Our holiday cottage is in the heart of the Alpujarras (La Alpujarra) in Spain's Sierra Nevada mountain range and appoximately 90 kms from Granada airport. Bubión is perfect for those wanting a mountain holiday with easy access to the coast (Costa Tropical) and the Moorish City of Granada.
White villages of the Alpujarras
Bubion is the middle of three white villages (pueblos blancos) – the other two being Capileira and Pampaneira. Each of these high white villages has its own distinctive atmosphere and character. They all have a good selection of restaurants, bars and shops.
The best walking routes southern Spain has to offer
These white villages are the starting point of some of the very best walking routes Southern Spain has to offer. To the north of Bubión sits mainland Spain's highest mountain, Mulhacén, at 3400 metres, and its challenging neighbour, Veleta. For keen walkers, both can be conquered. For the slightly less adventurous, there are many beautiful river valleys, stunning waterfalls and picturesque footpaths throughout the Alpujarras. There is more information on our Activities page.
