VILLA FOR RENT IN LAS ALPUJARRAS
We have owned our villa in the beautiful region of Las Alpujarras since 2003. Located in the small market town of ORGIVA, lying at 400 metres on the south side of the Sierra Nevada, we are less than 2 hours drive from Malaga or only 1 hour from Granada. The area enjoys 300 days of sunshine per year, and was the last bastion of the Moors before they finally fled from Spain. Orgiva is overlooked by the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada, and to the south by the coastal range of Sierra de Lujar.
Our villa is situated in a quiet spot on the edge of Orgiva, and only 10 minutes walk from the centre, where you can find restaurants, banks, supermarkets and lots of other shops. The house can sleep up to 6 people in three twin/double bedrooms, and has a large lounge furnished in Moroccan style, a dining room furnished in traditional Spanish style, a kitchen, bathroom, and a second separate w.c. Outside there is a small garden at the front, patio at the rear, and a roof terrace shaded by vines with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.
There are numerous flights to Malaga from most UK airports, so is the easiest access point for most people. Alternatively there are limited direct flights to Granada with British Airways or Ryanair. Orgiva can be reached from either airport by bus, but it is much easier to hire a car for your stay as costs are very cheap. There is now a motorway linking both cities to the Alpujarras.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO?
The area is very popular with walkers and cyclists. There is an extensive network of footpaths and mountain tracks, most of them waymarked, linking the mountain villages and to the main peaks of the Sierra Nevada. There are several guidebooks in English left at the house for the use of visitors.
Alternatively there is plenty of sightseeing in the picturesque villages that are popular with artists and craftsmen, as well as people practising various types of therapy. Granada is just an hour away by car, and the coast is reached in only 30 minutes.
Rental of the villa costs £350 per week throughout the year. The cost includes bed linen and towels, and all utilities.
