The first apartment opens into a kitchen dining room, again with French doors to the South elevation, off the kitchen there is an archway through to the sitting room, with French doors to the South so plenty of light floods in. To the rear of the sitting room there is a door to the double bedroom , this has French doors opening into an interior patio, this is large space, has a nice shady area with pergola.
There is also a door from this apartment to the attic. This is a very large space and could be renovated to provide more living accommodation.

An archway leads from the sitting room into a kitchen dining room, this also has french doors to the South elevation. Off this room there is access to the family bathroom and large double bedroom, again with French doors.
The property was originally two houses, now connected together. It would be relatively straightforward to separate them again. (permission would need to be sought from the town hall)
Mains electricity, water and drainage are connected. Internet is available from several local suppliers.
Granada is a 50 minute drive away. Another 30 minutes take you to the ski resort of Sierra Nevada. Skiing is possible between December and May. The highest lifts take you up to 3.400 metres and from there one enjoys unforgettable views of Granada and right across the Med to Africa.
The Moors lived until the end of the 16th century in the Alpujarras. We not only still use their water channels and water deposits, but their original arabic names too. A proposal has recently been submitted to declare the Alpujarras a UNESCO world heritage site.
Hiking is pure pleasure here. It takes a 20 minute car drive to reach the borders of the National Park of Sierra Nevada. You can watch eagles circle in the blue skies, see ibexes fearlessly cross the cliffs above you and feel part of the magnificence of untouched nature all around.
