The house, around 100 years old, was restored between 2013 an 2017, according to a project promoted by Raúl Lozano, designed executed by the architect Francisco J. del Corral del Campo. Next this house, and on the same property, at number 19, lived a fami English and Canadian origin who came to the village on the advic Gerald Brenan himself.
The current owner Raúl spent his childhood in Lanjarón, the village where his father’s family comes from, and fell in love with this area of the Alpujarras during a cycling trip along the Alpujarras Route, part of the Vive tu Historia programme promoted by El legado andalusí in collaboration with the Caja de Ahorros de Granada (now defunct). On that itinerary I stopped at the Hotel-Rincón de Yegen and was captivated by the tinao (a beautiful viewpoint that is preserved as it is) of this alley of Manzano and the ruins that flanked it.
Raúl fell in love with Sandra who was walking with groups in the Alpujarra and together they have rehabilitated the house little by little, while working in Granada. They are people who love nature and seek harmony and peace both inside and outside the house. They can tell you a lot about the history of the Alpujarras, the customs and traditions, the beautiful hiking routes, and also where you can taste the best wine!
