Overview

Come and explore the dramatic landscape of the snow capped Sierra Nevada Mountains visit the scenic whitewashed villages and sample their locally cured hams, pottery and handwoven rugs. Admire the Moorish architecture in Granada, including the stunning Alhambra Palace, Cordoba and Jaen. Ski in the morning, discover sunsoaked Mediterranean beaches in the afternoon and sample tapas bars and restaurants in the evenings. Fiestas abound!
Alternatively, chill! Lounge by the private walled and gated pool, take in the panoramic views and the perfumed blossom from our orange and lemon trees and neighbouring groves. End the day with a fine Rioja, the company of cicadas and marvel at the crystal clear starlit sky. There is always manana...

Where Are We?
The Villa is situated in Tijola, in the campo (countryside), about 3 kms from Orgiva, the market centre of the Western Alpujarras. The local town has an impressive Baroque church and a selection of banks, internet cafes, interesting shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. There is very much an alternative feel here, with many health treatments such as massage, aromatherapy, reiki, iridology etc available. A colourful market draws many to the town every Thursday. The Alpujarras are renowned for their oustanding natural beauty, their flora and fauna. The ski resort of Sierra Nevada is about a 90 min drive away while golf and the Mediterranean coast are about a 40min drive. For the more tranquil moments visit the Buddhist monastery of Osel Ling or try the spa waters and assortment of treatments at nearby Lanjaron. A car is essential if you wish to maximise the diversity of your Alpujarran holiday.

Accommodation
The double fronted villa offers high quality 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom accommodation, combining tradional Alpujarran features with modern comfort and facilities including WiFi.
Accommodation: open/plan fully equipped traditional Alpujarran kitchen (fridge, full size cooker, washing machine, microwave etc.) living/dining area with woodburner for those cooler nights, CD/MP3 iPod player, TV and DVD player with selection of books, games and DVDs and double bedsettee. Double doors lead onto a large outdoor terrace, where there is a gas barbeque and dining area, surrounded by perfumed planting and beautiful vistas that all add to the joy of Spanish style alfresco living. The family bathroom is off the living area and includes a shower. The bedrooms are located together at the other end of the property. The double bedroom has access to its own intimate private patio area, a peaceful hideaway from others! There are a further two single bedrooms, one with stained glass window.

Thank you Janet for a great stay and a friendly welcome. The grounds are the highlight of the holiday -it was so restful and an oasis of beauty. Using the lemons from the trees to make lemonade,ice-cream and sorbet was also fun!

Wow. We had a fantastic time here, the house was lovely and the pool was STUNNING!! There are lovely gardens too, and the pool was a perfect size for our 3 children 10,8 and 4. The owners are on hand if you need them but it was a lovely private place to relax. Orgiva was a nice small town with some good places to eat, but there were also some good day trips an hour or so away to be had-(kids loved the waterpark). We had a great holiday here.....
