Overview

One of five high class, self-catering apartments hidden amidst pine forests in an impressive mountain estate. It’s private, tranquil and the views reach to the Mediterranean on clear days.

These are some of the most elegant holiday apartments in La Alpujarra. Amongst the first accommodation to be built locally for quality lets, they have a certain grandeur and offer a taste of the very best in Alpujarra architecture in a spectacular setting.

The estate is situated at an altitude of 1,500 metres and easily accessed from a maintained forestry track between the villages of Pitres and Capileira. Built entirely of local stone and incorporating a significant element of carpentry in chestnut work by the master craftsman owner, the individual apartments are distributed over an extensive area and look out onto mature gardens planted with flowers, shrubs, trees and lawns.

Each apartment is designed to enjoy a measure of privacy with its own patio, terrace, or courtyard, and despite being part of a complex, each serves as a romantic retreat thanks to the way the property is laid out. In fact, the word "complex" hardly does justice to these superb country farmhouse apartments. They were designed by an expert on Moorish architecture and built by pioneers in quality restorations in La Alpujarra: you can expect the very best in local architecture preservation.

All apartments have the same proud, distinctive and refined style. Although varying a little in size, capacity and facilities, they are all very attractively presented and well finished. AP17(3) tends to be a favourite, not least on account of the view from its wonderful first-floor terrace.  It's a lovely, romantic and bright 45m² studio apartment, reached up garden steps. 

The kitchen doubles as breakfast/dining room and underfloor heating keeps the apartment warm throughout the winter months.

The terrace is completely private and magnificent: almost as big as the apartment itself. It overlooks the gardens and offers lovely views of the mountains. Sunloungers here make it a perfect spot to relax in the mountain sun (always remember sun protection is important at this altitude).

The swimming pool area is situated on one side of the farmhouse, where it cannot disturb any of the guests. It is a large circular affair sitting neatly within a rugged landscape. Although there are solar panels that begin to warm the water from early spring, in our opinion swims can be bracing in April and May, but after then it is a real treat. The sun is strong this high up and, especially in the hotter months, swims are very refreshing.

Despite being shared, the pool area remains intimate and inviting. At the back of the pool, a short track connects to the famed European GR-7 footpath which crosses the Alpujarras before continuing all the way to Greece.

Beyond and all around the estate spread pine forests in designated Natural Parkland. The relaxing sound of spring water around the farmhouse underlines the tranquillity of this high mountain spot.

A long walk or short drive along the forestry track brings you to Capileira, the most attractive of all the villages in the high Alpujarra in terms of location, facilities, atmosphere and architecture. The same road that leads down to the village goes up to Sierra Nevada National Park. There is excellent hiking along tracks and mule paths, with the summit of Mulhacén (3,481 m) very reachable outside winter months, when the snows are usually too deep.

Trips to Granada and the Alhambra palaces or the beaches of the Costa Tropical make for great days out if you want a change of scene, some cultural excitement, or a day by the Mediterranean.

YOUR REVIEWS

Jennifer | September | 2014

We had a fantastic holiday. The apartment was excellent and the owner made us feel very welcome and went out of his way to recommend good walks and places to visit. It is perfectly placed for those interested in walking as the GR7 footpath runs right along the back of the grounds. It was great to be within walking distance of several of the local villages, but it might be helpful if you make it clear that you would not be able to walk down to the villages in the evenings as it would be dangerous to try to walk back in the dark due to the uneven and steep paths. We would definitely recommend the apartment to our family and friends."

Rustical Update

It's true that a car is really needed for going to and from Pitres village. The Location information for the property does state that Pitres is 3 km away (2 km of track, 1 km of road), which we hope makes that clear.
