This is where you can have breakfast.
There is a lovely sound of birdsong and
views of the mountains.
This is the view of the village from the
other side of the valley. There is an
excellent walk which takes about
3 and a half hours. It is possible to see
most of the villages of La Taja.
This is the Aljibe Bar/Restaurant
5 minutes' drive from the house.
You can park in the square - 3 minutes
from the house
The accommodation is all on the first floor. The long, beamed
living room has a wood-burning stove and comfortable seating with
a dining area next to the balcony. We have a large collection of
modern novels in English (and welcome more).
There are 2 bedrooms,
one with a double bed and the other has 2 single beds. The beds
have sprung mattresses and duvets and we
furniture and fabrics to decorate.
The kitchen has a fridge, gas stove
(3 burners) and a washing machine. A fairly steep wooden staircase
leads to the railed roof terrace.
The bathroom has WC, shower and
sink. We supply sheets and towels.
From the living room there is a south-facing covered balcony with
seating and the entire roof has been turned into a terrace for
sunbathing or stargazing. There is a table, lounging chairs, barbecue
and a large sun wooden umbrella. Several of the local signposted
walks along ancient mule trails start just outside the house, which
is on the edge of the village.
and Eating Out
Ferreirola has a daily bread van
between 13.00 and 14.00, a fruit van on Tuesday evenings and
a fish van on Wednesday mornings. It
is only 1km to Mecina which has a family-run bar and restaurant
and a vegetarian restaurant. There are many varied
inexpensive restaurants in nearby villages and the bars still give
complimentary tapas with wine and beer.
Pitres, 6 km away, has a bank,
chemist, baker, supermarket, vegetarian restaurant, bars and
health centre (bring form E111).
There is a pleasant outdoor swimming pool at the Balcón
de Pires campsite.
Visiting the Surrounding Area
Granada with the splendour of the
Alhambra is just over an hour away and the beaches of the “Costa
Tropical” are even closer.
Serious walkers can scale the Mulhacen (3,482 metres) or Veleta
at 3,398. There are also local facilities for mountain biking,
horse riding, and flamenco dance and photography classes.
A car is almost essential here although it is possible to reach
the village by public transport.
Sorry but animals and
pets are not allowed
The house is not suitable
for the disabled and the entire area would prove very difficult for
anyone with mobility problems.
Ferreirola now has WIFI
Guests at Casa Barbara can now take advantage of the WIFI service
offered by the bar and tearoom, FaRa, two doors away. They also
have a computer for client use. Of
course there are those who feel the beauty of Ferreirola is that it is
a place where you can disconnect from the world but for those of you
who need to check your emails every day, well now you can!
Ferreirola (the village) is part
of La Taha de Pitres, a grouping of 7 small villages dating back
when the area was occupied by the moors
whose architecture and terrace hillsides are very much still part
of the landscape. The villages are whitewashed with steep, winding
streets where it is still common to see donkeys and shepherds with
their flocks passing through.
The area is famous for its mineral water springs, air-dried hams
and inexpensive rugs and pottery.
We enjoy over 320 days a year of sunshine and have beautiful spring
flowers and blossom as early as February. The autumn and winter months
usually bring warm days with crisp nights and the altitude (around
1000 metres) means that it is never unbearably hot in summer.
There are no cars allowed in the narrow streets of Ferreirola and
the only sounds are birds or sheep bells.
There are, however, 3 restaurants and a bar within walking distance
and a larger village just 6 km away.
The property has a balcony and roof terrace, a spacious book-filled
living room, double bedroom leading to a second twin-bedded room,
a rustic but well-equipped kitchen and a bathroom with shower, WC
and sink and plentiful hot water.
you would like to use the wood burning stove we can supply you with
already cut up olive and home oak wood. The cost of the wood is 6 euros
We will send you full arrival
instructions (telephone numbers, how to get to the best car
park, etc.) in the booking confirmation email.
