Casa de la Luz, Bubión
Alpujarras,Granada, Andalusia, Spain.
Casa de la Luz is a perfect spot to start and come home to when exploring the higher Sierra Nevada. Janny is an enthusiastic home owner who will gladly welcome you when you arrive after a long winding drive up the mountains. The house has good central heating and an open fire. Very nice to make it cosy warm in winter. The village of Bubion has a small store nearby and some restaurants. Even more restaurants, bars and shops are in the nearby town of Capileira. Recommended!
We stayed in this apartment for 12 days and loved it. It is spacious and very nicely furnished, with a very large sunny deck. The central heating was excellent and there was wood for the fireplace also. The apartment is well equipped for cooking and there is a supermarket 2 minutes walk away. The apartment is very quiet, but close to everything in Bubion. The owners Janny and Manuel are so nice, really friendly and interesting, and nothing is too much trouble. We would love to come back again.
Casa de la Luz is in the small village of Bubion. The views
were lovely, the village was tranquil, and the owners were
very friendly. We got good tips on child-friendly walks
in the area and a great restaurant in town. We would definitely
recommend it to others, including families with small children.
We spent a great week in Bubion at Casa de la Luz
last June. The apartment was clean, tidy and well furnished
and it was very convenient for the shops and restaurants.
The owners, Janny and Manuel live up the road and were great
hosts, making us most welcome and entertaining us. They
gave us lots of information about the walks and the region
and the best restaurants and helped us to make the most
of our holiday.
Bubión is a small quiet village with few tourists
and has some nice restaurants and interesting weaving shops.
The walks in the area are varied and interesting and generally
it was not too hot because of the altitude; a highlight
of our stay was a trip to the top of Mulhacen
and then a walk back to the neighbouring village. We would
not hesitate to recommend Casa de la Luz
We loved our stay at Casa de la luz.
We spent 2 months in Spain and this was our favourite place.
We spent a week here. It was peaceful and quiet but there
was plenty to do in Bubion and surrounding
towns. The accommodation was perfect for us (2 adults and
4 year old child). It was even better than it appeared in
the photos and description and has real charm. It has everything
we needed. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds comfortable
and the verandah was fabulous to sit on for breakfast and
in the evenings. Everything in the town is within easy walking
distance. Janny and Manuel (the owners) were really friendly
and helpful and it was great for us that they spoke English.
They provided excellent information about walks, restaurants
and day trips. Bubion is a great town and
within 30 minutes of strolling through the countryside (past
fig trees and goats with lovely sounding bells) you can
reach two other towns. There are some great places to eat
and our favourite was Estacion 4. The views
over the mountain and the town are really special, particularly
in the early evening. The whole area and the drive upto
Bubion is really spectacular. Bubion is
a wonderful example of a Spainish village with an interesting
history and did not feel busy or overly touristy either.
I highly recommend this accommodation.
My husband, 1 year old daughter and myself stayed in the
Casa de la Luz for four nights this past
November. house is well maintained, feels secluded and is
a great starting point for excursions. The home is quaint
with very sweet and helpful owners.There is a small grocery
store 2 minutes away. We found very nice vegetarian restaurants
in Bubion. We took day trips via car to
Granada and the Mediterranean coast.
The surrounding villages were great small day hikes. I would
recommend staying in this home if you want a slow,
I have already recommended both Bubion village
and the Casa de la Luz to friends and family
and hope to go back myself one day. The Poquiera
valley is stunning and the terrace provides amazing
views to the peaks of the Sierra Nevada
as well as to the Mediterranean sea (and
mountains of Africa beyond on clear evenings). We spent
a relaxing week walking the many paths throughout the valley
and its environs (carrying our 12 month old daughter!) -
across pretty mountainsides, to dramatic gorges, through
forest patches and towards the snowy peaks, collecting chestnuts
and walnuts along the way. What could be better?! The locals
are friendly and Jenny and Manuel are excellent hosts. A

What a wonderful stay in Bubion.! A beautiful
house with fresh air patio and views outside - music and
comfy fireplace inside. We loved being able to cook for
ourselves or go to restaurants nearby. Hiking was great
and the maze of streets in the village were fun to explore.
Especially friendly and helpful hosts Janny and Manuel.
I can't wait to return soon! Casa de la Luz and
The Alpujarra are the best.
We have stayed in La Casa de la Luz satisfactorily comfortably
and enjoyed staying in Bubion, Sierra Nevada.
The rooms including the living room with bright
daylight and good views over the valley, the spacious
bedrooms, the balcony viewing the Mediterranean
over the mountains and the kitchen well equipped, all assisted
our enjoyable stay in Bubion. We
enjoyed cooking in the kitchen Japanese dishes using
some seasonings brought with us from home almost everyday.
One thing to my regret, Africa did not
reveal herself during our stay, although we could have a
glimpse of her when we drove to Cabo de Gata,
The location was ideal for our plan primarily of walking
in Sierra Nevada and optional one day visit
to Granada and one day drive to Almeria.
We had a lovely week in Bubion. It was
easy to wind down and relax in this quiet spot with its
gentle pace of life. This is a good place to be based if
you like walking - there are lots of walks you can do in
the Poqueira valley and beyond from the
doorstep.. Granada was an easy day trip
in the car. The house is very comfortable, well equipped
and has great views from the sun terrace.. Janny and Manuel
are good hosts and provide a warm welcome. We have no hesitation
in recommending Casa de la Luz!
In December we stayed in Casa de Luz, and
we really enjoyed it, because of the nice atmosphere of
the house. The weather was wonderfull and during the day
we could sit on the terrace and enjoy the views. More over,
we loved walking in the surroundings and the children adored
throwing snowballs at each other. The very nice thing of
Casa the Luz was the fact that is was so
nicely heated, and lovely decorated. Besides that Janny
and Manuel helped us a lot when we had problems with our
car. We really enjoyed our stay in Bubion.
Thank you, Christel Jansen
