    "Fabulously chilled"

    Two wonderful weeks at El Nido with our eight and nine year old boys. The perfect place to unwind, read by the pool and enjoy the sunshine. Loads of good restaurants in walking distance and plenty of day trips when you want to go further afield (the white villages, the coast, Granada were the three we managed). Perfect hosts and their perfect pets looked after us beautifully - there when we needed them but nowhere to be seen when we didn't.

    'We had a lovely relaxing time in such beautiful and peaceful surroundings. thanks you so much! Enjoyed the gorgeous Indian meal on our last night, it was a real feast and well worth it. Very many thanks for a delightful time in El Nido. A fantastic spot to unwind and relax! Clare and Ainsley always available but in and unobtrusive way thanks for everything. House was everything we expected and more! Totally relaxing and a wonderful place to unwind. We had good weather. Pleasurable visits from the animals (from next door). Would highly recommend Ainsleys cooking! Both Clare and Ainsley are excellent hosts - would highly recommend reflexology. Have had a wonderful time’

    About the Owner

    Ainsley and I have lived around the Orgiva area for the last 20 plus years and have had various businesses including our 2 holiday cottages. We live next door to the cottages and are on hand in case of need along with our 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 chickens. We look after the cottages ourselves.

    Year property purchased: 2000

    Why this location?

    The area is very unspoilt as there is no industry here and we have the cleanest air in Europe. We have spanish neighbours and live in the countryside but within easy access to the local town of Orgiva and we can walk within a few minutes into town so we do not have to drive all the time. We are 454 metres above sea level and are a short drive away from the white washed villages on the southern slopes of the sierra nevada mountain range. The coast and beaches are a 30 minute drive and have larger shops and clean beaches too so we have the best of both worlds. Airports are easy to drive to as the motorway is 15 minutes away.

    What are the unique benefits of the property?

    The cottages are very well equipped and as we are living here we can be of assistance to aid your holiday experience in case of any questions or give you help if you may need. We are to be found next door but we keep ourselves to ourselves so not to interrupt your holidays and we make sure the pools and gardens are kept clean before you awake! We make bread if you want and the chickens provide fresh eggs and we usually have fresh veg. from the gardens around us if you want to sample some of the local produce. The town of Orgiva has everything you need so you do not need to bring "the kitchen sink" and we have really good internet access with wifi in the cottages.
