Interaction with guests

Polopos is a magical quiet and authentic white washed village wich are specific to the Alpujarras. Here you'll find farmers working their land with mules in the old fashioned way. Life here is lived at a slow pace with respect for nature, culture, and one another. Next to the local wine museum, a second bar and a church the village has up to now no other facilities.
Locals will welcome you and at the bar, we sell local products, handicrafts and have essential needs available. Throughout the week, local mobile suppliers will sell their fresh food like bread (daily), fruits, vegetables, fish meat and household products on the street.
Surrounded by unspoiled nature, pine- and cork oak forests, wine fields, and almond farms this beautifully positioned place is perfect to relax or keep as a base for adventurous hikes, romantic picknicks or discovering the culture and activity rich area.
La Mamola, Polopos' sister village on the coast is an active small beach town with a few shops, supermarkets, (beach) bars a bank and pharmacy for your essential needs and relaxing by the sea. Servicing mainly locals and Spanish tourists. Every Thursday morning there is a market on the boulevard.
Centrally located in 'the middle of nowhere'
Up until late 2015, both villages were not connected by the new and impressive A7 highway leading all the way from Gibraltar to Barcelona and the Autovía de Sierra Nevada to Granada and beyond. Before the area was nearly cut off from the rest of Spain and has been mainly dependent on agriculture which has kept the area the most authentic of Andalucia. The 20-minute connection to nearby vivid port town Motril with multiple ferries to Morocco and with majestic Granada within a 45 minutes drive now this quiet area is suddenly positioned at a crossroad of main connections.
Gateway to The Alpujarras, Costa Tropical, and the Sierra Nevada
Although you will feel like being on top or at the end of the world Polopos' is perfectly and centrally positioned to discover Granada's highlights and three of Spain's major natural parks and the Sierra Nevada ski resort (snow from December up till May) A perfect stop and resting place in your journey through Andalucia.
