<font class="content">Hi everyone. Ive returned to the UK after 5 years on Mallorca and am looking to buy a holiday retreat and possible retirement home in Southern Spain. Ive chanced upon Polopos and gleaned as much info on the web as possible. I just wondered if anyone lives in or nearby,has visited or has any views they could share with me. Thanks and best wishes to all. icon_cool.gif</font>

<font class="content">Is Polopos up on the hills between Albunol & Motril? If so I believe I have a couple of photos of the area if you need them.</font>

<font class="content">Can't help with the first-hand experience...we only saw the place from a distance (although it did look very nice). Mrs Fruitas wasn't too chuffed with the road up there from Albunol (she had her head in her hands most of the trip...very steep and winding!)...not sure what the access is like from the Motril side and it wouldn't surprise me if you got lots of snow during the winter up there.</font>

<font class="content">It does not get any snow, not high enough. It is nearer Castell de Bano than Albunol and you can access it from there, the snow line is more the other side of Albondon.

<font class="content">Hi pwwm,

You have surprised me with that...only been up there the once and we seemed to climb up them hills forever to get there! I would have assumed it was high enough for at least a dusting of snow...you live and learn icon_lol.gif</font>

<font class="content">Hi casafrutus

I agree it does seem forever but next time you are over carry on the other side of the hill and you climb even more, very little snow this year on the hills yes Mulhacen, which incidentally is the name of our calle here in Albunol has snow and quite a few of the piste's are open.
Where are you when in town?

<font class="content">Do you mean up past Albundon? Yes, been up that way and down the other side towards Cadiar...some stunning scenery, but the missus isn't too keen on all those steep drops at the side of the road, so we tend to stick to the lower areas! Back out there for a fortnight at Easter....can't wait!</font>

<font class="content">Hi. Just returned from a visit to Granada and stayed two nights in Polopos (at Casa Nicolar - lovely couple). Village is small but the people are very kind. Views spectacular and the climb up towards the village is unbelievable - although, being honest, I didn't like it!! There are no bars/restaurants/shops in the village, although they do get deliveries up there. As regards snow, we understand that there isn't much unless the wind blows it across from the other side! Hope this helps.</font>
