Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Órgiva - Casa de la Era

Rural 3beds/2bathrm Cottage, Panoramic Mountain Views, Orgiva, Las Alpujarras

Our 3 bed/ 2 bathroom villa offers high quality accommodation, combining traditional Alpujarran features with modern comfort & facilities & the perfect base from which to explore Costa Tropical, the Sierra Nevada Mountains & Granada's stunning Alhambra Palace. Parts of the property are more than 200 years old & have been lovingly restored and extended. The gentle incline in depth of the 9m x 4m private pool is enjoyed with confidence by swimmers & non-swimmers alike. The walled & gated pool area offers both sun & shade in which to relax, surrounded by ancient gnarled olives, a fruiting date palm, tropical planting, rustling bamboo, all adding to the poolside experience! Come and soak up the perfumed blossom from our orange & lemon trees & neighbouring groves, enjoy the beautiful landscaped gardens with panoramic mountain views, end the day on the comfortable terrace with its scented planting, in the company of cicadas and a fine Rioja. Be amazed by the crystal clear starlit skies. Unwind!

Beautiful casita in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We just spend a blissful fortnight in this beautiful casita. Janet and Katie were so friendly and helpful and the house has everything you could want for a comfortable stay. You can spend time driving up to through the mountains and have lunch in the perfect little white villages or just relax by the wonderful pool. The gardens around the casita are just beautiful. There are also lovely walks around Tijola and you can walk in to Orgiva where there are lots of cafes, restaurants and shops and a nice market on Thursdays. the coast is just about half an hour away too, so you couldn't be better placed for the perfect holiday in Spain.

Well maintained and clean house in a beautiful and quiet location. Janet is a very kind and helpful host and respects your privacy. The garden is ideal for younger children. It is very safe and the pool is gated. Highly recommended!

Excellentes vacances!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de superbes vacances à la Casa de la Era. Le jardin est magnifique, la piscine très agréable et la villa est très bien équipée. Nous n'avons manqué de rien! Les propriétaires sont accueillants et très discrets. C'est une location que nous recommandons fortement, idéale pour les familles avec enfants. C'est une adresse que nous conservons et nous reviendrons très probablement!

Peaceful environment, helpful hostess

  • 4 of 5

Lovely peaceful week at Casa de la Era, a small cottage equipped with everything you might think of - toys for children, books set in the area, picnic fare and all kitchen requirements. Beautiful lush gardens with a wonderfully kept and safe swimming pool.

Janet was welcoming and helpful from the start accommodating our schedule and ending helpful arrival information. The effort she puts into this property and the gardens is in evidence in spades. The weekly watering of the gardens was as interesting as billed. Read Driving over lemons - Chris Stewart to get an insight into the area.

Lovely setting to relax in. Rather than spend time in Orgiva we found the mountain villages more pleasant to visit and eat in. Orgiva became more of a drive through town. Salobrena on the coast was the nicest beach place we hace come across in Spain as relatively unspoilt. A lovely week.

Perfect, peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous well equipped Casa with lovely gardens, good sized pool to cool off in the afternoons and outside eating area, heavy with the scent of jasmine.

Owner next door and available if needed.

Great location for Granada, walking in the Sierra Nevada, touring or the coast.

Would recommend and book again in an instant.
