About the holiday Villa rental Holiday rentals in Sierra Nevada / Orgiva, Costa Tropical Andalucia

Welcome to an unforgettable holiday, in the heart of the amazing Alpujarras, on the fertile southern slopes of the snow capped Sierra Nevada, a remote, rural area with stunning views of the mountains and a mild Mediterranean climate from the nearby coast. This villa has been built in traditional andalucian-arabic style and children are warmly welcomed. The holiday home and the location have a lot to offer to families and those with a spirit for adventure as well as to those seeking rest and relaxation. The peace of the countryside can be enjoyed in the large garden, while reading under the shade of an olive tree beside the child-safe pool, playing football with the kits or spending a summer evening at the barbecue. You can go on short walks directly from the land, take day trips to the nearby coast or up to the whitewashed, winding mountain villages. It takes 40 minutes (34 miles) by car to get to Granada, one of the most beautiful and lively historic cultural cities in the world. Contact the Owner

Local Information

Orgiva is a lively Andalusian village, picturesque situated in a large valley in the south of Granada, right under the clearest nifgt sky of Europe, between the rugged and snow covert mountains and the Costa Tropical, surrounded by wild, green and well-balanced countryside, rivers and thousands of years old olive and productive orange groves. Our property is an organic farm producing its own olive oil and almost all over the year our guests can find rip fruits ready to be taken right from the trees. Alongside its numerous street cafes, bars, small shops, the weekly market and the indoor market, Orgiva also offers supermarkets, banks, a post office, and a cinema. It takes 10 min. to walk over a country lane from the property to ├?rgiva. It is only 25 km to the Costa Tropical, where you still can find a few beautiful and peaceful bays with only a fish restaurant right on the beach. In the mountains are many hiking trails passing by rivers and lagoons to enjoy a refreshing bath.

Attractive specific features of the property

Due to their location in the unparalleled, evergreen even in the heat of summer, Alpujarras, between the sunny coast and the high mountains of Granada, our holiday cottage is the ideal place to get to know Andalucia intimately, away from the tourist hustle and bustle. It is an ideal starting point to do any kind of walks and excursions. Straight from the house, you can enjoy wonderful walks through the valley or up to the hills. By car, you can take trips to the high part of the 'Las Alpujarras' with its white and picturesque mountain villages or to the peaks of Sierra Nevada, up to 3484m high and full of rare animals, wild rivers and untouched lagoons, resting in peace. In 25 minutes you get to the coast and in 40 minutes to Granada. Day trips can be taken to cities like Cordoba, Ronda or Seville, or National Parks like Sierra de Grazalema, Sierra de Cazorla, Cabo de Gato etc. In addition to this, the holiday home is only 80km away from the Sierra Nevada ski resurts.(see ski info)

Culture and Cuisine

Interesting specific features of culture : The time of the Moors and Arab rule lasted almost 900 years and left more of an impression on The Alpujarras than on any other region of Spain. The legacy of Arabic art and culture can still be seen in the style of buildings, the intricate irrigation system, and the local crafts, music and art. From the Arabs came recipes, which creatively combine meat or fish with fruit and herbs. They brought figs, pomegranates, citrus fruit, olives and melons with them and these sun-loving fruits are still flourishing in The Alpujarras today, alongside strawberries, prickly pears, peaches, cherries, apples, pears, quince, walnuts, chestnuts and almonds. On the property, there are about 30 different fruit trees, and the whole year one can pick fresh fruits right from the tree, ripe oranges even from October to June. The flowering time starts in February with the almond flower, the famous and historically significant and revered orange tree blossom (El Azahar) smells during the whole month of April.

Specific features of local cuisine : The Alpujarran cuisine doesn't boast any refinements, it's more about the earthy real tastes of the ingredients - and thanks to the variety of altitudes and climate zones here there's an abundance of foods on offer: air dried mountain ham, all types of sausages and cheese, meat, fish and vegetables, potatoes and eggs prepared in various ways, fruit, as well as every possible variation on olives. Many of these fine ingredients lend their charm to all sorts of Tapas, delicious nibbles whose home is Andalucia; accompanied by a glass of Fino, sherry, the world famous wine from the sunshine land of the Spanish south.

Other Activities

Flamenco courses, mountain climbing, snowboarding, wind-surfing, dog-sledding, white-water rafting, canoeing

Es war wieder einmal richtig klasse! Wir kommen seit vielen Jahren fast jedes Jahr und haben uns in diesen Garten Eden verliebt. Obwohl seit menschengedenken der feuchteste Winter in Andalusien haben wir uns wieder so richtig erhohlt. Dank des gem├╝tlichen und gut gebauten Hauses. Nach zwanzigj├Ąhrigen Erfahrungen in Ferienh├Ąusern haben wir hier unser Paradies gefunden. Es sind oft die kleinen details - gute Betten und Decken, eine gute Heizung, immer ausreichend trockenes Feuerholz im Winter, der gr├╝ne Garten und die vielen Schatten spendenden B├Ąume im Sommer, eine sehr gut ausgestattete K├╝che (mit scharfen Messer - f├╝r uns als Hobbyk├Âche von unsch├Ątzbarem Wert), die uns den Urlaub hier so entspannt und erholsam machen. Und deine Tipps und Vorschl├Ąge zu allem was man hier unternehmen, sehen, geniessen und erleben kann. Andalusien ist ein landschaftlicher und kultureler Schatz, so vielseitig!
Es gibt noch so viel zu entdecken, wir kommen wieder.
Alles gute und bis September!

Eine wundersch├Âne Zeit in Orgiva

Lieber Oliver, jeden Tag denken wir zur├╝ck an den sch├Ânen Urlaub, den wir bei euch verbracht haben. Wir haben uns in dem liebevoll eingerichteten und gut ausgestatteten Haus sehr wohl gef├╝hlt und den pardiesischen Garten genossen. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder! Auch deine Gastfreundschaft und die guten Tipps zur Erkundung der Umgebung haben den Urlaub unvergesslich gemacht. Liebe Gr├╝├če, Susanne und Dirk aus Trier

Es war unser erster Urlaub in Spanien ├╝berhaupt und wird sicher nicht der letzte gewesen sein.
Das Ferienhaus war sch├Âner als in der Anzeige bei der Buchung beschrieben: v├Âllig ruhig in einem kleinen Talausschnitt gelegen mit einer wunderbaren Aussicht auf ein grandioses Bergpanorama und wirklich in einem interessant, terrassenf├Ârmig angelegten Garten Eden mit einer Menge lokalem "wildlife". Das Haus war sauber und gepflegt, bei der Ausstattung fehlte es an nichts. Der Vermieter war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und seine Tipps zu Gegend und Ausfl├╝gen etc waren wirklich gut, wie auch sein selbst erzeugtes Oliven├Âl zum v├Âllig akzeptablen Preis.
Wir w├╝rden das Ferienhaus unseren Freunden und unserer Familie uneingeschr├Ąnkt weiterempfehlen!
Ein "must see" in der Gegend von Granada ist sicher die Alhambra, aber auch ruhige Buchten an der nicht weitentfernten Costa Tropical oder Besuche der hochgelegenen wei├čen Bergd├Ârfchen sind empfehlenswert, ebenso wie der lokale Schinken und die traditionellen Ceramica.Weiter entfernte Ziele sind Cordoba, Ronda, die Sierra Nevada und Gibraltar. Wanderfreunde (nicht gerade in den hei├česten Monaten) kommen genauso auf ihre Kosten wie Ruhesucher und Teilzeit-Zivilisationsfl├╝chtlinge ;-) .. wir w├╝rden gerne wiederkommen!
Leider sp├Ąt entdeckt, aber umso erfreuter waren wir ├╝ber den Besuch im "El Limoniero", einem Restaurant mit guter, traditionell beeinflusster aber doch innovativer Speisekarte mit ├╝beraus nettem kanadischem K├╝chenchef.
