Cortijo Opazo

Overview
Farmhouse -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Portugos, Province of Granada, Andalucia
Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains of southern Spain, Cortijo Opazo offers a perfect holiday destination if you are looking for beautiful scenery, relaxing surroundings and an area that is rich in cultural history. The region is known as 'Las Alpujarras' and is an enchanting part of Spain. Treasured by the Moors as a paradise location this mountainous area is situated between the summits of the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean coast of the Costa del Sol. As a holiday destination it is ideal for walking, cycling, riding, photography, painting and the appreciation of flowers and wildlife; but most of all for just unwinding and taking time out. It is within easy striking distance of the historical city of Granada with its fabulous Alhambra Palace, yet is close enough to the coast to enjoy a well deserved day l... Read more

About the neighbourhood
The Alpujarras is a wonderful place for a holiday and for relaxing generally. It is ideal for walking and offers a vast range of options from challenging high level snow line walks to casual meanderings around the valley. Wherever you go you are accompanied by the sound of water, either from the racing Rio Trevelez and Rio Poqueira, or from the innumerable irrigation channels delivering water to the cultivated land. It is a unique area, treasured by the Moors until they were expelled by the Christians in the 15th century, and still shows many signs of their occupation. Most notably the style of Berber architecture, little white box houses with flat grey roofs supported by sturdy chestnut timbers.

Getting around
Most guests choose to hire a car and this is the easiest way to reach us and to travel around and see the sights. Car hire is reasonable economical in Spain. There is a bus service to the area from Granada which runs three times a day. With careful planning it is possible to arrive here on a bus from Granada or Malaga, and since the shops are only a short walk from the Cortijo (1.5km) it is possible to enjoy a relaxing holiday here without a car - many of our in house walks start and finish at Cortijo Opazo.

Where are we?

The Alpujarras is situated in Andalucia, between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the coast of southern Spain. Cortijo Opazo can be found high in the Alpujarras between Pitres and Pórtugos, amongst a collection of villages called 'La Taha'. The house is situated on a steep hill leading down from the village of Portugos to the village of Atalbeitar. Access to the door is by public highway, and whilst the road is not in top condition you don't need to drive along a track or unmade surface. The nearest large town is Orgiva, about 25kms south west of us.
