Alquería de Morayma

Alquería de Morayma, rural ecotourism in the Alpujarra mountains, Granada

Alquería Morayma, set against the backdrop of the majestic Alpujarra mountains on the southern rim of the Sierra Nevadas, borrows from the region´s Moorish past to create an experience that´s distinctly Andalusian. This historic cluster of homesteads and farmhouses overlooking the Guadalfeo River has been transformed into an hotel/apartment complex that looks out onto the panoramic vistas of the Sierra Nevada National Park.

Alquería de Morayma is a typical Andalusian cortijo (farmhouse) located on a 35-hectare farm near the village of Cádiar. The property features a pool, conference hall, restaurant serving regional specialities, and even a library devoted to Andalusian topics. Abundant Mediterranean flora surrounds the property and a stroll or hike on any of the trails that traverse the Alpujarras will reveal wild grapes as well as olive, almond, and fig trees. A restored mill and functioning antique bread oven are there for visitors to enjoy this slice of traditional Andalusia.
