The location of the yurt was spectacular. Just a short drive outside Granada, it was easy to find with Yair's detailed directions (though don't attempt it with GPS without the host directions, as our GPS almost took us off the side of a cliff). The yurt is situated in a beautiful olive grove. Though it was early January and cold at night (be prepared to manage a wood stove throughout the night to stay warm), the weather and view were truly spectacular.
Yair was out of town when we stayed there, but had a caretaker meet us and make daily contact to make sure everything was okay. The yurt itself was cozy and spacious; however, it could use a good dusting, as some of the decorative elements seemed they had been sitting on the shelf for just a little too long.
Overall a really positive experience off the beaten path in the olive groves of the Alpujarras.
Dear Johanna, thanks for your review and blessings on your journey.
Regards, Yair and Ziza
Staying at the yurt was great! Amazing location with greats hosts. It was extremely relaxing. I would definitely recommend staying with Yair and Ziza.
Thanks Shane. Love Yair
accueil chaleureux, description respectée, idéal pour apprécier le calme au pied de la Sierra Nevada, entre mer et montagne.
Estuvimos muy a gusto en la yurta de Yair y Ziza, es un sitio ideal para desconectar en el campo, en un lugar diferente, poder estar tranquil@ y contemplar las estrellas por la (website hidden) al baño es toda una aventura para quien no esté acostumbrado, pero merece la pena! La yurta estaba muy bien dispuesta y equipada con toallas, jabón, mantas, cojines y utensilios de cocina. Yair, Ziza y Kristi son muy amables, además Ziza cocina unos platos vegetarianos muy ricos y originales. Desde la yurta se pueden visitar los principales pueblos de la Alpujarra pero casi estábamos deseando volver a la tranquilidad del campo. Recomendamos la experiencia. Gracias!
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely Yurt a lot.
Surrounded by beautiful nature, great view over the mountains, a nice pool and small lovely villages in the neighborhood.
We recommend to enjoy a really good vegetarian meal by Ziza, the lady of the house.
Summer can be very hot during the day, but it cools down in the evening which is very comfortable.
Our six year old daughter loved the place too.
It was nice to see her explore the nature around her.
We hope to come back soon.
Dear Kirsten, many thanks for your review. Much love,
Yair and Ziza
Super lovely couple with very possitive energy. If what you are looking for is staying away from the crowds and recharge your inner batteries this is the perfect home. The food was also amazing, let youreself be treated by them.
Bon accueil dans la yourte qui est très agréable à vivre. On s'y sent un peu en-dehors du monde et en connexion totale avec la nature environnante qui est très belle.
Tout à fait charmant !
My husband and I stayed in Yair and Ziza's yurt (the bigger one of the two) for two nights during our recent trip to Spain, and everything about it was wonderful.
The two yurts and small guest house are on the same property as Yair and Ziza's house, two kilometers or less from the lovely mountain village of Lanjarón. The drive through Lanjarón to reach the yurt was stunning enough, with a climb on winding roads into the Alpujarras that brings you almost level with the blades of the huge windmills dotting the landscape. It's easy to miss the turn off the main road - the signs are pretty small - but after having to turn around once, we got it.
Yair and Ziza greeted us warmly and invited us to join in on a vegetarian dinner that evening, which we accepted. It's an extra 10 euros per person, but delicious and no doubt the healthiest meal we had during our entire vacation. : )
The property surrounding the yurt is quiet, secluded, and full of green, something we desperately needed after too much time in a bustling city. There are flowers everywhere, birds chirping, an orange tree to pick from at will, a cleverly covered swimming pool, multiple hammocks, and four fat cats on the roam. For us, that adds up to bliss.
From the yurt, we were able to take beautiful walks farther down the mountain road, passing very few houses but tons of olive, lemon, and orange trees, patches of red poppies, tiny waterfalls, and old crumbling buildings. It's also a short (though uphill) walk back to Lanjarón, where you can find the entrance to a number of hiking trails - we took a great one that brings you high into the mountains and back down into the neighboring town of Órgiva.
The yurt itself is very cute and, though spacious, cozily filled with decorations and knickknacks. We didn't have a chance to cook, but made tea on the stove every morning and helped ourselves to oranges and almonds from the bowl that was left for us. The bed was comfy, and there are plenty of blankets for the chilly nights.
Throughout our stay, Yair and Ziza were incredibly hospitable and helpful, always taking time to say hi when they came across us, but never intrusive. As we had left most of our trip unplanned, they let us use their computer for research and gave us two great recommendations for places to visit after we left the yurt (both of which turned out to be great). Yair even called up a lodge owner to ask about a booking for us.
Our time at the yurt was priceless, and we can't wait to go back. Highly, highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time staying at Yair's and Ziza's place!
The Yurt is great, lovely. Yair and his wife Ziza are very nice persons, very helpful and caring. The Yurt was very clean, cosy, fully equiped. The location is perfekt for relaxing, with great views. There's a pool and wonderful hammocks and also lots of fruits from the garden (thanks!) Lanjaron is only 5 minutes away, there you find the nearest supermarket.
We preferred to stay in Yair's and Ziza's little paradise...
You can do a lot of hiking in this area or just hand around - absolutely great!
We enjoyed our time there very much and would love to come back any time! Thanks a lot.
Dear Laura, Many thanks for your evaluation. Hope all is well and we looking forward to see you again. Love, Yair and Ziza
Yair's house is hidden in an olive grove on the outskirts of Lanjaron and is a very relaxing location. The house is equipped with everything one needs. It is off the grid and it was our first time in a fully solar powered house. All went well and we really enjoyed our stay. Yair is a great host and supplied us food for breakfast which was really nice. We would recommend a stay at Casa Iris and a visit to the Bodega Gonzales in Lanjaron to sample some good Spanish food and wine.
I have known Yair for three years..I first met him and his wonderful wife, Ziza, when i went to stay with them in their yurt in February, 2009.They have an incredibly peaceful and gentle environment which they share with anyone that crosses their paths.
I initially wanted to have as much alone time and reflection time and SLEEP as possible.I ended up having some amazing treatments from the two of them and felt totally rejuvenated, revived and (website hidden) was a life changing experience.!Even though i stayed during a winter week, I was super comfortable.I had everything i needed:Books,peace, quiet, gas and a woodburning stove!And a fantastic outdoor shower.The sauna was a bonus!Ziza even gave me some drawing materials..
Ziza and Yair are extremely accommodating and work with your needs .Whatever they may be.They offered me food in the yurt or were open for me to have my meals with them in their lovely home..If you chose not have treatments this is still a fantastic alternative to modern day hotels/hostels/b and b's.There are lovely walks close by to some expansive views .If i lived closer myself and my toddler would be staying there at lot more often!
THIS IS A FANTASTIC LOCATION AND EXTREMELY COZY AND COMFORTABLE WITH INCREDIBLE ONE OF A KIND HOSTS.STAY HERE!
