Walking from the door

Casa Buena Vista is ideal for walkers and ramblers, no matter how far you like to go. The village is located on the long-distance GR-7 footpath which runs across Europe from Gibraltar to Istanbul. Whilst you won't go that far, this footpath offers excellent walking opportunities up and down the Lecrin Valley - you can either start from the door, or join the footpath at various points in the valley. The are also other walks to be enjoyed around the village.

Below you will find brief details of the three most popular walks from the door of Casa Buena Vista, together with photos. Directions for the walks are included in our joining instructions for the convenience of our guests.

Walk 1 - to Albunuelas and back - 5 miles (2 hours)

If you only do one walk while you are staying at Casa Buena Vista, this has to be it, as it will show you the best characteristics of the area. Starting off steeply uphill for ten minutes, but then levelling off, through citrus and olive groves. You then walk through the gorge, winding your way towards Albunuelas, where you will find a number of bars for refreshment. You then return downhill by quiet road back to Saleres, with amazing and uninterrupted views across the Lecrin Valley towards the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Walk 2 - to Restabal, Melegis, Murchas and Lake Beznar - up to 11 miles (up to 4 hours)

This is a lovely walk over the river and through the citrus groves to the neighbouring village of Restabal, with bars, a restaurant and supermarkets. From here you could return to Saleres by quiet road  for a short 3 mile / 1 hour walk. Alternatively, you could continue through the hilly landscape to Murchas (where there is an Arabic fort) or Melegis (further bars / restaurants and views over the lake) covering a further 6miles / 2 hours return. Or, take a detour in Restabal to Lake Beznar for a cooling dip, adding another 2 miles / 40 minutes. Explore!!

Walk 3 - Views of Saleres - 2 miles+ (around 1 hour)

If you fancy a short but energetic stroll, start off along the river in Saleres, and then climb the hill opposite the village through citrus, olive and almond trees. You will be rewarded with fantastic views up and down the valley, of the Sierra Nevada mountains and aerial views of Saleres itself. Continue along the farm tracks or turn back when you have had enough.
