The house has been recently restored using traditional materials in original ways, with beauty and comfort in mind. Chestnut beams, bedrock corners and many unique touches give it a rustic charm.
We, Tom and Carmen ( the owners) are both artists, and have delighted in creating a space that is simple but harmonious, spending the last 19 winters restoring it with all our love and care, and so we are very happy when people come to enjoy our work.
We have built a SWIMMING POOL and it is heated in the colder months. The system we use to purify the water is sand and salt, so your skin and eyes will be kindly treated here. It has also a hydro-massage and swimming against the current system so that you can exercise and feel revitalised and restored. It has a big dressing room with a large walk in shower, and also a beautiful STEAM ROOM, with Iranian tiles.
There is an interior patio in the house, shady and plant-filled to escape the heat of the midday summer sun, where there is a BARBECUE available for your use.
As well as 3 large TERRACES with spectacular VIEWS and plenty of garden furniture.
Get cozy beside the fire, eat out on the terrace under the pergola with the untouched valley beneath you, explore our selection of games, or just relax and read our books.
But we also have a smart television with Netflix, etc. A DVD player and films are available too. There is WIFI and an office area if you need to catch up with your life, or you can work from the terraces whilst enjoying the views…..
There are in the house as well as other suggestions a collection of maps with exciting detailed walks via the moorish paths.
Atalbeitar, situated in the wonderful Alpujarra valley, is on the South slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
All other amenities are well supplied in the very nearby villages of Pitres, Mecina, Mecinilla, Fondales, Ferreirola, Portugos and Busquitar (see local area page). If you look at a map you’ll find that we are in the middle of them all.
