If you are looking for solace and tranquility and an unforgettable experience of Spanish mountain hospitality, from the delightful and charming villagers, then you have found the perfect retreat.

Lubrin Pueblo nestles high in the Sierra Los Filabres some 2000feet above the well known beach resorts of Mojacar and Garrucha which are just 45 minutes away. Lubrin is a small village of about 500 of the nicest people you are ever likely to meet. There are a number of Cafe/Bars that offer Tapas. Meson Molinos is a restaurant offering fine wines and a mouthwatering menu. Bar Lopez is located in Rambla Aljibe, which is one of the dozen or so hamlets in the Parish of Lubrin, where you can get a good wholesome 3 course Menu del Dias including wine for about 12 Euros

There are 3 Banks and the village shops include 2 Supermarkets, 3 Butchers, 3 Bakers (no Candlestick Makers!!) and an Ironmongers. You can buy anything from a pin to a Porsche( well not quite a Porsche). Market day is on a Wednesday when you can stock up with fresh fruit and vegetables on most days the fresh fish van comes up from the coast.

Life in Lubrin is a time warp and will remind us more senior citizens of an early childhood where family groups sit out on the streets on hot summer nights with children playing until the sun sets over the hill.

The Andalucia region

This unique rural cottage holiday is located on a 2 acre Andalucia finca on the edge of the authentic Spanish village of Lubrin, Almeria in Andalucia. Lubrin pueblo is a typical Andalucian village tucked away some 2000ft in the Sierra de Los Filabres and just 45 minutes inland from Mojacar on the Costa del Almeria.. It’s charm lies in its narrow streets, its white village houses adorned with bright geraniums and bougainvillea, and its endless sunshine. Not forgetting the charming villagers of Lubrin that provide for all the basic holiday necessities and includes 2 Supermarkets, 2 Bakers, 2 Butchers, Bank with ATM machine, Post Office, 3 Restaurants and numerous Tapas Bars where you can get a Menu del Dias for just €12 including wine.

The accommodation is ideally located to provide peace and tranquility yet within walking distance of the village. The finca occupies a hilltop and is surrounded by terraced lawns and Olive, Almond and Pomegranate trees. The self catering cottage is full of character, spacious and with modern amenities. There is a fully equipped kitchen and outside has the benefit of very private terraces to greet the morning sun with a cup of tea or coffee and toast the last rays with a glass of wine.

The mountain views are truly panoramic and on a clear day include the Mediterranean sea. There is a swimming pool to cool off on those very hot days or just pick a shady spot to read a book, sip a glass of wine or take in the views. If you feel a bit more energetic there is moderate self guided walking and cycling straight out of the main entrance into the surrounding foothills.

Lubrin

The more Spanish resorts of San Juan Torres and Aquilas (to the North) and Carboneras, Agua Marga and San Jose ( to the South) are about an hour away. These Spanish resorts, in Summer, are very much less crowded, especially mid-week, than Mojacar and Garrucha.

Places of Interest include Cuevas de Almanzora for its cave houses and Tabernas for its magnificent Desert National Park. At Tabernas is a Westen Theme park on the site of the Clint Eastwood Movies!

The Cabo de Gata National Park is one of the most beautiful and ecologically rich coastal strips in the western Mediterranean and is the first Natural land and sea park in Andalucia. The drive takes just over an hour and the route down the mountain, via Nijar, is very dramatic. The park offers walks on marked trails and tracks amongst native scrub and grasses, amidst the scent of wild lemon balm and the distinctive aromas of curry plant and herbs. You are able to follow inland trails and coastline.

The ancient Andalusian city of Almeria (1 hour away)lies sheltered at the base of a bay, proudly dominated by the amazing Alcazaba, a huge Moorish citadel with three walled enclosures dating from 995. From the citadel visitors have a good view of the city’s most impressive and important Christian monument, the Cathedral, dating from 1524, designed more like a fortress than a church because of the need to defend it from pirate attacks. The Cathedral contains numerous art treasures, including a tabernacle dating from the 18th century, designed by Ventura Rodriguez. With its interesting medieval architecture, Almeria’s old town is a delight to stroll through with its tranquil squares, archways and colonnades. The city also has a fascinating archaeological museum and unique cave dwellings in the hillside above the old gypsy quarter.

The Alhambra in Granada is a very popular place to visit by our guests. It takes just 2 hours to drive to Granada along the Almeria to Sevilla motorway with stunning views. The motorway skirts around Granada and the Alhambra car park is easily accessed. There is a shuttle bus that takes you from the Alhambra direct to the Plaza de Nueva where it’s a short walk to the Cathedral and Royal Chapel.

“Peaceful location with lots of walks”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2015

We were a bit early for the pool but cottage was equipped with a log burner and was very cosy in the cooler evenings. We were well looked after and enjoyed our stay. Very peaceful.

“Lubrin.- Timeless, beautiful old Andalusian Mountain Village - a must!”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2014

Beautiful old farm house out building in wonderful location. Loved the stay - relaxing - time stood still in this old world small village. Lovely walks, lovely accommodation, lovely people , really did not want to leave. Loved the tapas and local wine. Accommodation wonderful location and well appointed.

“A tranquil,warm,relaxing holiday with very welcoming hosts.”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2014

Directions from Alicante were detailed and clear. We were greeted by John waving from the hilltop of Cortijo Fuente Arriba and over the next 10 days his & Mair's hospitality (never intrusive) & knowledge of Lubrin & the surrounding area were an important part of our holiday. We enjoyed two market days & coffees in the square of the pueblo (Lubrin) five minutes walk away where there are several friendly inexpensive eating places. Walking was our main activity with a number of great self-guided walks into the hills mapped out by John. Take good trainers or walking boots. Casita Musica was comfortable with adequate provision for self-catering & a slightly eccentric shower which on acquaintance was fine. The swimming pool was very welcome & the evenings spent watching incomparable sunsets while chatting to our hosts were a delight. An excellent holiday for days spent in peace and clean air.

“The perfect place to relax moving between the Andalucian hills and the sea”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2013

This was exactly the type of holiday we wanted - restful, quiet, but with the opportunity to do things we wanted. The owners lived on site and were very hospitable, offering us free drinks and nibbles at the end of days on occasions. They gave us good info about the area and the owner had prepared 4 walks for us to go on. He was helpful as to which to go on and provided pictures to assist on the route. They could not have been more helpful when we needed assistance. When we first arrived we came up a steep track and wondered what we were in for, but we could not have been more pleasantly surprised. The pool seemed small when we first looked, but it was perfect to go in after some time in the sun and we did not need it to be bigger. The owner provided excellent instructions as to how to drive from Almeria airport to their accommodation and said text when near so he could keep an eye open for us. We could get the internet in the place but not in our actual living quarters - never minded going to a table near the pool, but ideally would have liked it available without moving! Overall, we were delighted with our choice and would definitely recommend it to others.

“Peace & Quiet!”

Hidden away up in the mountains John has created a tranquil and comfortable rental. The village of Lubrin is a short walk away and has a number of small and friendly bars with cheap but tasty tapas. For the more adventurous the Alhambra in Granada is a day trip away and the coast can be reached in an hour or so by car. Mini Hollywood at Tabernas is worth a visit for the western show & zoo. All in all a really peaceful getaway, thoroughly recommended.
