High standard recently renovated 30 sqm Studio, High quality equipped, Air conditioning, Heating, Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, Stunning views, Calm, Organic garden, Tropical fruit trees, Child-safe shared pool, Barbecue, Sauna, Playground, 2 min driving and 10 min walking to town.
The Tropical Studio is a very cozy apartment in the lower floor of a large, Andalusian country house surrounded by 3,000 square meters of biologically certified land with many oranges, olive, and other southern fruit trees, a large garden with playground, a child-safe pool, and green lawns in the middle of nature.
The studio is recently renovated and is characterized by its refined Andalucian style, its traditional tile floor and bright spaces. There is a curtain which could separate the bedroom/desk area and the living room. The windows give great views of the garden and the private terrace. The bathroom as well as the kitchen area are totally new and fully equipped. Everything is tastefully decorated and the studio contains all you could need (sharp kitchen knives, large red wine glasses, quality mattresses, bed linens and towels) to guarantee a relaxing holiday.
The shared swimming pool (9x4m plus a shallow part) and the lawn area surrounding it are fenced, completely childproof. The lush garden is very child-friendly with a water slide, a playground, a small soccer pitch with a goal and a giant tire swing.
The property is only 1km away from town (10-15 minutes walking distance) and still provides with all the quietness and tranquillity of pure nature to make your holiday as pleasant and relaxing as possible.
The studio is part of the large main country house on the property of 3000 sqm lush garden. I live in another part of this main house and I will make sure the peace and privacy of our guests is respected. The upper part of the house, a penthouse, is also for rent. The property also houses another small holiday home, on the other end of the land, which is also for rent.
The pool area is shared by all houses within the property. All houses do have their own garden and barbecue. On request, you can also book a hot Finnish wood-fired sauna in our property.
We can provide high chairs and cots for free.
Our prices are for using the entire estate (apartment, garden, pool and parking) for up to 2 adults. Any extra bedding is charged 10€ per day. But extra bedding for children fewer than 12 is free.
The rate includes all utilities such as Wi-Fi, gas, electricity, 10% VAT and a house insurance with liability, a pantry with the essentials (spices, vinegar, oil, sugar, coffee, tea, cocoa/hot chocolate, spaghetti, canned tomato, dish soap, laundry soap, etc.) and it includes as well the final cleaning fee of 25€ for our professional cleaning staff which contains the following:
Beds made with complete clean linen set of quality bedding, bed rugs, towels (hand/facial, bathing, pool/beach), kitchen cloths, sponges, set soap and toilet paper, candles and matches and a welcome gift of a bottle of wine and a fruit bowl.
This will ensure that you will find the property in spotless condition giving your holiday the perfect start.
I will be totally available to help out with any queries, and touristic information you will need. I am happy to share my experience gathered over 20 years, providing you practical tips on activities, hikes, beaches, restaurants, cultural events, ticket reservations (Alhambra tickets), etc.
In addition, we can arrange car hire from Malaga Airport, flamenco classes, cooking courses, riding tours, alpine hiking tours and ski days.
You can pick our delicious lemons and oranges all the way from November to June and prepare your own juices.
Straight from the house, you can enjoy wonderful walks through the valley or up to the hills. By car, you can have amazing excursions to the high part of the "Alpujarras" with its white and picturesque mountain villages or to the snow-covered peaks of Sierra Nevada.
There are 3 excellent golf courses within the radius of 30km from the property.
The ski resort of Sierra Nevada is the one with the most sunny days in the whole of Europe. The altitude is between 2000m and 3400m over 110km of slopes. High snow, long and wide pistes, reasonable prices and a surprisingly comfortable atmosphere.
In a day trip you can reach beautiful destinations such as Cordoba, Ronda or Seville, or National Parks of Sierra de Grazalema, Sierra de Cazorla and Cabo de Gata.
Blessed with gorgeous weather all year round, this region will give you an endless variety of activities and events: ski from the end of November to April; olive harvest for our own biological olive oil begins in December; almond flowering starts in January; in March, Órgiva celebrates its patron saint with spectacular fireworks; during Easter time there are impressive processions; the revered orange blossom El Azahar fills the valley with its enticing scents in April; May is an excellent month to go hiking; Granada’s Féria with daily Corridas (bullfighting) happens in June; July and August vibrate with village festivals; in September you can enjoy the warm waters of Mediterranean beaches; the Féria of Órgiva (harvest festival) happens in early October; and in November the local bars start to light their open fireplaces where people enjoy roasting chestnuts.

I came across the Alpujarras by chance during my journey through Spain in the mid 80's. This was about the same time as the famous book writer Chris Stewart arrived into the area. Years later he published his bestseller ‘Driving Over Lemons: An Optimist in Andalucia (The Lemons Trilogy)’ where he tells all these funny tales and amazing experiences he had in this very region. I also discovered the same sort of authentic unspoiled paradise as he did. Back then, south of Granada was very different to what it is now. The area was impoverished, there were not many cars around but lots of donkeys instead, TV was a novelty and people actually 'lived' in the bars. There was no VAT tax yet and no motorway for hundreds of miles. Granada was a day journey away and northern Europe a different planet. I was in heaven. I’ve been living in this area for almost 30 years and my children were born and grew up here. I absolutely love this region. Since then, I´ve been exploring the many things this area has to offer: hiking, skiing, cycling, snorkeling, biking, cooking, climbing and partying, of course. It´s my home and it feels like paradise!
