About the home
La Amapola apartment is fully equipped for self-catering and has been lovingly restored and finished to a high standard. This apartment has the living area and shower room with WC on the ground floor with the 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor. The open plan kitchen and lounge area turn a very rustic building in to a modern feeling home whilst maintaining features like the slate floors, stone walls and wooden beams in keeping with the building. There is a double and a twin bedroom, large living area with wood burning stove, kitchen and a shower room with WC. It also benefits from it's own private walled patio with grape vines providing shade for those hot summer days over part of the patio.
La Amapola along with La Mariposa is part of Molino Felix, a historic mill located alongside the river Gor on the doorstep of the Sierra de Baza. Within easy access to the A92N you will be perfectly situated for exploring this beautiful region of Andalucia. Whether it be an adventure holiday, a relaxing get-away or even looking for your dream home, Molino Felix is the ideal place to stay. It's just a 3 minute walk to the quiet Spanish village of Gor where the locals are friendly and the tapas are always superb!
The Sierra de Baza National Park is fantastic for wildlife lovers, with unique pine trees and vast array of birds. There is a visitors centre with information about walking trails and mountain bike routes to follow. Within the surrounding areas there are plenty of different types of adventurous activities such as go karting, quad biking, skiing and water sports on the nearby freshwater lake etc. We will be happy to help arrange any day trips you might like to enjoy.

The Andalucia / Granada Province region
Granada's Alhambra palace is a must see which was shortlisted one of the new wonders of the world and is only 45 mins drive with the Sierra Nevada Ski Resort 90 mins. Almeria coast is about 60 mins however the stunning freshwater Lake Negretin is only 20 mins which is just spectacular to see plus swimming in freshwater is a whole new experience. There are thermal spring baths and 4 restaurants dotted around the lake where you can relax. You can also hire canoes to explore the lake's untouched beauty or even paraglide to get a bird's eye view.
You can enjoy the splendid untouched beaches of the Cabo de Gato nature reserve one of Spain's best kept secrets and the quiet fishing villages. Or act out your childhood dreams by visiting the Spaghetti Western filming location towards Almeria where there is a western theme park with live shows in the mockup wild west town. There's something for everyone, whatever your passion.
The Baza area
Gor is usually a quiet little mountain village, however starting the 6th of August are the typical Andalusian fiestas with bull runs on the 8th,9th & 10th. The surrounding towns of Baza and Guadix have all you could need in terms of shops, bars and restaurants, also the Cathedral and cave house region of Guadix are particularly worth a visit. The towns have their own fiestas which highlight in the 'Cascamoras' a tradition which started with the towns fighting for possession of the statue of the Virgen back in the middle ages!
For a change of landscape the stunning Castril gorge walk along a wooden walkway pinned to the side of the gorge with the river below, is highly recommended. There are a variety of activities around the surrounding areas including Go-Karting, Horseriding, Paragliding, Canoeing, Fishing, Quadbiking, Walking and Mountain Bike Trails and we mustn't forget the Turkish Baths with relaxation massages.

We visited a year ago and stayed in the sister apartment La Mariposa. The La Amapola is as comfortable, cosy and as well finished as the La Mariposa apartment so if one isn't available... more

La Amapola exceeded our expectations and was the perfect spot to spend our honeymoon! We enjoyed having a fully-serviced kitchen to prepare our own meals and loved having a private patio (partially shaded with grape vines) to enjoy our meals, a glass of wine, and a good book. The grocery store, bakery, butcher shop, and pubs in Gor (a 5 minute walk) had everything that we needed. With quick access to the highway, trips to Granada and the ocean were easy. Local attractions, such as Lake Negratin, are also must-sees. Marc and Sam are wonderful hosts -- always friendly, very knowledgeable about the local area, and eager to involve guests in cultural activities. Great value!
