Car Hire - Our guests have varying experiences of car hire companies, some try to attract customers with very low inital quotes but add on extras. We recommend you question them as to the complete price including any fuel and fully comprehensive insurance. Many of our guests have been pleased to use:
Airport transfers - Try Malaga Airport taxi
Bus travel - this is a feasible option if you are prepared to be flexible. There are three buses a day that pass us from Granada and Orgiva. The company that runs this efficient service is called ALSA
Weather - We regularly consult the state run weather forecast service that give a 7 day forecast for our local village of Pórtugos, AEMet
Tourist information - for general information about Andalucia consult Andalucia.com, for information about Granada the site Granadainfo is useful - they can give you links to hotels in Granada should you need one. For organised activities in the Alpujarras try Nevadensis, based in Pampaneira.
For horse riding try Dallas Love
