Property and local area description
Welcome to the little house with a big view! Casita Buena Vista is set in a picturesque rural lane in the enchanting alpujarran village of Bubión, dramatically perched on the edge of the Poqueira Gorge with spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada, the Alpujarras and the Mediterranean Sea.
The casita is of traditional construction with terracotta tiled floors, chestnut beamed ceilings and a large wood burning fireplace. It has been designed to stay cool in the heat of the summer and retain the warmth within on chilly winter days. This studio apartment is comfortably furnished and has a double bed in a sleeping alcove, and double sofa bed and dining table in the lounge area. The bathroom has a bath with shower attachment, and wc. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, four-ring gas hob, electric oven, toaster and kettle. Bathroom towels, bed linen an electric oil radiator, fan, hairdryer and radio are provided. There is also a washing machine, clothes drying rack and ironing facilities. Two French doors lead out onto the partially covered west-facing balcony, offering inspirational views of the village and mountains beyond. The property is not suitable for children or pets.
The main attraction of the region is its inspirational beauty, peace and tranquility. It is situated on the edge of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park and UNESCO Biosphere reserve, so is a spectacular hiking destination. There are walking routes sign posted from the villages. Routes range from short strolls to full-day hikes and two long distance routes. Organised tours are available as well as other activities like horse riding, mountain biking, cañoning, climbing, bird-watching and paragliding. We are also within 1 ½ hour drive of the Sierra Nevada ski area. A small, but fascinating museum, Casa Alpujarreña, housing artifacts from times gone by can be found in the main plaza alongside the church.
