Overview

To enter this house, from the village street in Pitres village in the High Alpujarra, is to pass from the simple to the splendid.

A voluminous, high-ceilinged hallway leads to a naturally lit interior patio, filled with potted plants, where a pool area created in the image of a Moorish hammam bath.

The gentle water invites guests to refreshing dips during the long Andalusian summer. 

A corner with cushions has been prepared for stretching out on lazy afternoons. Drinks can be brought over from the adjacent bodega: originally a wine cellar where local people pressed their grapes, its Bacchanal character has been carried over in its reincarnation as your private bar for enjoying a glass or two in an atmosphere of old Spain.

With beautiful old furniture and decoration, it confirms the house as a class act in this modest, traditional mountain village.

The upper floor is equally satisfying, a summer lounge leading onto a wide terrace filled with colourful plants. The terrace has all you might want and expect for outdoor living, sunloungers, sunshades, barbecue. There is a second sitting room with a wood-burning stove that is just the place for warm winter evenings.
 
The accommodation is arranged around the internal patio, providing plenty of natural light. From a hall that links both lounges leads an open-plan kitchen and dining room, fully equipped for ten or more, with all the appliances and utensils you could possibly need for the most demanding cook. There is scope for catering for a special event, or simply enjoying an intimate dinner with numerous friends or family.

The bathroom area, on the same first floor as all five bedrooms, is arranged as follows:

Three independent bathing booths, curtained off by hanging tapestries: two have large showers & basin; one has bath/shower & basin.

There are two, separate, private WCs and another double basin.

This bathroom area is imaginative, more practical than it may sound, and all skilfully tiled. It isn't a standard arrangement of en suite bathrooms, but it affords privacy when it matters.

There is a third WC downstairs.

All the rooms have electric or gas heaters or an open fire, although do bear in mind that in winter the central patio and its hammam pool are open to the sky and not heated.
 
The Taha location in the Alpujarras makes it an ideal base for discovering this peaceful and scenic mountain world, especially on foot. Walking groups love this area.

Pitres has little tourism and its rhythm of life is pretty much what it has always been: calm and unrushed. The main square livens up on Friday market day when its bars and terraces fill up, otherwise it’s a laid-back place to rest up after a day in the mountains. There's an excellent, large swimming pool with restaurant at a campsite very close to Pitres. During summer months it is open to the general public on payment of an entrance fee, and provides a very pleasant place to spend the day, sunbathing, swimming and having lunch on the restaurant´s terrace.

A short walk from the house is the main church square, where you will find a well-stocked village supermarket, bakery, bank with ATM, and simple café-bar-restaurants.

Pitres village is the head of La Taha district and there are six smaller villages to explore and get to know. These enchanting hamlets, dating back to Moorish times, are set together in great Alpujarra walking country. We explain in more detail together with our recommendations on where to eat out at genuine country restaurants along walking routes in our High Alpujarra Guide: one of the holiday documents you will receive before travelling.

The popular Poqueira Valley is only ten minutes’ drive away towards Granada. And if you are looking for unspoilt alpine terrain on the slopes of Spain's highest mountains, you can follow trails from Spain’s highest village, Trevelez, 25 minutes in the opposite direction.

Other day trips include Granada no less and the Alhambra, and the Mediterranean beaches of the Costa Tropical.
