An amazing corner property full of charm and character of the area with slate and chestnut beamed ceilings, nooks and crannies and peculiar layout. Was once used as a Bed and Breakfast property. The garden affords wonderful views down over the valley and surrounding villages. The top floor apartment, the large original wooden entrance door leads into a large reception room with fireplace, off of this there is a large kitchen, again with fireplace and window to the West aspect. Through a small door way and down a few stairs leads into the large sitting room with window to the South aspect, open chimney with fireplace. Off this room there are two double bedrooms, both with windows to the West. The other side of the room leads though into another room which is currently used as a sun room with French doors overlooking the exterior patio and the view. Off this room there is another bedroom and full family bathroom. Out onto the patio, lovely valley and mountain views lead you into the 300m2 garden with various places to sit under the grapevine in a hammock and enjoy the peaceful nature of this property full of history. Down a winding path to the lower ground floor, this is an independent apartment with large storage cupboards, a covered patio area leading in through the entrance door into a hallway, off of which there are two double bedrooms, sitting room with wood burning stove and then through into the large kitchen dining area with door and window to the west aspect, lovely for the afternoon sun.
Mains water and electricity are connected. Internet is available from several local suppliers.
La Taha, is a municipality in the Alpujarras region of the province of Granada, Spain. It is named after Taha Salman, the polymath who was among the first to settle in the area. The modern municipality consists of three distinct villages, though several of these are themselves clusters of distinct settlements. It lies to the east of the villages of the Rio Poqueria gorge, and to the south and west of Trevelez. The villages are all on south-facing slopes overlooking the Rio Trevelez.
The villages of La Taha are:
- Pitres, with the smaller settlement of Capilerilla above it; this is the administrative centre, the largest of the three villages, and the only one on the through road
- Mecina Fondales, which comprises Mecina, Mecinilla, and Fondales
- Ferreirola, which is below the smaller village of Atalbéitar
In guidebooks and other sources, some other neighbouring villages are often included in La Taha, though they do not belong to the municipality. These include Portugos and Busquístar.
The name La Taha comes from Arab Tá, meaning "obedience". Under the Nasrid kings of Granada, the region was divided into a number of administrative districts called "tahas", each containing several settlements; for example, the villages of the Poquiera gorge formed "La Taha de Poqueira". Modern La Taha is the only one of these districts to have retained the name.
There is a modest tourist trade in La Taha, though the villages do not attract the intense interest either of the Poqueira river villages or of Trevélez. Pitres has a market on Friday. The GR7 Long Distance footpath passes through the municipality.
Atalbeitar is one of the best villages in which to learn about the original characteristics of the houses and streets of the Alpujarras, due to the lack of new buildings that other more touristic villages have been constructing.
