The Valley

The Lecrin Valley (translated as Valley of  Happiness) is a scenic, interesting and peaceful haven just away from the Costa del Sol. That said, a 15 minute drive from the cottage takes you to the Granada to Motril motorway, giving easy access to the Costa Tropical beaches, the historic city of Granada and beyond. You can therefore enjoy the best of both worlds, and get to know the real Spain into the bargain!

The Lecrin Valley is an ideal location for holiday cottages in Andalucia, Spain.

The natural beauty of the valley is provided by the hilly landscape , planted extensively with orange, lemon, almond and olive trees. This is enhanced by Lake Beznar in the bottom of the valley, which provides opportunities for walking, fishing and picnics. Dotted in every nook and cranny of the valley are traditional villages with winding narrow streets and the original white-walled houses. A truly outstanding combination.

The valley looks out onto the Sierra Nevada mountain range, whose highest peak (Malhacen) remains snow-capped between December and May which, given the valley climate, you will find hard to believe and is a stunning sight!

Most of the villages in the valley have their own bar and supermarket, and many have banks. There are numerous restaurants, a few nightclubs, a petrol station and most other goods and services that you may require on your holiday within easy reach in the valley. There are deliveries of staple groceries to the smaller outlying villages during the week, and many villages have weekly markets.

More extensive shopping and other facilities can be found in the city of Granada, including a hypermarket, which is easy to access and around 30 minutes drive away from the cottage.

Leisure activities in the valley consist mainly of exploring the local area, enjoying the bars and restaurants, walking, swimming, fishing, horse riding and relaxing into the slow pace of life. Artists and photographers will find plenty of subjects of interest, with the valley regularly being host to artistic holiday parties.

Again, more extensive activities can be found in the immediately surrounding area including golf, skiing, climbing, water sports and the usual city entertainments in Granada.
