El Tinao

2 ensuite bedrooms (sleeps 4)

Say goodbye to stress...

El Tinao is a brand new townhouse in the heart of the unspoiled village of Canar. The house is unique in the village, being the only property that retains a ‘tinao’ – a feature unique to Berber architecture which connects buildings on both sides of narrow village streets. Built in the traditional Alpujarran style, El Tinao is light and spacious, with high ceilings, chestnut beams and slate stone floors throughout. There are two terraces, one for outdoor dining and a barbecue, the other with sunloungers and a heated spa. Both, of course, have those wonderful soaring views over the village, high above Orgiva and across to the Sierra Lugar. Just like at Casa Rif, on a clear day, you can see the Rif Mountains of Morocco. It’s easy to lose track of time in Canar, but don’t worry – you can also see the village clock tower from the terraces. It won’t help you with the day of the week, but at least you’ll know when to nip out to catch the bread van for croissants in the morning!

Good to know...

A copy of Jeremy Rabjohn's "Holiday Walks in The Alpujarra" along with a detailed walking map can be taken with you, whenever you're heading out.

Additionally, there is a selection of games and books to wile away the hours in the sun!

There are 3 bars in Canar, serving tapas and traditional Alpujarran meals. There's an excellent grocers (which is even open on Sundays!) and a pharmacy.

El Tinao is just a few yards from the GR7 walking route. Getting as far as Athens (where it ends up) is perhaps a little ambitious, but Soportujar is only just over an hour away, with Lanjaron (with its famous spa) a couple of hours on foot in the other direction.

Orgiva is 10 minutes away in the car, with various bars, restaurants and cafes, several banks and a weekly market on Thursdays.
