Links to help you plan your self catering holiday holiday in the Alpujarras, Granada, Andalucia, southern Spain
Some useful links:
Car Hire - although we haven't rented a car ourselves in Spain for many years, some of our guests have used the following companies:
Carjet - an agency who finds you the cheapest local car hire
Bus travel - this is a feasible option if you are prepared to be flexible. There are three buses a day that pass us from Granada and Orgiva. The company that runs this efficient service is called ALSA
Weather - We regularly consult the state run weather forecast service that give a 7 day forecast for our local village of Pórtugos, AEMet
For more general information about weather consult the relevant pages of Andalucia.com
Tourist information - for general information about Andalucia consult Andalucia.com, for information about Granada the site Granadainfo is useful - they can give you links to hotels in Granada should you need one. For organised activities in the Alpujarras try Nevadensis, based in Pampaneira.

What an incredible place to stay - the views, the walking and of course the welcome hospitality from Robert and William. At the end of our 11 days stay the weather has been perfect and we loved the cortijo and the garden. Thank you for a relaxing and most enjoyable holiday.
