Albunuelas, Andalusia, Spain
Additional Location Information
If you wish to explore Andalusia, this is an excellent location. The property is within easy reach of the bays and beaches of the Costa Tropical, which is not overbuilt or too crowded, the beautiful Alpujarras, the Sierra Nevada and the historical city of Granada. Granada Airport is 40 minutes away and Malaga airport is an easy drive of less than two hours through spectacular scenery.
The village of Albuñuelas is picturesque, overlooking the Rio Santo gorge. There are many lovely walks along and around the valley, which is surrounded by orange, lemon and olive groves giving it a lush green appearance all the year round. The village has narrow streets and an attractive church. There are three shops, a bank, a pharmacy and medical centre, and it is visited by bread and fish vans daily from which you can purchase fresh goods. The village has four tapas bars and a simple restaurant. You can find other restaurants in the nearby villages of Melegis and Restobal.
The Lecrin valley has been described in the UK Independent newspaper as one of the loveliest locations in Southern Spain. American Vogue described it as the "new Tuscany", and it offers a window on traditional Spain while still offering everything the holidaymaker needs.
Depending on the season, there are fantastic walks, horse riding, and cycling in the valley and beaches, water parks, golf, water sports and skiing nearby. See our website for information about Spanish lessons, tapas tours of Granada, tours of the Albaicin, wine and food tasting of local specialties, walking trips, cycle tours, rock climbing, paragliding or courses in painting, cookery, flamenco, chef services or one-off meals for special occasions.
