Surroundings

The village of Otura lies some 15 kilometres south of the world famous city of Granada with the fascinating Alhambra and the old Moorish quarters Albayzin. The beautiful surroundings are perfect for recreational or sportive activities during summer and winter.

Access to Granada is swift via public transport or by car. With all its monuments and sights Granada offers just too much for just a one day visit. A 40 minutes' drive will take you to Sierra Nevada ski resort where both beginners and experienced skiers can enjoy themselves from December until the end of April. On one of the numerous sunny days you could even be skiing on the slopes in the morning, and eat a paella on the Mediterranean beach in the afternoon.

It takes about 35 minutes by car to get from Otura to the coast. Compared to Costa del Sol, the Costa Tropical can definitively be called authentic. During summer it is mainly visited by Spanish tourists, as a result of which the coast still retains most of its ambiance. Around La Herradura a number of diving schools can be found, and the underwater world is one of the finest in Europe.

All possibilities for an active holiday are present in the immediate vicinity of Casa Girasoles. How would you feel about a horse ride on the slopes of the mountains of Sierra Nevada? Or maybe you wish to make a parapente flight? And if a good exercise does not scare you off, you could take a spin on the mountain bike, go for a hike in the mountains, do some rock face climbing etc.

To give you an impression of the surroundings, we offer you a small (12 pics) picture show. All photos were taken in the direct vicinity (walking or cycling distance) of Casa Girasoles. Click here to start viewing.
