Casa la Regadera - Traditional 3 bedroom house with mountain views in pretty Alpujarran village


Details of the House

Situated in a friendly yet peaceful barrio, it is less than 5 minutes walk from Casa la Regadera to the nearest bar and shop. And, wherever you are in the village, it is a downhill walk back home - a definite bonus on a hot day or after an evening out! There is vehicle access, with parking usually available right outside the front door. At one time housing a local bar on the ground floor, called La Regadera (Watering Can) the house is comfortably furnished in a rustic style, with many original features. Like many village houses, it is fairly open-plan, which gives it a spacious, light and airy feel. The house can sleep as many as 8 (very friendly!) people, but is ideal for up to 4 or 5. Válor is a perfect location for hill walking, painting, photography, birdwatching, astronomy or just relaxing!

We put in a brand new kitchen in July 2010 to try and make the most of a pretty limited space. It's still small but at least 2 of you can work in there at the same time now! On the plus side it's got everything you'd need for your holiday - gas cooker with oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, toaster, kettle, electric slow cooker, electric griddle (brilliant, we use it all the time!), plenty of cupboard space, with the dining area right next to it.

Ground floor: 1 double bedroom, with a small lounge area - lovely and cool in summer.

Top floor: large open-plan bedroom with twin beds (screened off by a curtain) and ceiling fan, plus a folding single bed, best suited to a child.

Includes: Bathrooms (2). Shower (2) and WC (3)
Main bathroom on middle floor has full sized bath (fairly unusual in Spain) with a shower over, WC and basin.

  • Parking (on the road)

Casa la Regadera is located in Valor, Las Alpujarras

La Alpujarra is an enchanting area, lying between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Mediterranean. The string of whitewashed villages offer a glimpse of rural life that has changed little over the years. Much of the Alpujarra lies within the National Park of the Sierra Nevada, and has a wealth of wildlife and more indigenous wildflowers than any other European region. The area is excellent for both winter and summer activities such as walking, mountain biking, crosscountry skiing (45 mins drive at Puerto de Ragua), trekking and horseriding.

Almería is the nearest airport - approx 80 mins drive. Granada is approx 2 hours away. Malaga has biggest choice of flights and is approx 3 hours drive (but getting quicker due to extension of motorway). Car hire strongly recommended although there is a daily bus to Almeria and Granada. We have used Carjet for last 8 years with no problems. If you fancy driving, it's 555 miles from Bilbao to Válor -comfortable with one or two overnight stops.

  • Nearest Ski: 30 km
  • Roquetas de Mar: 80 km
  • Nearest Shops: 0.4 km

Booking Terms & Cancellation Policy

Rental price includes electricity and gas, bed linen and towels. The house is cleaned and beds made up for your arrival - you are welcome to use washing machine for any laundry during your stay. We don't ask for a deposit, but would appreciate payment (by cheque, Paypal or bank transfer) 4 weeks before your holiday.

If your circumstances change and you have to cancel your booking don't worry - just let us know as soon as possible so we can update our availability calendar. We don't ask for a breakages deposit neither do we charge you for cleaning - if you're trusting us for your holiday, we trust you with our house!
Changeover day can be flexible, to allow you to take advantage of cheap flights to Almería or Málaga, or if arriving overland. Arrival and departure times are very flexible, to suit you and your travel arrangements.

We bought the house because we fell in love with it and hope to spend a lot more time there in the future. For now, we need to keep working in order to pay for it, and want it to be lived in as much as possible. Since we see it as our home, it is probably furnished differently from most holiday cottages, and you are very welcome to make use of everything. If something runs out it would be nice if you could replace it, but don't worry if you don't have chance. Accidents happen, so if something gets broken or damaged don’t worry. If it's crockery, glasses etc, it would help if you could just buy some new ones. If it's something larger like the TV just let us know so we can get it fixed.
The house is looked after for us by Sylvi and Peter Cooper, who live a few minutes away in Nechite, and are on hand to offer help and advice if you should need it.
