Spend your holiday in a romantic and idyllic retreat on the southern foothills of the Sierra Nevada, surrounded by a sea of colours and perfumes, moun

Overview

Our cortijo and the cottage we rent, is situated 5km outside Orgiva in a hamlet called Los Agustines, at the southern foothills of the Sierra Nevada. This is still a 'living' community of mainly vegetable farmers who till their land below us mostly by hand. Sit in your hammock and watch them. Often one of our lovely neighbours knocks on the door to share his produce with us. Every afternoon some goats with bells around their necks make their way down to the fields, or Paco or Jose go by with their mule. This place really is as idyllic as it sounds!

Activities
You want to be active? Then join us for coffee and cake in the afternoon! Maybe you'd like to be included in the daily activities? Then help us or our neighbours to pick olives or harvest vegetables or just watch us doing it. You can go for short walks or longer hikes - down into the country past all kinds of exotic trees and/or up into the hills and mountains of the Sierra Nevada. A short stroll into the country is highly recommended during the full moon! Sit by the pool at night with your favorite drink, switch off all the lights and enjoy the moonrise or set, awesome! On moonfree nights you can stargaze and explore the whole milkyway and don´t forget to make a wish with one of the many shooting stars. Go sightseeing in Granada with its famous Alhambra (50 minutes away) or visit the white washed villages of the Alpujarras (20 minutes away). Ask us about local handicrafts (pottery, weaving, leather weaving) and woodworks etc. Orgiva (5km away) offers everything you might need - there is a colourful weekly market (Thursdays), daily market, shops, cafes, bars, banks and ATMs, dentist, doctor, internet cafe etc. If you are looking for more activity then ask us about horse-riding, guided hiking trips as well as reiki, reflexology and different types of massages - all of these can be arranged. Maybe you are looking for Spanish lessons? This is your home from home, just lean back and unwind! We speak English, German and of course Spanish.
