Nivar is a hill village in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, which enjoys incredible views of the city of Granada and the snow-capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada. Nivar has a very well-regarded restaurant and two bars. There is also a pharmacy, estanco and two small supermarkets.
Nivar is very quiet in the winter months, and gets a little more lively in the summer.
The beach and the Sierra Nevada are less than one hour away by car and the city of Granada is about 20 minutes away.
