Villa Description

A great place for a holiday

Close enough to town to be able to stroll there whenever you feel like it, yet far enough away to enjoy the tranquillity of the wonderful nature all around.

This attractive little cottage is hidden away behind trees down a short, gravel drive amongst gorgeous countryside just a few minutes' from Órgiva.

Close enough to town to be able to stroll there whenever you feel like it, yet far enough away to enjoy the tranquillity of the wonderful nature all around, it's a great place for a holiday.

All on one floor, there is a comfortable lounge / diner which opens through to the shaded terrace, barbecue area, pool and garden outside.

At the other end of the room, the kitchen is separated off by a bar counter. The double bedroom and the bathroom (shower over bath tub) lead off.

Both the living room and the bedroom have air conditioning and there's WiFi internet connection. A child's bed is available (if required) for a supplement.

Warm and wonderful

Here you will spend days and evenings outdoors, lounging by and taking dips in the delightful swimming pool.

It's neat, tidy and cheerful with its red tiled floors and beamed ceilings. There are some nice home-made touches such as the hand-crocheted curtains. All in all, a smart and sunny holiday home.

Flanking, and belonging to the property, is an olive grove with trees of tremendous age.

This is the younger, smaller sister villa of our ever popular ZA 35 which is next door (and has two bedrooms).

Enjoying the warm and wonderful microclimate of the lower Alpujarras, it is especially inviting to spend days and evenings outdoors, lounging by and taking dips in the delightful swimming pool.

And, when you need to stock up with a few provisions - or just fancy a stroll down town - it's just a few minutes walk to Órgiva.

Orgiva

An interesting - many would call it unique - mix of modern Spanish, more traditional Alpujarran characteristics and seekers of an alternative lifestyle.

A cosmopolitan, thriving and friendly little town (population 5,000), it's effectively the "capital" of Las Alpujarras, where you will find everything from little supermarkets to banks, restaurants and bars.

These spill out onto the pavements either side of the main plaza, always a good place to take a coffee and watch the world go by.

With its eclectic mix of old and new cultures, the town really comes alive each Thursday morning for the weekly market. Streets lined with stalls sell fruits and vegetables (there's some excellent organic produce), hand made crafts and clothes. For many it's just an excuse to head into town to meet up with friends.

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.

From the snows to the seas

Between the highest mountains in Spain and the Mediterranean Sea, Las Alpujarras is one of the most enchanting and beautiful regions in the world.

Surrounded by mountains, it's a rural paradise, brought to life, of course, by Chris Stewart in his best seller, "Driving Over Lemons".

Beyond there's Granada, the dramatic scenery and beautiful Moorish villages of the high mountains, or Mediterranean beaches to choose from. In 45 minutes you can be visiting the famous Alhambra Palace in Granada or just soaking up the city's wonderful culture. 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.

A further 20 minutes up the mountain road from Granada will take you to the Sierra Nevada ski resort. Among Europe's highest resorts it has a long season, normally from the end of November to the end of April or even into May.

Heading south, you can soon be enjoying a seafood lunch on the beaches of The Costa Tropical in one of the small resort towns, Salobreña, Almuñecar or La Herradura. The more "international" resort of Nerja is a little further along the coast. With a strong British presence (you can have a curry here ... ) it boasts 16 kilometres of beaches with powdery sand and sparkling clear water.

If you want to stretch your legs, there's wonderful hiking and horse riding in some of the most beautiful mountain 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. Las Alpujarras invites you to experience it all in your own way. Almost always, under Andalucía's life-giving, golden sun.

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.
