IT sits at the gates of Spain’s famous Sierra Nevada national park.
A complex of 12 well-appointed apartments, La Oveja Verde is surrounded by its own private garden and a biologically-purified swimming pool.
Open since 2007, it has become a tourist highlight, achieving standards of quality and tranquillity that are appreciated by visitors to the area.
Inhabiting two adjoining buildings, Oveja Verde sits at the edge of the charming town of Pitres, with no other constructions nearby.
Located a short stroll to the centre of Pitres with all its amenities, Oveja Verde is the perfect location to explore the important La Taha region, known for its well preserved architecture and beautiful scenery.
Lying on the southern slope of the Sierra Nevada, numerous paths of medieval origin make this an ideal zone for hiking.
No less than three rivers – the Trevélez, Guadalfeo and Poqueira – run through its land, which falls under the jurisdiction of the national park.
The La Taja region includes Mecina, Ferreirola, Fondales, Capilerilla, Atalbéitar and Mecinilla, all quiet villages with individual charm, while Pitres is its administrative centre.
Sitting at 1,250 metres, La Taha has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest for its exceptional architecture and landscape.
Despite being small with less than 500 inhabitants, Pitres has excellent services, including a well-stocked supermarket, a pharmacy, 24-hour emergency health centre, banks, school and institute, as well as several bars and restaurants.
The comprehensive facilities make Pitres one of the most attractive municipalities for long stays or permanent residence.
STOP PRESS: Currently for sale, La Oveja Verde offers the opportunity to continue with the established hotel business, or to form a small urbanisation, in which the apartments could be sold to individual buyers. The building offers generous, ground-level storage, as well as five parking spaces and chargers for electric vehicles. It is surrounded by more than 2,000 metres of garden, with abundant irrigation water distributed through pipes and sprinklers. It also features a beautiful swimming pool.
