In a secluded, rural location in the lower foothills of Las Alpujarras, this holiday property has an attractive bungalow-style feel ...
"I wanted to say thank you to yourselves and to the house owner of ZA77, as we had an amazing holiday. The house was absolutely perfect and was exactly as described on the website. The location was great - near enough to Orgiva and close enough to Granada and the coast. The views of the surrounding hills were beautiful. "

From 550 € to 850 € per week.
Located in the Tíjola countryside area close to Órgiva, this purpose-built holiday home mixes traditional and modern elements of design to procure an attractive bungalow-style feel.
Neat and bright, in both layout and decoration, it is a simple, cheerful little property.
It is private and quiet, despite being just off the country lane that follows the river valley from Órgiva to the property.
The entrance and terrace face away from the lane while fencing erected around the pool and gardens gives privacy. It has a pretty, lawned garden area with olive trees where the children can play.
The house is open-plan to suit the sunny climate and has a small shaded terrace, where one can enjoy barbecues and other meals al fresco.
Inside, it's all on one floor, with the two bedrooms leading off beyond an archway from the living / dining room. They are separated by the bathroom. Archways also divide off the living space from the kitchen area.
Perfect for a young family on a budget, or for anyone who just wants to combine rural peace and quiet with visits to Granada, the high mountains and the Mediterranean coast.
There's so much to do from here. For the energetic there's wonderful hiking in the mountains, year-round cycling, downhill skiing in winter (Órgiva is 1½ hour's drive from the ski slopes) and horse riding, as well as water-sports and golf on the coast.
And, when you need to stock up with a few provisions - or just fancy a stroll down to town - don't take the car: it's a very pleasant 20 minute walk from here to Órgiva.
If you want a little beach life, it's just over half an hour's drive from here to the Costa Tropical and its Mediterranean resort towns Salobreña, Almuñecar and Nerja.
On this stretch of coast you can choose between fairly isolated, beautiful coves or any one of the different sized resort towns. A casual fish or seafood lunch at one of the beach restaurants is always a delight.
Granada, less than an hour away, is an amazing city of unique shops, an Arab quarter, cafes and restaurants and, of course, the famous Alhambra Palace, with its fantastic architecture and ancient, beautiful gardens dating back to the 11th century.
Closer to home, this is an excellent base for discovering the real 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.
Discover, too, the eight centuries of Moorish heritage in the traditional, white-washed high mountain villages of the area 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 Trevelez ham.
A trip up into the high mountains is always a lovely day out.
Just five minutes drive from town, Órgiva, with its eclectic mix of old and new cultures, is always a worthwhile experience. Its Thursday morning market is a thriving affair - definitely worth a visit.
As one client said, "even at our age we still have the spirit of adventure and Orgiva lived up to all expectations. I would be quite happy to sit with a coffee every day in the plaza above the covered market (with the odd brandy or two thrown in plus those delicious freshly made churros)".
"I am a great Chris Stewart fan and I can understand why he likes the area so much".
