We had everything we needed during our week there - a comfortable bed, good shower, kitchen, lovely gardens with bbq area overlooking the olive groves and mountains, swimming pool perfect for cooling off after a busy day out. We went on some amazing walks, a village musical evening, a visit to Granada, Orgiva's Thursday market, (all recommended by Naomi and Stefan). I can highly recommend Naomi and Stefan's place to anyone looking for a peaceful, comfortable base to stay while exploring Andalusia. We will be back.

Very well equipped with comfy beds and everything you could hope for in a very well equipped kitchen, and was absolutely spotlessly clean when we arrived. We were made very welcome by the owners Jose and Angelina, who are utterly charming, very kind and very helpful they made our stay something special with the attention to detail and their generosity. Its a very short walk to the town of Orgiva with many very good places to eat (in particular we liked the Moroccan restaurant, just off the main square in the town) if you don't want to self cater, but the town has several small but well stocked supermarkets too. A beautiful region of Spain, Villa Adelaida is a perfect base from which to explore, would love to return sometime in the future! Special thanks also to Antonio, who dealt with our booking and was also very helpful, always responding to any questions we had very quickly.

As the crow flies it is near several villages, however these involve steep rough walks which are enjoyable, but you will probably drive if you want to go for a coffee/meal. I would highly recommend casa Julio in pampeiera for food. food great and very reasonable. Inside, the cottage is as described, spacious comfortable and clean. I was disappointed however to find that the since the photos were posted, a great deal of shrubbery has grown up which really obscures the potentially fabulous views. From reading other reviews I guessed there wasn't a welcome package, and for us this wasn't a problem as we were familiar with the area and had popped into a supermarket on the way from the airport. i do agree though that it's very daunting to arrive in an unfamiliar area and have to try and find a shop (particularly on a Sunday). Unfortunately In my experience, welcome packages tend to be the exception rather than the rule which is a pity. Overall I would recommend this property if you want a very, very quiet, peaceful holiday with plenty of energetic walking.
