Villa Adelaida has everything you will need for a really relaxing and comfortable stay set against a stunning backdrop of mountain scenery. The property is furnished and equipped like a home rather than a holiday rental and Jose and Angelina take great pride in making sure everything is ready for you on arrival. They even provide a few essentials for that late arrival including their own organic wine, olive oil and bread. The gardens are beautiful and varied and very well tended by Jose and Angelina. The pool is very large and kept at a good temperature - just right for cooling off when we were there in August. The villa is ideally located close to Orgiva. You can easily walk to the local bakers for example where they bake organic bread. You can walk to the weekly market in about 15-20 minutes at a steady pace. Orgiva itself is an interesting town - lots of its own history merged with the more recent new age interest make for quite an eclectic mix. Check out the organic store in the market or the herbalist in the street just down from the church. The Villa is ideally located for visits to the wider Alpujarras region. You can take a day trip up to the beautiful white washed villages of Pampaneira or Bubion. If you feel like a swim in the med you can easily make it to the coast in around 45 minutes or 1 hour to places like Nerja if you like a sandy beach. If you are thinking of visiting this area then you really can't go wrong in this property - book early as it is sure to be in demand!

The locals were all friendly, helpful and appreciated my basic Spanish. Sadly though, there was not much help offered in trying to find things to do. We have two active boys who loved the pool but this was up several flights of steps and was not open during the siesta time. We spent a day looking for a river to picnic by and play in, but couldn't locate it. We drove to the ancient city of Granada but the heat there got to all of us and was too much for my ailing parents and boys. We had to ask for clean linen rather than this being done as a matter of course. There was no contact made with us by the owners to check everything was OK or to offer advice, inform of local events etc. So we missed one of the many fiestas and a fish delivery. We found, through Trip Advisor, a Tea Garden in Orgiva run by an English family which was delightful. All in all, we wanted a truly Spanish get away up in the Alpujaren mountains which is what we got. It was very good value for a well appointed apartment but feel too much time was spent sitting in it rather than enjoying the environment and culture.

A spacious house with stunning garden and pool. The girls enjoyed the pool, the parents the threes to relax in the shade as July is rather hot!. Nice surrounding mountains. For a longer hike you have to get a bit higher up, which is only 30 min. by car.
