Villa cortijo Pampaneira, Las Alpujarras
The villa is located 2 Km away from Pampaneira, a village in La Alpujarra, among the Natural Park of Sierra Nevada, Granada - Andalusia.
The property has 3 different buildings which for the purpose of this description we will call A, B and C.
The building A is the main one on the property, it used to be a single house with 3 bedrooms but 2 years ago we divided it in two different houses (Casa 1 and Casa 2). It would be very easy to merge them back together without any construction work involved.
The building B also has two houses, one on each level (Casa 3 and Casa 4) and they could easily be merge together with some minor construction work.
Both buildings are separated from each other about 75 meters and there are trees in between.
There is a fifth house (building C - Casa 5) apart from the before mentioned, it is a small and very cozy home.
This villa was built from scratch by the owners about 30 years ago, it´s a property with character and full of beautiful details. During these 30 years the houses have been renovated and expanded. After raising two beautiful children in the property for 14 years, buildings A and B have been destined for Rural Tourism and short time rentals. The business has been registered in “Turismo”and working well since 2003.
All the houses have been built with passion and following the traditional local architecture, so characteristic of this area, with stoned external walls, reclaimed wood and they all feature beautiful artistic details, including Nazarí style tiles made by the owner.

It also has two natural mountain springs with constant water all year around and the property has irrigation water rights from the main irrigation ditch .
All the houses are furnished and perfectly equipped with power (220 v.), washing machine, gas water heaters, all kitchen supplies, etc. They all have chimney or wooden stove that heats the houses very well in winter. Each house has its own entrance and terrace which are very quiet and peaceful.
Each building has its own septic tank approved and permitted by the Natural Park of Sierra Nevada.
