Casa Carole - Apartment With Pool And Wonderful Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 09-Nov-2016
Apartment in Bubion, High Alpujarras, Las Alpujarras Andalucia, Spain Within The Quaint Mountain Village Of Bubion

Casa Carole is a newly refurbished, designer, 3 bedroom apartment at the entrance to the pretty village of Bubion in the heart of the High Alpujarra, Andalucia, Spain. This is a large spacious apartment which has been refurbished and decorated to the highest standard and has lovingly blended the luxury of modern day life whilst maintaining the traditional Alpujarranean architectural features.The apartment has access to a large shared swimming pool and offers 3 double bedrooms, (one en-suite) , one large family bathroom, a spacious kitchen and dining area and a very spacious living room - for convenience all on one floor. The apartment also offers WiFi, and central heating. There are fantastic views of the Poquiera Valley from the apartment and onward views to the coast and on a clear autumn/winter day you can see the Mediterranean and the Riff Mountains off the African Coast. Activities available on your doorstep are: swimming, horse riding, cycling, walking. The swimming pool is large and there is ample room for sunbathing. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in Bubion and the nearby village of Capileira.

The Barranco del Poqueira is one of the most visited natural spaces in the province of Granada. This impressive ravine in the southern slope of Sierra Nevada range, descending from the Veleta peak, has three beautiful villages on its mountain hillside- Capileira, Bubion and Pampaneira. Bubion has the main characteristics of the villages of the Alpujarra region, that is, a singular architecture of the houses, perfectly adapted to the rugged ground and the climate of the area. They are built along narrow streets with a touch of their Moorish past. The village dates back to Roman times but is perhaps more famous for its Moorish origins. Hence the classic architecture of the village, identical to Berber originals in the Atlas mountains of Northern Africa. Characterised by flat roofs and prominent chimney pots, the houses spill down the steep mountainside, connected by little walkways and a narrow, winding, cobbled street with lively restaurants and bars.

Inside it's beautiful, spacious & well equipped. But dark, no terrace & too near noisy road.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday due to the stunning mountains and the 3 small villages, of which Bubion is in the middle, with lovely restaurants, tapas and souvenir shops. The locals were all friendly, helpful and appreciated my basic Spanish. Sadly though, there was not much help offered in trying to find things to do. We have two active boys who loved the pool but this was up several flights of steps and was not open during the siesta time. We spent a day looking for a river to picnic by and play in, but couldn't locate it. We drove to the ancient city of Granada but the heat there got to all of us and was too much for my ailing parents and boys. We had to ask for clean linen rather than this being done as a matter of course. There was no contact made with us by the owners to check everything was OK or to offer advice, inform of local events etc. So we missed one of the many fiestas and a fish delivery. We found, through Trip Advisor, a Tea Garden in Orgiva run by an English family which was delightful.

All in all, we wanted a truly Spanish get away up in the Alpujaren mountains which is what we got. It was very good value for a well appointed apartment but feel too much time was spent sitting in it rather than enjoying the environment and culture.

Owner's Response: Danielle, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Carol in Bubion from 1st to 12th August. I am sorry to hear that you didn’t feel that you received enough attention. It is our normal practice to meet and greet new guests and inform them about the house and address any questions they may have. I met you at 0100 in the morning when you arrived after a very long day and night travelling and settled you in with the understanding that I would return the following morning and we would go through the things that you needed to know about the house and I would show you to the swimming pool. This we did, and I left you with the understanding that you could call me if you had any problems in relation to the house or if you had questions. When we did visit the pool I did mention the fact the pool is not available between 1530-1700 which is the rule of the urbanization and the pool is shared amongst the houses there, so we have to abide by the rules. I did suggest that you might find it easier to bring the car up to set people down there as it might be more comfortable to do that. I met you again by chance at the pool (when I was with other guests for another property) and again at the front door of Casa Carol and you did ask me about the laundry change. It is our normal practice to change bedlinen for guests who are staying for more than a week. And I text people a couple of days before that linen change to inform with them when the housekeeper will go in, as I usually check with her what time will suit her before confirming that. So apologies if you thought it wasn’t our intention to change the bedlinen, it was my failure to communicate that to you soon enough. It is not our usual practice to call on guests after the meet and greet as we try to respect our guests privacy and I leave guests with the understanding that they can come to me if they need advice/help etc but I won’t intrude on their holiday as a matter of course. Regarding the heat in August, yes it is hot in Southern Spain in August and Granada can be a challenge. In light of your comments regarding things to do, and the comment about the linen change, we will put in the information folder a list of essential things to know. For example the process regarding the linen change, the fact the national park has an office in Capileria, and anything else we feel is useful regarding the basics of the village. We’ll also put some maps and some books in the house. Thanks again for your comments.
