    We are part of a community and therefore plenty of opportunity to socialize with other people. The nearest town orgiva is 4km away.There are always people coming and going so its fairly easy to get a lift. The do it yourself culture thrives here and there is a lively alternative scene of theatre and music. The city of Granada is an hour and a half way by bus and there are plenty of good walks for those who like to use their feet.
