Ideally situated with fantastic views. If you are visiting Salobrena and thinking of booking a hotel, DON'T! book this gem instead. Truly amazing.

A lovely little pool to cool off in, internet/WIFI access, movies, music, books etc. About a 15 minute walk to the town of Orgiva, which has small, but good supermarkets. I would recommend this place to anyone. There is also a health center and a couple of pharmacies in town if required. Just a very enjoyable stay all around and we'd definitely stay again. Tanya's directions to find the place were great.

We walked from a different direction and the tiny streets are like a labyrinth! However this was a small price to pay for the treasure we found and we actually enjoyed the challenge.....! Being so central in the old and beautiful part of the city was just extraordinary. We were able to walk easily to the Alhambra (stopping midway for breakfast) where we had a private guided tour. This is much to be recommended, it was our third visit to the palace and we were as thrilled as we were the first time with the extraordinary beauty. The beds were comfy and the apartment so light and airy. There was no traffic noise as that area is all pedestrian only. We could see the Alhambra from two of the three bedrooms. Thank you so much Anita and Shaun, we will be back!
