About the Owner

We originally came to Orgiva as one week stop off on the way to Morocco, but ended up staying for 3m. When we finally decided to move to Spain in 1999 we already had friends in Orgiva so it was an easy choice. Our children are now grown, our daughter working in Madrid and our son at Granada University, both of course fluent in Spanish.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pool is perfect, The location wonderful. Night sky cosmic.

It is wonderfully peaceful and tranquil here - very relaxing but there is also lots to see and do.

The property looked great on the internet and we weren't disappointed. Nice location between Granada and the coast.

Lovely peaceful restful holiday- Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, we had a really lovely time, just relaxing, eating, and swimming in the warm pool, perfect for kids as it has a lot of shallow parts. Visited beautiful mountain villages, and ate well. Especially pleasing was being able to have breakfast in the lovely flower covered area outside the front, and then dinner /barbeque on the back patio watching the sun set.

Charming villa in amazing countryside with excellent pool

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely villa for two weeks and it made a great place from which to sample both the delights of the Alpujarras and the Sierra Nevada as well as the coast. The accommodation was comfortable and we were well looked after by the two cats. The pool was a perfect size and had a shady sitting area which was good as I burn easily. There was a large garden although it was a bit parched in August. My son was very happy with the wi-fi access. I would recommend this for a couple or small family who wants peace and quiet but not to be too far away from shops and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The pool is certainly a delight in July and August and we're pleased you enjoyed the shady areas which are new this season. The house is within walking distance of Orgiva - although a hot walk in July and August and there are plenty of good restaurants there

Beautiful house in a beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

A friend and I stayed at the Cortijo Rosa for a week in mid-July. It suited us perfectly. The accomodation is simple, but had everything that we needed. There was an abundance of outside space, plenty of which was in the shade. We spent large chunks of every day in or around the pool, with it's mountain views. Although the house is on the edge of town, it feels like a tranquil oasis (albeit with occasional reminders that there are neighbours all around). The nights were cool, and the screened windows meant that we could open up the house to the breeze, without worrying about biting insects (although they were few anyway). The surrounding area was perfect for walking and cycling - maybe a little hot for that in July though.

I would definitely recommend this property, and would consider coming back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to write a review. Pleased you enjoyed the house and pool. The summers are quite hot as you found - a better time for activities like biking or walking would be the spring or autumn or even winter!

Lovely authentic property, clean, tidy.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time in Orgiva. This property is really authentic in design, but also clean and tidy with all the essentials. The pool and gardens were great in June with a great view of the mountains. There is also plenty of exploring to be done not far away (by hire car) with very scenic mountain villages. Chris and Sarah were very helpful hosts. Thanks for a great week!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive review. We are glad you enjoyed the cool of the pool and the new shades we have put up on the patio. The mountain villages are an easy drive away and much cooler than Orgiva.

Peaceful traditional house with pool and lovely views

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this attractively converted traditional house, which remained delightfully cool inside while temperatures rose outside. We made good use of the pool, the hammock and the shady eating out area, as well as exploring Orgiva and Lanjeron, discovering some of the delights of Granada and visiting a few of the pretty white villages of the Alpujarras. Thanks to Sarah, who made us welcome.

Absolutely delightful traditional cortijo, small but perfectly formed

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughters and I stayed at Casa Rosa for 5 days, it was delightful. The traditional cortijo house is clean, cosy, comfortably furnished and well maintained. It has its own private courtyard leading to the pool. The property is close to Orgiva, a short drive on quiet lanes through olive groves or a pleasant half hour ramble. The hosts Chris and Sarah are welcoming, making sure we had all we needed and also giving us enough space to have privacy. There was a small problem with the hot water and they fixed it right away.

I would definitely recommend.
