Situated in 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. The large private terrace has stunning views and there is a swimming pool to keep cool. The area is ideal for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers; a trip to the amazing Alhambra Palace in Granada makes a great day out from Valor.

The space
The 1 bedroom apartment is spacious, light and airy.
There is a large open plan salon/dining area with seating for 4 guests. The sofa in the sitting area is a futon so the apartment can easily sleep 4.
We offer a large and varied collection of books, as well as English language Videos and a machine to play them, Spanish Tv and WiFi internet. We can provide an iPod dock or radio-cassette player too. Even CDs if you need them.
The fully fitted kitchen has typically Alpujarran wooden cupboards, granite work tops, gas hob and electric oven - everything you require to prepare and cook a full meal, should you want to. However the free tapas in the village bars will usually be enough. The kitchen also includes a new washing machine and fridge-freezer.
There is a separate bedroom with double bed and plenty of built-in storage.
Throughout the apartment are many original features such as chestnut beams and stone walls. It is a quiet, cool place to stay.
There is direct access to a private south-facing terrace with plenty of space for dining al fresco and sunbathing. Steps lead from the terrace to a 7m x4m swimming pool surrounded by vines and planted areas with many roses and other fragrant plants. There is a healthy herb garden which you are free to help yourself from if cooking for yourselves.
The pool offers shady and sunny spots to enjoy the amazing views and sunsets - perhaps with a glass of wine from one of the local prize-winning bodegas.

Location

Válor, Andalucía, Spain

Cantarranas is one of the oldest barrios in Valor; the property is on the edge of the village with rustic land around and few neighbours. At the same time it is just a few minutes walk to all the amenities - 2 small supermarkets with fresh bread daily, a bank with ATM, a pharmacy and those all important bars and restaurants. Valor has a fantastic Fiesta every September where one of the final battles between the Moors and Christians is re-enacted. It's 4 days of music, entertainment and an emotionally charged programme of activities including a moving nighttime procession from the church which visits each part of the village, accompanied by some of the best fireworks I've seen since Sydney Harbour 1999!

We are around 2 hours from Granada where the Alhambra Palace is a must see. It recently narrowly missed out on becoming one of the Modern Wonders of the World. You can easily spend a day just wandering around the city, taking a drink and free tapa, admiring the architecture, listening to some flamenco in Bib Rambla ..... The options are endless.
Should you want to dip your toes in the Mediterranean we are only 50 minutes from the coast and an equal journey in the other direction will take you to the snowline of Puerto de la Ragua.
There's plenty to do but many guests just hang around the village, recharging their batteries, reading by the pool and watching the eagles fly overhead. The choice is yours.
