Orgiva House Rental Photos and Description

Spectacular Views, Peace, Gated Pool, Fire Place, 500 Years Old Olive Trees

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 gated 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

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)

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.

I dropped into the Alpujarras by accident being on a journey all over Spain. This was happening in the mid 80's and it was at the same time as the famous book writer Chris Stewart arrived into the area. Years later he published his bestseller 'Driving over lemons' where he tells all these funny stories and amazing experiences he had to go across and in fact, I discovered the same kind of an authentic unspoiled paradise as he did. Obviously the south of Granada was in these days a bit different to what it is now. The area was very poor, not many cars but lots of donkeys, TV was just coming in and people actually 'lived' in the bars. There was no VAT tax yet and no highway hundreds of miles around. Granada was a day journey away and northern Europe a different planet. I was in heaven. Now I'm living this area for over 25 yaers, my children where born and grown up here and I love it every day even more. It's the Garden Eden, it's paradise!

Oliver Baun purchased this house in 1995

As you will see, the house is very well prepared and comes with all inclusive. Once you are here everything will suit your requirements and you will be enjoying a relaxing holiday right from the first moment on.

As well it will be a pleasure to us to offer all our experience we could gather in the 20 years we are living in the area to give you any kind of practical tips and advises about what-when-where-how to do, like it could be walks, hikes, nice car spins, beaches, restaurants, culture events, tickets booking, etc.

We really want to give you the chance to dive in to the authentic Andalusia.

BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL, STUNNING VIEWS, CHARMING.

  • 5 of 5
Cortijo el Cura is a lovely rustic but beautfully appointed cottage. Sitting out on the terrace enjoying the stunning views with a bottle of the owner's homemade wine, some local cheese, ham and bread - simply heaven! The secluded pool surrounded by lush vegetation is a delight. It feels like a remote hideaway but only a short drive and 1/2 hour walk into town. The area is simply stunning!

A SLICE OF TRANQUILLITY!

  • 5 of 5
Thoroughly recommend a stay here! Accommodation and facilities are excellent.

Such an idyllic place. Waking up in the cool, yet cosy cave was lovely. Picking oranges from the plentiful trees in the garden and enjoying freshly squeezed orange juice was such a pleasure! Days were spent lazing on the balcony and going for dips in the lovely refreshing pool or venturing out in the car for day trips to the beach, into the mountains and to the gorgeous Granada. Followed by blissful evenings spent outside by the BBQ eating paprika prawns and sipping a glass of wine.

This was our first family holiday with our little girl and we went home with many wonderful memories! Hopefully we will get a chance to visit again in the future!

LOVELY HOUSE, STUNNING GARDEN

  • 5 of 5
We spent an idyllic week here, the house is great and equipped with pretty much everything, the garden is lovely, very lush and green, quite big and full of fruit trees. I can only imagine how gorgeous it must look when all the oranges are ripe! We didn't feel the need to go anywhere during the day, just relaxed on the terrace or by the pool. You can walk into town in about 20 minutes, or there's a great campsite just up the road which does really nice food. The setting of the house is extremely quiet, not visible from the road, all you can hear are birds and cicadas. We've rented several holiday houses over the years, and it's so difficult to find exactly what you're looking for. This ticked all the boxes for us, and it's the only house we've wanted to come back to. Looking forward to the next visit!

EINE OASE!

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren eine Woche im Cortijo El Cura am Rande von Orgiva in den Alpujarras - wunderbar! Nur einen Nachmittag im grünen Garten (Orangenbäume) sitzen, lesen oder Musik hören und auf die Berge schauen ist Erholung pur nach dem grauen November in Hamburg. Das Haus ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und hat eine bestens ausgestattete Küche (auch die Betten bzw. Matratzen sind top - habe geschlafen wie ein Murmeltier) - alles sauber und gut gepflegt. Sehr zu empfehlen! Wir wollen gerne im Frühjahr noch einmal dorthin und uns noch ein bißchen mehr umgucken, Granada, das Meer und die Berge - alles mit dem Auto in einer halben Stunde erreichbar ...

Orgiva is a lively Andalusia market village, picturesque situated in a large valley in the south of Granada, right under under Europe’s clearest night sky, 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. It has the steep inclinational, terraced slopes of the Alpujarras with its white shaped mountain villages to the north, the vineyard area La Contraviesa to the east and the completely virgin, wild and unspoiled hills of Sierra Lujar to the south, 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.

From the property it takes 20 min. to walk to Órgiva over a country lane.

Only 5 miles away is Lanjaron, the old traditional water and bath spa recently renovated with any kind of wellness oservices.

In the area as in the high mountains are many marked hiking trails, which are passing by fresh mountain rivers and alpine spring lagoons , perfect to enjoy a refreshing break or a even a stimulating bath.

It is only 25 km to the Costa Tropical, where you still will find beautiful and peaceful bays without any buildings, only a Chiringuito (beach hut/fish restaurant) right beside the water.

It is 50 Km to the marvellous and indescribable beauty town of Granada and the magic and breathtaking Moorish- medieval palaces of the Alhambra.

Our property is on an organic farm and we produce our own organic extra virgin olive oil and almost all over the year our guests can find rip fruits ready to be taken right from the trees.

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

Golf: On of the attractive and noble advantages of Andalucia is that all places of interes and any kind of tourist and gastronomic attractions and infrastructures are well running whole over the year and there is no 'hibernation' out of the high seasons and over the winter time.

To the next golf course it takes 25km driving down to the beach.

Ski: Experience a completely different skiing holiday: in southern Spain! Depending on your mood and the weather conditions, you can go skiing in the Sierra Nevada, lap up the sunshine under a palm tree at a street cafe on the Costa Tropical or enjoy a tour of the world famous Alhambra Palace in the fascinating and light-hearted student city of Granada Sierra Nevada (80 km from the house) is the most modern ski resort in Spain and has more sunny days than any other ski resort in Europe. A high certainty of snow, enjoying 76 km long, wide ski runs on altitudes between 3400m and 2000m, low prices and a really friendly environment make Sierra Nevada an ideal winter holiday destination. While back at the cosy holiday home there will be a welcoming open fire in the chimney and if you wish a Finnish wood sauna, which we will be happy to prepare for you by prior arrangement. There are a telephone information line and a website which give information about the weather conditions at the ski resort.

As you will see, good quality equipment (like new pocket-sprung mattresses, duvets, double glazed windows and doors, a powerful air condition for heating in Winter and cooling in Summer) and a very well done insulation guarantees comfortable winter nights and pleasurable “siestas” on a hot summer high noon. From the land you have a wonderful wide view over the mountains and the valley. In winter time you can enjoy the view to the snow covered mountains having a sun bath on the terrace or beside the pool. We want you to have the most interesting and amazing holiday ever and to enjoy an especially relaxing stay with us.
