Just south of the historic Moorish city of Granada, The Lecrin Valley is a lovely green, orchard-covered area at the foot of the dramatic Sierra Nevada mountains and within half an hour of the beautiful Costa Tropical.
With lots of character, tight-knit communities, great communications yet a relaxed way of life, it’s perfect for either a holiday destination or to live permanently. With the best lifestyle balance, the Lecrin Valley is away from the hustle and bustle of the coast, yet within very easy reach for days at the beach, and a short distance to the beautiful and lively city of Granada.
Driving times are about 1 hour 15 from Malaga (with the newly completed motorway), 35 mins from Granada airport, 20 minutes to Granada city and 25 minutes to the Costa Tropical.
The Lecrin valley is made up of 8 municipios, made up of 17 villages or towns:
Albuñuelas – Dúrcal – El Padul – El Pinar: Pinos del valle, Ízbor – El Valle: Melegís, Restábal, Saleres – Lecrín: Acequias, Chite, Béznar, Mondújar, Murchas, Talara – Nigüelas – Villamena: Cónchar, Cozvijar.
