  Distances and Directions


  "La Chaparra" and "La Chicharra" are set on the south slope of the Sierra Nevada at about 1,200 m height. They are about 6 km above Lanjarón and therefore have incredible views looking over the valley of the Guadalfeo up to the Mediterranean, or the mountains of the Contraviesa and in clear weather to Africa.

  Possible Excursions


  Like everywhere into the Alpujarras, the landscape is shaped by the terraces, which were originated by the Moors up high into the mountains side. The area is also well known for the gushing water acequias developed in the Islamic time of Al-Andalus. Blickl auf Lanjarón - Zum vergrößern klicken  Acequia an der Grenze zum Nationalpark


Üppige Vegetation auf dem Grundstück  Mandelblüte vor dem Haus


  The area covering approximately 20,000 square metres is covered with lots of trees including chestnut, almond, olive and various fruit trees which all help keep the area lush and green. With the help of the fresh spring water coming down from the snow-covered summits of the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean close by, there is a unique selection of Fauna and Flora.
  We use only natural and environmental friendly products on the properties. We also hope our guests will help themselves and enjoy all the fruit etc the land has to offer. Mandeln, Maronen und Walnüsse wachsen auf dem Grundstück  Der Wächter von La Chaparra
