The Alqueria de Morayma , Alpujarra – Granada ,comprises eighteen bedrooms and four houses/appartments totalling   48 places.The Alqueria is a group of one storey buildings cleverly constructed  in the old manner, using local materials and expertise, nestling  higgledy piggledy  in lanes, alleyways,  arcades and tiny squares to create the asymetric feel  of an authentic  Alpujareño village. There is a hermitage, extensive stabling, a home farm, and kitchen garden. Cobbles and quiet!

The Dining Rooms

In the Alqueria de Morayma restaurant  one can enjoy the traditional dishes of the Granada Alpujarra  prepared from recipes collected, conserved and then prepared in our kitchen. We have two dining rooms – one with a communal  bar and open fireplace, chestnut beams and convivial atmosphere;  the other cosy and intimate. Both are decorated with local memorabilia and artefacts.

Meals can also be enjoyed on the ample terrace with its vast views of the Sierra Nevada.  On summer nights for the cool air, or warm sunny  lunchtimes in mid-winter!  In Spring (almond blossom and wildflowers)  and in Autumn (leaves)  the colours are wonderful.


Multi-use Salon/Workshop

Going down through the gardens of cypress and herb bushes we come to the workshop  (90m²)
We use the space for workshops, meetings, courses, exhibitions, concerts – and recently (by special request) weddings..

The workshop has bathroom facilities and is equipped with :

  • Music centre
  • Film projector
  • Overhead projector
  • Yoga mats, chairs and tables
Outside on the patio (plenty of space for dancing and exercises) next to the fountain is the barbecue, and of course wonderful views of the Sierra Nevada .




The Library

At the Alqueria we have always wanted to have a special place to house our ‘Alpujarra Collection’.

Here in the Library, surrounded by antique glass fronted cases which contain a lifetime’s collection of books and  memorabilia  dedicated to the social, economic, cultural and physical life of the Alpujarra  Granadina, we can read and relax.  Here we have brought together  books, diaries, travelogues, maps, guides, articles and memoirs – over the centuries, from Alpujarreños all over the world.

Swimming Pool

Float and look up at the mountains – floating too.  We have a large pool  for bathing, exercising  and  playing; refreshing after a day’s hike, and a very special place to lie down in the sun and enjoy the magnificence  of the views. High peaks, white villages, huge skies.  The pool is usually in use from April to October.

The Farm and Stables

One of the best attractions of the Alqueria de Moryama are the magnificent sunsets; looking westwards as the sun goes down along the Guadalfeo river valley the Sierra Nevada  is lit up in extraordinary relief. As we see the sun flitting westwards behind the mountains we find ourselves at the stables, our organically cultivated kitchen garden, and ancient threshing floor from where we can see the head of the Guadalfeo river whose waters flow from the high Sierra to the Mediterranean at Salobreña.
The farm with its animals, the aviary and our dovecotes are especial favourites with our younger visitors.
