Condo/Apartment
Situated in one of the oldest barrios of the pretty, historic village of Valor the apartment is a tranquil haven in Las Alpujarras. It has been renovated retaining original rustic features - stone walls and chestnut beams -but with all the comforts of modern convenience - hydro-shower and fitted kitchen. La Casa Francesa has a large private terrace with stunning views to the Mediterranean and is located within the Sierra Nevada National Park. The area is ideal for walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers or those who simply want to relax and enjoy the views. We have a swimming pool with shaded and sunny areas, open in the summer months, which is for the use of Casa Francesa guests and is shared only with the owners. We are growing vines for our own wine and keep chickens for fantastic fresh eggs....Situated in one of the oldest barrios of the pretty, historic village of Valor the apartment is a tranquil haven in Las Alpujarras.

Valor is famous throughout Spain as the place where the final battles between the Moors and Christians were fought; these are re-enacted every September during our Fiesta along with lots of amazing fireworks, dancing in the square and a night-time procession through the village with the men carrying the patron saint aloft. We are in the province of Granada and a visit there is a must to see the Alhambra Palace and it´s gardens. The Sierra Nevada ski resort is close by too. We are only 30 minutes from Puerto de la Ragua which has snow for many months of the year and offers a variety of activities from Cross Country Skiing and Husky Rides in the winter to fantastic walks for the summer - when the cooler air can be a pleasant respite from the Spanish summer. Closer to Valor there are prize-winning bodegas where a tour is followed by a long tasting of their produce - always a favourite with our guests.

If you ever wanted to have a genuine rock in your living room, this is the place to go. The apartment is in the ground floor of a traditional building, typical for a "pueblo blanco" of the Alpujarras, and it has been renovated/restored using traditional...More
