Fully equipped apartment set on the edge of Bubion village, offering stunning mountain views. A short walk to restaurants and bars. Ideal for hiking, mountain biking or just relaxing.
Welcome to the little house with a big view! Casita Buena Vista is set in a picturesque rural lane in the enchanting alpujarran village of Bubión, dramatically perched on the edge of the Poqueira Gorge with spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada, the Alpujarras and the Mediterranean Sea.
The casita is of traditional construction with terracotta tiled floors, chestnut beamed ceilings and a large wood burning fireplace. It has been designed to stay cool in the heat of the summer and retain the warmth within on chilly winter days. This studio apartment is comfortably furnished and has a double bed in a sleeping alcove, and double sofa bed and dining table in the lounge area. The bathroom has a bath with shower attachment, and wc. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, four-ring gas hob, electric oven, toaster and kettle. Bathroom towels, bed linen an electric oil radiator, fan, hairdryer and radio are provided. There is also a washing machine, clothes drying rack and ironing facilities. Two French doors lead out onto the partially covered west-facing balcony, offering inspirational views of the village and mountains beyond. The property is not suitable for children or pets.
The main attraction of the region is its inspirational beauty, peace and tranquility. It is situated on the edge of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park and UNESCO Biosphere reserve, so is a spectacular hiking destination. There are walking routes sign posted from the villages. Routes range from short strolls to full-day hikes and two long distance routes. Organised tours are available as well as other activities like horse riding, mountain biking, cañoning, climbing, bird-watching and paragliding. We are also within 1 ½ hour drive of the Sierra Nevada ski area. A small, but fascinating museum, Casa Alpujarreña, housing artifacts from times gone by can be found in the main plaza alongside the church.
Id highly recommend the house for walkers. We had a lovely break & thoroughly enjoyed drinking a glass of wine overlooking the Poqueria valley- its stunning.

Would like to say that I was positively satisfied when I arrived at this property.
Perfect size for a couple and is exactly what it looks like on the website. The view was fantastic and an added bonus having a fire place for the month of December (when we went). The location, again perfect. Just a stroll into the small town of Bubion... and if you like a short hike up & downhill, the other two villages above and below it are within a couple of miles walking distance.
The place was clean, tidy and we were made to feel very welcome!
The perfect place to stay to feel like you are one of the locals.
Had a great time, thank you9

The property is well situated, with great views over the valley. It was clean and well equipped, and was perfect for the two of us.

The apartment is lovely, very well designed having a stylish, comfy and romantic feel. The beautiful vista is spoiled a little by litter and rubbish in the field outside the apartment.
Helen unfortunately stayed after a few days of windy weather where litter had blown into the field. The field is usually spotless as the farmers goats often graze there.

The location was great. Great views. The town Bubion and the surrounding countryside was a treat.
Unfortunately, the apartment was a little shabby. It started at the front door which was dirty. The first thing we did was sweep the mouse (?) dro ppings away from the front door. All the windows were dirty.
Every door in the place grabbed on the floor or door jam. After 5 days that wears a bit thin. The place could do with a handyperson for a few days.
There was a smell I couldnt trace. I tried to keep the bathroom door shut thinking it was coming from the toilet, but it couldnt be closed from the outside.
The first time I had a shower I threw my dirty clothes on the floor. When I picked them up to take them outside they were covered with dust and hair.
The old TV could only pick up one scratchy channel.
