Holiday Cottage near Orgiva, Las Alpujarras, Spain - Rural Retreat Offering Stunning, Panoramic Mountain Views
Beautifully modernised open-plan casita, set in an acre of private land, offers modern comforts alongside antique character. Ideal for a couple looking to escape the city or a young family - travel cot and high chair are available on request. Casita Florita was renovated in 2011, bringing the comforts of home into a traditionally built Spanish cottage with a unique Moroccan / Indian style. Antique features include Indian doors and hand-carved stone windows. Elsewhere, new double glazed windows sit next to a bespoke kitchen, with marble worktops throughout. The bathroom also contains antique Spanish tiles. The surrounding land hosts many orange, olive, fig and eucalyptus trees and offers uninterrupted, stunning mountain views; of the Sierra Nevada in one direction, the Sierra Lujar in the other. There are numerous shady areas to relax in: on one of three terraces, beneath a large gazebo, in a hammock strung between trees or on an antique bed under a fig tree.
