Lecrin Valley

Valley of Lecrin

One of the prized treasures that hides the province of Granada is the Valley of Lecrín.

This small region of Granada situated in the south west side of Sierra Nevada, maintains a great diversity of landscapes.

It is found situated in a gorge surrounded by deep ravines, and enjoys abundant water and a microclimate that favours the cultivation of citric plants and avocados amongst others.

The perfume of the valley at dawn, when the oranges and lemon trees are in flower, is an experience difficult to forget.

All these characteristics make the Valley of Lecrin, a superb framework to live in contact with nature, but also very near some of the better known tourist attraction in the south of Spain.

Tropical Coast

Costa Tropical de Granada

The Costa Tropical is on the southern coast of Spain, at the eastern end of the better-known Costa del Sol.

This stretch of coastline takes its name from the sub-tropical climate which allows the cultivation of exotic fruits and crops such as avocadoes, mangoes, bananas and sugar cane.

There are three main resort towns on the Tropical Coast - Almuñecar, Salobreña and Motril. Almuñecar is the tourist capital of the Costa and is one of the most Spanish resorts along the entire south coast. It's a favoured holiday haunt of the Spanish from Granada as it provides excellent leisure facilities but has not been tainted by the trappings of mass tourism.

Los Guajares

Los Guajares

The Los Guajares is formed by 3 separate districts; Guajar Fondón, Guajar Alto and Guajar Faragüit.

Set in a valley irrigated by the spring water from the river Toba.

Situated only 15 minutes from the beaches of Motril and Salobrena and at only 45km from the capital city of Granada.

A tropical climate, with mild winters and sweet summers. The three villages have in total aprox. 1.300 habitants.

Alpujarra

Ciervos en Sierra Nevada

The Alpujarra, south side of the Sierra Nevada, offers endless waves of hills in the hot sun, cool evening air, lush vegetation, views of snow covered peaks and fantastic hikes between the many small ancient whitewashed villages.

Have you forgotten the taste of real fruit and vegetables. Walk along the local paths and ask the owners of the land to try the taste of his tomatoes, figs, almonds and a whole host of other seasonal goodies. A taste you will never forget.

After the walk you can enjoy a young wine "mosto" in a local bar and savour the tapas that will complete your day!

The Lecrin Valley is just a 30 min. drive to the Sierra Nevada, Spain's highest and most southern mountain range. It is certainly one of Europe's most enjoyable and challenging area for paragliding pilots, horse treking, skiing (December till April), hiking and trekking, mountain biking, or just sightseeing to the terraced hills, deep ravines, mountain streams and pretty whitewashed villages... a dream come true for all those who love mountains and unspoilt nature.

Poniente Granadino

West of GranadaIn this region of the Poniente Granadino presently known as the limits of the Province of Granada, of Malaga and Cordoba, previously known for more then two centuries, the frontier between the Kingdom of Nazario of Granada and the Christian Kingdom of Castilla.

It was the last frontier of the "Al Andaluz" and due to this the villages and land are full of rich legends, history and battles.

Surrounded by watchful towers, castles, palaces and mosques, routes that served to invade territories, crags where they ambushed ferocious opponents.

Discover the Poniente is to confront history. All the historical legends are conserved today in the form of castles, hot springs and memories. The landscape is marked by forests, cut by rivers, raised deserts and picturesque places. Set within the natural Park of "Sierra de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama".

Montefrío

Lost in the rolling hills of olive groves in the north-western reaches of Granada Province, at 2,500 feet above sea level, the picturesque town of Montefrio, standing well away from the region's beaten paths, has conserved much of its traditional charm.

It is famous all over Spain for the wedge-shaped cliff overlooking the village and crowned with the great Gothic church of La Villa, itself built on the dismantled foundations of the fortress built by the Moors of Granada, in their ultimately useless attempt to keep out the encroaching Christian armies of Isabel and Ferdinand.
