Rural House, Heated Pool, WIFI, Spectacular Views +5 STAR Reviews in TripAdvisor

Overview

Property

Updated: 21-Nov-2016
Built by the Moors, restored with love, care and respecting its heritage.

Casa Aloe is situated minutes from the Sierra Nevada National Park and all it has to offer.

For more info and photos PLEASE SEE: www.albaholidaylets.com

The house's views are uninterrupted, of the entire valley all the way to the coast. Being at the house feels as if we are alone for miles, very secluded and peaceful, yet with an Andalusian village and its culture just behind us.

Atalbeitar is very well preserved, and an experience! it's as if you returned to the moorish times…very romantic. It also has ancient donkey lanes that make it a car-free village, peaceful, safe and a paradise for children's games.

The house has been recently restored using traditional materials in original ways, with beauty and comfort in mind.

Chestnut beams, bedrock corners and many unique touches give an original charm.

We, Tom and Carmen ( the owners) are both artists, and have delighted the last 10 winters restoring this jewel with all our love and care, and so we are very happy when people come to enjoy our work.

Get cosy beside the open fire, eat out on the terrace with the impressive valley beneath you, explore our games, or just relax and read a book.

Or swim in the lovely pool by the garden patio, shady and plant-filled to escape the heat of the midday summer sun. In the colder months the pool is heated, wonderful after a good long walk.

It has a hydro-massage and swimming against the current system.

There is a Barbecue available for your use.

Enjoy the cultural experience of an Andalusian village, whilst having the peace and quiet of a rural retreat if you so wish.

In the evenings explore the variety of restaurants and bars in La Taha, where the tradition is to give a free Tapa with every drink, and where often you can catch an evening of local music.

The villages of Ferreirola, Mecina, Fondales, Portugos, Pitres and Busquistar are all very close to Atalbeitar, between 15 and 30 minutes walk in different directions by the Moorish paths.

They all have great character and charm. Very worth of a visit and an extremely beautiful walk.

This place is a walkers heaven.

About the Owner

We are two artists and live in the house half of the year, we adore this place and are delighted when people come to enjoy it.

We started restoring it in 2004 and it has taken us 12 winters of hard work to get it to a high standard. Because we have put so much love and care in the house we feel we will never let go of it! come and experience life in this magical corner of the world.

Formidable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette maison des Alpujarras. Le site est magnifique, les randonnées sont accessibles depuis le gîte (GR) pour visiter les villages blancs. Ravitaillement facile et agréable à proximité. La maison est décorée avec beaucoup de soin et malgré son aspect rustique tout fonctionne parfaitement et est très confortable. Seuls petits bémols qui ne nous ont pas dérangé mais qu'il faut peut-être signaler : l'eau du robinet est ferrugineuse et a un goût prononcé qui surprend et la maison présente de nombreuses marches entre les différentes pièces ce qui pourrait être inconvénient avec de très jeunes enfants ou des personnes ayant du mal à se déplacer. Pour nous (2 familles avec grands enfants) cela n'a fait qu'ajouter à son charme. Bref, un bonheur.

The most exciting house in the Alpujarras

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well located in Atalbeitar,a little village in the middle of the Alpujarras.It's an authentique old village house with a lot's of charm and a large facing south terrace without opposie.It's a pleasure to eat on the terrace with a marvelous panoramic lanscape.

A lot of hikings are avaible from the house without need to take the car.

It was really nice holidays !

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Granada, or Malaga (155Km), or Almeria (133km) at 94 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Atalbeitar Social Club at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Malaga at 140 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Los Moriscos Club de Golf at 57 Kilometres Nearest Train : Granada at 77 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : E-902 at 38 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Pradollano, Granada at 103 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Salobreña at 50 Kilometres Car: recommended

The nearest airport is Granada at 93 km. There's also Almeria's airport and Malaga Airport at 151 Km:

(Check Easyjet, Thompson fly, and Ryan Air, BMI, jet 2, to name a few of the airlines serving Malaga).

There is a public bus service serving the village of Pitres (2 km away) and a taxi service takes you from there to Atalbeitar. From Pitres and to Pitres there are 3 buses/day connecting it with Orgiva or Granada or Motril, which in turn have connections to the major cities.

But we recommend hiring a car to be able to appreciate fully what the area has to offer.

This is easily organised over the internet, (google search 'Car Hire Malaga/ Granada Airport)

In Atalbeitar:

In the hot days you can find along the many streams charming pools where to bathe!

There are many wonderful spots to visit, the Old Mosque , the old springs, one of which has fizzy water, the ancient Roman bridge... the amazing peaks around us, the waterfalls, and the many Fiestas in our village and the villages nearby. Also in those nearby villages you'll enjoy free tapas of the local cousine with each drink you buy!

Salobrena is 56 km away, an old Moorish coastal town with sandy beaches, good fish restaurants and an impressive cliff-top castle. A short distance from there and you can find all manner of hidden coves, beaches and villages to explore.

Almunecar is 68 km away, this is another historic coastal town that offers it all. Including a magnificent Flee Market every Sunday morning till 2pm.

Granada is 78 km away, with its fascinating historic centre, the Alhambra palace, 'hammams' (Turkish baths), the old Moorish quarter Albaizin and superb shopping.

Pitres, another white jewel is 3km by road, or a pleasant 2 km cross-country walk and it is our nearest centre, with all amenities...Market day on Fridays, bank, supermarket, bakery, bars and restaurants, and an open air swimming pool surrounded by grass lawns and fine views where there are often shows.

Ferreirola, Mecina, Fondales and Portugos are small villages all very close to Atalbeitar, between 15 and 30 minutes of delightful walk in different directions by the Moorish paths. They all have great character and charm. They are very worth visiting and a gorgeous walk.
