El Castillo Overlooking Orgiva Valley

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good time here. The owners Peter and Angelika had informed us that they would be away on our arrival but they had made perfect arrangements with friends to meet and greet us.

The property was clean and spacious enough for the two of us. The views along the valley and across to Orgiva really do justice to the name “The Castle”.

The pool was crystal clear and most welcoming as was the air conditioning given that the temperatures were 10 degrees above normal for the year.

Orgiva is the nearest town less than 10 minutes by car where there are numerous restaurants and three supermarkets. The coast is about 40 minute in the car.

Plenty of good walking and routes can be found in most of the neighboring white villages. The only fault was typical to the English “no kettle” but then what were pans made for!

All in all a great area and a great position which we would recommend if you are looking for a rural villa that is not too far from the facilities.

Spacious villa with swimming pool and great views over surrounding hills

  • 5 of 5

Great location in rural south Spain on edge of Sierra Nevada but only about 30 minutes drive from coast and beaches. Owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a very enjoyable five day stay in the villa which had excellent facilities.

After being greeted at a pre-arranged meeting place, we were taken through the village of Los Tablones to a beautiful villa high on the mountain edge. Immediately, we were taken back by its perfect location. The villa itself, was spotless with everything we could possibly need. There were so many different places to sit and admire the scenery, that we had names for each terrace. There was also 2 BBQ areas and a lovely pool. This place truly became our home for 8 days and touched our hearts. Orgiva is a 10 minute car ride away but the quiet location of this villa made it all the more special. I would highly recommend it and we plan to return again soon. Thankyou Mr and Mrs Hamacher

We were met at a pre-arranged meeting point and taken to the property.On arrival we were given a very warm welcome by both of the owner's and taken on a tour of the property.There is everything that you need for a very comfortable stay with a very well equipped kitchen.

The only thing that i would have liked would have been some English speaking channels on the t.v. But there again they may not have many english speaking visitor's.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owner's and i would stay there again if i were to visit the area again.

Thankyou for a very nice week

Splendide !

  • 5 of 5

Maison avec toutes les commodités nécessaires, notamment le Wifi. Le site est fabuleux avec une vue magnifique sur les montagnes de l'Alpujaras. L'Alhambra est à moins de 60Km. Disponibilité et gentillesse de la gérante de la propriété.
