El Tinao is a recently built village house 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!

Serenity in idyllic surroundings

Spent 6 nights in this property with my husband and loved every minute of it. El Tinao is located in a quiet hillside village and is typically 'Spanish'. Although the drop off for luggage is a short walk away, this means that there is little, if any, noise pollution from cars (although we heard an occasional motorbike or tractor/dumpster for some renovation work). We were mesmerised by the ever-changing atmospheric hillside scenery and the sense of calm and quiet - especially early evening when enjoying the hot tub with such a panoramic view. Great base for walking and exploring locally. We spent several lunchtimes enjoying local wine and/or lager and tapas. Weather was warm enough to sit out for food in the day, but chilly at evening - but after the first 2 nights of using the wood burner (think that we may have had 1st of 2017's rentals) we found the house had retained enough heat not to use it - although the aesthetic appeal was tempting. In any case portable electric radiators and a gas burner were also on hand. House was clean and well equipped - from kitchen utensils through to books and guides on the area ( oh yes and a comfortable bed and bedding). Robin greeted us and was really helpful,and informative. Wholeheartedly recommend this rental.
