Suffice to say it was the best holiday, the cortijo was extremely comfortable, and we fell in love with Salobrena. We want to do it again next year if we can.

Peaceful private gardens with pool, yet only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Orgiva. The views from all sides of the property are wonderful - we enjoyed watching the sunset with a glass of wine from the terrace. The large private garden was very pleasant for sunbathing and swimming in the pool and was very peaceful and relaxing. It is ideally situated for all the mountain villages where most of the walking in the area starts from. We would certainly stay here again if re-visiting this area. Peter the owner was very friendly and went out of his way to make us feel very much at home and has local knowledge which can be very useful when planning trips around the area.
