Casa Limón in La Alpujarra
A beautiful place to enjoy nature. In and around house and garden, listening to the singing of birds, the evening cry of a fox and the cries of partridges. Looking at a twittering group of bee-eaters with their colorful plumage or the couple of royal eagles circling above our valley when they descend from the high mountains. You can also make beautiful walks and bike rides in the immediate vicinity and in the high mountains. Or make a tour by car along the charming villages of La Alpujarra. And of course there are beaches, cities and nature to explore in the wider surroundings …
The nearest village is the picturesque Pampaneira (7 km), one of the most beautiful villages in Spain (just like nearby Bubión and Capileira): here you will find many restaurants and cosy shops.
The Mulhacén, the highest mountain in the Iberian Peninsula, shows off above the impressive Poqueira valley: the application for addition to the list of World Heritage is being prepared.
Órgiva (11 km), surrounded by olive groves, is the regional center of La Alpujarra, with associated facilities. Every Thursday morning you will find a colorful, extensive market here.
Within a 45 minutes drive you are at sea: visit the beaches of Salobreña or Almuñecar with all their facilities, the quieter beach of Motril, or discover one of the small hidden coves – sometimes you can even get there only on foot …
Granada is at one hour’s drive from Casa Limón: a very lively student city full of historic monuments, culminating in the Alhambra (do not forget to reserve on time, see Links), the Moorish quarter the Albaicín, the cathedral … Go ‘tapear’, strolling along the city centre: you get a free tapa when you order a glass. Also with us in La Alpujarra and in the rest of the province of Granada you get a free tapa almost everywhere.
And why not enjoy one or more days of snow: the ski/snowboard area in the Sierra Nevada is normally open from late November to early May, and has up to 131 km of pistes. You are there within a 1.30 h drive!
Or what about a long hike to the top of the Mulhacén at 3470 m (fortunately a bus brings you from Capileira up to 2600 m …), canyoning in the Río Verde, or horse riding in the mountains?
In Casa Limón there is an extensive folder with sights and tips about activities and visits in the area and with many ideas for the most beautiful walks. There is so much to do and see, but do not forget to enjoy nature, peace and space around Casa Limón!
