Just south of the Moorish city of Granada, the Lecrin valley is a lush fertile valley planted with groves of orange, lemon and almond trees and is situated at the foothills of the impressive Sierra Nevada mountain range. Perfect as a holiday destination, there is the wonderful countryside, the historic city of Granada, Moorish villages, terraced hillsides of the Alpujaurras and beaches of the Costa Tropical all within a half hours drive. The nearby villages of Mondujar and Talara will provide you with all the necessary local amenities. These include a pharmacy, three mini markets, three banks with cash machines, a post office, two petrol stations, a primary school and an outdoor swimming pool, open during July and August. There are several bars where you can enjoy a drink with free tapas or breakfast of coffee and tostada. For a meal out, there are two restaurants in which you can sample the local specialities.
Driving times to our Casa Rural are about 1.5 hours from Malaga, 35 mins from Granada airport, 20 minutes to Granada city and 30 minutes to the Costa Tropical.
My partner and I came out to Spain in 2011 with our then 2 year old daughter. At a time when the Euro zone was in the middle of the crisis there were quite a few raised eyebrows on our decision to go for it. Nevertheless we believed it was now or never, it was the right time for us so we took the plunge and left by boat from Portsmouth harbour with a car packed to the ceiling and roof box bulging!.... and so the adventure began....
After a year travelling with our small child and a tent around Spain we finally settled on the region we previously knew and fell in love with years ago... Granada, el Valle de Lecrin and Las Alpujarras. With the white washed villages, Moorish architecture, pulsing flamenco, Spanish guitar, gastronomic cuisine, tapas culture and not to mention the breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada mountains, we couldn't find a better place in which to settle down and set up our guesthouse. Casita de la Vaca was previously used (by our neighbour) to house cows and has since had a total renovation retaining some interesting original features in relation to its previous use. Lovingly restored we are proud to welcome you to our home and look forward to your visit in the future.
Why we think you should come and stay with us?.....On the edge of the Sierra Nevada national park you can enjoy amazing mountain views, in fact you can walk from our front door straight up to the GR7 walkers route which traverses Europe. Whilst we enjoy a rural location we have excellent road links being within 1 km of the A44 Granada-Motril road. You can therefore reach the Alhambra and Granada city in 20 minutes, Lanjaron and Las Alpujarras in 10 minutes and the beaches of the Costa Tropical; Salobrena, Almunecar and La Herradura are all between 20-35 minutes drive away. At Casita de la Vaca our aim is to provide our guests with good value quality accommodation so our prices are for room rate only. We provide access to a communal fridge and food preparation area so you can prepare your own breakfast/ light supper or eat out at one of the many local bars or restaurants.
