About this location
The Andalucia region
There are two roads leading out of the village - both are well made although windy. The first road is to Castell de Ferro and the N340 coastal road and takes 10 minutes to get to the village. The second road is around the mountain to Motril and takes 20 minutes with some breathtaking views en-route. There is a daily bus service from the village to Motril but hiring a car is essential!
The town of Motril has plenty of shops, banks, restaurants, markets and large supermarkets for all shopping needs.
The Sierra Nevada mountain range is Spain´s highest, a magnificent backdrop to this partly undiscovered area of Spain. The area enjoys a microclimate, subtropical in character, a warm and gentle 18 degrees in winter and an average of 25 degrees in summer. The beaches are unspoilt. In the winter months you can ski in the Sierras in the morning and sunbathe on the terrace in the afternoon.
This is the old Andalucian part of Spain, complete with fiestas, whitewashed villages, Moorish castles and some of the best and least expensive food and wine to be found in Spain. The restaurants and tapas bars are very good and the fish is excellent. There is history to be found everywhere, from the Alhambra Palace in Granada to the Alpujarras region and the coastal towns of Almeria, Almuñecar, Salobreña and Nerja.
The name Gualchos derives from the Arabic occupation and means 'hidden springs'. From the mountains down to the fountains in the village, runs natural spring water. The village is nestled between the Mediterranean and The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. This region is known as the Costa Tropical, midway between Almeria and Malaga.
The whole region is enchanting and naturally diverse, its possible to sunbathe on the terrace whilst having the snow capped mountain of Mulhacen behind you. Gualchos is one of many small whitewashed villages which are scattered throughout the mountains and the region of Las Alpujarras.
The small, but friendly village lies at 1200ft above sea level in a natural enclave, shadowed by the Sierra Nevada mountain ranges and overlooks the Mediterranean. Amenities in the village are basic, but sufficient, in the village centre you will find a small supermarket (where you can by almost anything), a weekly fish market, a bar “La Plaza” and a bakery (bread is also available from the delivery man who turns up in the village each morning 'tooting' his horn). At the Plaza bar you can (by prior arrangement at lunchtime) order an evening meal which is good, inexpensive and plentiful. There is also an ice-cream parlour and a fountain where you can drink the natural spring water. The village also has a doctors surgery and a small pharmacy.
During the summer months the locals organise open air barbecues, where you can enjoy easy relaxed company and wonderful views of the Mediterranean coastline. At the opposite end of the village is a nice restaurant, "La Ventera".
On the outskirts of Gualchos there is a lovely outdoor restaurant called "Barbacoa Miguel" where food is cooked over an open fire (open in the summer months only).
