Cuesta Vinas is a small hamlet famed for its naturally carbonated spring water. Situated just 2 kms out of the village of Valor, (a gentle 30 minute stroll), this casita is perched on the hillside above the hamlet and offers peace and tranquillity without being remote.Within the 4000 square meters of land are two casitas (Cuesta Vinas 334029) each with their own private pool, private sunbathing areas and their own gardens.Casa Verde has a beautifully tiled outdoor terrace to the rear of the house overhung by vines and olive trees where you can laze away the days in either sun or shade. There are sunbeds, a gas barbecue and a rustic outdoor dining area so it's also a great evening relaxation spot.. Steps from here climb through the lavender and past the soft fruit garden to the top terrace where you'll find the generously sized pool with second sunbathing area and stunning views across to the Contraviesa mountain range. Enjoy the flowers and butterflies which abound and the local birds which nest around the house and swoop around the terrace in the early morning and evening, occasionally taking a diversion through the house itself! The pool is filtered and contains a minimum of chlorine, so you can find yourself sharing with the occasional friendly frog!The sunny casita is open-plan with a well equipped free-standing wooden kitchen, central dining area, sitting area with wood burning stove and a comfortable bedroom area. Double doors open off the kitchen and a second set open onto the secluded rear terrace giving the space a very open and airy feel. The house is traditionally built with shutters which keep the space cool during July and August whilst ensuring a cosy space during the colder months of winter. The kitchen area is fully equipped with 5 ring gas hob, fridge with icebox and sink. There is ample crockery, glassware, cutlery etc. and you will always find the basic kitchen ingredients , such as oil, vinegar and a selection of herbs and spices, in addition to your welcome pack. The living area is focused around the old wood burner with comfortable seating for 4 and contains a selection of books and games for evening entertainment. The separate, tiled bathroom contains a multifunction shower with body jets and waterfall setting, washbasin and wc.There is wireless broadband and a speaker system suitable for an ipod or laptop available for your use in the casita and ample parking outside of the house.

The Andalucia region

Las Alpujarras are the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range close to Granada in Andalucia. Only one hour from the coast yet a world away from the typical Spanish Costas it's the ideal location to experience rural Andalucia with it's slow and relaxed pace of life. Tapas bars abound, goats and mules clog the otherwise deserted lanes and the smell of wild herbs meets you as you take an evening stroll yet a two hour drive will take you to the vibrant city of Granada famed for it's flamenco tradition and the unmissable Alhambra Palace.

Valor gazes out over the valley to the bustling market town of Ugijar with a wide array of shops. Within the village you'll find a couple of small supermarkets, a pharmacy, bank and gift shop as well as a choice of 9 bars. 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.


Visit 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!

"Would return with no hesitation"

If you like walking and views then this casa is ideal! Located 30 mins walk (5 mins drive) from valor, a lovely, unspoilt and traditional Spanish town. The casa itself is cosy (but not cramped) and a lot of thought and time has been put into the layout and the facilities on offer. The casa did not feel like a rental property at all, did not feel bare or utilitarian, it really did feel like a cosy little hideaway. There was an abundance of storage space, a very well equipped kitchen, a well lit bathroom and a lovely shower. The pool in this property must rank amongst the best in Spain for its' location and views and was an absolute pleasure to use or sit beside. The owners of the property were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the local areas and beyond. We would not hesitate to rent this property again should we return to this, very beautiful, region of Spain!
