Welcome to this beautiful organic mountain eco-farm cottage .
We offer a beautifully restored cottage typical of this region, which is hidden away in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is peaceful and secluded, with lovely views and is a great base to explore this stunning corner of Spain known as La Alpujarra.
The facilities are simple but charming. There are 3 bedrooms available off a small courtyard: A double bedroom with a wash basin, a single room and a bunk bed room. The bathroom consists of a bath with a shower and wash basin and the eco-friendly compost loo is situated down a short path. There is a large kitchen-dining room and adjoining cosy sitting room area with a wood burning stove. There is also a dining patio which is shaded by an olive tree.
The land is terraced and wooded with many fruit trees. There is fruit in season most of the year including oranges, figs, grapes and pomegranates. Guests are welcome to help themselves! We grow lots of organic vegetables which we will be happy to sell to our guests along with fresh eggs from our free range chickens and our own virgin cold pressed organic olive oil.
There is a chlorine-free swimming pool filled weekly with fresh mountain water and garden easy chairs and a hammock near by to relax in.
The local market town of Orgiva is just a 20 minute stroll, with a variety of bars and restaurants to enjoy. This is where to catch the buses to get around the region for those without a car.
This area is noted for its wild beauty and is ideal for those people who love mountain walking, bird watching, horse riding and love being in the heart of nature.
There are stunning views from the white villages of Capileira, Pampaneira and Trevelez,, and on a clear day, it is possible to see as far as Morocco!
If you want to go further afield; it is 1 hours drive to the fabled city of Granada famous for the Alhambra Palace,( tickets are best booked on line to avoid disappointment) and 40 minutes by car to the beaches of the Costa Tropical.
