Charming Eco, off grid Cortijo set in the mountains at the foothills of sierra Nevada. Wonderful location, stunning views,peace and tranquility in abundance. There are many wonderful walks in this area and orgiva is 45 mins walk to shops, cafes.
The Cortijo is in traditional alpujarras style with wonderful old olive beams. There are wood burning stoves in 2 of the 3 bedrooms and in the kitchen. The land is terraced and has many olive and almond trees. There is a large terrace around the natural pool and a hammock for relaxing. The house is off grid so electricity is solar and there is a composting toilet. A large organic garden which provides seasonal vegetables
Guests have access to the gardens and use of pool. Kitchen is available for use at set times in the evenings.
This is my home and I live here so you cannot avoid me but luckily, I'm friendly
I am planning to run art retreats throughout the year so watch this space.
Please bring your own towels and a torch. The solar system is not suitable for hair dryers or straighteners, etc. you can charge a laptop and mobile.
Please respect my home and the environment. Water is scarce and there is no rubbish collection here so minimise plastics.
Arrived in wonderful andalucia 2 years ago. I spent 2 years walking in northern Spain but the climate of the south and the majestic mountains drew me here.
I'm an artist and see my lovely little Cortijo as my potential work of art.
Originally I'm from Scotland, also a very beautiful country. I'm passionate about walking and the alpujarras offer great treks. Although I haven't had much time to do any yet! One day I'd love to take the gr7 route( which runs just above my Cortijo) to Greece.
