Review Icon"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. "

Villa Description

Neat and bright

The house mixes traditional and modern elements in an open-plan design which suits the sunny Mediterranean climate.

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.

Morning glory

Swathes of orange and lemon trees, olives and pomegranates, bougainvillea and jasmine bring joy to a sunny land.

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.

A happy home

Perfect for a young family or anyone who wants to combine rural peace and quiet with visits to Granada, the high mountains and the Mediterranean coast.

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.

Taking it easy, Orgiva-style

"I would be quite happy to sit with a coffee every day in the plaza (with the odd brandy or two thrown in, plus those delicious freshly made churros)".

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".

Around and About

This is an excellent base from which to explore this delightful and very beautiful part of Andalucía.

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.
