Property description

Sunbathe by the private pool in the peace and quiet amongst the olive groves of Tijola, near Orgiva, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Enjoy the wonderful sunsets and star gaze at night, wtih a glass of wine after enjoying a BBQ. Buy your vegetables and fresh fish from the small local market town of Orgiva. Visit the white washed Berber villages which cling to the southern slopes of Spain’s highest mountain range or visit the Alhambra Palace and go shopping or eat out in the famous city of Granada. Recently described by Chris Stewart in his best selling book 'Driving Over Lemons' this rural area offers peace and tranquillity with easy access to the bars, restaurants and supermarkets in Orgiva. Just 1 hour south of Granada and 1 hr 40 mins east of Malaga, with the coast and golf only 35 mins away and skiing in the winter, just 1 hour 15 mins, the villa has been designed with the 16th century Alhambra Palace in mind, but with all the luxuries and comforts of the 21 century. We live next door so any questions or problems please just knock on the door.

Car: Recommended

Whilst not being a large town Orgiva, capital of the Alpujarras holds a weekly market in the town. There are many tapas bars, restaurants and small supermarkets. There are also 2 health food shops and a herbalist pharmacy. Enjoying many fiestas throughout the year, this is very much a Spanish town.

Lanjaron is a spa town, where the Spanish have enjoyed spa treatments for over 100 years. The minerals found in the different waters are said to be an aid for any number of ailments. Visit the fascinating city of Granada with its spectacular Alhambra Palace, and the old Moorish quarters of the Albaicin. Shop in the town centre or just enjoy the hustle and bustle of the street restaurants and cafés in this ancient student city.

Just 35 mins away are the relaxing beaches of the Costa Tropical. The white villages built by the Moors have a charm and style unique to this area. Spend the day visiting different villages and discovering some of the local crafts, still practiced in the region.

Other Activities: Petanque/Boules, table-tennis and badminton facilities all available at the villa

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Nigel and I (Zoe) met in 1998 and realised that we both had a desire to live in the sun. We started looking for our dream place in the year 2000. The minute we discovered this beautiful area of Spain, we knew that this is where we wanted to be. We bought the property in 2003 and spent the next 3 years renovating it to bring it up to date. We wanted to make sure that it was updated to a high level of comfort. We have been pleased with the comments people have given us about how much they have enjoyed the property. As we live next door we are always on hand to fix any problems as soon as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Órgiva, Granada, Spain:
The location and views were what attracted us to the property! We knew that we would be renovating any property that we bought, so our main concern was the views and the location. Just two and a half kilometres from the market town of Origva and with spectacular views of the mountains, we find that everyone who stays here loves it. Some of the best walking areas of Europe are all around. It is so easy to access so many places from here - the beach 30 mins drive and the ski resort of the Sierra Nevada just over an hours drive away. It is so easy to access motorways to visit Granada, the coast, Cordoba and Sevilla. The mountain villages are within easy reach - the property ideally located for most things.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The house is surrounded by olive groves, orange and lemon trees, avacado and pomigranate trees. The water system that the Moors introduced still runs down from the Sierra Nevada mountains to this day, which means the area is unusually green for Spain. We had a blank canvass when we bought this house so after visiting Granada and Morocco many times, we gave it the style that is so right for this area - the last place the Moors lived before returning back to Morocco. You will see some of the features that we have put in, on the website, but you will see many more when you visit the house. We brought many pieces of furniture from Morocco including a fountain which is in the small courtyard.
