Las Alegrias is an idyllic place to enjoy a superbly relaxing holiday. We have worked over the last 14 years to create somewhere you can thoroughly enjoy. We have a delightful Spanish couple looking after the house. Sergio has created a lovely garden and ensures the swimming pool is sparklingly clean. His wife Celia creates a neat, tidy and clean environment for you to feel at home in as soon as you arrive. She buys you a welcome 'pack' of eggs, bread, butter, milk, water, beer and wine so there will be one meal for you in case you arrive after shops have closed. On the wide terrace around the crystal clear, private swimming pool are comfortable loungers, a dining table and lots of chairs. The views all around you are both magnificent and delightful. You can gently swing on the hammock shaded by a cane awning whilst drifting into an after lunch doze, with the sounds of the countryside as your lullaby.
To save you having to drive, you are in walking distance (2 minutes) from two good restaurants where you can have a drink and tapas, order a take-away, or sit and relax with a delicious meal. This makes your life very easy if you don't want to bother cooking or BBQing. Alternatively, a 5 minute drive, or 15 minute stroll up to Orgiva town allows you a large choice of cafes, restaurants and tapas bars.
