Velez de Benaudalla is a traditional pueblo of whitewashed houses offering a variety of small shops, supermarkets, banks and bakeries. If you wish, with all the available amenities, this can be a true rural retreat, where life can be conducted without the necessity of travelling to/from main towns, making it a sanctuary away from everyday life.  Market day is Monday, after which you can sample Tapas, served free with your drinks, in one of the many small bars. The village also has a municipal swimming pool, historical buildings, gardens and riverside walks. 

The Sierra Navada National Park is a half hour drive away, for those who like walking, as are the beautiful stone villages of the Alpujarras.
