Our surroundings


Sierra Nevada National Park is a perfect place for many beautiful walks such as the famous "Vereda de las Estrellas" and the "Lavaderos de la Reina" or "el paseo de viajeros Románticos". There are many more walking possibilities, also shorter walks and we have many maps in the Casa at your disposal.


We have up to 110 km of slopes in winter within a 30-minute drive from the rural house. The ski resort is called Sol y Nieve and is divided into two stations. The town of Pradollano at 2000m and the Borreguiles station at 2500m. The ski lifts take you up to 3000m, just below the top of Veleta. In summer, July and August, the lifts are open again for hikers, cyclists and downhill cyclists.

Gravel Cycling - Road - Mountain Bike - Downhill - Electric bikes

The country house is a perfect base for cycling with beautiful trails for MTB, gravel bike, road, with or without a guide, with gps or just a map.

Horse back riding

In the mountains, near the town, is the beautiful Las Encinillas farmhouse, where Víctor runs an equestrian center in his family's old farmhouse. You can make a trip from 1 hour to several days in Sierra Nevada. Victor also speaks English.

Granada and Alhambra

Güéjar Sierra is located right next to Granada. Granada is a very old city and lived for many years under Arab rule. The most spectacular part of Granada is the Alhambra. The Alhambra is the fortress and palace where many Moorish monarchs lived. It is absolutely necessary to book tickets in advance.

Guéjar Sierra

At more than 1000 meters of altitude, on the northwest slope of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, is the typical mountain village Güéjar Sierra and the spectacular Embalse de Canales at its feet. A deep Muslim heritage has made Güéjar Sierra one of the benchmarks for natural and active tourism in the country. The farmhouse is situated on the border of the village.

National and Natural Parc Sierra Nevada

The Sierra Nevada National and Natural Park has the highest peak in Spain: Mulhacén (3,482 meters). Sierra Nevada was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1986, then a Natural Park in 1989, and was finally recognized as a National Park in 1999.

Sustainability and Preservation

Natural spaces are spaces dedicated to natural conservation, to the sustainable development of society and to being the destination, with increasing frequency, of leisure for all visitors. Sierra Nevada, as a sensitive space, with a vulnerable ecosystem, requires everyone's collaboration. That is why some orientation sheets are presented for good behavior in the natural space.
