Location of apartment Pórtugos

This countryside accommodation is set within the grounds of a traditional country property near the village of Pórtugos in the western Alpujarra - located between the summits of Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean Sea.

Pórtugos is a small town in the central part of the region of the "Alpujarra Granadina", close to the villages of Busquistar, Pitres and La Taha. It is an ideal base for nature lovers and travellers looking for peace and rest, and also for walkers and adventurers looking to explore the surrounding mountains, valleys, gorges, rivers and waterfalls. 

The villages of the high Alpujarras are also well worth a visit, and have been given the status of special cultural interest by the Spanish government. The town of Pórtugos is one of the most authentic old settlements in Las Alpujarras, given its name possibly dating from Roman times. It's a good base for  walking to other nearby medieval villages. The traditional architecture reminds us of its moorish past, with white-washed flat-roofed houses in a warren of narrow labyrinthine streets. Here you are unlikely to meet anyone but Spanish locals. More popular tourist destinations are the neighbouring villages of Capileira, Pampaneira and Bubión, all within a 15-20 minutes' drive.

Climate: a fairly settled climate means the area is wonderful to visit at any time of the year. Each season has its own special flavour. In winter, the average temperature during the day might be 12-13 degrees centigrade, though it will drop to below freezing at night. You might get rain and even some snow, but the sight of almond blossom in full bloom in February will more than make up for it. Spring time might bring some heavy showers and temperatures of around 18 degrees. The summer months are characterised by much hotter weather - around 30 degrees during the day on average, though due to the geography of the land, welcome coolness in the evenings decends from the mountain tops. The autumn months are still warm, and can bring rain though the classic autumn colours don't make their appearance until around November.

 

As a Spanish holiday destination with a unique and wonderful landscape, we would like to share photographs taken during our hikes around Pórtugos in December 2014, which you can see by clicking on the link below.
