The Andalucia region
Granada province is characterised by extreme variables in landscape and climate, so much so that it's possible to ski in the mountains and go diving in the sea in one day. When you've exhausted the magnificent city of Granada, there are countless other possibilities: from going underground in cave dwellings in a desolate desert-like area, climbing the Iberian Peninsula's highest mountains or losing yourself in the region's rich Moorish history and fortified palaces.
With its spectacular backdrop of the Sierra Nevada's snowy peaks, the provincial capital of Granada is dominated by the magnificent Alhambra Palace, an exquisitely designed and decorated Moorish palace that exemplifies the zenith of Muslim art and architecture. But don't miss Granada's other fascinating sights, such as the winding, narrow streets of the Moorish quarter, the Albacín, the impressive Gothic chapel - the Capilla Real - that houses the tombs of the Catholic Monarchs and the adjacent Renaissance cathedral, as well as numerous great bars offering free tapas.
The Sierra Nevada mountains are the second highest mountain range in Europe, the Sierra Nevada National Park is an uninhabited rugged wilderness with snow on its peaks for most of the year. It also has Europe's most southerly ski resort and has some superb climbing and mountaineering opportunities.
The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are known as the Alpujarras, a region of beautiful whitewashed villages, with distinctive Berber architecture, set in attractive valleys and terraced fields. It's excellent hiking territory, especially if you're willing to strike off into the hills with a tent. Some of the villages in Las Alpujarras that are worth visiting include Bubíon, Capileira, Lanjarón, Órgiva Pampaneira, Travélez, Yegen, and Valor.
Granada's coastline is known as the Costa Tropical because of its high year-round temperatures. Augmented by excellent crop irrigation from the snowmelt of the Sierra Nevada, this tropical climate creates the perfect growing conditions for sugar cane, avocados and fruit that are usually found in more southern climes.
The Costa Tropical of Granada province is particularly picturesque beachside, and easier to get away from the crowds than its neighbour The Costa del Sol.
The mountains run right down to the sea and the coastline is typically a series of coves and promontories.
Almunecar is situated on the Costa tropical which has a micro-climate with sunshine all year. Almunecar town is situated beside the sea with mountains all around. It has a handsome Moorish castle sitting above the town between the mouths of two rivers. Almunecar has managed to retain the atmosphere and character of an old Spanish town with winding narrow streets and tapas bars. To the west of Almunecar is the Punta de la Mona, a pine clad headland sheltering the attractive Marina del Este which is an attractive Marina with interesting shops and several restaurants situated immediately beside the water. There is a range of water sports here including scuba diving, thanks to the variety of sea life and the clarity of the water. Beyond is the pretty horse shoe bay of La Herradura. Along the coastline are numerous beaches and sheltered coves. To the east is the whitewashed village of Salobrena with the peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background. The Sierra Nevada mountains are approximately one hour away, where during the winter months you can ski.

"Tired, dirty and need of refurbishment. Never again."
The villa is in a stunning location and initially would have been as described , however , due to lack of investment the villa is in great need of refurbishment even to the point of numerous light bul… More
Fortunately, most people have had a lovely time staying in the villa but it is very disappointing to receive this review. Unfortunately, the person who wrote this review still owes us a considerable amount of money which he was supposed to pay on arrival at the villa. Instead of paying us, he actually asked for 'compensation' or he would print this review. Looking at the photographs, we are a little puzzled as we had just paid to have the villa repainted, inside and out, and our property managers make sure the villa is cleaned thoroughly before people move in and they confirmed that the villa was totally clean and everything was fine for this rental. Fortunately, on the same date that this person left the villa, the villa was rented by someone who has stayed in the villa every year for the last 4 years and they kindly also wrote a review. Please can we ask you to read their review. Thank you.
