a secluded mountain stone cottage in Las Alpujarras, Andalucia, Piedras Enciso offers an ideal retreat for those wishing to escape the stresses of everyday life.
nestled in five acres of private grounds at 1400 metres on the Moorish terraces of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, the cottage has panoramic views of snow capped mountains, valleys and the sea beyond.
the Natural Park sits at the foothills of the National Park, both areas of outstanding natural beauty protected by the Junta de Andalucia. it offers an abundance of wildlife and flowers. the ibex – wild mountain goats, wild boar, golden eagles, bee eaters, oriels, nightingales, badgers, lavender, thyme and rock roses are just some of the sights, sounds and smells.
the cortijo is located along a 2km track, 20 minutes drive from the summit for winter cross country skiing, and 1.5 hours from the coast. the famous walking trail, the GR7 runs from East to West.
