The Andalucian village of Saleres nestles in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, a whitewashed pueblo just off the winding road that links the villages of the Lecrin Valley and not much more than half-an-hour's drive from Granada or the popular beaches of Salobrena, on the Costa Tropical. 

For visitors, the pueblo is ideally placed, with walks on their doorstep, the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada – among the best in Europe - not much more than an hour away, and the beaches of Salobrena an easy 30 minutes' drive down the motorway. Granada, jewel in the crown of eastern Andalucia, with the fabled Alhambra palace that draws tourists from all over the world, is a similar distance.

Further east, but also close at hand, are the flat-roofed villages of the Alpujarra, with their distinctive mushroom shaped chimneys, which cluster to the sides of plunging almost alpine valleys with rushing streams. As the unmade road rises even higher, the forests that are home to fierce but rarely spotted pine martens and deer give way to mountain screes with the serrated ridge of Mulhacen looming above, the highest peak outside the Alps and a challenge for mountaineers.
