The popular tourist destinations of Granada and the Alhambra are 1 hour 20 minutes drive away. The ski resorts of the Sierra Nevada are easily reached from Granada. The market town of Orgiva is 35 minutes drive away. It is a little over a 1 hour drive to several secluded coves and beaches from Rijana east of Motril to Cantarijan west of Almunecar. There are the expansive sandy beaches of Salobrena in between. Amenities such as bank, pharmacy and supermarket are available in Pitres two km away. There are charming bars in the neighbouring village only 15 min walk away with free tapas and great ambiance, and also an excellent vegetarian / vegan restaurant.

As with many others who now live in this area I came for a weekend 12 years ago to get a break from a stressful life in London, and found instead the place that my heart had been waiting for.
I am an architect who has specialized in the study and restoration of the historic Islamic heritage of the Granada region. Like all of life here, the deeper you go the more interesting it gets.
