The spa town of Lanjaron with its picturesque Moorish castle has a lively ambiance and all the amenities. It boasts several public swimming pools, tennis courts and a fragrant eucalyptus park. The dramatic countryside/ National park on its doorstep is perfect for walking. Local activities include mountain biking, guided walks, horse riding, rock climbing, Spanish lessons, yoga classes, spa treatments and massage. Lanjaron, famed for its mineral waters, healthy environment and the longevity of its inhabitants, is known as the 'Gateway to the Alpujarras' offering easy access to high mountain villages. Equally accessible is the Costa Tropical with golf courses & beaches. Inland, discover Granada's lively flamenco scene & the spectacular Alhambra or ski resort at the Sierra Nevada.
At home follow the natives and pass the time in one of the many bars or restaurants or watch life go by in this traditional, unspoilt, authentic Spanish village where locally grown produce is still sold from the houses. Many restaurants in the village serve 'menu del dia' each day at lunchtime (a 3 course meal for between 8/12 euros often with a drink included) if you don't feel like cooking at home - evenings are good for drinks and tapas. You can visit the artesan shops in the village selling local produce including serrano hams, cheeses, confitures, wines etc as well as locally made wickerwork baskets.
Orgiva, 7k from Lanjaron is the administrative centre of the Alpujarras. It has been settled by a large number of expats of all types to the detriment of its local character. Lanjaron by contrast, with its wonderful location, is an authentic "pueblo" community with a long tradition of being a welcoming and attractive spa town.
Other Activities: yoga, massage, healing treatments, cyclng, horseriding, walking

About Mary Meade
My husband and I have lived in Lanjaron for 32 years (we are both Irish) - our two children were born here and are bi-lingual. I have been teaching English to both children and adults in the village for 24 years . I also work as a part time administrator at an alternative holiday centre in a nearby village (for the last 25 years). Brian is a massage therapist whose practice is mainly based at the same centre. We enjoy a high degree of integration in the town and are known by most of the villagers. Our home is very closeby to the square so we are available any time.
Mary Meade purchased this house in 2005
Why Mary Meade chose Lanjaron
We built and designed this wonderful little house for its perfect location. The neighbours are very proud of the plaza and their plants which they lovingly maintain and think we have done a wonderful job of designing this house. This is a place where you can get a great insight into an authentic Spanish pueblo where the concept of community is still alive and well. And of course you will meet the ladies of the plaza while on holiday with us..They tend to speak only Spanish but are so friendly and try and adapt to 'communicating' with all our guests. The plaza Santa Ana also has it's very own Saint Ana and her nameday is celebrated every year in the square on 26th July.
What makes this house unique
I never tire of the views onto the plaza and the sound of the running water - it's quite picture-perfect. The house itself has a very cosy feel to it and has everything you might need for easy living as well as the fact that it's also very central. The neighbours are very friendly and helpful and love to have the opportunity to have a chat (if you speak a bit of Spanish!)
