The Alpujarran hills of Southern Spain abound with natural beauty. From the snow-covered peaks of the Sierra Nevada, the forested valleys, waterfalls and orange and lemon groves, this is a landscape that uplifts and inspires. This land was once inhabited by the Moors and is rich in tradition.
In this rural setting lies Las Alejas cottage, just above Lanjarón, a Spa town which has been visited by aristocrats, poets and matadores since 1770.It is a short 15 minute walk along the track before you arrive to the balneario (spa) where one can sample the six different natural springs of healing mineral waters and enjoy the hydrotherapy treatment offered.
The attractive studio appartment is attached to a renovated farmhouse, set among terraces of olive groves with views across the hills to the sea.
The farmhouse belongs to Rakhi and Eduardo.
Rakhi is a qualified reflexologist and meditation teacher who currently works in the Balneario (Spa) in Lanjarón. She is an Ayurvedic masseuse qualified in India and offers all these services to guests. If you are interested please book in advance.
Eduardo runs the local language school in Orgiva where he teaches Spanish as a second language from beginners to advanced levels. If you would like more information, please visit www.spanishcoursesalpujarras.com
Las Alejas cottage shares the pool area with the other property La Era (ref. n. 3691) making an ideal holiday for two couples.
