An architect delight, this house was restored with love and creativity, yet has a very functional open feeling. The views are breathtaking over a gorge and you are immediately in another world as you walk out of the door into this ancient village.

The space

The apartment has been recently refurbished to a high standard and it is set in a peaceful, magical environment, the village and surrounding area are very special. It is fully fitted out with all necessary amenities and includes washing machine and internet access. There

Guest access

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. Ferreirola is regularly visited by bread, fruit and vegetable, and fish deliveries.
Amenities require a little forethought but magic and beauty are here for you to enjoy in abundance right on the doorstep.

Interaction with guests

You will be left in peace during your stay if you wish, if you have questions I am an architect with a knowledge of the culture and history of the area.

Rafael's house and Ferreirola village are perfect hideaways. We really enjoyed our time there, walking through the terraced fields to explore the neighbouring villages, nibbling figs or almonds, or drinking mineral water from the fountains. Highly recommended.

We rented Rafaels house for 4 of our guests for our wedding in Ferreirola. Everything was great! Our guests were very pleased with their stay and we as hosts had great communication with Rafael and Nancy, who handed us the keys and showed us around the house. I can really recommend Rafaels house!

Rafael's house is a gem - it's as good as it looks in the photographs and full of lovely things. We felt very lucky to stay there, in the quiet little village of Ferrierola at the end of the road and under the stars. We had four days of amazing walks around the mountains and villages there. Thank you!

We adored Rafa's cosy house! It was perfect for a winter's break with a gorgeous open fire. The kitchen is renovated and well equipped and the shower is really fab. Sitting out on the terrace was beautiful - so incredibly quiet and peaceful, surrounded by nature. The town itself is very pretty and we loved having the only naturally fizzy water source in the Alpujarra right there. There are some fantastic walks/hikes you can start straight outside the house. The neighbouring area is also really nice - Bubion and Capileira are well worth visiting for their views. Would highly recommend both the house and area!

We had a lovely stay here! The apartment was in a great location and we enjoyed the amazing setting in the mountains. The apartment was clean, comfortable and had a lot of character. Communication with Rafael before our stay was great and we would recommend this place for a wonderful stay.

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.
