Cortijo la Viñuela, described by many visitors as "a little paradise", is a 300 year old rural but very elegant Spanish farmhouse recently refurbished and tastefully restored to combine real comfort and true Alpujarran features. It is a unique property full of charm and character, where guests like to return for the tranquillity and unspoilt views it has to offer. Situated on the border of the Sierra Nevada National Park , at an altitude of 1150m, the 2 acres of lush terraced grounds provide an oasis of shade and greenery in the summer. It is within easy walking distance from the 7 Moorish villages of la Taha de Pitres and a crisscross network of country paths, making it an ideal base for exploring the summits or the valleys of this striking area. The self catering accommodation consists of:

  • a 65m2 casita for 2/4 + child,
  • an adjoining but independent 30m2 Studio for 2 and,
  • within the old Cortijo, a 85m2 "Cuadra" apartment for 2/4. 

Facilities:

  • Exterior: garden & pool furniture, barbecues, sheltered parking
  • Interior: Central heating, fireplaces/glazed woodstoves, broadband internet for laptop in "Cuadra", T.V. radio-CD, washing machine for Studio and Casita, fully equipped kitchens, all linen provided
  • Languages spoken: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese
  • Owner on site for providing local info.
  • Situation: South facing. Very good access from main road via concrete drive, easy walking distance from main village with all resources (Pitres). Granada and Costa Tropical 1h15mns

Strong points of La Viñuela:

  • A lot of water in the summer: waterfalls, pond and 9x5m private swimming pool equipped with a salt chlorinator and a PH controller, which makes it a real delight for the eyes, hair and skin.
  • * Quality accommodation featured in El Pais Viajero 29/9/07 for their supplement on the Alpujarra.
  • Each unit designed to provide independent access and privacy, with its own gardens and terraces.
