Holiday Rental House
This is a truly lovely house, very Spanish and full of charm and character. We have refurbished it with style and filled it with lovely furniture, some modern and some antique, with Moroccan and Spanish influences. The house sits in half an acre of cyprus, olive and almond trees stretching across three terraces. On the lower terrace, partly secluded by trees and shrubs, is the 9m (30ft) swimming pool with spacious stone terrace, perfect for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade. There are sun loungers and umbrellas but for most of the day there is shade in one perfect spot, under the old olive tree.

We have refurbished it with style and filled it with lovely furniture, some modern and some antique, with Moroccan and Spanish influences. The house sits in half an acre of cyprus, olive and almond trees stretching across three terraces. On the lower terrace, partly secluded by trees and shrubs, is the 9m (30ft) swimming pool with spacious stone terrace, perfect for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade. There are sun loungers and umbrellas but for most of the day there is shade in one perfect spot, under the old olive tree. We have created beautiful gardens which lead to the house and down to the pool, from the formal entrance garden to the stone path with pretty fountain, you will be surrounded by flowers and shrubs. The trees are mature and give much needed shade, but the oleanders, lilies and lantana lift everything with brilliant colours. The large, bright living room leads straight onto the pool terrace through the french windows. There's a comfortable sofa and chairs so you can relax and watch the kiddies playing by the pool. At the other end, by the kitchen, there's a dining table (seats 8) from here into the family kitchen, well equipped for a large group with plenty of room to cook in comfort. POOL: the 9m (30 ft) pool is very private and surrounded by large terrace with green shrubs and trees. The whole pool area is south facing and gets loads of sun, it's always a big hit with guests who often hurry back from trips to relax here until dusk. There are sun loungers, plus table and umbrella, with a shady area under the generous olive tree. THREE BEDROOMS: There are two large L-shaped bedroom suites, both with a curtained area for privacy, both with ensuite bathrooms. Bedroom Suite 1 leads off the living room and also into the sun lounge, it's bright and airy. Bedroom Suite 2 features french windows leading into the private back garden, this is at the back of the house and has two patios for relaxing in the sun or shade. Both bedroom suites have room for a couple and two children, there's also a cot for baby (optional). Bedroom 3 is a double, it's next to the house bathroom, and there's a sofa bed in the large sun lounge also overlooking the pool (with large windows and blinds for privacy). The house sleeps 7 or 8 adults with some sharing but can also accommodate 3 or 4 young children sharing with Mum and Dad or grandparents. GARDENS: There are several garden areas starting with the entrance gravel garden with paths and fountain, the pool is surrounded by gardens and finally there's a large very private back garden accessed from the pool and also via french windows in bedroom suite 2.

There are many bars and restaurants and the town's central Plaza really buzzes at night, so there's plenty to do until the early hours, including two discos. The Alpujarra Valley is famous for its mountain walks and the three highest villages in Spain are half an hours drive from Orgiva, Capilliera is one of Spain's prettiest villages. There is horse r...
