An architect delight, this house was restored with love and creativity, yet has a very functional open feeling. The views are breathtaking over a gorge and you are immediately in another world as you walk out of the door into this ancient village.

Lovely little unique flat in ferreirola. Walks on the doorstep and a great staging post for both exploring the alpujjarra and unwinding afterwards. Great comms throughout. Met Raphael's friend in the square and was guided to the door. If anything we were being chased as we detoured to Orgiva on the way and were a little later than expected. Nearest shop is in Pitres, 5 min drive or half hour walk. You can quite easily cook at home. All you need is there. Even a washing machine. Or a few places walkable and lots of places within a short drive; mecina, pampaneira, capileira. Ferreirola is in a quiet valley, close enough to the more tourist type towns and villages, but far enough away too. Had a great trip and would happily stay here again.

Such a special place . Walkers paradise . Good for the soul . Would advise stocking up on basics enroute , don't worry about bottled water as there's a fountain in the village and water good. Tap water not so as tastes very irony. Pizzeria in Mecina well worth a visit! Take a map/walking book of area if that's what you're planning to do.

Ferreirola is a terrific place to spend some time and Rafael's place is perfect for that purpose. Nicely decorated and well equipped. We had a lovely stay! Thanks!

The place is fantastic for those who love mountains and want to hike around or just sit on the patio and write a book or concentrate on some work. The apartment is perfectly equipped. The village is stunning as well the surrounding , especial in the spring when all is blooming. We wish to stay longer. If you look for complete privacy mind that the apartment is in the village and its natural sounds.

Great long-term stay at Rafa's place in Ferreirola. I didn't want to leave. It is a paradise for those wanting to disconnect, love walking, and want to be enveloped in Alpujarreñean village way of life. No noise, only the River Trévelez constantly flowing in the valley. The kitchen is well equipped, the balcony is fab with a delicious breeze and it gets the sun most of the day until the evening. The area is divine for nature enthusiasts, pueblos blancos, views and just fresh air. The local bars are about 10 minutes walk away, and are a great place to socialise at the end of the day when then sun has gone in and the locals come out! Just stunning. Ideal for one person, but if you are a couple it should be fine, bit of a squeeze for two over a long time. Thanks Rafa, I will be back!

We had a very nice and relaxing 4 days at Rafael's house. Indeed the house is nicely and creatively renovated and tastefully arranged. Appliances are basic but adequate, the bed comfortable and the Wifi surprisingly good given the remoteness of the village. Ferreirola is a pretty and quiet village, much less touristy than others in the area. There are no shops or bars so arrive here stocked up. The next bigger village Pitres is a 15 minutes drive away. There are lots of personal touches in the house (photographs etc.) so this is not a "clean" holiday let if that is what you are looking for. We had a great 4 days with nice views from the terrace, easy walks from the doorsteps and exploring the wider area. The only thing that didn't work for us was the woodburner which we were unable to light given the provided wood. Rafael gave us a warm welcome when we arrived and we'd happily return.

As with many others who now live in this area I came for a weekend 12 years ago to get a break from a stressful life in London, and found instead the place that my heart had been waiting for.
I am an architect who has specialized in the study and restoration of the historic Islamic heritage of the Granada region. Like all of life here, the deeper you go the more interesting it gets.
