Wonderfully quaint little hamlet, real Spain, friendly property owners, excellent property. Just what we needed to de-stress from the vigours of everyday life.

Perfect stay, lovely setting.

5 of 5
We had a very good time. The house and surroundings were perfect and very peaceful although the property is very close to town; the pool was heaven. It is a perfect place to enjoy the surrounding villages, which are all stunning.... but it is also great to stay at home, take a plunge in the lovely-big pool and enjoy a home made BBQ with local products bought in the shops in Orgiva. We wish we could have stayed longer.... a lot longer...! The property was clean and the caretaker was always available on WhatsApp. A very pleasant stay.
