Orgiva, Province of Granada, Andalucia
CASA DE ALMENDRAS is a recently restored traditional Alpujarra cortijo. Air-con, a well equipped hand-made but modern kitchen plus wireless internet/wifi provide those vital 21st century touches. THE CORTIJO is in a stunning rural and private location but is not isolated. A 10 minute stroll takes you into the bustling market town of ORGIVA where you can find a good choice of banks, supermarkets and restaurants. A bohemian, international community makes this traditional Spanish town come alive, especially on Thursday market day when everyone is trying to sell their hand-crafted wares. It's also a great location to base an exploration of this unique and unspoilt region. THE PROPERTY is south facing, with breath-taking views of the SIERRA LUJAR mountains to the front and the SIERRA NEVADA to the rear. As late as April you can sit... Read more

Beautiful garden displaying fantastic Mediterranean plants and a perfect pool to refresh after the heat in the Spanish sun. We enjoyed the sofa under the wisteria arbour and dining outside. Plenty of tables to choose from! Easy walk to the shops and restaurants. Lovely decoration....More

Well, we have stayed in many self catering rentals over the years and I can honestly say this is the best. It truly is home from home with everything thought out for your stay. Most places are usually stripped out of all things that make...More

Getting around
The optimum way of getting around is by car - so you can explore the mountain villages and have a day trip to Granada and visit the coast.

The house is walking distance to the property and we have had guests who come as part of a larger group for cycling holidays. They get around by bike!

The property is walking distance into the town of Orgiva - that has shops, bars, restaurants, banks etc. So if you want to go car free or use it very little there is the option to do so.
