The Andalucia region

The Valley of Lecrin is a startlingly beautiful area which occupies one of the most privileged positions in Spain. The area itself is midway between the Costa Tropical, famous for its verdant cultivation of exotic fruits and sugar cane, and the beautiful unspoilt beaches of the coast and the city of Granada, home to the Alhambra and the Albaicin, Spain´s most potent historic attractions.

So much history abounds around the city of Granada that it would be impossible to tell all here. Home to the last empire of Spain´s Moorish era, Granada was finally taken by Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492 after more than 700 years of Moorish civilisation, which shaped the city and the area for ever.

All of Granada's attractions are within easy reach of the house, as are the various beaches and resorts of the Costa Tropical. Last but not least, the south facing villages of the Sierra Nevada are also a short drive away. This area, known as the Alpujarra, has been written about by Gerald Brenan ("South from Granada") and Chris Stewart ("Driving Over Lemons").

Granada is the capital of the province with the same name, situated in the eastern part of the region of Andalusia. Geographical and scenic diversity characterises the land. There is the coastal area with its warm climate; the extensive, fertile Genil plain; and the mountainous regions with a colder climate, where we find the 3,481 meter Mulhacén, the biggest peak on the peninsula of Spain. The city of Granada is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains at the confluences of the Darro and Genil rivers. Its unique history has bestowed it with an artistic grandeur embracing Moorish palaces and Christian Renaissance treasures. As the last Moorish capital on the Iberian peninsula, it also holds great symbolic value.

The Moors crossed the strait of Gibraltar in 711 and settled in what was then a small Visigoth town perched atop the Alhambra hill. Here they settled, erected walls and laid the foundation for the prosperous civilization that would follow. It was in the 9th century when Granada rose to importance after the fall of the Caliphate of Córdoba. Its splendor was reached in 1238, when Mohammed ben Nasar founded the Nasrid dynasty, and the kingdom of Granada stretched from Gibraltar to Murcia. This dynasty bore twenty kings until King Boabdil was forced to surrender Granada to the Catholic monarchs, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, in 1492. During three centuries, a magnificent and rich Islamic culture flourished, leaving Granada with architectural marvels of the infamous Alhambra, declared a World Heritage Site, along with the Generalife and the Albaicín.

With the opening of the new motorway the Lecrin Valley is only an hours drive away by car from Malaga Airport and the route will take you along some of Spain's most stunning coastline.

Pinos del Valle

Pinos Del Valle is a beautiful picturesque Spanish village which lies in the heart of the Lecrin Valley ( commonly known as the Valley of Happiness). While only 7 minutes drive from the main autovia it is centrally situated between Granada with the infamous Alhambra and the stunning coastline of the Costa Tropical Resorts each only being a 30 minute drive each way.

The Lecrin Valley itself is virtually unspoilt and has plently of lemon, orange and almond trees for you to pick and enjoy at your leisure.

There are several other villages which make-up the Lecrin Valley such as Restabal, Melegis, Niguelas and Chite all are unique and well worth a visit and where you will find several very good Spanish Restaurants and Tapa's Bars.

The village itself has 1 bank, 3 supermarkets, 2 restaurant/bars, 1 pharmacy.

There are plenty of area's to explore while walking, hiking and or biking
