Casa Rif is a large detached townhouse at the front of the village of Cañar. It has a very large, private roof terrace (60m2) with a heated jacuzzi/spa, BBQ and quality lounge and dining furniture. Canar is uniquely situated in the High Alpujarra - nearest village to Orgiva with all its amenities only 10 mins' drive away, yet also has everything you need close to hand - a grocers open 7 days a week, pharmacy and 2 great bars serving meals and tapas. At an altitude of 1150m , Casa Rif boasts open views that are truly unrivalled in the region to which no words or pictures could ever do justice. On a clear day, the Rif Mountains of Morocco can be seen. Canar is totally unspoiled, with the famous GR7 walking route passing through the village, making it accessible to constantly changing scenery...Casa Rif is a large detached townhouse at the front of the village of Cañar.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

About the neighbourhood
Unspoiled, wildlife, lush, mountains, flora, sunsets, sunrises, friendly, historic, alternative, tapas, Berber, peaceful, Moorish... so many descriptions used and overused in a thousand narratives of La Alpujarra. For me, it's the light. Mountains appear so close in the morning, crisp and clearly defined, then seem to retreat in hazy pastel shades in the heat of the sun. The day ends with long shadows, javelins of light from the west, sharp on whitewashed village walls in the evening. Bliss.
Getting around
We always recommend hiring a car to get the best out of La Alpujarra and the wider region.
