Orgiva offers excellent bus connections, easy access to hiking trails, a colorful weekly market, several small supermarkets, and plenty of eating out options. Peter's house is convenient to all of that. Three floors, three balconies, and even a separate laundry room. Besides its airy spaciousness, several small touches made this the best of three places we stayed: sufficient kitchen utensils so that we actually could self-cater (not always the case in rentals), a laundry basket, clothes pegs, and a refreshing lack of printed rules, so we felt trusted. Peter met us at the bus stop and helped carry bags. He also came immediately when we had a minor problem with a chirping smoke detector. We love Orgiva, and this house definitely made our return trip there especially enjoyable.

House equipped with everything one could possibly need - a considerable amount of thought and care has been taken by the owner and family. Spotlessly clean. Armchairs on patio an extra delight.
