The Andalucia region
Guejar Sierra is a typically traditional white washed Spanish mountain village in the Sierra Nevada range and situated at over 1000 metres. It is an ideal holiday location if you like beautiful surroundings and fresh mountain air. There are a few excellent restaurants and bars to enjoy the views from and sample the delicious local cuisine and wine. The population is small (less than 3000) however, there are all the necessary amenities that you would require to make your visit enjoyable. Located in the village are a couple of convenience stores which stock all the basics you would need. There are specialist meat, fish and bakery shops as well as a bank and pharmacy. The town itself is typically Spanish and has an abundance of charm and character. It would be quite easy to spend your time moving from one tapas bar to the next enjoying the local cuisine and wine. There are many narrow cobbled streets to explore which have character buildings draped in flowers. There are many walks that commence from the town into the Sierra Nevada national park. There are a number of activities that are available in Guejar Sierra including hiking, swimming, climbing, canoeing, skiing and biking. The La Vuelta (Spanish version of the Tour de France) had one of its stages through Guejar SIerra in 2013. Any of these activities can be arranged for your visit.
The city centre of Granada can be reached in 20 minutes. It is a beautiful city with an abundance of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. You can take a bus directly from the village square to Granada which only costs approximately 1 euro. A great option if you wish to sample the wines at the tapas bars whilst you are visiting the city centre. No holiday to Granada would be complete without visiting the Alhambra Palace. The Palace was the stunning home of the Nasrid Kings which dates back to 1238. It is situated within stunning gardens which need to be seen to be believed.
Sierra Nevada National Park
Guejar Sierra is situated within the Sierra Nevada national park. It is only 20 minutes from Sierra Nevada ski resort. Sierra Nevada defies many concepts associated with skiing. Located barely a stones throw from the Mediterranean coast, it has practically guaranteed sunshine, the best spring snow conditions in Europe and is still reasonably priced compared to many of its European counterparts. As one of Europe's highest resorts it has a surprisingly long season and traditionally opens at the end of November running through to May. Sierra Nevada, which means "Snowy Mountain Range", includes some of the highest peaks in Europe not to mention the highest concentration of peaks over 3,000m in the country. An important factor that very few resorts are able to boast of, is that you are practically guaranteed sunshine throughout your stay! Being so far south the climate is superb for brushing up on the deepest ski tan you are likely to get anywhere!! Visitors are always stunned at how the snow lasts during the typically deep blue skied, sun blazoned days.
Guejar Sierra is only 50 minutes from the Costa Tropical which has many beaches. There are quiet coves perfect for relaxing or larger beaches with watersports, children's parks and toilet/shower facilities. Something for everyone.
