Who are we

Celia & Jeroen

We are Celia and Jeroen, we are a couple and natural born travellers. We like to take our time and take it easy when travelling so we can get to know well the countries and cultures we visit. In Champasak we would like to reflect this kind of travelling into a stressless way of life which gives us the time to enjoy the little things in life.
With Champasak we aim to create a place where we would like to stay when travelling. A warm and pleasant place where guests feel right at home and are helped with a smile.
After many years of wandering around, Celia returns to her homeground Granada. Without a doubt an advantage for our guests, because she knows the region like the back of her hand.
Jeroen is Belgian with Andalusian soul, fond of salmorejo and step by step catching the typical southern accent. He is multilingual and feels at ease fastly in a new environment.
Oh yeah, we almost forgot: we met each other for the first time travelling, in a godforsaken village in the south of Laos on the banks of the Mekong. This small paradise in the middle of nowhere is called Champasak.

Alpujarra and surroundings

What to do

 

Órgiva

 Pleasant village and centre of the Alpujarras in Granada province. A wide range of restaurants and bars where you can taste local cuisine. These are some of our regional products: jamón serrano, black pudding, olives, olive oil, goat cheese, oranges and even avocados, custard apples, papaya and kaki, growing excellently here due to the subtropical micro climate.

Most of the region’s services are to be found in Órgiva and there are supermarkets, bakeries, a butcher shop, a fish shop, fruit and veg shops, drug stores and a hospital. There is a market every Thursday morning.

A lot of hiking, cycling and mountain biking tracks start in Órgiva. Horse-riding, rock climbing or rafting on the Guadalfeo river are other possible activities. 

Lanjarón

 

  It’s the gateway of the Alpujarra region and renowned for its springs and spa in Neomudéjar style. Thousand of people come to the Water festival in the night of June 21st each year. Other sights really worth a visit are the Park, the ruins of the Arab castle and the picturesque main street.  and music festival Lanjarock in August. Market on Friday.

  In summer time the village is filled with activities such as the Medieval market, outdoor cinema in the park, music festival Lanjarock etc. Friday is market day.

   From Lanjarón start various spectacular and amazing hiking and MTB routes such as Sendero de Tello, el Sendero Cerecillo- Mezquerina. In April the village organises a MTB race and in September a Gran Fondo cycling race, the Alpujarra Magna.

Pampaneira, Bubión y Capileira

Three picturesque white villages in the Poqueira gorge. These beautiful villages are the most visited ones of the Alpujarra region.

 

Cabo de Gata-Níjar

National park in desert area and of volcanic origin. Very beautiful beaches and crystal clear water. A pleasure to dive or snorkel. Plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails along the coast. 

Río verde

Spectacular rocky landscapes filled with natural pools. Great spot for hiking and canyoning.

Parque natural de Sierra Nevada

  Possessing 86,208 hectares, it is Spain’s largest national park. It is the highest mountain range of the Iberian Peninsula and only the Alps are higher in all of Western Europe. The Mulhacén (3,482 m) is the Sierra Nevada’s highest mountain.

 Activities amongst others are: hiking, cycling, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, cross-country skiing and horse-riding.Con sus 86.208 hectáreas es el mayor parque natural de España, es el macizo montañoso de más altitud de la Península Ibérica, y el segundo más alto de toda Europa occidental tras los Alpes. Su máxima altitud se alcanza en el pico Mulhacén, de 3.482 msnm. From Capileira and Trevélez you can start climbing to the top of Mulhacén and Veleta, the second highest peak.

   Welcoming mountain villages offering lots of outdoor activities such as Monachil and Güejar Sierra, are definitely worth a stop.

Granada and the Alhambra

  You simply can’t get used to Granada‘s beauty. It’s one of Spain’s most visited cities and its Alhambra is definitely one of Europe’s most important and most visited monuments. Together with the Generalife gardens and the neighbourhood of Albaicín. Other neighbourhoods you shouldn’t miss are the centre with the Cathedral, el Realejo and Sacromonte.

Puerto de la Ragua

A less visited spot of Sierra Nevada. Access to a large amount of outdoor sports in the mountains. 

Valle de Lecrín

Very picturesque valley filled with orange trees. Nice road trip around the lake and passing villages such as Pinos del Valle and Melegís. 

Sun and Sea

Salobreña, La Herradura, Almuñécar and Nerja boast some of the most wonderful beaches of Granada and Málaga provinces. On top of that, Nerja has some impressive caves to explore and the Balcony of Europe, situated at a cliff over the Mediterranean Sea.

Reviews

Our guests giving their opinion

Casa Champasak is a great place to spend your holidays! Celia & Jeroen are very nice hosts. We have spent 10 fantastic days there and will surely come back again. Our children (5 and 2 years old) loved the fantastic pool and garden. The lemon trees and the view of the mountains are also magnificent. Celia & Jeroen – Thank you very much for your hospitality and the holiday in your house. We can highly recommend you! All the best!

We stayed at Celia & Jeroens for three nights and had an amazing time. The pictures of the place don’t do any justice to the place itself. They were quick with communication happy to help and had everything you needed in the property. We would highly recommend the place for a relaxing break to anyone!

June 2019

Casa Champasak is a fantastic place to stay! Celia and Jeroen were extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating from start to finish, their directions were clear and they were flexible with us for both check-in and check-out, which was especially helpful as our flights were at awkward times. The villa itself is stunning, every bit and more beautiful than the photos make it look, as well as being large, spacious and very clean. Though it can easily sleep a reasonably large family, we booked it just for two as we wanted peace, quiet and a pool to ourselves. The pool was amazing, I miss it already. I was pleased to find out that it’s a salt water pool, so no nasty chlorine, and it was very refreshing to jump in after being out in the sun. We ate in for most of the holiday, buying produce from local markets and making good use of the BBQ in the garden, the kitchen was very well equipped for dining in (and for making fresh squeezed juice from local oranges every morning. We went in the hope of having a quiet and relaxing holiday, with space to ourselves and the option of doing whatever we felt like, and we got exactly that. I’d highly recommend Casa Champasak to anyone thinking of visiting the area!

May 2019

We had a fantastic four nights here with our two year old daughter. Peaceful setting with nice places to sit inside the living room, out in a front sun room (loved this in the afternoon), and out on the back patio (where we had breakfast each morning). Very well stocked kitchen with everything we needed to prepare meals. Heating units kept the bedrooms warm, and a wood burning stove kept the living room toasty at night. We had a great time here and would absolutely return.
