The Andalucia region
Güejar Sierra is a small mountain town perched in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, which preserves the traditional mountain architecture of the region at its heart. It is skirted by the crystal clear waters of the River Genil and perched in a dramatic position on the slopes of the Cerro del Calar - with panoramic views of the rugged mountains just at the point where they dip their toes into the beautiful Canales reservoir. Guejar is the departure point for the main footpaths of medium and high mountain ascent into the Sierra Nevada, such as the world famous Vereda de la Estrella (Path of the Star). The surroundings offer the visitor great natural beauty; chestnut forests; old quarries of green jasper and the historic remains of an old tramway which used to wind its way up the Sierra Nevada from Granada. Two of the attractive old stone tram stops in Maitena and El Charcon have been converted in to lovely restaurants on the banks of the Genil, where the fresh waters are great for a cool off in summer time. The Canales reservoir also offers a variety of water based activities.
Güejar has a good choice of interesting tapas bars and great restaurants both within the town itself and in the surrounding area. Many of the restaurants have summer terraces where you can eat and enjoy breathtaking views at the same time and some also have summer pools. Or if you want to visit the beach during your stay, the Costa Tropical is just 45 minutes away.
Sierra Nevada National Park
Casa San Tomas is a perfect base for exploring the beautiful Sierra Nevada National Park and also the stunning city of Granada. Güejar is just a 20 minute drive from Pradollano - the Sierra Nevada ski resort. The resort is also known as "Sol y Nieve" (Sun and Snow) and historically enjoys great Spring snow conditions. While skiing is great in the Sierra Nevada and the views of Africa from the top are spectacular, the resort itself was built relatively recently. Staying in Güejar offers the unique opportunity to sample the skiing of the Sierra Nevada while at the same time enjoying the experience of living in a traditional Spanish village. It is also a great centre for mountain sports, family and adventure activities. There is freshwater fishing on the lake, less than 5 minutes from the house. This is an ideal base for mountain biking, walks of all levels, ice/rock climbing, canoeing, rafting, paragliding, horse-riding etc. There is also a nearby water parks in Cenes de la Vega on the road to Granada.
However, no trip to the area would be complete without a visit to the spectacular Alhambra Palace and the historic architecture of Granada itself. The city can be reached inside 15 minutes whilst the Alhambra is just 20 minutes away. If you don't fancy driving, Guejar is served by a remarkably regular and inexpensive bus service.
A mere 15 minutes drive to the city centre (or take the bus leaving every 40 minutes) giving you the benefits of being close enough to explore the fabulous Alhambra and the old quarter of the Albaycin, whilst at the same time allowing you to escape the heat and retreat to the calm and tranquility of beautiful Guejar.

"Great Romantic Ski Break"
Having stayed at this property in the summer we decided to return for a short ski break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The village is an easy drive from Malaga with great directions provided by… More
Many thanks for your kind words. We were delighted to welcome you back for your 20th Wedding Anniversary and are glad you enjoyed the Champagne and chocolates. We are always happy to help out with any requests for special occasion extras where we can! Your comments about the ski resort are spot on. Prices are much cheaper than in the resorts in the Alps and the queues for the lifts are generally much shorter. From the beginning of March we will indeed have a hot tub at the house and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Matt and Mel.

Thank you for your kind comments. Christmas is a very special time of year in the village and there is such a wonderful festive atmosphere. There cannot be a better way to spend Christmas Day than in front of a roaring log fire. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Mel and Matt

"Beautiful House, Perfect Location. Fantastic Skiing"
Just completed our first stay at Casa San Tomas for a long weekend of Skiing. From start to finish nothing was too much trouble. The house is superbly furnished and very comfortable. Directions and i… More
Many thanks for your kind words. We are delighted that you had such a great weekend. Guejar is indeed a typical whitewashed Andalucian village in every way. The lack of tourism is part of the charm. We spend a lot of time researching bars, restaurants and information on the local area and glad you found the guest folder useful. The close proximity to the ski resort makes the village a perfect (and much less expensive) place to stay. We hope to welcome you and your friends back again in the future. Thanks Mel and Matt.

Myself, Girlfriend, baby & 2 of our friends stayed here in December. Gorgeous place & Great location. Only 15 minute drive from Sierra Nevada, Beautiful views. The house was immaculate very cosy & loads we had loads of fun throughout stay Locals were all very friendly. Hoping to stay there again in the near future.
Many thanks for your kind words about our home. The presentation and high standards within the house are very important to us and we are glad you found everything to be immaculate. Yes the close proximity to the ski resort makes Guejar a much more affordable and friendly place to stay. Great bars and restaurants within walking distance of the house, together with much more reasonably priced ski hire are the main reasons why we chose to own a home there. We would of course love to welcome you all back again in the future. Thanks Mel and Matt.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are delighted that you chose to spend the New Year in Guejar and had such a wonderful time. Yes we agree the Tapas is rather good and plentiful! We have designed the house with families in mind and of course would love to welcome you and your family back again in the future. With the ski resort so close you can hopefully enjoy some skiing next time. Thanks again Mel and Matt.

"Todo lujo de detalles, genial"
Hemos pasado en la casa el puente de diciembre, dos parejas con dos niños. La casa genial, no le faltaba un detalle. Todo nuevo y muy cómodo . Es cierto todo lo que pone en las características de la casa. Gran patio trasero con barbacoa (aunque no lo usamos), mesa de pin pong en el garaje, ...aunque nosotros lo que más disfrutamos fue la chimenea, ..genial el gym tónic delante de ella , podías elegir... cómodo sofá o cálida alfombra...bien situada en el pueblo, una calle abajo y en pocos minutos en la plaza del pueblo..donde hay bares estupendos para tapear...recomiendo Encapaco (grandes y variadas tapas..y chimenea ) El entorno muy bonito y con muchas posibilidades, rutas, Sierra Nevada,Alhambra,..en definitiva una maravilla...para repetir... Además nos devolvieron muy pronto el depósito de daños (una semana) Gracias Mel, Rosie y Anita...esperamos volver pronto
Estamos muy contentos de que usted ha tenido un rato agradable en nuestra casa. Si, la chimenea es sin duda una maravillosa característica en esta tiempo del año!! Acuerdo sobre la evaluación de Encapaco; muy bienes tapas allí todo el año. Gracias de nuevo por eligir nuestra casa y esperamos volver a darle la bienvenida pronto de nuevo.

Many thanks for your wonderful review of our home Casa San Tomas. We are so pleased you enjoyed your 2 week holiday and made such good use of the pool and garden. We agree that the courtyard garden comes alive in the summer and is a perfect oasis to relax. The bars and restaurants in the village serve superb food and Tapas and we will pass on your comments to Felix's about their Sangria! We hope to welcome you back again soon. Mel and Matt.

"A gem of a property for a super chilled break."
If you are looking for somewhere just to relax and re-charge, this is the place. House was larger than it looks in the pictures and secluded little garden was a god send. House is beautifully furnishe… More
Thank you for your lovely comments about Casa San Tomas. We take a huge amount of pride in the appearance of our house and are delighted you found it to be immaculate. It is equally nice to know how much you enjoyed Guejar. It is indeed a beautiful village with lovely bars and restaurants. The local people are always so welcoming and I think that contributes to the overall feel of the village. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Mel and Matt.
