Location description from owner

The Andalucia region

Granada province is in the middle of Andalucía, in the south of Spain with a climate that invites holidays at all times of the year; from the almond blossom in January to Christmas lunch under a blue sky. Inland from the Costa Tropical and away from the tourists, it is real Spain with white villages, where there are still working mules. The peaks of the Sierra Nevada rise above 3000m, the highest in mainland Spain, and support skikng from December to May. The cities of Cordoba, Sevilla, Jerez, Cadiz, Almería and Granada have reminders of seven centuries, until 1492, of Moorish rule. The excellent motorway system makes them all readily accessible: Granada and the Alhambra 50km, 30 minutes, Almería 125km Jaen 131km and Málaga 166km, less than 2 hours, Cordoba 189km, Sevilla 299km, Jerez 295km and Cadiz 365km a little longer.

Albunuelas

ALBUÑUELAS is an old Andaluz pueblo blanco, a village of white houses, lying at 737m, at the head of the Lecrín valley. This 'vale of happiness' [from the Arabic], beneath the Sierra de Albuñuelas which rises to 1504m at Herrero, verdant and well irrigated since the time of the Moors, grows a wealth of oranges, lemons, pomegranates, avocados, mangoes and vegetables - with almonds and olives, and pines covering the higher slopes. Something is being harvested at all times of the year. Midway from the City of Granada to the coast at Salobreña, its lake Béznar is fed by the melting snows of the Sierra Nevada. Unlike the adjacent Alpujarra it remains hidden from the influences of tourism, but with Granada half an hour and the others less than an hours drive, it is an ideal centre.LECRIN VALLEY comprises a dozen villages, many with Mudéjar XVIc churches, castles, Moorish watchtowers, olive mills, museum, vinyards and a winery.ALBUÑUELAS has a bank, pharmacy, shops, bars, restaurant, daily bread deliveries to the door and fresh fish and vegetables by vans, a weekly market and a regular daily bus service to Granada and places en route. There is an XVIIIc church, a XIVc Moorish tower, Torre de Bayo, XVIIIc Archbishop's Palace, Convent and Hermitage.GRANADA is a World Heritage Centre with the Alhambra, Generalife palace and gardens, Albaicín white town sat on the adjacent hill, university [1526], monasteries [1492 and 1516], cathedral [1523] and important Plaza de Torros [1928].Capital of the Arab Kingdom in Europe for 800 years until the reconquest by Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492. Every sort of shop, restaurant and countless bars where the tapas, unlike most of Spain, remains free and classical, flamenco, jazz and Arabic music available in many different venues. ALPUJARRAS, east of the fine spa town of LANJARÓN [660m] 18km, which has an arab castle, many hotels, pools and bottles much of Spain's spa water - Stunningly pretty area of steep valleys and tiny villages, on the south slopes of the Sierra Nevada, having much in common with the Atlas, long isolated, refuge to the Moors in XVI century, now becoming known to tourists and made famous by Gerald Brennan in South from Granada and latterly Chris Stewart in Driving over Lemons. They lived in Yegen and above Orgiva, respectively.
