About Jo Cove

The property is jointly owned by friends Kath & Mark, Jo & Will. We all became great friends after spending a month sharing a house in Goa, India in 1996. We have all remained the greatest of friends and shared lots of travels and fun times since. In 2004 we had this mad idea that we’d build a house in Spain.

We ended up buying this beautiful plot of land and then spent a couple of years camping and sleeping in our hammocks on the land whilst we watched our jointly designed house slowly being built and coming to life.

Why Jo Cove chose Lanjarón

We ended up buying this beautiful plot of land and building a house! We all spent a couple of years camping and sleeping in our hammocks on the land whilst we watched our jointly designed house slowly being built and coming to life.

What makes this villa unique

We all absolutely love spending time at Casa Mojo and now enjoy lots of family trips sleeping in luxury, enjoying the amazing pool and the tranquility and beauty of the location. We all hope you will enjoy your time at Casa Mojo as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! No complaints! The house was great and everything was setup nicely. The kids loved the pool, we enjoyed the weather and the local establishments. It was very convenient located and the books and brochures in the house were very helpful. 5 stars!! Andrew Casper - June 2012.



Casa Mojo was absolutely lovely, you have a lovely villa in a beautiful place.

We had a fabulous week, I am sure we would love to visit again sometime. Brian McKee - July 2012



The house was idyllic and we had a fabulous time. Julie Holland - July 2012



We had a brilliant time at Casa Mojo. We really enjoyed the walks – GR7 from Pampaneiro to Canar, GR142 Lanjaron to Orgiva and the round town route.

Never had such a well fitted out kitchen area in a rental before – very much appreciated.Having your own almonds and olive oil is very cool!

Have raved about the property to loads of friends – I hope extra business comes your way from that. Alan & Margaret Russell - October 2012

Stunning mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property set in an idealic location. The facilities and layout of the property are excellent and make a perfect family holiday home. The pool was fantastic and kept the kids entertained. We also enjoyed the extensive garden an picking fresh figs, lemons and almonds from the many trees. Great wildlife without having to move from the pool!. Great location for exploring the alpajurra region, as well as Granada and the andalucian coast.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review Sharon. The pool is such a hit with children and yes, you were there at a great time for figs, lemons and almonds, although each time of the year seems to brings something to pick from the trees. Glad you got to enjoy some local Alpujarras wildlife from the poolside too!

Perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend 9 nights at Casa Mojo. The villa is lovely and everything has been thought of, you won't be disappointed. Lazy days were spent by the pool which was a perfect way to cool off when temperatures were hot hot hot!! All information provided about the villa was spot on and Kath was very helpful. We drove into Lanjaron on more than one occasion for a stroll along the shops and then stopped for jamon and a refreshing drink. I would definitely recommend Casa Mojo and hope to return.

Perfectly Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mojo is situated on property that includes olive, orange, lemon and almond trees. The views of the valley are incredible. The floor plan is very large so we had plenty of room to relax. We enjoyed eating our meals outside and cooked most of the time at home.

Both Lanjoran and Orgiva are fun to stroll around. We did some bicycle riding but the options are somewhat limited and the area is all about hills.

Overall a very nice place to stay and we would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Hi Scott Thank you so much for your review. It's so nice to hear you enjoyed your time at Casa Mojo, and you were impressed by the position of the house and the stunning views of Sierra de Lujar. There's definitely lots of hills to cycle up in the surrounding area! Many thanks for recommending Casa Mojo to others. Best wishes Kath

House is just like in pictures.Very clean and the surroundings are beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely time at "Casa Mojo" with my husband. House was well equipped and clean. Garden was beautiful and we had quite a few walks there. Spectacular scenery.

It was otherwise very peaceful but the only minus was the neighbourhood dogs that we're barking quite a bit.

The location of the house is just perfect. Orgiva and Lanjaron were both very close. We recommend visiting Lanjaron and there you should

go to the "Balneario de Lanjaron- spa" and the garden "Parque Salao". Lanjaron also has nice restaurants,Orgivas Teteria Baraka has very tasty food too!Also the closest restaurant to the house Venta El Buñuelo has great service and tasty food,and nice views too!

I would recommend this place to everyone. Very good service from the owners and everything went smoothly.

Casa Mojo.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and myself booked Casa Mojo as a base to climb and canyon in Sierra Nevada. I loved the casa that much I booked to return in June, 2017. A lovely welcome pack, food and wine. The cupboards stacked with herbs and spices, great as I love cooking!

The pool was so enticing after a climb on the limestone cliffs. The gardens are a pleasure, fruit and nuts to pick, obviously dependant on the time of year but we landed lucky. Excellent place and the owners are fantastically helpful. Try it!

Location

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beaches are at Motril and at the old Arab fortress town of Salobreña, a half hour drive through fabulous scenery to the south. Here you can eat in the excellent fish restaurants and visit the old Arab fortress. La Herradura, a little further along the coast, is in a dramatic bay, with some wonderful beach bars and restaurants.

Travel:

Malaga airport is 140km from Casa Mojo, approximately a 1 hour 30 minute drive and Granada airport only 60km, under an hour away. A car is highly recommended.

Distances:

Casa Mojo is situated 500m off the main road up a concrete track, in between the interesting towns of Orgiva and Lanjaron, both 5km away. Orgiva is a bustling place with a colourful Thursday market. Lanjaron is a noted mountain spa town and known as the gateway to the Alpujarras. It's home to a lovely shaded park and an interesting ruined Moorish castle. Both offer a wide range of shops, restaurants, cafes, banks supermarkets and Internet cafes.

Further Details:

The villa is named ‘Casa Mojo’ as the area it sits in is called ‘ La Mojoneras’, meaning ‘markerstones’, which are white stones on the land to mark out the borders between properties. ‘Mojo’ is a shortened version of this. The villa is set in an acre and a half at an altitude of 650m above sea level, with magnificent views of the valley and mountains, olive and almond terraces intermixed with oranges, lemons and pomegranates. Nearby is a wild rocky hillside, glorious with thyme, rosemary, gorse and broom from autumn to spring. The terraces look their best in the spring, dappled with poppies and borage amongst clovers and grass. You can weave your way along the terraces from top to bottom, or use the naturally crafted steps to take you to the lower terraces.

The pool is available for the months May to September. Because of its secluded position the villa and grounds are a perfect spot for complete relaxation. Please note: Young children must be supervised in and around the pool at all times. NO DIVING as the pool is not deep enough.

The swimming pool and nearby ‘acequia’s (irrigation stream) attract a lot of wild life. The arrival of the swallows, followed by the bee eaters is a joyful experience. Hoopoes dip over the terraces and eagles and other birds of prey swoop down from the mountains. A pair of eagles can often be seen soaring on the ridge above the villa. Lizards and geckos abound as well as intriguing praying mantis and numerous butterflies and moths.

The valleys and foothills between the Sierra Nevada and the coastal range are of great interest to walkers, birdwatchers, botanists, writers and painters. There are many activities including pony trekking, paragliding, golf and skiing. The last outpost of the Moors after the fall of Granada in the 16th Century, their Berber villages dot the mountain sides. The small towns of Orgiva and Lanjaron are both a 10 minute car ride away, where you can find all the shops and conveniences you will need.
