Overview

Orgiva House Rental Photos and Description

Typical andalucian villagelife,near beaches and mountains,Jacuzzi-pool,7people

La cueva came into existence by joining a ruined house, a neglected chicken pen and a total ruin. We renovated everything with lots of care and love to the detail,trying to include mainly local materials, like wood, river cane, esparto, stone and terracotta. The result is both very rustic and cosy and at the same time elegant,mixing its own distinct character with a Moorish charm. We are situated in the biggest of the 3 Guajar villages,20 minutes inland from the coast. This is still a living white village of mainly farmers.Sit in your hammock and listen to the mules go by-or watch them from the roof. In the mornings listen out for Jacinto,the fishmonger shouting: ”Vamos al pecao”(come on lets buy fish),or the veggie seller screaming ”niña,papas”. There is an inner patio with 2 Moorish style sitting areas, a unique solarheated Jacuzzi complete with waterfall set into a cave and a nearly 100 m² roof top terrace with 2 pergolas and barbecue. Enjoy the magnificent views all over the valley.

Peace and quiet: This somehow overlooked little jewel offers something for everybody. Away from the tourist hussle-buzzle on the coast, you take a dip into rural Andalusia, here you will experience how time seems to have stood still. Swing in the hammock and soak up the village noises, the mules that go past a few times daily or Jacinto the local fishmonger as he shouts “Vamos pecao”(come and buy fish) or the veggie seller “ niña papas”. Or take a refreshing dip in the cave Jacuzzi a very original place to while a day away. In the evening take your favourite drink, sit up on the terrace and watch the moon rise or set or on moonless nights explore the milky way or count the shooting stars, always with a secret wish. Or visit us over here at La Rueda (Nº29292) for a chat and some coffee and cake. This place is an idyllic as it sounds.

Activities: Directly from the house start short and also longer walks to explore the local mountains. A bit further on you will pass through a small gorge and then come to Guajar Alto, the smallest of the 3 Guajar villages. Wander along the different mule tracks past and through Mediterrenean Olive-Orange-Avocado and Chirimoya groves. Enjoy the almond blossom that starts in February and succumb to the perfume of the orange blossom (El Azahar) in March. Watch the farmers in the planting season or at harvest time. The nearest beach is 20 minutes away and a little bit further you will find still rather untouched and romantic coves. Granada with its famous Alhambra, its charming, Moorish Albayzin and its quaint old town is only 1 hr away. The cosy and original villages of the Alpujarra with its crystal clear streams, refreshing river pools and the snow covered 3000m mountains always invite you to hike and explore and are only 45 minutes away. Come, relax and enjoy!

Local culture: The 700 year era of Moorish-Arabic culture has left its traces all over Andalusia. The mountain terraces with its mentioned acequias(water flows) surround the whole valley. Many of the cultivated produce stem back to the Moors. This influence you will also taste in the local cuisine, the nearly daily eaten migas with sardines or papas a la pobre e.g. the famous air dried ham of the Alpujarra, the different mountain cheeses or the varied fish and stew dishes. All these specialities very often you can sample as a (free) tapa that comes with your (alcoholic)drink. Start you day with a café con leche up in the bar and experience like this the local coffee culture. Ask us about the local handcraft and we will point out workshops that make pottery, wool weavings, leather weavings, leather clothing or woodcraft. Enjoy Andalusian music and experience the bubbly happiness of the locals, who cannot sit still when they hear Flamenco! Olé!

Details for El Sol 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 4, 2 Bathrooms

Approaching La Cueva you already feel the special flair. The whole property has got a flow, a well balanced colour combination, repeating decorations, cosy corners and lots of light. Entering from the alleyway you come into the patio with its 2 Moorish style sitting corners and lovely well scented plants, it is painted in a pleasant terracotta colour. The house consists of La Estrella and El Sol, from the patio some stairs lead up to the cave, into which we set a refreshing Jacuzzi with its waterfall, next to it we converted an old stable into another shower room with toilet, sink and washing machine. A spiral stair case leads up onto the roof terrace of 100m2 from where you will enjoy magnificent views over the whole village and surrounding mountains. Up here you find 2 shady pergolas with their sitting corners, deck chairs, sun umbrellas, hammocks and a barbecue.

About Stefan Told

What can we tell you about us? We, that is the boss, Stefan and his foreign wife Naomi and of course the lazy cat Blackey.(He,Austrian, she,British;cat, Spanish) We are all VERY lucky bums and enjoy every day anew living in this wonderful, wonderful part of the world! Naomi and I, we are both from the touristtrade. After some years of working abroad in big hotels ( we met in Geneva), we decided to do some travelling and started with 6 month in Asia. Then, after a bit of work in Austria/Germany we went off again for 2 more years. Returning back to Austria we were thinking of becoming normal and wanted to marry, have children and save up for a house…sounds familiar hey?! Anyway we rented a pub/restaurant in Bavaria and within the first year had a crisis meeting between the 2 of us.

We decided, that these above mentioned goals did NOT justify such hard work with so many long hours! So, instead of changing the job, we changed our goals into more travelling, that motivated us enough to keep going for 5 ½ years. So then we stored our few belongings and set off on a new trip, that was in 1992…..You want to know where we went?What we did? What we experienced? Come and spend some time with us, and we will tell you!!

Anyway, we came back to Europe in 1999 and started looking for a new home somewhere a bit warmer than in the north. We happened upon this beautiful area and immediately fell in love with it, we looked at La Rueda on a Monday and bought it by Friday, soon after Blackey moved in. After having done up the lot we thought to be able to lead a quiet life and enjoy paradise. Instead we came across this charming ruin in Guajar bought it at the spur of the moment and then saw us nearly 3 years in working clothes…Both La Rueda and La Cueva turned out unique little jewels and we´d be more than happy sharing them with you.

Stefan Told purchased this house in 2003

Why Stefan Told chose Orgiva

This place has got something magical about it, so we saw this house and bought it, without thinking very long! And we never will regret it!

We are in the country in a small village with super friendly neighbours...and still only 20mins away from the beaches of the Costa Tropical.

Here you can just laze the days away or you do some easy or even more advanced hikingtours. Granada is only 1hr away and the villages of the Alpujarra 40mins. A few guests have been here for 7 or 8 times and still always find something new to explore. Come!

Even a Spanish TV channel has been here already to film the house for one of their programs!!

What makes this house unique

La Rueda is an idyllic little oasis in the country, surrounded by flowers and bushes, with all its colours and perfumes. This place is perfect to relax and recharge the batteries! At night sit by the pool with your favorite drink and explore the starry skies or experience the rise of the moon...or...or..or just come to unwind and slow down!

einfach nur wunderschön!

  • 5 of 5

Die Bilder sind schon schön, werden jedoch von der Wirklichkeit bei weitem übertroffen. Das Haus ist nicht nur wunderschön und liebevoll eingerichtet, sondern liegt auch in einem von den Vermietern perfekt beschriebenen Bergdorf. Als Familie fängt der Urlaub an, wenn die Kinder sich wohl fühlen und das war hier ab der ersten Minute uneingeschränkt der Fall. Die Gästebücher sind voll von wirklich guten Tipps für Essen und Ausflüge. Ein besonderes Highlight ist der Markt in Orjiva jeden Donnerstag. Und auch ein Ausflug in Sierra Nevada mit den wunderschönen Dörfern ist auf jeden Fall ein oder mehrere Ausflüge wert. Für richtig schöne Strände empfehlen wir einmal in Richtung Almeria zufahren. Dort liegen die schönsten kleinen Buchten, die als Insider Tipps gelten. Man muss einfach nur die Augen bei der Fahrt an der Küstenstraße aufmachen. Der Service von Seiten der Vermieter war erstklassig. Hier noch einmal einen besonderen Dank an Stefan und Naomi für diesen wunderschönen Urlaub von Jutta, Jana Victoria, Felix und Andreas aus dem Ruhrgebiet. Wir kommen sicher wieder hier her!

Sehr sauberes , geschmackvolles Haus

  • 5 of 5

Beim Eintreten in dieser andalusischen Oase waren wir überwältigt ! Man spürt sofort mit wieviel Liebe und Wärme Naomi und Stefan dieses Feriendomizil erschaffen haben.

Das Haus ist sehr sauber und gepflegt.

Die Beschreibung und die Bilder wurden in der Realität bei weitem übertroffen.

Wer dieser schnelllebigen Zeit für eine Weile entkommen möchte ist hier genau richtig. Die Zeit scheint stehengeblieben zu sein . Man taucht ein in das original andalusische Leben.

Die Versorgung vor Ort ist gegeben. Es gibt einen Bäcker, täglich frisches Obst und Gemüse , ein Fischverkäufer der täglich frischen Fisch anbietet,ein kleines Lebensmittelgeschäft und nicht zu vergessen eine kleine Bar, wo man gemütlich sein Bierchen trinken kann und dabei den spanischen Alltag im Dorf beobachtet.

Vielen Dank Naomi und Stefan für Eure Gastfreundschaft und danke für die vielen Informationen die Ihr uns gegeben habt.

EINFACH NUR SCHÖN

  • 5 of 5

Schon bei der Ankunft fühlt man sich zu Hause in der liebevoll eingerichteten Wohnung und mit liebe zum Detail gebauten Haus. Wir haben hier mit unserer Familie einen wunderschönen und erholsamen Urlaub verbracht. Wenn man als Tourist die Ruhe vor Touristen sucht, dann wird man hier fündig - Dorfleben ohne die Hektik der Stadt. Stefan und Naomi waren sehr hilfreich und gaben viele Tipps für die nähere Umgebung. Granada, Motril, Nerja, Sierra Nevada, Berg- und Flusswanderungen, Strände, Bergdörfer, Tropfsteinhöhlen in jeder Größe und Ruinen sind in kurzer Zeit erreichbar.

Empfehlenswert? Auf jeden Fall!

The 3 Guajar-villages, of which Faragüit is the biggest, are nestled in a very fertile and green valley, surrounded by mountains. Sometimes the Olive-Orange-Avocado and Chirimoya plantations reach up to the top of these mountains. The Moors left behind the acequias(watering channels) that cross the valley and thanks to which it is so wonderfully fertile. These white Andalusian villages have actually been overlooked by tourism despite their proximity to the sea. Down to the coast, the beach and the next golf course it is 20 minutes to Granada 1hour, to the ski slopes 11/2 hrs and to the Alpujarras 45mins.Faragüit offers everything you might need, a colourful weekly market on Saturdays, a bar/restaurant with good home cooking from the area, a bank/ATM, a few bakeries, supermarket, doctor, pharmacy, besides traders that offer veggies, fruit and fresh fish from their cars. La Cueva is situated in a car free alleyway and therefore very quiet. You can park as near as 200m away.

Golf: Only 20 minutes from us, down on the coast, we have a great golf course with a magnificent setting between Motril and Salobreña. Golf with the sea in your back and the snow covered 3000m mountains of the Sierra Nevada in front of you .In Salobeña another golf course will open soon and yet another halfway to Granada.

Ski: In the winter month you really are lost for choice. Or you go down to the empty beaches and stroll along the sea or you go to Granada to soak up some culture and do some shopping or you go up to the Sierra Nevada to go skiing. Actually you might do the lot in one single day!!! The ski area of the Sierra Nevada is the most modern ski area in Spain and the one with the most sun hours in Europe. Snow is guaranteed it offers long and wide slopes (up to 86km!), very affordable prices and a very pleasant ambience a true international ski resort! Of course all equipment can be rented up in the resort.

The reed is tied with handmade esparto (a string made of local grass).All windows have mosquito nets. The kitchen is fully equipped and is blue, the cosy eating area goes over into a warming peach. A bright and big staircase leads up into a comfortable living area, where we used a lot of river stone, terracotta and wood, the colour peach adds to the rustic ambience. A sofa and another sitting corner invite you to relax, in winter you might want to cuddle up in front of the glass door wood burner. From here a door leads to the bedroom with its joining bathroom.
