Property description

El Tinao is a new townhouse in the heart of the unspoiled village of Canar. The house is unique in the village, being the only property that retains a 'tinao' - a feature unique to Berber architecture which connects buildings on both sides of narrow village streets. Built in the traditional Alpujarran style, El Tinao is light and spacious, with high ceilings, chestnut beams and slate stone floors throughout. There are two terraces, one for outdoor dining and a BBQ, the other with sun loungers and a heated spa. Both, of course, have those wonderful soaring views over the village, high above Orgiva and across to the Sierra Lugar. On a clear day, you can see the Rif Mountains of Morocco. It's easy to lose track of time in Canar, but don't worry - you can also see the village clock tower from the terraces. It won't help you with the day of the week, but at least you'll know when to nip out to catch the bread van for croissants in the morning!


Additional facilities: El Tinao has a TV for playing DVD/CDs, and a selection of DVDs, books and games is provided. Canar has 3 bars serving tapas and traditional Alpujarran meals. There is a pharmacy and a well-stocked grocers which even opens on Sundays! Swimming is available in Orgiva for a small charge.

Further afield: Golf - there are 2 courses within 40 minutes of Canar; one on the coast in Salobrena, the other on the near side of Granada city. Skiing - the World Championship resort of Pradollano in the Sierra Nevada is 1 hour 15 minutes from Canar, while paragliding, windsurfing and diving are available in Salobrena and Almunecar on the Costa Tropical. The historic cities of Sevilla and Cordoba are both within reach for day trips, each at approximately 3 hours' drive. Not forgetting, of course, The Alhambra Palace and Generalife gardens in Granada, and we will happily book advance tickets for guests.

Canar is a great base from which to explore La Alpujarra either on foot or by car. The famous GR7 walking route goes right through the village, with the famous spa town of Lanjaron a 2 hour walk to the west, and a glorious 200 foot waterfall (El Dique) marking the half way point to Soportujar in the east (an easy 1.5 hour walk). We provide copies of The Rough Guide to Andalucia, Jeremy Rabjohn's excellent 'Holiday Walks in The Alpujarra' and a detailed walking map which you're free to take with you whenever you're heading out.
