Finca de la Viña

Tis is the ideal place for someone to get away from it all and live in a comfortable house in the mountains and become self-sufficient in every way. The finca is located in the Sierra Nevada natural park 4 km. from the village of Nigüelas, in a sunny spot at an altitude of 1400 m, reached by the tracks that lead to the Sierra de Durcal and also along the road that leads to the Nigüelas mountain range. It takes a normal vehicle with high clearance about 20 minutes to get up to the cortijo and half that to get back down again. The condition of the track is fine for most of the year, in rainy periods it gets a little worse, but then the city council re-grades it as well as doing this a couple of times a year as a general rule. It I always passable with a 4×4 vehicle.
If there is snow, the road is not usually cut for more than half a day since it is in a sunny area and does not receive frost.
