About this location
The Andalucia region
The Lecrin Valley is perfectly localted to enjoy a mountain, beach and city break all in one holiday. It is an area of contrasts - you can ski in the Sierra Nevada in the morning (50 mins drive from the house) and then enjoy lunch on the beach! Alternatively, if you are simply looking for somewhere to get away from it all then this is the wonderful location. Life in the Lecrin Valley is very laid back and provides an insight into traditional Spanish village life. No trip to the area would be completed without a visit to the Alhambra Palace in Granada (booking advised).
The elevated position of Pinos del Valle means that it provides respite from the stifling heat of the city in the height of the summer. The traditional design of the house and tiled floors help to keep the house cools (portable fans also provided). We also have full central heating for the few months of the year when temperatures are a little cooler.
Pinos del Valle
The house is well located for easy access to the Motril/Granada motorway, and to be able gets easy access to the motorways heading in the direction of Madrid, and Murcia/Costa Blanca. The wonderful city of Granada is a c.25 min drive. The beautiful Alpujarras and the traditional spa town of Lanjaron can be reached in 20 minutes, with Orgiva a further 10 mins away. Beaches can be reached within 20-25 minutes.
The village of Pinos del Valle has 2 supermarkets which will supply your basic needs (including meat and fresh veg), a baker, a bank and pharmacy - all within 3-4 minutes' walk from the house. A larger Mercadona supermarket is 10 mins away (Durcal/Niguelas junction) with a great fish counter and Carrefour Hypermarket and El Corte Ingles department store can be found in Granada city. The village also has a couple of bars including Bar Venecia (3 mins from the house) with its large terrace and mountain views where you can experience the Granada tradition of free tapa with every drink (it is very easy do away with the need for a meal by simply enjoying a few glasses of wine and tapa).
There are no restaurants in the village but restaurants can be found in the surrounding villages within 10 min drive, or further afield in Durcal or Lanjaron. However, with such stunning views from the house and a well equipped kitchen, it is a pleasure to cook and eat at home.
There is plenty to do in the local area with walking on the doorstep. Other activities include: cycling, bird watching, sightseeing (particularly in Granada), skiing, swimming, the beach and horse riding.
