Perfect winter holiday

5 of 5
We came here mid-January for 4 weeks to escape the British winter and do some walking. We had a super time - especially as it didn't rain in Orgiva at all! In fact, the weather was bright and mainly sunny. Everything exceeded our expectations, the weather, the scenery, the overall comfort of the cottage and the friendliness of the owner, Oliver, and family. We found the cortijo comfortable, we slept well and the views were amazing (every day, even after a month). The photos don't do the scenery justice. The light and airy downstairs windows make the cortijo feel spacious and there is plenty of outside space (grass area, downstairs shady patio and upstairs sunny terrace and the pool area). It was a delight to pick oranges to drink juice on the terrace looking out at the mountains. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, electric oven, gas hob and dishwasher and the lounge TV has satellite channels with sport and films. The owner's discrete yet effective support was most welcome. His speed of response was always impressive. In particular he recommended a (mid-Feb) really good drive route for the Contraviesa almond blossom (beautiful). With help from the family we joined a local walking group and were recommended several walks. Overall having the owner discreetly nearby helped to make the holiday more enjoyable. Tips: Buses are cheap - a return trip to Granada, 90 minutes each way, was only 10€ (We pre-booked the Alhambra) Meteoblue is a good place to get weather info. We found other forecasts misleadingly showing the (much colder) weather forecast for Granada when you look for Orgiva weather. Plenty of choice of restaurants in town, 3 course (incl. drink) "menu del dia" lunch varied from 10-15€ Would we go back there for another winter holiday? Yes, definitely.
