The region is known as 'Las Alpujarras' and is an enchanting part of Spain. Treasured by the Moors as a paradise location this mountainous area is situated between the summits of the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean coast of the Costa del Sol. As a holiday destination it is ideal for walking, cycling, riding, photography, painting and the appreciation of flowers and wildlife; but most of all for just unwinding and taking time out. It is within easy striking distance of the historical city of Granada with its fabulous Alhambra Palace, yet is close enough to the coast to enjoy a well deserved day lounging on the beach. During the winter and spring you can even go skiing on the high slopes of the Sierra Nevada - less than two hours by car. Mulhacen is the highest peak in the area (and in mainland Spain) at a little under 3,500 metres. Cortijo Opazo is situated at 1,250 metres in the high Alpujarras and enjoys an excellent climate. The conditions of Andalucia in southern Spain ensure that there is plenty of sun during the winter months when the weather is usually warm enough for t-shirts and light clothing during the day. The summer months are hot but the altitude means that when evening comes there is always a delightful stream of cool air flowing down the valley from the high Sierras, a type of natural air conditioning.Formerly a working farmhouse, Cortijo Opazo can be found in the countryside near the villages of Pitres, Portugos and the area of La Taha, about 25kms from the town of Orgiva. It is surrounded by ancient terraces used today by shepherds and market gardeners. The cortijo has been renovated to provide holiday accommodation in two delightful lodgings, La Corona and El Lujar, named after the two mountain summits that the house faces. La Corona (se our other listing for El Lujar) is well appointed accommodation in a rustic style with plenty of light and fantastic views across the valley. It comprises of a large open plan sitting room/kitchen/diner with a separate bathroom and double bedroom. Under floor heating throughout the accommodation. Living area is well furnished, wood burning stove for additional cosiness, and a selection of books and games to enjoy. Dining area has seating for 4. Kitchen is fully equipped with modern fitted units, fridge, full-sized electric oven, and a four ring ceramic hob with extractor fan. A good choice of china and kitchen ware is provided. Bathroom has a sink, toilet, and walk-in 'BodySpa' power shower. Double bedroom with a wardrobe, further hanging space, and two shuttered windows that look out to fabulous views of the mountains. Outside there's a large shady veranda facing south, a sun terrace and a fabulous garden, all looking across the valley below. Tables, chairs, loungers etc. are available.

About the neighbourhood
The Alpujarras is a wonderful place for a holiday and for relaxing generally. It is ideal for walking and offers a vast range of options from challenging high level snow line walks to casual meanderings around the valley. Wherever you go you are accompanied by the sound of water, either from the racing Rio Trevelez and Rio Poqueira, or from the innumerable irrigation channels delivering water to the cultivated land. It is a unique area, treasured by the Moors until they were expelled by the Christians in the 15th century, and still shows many signs of their occupation. Most notably the style of Berber architecture, little white box houses with flat grey roofs supported by sturdy chestnut timbers. Many people choose to use this area as a base for visiting the city of Granada and the magica...
Getting around
Most guests choose to hire a car and this is the easiest way to reach us and to travel around and see the sights. Car hire is reasonable economical in Spain. There is a bus service to the area from Granada which runs three times a day. With careful planning it is possible to arrive here on a bus from Granada or Malaga, and since the shops are only a short walk from the Cortijo (1.5km) it is possible to enjoy a relaxing holiday here without a car - many of our in house walks start and finish at Cortijo Opazo.
