This small village house is tucked away just below the church and the traditional washhouse of Bubión. Built in authentic berber style, there are chestnut beams, slate ceilings, terracotta-flagged floors and whitewashed walls. It is a house of genuine character.
Although very much part of the village, you nevertheless feel hidden away from the rest of the world here. The south-facing views down the Poqueira Valley are fabulous, encompassing the rural bliss of the surrounding mountains, sweeping across a shimmering Mediterranean Sea to Morocco beyond. The walk down to Pampaneira which starts from the Church is one of the great walks of the Alpujarras.
This is a perfect base for anyone who loves mountains and nature. An intricate network of paths and tracks at all levels will satisfy walkers of every ability and inclination, and there is one of Spain's finest stables very close by (the owner lives in the village).
Local facilities are excellent - there is ample free parking at the top of the village, and shops, bars and restaurants are a stone's throw away.
Convenient bus service to and from Granada 3 times a day.
In the summer months bus service to the high mountains - base of Mulhacen.
Increible la casa y el pueblo! Muy tranquilo y la comida impresionante
Casa muy acogedora, tal y como se ve en las fotos. Hemos estado un fin de semana de mucho frío y tiene muy buena calefacción y una coqueta chimenea, datos a tener muy en cuenta.
La llegada fue muy bien, al igual q la estancia, con todo lo necesario para estar cómodos.
El mejor sitio posible sí vas buscando tranquilidad, silencio y disfrutar de paseos por el campo.
Buena cama!! Y además admite mascota, así que perfecto.
Evas place is the perfect getaway for anyone looking for nature and solitude without it being completely reclusive. I stayed 11 nights in the house working on a book and it was the perfect spot for contemplation and working quietly. From the corner upstairs I had an amazing and inspiring view over the mountains and the sea. The house is lovely decorated and well-equipped, even with a small supply of emergency food, olive oil and spices (something not all houses have). I've often been freezing coming to Spanish houses in the winter but thanks to great gas heater and the lovely fire place I didnt freeze at all.
The house is located at the bottom of Bubión and getting up and down is a good daily exercise. There is plenty of parking at the top of the village. Getting down to the house is nothing for the weak or high-healed. In the surroundings you find some of the best hikes in Southern Spain. The house has plenty of information on hiking and different sites. The village has a couple of restaurants and bars but neighboring villages have more to offer. You can do beautiful walks to the neighboring villages. I warmly recommend people who are looking for something genuine to stay at Eva's place. I for myself hope to be back to do some more writing!
Una casa preciosa en un lugar increíble.
A la casa no le falta nada y la anfitriona fue muy amable con nosotros.
Aconsejo mucho esta casa para pasar unos días en la Alpujarra.
For us, this was the first time we have an accommodation rented through airbnb. And is definitely worth repeating. This cottage by Eva was very nicely decorated and was therefore a pleasure to stay here. The environment was also very special. The only thing I want to mention that it is not recommended for people who are difficult to leg and ladies who are used to walk in high heels!
What a fantastic place. We don't have a single complaint about our stay in Bubion at Eva's cozy apartment. Lovingly decorated, with all the essentials, comfortable bed, fireplace, washing machine and best of all, the view off the top balcony at sunset (you can see Africa on a clear night!). This place is quiet, private and perfectly situated for hikes to the nearby towns. Highly recommended.
Notes to future renters: the apartment is at the bottom of a steep hill - we had heavy backpacks and getting back UP the hill at the end of our stay was sweat-inducing!
The walk/hike guide books in the basket are to be trusted at your own risk. We attempted a short circular route (in the small green book) which was not well marked and lost the trail. A particularly nice hike is Capiliera - Trevelez with a 5:30pm bus back to Bubion.
This is a great place to stay if you want to explore upper Alpujarra. It is extremely clean and comfortable and it has everything you might need for a short and longer term stay. Eva was responding promptly to our questions when we were organising our trip and provided all necessary information. We highly recommend this place and would come again for sure!
Lovely, rustic property and kind and informative host. Perfect place to unwind and get away from it all in quiet village location. Ideal for ( hill) walkers.
We loved Bubion, quieter and less touristy than neighboring villages. La Casilla was very comfortable and charming, an easy place to feel instantly at home.
We absolutely LOVED everything about this experience in the Alpujaras and about Eva's place in the village of Bubion!
First, the location: Bubion is an authentic and beautiful white village in the very special and interesting region of the Alpujaras. It's quiet, and from there, you can take several beautiful walks to neighbouring villages and to the mountains.
Then the guests: we were very nicely welcomed by Eva's son who was very helpful during our trip.
Finally, the house itself mixes both the warm atmosphere and the comfort of a place nested in the mountains, while the top floor offers a beautiful view on the surrounding mountains.
A special mention for the super comfortable bed.
We definitely recommend it if you wish to rest, discover a less known (but authentic) part of Andalucia, eat amazing jamon y queso, drink tasteful wines and enjoy a few walks in the nature.
