Traveling to Cortijo Llano de Manzano, Spain

Cortijo Llano de Manzano is situated on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the south of Spain, in an area known as Las Alpujarras. The nearest small village is Cañar (1.7 km), the nearest small town is Órgiva (9.7 km), and the nearest main city is Granada (61km).

The GPS reference of Cañar is 36.927018, -3.428124 (+36° 55' 37.26", -3° 25' 41.25"). The village is indicated by the red marker in the map below.

Local Directions from Órgiva or Lanjarón

Take the Lanjarón road out of Órgiva. Cross the bridge and take the first major turn on the right (A-4102, signposted Pampaneira, Bubión, Trevélez etc.) After approximately 2 kilometres, take the left turn clearly marked to Cañar (GR-4201).

Climb the hill to Cañar. As you come in to the village there is a bar called Café Bar Piki directly in front of you. Take the turn to your extreme left and follow this mountain road for 1.7 kilometres. Take the left turn onto a dirt track (there’s a little wooden sign marked ‘El Cielo De Canar’) and continue to the end of the track and park taking care not to turn down left into the first drive.

Cortijo Llano de Manzano is the property to your left. If you get lost, please phone us on our mobile (0034) 680 741 108. The distance from Órgiva is just under 9.7 km, and the journey takes about 15 minutes.
