Studio Cottage with Private Pool situated in Small Hamlet

Studio Cottage with Private Pool situated in Small Hamlet

Overview

Property

Updated: 22-May-2015
Cottage Near Orgiva, Las Alpujarras, Andalucia - Self Catering or Breakfast/Evening Meal Provided

La Rueda, our cortijo and the cottage we rent, is situated 5km outside Orgiva in a hamlet called Los Agustines, at the southern foothills of the Sierra Nevada. This is still a 'living' community of mainly vegetable farmers who till their land below us mostly by hand. Sit in your hammock and watch them. Often one of our lovely neighbours knocks on the door to share his produce with us. Every afternoon some goats with bells around their necks make their way down to the fields, or Paco or Jose go by with their mule. This place really is as idyllic as it sounds! Our cottage is set in its own small garden and is surrounded by lots of lovely colours and smells. If you don't feel like cooking and want to have a relaxing time, let us know and we will prepare you breakfast and/or a lovely surprise dinner menu on one of our charming terraces! Come, relax and enjoy!

About the Owner

What can we tell you about us? We, that is Stefan and his wife Naomi and of course the lazy cats Blackey, Tamy and Felix. (He, Austrian, she, British; cats, Spanish) We are all very lucky bums and enjoy every day anew living in this wonderful, wonderful part of the world!

After many years of travelling the world, we happened upon this area and fell in love with it. First we rebuilt La Rueda and then bought another fallen down ruin in the Guajar valley, which we did up into La Cueva, a very special and cozy property.

Come and see for yourself, why we enjoy living here so much!

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘This was our first attempt at booking a holiday on the internet and doing everything ourselves. Our concerns thankfully proved to be groundless and we ended up at La Rueda, a peaceful and beautiful place of tranquility’ - Barbara and Peter Gilbert, Derbyshire

‘Most magical place, the renovations, planting lighting and different levels have all been done with utmost care and imagination. Stefan and Naomi are such lovely people and appear to be living the dream that most of us have, but aren’t brave enough to follow’ - Glin and Steve Wallis, Belper, UK



‘What a lovely place you have got here! It is like a little paradise’ - Ivor and Jorien, Netherlands



Acceuil très chaleureux de Stephen et Naomi dès notre arrivée en fin de journée - Avons pu apprécier les talents culinaires de Naomi avec la mise en valeur des produits locaux - Un endroit parfait pour découvrir la vrai Andalousie , rien à voir avec la côte hyper touristique bien que les plages ne soient qu'à 40 mns de voiture.

Beautiful hideaway

  • 5 out of 5
A narrow road, originally used by donkies, from the village Orgiva takes you to this beautiful, relaxing hideaway. We were looking for a place far away from big hotels and lots of people, but close to the nature and silence, and we found it at La Rueda. Sitting on the terrace by the pool looking at the mountains was wonderful. Even though the property lies right next to the owner, we could enjoy everything totally undisturbed, because Stefan and Naomi were so good hosts! Stefan was very helpful about trips in the area (walks in the mountain around Capileira, Granada, the market in Orgiva etc.). Naomi makes wonderful cooking. It is clean and cosy both inside and outside. We already have recommanded this place to people we meet.

Relaxation!

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from our eighth visit to La Rueda. This speaks for itself! The Casita,garden and pool are in a beautiful setting. Plenty of walks and treks if you are feeling energetic or trees to sit under by the pool for reading.Real peace, but with the town of Orgiva nearby.If you are very lucky,Naomi and Stefan will come down the garden steps with some coffee and maybe cake!...they are very thoughtful hosts.We cannot recommend La Rueda enough.

Paradise found

  • 5 out of 5
This is our second time to visit this gem of a property. What a find!
If you are seeking a romantic peaceful place to stay with incredible views, go no further. Private use of the pool was a real bonus.
The property which is decorated in local style is beautifully kept and spotless.
The pretty garden full of flowers just adds that special touch.
We would definitely recommend this excellent little hide away.
Hope to come back again one day soon. Thank you

Wonderful

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first trip to this part of Spain and WOW, what an amazing place.
This property is a beautiful place to kick back and relax. Very private and it has everything you need. It is exactly as described in the listing, but the best bit is the pool. Very welcoming in the 34 deg heat we had in June. Sitting next to the pool on the patio at night listening to the wildlife was sublime.
The nearest town of Orgiva is only about 4km away and has plenty of restaurants and bars. The town square is lined with orange trees dripping with fruit !!. I would recommend eating at the campsite on the road out of town, very friendly staff and good food at a reasonable price. There is also a market on Thursday that you cannot miss.
The region is full of amazing places to visit and you definitely should go and explore. We took a road trip down to Motril and then followed the coast road to La Rabita, head up the A345 and then follow the C333 back to Los Tablones. At some point you end up on a peak about 4000 ft and the views are awesome. Mediterranean shimmering on one side and then turn 180 deg and you see the snow capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada.
The Alhambra palace in Granada is a must see, but book it a few weeks before you travel as tickets are limited.
All in all La Rueda is a beautiful place and the owners are very friendly warm people who will help in any way they can and after reading the guest book I wish I had sampled some of their cooking, sounds delicious!!!!.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and will be going back as soon as I can.

Location

From the Owner

This place is magic and we bought it without thinking long, we just knew that this was it!! And we never will regret it and are greatful every day anew to be able to live here. Like one guest wrote in the guestbook:"....if paradise is only half as nice!" We are out in the campo, in a little hamlet, with extremely friendly and warm neighbours, who forever knock on the door to share some produce with us!! Yet we are only 5 ks away from Orgiva, that offers everything we need. Great place to live and be!

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beaches are from half an hour away. Salobreña, Almuñecar, La Herradura or Nerja to name only a few. Between La Herradura and Nerja are a couple of unspoilt and very private little coves, bring your picnic and enjoy the tranquility. Enquire about diving in the diving centres of Marina del Este or La Herradura.

Travel:

Malaga is 1 1/2hrs and Almeira 2 hours away. Details of airlines offering cheap flights will be provided upon request. A car is highly recommended - pick up from airport can be arranged. New: Ryan Air now flies directly to Granada (1 hour from us) from London Luton and Liverpool. Stansted and Manchester now also offer flights to Granada, also Paris, Milan, Amsterdam and Geneva.

Distances:

The nearest beach at Salobrena is 30 mins away. Granada 1 hour, Las Alpujarras 20 mins, Nerja with its caves and the nearby beautiful village of Frigiliana are about 1 hour away. Cordoba, Jaen, Guadix as well as Nijar and the coastal nature park of Cabo de Gata can all be visited as a daytrip.

Further Details:

Come and relax! You want to be active? Then join us for coffee and cake in the afternoon! Maybe you'd like to be included in the daily activities? Then help us or our neighbours to pick olives or harvest vegetables or just watch us doing it. You can go for short walks or longer hikes - down into the country past all kinds of exotic trees and/or up into the hills and mountains of the Sierra Nevada. A short stroll into the country is highly recommended during the full moon! Sit by the pool at night with your favorite drink, switch off all the lights and enjoy the moonrise or set, awesome! On moonfree nights you can stargaze and explore the whole milkyway and don´t forget to make a wish with one of the many shooting stars. Go sightseeing in Granada with its famous Alhambra (50 minutes away) or visit the white washed villages of the Alpujarras (20 minutes away). Ask us about local handicrafts (pottery, weaving, leather weaving) and woodworks etc. Orgiva (5km away) offers everything you might need - there is a colourful weekly market (Thursdays), daily market, shops, cafes, bars, banks and ATMs, dentist, doctor, internet cafe etc. If you are looking for more activity then ask us about horse-riding, guided hiking trips as well as reiki, reflexology and different types of massages - all of these can be arranged. Maybe you are looking for Spanish lessons? This is your home from home, just lean back and unwind! We speak English, German and of course Spanish.
