Review Icon"Lovely villa and fab pool. Had a great week with highlights including a trip up to the mountains and down to the coast. Capileira and Pampaneira well worth visiting, even bought a rug, Salobrena nice old town but the beach was empty. Lanjaron surprisingly pleasant. Granada a bit hectic but but a fun bus journey. Restaurants in town lovely."

Review Icon"This is a delightful little villa with a lovely garden, within easy walking distance to the village and ideally situated to travel a bit further afield and explore the Alpujarras. We had a delightful fortnight, didn't want to come home!"

Villa Description

Fantastic, fabulous

"Fantastic, fabulous, so incredibly relaxing and comfortable. Everything we needed was there for a perfect holiday. Well done guys".

The small town of Órgiva turns into countryside just a lemon's throw from the market square. Here, albeit close to town, this little cottage and its lovely gardens are private and tranquil, hidden away behind trees down a short, gravel drive.

Built in traditional style with tiled floors and beamed ceilings inside, neatly and comfortably furnished, it also has an attractive porch and terrace outside as well as the lawned and colourfully planted garden and pool. Flanking, and belonging to the property, is an olive grove with trees of tremendous age.

The cottage is sunny and modern, a simple but comfortable, pretty holiday home.

Enjoying Órgiva's delightful microclimate, it is especially inviting to spend days and evenings outdoors, lounging by and taking dips in the lovely, good-sized swimming pool.

Sunny and modern

Built in traditional style, neatly and comfortably furnished, it opens through glass doors to a shaded terrace and the delightful gardens beyond.

All on one floor, there is a comfortable lounge / diner which opens through glass doors to the shaded terrace and gardens beyond. It is separated from the kitchen by a bar counter.

The two bedrooms and the bathroom (shower over bath tub) lead off.

The living room and the bedrooms have air conditioning; and there's WiFi internet connection.

Being on the edge of town it enjoys the best of both worlds, in the countryside yet just a few minutes walk to tapas bars, shops and restaurants.

This has long been a favourite with our clients. Comments such as "We had the best of holidays. We loved the privacy, peace and quiet and the closeness to town", and "we had a brilliant holiday and the villa was lovely" are typical.

Dipping in ... and out

Maybe you will spend your time doing very little, dipping in and out of the pool, perhaps enjoying a well earned siesta … isn't that what a holiday is all about!

It's very handy for Órgiva's Thursday morning market too, a thriving affair and an excuse for many locals to go into town to meet up with friends. Definitely worth a visit.

Located on the southern slopes of the Natural Park of Sierra Nevada, in the wide valley of the Rio Guadalfeo, it is effectively "the capital" of Las Alpujarras.

Views are superb, with the often snow capped peaks of Sierra Nevada to the north and the graceful curves of Sierra Lújar dominating the horizon to the south.

It's an excellent base for discovering the essence of Las Alpujarras. The countryside all around, in the fertile Vale de Órgiva, is beautiful. Swathes of orange and lemon trees, olives and pomegranates, bougainvillea, morning glory and jasmine bring joy to a sunny land. Surrounded by mountains, it's a rural paradise.

The best of holidays

"We had the best of holidays. We loved the privacy, peace and quiet and the closeness to town"

It's also a natural crossroads : four roads depart from here, one linking Las Alpujarras with Salobreña and the Costa Tropical to the south; another heads west, through Lanjarón, leading on to Granada.

A third one, through Torvizcón, takes one through the foothills of La Contraviesa into the remoter villages of the Eastern Alpujarras; the fourth winds up into the Sierra Nevada, ascending to Pampaneira, Bubión, Capileira, Trevélez and the other classical Moorish villages in the high mountains.

Both the magical city of Granada and the beaches of the Costa Tropical are within easy driving distance for day trips, both less than 45 minutes away.

Or stay within the wonderful mountain world of Las Alpujarras and discover the eight centuries of Moorish heritage in the traditional, white-washed mountain villages and their flourishing local craftwork (hand woven carpets, textiles and wicker-work), not to mention the regions' cuisine and excellent food products such as the mountain-cured Trevélez ham.

Beautiful in their simplicity, the little mountain villages appear to tumble haphazardly down the steep hillsides, connected by a labyrinth of narrow, winding cobbled streets. A picture to behold, glistening white in the sun, roses and geraniums spilling from every nook and cranny.

A joyous land of sunshine, snowy mountains and some of the most splendid scenery imaginable. From the snows to the sea, there are panoramic views in every direction, from the peaks of Veleta and Mulhacén to the southern sierras and the Mediterranean beyond.

For the energetic there's wonderful hiking in the mountains, year-round cycling, downhill skiing in winter (Órgiva is 1¼ hour's drive from the ski slopes) and horse riding, as well as water-sports and golf on the coast.

Maybe you will spend your time doing very little, dipping in and out of the pool, perhaps enjoying a well earned siesta … isn't that what a holiday is all about!

Excursions

  • Órgiva is a natural communication centre: four roads depart from here, one linking Las Alpujarras with Salobreña and the Costa Tropical to the south; another heads west, through Lanjarón, leading on to Granada. A third one, through Torviscón, takes one through the foothills of the Contraviesa into the remoter villages of the Eastern Alpujarras; the fourth winds up into the Sierra Nevada, ascending to Pampaneira, Bubión, Capileira, Trevélez and the other high mountain villages.
  • Órgiva is an interesting - many would call it unique - mix of modern Spanish, more traditional Alpujarran characteristics and seekers of an alternative lifestyle.
  • All seem to live harmoniously here, local dumper-truck drivers alongside tai-chi practitioners; traditional Spanish Catholics alongside Zen Buddhists. It's an eclectic mix and all the more interesting for it.
  • It has developed service industries to cater for the needs of a very wide catchment area. Everything from supermarkets and pizzerias, banks and building suppliers, camp sites and petrol stations. The weekly (Thursday morning) market is not to be missed.
  • The Costa Tropical is just half an hour away. The closest beaches are at Salobreña. Further along the coast, there's bigger Almuñecar, the beautiful bay of La Herradura and then the much more "international" resort of Nerja at the start of the Costa del Sol. With a strong British presence (you can have a curry here ... ) it boasts 16 kilometres of beaches with powdery sand and sparkling clear water.
  • On this stretch of coast you can choose between fairly isolated, beautiful coves or any one of the different sized resort towns. Cheerful, peaceful, laid back places in the best tradition of the Spanish seaside, a relaxed lunch at one of the beach bars is highly recommended - even in winter if the sun is shining!
  • Just 45 minutes away, Granada is, of course, a must-see city. Soaring high above is the spectacular back drop of the snow-covered Sierra Nevada mountains. And what a city lies below, a city of classical beauty, the jewel in the Spanish Crown.
  • The mesmerising Alhambra Palace and its exquisite gardens, one of the world's greatest wonders; the narrow, cobbled streets and beautiful walled gardens of the ancient Arab quarter, El Albaicín; the magnificent Cathedral, just one of many superb examples of Renaissance architecture; the caves of Sacramonte, nostalgic legacy of the gypsies.
  • A city which inspired García Lorca, Andalucía's finest poet, it is, above all, a people's city, full of life and colour, energy and fun.
  • On the northern slopes of Sierra Nevada, top class skiing is 1¼ hours drive away. This can be excellent but avoid weekends, when the Granadinos swarm up from the city.
  • If wonderful mountain scenery is your thing, then stay right here in Las Alpujarras! Between the highest mountains in Spain and the Mediterranean Sea, this is a joyous land of sunshine, snowy mountains and some of the most splendid scenery imaginable. From the snows to the sea, there are panoramic views in every direction, from the peaks of Veleta and Mulhacén to the southern sierras and the Mediterranean beyond.
  • The high mountains have their own special beauty: wild and brooding in winter, they come alive in early summer with the scents of wild herbs and the spectacle of tiny, brilliantly coloured flowers, many of them unique to Sierra Nevada.
  • Altitude and sun have combined to evolve more endemic botanical species in Las Alpujarras than in all the rest of Europe. Mountain goats, wild boar, foxes, eagles, goshawks and partridge inhabit the sierras. Mules and donkeys still labour in the fields, sheep and goats graze the hillsides. Trout fill the rivers.
  • The Moors took refuge in these hills and resisted here, maintaining their customs and way of life for well over a hundred years after they were expelled from Granada in 1492 by their Christian conquerors. Las Alpujarras was their final battlefield in Spain.
  • Their legacy is to be seen everywhere: in the distinctive architecture of the mountain villages and in the intricate system of irrigation waterways which they built and which still keep the landscape green and fertile, fed by the snows melting high in the sierras above.
  • The architecture of the little mountain villages is unique in Europe and is identical to Berber originals in the Atlas mountains of Northern Africa. With dwellings characterised by flat roofs and prominent chimney pots, the villages were built by the Berber settlers whose creation imitated and followed the half-natural, half-man made designs of their own mountain lands.
  • Beautiful in their simplicity, the villages appear to tumble haphazardly down the steep hillsides, connected by a labyrinth of narrow, winding cobbled streets. A picture to behold, glistening white in the sun, roses and geraniums spilling from every nook and cranny.

Activities

  • Las Alpujarras offers some of the finest mountain walking, horse riding and cycling anywhere in Europe.
  • And, of course, here you are well placed to travel to the ski resort high in La Sierra Nevada.
  • On the Costa Tropical, activities on offer include scuba, cavern and technical diving, as well as horse riding and tennis, paragliding, climbing, and abseiling.
