The Andalucia region

El Chaparro is well situated to visit Andalucia's beautiful and historic cities of Granada, Seville, Cordoba and the beaches of the Costa Tropical. The Alhambra Palace is the gem of the Granada, built by the moors in 890 and inhabited until Christian takeover in 1492

Its beauty and history can only be appreciated first hand; its decorative courtyards and the Generalife gardens planted with roses, oranges and English elms, etc, are second to none.

From the villa you can literally be on the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada in the morning then enjoy the glorious beaches of the Costa Tropical in the afternoon, both being within 1hr 30 minutes of the villa. The beaches of the Costa Tropical begin with the beautiful fishing village of La Herradura and continue with Salobrena and Almunecar, all traditionally Spanish.

Closer to home visit the stunning lake at Iznajar, or Riofrio and its specialist trout restaurants and renowned caviar farms where one can fish with a special licence.

Other Activities: skiing 1hr 15 Sierra Nevada
