This is a house that was sold as a stable and hay-store which has now had one of the best restorations we have seen. Casa del Jasmine, so named as it has a terrific jasmine plant growing over the façade, is a two bedroom village house with a rooftop terrace with jacuzzi and views across the village to the hills beyond. On the ground floor is a small patio as you enter and a large sitting/dining room which leads to the kitchen, again of a very comfortable size. Off the kitchen is small patio ideal for al-fresco eating. The stairs to the first floor are surprisingly wide for a village house and the incline is also much slighter than is normal in village houses. On the first floor is the bathroom with a walk-in shower and two double bedrooms, again of a good size. On the roof terrace is the jacuzzi and plenty of space for dining with friends or watching the sun go down. The house has a lovely ornate wood burning stove in the sitting room and under floor electric heating which makes the house very snug in winter. I was very impressed with what has been done with this house and that takes a lot when you are viewing houses every day. The house is nice and light and it is obvious a lot of love and thought has gone into the restoration.
Saleres is the highest of the three villages, named after one of area's rivers, and known locally as Santo. The most interesting monument is the historic Fuente de los Siete Años, situated in Pago de los Llanos, so-called because its source provided water for seven years before the flow lessened during another seven. Also worth seeing is the Iglesia de Santiago, dating from the 16th century, whose facade, by Pedro de Berrueco, wooden coffered ceiling and tower covered with glazed tiles are impressive. Look out for the Atalaya (also known as the Torre de Marchal), a ruined Nazari watchtower with an amazing view over the valley; it is situated at 1011 metres. There are also several old mills - Blanca, Bastian and Enriquez.
The village is home to Ian Gibson, the Irish writer who is an expert on Spanish history.
The Sierra Nevada is a dramatic, rugged and extensive mountain range, the highest in Europe after the Alps and the most significant section of the Cordillera Penibética. The protected area encompasses 86,208ha of torrential rivers, sheer-sided gorges, stony scree slopes, glacial lakes between snowy summits and, in the foothills of the Alpujarras, cultivated terraces of almond trees and vegetables. Popular activities in the region include skiing, hiking, mountain biking and summer camps. One can simply travel and discover its fauna and flora, see its lagoons and have an adventure in this vast area of land.
