Overview

Although Agua Verde is situated in the heart of the pretty village of Albuñuelas its terraces and pool area are not overlooked by other properties. This house has been restored with a connoisseur's eye for interesting authentic and structural details. It has two spacious, comfortable bedrooms (one double, one twin), powerful showers, plenty of living space, separate indoor and outdoor dining areas and stunning views. In the right season, glossy leaved branches heavy with oranges hang over the wall of the pretty pool terrace, which also contains a shaded Moroccan seating area to escape the sun of the hottest summer months. In winter months there is a very efficient wood-burning stove to heat the downstairs kitchen and dining areas and a lovely open fireplace in the living room. The Master bedroom has its own shower room and a balcony with breathtaking views of the Sierra de Albuñuelas to wake up to. This is all in all a very well-equipped and relaxing house to stay in - the living room has a TV/DVD player as well as radio/CD player etc and the generously equipped kitchen also has a dishwasher. Car access to the door is not possible, but it is possible to park in the square close by.

Location & area

Just south of Granada, beyond the "Sigh of the Moor" pass (so called because here the last Moorish king paused on his journey into exile, and sighed for the beautiful city he had lost) lies a valley so beautiful that it was named by the Moors 'the Valley of Joy' - El Valle de Lecrin.



Here in the traditional white village of Albuñuelas, overlooking the dramatic Rio Santo gorge, is our loving restored villa - Casa de la Puerta Azul.



Albuñuelas is a unique place - the most beautiful of the villages in the Lecrin Valley, where the narrow winding streets are free from cars and troubled only by the occasional donkey winding its way back from a day's work in the orange groves. Although tranquil, this village has a restaurant, a choice of 4 tapas bars, 2 shops, a pharmacy & a Thursday morning market - and the breadman and the fishman honk their horns each morning as they wind their way through the streets selling freshly baked bread and cakes and the catch of the day straight from the Mediterranean Sea.



Epic walks start, literally, from the doorstep. The great GR7 route from Algeciras to Istanbul passes the door (the marker is on the wall of one of the houses) and there are plenty of other routes for walkers of all levels. Or, for those who prefer to ride, horse riding is available from the Upper Barrio of the village. Granada with its flamenco culture, historic buildings, lovely tapas bars and fascinating Moroccan souk is a 25 minute drive away.



The coast can be reached in 35 minutes and the ski resort in the Sierra Nevada mountains in about 45 minutes. Lanjaron - gateway to the Alpujarras (the highest villages in Spain, made famous by Chris Stewart's book 'Driving Over Lemons') lies just at the other end of the Valley - 20 mins away. The warm waters of Lake Bermjales and the hot water springs of Alhama de Granada can be reached in about 45 minutes by a beautiful drive over the Sierra de Albuñuelas. Or, for a quick dip closer at hand, there is a choice of local bars and restaurants with summer pools for the use of customers.
