Vacation Rental Name: Casa de Milagro (Bubion - Spain)

Since 3 years I live in Spain and together with my parents (living in Belgium) we wanted to make a trip to Granada. My wish was not to stay in the city, so I start looking in the neighborhood to finally end up in the Alpujarra area. And what a choice!

A few weeks ago we drove to Bubion and little by little we discovered that the valley was extremely beautiful. The village itself, a bit like the others two, is very tranquil and completely white. The views are just amazing!

We had the honor to meet Janny and Manuel who passed by the house to say hello. After 20 minutes of talking we decide to go for having a drink and a tapa in the next village. We had a great evening!

So yes, I recommend this beautiful house and garden! It is the perfect choice if you like walks, reading books and listen to the birds, great views, good food, wine, etc.

We definitely would like to come back!

Vacation Rental Name: Casa de la Luz

Our 2nd visit to Spain, we decided to concentrate on the region of Alpujarra. We found the lovely little town of Bubion and wonderful accomodation at Casa de la Luz. The owners, Janny and Manuel , speak Dutch, English, French, German and of course Spanish, so able to provide all the information necessary for a fabulous visit to the region.

Enjoyed leisurely exploring the hiking paths and walking the short distances to Capiliera and Pampaneira - 1 and 2 km. away. Both Janny and Manuel came to visit with us to ensure our holiday was everything we had hoped for. Thanks again!

Revisiting this town where I first fell in love with Spain was even better the second time around, thanks to owners Janny (Dutch) and Manuel (Spanish). They were full of useful information and down-to-earth enthusiasm for this wonderful area.

We enjoyed hiking and meandered from village to village on foot or by car. Spent hours on the patio overlooking the mountain valley or relaxing in front of the fireplace. We prepared meals in the small kitchen with ingredients bought at the local grocery and morning produce truck, or joined a mix of locals and tourists for meals in a nearby restaurant or bar. The house is charming and was just the right size for the four of us.

When it was time to leave, we adjusted our route to include a visit to Villaluenga del Rosario (Casa del Municipal is in this village) where we had a wonderful meal (and really good wine) at Meson la Cancela, a restaurant owned by friends of Janny and Manuel. Making connections in this way, with local people who know the area, was a highlight of our trip. Thank you Janny and Manolo!
