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.
