almunecar. All the usual water sports including wind-surfing, sailing, para-gliding and scuba diving are very popular from La Herradura in particular. The towns are attractive and have traditional architecture, old barrios with flower laden balconies and twisting cobbled lanes, and lots of restaurants.



There are golf courses in Granada (only 40 minutes away) and, of course, loads on the coast. The Sierra Nevada mountain range is only 1 hour 20 mins drive away. Easy, attractive drive brings you to this popular resort. From December to April you can enjoy fantastic skiing and snowboarding in the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountain range. The resort, called "Solynieve", is very pretty and good to visit even if you don't ski, etc. There's a wide choice of runs for all levels; tuition and equipment hire also available.



You can easily avoid the weekend queues at the slopes by driving up from Alhama during the working week; ski all day and be back in Alhama in plenty of time for dinner. The Sierra Nevada National Park is also fabulous all year round for walking and cycling and only one and a half hour's drive from Alhama.



We can put you in touch with local people providing activity holidays centred around: horse riding, walking/hiking, cycling and photograpy.
