You have discovered the hideaway.... nestling 1000m up in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, this superb fully restored Cortijo is surrounded by its own 28 acre plot of Alpujarran Countryside, including fruit and olive groves where you can enjoy the simpler pace of life still enjoyed in this beautiful region of Andalucia.

Surrounded by breathtaking views and many walking trails, just 35 mins from the typically Spanish beach resort of La Rabita and even within striking distance of the Sierra Nevada Skiing area, you will be perfectly located for almost anything that takes your fancy.
This part of Andalucia is celebrated for its reliable sunshine record. Historic cities like Granada are within easy reach, and the gastronomic landscape is also well worth serious exploration.
- Set amidst beatiful scenery with many local walks - "Cuatro vientos" Bodega a bar/restaurant and winery of very high reputation is just 10 minutes away, providing the ultimate in true Alpujarran cuisine and hospitality in a wonderful setting.- Cadiar, the local "hub", a vibrant mountain town where, at fiesta time, the local fountain provides wine instead of water!- Sierra Nevada - at only 1hr 30 distant, you can realistically add in a couple of days skiing to a stay between December and March- Or, if you want to get away from it all, ignore all the above, fill up at the shops in Murtas when you arrive, close the gate and relax....

Local Property Notes:

is the way of life here. You are spoilt for choice in this region - with the local "Cuatro Vientos" Bodega serving everything from local snails and of course, wonderful Jamon Serrano through to complete mixed grills of locally reared meats that you can wash down with remarkably good "Vino de la tierra" (lit. wine from the land) you really dont need to go far from Ranchito to eat extremely well.

But then you would miss the great Paellas on offer down on the Costa Tropical, just a short drive away. This is the coast the Spanish holiday at, and the variety and quality of food on offer reflects the passion they have for good food...try the "chirringuitos" (Barbeque shacks) on the promenade at La Rabita to experience Spanish al fresco dining as it should be...

If you get the chance - try the Parrillada (fish mixed grill) at the Pension in Isleta del Moro, down by Cabo de Gata. Sitting on the dockside, right next to the ocean as the lights twinkle across the bay, the spot is hard to beat....when the food arrives, make that nigh on impossible.

The Alpujarras are awash with stunning drives and walks. Every corner has views to take your breath away. every village a relaxing bar to sit and drink the cold local beer and tapas. ( Superb local homemade tapas here still come free with a beer or coke, which is always a pleasant surprise the first time it happens!)

Pick fruit from our trees dripping with sunburst peaches and figs for your breakfast, or ripe tomatoes from the veg patch, soak up the sun on the vast private patio or wander through the some of the 28 acres surrounding your vacation villa of a lifetime before you start your days touring. A slow drive to the coast to explore some of the unspoilt, undiscovered local coves and beaches

Drive out to explore the local towns and villages in the Alpujarras, many of which come alive when other European towns are going to bed!

Try Cadiar, twenty minutes away, with its hidden backstreets of bars and restaurants, an artists studio as well as amenities such as a pharmacy and optician, or browse the furniture stores and little local shops offering Alpujarran products.

Murtas, winding steep streets, just wide enough for the intrepid explorer in you, nestled round the large church in the crook of a sunsoaked valley, is only 15 minutes away. Drive there for a dip in the municipal pool if you fancy a change, a beer or cafe con leche in one of the Spanish bars and just sit and listen to the tolling church bell. Watch life go by as it has done for centuries. Dont miss a day trip to Granada, its fascinating history a must for every southern Spanish visitor ( and home of good winter skiing, if youre thinking slightly more out of season). Also within driving range are some of the best golf courses in Europe, as well as Marbella and Puerto Banus for the real poseurs among you, ok, us! Whatever your reason for coming to stay at Ranchito, we will make it a time to remember for you for all the very best reasons... we fell head over heels in love at first sight with this beautiful villa... we want you to come back time and again and tell us the same!!
