Sierra Nevada national park has snow capped peaks, a ski centre, Trevelez, the highest village in spain, wild flowers not found elsewhere in Europe and wonderful walking country. There are guides available for the more adventurous or well marked paths at the lower levels.

We have over 340 days of sun a year with cool winter nights.You can walk to all the surrounding villages on ancient mule trails. There are restaurants and bars within 15 minutes walk from the house. Local trails start right outside the door.
