Overview

Here we have a very nicely put together villa in the Mediterranean mountain style that is immediately recognizable as Las Alpujarras. The whitewashed cottage look is complemented very nicely by a beautiful interior with comprehensive facilities, a smartly finished swimming pool, and loads of outdoor space in the form of patio-terraces, garden and a field.

Its a very private retreat, not overlooked.

The Low Alpujarra location has it interestingly off the beaten track in warm climes, where the pool season stretches from spring to late autumn. From Orgiva market town, a quiet country lane meanders up the broad river valley for 4 km until runs out of tarmac, and then a track takes you up to the villa at its awe-inspiring vantage point. The track's somewhat uneven but a normal car's all you need as long as you drive with care.

The scenery is thrilling. The dimensions here are so huge that the whole spectacle seems somehow supersized, the big sky, the deep valley, Sierra Lujar mountain opposite...

We found the villa thoroughly convincing, very pleasant inside and out. It feels fresh and cheerful, and both furnishings and appliances maintain high standards. 

The villa has four bedrooms, a double and a single on either wing of the house. All four bedrooms have fans and fresh white Egyptian cotton sheets.

Its just made for Mediterranean-style country life, all ground floor with various doors opening to the outside world. French windows open to patios from the kitchen-diner and living room, and from one of the bedrooms, too. We liked the variety of patio-terraces that offer a change of scene according to the hour of the day. They include a shady outdoor dining area with barbecue.

The swimming pool is salt-filtered and has steps down into the water. It has a neat tile surround in a non-slip white stone which we found particularly attractive. There’s plenty of room for sunbathing on loungers.

By day the pool has grand views; at nighttime there is underwater lighting.

The swimming pool is gated and fenced round with children in mind. Parents should, however, be aware of a drop on the other side of the wooden railings if the children are very small.

Apart from that, the place is a childrens dream. Masses of outdoor space to run around and play in clean, healthy air under a huge sky and their own playground (slide & climbing frame) set up in a field.

The property has plenty of land and the privacy here is virtually complete, except for one field a little further away that is occasionally occupied by a donkey.

The Low Alpujarra location verging on the wilds of Sierra de Jubiley is dominated by the mass of Sierra de Lujar above the river Guadalfeo. It’s unlike the alpine environment of the high mountains, and more reminiscent of the light, colours and topography of northern Morocco.

Shopping, café-bars with terraces, restaurants and market are all in Orgiva ten minutes away. From here, you can choose from three roads for very different day trips: up to the mountain villages of the High Alpujarra, to Granada and the Alhambra, or to beaches on the coast 40 minutes away.

Rob and Meta | September | 2016

Hello all, We have spend two weeks in this beautiful environment, and made all the pictures that we have seen, ourselves. So yes, it does exist: an unspoilt hidden place. We do not have a complaint about anything, only minor issue is that it is a bit away from supermarkets and some pleasure as nice terracces. It takes 3 quarters to go to nice places like Nerja for instances, on a very narrow road. Service - from cleaning to administration - of Rustical Travel was excellent.

Rhona | August | 2016

This is one of the best villas we have stayed in, so good you don't really want to go anywhere else. Its located up in the mountains and the scenery is beautiful. Its a small 10 minute one way track out of Orgiva and then you come to a grove of trees and your at the villa. Once inside, Its even better than the pictures and definitely has the wow factor. The garden is huge and is packed with beautiful flowers and fruit trees. The villa is really well equipped, the kitchen has everything you may need- dishwasher tabs, washing powder, etc so you don't need to bring anything like that with you. There was olive oil available, tea, coffee, and some milk and water to get you started. Beds were comfortable and everything was clean. There was a playstation and Wii, the TV channels were just local ones, but we didn't really bother with it at all. It was so nice outside, that's where we spent most of our time by the best feature - the pool. The pool was beautiful, large, clean and quite deep at one end there is a good bag of pool toys and inflatables available in the outdoor store. My little boy learned to swim in that pool, its a lovely little area around the pool with lots of loungers and table, parasol. There is an impressive BBQ area, but one of the best spots is the outside sofa bed - perfect for reading and relaxing. We visited the little white washed villages, high up in the mountains (Capileira, Bubión) we also visited Granada, if you want to visit the Alhambra, please book in advance or you could be disappointed! All in all an amazing villa, the wine and welcome card was a lovely personal touch - thank-you. We also thought Rustic Travel were great, they sent out a fantastic information pack prior to our hols."

This is the second time we have stayed at this wonderful property (booked through Rustical Travel on both occasions), and it was just as beautiful as we remembered. The large grounds are great for kids to run around and explore and the pool was a real hit, as were the inflatables which were all in good condition. The air conditioned master bedroom provided welcome relief from the 38C heat of the day. Both Granada and also the coastal beaches are within was reach, as are the nearby mountain villages making this an ideal location to explore this part of Spain. This remains the best Spanish villa we have stayed in and we will definitely be returning."

Cindy | April | 2016

This beautiful, well-maintained property was so delightful that we had a hard time tearing ourselves away to explore nearby areas. The bicyclist biked up to snow-topped mountains; hikers walked nearby hills; the architect prowled white villages. The one-year-old rolled oranges around -- so many balls under those fruit trees! -- and loved stomping in the shallows of the gorgeous pool. Our favorite part of each day was dinner on the porch as the sun set and stars bloomed across the sky. We hope to return."

Louise | August | 2015

Our trip to Orgiva and AP33 was wonderful. The secluded location of the villa with stunning views and grounds made it the perfect get-away. The accommodation was perfect and the villa had everything we needed for a wonderful break with our friends from Australia. The pool was lovely, and the outside eating space was more than we expected. The outside sofa-bed is an inspired creation and was a great way to get out of the heat of the sun and still relax outside. It was exceptionally hot when we stayed there this August and so my only suggestion would be that all the bedrooms need air-conditioning as it was really difficult to sleep at night. Apart from that it was a delight and we would love to return for another visit."

Rustical Update

At the time of this reservation the local temperatures were the hottest ever recorded. The north facing rooms are normally fresh and wonderful for resting at naturally comfortable temperatures.

Heather | August | 2015

We had a great holiday at this beautiful villa - rural Spain made a very interesting change from the usual seaside resorts. Set in a beautiful location, the villa had everything, from a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable tasteful decor and furnishings to a magnificent terraced garden,complete with a children's play area and a superb pool. We enjoyed wandering round the garden and picking fresh figs,pomegranates and almonds ! It was interesting to see some of the places mentioned in "Driving Over Lemons" plus the mountain villages from Pampaneira to Trevelez, and of course Granada. The staff at the villa were friendly and extremely helpful, and we also found Rustcal Travel very helpful and easy to deal with. We found your travel information very useful. Altogether an excellent holiday."

Cannot recommend highly enough. A beautifully renovated traditional Spanish finca with every home comfort you could need. Absolutely stunning location with views across the rolling hills. Watching the light change as the sun sets from any of the comfy seating areas around the house and the pool was a lovely end to each day. This was the second time we have been and it was as good as we had remembered. We will be back again."

Hannah | August | 2013

Beautiful villa and we really enjoyed our stay. The view was absolutely stunning, and it was fun to look up at the stars every night. There were two things which we didn't enjoy; the first was the road up to the villa. Whilst the description told us that it was a rough road, we didn't realise how dangerous it actually was and so hadn't hired the right car to do the journey. It would have been useful for the dangers of the road to have been spelled out fully - for example we couldn't have navigated it when dark. The other factor was the sheer volume of wasps; whilst I know that this can't be helped, we couldn't eat outside as often as we wanted which defeated the purpose of booking the villa."

In early summer 2014 the track to the villa has been improved. We drove to the villa in March 2014 and it was a slightly bumpy but fine, now it is in better condition.
