Wonderful location - superb villa with pool and private gardens

5 of 5
This property is in a fantastic location. Peaceful private gardens with pool, yet only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Orgiva. The views from all sides of the property are wonderful - we enjoyed watching the sunset with a glass of wine from the terrace. The large private garden was very pleasant for sunbathing and swimming in the pool and was very peaceful and relaxing. It is ideally situated for all the mountain villages where most of the walking in the area starts from. We would certainly stay here again if re-visiting this area. Peter the owner was very friendly and went out of his way to make us feel very much at home and has local knowledge which can be very useful when planning trips around the area.

Peaceful and Relaxing

5 of 5
Lovely house with all the facility's you would need. Three lovely outside areas all with great views for sun bathing/relaxing and dining. Gualchos village is typically Spanish, unspoiled by tourism, with a couple of bars that serve food, a restaurant, and a small well stocked supermarket A perfect base to explore this area, not far to the A7 (main motorway that runs all across southern Spain) The A7 is a pleasure to drive on, quiet with great views. A drive inland around the mountain roads rewards you with stunning views and white washed villages. Take the N340 coast road towards Motril (nice town) to discover unspoiled coves, beaches, and resorts. The owner Sue is lovely and was great with communication and help, Maggie was also great on our arrival. .
