Cortijo Tierra y Nieve, the jewel in the crown of the High Alpujarras in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Where there exists a splendid mountain cortijo with a beautiful, three story house of traditional Alpujarranean charm. The house consists of three double bedrooms (two en suite); three bathrooms; an open plan kitchen, dinning room & lounge; and a large swimming pool. The cortijo offers its guests fruit and vegetables from its bounteous organic garden and pure spring water from its fountains. The quaint Moorish town of Capileira is just over a km away and offers excellent restaurants, tapas bars, traditional shops and other amenities. From Capileira one can explore the other hillside towns and villages or trek up to the Mulhacen the highest peak of the Iberian peninsular. Whilst most other destinations in Spain endure sweltering summer heat the High Alpujarras remain pleasantly warm. So for a quiet, relaxing, retreat in this spectacular setting, rustic but with modern conveniences - Tierra y Nieve is your obvious choice.

With spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada mountains (highest mountains in mainland Spain) and the Mediterranean, the Poqueira Gorge is one of the most dramatic features of the Alpujarras, with superb mountain country for walking, horse-trekking, mountain biking, paragliding, canyon and rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, archery, bird watching or simply relaxing. Spanish language, painting and flamenco classes can also be arranged. Qualified guides can be arranged for all of these pursuits and maps are available in the cortijo

These three beautiful white washed villages stand out as some of Spain's most picturesque places to visit. Still very Spanish with a selection of fine and local cuisine, shops and excellent bases to explore Las Alpujarras. Pampaneira is probably the most touristy of the three as it is the first to come to when travelling from Granada or the coast. Bubión sits in the middle and is a little quieter and Capileira is the highest with probably the best selection of restaurants and also the ideal base for walking the high sierras. Cortijo Teirra y Nieve sits at 1640 metres just above the village of Capileira
