We are off grid
The electricity and hot water on the cortijo is solar powered. The solar power facilities were upgraded in 2022. Solar power means that the sun heat the solar panels, that loads the batteries. When there is no sun, no electricity will be stored. After dark, or on a rainy day, the electricity you use is from the batteries. When the batteries are empty, there will be no electricity untill the sun starts loading the batteries again.
Via an app, we can at any time check how much electricity is available. In a worse case scenario, should it rain continously for a week (which is exteremly rarer in the Alpujarra) we have the possibility to connect to a generator. The water tank will automatically switch to gas heating, if there is not enough solar energy.
Please have this in mind and be conscious about the use of electric appliances when staying with us. During daytime, you can normally use as much electricity as you need. After dark, you need to be more careful:
Use the dishwasher during daylight.
You can use the oven for a few hours in the evening, but not after a rainy day (check with us first).
Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
We cook on gas. The huge fire place is used for under floor heating during the winter. We don´t have air condition, but there are vans in all bedrooms. The pool is not heated.
Our water comes from the mountains.
We have a small self-serviced shop/pantry on the ground floor, where you can buy basic groceries, in case you missed the shops or arrive late.
If you want us to fill the fridge before you arrive, all you need to do is to send us your shopping list.
We will also be happy to cook you dinner. Maybe you arrive late and would like to have a nice meal waiting for you?
Games and fun
There is a pool table on the ground floor. We have bocca and a wide selection of board games.
