    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Fantastic old stone and beamed house in a tiny village in the Alpujarra mountains in Andalucia Southern Spain. Ideal for walkers and nature lovers. The house has a living room with wood-burning stove, kitchen, bathroom and two connecting bedrooms so sleeps 2-4. There´s a balcony and a huge roof terrace with incredible mountain views. We are just over an hour from Granada and the splendid Alhambra and a little more than two hours from Malaga international airport. The whitewashed villages of the Alpujarras were the last home of the arab kings in Spain and are redolent with charm and history. The pace of life is slow and relaxed and the countryside truly lovely at all times of the year.

A more genuine place from which to explore La Taha and the surrounding valleys and ancient tracks would be hard to find. This small group of villages form part of what was the last outpost of the Moors in Spain and this is evident in the architecture of Casa Barbara and the other houses in Ferreirola. Barbara herself lives next... more

The little four ring gas... more

This was our second visit to Barbara's house in the Alpujarra region of Andalucia, and once again we were transported into a totally unique and gloriously relaxing experience. This traditional Arabic house set in the tiny "pueblos blancos" of Ferreirola could not be more inviting; with its pretty balcony surrounded by honeysuckle and vines, a breathtaking view of the nearby... more
