Casa Rif is a large detached townhouse at the front of the village of Cañar. It has a very large, private roof terrace (60m2) with a heated jacuzzi/spa, BBQ and quality lounge and dining furniture. Canar is uniquely situated in the High Alpujarra - nearest village to Orgiva with all its amenities only 10 mins' drive away, yet also has everything you need close to hand - a grocers open 7 days a week, pharmacy and 2 great bars serving meals and tapas. At an altitude of 1150m , Casa Rif boasts open views that are truly unrivalled in the region to which no words or pictures could ever do justice. On a clear day, the Rif Mountains of Morocco can be seen. Canar is totally unspoiled, with the famous GR7 walking route passing through the village, making it accessible to constantly changing scenery. Whether you're interested in walking, cy... Read more

I have travelled the length of the Costas and inland Spain, but have to say this was the most...

We stayed in La Estrella within the small village of Canar. The day we arrived we drove up the winding road wondering where it was taking us! Our Sat Nav took us to the car park which was handy and we met with Robin, our host. Robin was friendly, knowledgable and always handy if required. After calling him he arrived...

As a lone female traveller, I stayed for a week in Robin's renovated village town house before moving onto with friends to another of his properties, The Mill, a few kilometres away. Canar is in the heart of La Alpujarra.... far, far from the madding crowd. High in the Sierra Nevada, the scenery is breathtaking. Once I'd conquered my fear...

About the neighbourhood
Unspoiled, wildlife, lush, mountains, flora, sunsets, sunrises, friendly, historic, alternative, tapas, Berber, peaceful, Moorish... so many descriptions used and overused in a thousand narratives of La Alpujarra. For me, it's the light. Mountains appear so close in the morning, crisp and clearly defined, then seem to retreat in hazy pastel shades in the heat of the sun. The day ends with long shadows, javelins of light from the west, sharp on whitewashed village walls in the evening. Bliss.
