In the tiny village of Alfornón in the Alpujarras region of Granada, Andalucia, at 900 metres in the mountains, 40 minutes from the sea.
Rustic self-catered living in a two-bedroom apartment within a restored 600 year old Moorish dwelling, the last of its kind in Alfornon. Andalucian Moorish Casa's kitchen and lounge with cosy fireplace open to an outdoor BBQ area, with spectacular views of the hills lined with olive and almond trees. Soak up Alfornon’s timeless atmosphere in a unique holiday home steeped in a rich history. Sip local wine on your outside terrace and enjoy a deep restful sleep in the peaceful master and twin bedrooms.
Tastefully decorated in simple rustic decor of the region, with fully equipped self-catering kitchen and linen and access to two outdoor areas, you could happily while away a week or a month in unspoilt Alfornon, with access to a local bar and a grocery store open all week and all hours, selling local fresh eggs and organic produce in season, and near to another larger bar and restaurant ten minutes up the road. There are only about 50 inhabitants left in the village all year round, we are really lucky to still have an amazing shop which I urge you to use; they need your trade, the huge hypermarkets don't! The new bar, run by Paco in the bottom street of the village, has a terrace with views for warm evenings, and with wine costing 50 cents a glass, and good tapas, you can't afford to miss it! Stop press, there is now WIFI in the new bar!!
Help keep the village alive!
An easy thirty five minutes drive over the astounding Sierra de la Contraviesa is ‘Orgiva’, a vibrant town with several organic stores, good cafes, restaurants and bars and tourist facilities. Visit on a Thursday, when a colourful market comes to town selling clothing, Moroccan goods, pickles and local produce. A daily bus also runs back and forth between Granada, Orgiva and near to Alfornon.
Nicely positioned to access Malaga, Granada (1 1/2 hours - don't miss the Alhambra), Almeria, surrounding areas of the Sierra Nevada and unspoilt beaches.
Unfortunately due to the steep streets the apartment is not wheelchair friendly.
