El Ferrer is a tiny 200 year old village in Sierra de Contraviesa (foothills of the Alpujarra Mountains).
Situation, 2 kilometres up a newly surfaced road in the valley of Barranco Ferrer ensures peace and tranquility. As the road stops in Barranco Ferrer there is no through traffic, making it a safe and carefree location for all the family.
There is no local transport to the village, so hiring a car is essential for getting here and exploring once you have arrived.
The village is about 7 km (10 minutes drive) from the coastal town of Castell de Ferro, with its beaches, bars and restaurants for those who want to relax by the sea, but is also in the heart of the mountains for those who enjoy walking, bird watching and quiet relaxation.
All but a couple of the 20 houses in this once abandoned village have been restored and renovated over the past 20 or so years. The combination of rural peace and quiet in the mountains and proximity to the coast makes it a great place for those who wish to visit for a holiday and those who live here on a permanent basis.
For a nominal charge you can have the use of a swimming pool and hot tub within the village
