Orba Village: Casa Alegria is located in a residential area just a short walk from the centre of the rural Spanish village of Orba, with its many amenities, and the Orba valley floor with its masses of orange groves. Casa Alegria and the village of Orba have breathtaking mountain scenery all around, with views to the sea from parts of the valley, sandy beaches are just a 20 minute drive away.

The valley of Orba, from which the village takes its name, has a mild climate, excellent water and is surrounded by orange groves, lemon trees, almonds, and of course olives. The village sits at the head of the valley surrounded by mountains with the Mediterranean sea at the valley foot.

Orba is a small, typical Spanish country village with something over 2,100 inhabitants. The area still retains its local Spanish culture with many Fiestas during the year, featuring a wide variety of different events including dancing in the streets, firework displays, marching bands, religious celebrations and parades. The village has all the facilities you are likely to need, 24 hr cash points, 24/7 access to a medical centre, supermarket, bars and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic holiday last year. The Villa and Orba are great places and is very close to the beach (15 mins in car).



The villa is very well equipped and the beds (most important parts!) were the best that I have slept in for a villa.



We liked it so much we have booked again for 2017

Excellent Villa,everything you could wish for in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for one week in July and we will be returning next year. it is exactly as described by Pete and Ann, a home from home, it is the best equipped villa we have stayed in - well maintained inside and out and with a beautiful pool.

The meet and greet with Janet was perfect and Lorraine was there to help during our stay and the welcome pack a real bonus. The Villa is situated in a quiet location but within easy walking distance from the village of Orba . Orba is a lovely village with a good selection of bars, restaurants and supermarket.There is also a geat Italian Restaurant nearby.

Situated close to the Jalon Valley and its villages, this is a beautiful part of Spain.

Cant wait for next Year ! Kevin and Heather

If you’re going to pick a Spanish villa choose this one.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Alegria acts as a comfortable base for your Spanish adventure, if you are considering this place then you will be hiring a car and if you’re doing that then you won’t be the type to be spending all of your hols on a beach all day.

You are a short ten minute walk from the village so you can leave the car at the villa if you want to partake of the local vino with your meal of an evening, I would recommend the pizzeria at the local pool, really good atmosphere lots of locals use it, great pizza and pasta and the best fillet steak I’ve ever had and the house wine is lovely and only 4 euros a bottle.

There is plenty to do and see locally the blue book in the villa will give you plenty of ideas and tips of where to go and what to do, although I have a wife for that sort of thing.

The villa is comfy and spacious with a big old flatscreen tv, the a/c gets the place cooled down quickly and if you want to cook then the kitchen has pretty much all you need, although the restaurant prices are very reasonable. Outside there are plenty of spaces to shelter from the sun if you want to sit out and there are sun beds as well. The pool is fab it is as big as it looks, although quite deep at one end, at the shallow end there are easy access steps into the pool.

The views around the area are stunning get yourself up the mountain roads and it is breathtakingly beautiful although the roads themselves can be a little hairy, get yourself to Guadelest, brilliant drive. We had a great time here, be careful you don’t do too much or you might come back needing a holiday....like me.

Extremely well equipped and very comfortable villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had been looking forward to our stay at Casa Alegria and we were not disappointed in any way. The villa is extremely well equipped, very comfortable, and the pool was perfect. Also the wifi was a godsend as we had our teenagers with us! Very easy walk into Orba where there are several restaurants to choose from, a large supermarket, butchers, bakery etc. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area. We will definitely be returning to this lovely villa. Thank you Pete and Ann.

Lovely holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our three week stay at the villa, lovely outside space and pool as the weather was exceptionally hot. Very convenient being so near the village and a short walk to the village square, where there is some excellent bars and restaurants.

Great Villa - Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Alegria, all communications from start to finish were handled in a very timely manner, Ann & Peter had arranged for Janet to meet us in Orba who directed us and to show us around the Villa, The Villa itself is down a quiet no through road, very peacefull, private and safe. It contained everything that you would need, great Air conditioning (very much needed) a very nice pool not overlooked with good pool equipment (the pool hamocks were a nice touch) an ideal place to discover all the surrounding countryside the guest book was full of great idea of places to visit and restaurants to try.

All in All we had a great although a very short two week holiday at Casa Alegria.
