Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12

Please note it has FROM ONE TO 6 BEDROOMS.

Casa Aloe is located on the very edge of the ancient village of Atalbeitar, one of a collection of seven white-washed, moorish villages that make up La Taha of the Alpujarras, a south-facing valley on the slopes of Mulhacen, the highest mountain in Spain, the house is situated minutes from the Sierra Nevada National Park.

The village has ancient donkey lanes that make it a car-free village, peaceful and safe for children.

The house has been recently restored using traditional materials in original ways, with beauty and comfort in mind.
Chestnut beams, bedrock corners and many unique touches give it a rustic charm.

We, Tom and Carmen ( the owners) are both artists, and have delighted in creating a space that is simple but harmonious. We have spent the last 7 winters restoring it with all our love and care, and so we are very happy when people come to enjoy our work.
This winter we have built a swimming pool, at last! and it is heated in the colder months. The system we use to purify the water is is sand and salt, so your skin and eyes will be kindly treated here. It has also a hydromassage and swimming against the current system so that you can exercise and feel revitalised and restored.
There is also an interior patio, shady and plant-filled to escape the heat of the midday summer sun, where there is a Barbecue available for your use.
As well as two large terraces with spectacular views, the main one is totally baby, toddler and child proof. Super safe as we now have a toddler ourselves!
And speaking of children, we have toys for them too, like a trycicle! as the village is car free you can enjoy giving them rides through all the exciting laberynthical streets...

Get cosy beside the open fire, eat out on the terrace under the pergola with the untouched valley beneath you, explore our selection of games, or just relax and read a book.
But we also have television with many channels and you can watch all programs and films in the original language.
A DVD player is available too.
And we have internet too if you need to catch up with your life.

Enjoy the cultural experience of an Andalucian village, whilst having the peace and quiet of a rural retreat if you so wish.

It makes an ideal holiday base for lovers of beauty and nature, popular amongst artists and walkers, and it´s proximity to the Sierra Nevada National park, offers a whole range of outdoors activities in a stunning location.

We can help you organise horse-riding for novices or fully-experienced (or both together), tennis or point you in the right direction for unforgettable walks with incredible views.
There are in the house as well as other suggestions a collection of maps with exciting detailed walks via the moorish paths.

In the evenings explore the variety of restaurants and bars in La Taha, where the tradition is to give a free Tapa with every drink, and where often you can catch an evening of local music.
