We stayed near Trevelez for 3 days and toured the area by car as well as some walking. The White Village drives (Capileira, Bubion & Pampineira are the well known ones) are a great way to see the Sierra Nevada region. There are lots of less well known but equally stunning villages with hardly any tourists in sight. The people here are very friendly, the food amazing and, surprisingly, the tourists tend to stay in the few 'hot spots' and not venture into the heart of this area. A car is essential to fully appreciate what is on offer here
Highly recommended - great antidote to the frenetic pace of the towns and beaches on the south coast!
