About Clare Sasada
Ainsley and I have lived around the Orgiva area for the last 20 plus years and have had various businesses including our 2 holiday cottages. We live next door to the cottage and are on hand in case of need along with our dog cat and 1 chicken. We look after the cottage ourselves.
Clare Sasada purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Clare Sasada chose Órgiva
The area is very unspoilt as there is no industry here and we have the cleanest air in Europe. We have spanish neighbours and live in the countryside but within easy access to the local town of Orgiva and we can walk within a few minutes into town so we do not have to drive all the time. We are 454 metres above sea level and are a short drive away from the white washed villages on the southern slopes of the sierra nevada mountain range. The coast and beaches are a 30 minute drive and have larger shops and clean beaches too so we have the best of both worlds. Airports are easy to drive to as the motorway is 15 minutes away.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is very well equipped and as we are living here we can be of assistance to aid your holiday experience in case of any questions or give you help if you may need. We are to be found next door but we keep ourselves to ourselves so not to interrupt your holidays and we make sure the pool and garden are kept clean before you awake! We make bread if you want and the chicken can provide fresh eggs and we usually have fresh veg. from the gardens around us if you want to sample some of the local produce. The town of Orgiva has everything you need so you do not need to bring "the kitchen sink" and we have really good internet access with wifi in the cottage.

Fantastic, Quirky House Very Close To Town
We recently had the great pleasure of staying at Clare and Ainsley's lovely house known as 'El Nido' (The Nest) recently and I have to say how much we loved the place! When you first arrive you're taken in by the lovely garden and pool space with a good mixture of seating in sun and shade to cater for everyone. When you get inside El Nido you can't help but smile, it's such a lovely place. Set on different levels the house is very colourful, full of charm and plenty of character! Simply ideal for a holiday in such a lovely part of the world. Highly recommended!!
Thank you so much for taking time to write the review. Much appreciated and so please you liked el nido and the dogs liked it too.
A perfect piece of heaven
We have been spending a fabulously relaxing week here at El Nido, this is our 4th visit and we'll be back next year. Claire and Ainsley are always very helpful from suggesting places to eat to experiences to enjoy. We couldn't, think of better place to experience real Spain in such a lovely cottage with smashing private pool and wonderful views of the mountains .
Two wonderful weeks at El Nido with our eight and nine year old boys. The perfect place to unwind, read by the pool and enjoy the sunshine. Loads of good restaurants in walking distance and plenty of day trips when you want to go further afield (the white villages, the coast, Granada were the three we managed). Perfect hosts and their perfect pets looked after us beautifully - there when we needed them but nowhere to be seen when we didn't.
Beaches at Salobreña/Motril on the Costa Tropical 30 minutes.
It is possible to fly to Granada from the UK. Malaga airport is an hour and a half away mostly easy motorway driving. Non car users will find its location very amenable and Clare and Ainsley are available for airport pickup and day trips. However, car hire can be booked via the internet for pickup at Malaga airport. Almeria airport is also within 2 hours.
Orgiva short walk/drive away - 5 minutes. Granada 50 minutes. Nerja 50 minutes. Trip into the higher mountains approximately 20 minutes.
Orgiva is at the heart of Las Alpujarras, the beautiful valleys and foothills between the Sierra Nevada and the coastal range. Of great interest to walkers, birdwatchers, botanists, writers and painters or just for a great holiday away from it all. Many activities including pony trekking, hang-gliding, golf and skiing. The last outposts of the Moors after the fall of Granada in the 16th Century, their Berber villages dot the mountainsides. Ski slopes 95 minutes. Meal on arrival and shopping service and airport pickup are also available. For further details please see the 'Extras Index' on our website link below.
