Description from owner


Casa Aloe is located on the edge of the beautiful village of Atalbeitar, minutes from the Sierra Nevada National Park. The views from the house are magnificent.

Tom and Carmen ( the owners) are both artists, and have delighted in creating a space that is charming and harmonious. "We have spent the last 10 winters restoring the house with all our love and care, and so we are very happy when people come and enjoy it".

It makes an ideal holiday base for lovers of beauty and nature, as well as Andalusian culture.

It is popular amongst artists and walkers, and it´s proximity to the Sierra Nevada National park, offers a whole range of outdoors activities in a stunning location.

Atalbeitar is a delightful white and ancient village that date from the time of the Moors, it's in the famous Alpujarras valley, and it's situated on the South facing slope of the highest mountain in Spain and only 50 km. from the Mediterranean coast.

The village has ancient donkey lanes and a charming square which fountain water that comes from a spring. It is car free, and a haven for walks and children games.

About Casa Aloe:

The house has been recently restored using traditional materials in original ways, with beauty and comfort in mind. Chestnut beams, bedrock corners and many unique touches give it a rustic charm.

It has a swimming pool, at last! and it is heated in the colder months.

The system we use to purify the water is sand and salt, so your skin and eyes will be kindly treated here. It has also a hydro-massage and swimming against the current system so that you can exercise and feel revitalised and restored.

There is an interior patio, shady and plant-filled to escape the heat of the midday summer sun, where there is a Barbecue available for your use.

And two large terraces with spectacular views, the main one is totally baby, toddler and child proof, as we now have a toddler ourselves!

And speaking of children, we have toys for them too, like a large dolls house with Sylvanians and a tricycle! and as the village is car free you can enjoy giving them rides through all the exciting labyrinthian streets...

In the evenings explore the variety of restaurants and bars in our valley, where the tradition is to give a free "tapa" ( plates of food specialities) with every drink, and where often you can catch an evening of local music.

Get cosy beside the open fire, eat out on the terrace under the pergola with the uninterrupted views of the valley beneath you, explore our selection of games, or just relax and read a book.

But we also have 2 televisions and a home cinema system, with many channels where you can watch many programs and films in the original language.

A DVD player is available too with some DVD's for your enjoyment.

There is also WIFI if you need to catch up with your life from one of the terraces whilst watching the views.....

Enjoy the cultural experience of an Andalusian village, whilst having the peace and quiet of a rural retreat if you so wish.

There are a number of horse-riding places either for novices or the fully-experienced (or both together), also there's a tennis court not far, and we can point you in the right direction for unforgettable walks with incredible views.

There are in the house, as well as other suggestions, a collection of maps with exciting detailed walks via the moorish paths.

Further details indoors:

The swimming pool is semi-indoor, meaning that in the cold months we close it up so that it is indoor and heated...and in the warmer months it is open to the leafy coutyard with access to the sunny terraces.

It always has a roof. We have done it this way because these days we believe the sun is harmful and the water takes away the protection creams, so this way you and your children can swim all day without getting sun damage and then go to the sun deck and put your protection cream.


There are local people that provide a number of interesting activities, like flamenco classes, horse riding, specialised walks, etc.

Any other interests please let us know.

Perfect for mountain biking also.

Very Good

“Bohemian Rhapsody!”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2013

This ancient house is a work of art. Situated in a tiny Moorish village (which nestles in the mountains and has no touristy clutter), the building overflows with character. The artist owners have decorated it with heaps of funky/boho/historic style, and it also has a stunning view from the main dining terrace - right down the valley. We went in spring and the mountains were alive with wildflowers. There are lots of lovely walks (not all uphill!) and some charming villages to visit - not to mention unmissble Granada. When you return to the house in the evening, you could sit on the roof terrace for ever - watching the sunset turn into the stars. A lovely ambience. Not sleek and seamless like a 5-star hotel, but something better - a house with a soul!
