About the property

Rural Vila with 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to thank you all so much for letting us stay in your beautiful casita. We came here to relax and re-charge our batteries and that is exactly what we did. We didn't go very far as the amazing scenery, beautiful gardens, star studded skies made us more than happy to stay in. The Alpujarras have a magical quality that draws us back and we feel sure that we will be here again next year!

Two fantastic weeks

  • 5 of 5

We spent two fantastic weeks at Casa de la Era in August 2017. We are a family with a boy and a girl and all of us absolutely loved it.

The house is very clean ,had everything a family needs and was very cosy, peaceful with a lot of charm and a lovely terrace.

The pool area is just amazing & safe. The gardens were stunning, enchanting, with beautiful trees and plants. The irrigation system was spectacular as well as the mountains view. The location is perfect for exploring the region & Las Alpujarras. About 35 mins drive to the beach and slightly longer to Granada. In addition, Janet is a great host and has been very welcoming.

We would certainly recommend it to anybody.

Relaxing week at this casita with gorgeous garden

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay at this characterful casita with beautiful garden and pool; ideal for relaxing, reading and as a base for exploring the region. The property and facilities were very clean, well maintained and with plenty of information regarding the area and what was of interest.

Janet, the owner, is a lovely host and made us feel welcome with helpful advice on travelling into Granada and villages to visit in the area. Our favourite trip was to Trevelez, a village high in the mountains set in a lush valley with stop offs en route to take in the stunning views.

After our week here we had 2 nights in Granada with an easy drive to this memorable city, must not be missed.

Just fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing week here. The house and garden are both beautiful and immaculate and we were able to totally relax. A lot of care and attention goes into the beautiful paradise gardens and accommodation, we really couldn't fault a single thing. Janet and her lovely family are welcoming, friendly and extremely accommodating to guests but not intrusive in the least, they are there if you need them but you have complete privacy and the free run of the fantastic gardens.

This has to be one of the loveliest places we've ever stayed. Wonderful house, full of character with all you need and more, gardens and grounds - out of this World, secluded tropical haven, fantastic pool and pool terrace and a stunning location in the Alpujarras - the watering ritual was fun to observe too! We would highly recommend! We plan on going back most definitely!

Tranquillity, a haven of rustic paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed many times at this property with my daughter who is now 10 and was only 2 when we first visited. Well kept, clean and everything you need is found in the villa. Janet, Katie and Oscar are so lovely and helpful! The gardens and pool are so peaceful, tranquil and absolutely beautiful and also BIG! Plenty of room to run around and it feels completely private too. I would recommend to everyone I know but also want to keep it a secret :) The local town is very small rustic and sleepy but has great restaurants and supermarkets. Not too far from Granada itself and only a 40min drive away to the coast. We love it

Perfect villa stay

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better small villa. Very well equipped and lovely attention to detail. The gardens are stunning and the pool is lovely. Good location for trips up to the alpuharras and day trip to Granada. Hosts are great too and on hand if needed.

Would recommend wholeheartedly!
