About the property

2bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms,build in traditional Alpujarra style,nature pur

The delightful property of LOV is situated at 800m & lies amongst centuries old organic olive trees, originally planted by the Moors, giving very private & tranquil surroundings . From the poolside terrace enjoy a magnificent view of the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada with whitewashed villages & shady woodlands sweeping down to the valley floor. The cortijo is truly idylic in its setting with each season bringing its own delights. Soaking up the sun, hearing the faint russle of the palm leaves , watching the soaring flight of the eagles above you, watching butterflies & listening to the birds sing, you understand the true meaning of a totally relaxing & stressfree vacation. The cortijo is very light, spacious, well equipped & with its love to detail offers you a home away from home & a warm welcome. The thick walls, double glazing & insulated roof ensures a cool house in summer & a cosy warm home in winter.The helpful but unobtrusive owners live nearby.

A perfect haven

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our 3rd stay at LOV and have come home relaxed, refreshed, ready to book again. No hassle, no bothers - just clean fresh air, fabulous accommodation, beautifully clean and supplied with anything we could wish for.

Perfect hosts - Bettina and Axel, were on hand if needed, but in no way intrusive - lovely people.

Perfect relaxation from the humdrum of daily life.

Treat yourselves to a stay here. You will go home a different person.

Thank you Tina, it was so lovely to see you again! Until our next trip 🥂

I'm writing this review 6 months after the holiday whilst reading my holiday diary, and I have to say it's wonderful to be transported back to the hills above Orgiva and the villa that was our home for 8 nights.

We chose to come in June when it shouldn't have been so hot, but it was! So we were glad to be in the mountains and in the shade until 8.30am, which made the house cool enough to sleep.

We loved being amongst the olives and fruit trees. There's nothing quite like fruit fresh from the tree. Bettina provided other fruit on arrival and bread and fresh eggs too - she's a helpful, laid-back owner who doesn't intrude but is there if you need her. Just the way we like it.

This was the perfect place for us. Very private, secluded (the approach road is not for the faint of heart!), within easy reach of the town and the beautiful white villages high in the mountains and just a great place to relax. If it wasn't for our tendency to always visit new places we would certainly return regularly, and we would recommend LOV to anyone.

Perfect peace

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with LOV as soon as we arrived. Bettina was very welcoming and the cottage was comfortable, well-equipped, spotlessly clean and cosy - with the log fire lit in the evening. Surrounded by lemon and avocado trees it was the perfect place to relax and soak up some early season sun. The surrounding area provides wonderful walking and nearby Orgiva is a pleasant place to shop for food. An easy drive from Malaga airport. Look forward to returning next year!

Superb stay in the Alpujarra

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for more - stunning location, peaceful surroundings, spotlessly clean and with easy access to Orgiva and its resturants and bars. Tina and Axel were so kind, not only with their generous welcome pack (wine, cheese, bread and more) but also their organic vegetables, olive oil and eggs. A good base for walking and discovering the Alpujarras and we would thoroughly recommend to all our friends.

A beautiful and secluded get away

  • 5 of 5

We are just finishing a wonderful two week break at Los Olivos Viejos. It is going to be so hard to go back to England after this very relaxing holiday. LOV is situated above Orgiva, with amazing views over the mountains. My favourite thing, indeed,has been to sit on the shady terrace watching the sunlight and clear blue skies above the mountain. The garden is beautiful, with well tended and aromatic shrubs and flowers surrounding the pool. Around the whole house is the grove of ancient olive trees,as well as fruit trees in abundance. The villa itself has been just right for a family of four (including two children, 10 and 11). On arrival, it was wonderful to find so many things provided, including eggs and olive oil. The villa was scrupulously clean, and the pool well maintained throughout our stay. We can thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Thank you Bettina and Axel!

Oasis of peace and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed a week at LOV in July 2014 and we enjoyed every bit of it!

It is a very welcoming house, arranged with care and eye for detail. We arrived on a hot afternoon and from the first steps in the house we fell in love with the quiet and cheerful place, with a chilled out and perfumed atmosphere.

The owners live higher up the hill and take good care of the property. They make sure you find all you need in the house upon arrival. Handy for cooking is the fact that all needed tools are there, but also all the basic ingredients (from salt to honey and olive oil, fresh herbs, eggs,...).

My 10y old son enjoyed the stay as well. Plenty of opportunities to satisfy his curiosity and need to burn energy. The cat Missy and the dog Benson were his dear friends in no time. And feeding the fishes and the chickens at evening were a mutual joy :-)

We rarely find such good places for washing away stress, noise and rust out of our system. We'll come back for sure, now that we know it. Thanks Bettina & Axel!

Car: necessary

Orgiva, the nearest village, lies about 500m below Lov and 5 km downhill. You’ll find banks, cash machines, post office, various supermarkets, 2 health shops, a police station and an emergency health center. A GP, English spoken, lives 300m uphill. Orgiva has developed into an alternative center, combining old Spanish tradition with the ecological orientated influence of the foreign community. This can be experienced every Thursday, 'Orgivas' market day.

The national Nature Park of Sierra Nevada starts just a few km above Cañar. Lovely for walks even in summer time. You will rather see a mountain goat or an Eagle soaring overhead , than meeting another hiker. Getting up to the top of Mulhacen, 3800m, is a spectacular experience .
