"VISTA ALEGRE" Cottage with garden and privated swimming pool

Bedrooms 2
Space 914 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Located in a two acres centenary olive grove, and surrounded by a wall which makes it very private and safe for children and where adults can sunbathe without risk of outer looks.

When you reach Vista Alegre, you find a spacious and very bright home, built with an alpujarreño style (wood and stone), but with modern facilities, wooden furniture and a good equipment, which bring you a warm welcome. Totally private, the cottage has a living room with an open kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Enjoy your meals on the wide porch, with majestic views of the entire Sierra Nevada. Outside there is a big terrace, surrounded by gardens and in which we find the pool, with hammocks to relax and sunbathe and an automatic filtering system.

There are many activities to do once you get to Vista Alegre. Hiking, horseback riding, etc. In the house you'll find different flyers and books to help you move around the area.

The environment and climate are one of our most precious gifts. The pool is in use from early April to late October. You can visit the Alpujarra, with its charming white villages on the mountain. You can go down to the beach and enjoy the tropical coast just 30 km away. The Alhambra, the Albaicin and the Cathedral, all in Granada, really worth the visit. Our Mediterranean cuisine and tapas bars are excellent. If you just want to actually relax, your company will be the songs of the birds.

Wonderful cottage, beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Vista Alegra a couple of years ago and have a fantastic time. So wanting to return to Orgiva we were delighted that Jose also had his other cottage - Los Cortijuelos - available. Like Alegra, it is absolutely superb. Exceptionally clean, everything in it we could need, a beautiful garden and swimming pool. Fantastic surroundings in the orange and olive groves. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday - it was hard to get the children to leave! A huge thank you to Jose Antonio, Paqui & Jose - their hospitality is outstanding & we hope to return.

Excellent base for walking in the Alpujarras

  • 5 of 5

We loved Vista Alegre - it was the perfect base for a walking holiday in the Alpujarras. It was conveniently located for Lanjaron and Orgiva and although in a peaceful olive grove it did not feel isolated and was not difficult to find. The cottage was spacious and beautifully designed and for us in September was perfectly cool at night. Every window had bars and a fly screen so we were able to sleep with windows open quite comfortably. The cottage was very well equipped especially the kitchen and immaculately clean. The washing machine was particularly welcome. The pool was a good size and very useful to cool off after our walks.

The owner was helpful when needed, but extremely discreet so the cottage felt private which made for an excellent stay. We also loved the garden which was beautiful with cool shady areas. There is a sheltered porch to sit in overlooking the garden and although it rained just once during our stay it is still possible to sit out in the porch and remain completely dry. We would highly recommend Vista Alegre and very much hope to return.

  • 5 of 5

"Vista Alegre was the best property that we ever choose from Homelidays site. It was much more than we expected and this was a very nice feeling. The house was very good equipped, very clean and spacious. The swimming pool and the garden were also very nice. We spent hours admiring the surroundings and "hearing the silence". Of course, the owner was the best, not only because he was very friendly, but also because he managed to create such a place. Congratulation! This is the Heaven in my imagination."

  • 5 of 5

"We had a wonderful few days at Vista Alegra. The house is just as described: a lovely semi-detached cottage accessed via a small country road, surrounded by olive groves and with amazing mountain views. There is everything you could need (and more) in the cottage and it was spotelssly clean. The owner couldn't have been more helpful. Very highly recommended."

"The house was very clean, in quiet and beautiful surroundings. Amazing views from the property. Local amenities in Orgiva were beyond walking distance. The access was down a long off-road track, but was perfectly acceptable."

Je recommande vivement Vista Aligre.

La maison et son jardon sont charmants. C'est très calme et super bien situé, très central pour rayonner de Grenade jusqu'à la côte en passant par la Sierra Nevada et les Alpujarras. José Antonio et son fils José (qui parle parfaitement anglais) sont aux petits soins. Nous avons été comblés de leur charmants hospitalité!

Ma meilleure expérience en Espagne!

Approximately 2 Km before reaching Salobreña be incorporated into the exit GRANADA N-323. Continue this road north for about 13 km and then leave this road at the exit Orgiva and the Alpujarras. You are just 8 km far from Orgiva.

The owner will send you the information of how to get to the house or he can guide you from the village.

In the area there are restaurants with regional cuisine, as migas and stews, and of course grilled meats. Their tapas bars are very popular among visitors.

In the village of Orgiva there are banks, ATMs, supermarkets, hospital, police, fisheries, etc. The house is located 2.5 km from the village and due to its situation it has stunning views of all the mountains surrounding the valley Guadalfeo.
