About the property

Tranquility and Mountain Views amidst Orchards on the Edge of Town

Casita Dori and Los Limones are two picturesque conjoint cottages, rented together, with all mod cons - two for the price of one! The property has the ideal location: only a short, 400 m walk from the edge of the town of Orgiva along a tarmacked road, yet with rural ambiance. Surrounded by a large landscaped garden and neighbour’s orchards, with its secure parking inside the walled property, Casita Dori provides peace and privacy.

Casita Dori provides perfect holiday accommodation for a family with older children, or for perhaps a group of friends. The two cottages are always rented together, with the exclusive use of the pool for you and your party, and even if you only wish to use one of the cottages, the other cottage will remain empty and at your disposal during your stay.

The cottages sleep 6 in 3 double bedrooms. There are 2 bathrooms, one in each cottage, with Internet in both.

Provided: a flat-screen 37” TV (English, German, Polish), WiFi Internet, CD, DVD. Dishwasher.

What a great find.

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a wonderful stay at this lovely villa. We closed the gates and were impressed with such great views and privacy. The gardens have lime, lemon and almond trees. Lovely peaceful setting, with the bonus of both villas and a great pool. Picked fresh limes for our gin and tonics. Short walk into town with its lovely tapas bars, restaurants and good supermarkets.

We had booked a month long Caribbean cruise for early 2019 but after our stay here my wife has suggested we cancel that and come back to this villa for a month instead. We have decided to do this.

Everything you want in a holiday and we have already booked for next year .. Thank you Anda.

Beautiful property in a fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property on the outskirts of Orgiva. Very quiet and peaceful and just a short walk into town. The gardens are beautiful and full of orange trees and it was so nice just sitting in the sun having a glass of wine relaxing after hard days cycling. The owner was very efficient and provided excellent instructions for us and Carmen the local manager was lovely and very helpful.

We will definitely be back again!

Lovely villa and pool, great for October sunshine!

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and comfortable villa with attractive fruit filled garden and a beautiful pool, we were swimming every day at the end of October! Carmen, the local manager looks after the villa very well, and is friendly and helpful.

The secluded location is only a few hundred yards from the edge of town and the closest bar - drinks with tapas for two for less than 5 euros! Several small supermarkets and plenty of restaurants and cafes in the town, with friendly welcoming people. Good local walking, and interesting places to visit within an easy drive - we went to the Alhambra Palace in Granada, and up the mountain roads to the "white villages" - the Thursday morning market made it a good day to stay in Orgiva.

A piece of paradise in rural Andalucia!

  • 5 of 5

I have had a lovely time at Casita Dori with my friends. The house is very private and not overlooked, surrounded by gardens but just of the edge of town. Casita Dori is just few minutes’ walk from the centre of Orgiva, and in the opposite direction, in no time at all you can also have a wonderful evening stroll up the hill where you have a very good view of the whole town and also of Sierra Nevada mountains.

The cottages are cozy and well equipped with attention to detail. I particularly enjoyed the big terrace overlooking the pool with the panoramic view of the Lujar Mountain.

When I enjoyed my solitary walks, my friends preferred to just laze by the pool in the garden full of fruit. We all swam every day even though it was the end of October.

If you need anything, Carmen who looks after the house is very helpful.

A lovely place to stay. Great location, quiet, lovely gardens and brilliant pool! Houses are lovely. A little basic, but in a 'rural Spanish sense', so there is everything that you need. I would return again and again. Easy walk into Orgiva. Fab! x

Magical situation

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a couple and 15 year old son. Fantastic villa, the pictures don't do it enough justice. The villas have the charming old Spanish style but with all the amenities needed. Wifi even able to be picked up at the pool and garden areas. Large bedroom area in Dorita. Our son loved his independent villa, hardly saw him! Pool deep so would not suit very young children. Gardens were delightful, beautifully laid out with grapefruit and oranges for breakfast and lemons for gin! Very peaceful, only the sounds of the birds, chickens, donkey and the odd dogs. Short walk to the town with a short steep hill just before the villa. Orgiva may not be the prettiest but enough shops, bars and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Orgiva is a bustling little market town, ideally located: ½ hr from the sea and unspoilt beaches and 1 hr from the vibrant city of Granada. There are numerous supermarkets, bars, restaurants, health food shops, banks, ATMs, pharmacies, a cinema and a Medical Centre. Orgiva is at the heart of ‘real Spain’ with its fiesta spirit. This part of Andalucia – known as Las Alpujarras – is the famous cradle of flamenco. It remains one of Europe´s most spectacular, peaceful and unspoilt areas, with unrivalled quality of light and unforgettable starry skies.

Orgiva nestles in a valley, surrounded by the foothills of the dramatic Sierra Nevada mountains (3 500 m, 39 ski runs). . Here, you can swim in your pool or eat oranges straight from the tree – against the backdrop of snow-capped peaks. From nearby hills, on a clear day, you can see not only the Mediterranean, but even Africa – the Rif Mountains of Morocco.

Must-see: Granada and the world-famous Alhambra Palace, a masterpiece of intricate Moorish architecture to rival the Taj Mahal, renowned for its fabled gardens and ornamental fountains. (1 hr / 50 km away).

Mediterranean beaches: the nearest seaside town is the picturesque Salobreña (1/2 hr away) with a Moorish castle on a towering rock. Drowning in tropical flowers, with palm-lined avenues, Salobreña rises from the sea like a white wedding cake; it is still unspoilt by mass tourism, with numerous beach restaurants, water sports and a 9-hole golf course. Here, on the beach, you can eat fish caught locally the same day. The port of Motril (also ½ hr away) has a hospital, the Al Campo hypermarket and many good fish restaurants. For the aqua park, go further afield to Almunecar, and visit the pretty, garden sea resort of La Herradura. Do visit the pretty seaside town of Nerja, with some of the best beaches, and its magnificent caves, huge caverns which are home to the world's largest stalagmite.

Another must-see: the Poqueira Valley (15 min away): the ancient Moorish ‘white pueblos' Pampaneira, Bubion and Capileira cling to the slopes of the Sierra Nevada – home to herds of wild mountain goats and wild boar. Here, time stands still and life goes on as of old; old men on donkeys or goatherds pass by and give you a friendly ‘hola’.

In the perfect, picture-postcard-pretty tiny village of Pampaneira (15 min away by car), prepare to be seduced by its abundance of craft shops with local products, enticing both to look at and eat or drink, as well as many bars and restaurants with tasty local fare. Come with plenty of pocket money! And do visit the chocolate factory (yes, you can sample the product)... Buy (and read!) 'Driving over Lemons', the humorous and informative international best seller by the local writer Chris Stewart, which will bring closer to you the region and its inhabitants.

The area is a paradise for nature lovers, walkers, cyclists, bird watchers, artists - or just anyone who wants to 'get away from it all' or else simply have fun!

Granada airport (Hispania Airlines), 1 hr. Malaga airport 1 hr 45min; both also reachable by bus. Thus, although car hire is recommended, it is not indispensable.

Other activities available in Orgiva: yoga, massage, healing treatments, painting classes, dance classes. Recreation Centre in Orgiva: tennis, football, badminton, aerobics, a municipal swimming pool.

Golf: The nearest golf course is the 9-hole Los Mariscos on the Playa Granada beach near Salobrena, where there is also a bar and a restaurant (30 km away).

Skiing: There are few places in the world where you can ski in the morning then head to the coast for a swim in the afternoon, but the resort of Sierra Nevada at the altitude of 2 100m is one. There you can ski till the end of April - and head back to Orgiva to swim in the pool, surrounded by orange trees bearing both fruit and fragrant blossom.
