We were a little frustrated by the tall trees mentioned in another review, which block the view of the valley but not of the neighbour's roof terrace, and the other slight downside for us as learners of Spanish was that, because this is a very cosmopolitan area with many English-speaking residents, we didn't hear quite as much ambient Spanish as we would have liked. But these are minor gripes and overall I think five stars are justified. This really is the perfect place to forget about the car and walk as there are many footpaths leading in different directions from the village, including to the nearest supermarket and a very good vegetarian restaurant. Driving any distance takes a while as the roads twist and turn, but we did a trip to the sea and another to Granada, with some truly spectacular views along the way. A shorter drive will take you to other good places for walks.

House was well equipped with everything you needed for a comfortable stay - even a nice choice of books and DVDs! Its in a private location but close to Orgiva town, which was convenient, although the drive from the town to the house is a little bit tricky - single lane track with some tight corners. Fine once you get used to it! The gardens and outside space are wonderful, with fruit and olive trees around you. The pool was a really enjoyable area and perfect for the hot summer days! Peter cleaned the pool weekly and its very well maintained. The views of the mountains are incredible. Waking up to those views every morning was a real treat. We were looking for somewhere private and relaxing, and this property gave us just what we were looking for. Peter was great - very friendly and helpful. The only less positive thing for us was we found the double bed uncomfortable and both woke with painful backs. Peter said this was a new mattress, and it clearly was, but we struggled with the comfort level of the bed for a few nights (probably used to a softer mattress) before deciding to use the single beds in the second room instead. They were really comfortable! Jojo the cat was a regular visitor - we're not cat people, though he was quite cute! Overall, we had a really enjoyable stay and would definitely return.
