Tropical Studio is a very cozy apartment on the ground floor of an Andalusian country house, surrounded by 3.000 sqm of biologically certified land and a lush tropical garden with many orange, ancient olive, avocado and other southern fruit trees, a playground and a large child proof pool with wide green lawns, all this settled in the middle of pure and calm nature. The shared saline-swimming pool produces a natural alternative to chlorine; it is 9 x 4m and incorporates a shallow toddler section. The Studio is recently renovated and is characterized by its refined Andalusian style, its traditional tile floor and bright spaces. The property is only 1km away from Orgiva (2 min driving and 10 min walking to town), providing high standard within the quietness and tranquility of pure nature. It is a privileged spot to experience holidays as pleasant and relaxing as possible and explore the heart of the genius Andalucía.
There is a curtain which could separate the bedroom/desk area and the living room. The windows give great views of the garden and the private terrace. The bathroom as well as the kitchen area is totally new and fully equipped. Everything is tastefully decorated and the studio contains all you could need in details as, for example: sharp kitchen knives, large red wine glasses, quality mattresses and bed linens, north European standard duvets, all types of towels, French relax-loungers, good outdoor furniture, etc.
We live in the other part of the main house and I will make sure that peace and privacy of our guests is fully respected. The upper part of the house, a penthouse, is also for rent from May to September. The property also houses another holiday villa on the other end of the land, which is also for rent.
The pool area is shared by all houses within the property. All houses do have their own garden, terraces and barbecue area. On request, you can also book a hot Finnish wood-fired sauna in our property.
