Cottage in Orgiva, Las Alpujarras, Andalucia, Spain

A very large covered terrace, built in old fashioned bricks and wood, and the breathtaking "Olympic" swimming pool (20 x 10 m !!!) are set in the stunning scenery of a semi-tropical garden.

Sleepy hideaway in the hot Spanish sun

  • 4 of 5

We (family of 4 with childeren of 15 & 20) had a wonderful stay in this charming cottage, tucked away behind electronic gates just outside of the town of Orgiva. As rustic as it looks from the photos, the accommodation is simple enough - everything works as described and there is also a CD player, TV & WiFi (though not throughout).

What is delightful, is the feel of the place - a small orange orchard to the rear, olive & pomegranate trees and some wonderful sub tropical plants make it seem that you are in a different, by-gone era.

The hosts property is right next door but because of the design you hardly feel overlooked at all (plus they are are out working in the town most days)

There are a few farms locally so you will hear dogs barking but they are not loud enough to annoy. Dusk brings birds, bats and lizards - the latter using the lights of the front terrace to hunt moths and insects!.

The fab pool makes the hot days cool - a dip every hour or so did it for us, flip on the lights and the night time swimming was idyllic. Just over waist deep makes it is ideal great for youngish kids.

Pasqual, Loli & their daughter Alba are fantastic hosts - communication was good and they were there to help when we needed it. They also run a restaurant in the town which we recommend too.

Orgiva itself is hotchpotch of a place, it feels slightly off its best but I guess that is the same for most of southern europe just now - some nice bars, good supermarkets, artisan cheese & cake shops - a working spanish farming & tourism centre then throw in a sizable hippy community and there you have it.

Driving in and out you're going to be going along some amazing roads, keep to the speed limit and take care on the bends until you get used to it - lorries and coaches use these roads too!

We give it 4 stars because we have stayed in holiday accommodation that demands 5, this is a little different but because of the setting, the pool and the hosts - if you are looking for a clean, well run, rustic villa then this is for you.
