The Pure Mountains farmhouse is perched above the village of Bérchules, in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park of Andalucía, Spain.
This area is known as La Alpujarra. La Alpujarra is a flank of land that stretches southwards from the east-west watershed of the Sierra Nevada mountain range to the Mediterranean coast. The highest peak, Mulhacén, reaches 3,482 metres in a lunar landscape. The coast is known as La Costa Tropical for its lush sugar cane and fruit plantations. Between these two extremes lies a paradise of southern-facing meadows and terraces, irrigated by snowmelt and Moorish water channels and dotted with authentic, flat-roofed, whitewashed villages, of which Bérchules is one.
Bérchules is a traditional, working village. It's off the beaten tourist trail but it has a bank, pharmacy, shop and several bars.
