A perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle. A traditional 2 bedroom Casita hidden among olive groves within the breathtaking Alpujarras Mountains,
Entrance to the casita is from the covered porch, where a table and seating is provided for you to enjoy breakfast in the morning sunshine or lunch in the shade of the large avocado tree.
This leads into an open plan living area where there is a wood burning stove, comfortable seating for 4 and a dining table and chairs for 4, there is also a TV and DVD with satellite. The kitchen area was renovated in January 2010 and has been designed in the local country style. It contains a range style oven, fridge with small freezer, microwave, electric kettle and toaster as well as all glassware, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils you may need.
There are two spacious bedrooms one with a king sized bed and the other with twin beds, each bedroom has a fitted wardrobe, electric fan and romantic mosquito curtains and decorated with Moorish influences.
The bathroom is also spacious including full bath with shower over and is flooded with extra light from the coloured glass in the small dome in the roof .
We also ensure that on your arrival there are a few essential food and drink items for you, in case you do not have time to shop on your way. Where possible we provide home produce from our garden (including fresh eggs from our chickens).
We live in the original Cortijo some 50 metres or so away from the casita. Although close by we take every care to ensure that guests enjoy their peace and privacy.
The Casita is nestled in beautiful fragrant gardens, surrounded by olive and orange trees, with outastanding mountaion views you can see 4 different mountain ranges.

The very Spanish town of Orgiva attracts people from all over Europe, probably due to Chris Stewart and his books about the area, Driving over Lemons and Parrot in a Pepper Tree among them.
