Guejar Sierra is the perfect base to explore the natural treasures of the Sierra Nevada. Even from the centre of the village, the surrounding mountains dominate the landscape on all sides.
The mountains are rich in wildlife of all types and it is common to see ibex, golden eagles, and many other fauna species on a typical walk in the nearest hills.
Wildflowers and herbs are everywhere and any nature lover can spend hours marvelling at the diversity of the environment.
The climate is mild, and generally warm and temperate. The winters are rainier than the summers. in Guejar Sierra, the average annual temperature is 12.7 °C. About 583 mm of precipitation falls annually.
The decision of where to buy in Spain isn't easy. A beach location, or hidden away in the mountains, a tourist haven or an authentic village, culture or tradition...Guejar Sierra is one of the few that has it all! A pretty, white village with all life based around the local square where the old men will play dominos in the sunshine.
it retains the traditional feel, but with enough tourism and events to ensure a great choice of services, gastronomy and with local events almost every weekend it is certainly vibrant.
The ski resort being only 20 minutes away (ski rental available in the village) makes it a must for skiers taking advantage of the long season, great family skiing and good temperatures. it also ensures great potential as a holiday rental.
if its the beach you long for, it is less than an hour away but the local lake and river pools make for a great alternative as well. For active holidays, the area is a world-renowned mountain bike destination with world class events taking place annually, and paragliding, hiking and mountaineering are high on the agenda for many visitors year-round.
With all this traditional lifestyle, eating lots of tapas and then walking them off, you might feel like the arts and culture of a big city is lacking. The UNESCO provincial capital of Granada is only 16 km away for museums, shopping and all that a big city has to offer.
The local village has an astounding mix of international habitants for a village so small, many young professionals working freelance and online allowing them to take advantage of the great location and not being tied to the main european cities.
The village is extremely family friendly, with lots of young families settled and also has an award-winning, public, (free) local school following a progressive line of education until now unheard of in Andalusia.
