The first route via Guadix is longer but more time on motorway and less mountain road.  As it crosses a high pass from late October to late April you should check with us first to make sure snow isn’t a problem.    The second route via Orgiva is more direct but more small windy roads.  Both take about 2.5 hours.

Restaurant Review

Read the review of Las Chimeneas restaurant written by Chris Stewart of Genesis and 'Driving Over Lemons' fame

Las Chimeneas is an elegant collection of village houses that has been welcoming guests to the Alpujarra since 1998. There are nine lovely rooms, all with fabulous views across the hills to the sea in the far distance. We provide very comfortable accommodation, with plenty of antiques and books and nooks and crannies, together with a delightful little restaurant that will surprise you by the quality of its freshly made seasonal produce. We have a deep knowledge of the area and are anxious to share our enthusiasm for this place that has been our home for so long. We offer all kinds of holidays, including trekking, bird watching, cycling, horse riding, cookery and yoga. Above all what we supply is peace and relaxation and a genuinely warm welcome. This represents a very winning combination; perhaps it is this that led the British Airways team to number us first amongst their Top Ten trekking hotels in the world in the summer of 2011.
