Parking: You can park at the top of the town in the first square. From here it is a 5 minutes walk down through the town to the house. If you are a very experienced driver in navigating through small and narrow streets, you can drive down to the bottom of the town, app. 20-30 meters from the house itself.

Heating: The hot water is heated by a gas heater (butano bottles). In the Winter you can use electrical heating as well as the wooden stove (you can usually buy wood and similar products in Alcampo and Aki in Motril)

Drinking water: We suggest you buy your drinking water in bottles in the supermarkets. The tap water is fine, however the bacteria composition in the water is different to what you are probably used to, due to the additives used in the water in Spain.


Rubite: Very little oldfashioned grocery store (a little Spanish knowledge will be of great help). There are 2 bakeries in town, where one of the bakers still uses the old methods including a stone oven (very delicious bread)

Castell de Ferro: a number of small supermarkets, a fishmonger, restaurants, Internet café, hardware store and more

Motril: Alcampo, large hypermarket, and all types of stores in and around the pedestrian areas of the town.

It takes about twenty minutes to get down to Castell de Ferro, the nearest seaside town. The town has restaurants, supermarkets and banks. It is a small pretty town with a palm tree lined passeo that fronts a long beach. There are some delightful towns along the coast - Salobrena is particularly attractive with its Moorish fortress dominating the hill. There are the mountains and villages of the Alpujarras and there is, of course, Granada, one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and home of the magnificent Alhambra.
