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.
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.
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.
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.
Weather permitting, the swimming pool will be open from May to mid October
The house is the younger sister of the next door cottage, this one with two bedrooms (also with its own private pool). For more information, click here.
