The focal point of the comfortable sitting area is the glass fronted wood burning stove, perfect for cosy winter evenings.

The Andalucia region

Andalucia is the southermost region of Spain with more than 300 days of sunshine per year. With beaches, mountains and historical cities it really does offer something for everyone.


The moorish village of Valor perches on the foothills of the Sierra Nevada gazing out over the valley and the market town of Ugijar. An unspoilt traditional Spanish village popular with spanish tourists. Situated two hours from Granada (the Alhambra Palace is truely unmissable) and one hour from the coast, culture, countryside, beaches and skiing are all within easy reach.

With a population of just under 1000, the village has 9 bars all of which serve tapas and a couple of which offer a full menu. There are also 2 small supermarkets, one with it's own bakery, which sell all essentional shopping items including fresh meat, fruit and veg. The travelling market visits on the 4th and 19th of every month with a few stalls selling clothing, plants, nuts & olives etc. For a wider range of shops and a bustling twice monthly market (5th and 20th), the town of Ugijar is just 10 kilometers away. The village pool is open during the months of July and August and there are numerous fiestas throughout the year, the largest of these being Moors and Christians in September when the villagers re-enact the taking of the Alhambra complete with horses and musket fire.

You are surrounded by magnificent views of the Sierra Nevada and Contraviersa mountain ranges with numerous opportunities for walking and mountain biking on your doorstep. For the more adventurous, Mulhacen is close at hand.

Try visiting a local vineyard, take a walking tour, hire a mountain bike, visit the historical city of Granada, explore the local villages or simply while away your time relaxing by the pool!

Popular with Spanish tourists but as yet relatively undiscovered by other nationalities, Valor is an extremely friendly pueblo blanco and an ideal place to observe and enjoy the traditional Spanish way of life.

"An amazing house in a grove of olive and almond trees and a view of the Sierra Nervada mountains to die for"

We had a wonderful holiday, intending to go for hikes in the mountains every day, but ended up enjoying being at the house so much, we stayed put, watching the kids play in the pool and the various games they invented. Instead, as the sun cooled each day, we went out for early evening walks that ended at the local tapas in bars and everyone was happy. A big thank you to Ginny and Terry for looking after us and making us feel welcome.

"Wonderful apartment, views and area"

We loved Las Encinillas! Staying between Christmas and new year, we couldn't have asked for a nicer apartment to unwind in. We loved the woodburning stove, the elegant decor, the views and the ex… More
