About the neighbourhood
The area of Las Alpujarras is very authentic with occasional sheep heard and donkeys strolling around. The closest small farm below also has a wide variety of animals like Donkeys, turkeys, labs, a pig , cats and dogs. The people in the village is open hearty and friendly. There is a Doctor, pharmacy, public summer pool, two supermarkets, 5-10 restaurants(depending on season) in Valor only 1,5 km away from the house. The area is a walkers paradise with plenty of nice walks in the vicinity
Getting around
A car is a necessity but the closest restaurants are within walking distance. There are busses passing the village to all directions daily.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Almeria : 88.0 km
Railway: Guadix: 58.0 km
Ferry: Almeria: 88.0 km
Coming from Malaga I usually recommend the Mediterranean Highway all the the way to Adra, ( take third exit saying Adra Berja A-347), from Berja Direction Alcolea and Ugijar. and from Ugijar towards Valor. Mary will meet you in Mecina and guide you to the house. Prepare for a narrow road through the village and 500 meters of dirt-track. I you come from Almeria the best route is to go towards Berja from El Ejido.

There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, Nearest Beach: 60.0 km.
