Cortijo Opazo, a restored farm house, offers two well furnished holiday apartments within a beautiful garden and surrounded by fabulous mountain scenery. Close to local villages and an ideal base from which to enjoy walking in the Sierra Nevada.
El Lujar - a charming garden apartment provides self catering accommodation for two people in one double bedroom.
This well equipped holiday rental has two sets of french windows leading from a private courtyard patio into the light and airy open plan living area. Here you will find a comfortable two seater sofa, large dining table and chairs, side table, coffee table, book shelf and log burning stove. There is a television that receives Spanish TV only, but can also be used to play CDs and DVDs.
Wi Fi is available free of charge.
The kitchen is fitted with cupboards, full sized oven, glass ceramic hob with four rings, overhead extractor fan and full sized fridge. Plates, cutlery etc. are provided for at least four people and there is an extensive range of cooking equipment. The kitchen is tiled with ceramics in traditional local designs, and is clean and modern. It has a window that faces east and allows the morning light to flood in.
Next to the kitchen there is a door leading to the bathroom. This has a sink, W.C. and walk in 'wet room' style shower fitted with a Oxygene power shower. It is fully tiled with shelves, hooks, mirrors, towel rails and a cupboard provided. The bathroom also has an east facing window with frosted glass.
From the sitting room a door leads into a good sized bedroom with a double bed (200cms x 150cms), two side tables with lamps, a chest of drawers, a built in wardrobe, a well stocked bookshelf and an armchair. An east facing window looks out onto the surrounding hillside.
El Lujar has its own private courtyard with flowering potted plants. There is a small covered area just outside the door which leads directly onto a patio, part covered by a pergola, which is for the exclusive use of guests staying in El Lujar. The patio has open views across the garden towards the Rio Bermejo, to the village of Pitres and further to the high summit of El Lujar - on a clear day the Mediterranean sea can be glimpsed way down in the valley. The patio has full sun all day whilst the west facing courtyard offers a perfect location to enjoy the setting sun. Shady areas are provided by a pergola covered in wisteria and grape vines. The private outdoors spaces lead on to the large communal garden where you will be sure to find your favourite, secluded spot. Tables, chairs and sun loungers are provided to allow guests to take full advantage of the outdoor spaces.
Throughout the accommodation the floors have been finished in warm terracota ceramic tiles. There is an underfloor heating system in all areas, the use of which is included in the rental. During most of the year the days are warm enough for t-shirts and light clothing but since the area is mountainous the evenings and early mornings in the cooler months can be chilly and we have found the heating system invaluable. The log burning stove is provided as a cosy luxury and a quantity of logs will be supplied.
El Lujar is ideal for two people.
The two holiday rentals are completely independent of each other and have separate entrances and private outdoor seating areas. In addition there is a large garden for all guests to share.

Pets (dogs) are allowed is we are notified in advance, but we ask for a deposit of €80 in cash on arrival which we will return to you at the end of your stay, all being well.
We have lived in the Alpujarras since 2003. When not looking after our guests we spend most of the time working in the garden, cultivating plants and vegetables, or walking in the mountains here with our two dogs. A simple existence perhaps, but we work hard and try to lead a relatively low impact lifestyle. We also enjoy spending time at the laid back coastal town of La Herradura, on the Costa Tropical coast of Granada.
