Familia ESTÁ opens its doors for the “Holidays *ESTÁ*” !!
Holidays *ESTA* is an opportunity for an unforgettable week-long holiday for children and families living with various impairments or disabilities such as autism, illness or recovering from an illness, limited financial resources that don’t allow the ability to enjoy a holiday as well as children living in stressful environments. For these children, their parents and siblings we are happy to make available our beautiful 3-bedroom apartment the “Sierra Nevada” available, as well as the use of our grounds including the playground & swimming pools. Be sure to ask us how we can help organize our famous “make your own pizza” party for you.
The “Sierra Nevada” Apartment fits comfortably a maximum of 8 people. It has 1 bathroom with shower and toilet, a simple kitchen setup with an oven, a small fridge (for solar energy), 3 bedrooms, a spacious living room with a wood burning stove and a private roof terrace with stunning views.
As a non-profit organization, we depend on donations and we need your help to offer this unique week of “Holidays *ESTÁ*”.
Do you know such children and families? Would you like to help by encouraging them from their daily situation and into the healthy mountain air, the warm Spanish sun, the beautiful nature and our children´s paradise? Please contact us first and ask us for the conditions.
Once agreed, you must figure the total amount needed to travel to Familia ESTA roundtrip including transportation, and expenses such as food, souvenirs etc. Then show your support by organizing a fundraiser among family, friends, colleagues, possibly the school the child attends or other creative means necessary. With a larger budget, the rest of the remaining funds go to Familia ESTÁ as a donation.
Families requiring additional support or professional supervision, are welcome to bring a companion. Maybe this is you! One supervisior is permitted per family in support of the child. In that case that we all agree, one of the three bedrooms can be reserved for this person.
Holidays ESTA is also available to parents of a child who qualify for this holiday and can support this type of vacation. The stay in the apartment can all be arranged by donation. Do not hesitate to request, without obligation, an orientation meeting with Paulina (0034-699040867) to discuss terms and suggested donation amount.
Come and discover the versatility of the Alpujarras. Paulina’s off-road vehicle has room for 5 people and takes you high in the mountains to the Mediterranean Sea. In consultation, you can choose between the following excursions:
The Spanish town of Polopos, now famous for a Dutch TV show, lies in the mountains between Órgiva and the coast. Many Dutch people have come to take a look at this beautiful town. From Órgiva, it is 30 km or 45 minutes by car to Polopos. Enjoy the scenic winding mountain roads along the way. From Polopos we drive back home along the impressive Costa Tropical, with a rest stop on the beach.
*WHITE VILLAGES OF THE MOUNTAIN TOUR*
The highest villages in Spain are located on the edge of the Sierra Nevada National Park. Charming little white villages, each of which still has its own character. We drive 25 kilometers or 45 minutes on paved provincial roads and unpaved mountain roads to the town of Pórtugos, where we will visit a mineral spring and waterfall. From there we return home through the towns of Pitres, Capileira and Pampaneira. This tour includes a stop at the highest point of the mountains with a beautiful view over the Poqueira Valley and a visit to Capileira or Pampaneira with all its souvenir shops, drinking fountains and terraces.
*HORSE RIDING IN THE MOUNTAIN*
Caballo Blanco is located high in the mountains between the towns of Órgiva and Lanjarón. From here horseback riding as well as horse riding lessons are possible. We drive 15 kilometers on excellent roads, a half hour drive. Check the Caballo Blanco website for more information on local options.
