Parking is available 30 meters from the house but a car can be brought to within a few meters of the gate for loading and unloading.
Please be aware that the village streets are steep making this property unsuitable for anyone with limited mobility.
The picturesque village of Torvizcon nestles at the foot of Las Alpujarras. An unspoilt traditional Spanish farming village where you are as likely to meet a mule as a motor car! Situated one hour from Granada and 45 minutes from the coast, culture, countryside, beaches and skiing are all within easy reach.
With a population of just under 1000, the village has 4 bars plus a hotel and pension, both of which serve meals. There are also 3 small supermarkets, bakery, butchers, fishmongers and a weekly vegetable stall enabling you to do all your shopping without leaving the village. The travelling market visits on the 1st and 16th of every month with a selection of clothing, plants, nuts & olives etc. For a wider range of shops and a bustling Thursday market, the town of Orgiva is just 20 kilometres away. The village pool is open during the months of July and August and there are numerous fiestas throughout the year, the largest of these being the St Antonio Abad (fiesta of fire) in January.
You are surrounded by magnificent views of the Sierra Nevada and Contraviersa mountain ranges with walking up the Torvizcon Rambla and along the Rio Guadalfeo on your doorstep. For the more adventurous, Mulhacen is close at hand.
Popular with Spanish tourists but as yet relatively undiscovered by other nationalities, Torvizcon is an extremely friendly pueblo blanco and an ideal place to observe and enjoy the traditional Spanish way of life.
There is a municipal open air swimming pool in the village, approx 10 mins walk, which is open during July and August.
The private relaxation pool is not designed for swimming but can comfortably accommodate 4 people lounging with a glass of wine!
There are woodburning stoves in both the kitchen and living room should you wish to book the property out of season.
We ask that you confine smoking to the living room and outdoor areas of the property.
The village streets are steep and uneven making the property unsuitable for the elderly or infirm.
