Weather in Las Alpujarras

Cortijos rey fini enjoys a Mediterranean climate due to the fact that we are facing South from beneath the Sierra Nevada and it is as sunny as anywhere in southern Spain. It is generally warm and dry during the day but cool at nights due to the altitude.

You will find that each season has something different to offer in the Alpujarras:

April / May/June – springtime in the Alpujarra is very beautiful with wild flowers in bloom everywhere.  It is a good time for hiking as although often sunny, the temperatures are good for walking.

July/August – High season and hot, although due to the altitude, life is never too hot at the cortijos.

September/October – The Autumn is wonderful in the Alpujarras, it is still warm during the day but without the intense heat of the summer months and nights getting colder.

November to March – As a rule we close the cortijos down for the winter months, but the ski resort and the villages around us are all open and lower levels such as Orgiva are much warmer.  Winters, although cold, still tend to have sunny days with temperatures dropping dramatically once the sun goes down.


There are many sites for weather: The Spanish highs is great if you plan to climb Sierra Nevada or hike in the higher levels of the area. There is also a lot of good information on walking, trekking, and scrambling.
