Overview

In the much photographed Poqueira Gorge, you will see the small, white villages of Capileira and Bubion, separated by semi-wild mountainside interspersed with orchards and vegetable plots. The mile of road that winds between the two villages has about three properties along it, in what was once a Moorish settlement. This is one of them.

It has the distinct advantage of having the natural surroundings and feel of a country villa while remaining a short walk from Bubion, one of the Alpujarra’s emblematic villages. It is set back some 30 metres from the quiet road that leads up to Capileira and then to Sierra Nevada National Park.

The rustic villa is virtually private. There is just one neighbouring house which is below, facing away towards views of the mountains and Gorge. Behind the thick vegetation that hides the garden from view runs a footpath all the way up to Capileira. It’s public yet little-known, so you may well find that you are the only ones who make use of it.

The house is a typically rustic Alpujarra affair with beamed ceilings, terracotta floor tiles, open fireplace and chimney. It’s not a luxury house, just a pleasant countryside property where you can enjoy a quiet week or two with gardens and pool, go on some wonderful walks or go horseriding along mountain trails.

In 2016 bathrooms were refurbished, and there has been further improvements in the last few years (such as a new bathroom built in 2017). Despite it still lacks attention to cosmetic details or inspiring decoration, the overall feel is still homely.

The general "rusticness" didn´t personally put us off; we would be delighted to spend holidays at this mountain villa.

The entrance is under a furnished, vine covered porch. There's a large kitchen with breakfast table, and a spacious open-plan living - dining room with an open fireplace. 

Doors open from the kitchen to a completely private rear terrace and lawned gardens, where you have a tremendous 13-metre swimming pool.

From the garden you can see straight down the massive Gorge to the southern cordillera and even, on especially clear days, make out the Rif Mountains in distant Morocco.

There are plenty of sunbeds for relaxing in the sun or shade of the quiet garden.

Bubion, just 5 minutes walk down the road, is a tranquil, largely unchanged old village, whose main activity takes place at the top along the single thoroughfare joining Bubion with Pampaneira below and Capileira above. There are at least two good and inexpensive restaurants, bars and shops. Otherwise, it’s a place of twisting streets with geranium-decked, whitewashed houses, many of which date back hundreds of years.

The walks that lead off in various directions through the Andalucia mountain terrain are extremely rewarding.

Day trips by car include Granada and the Costa Tropical.

YOUR REVIEWS

Mick | August | 2016

This is a comfortable house, with a lovely garden and a stunning pool. Great views back down the Poqueira valley; a short walk to reach the villages of Bubión and Capilleira on either side. Beautifully rural yet less than two hours drive from Malaga, and less to Granada. Relax, walk, ride horses, (cycle or run, if you must), enjoy the local food and drink. (We have other things on next year otherwise we'd be booking now for our third year in a row.) A local English couple look after the property for the owners and are very helpful. Spot on service from Rustical Travel."

Christine | September | 2015

Excellent location for a variety of walks without the need to use a car. Very convenient for local services in both Bubion and Capilleria. Pool very large, so good for those wanting some exercise, if a little fresh towards the end of the summer. Overall a spacious property for larger group or family."

Mick | August | 2015

What a really great place. The house is spacious and well maintained, with a sizable garden and a big swimming pool. The English couple acting as caretakers were welcoming and very helpful, and on hand for any problem. The walking is easy to Bubión and hardly farther to Capilleira, with supermarkets, restaurants, bars and more. The scenery around is just stunning, with plenty of good walks and cycle tracks on well-marked routes. From the motorway the last 26km to the house take around 50 minutes but on a good road, but once back at the motorway both Granada or the seaside are easy day trips. All the arrangements through Rustical Travel were completely easy and satisfactory. We're hoping to go back!"

Charles | September | 2013

What a beautiful part of the world and a beautiful house. A large swimming pool and a good sized house for a relaxing time. It is great for BBQs but there are many places to eat out with many local dishes. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and can not recommend this house highly enough."

Paresh | September | 2013

Hello This was an excellent villa, very well located for good walks. The fruit, nuts and berries were all ripening in the trees and shrubs around us so we grazed around our walks. The pool is wonderful and in fact better than it looks on the photos. The villa is well equipped - we have no real need for TV and we managed to find internet access in nearby resturants. Would definitely go again."
