Tucked away in the verdant and mountainous Alpujarras region, this beautiful hand crafted yurt provides a tranquil space in which to relax, meditate and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.
The Alpujarras region of Spain is picturesque and fascinating in equal measure, and where better from which to experience it than the Green Mountain Yurt, a unique and luxurious glamping site with everything you could need to escape and unwind. The yurt, with its own outdoor kitchen and eco bathroom, is your exclusive space, so if you’re into walking, reading, wildlife and sleeping under canvas and stars then you will love this charming retreat.
The Alpujarras is a hidden corner of Andalucia, located underneath the mighty Sierra Nevada Mountains and between the enchanting city of Granada and the gorgeous Mediterranean coast. It’s an ideal area for walking, whether you’re tackling high level snow line walks or enjoying casual meanderings round the valley, and there’s lots of Moorish history and Berber architecture to discover. The distinctive little mountain villages are a true cultural treasure, you can go open air swimming in one of the many waterfalls and natural pools, there are several horse riding stables in the area, or you can go cycling, canyoning, white water rafting or even skiing. Nature enthusiasts will love the wild flowers, birds and butterflies, this is a popular destination for painters and photographers, and the famous Alhambra is just over an hour away. There’s something for everyone in this special unspoilt part of the world.
The nearest train station is in Granada, but Malaga would also be a viable option. Malaga airport is about 2 hours by car, Almeria is about 2.5 hours and Granada is just 90 minutes. The easiest way to get from the airport is by hiring a car and the site can be found between Pitres and Pórtugos, amongst a collection of villages called 'La Taha'. The house is situated on a steep hill leading down from the village of Portugos to the village of Atalbeitar.

The yurt is based on a Mongolian style of tent but has been modified for the climate of southern Spain and for those who wish to enjoy a comfortable camping experience. Inside you will find a full size double bed with side tables, a dining table and two chairs, a sofa, a log burning stove, solar powered lighting and a selection of rugs, cushions and soft furnishings. The kitchen is well equipped with a sink, a fridge, a gas stove and all the crockery and cutlery you might need, and the bathroom has a shower, a wash basin and a Swedish dry compost toilet.
The yurt is situated in a 250m2 private garden terrace. Outdoor furniture and sun loungers are provided and there is a vegetable patch for your use.
There is hot water and some solar powered lighting but generally speaking this will be an ‘off-grid’ experience. Facilities for charging phones and laptops are available at the main house, as is WiFi.
