About Sheila & Jack Horner
We lived in the Bristol area of the UK, where we worked together before deciding to leave the 'rat race' and invest in a house in this beautiful part of Spain
Sheila & Jack Horner purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Sheila & Jack Horner chose Órgiva
We first came here because family were already living in Orgiva, and gradually fell in love with the area and decided to follow in their footsteps.

Sheila and Jack are so nice and open people.Tkank you Jack for coming to the center to show us the way home:)Hope we back there...
Stunning location, lovely hosts
We have just returned from a fantastic week at Casa Pepe Rosa. Having arrived in the dark it was lovely to wake to the beautiful mountain views and the lovely spacious gardens and pool. The house was just right for the two of us, clean and homely and it provided for all our needs. We loved spending our evenings on the covered porch, with a glass of wine, watching the lightening and listening to the thunder rumbling around the mountains (there were several storms during our stay). Sheila and Jack were very friendly and welcoming, and were there if we needed anything, even providing us with fresh produce from their garden. We spent a very pleasant evening having drinks and tapas round at their house...Jack’s ‘Berenjenas con Miel’ are to die for! Missy and Holly were lovely too, providing lots of welcoming licks.
Órgiva is a lovely town with a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars and is close enough to walk to if you prefer not to drive (approx 25 mins). We love the Moroccan restaurant Tetería Baraka as this caters for vegetarians and has a great ambience. There are a couple of reasonable sized supermarkets where you can get most things.
We spent our days walking in the Sierra Nevada mountains, never tiring of the magnificent scenery and tranquility. We had intended to climb Mulhacén but unfortunately the weather wasn’t good enough. It can’t be helped...we’ll just have to return next year, haha. If you prefer the beach, there are some lovely beaches only a 30-40 minute drive away.
Overall we had a great holiday and would definitely recommend Casa Pepe Rosa. Thanks Sheila and Jack (but next time can you arrange some better weather 😁)
We had a wonderful 2 weeks in this villa. The villa itself is lovely with everything you need included, the pool is fantastic and ours kids (and us) loved being able to go into this whenever we wanted. Jack & Sheila were on hand for any questions that we had and made us feel so welcome. The added bonus of their dogs Missy and Holly was great! The dogs are so friendly and we all loved having them around. The location of the villa is stunning, surrounded by the Sierra Nevada mountains and very relaxing to be able to sit out in the garden. In terms of location, it is around 40 mins drive to the coastal towns of Costa Tropical and around 50 mins drive to Granada city. The mountain villages such as Bubion, Pampaniera etc are definitely worth visiting as well as Granada (Alhambra Palace etc). There is a good water park in Almunecar on the coast. Orgiva the main town is 5 mins away in the car and has nice restaurants, ice cream and supermarket.
Overall, I would highly recommend this Villa. Thanks Jack & Shiela for making us feel so welcome.
Visiting our daughter.
This is our third year staying in the Orgiva area. The accommodation was great and we were very comfortable and the hosts were very helpful. We were very lucky with the weather and this meant we were able to go up to the Sierra Nevada where the scenery is amazing. Had lovely food and found people very friendly. Would go back there again. Thank you Sheila and Jack 😊😊
Loved the property and it’s location.
We found the property spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We have been coming to this area for 25 years and this is probably the nicest place that we have stayed. The peace and quiet made this a very relaxing stay with the pool and garden an added bonus. Sheila and Jack were ideal hosts; nothing was too much trouble. We are already making plans for a further visit! Sheila and Jack even arranged for the sun to shine for 14 days!

Orgiva is the capital of the western Alpujarras, just 3/4 hour from the city of Granada. The beaches of Motril, Salobrena etc are approx. 35 minutes drive. The area is one of the last remaining regions where they serve free tapas with a drink!
