Orgiva, Province of Granada, Andalucia
Cortijo Caliz has only recently become a holiday home, we therefore have just four reviews to boast of (see Trip Advisor) but they are all four star! This is a truly lovely house, very Spanish and full of charm and character. We have refurbished it with style and filled it with lovely furniture, some modern and some antique, with Moroccan and Spanish influences.

The house sits in half an acre of cyprus, olive and almond trees stretching across three terraces. On the lower terrace, partly secluded by trees and shrubs, is the 9m (30ft) swimming pool with spacious stone terrace, perfect for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade. There are sun loungers and umbrellas but for most of the day there is shade in one perfect spot, under the old olive tree.

We have spent much time creating a beautiful garden, from the formal entrance garden to the...

We had an absolutely fantastic family holiday here this summer. Fabulous location, and extremely well appointed, comfortable and spacious house, and a lovely well cared for garden. Orgiva is five minutes away, and has everything you need, the mountain scenery is stunning. Tina is a brilliant host and will make sure you have everything you need whilst keeping a low...

We had a good feeling about this place when we booked it. We weren't disappointed. A couple of weeks before we came we got an email from Tina confirming the travel arrangements and letting us know what the facilities were. On arrival we walked through the cool manicured gardens leading up to the house. She was there to briefly greet...

The owner walked past our bedroom windows , the pool , dining patio , and gardens to their car , handyman...

Management response:

I'm so sorry our villa disappointed. We'll take your comments on board and will make some adjustments, we've never had this issue before but clearly things were less than perfect for you two. We constantly try to improve what's on offer here, but we are in the countryside which is sometimes a bit less than peaceful!

Additional amenities & feature info
A beautiful old, country house with lots of room to move. With 5 beds / 4 bathrooms, it sleeps 10 plus baby comfortably.

The focal point is the large, double-height living space with galleria around two sides leading to bedroom 1. The dining area is spacious with dining for 10, it's situated on a raised level in the large living space and leads to the kitchen. Typical of an old Spanish country house it is on many levels but this makes the house interesting and special. From the dining area you enter the kitchen which leads onto a south facing patio with sofa, coffee table and dining table, perfect for al fresco drinks and dining for 10. From this terrace there are spectacular views of the coastal mountains and the sweep of the valley. It's just fantastic at sunset.

About the neighbourhood
Orgiva is in the Alpujarra Valley which is an area renowned for its natural beauty. We are 35 mins drive from the Costa Del Sol, the nearest beach is at Motril. There are many beautiful beaches and interesting resorts including Almunecar (Jazz Festival in mid July) La Herradura, and Nerja which has several beaches.
Orgiva itself is a charming working/market town with all the necessary amenities including supermarkets, banks and a hospital. There are many bars and restaurants and the town's central Plaza really buzzes at night, so there's plenty to do until the early hours, including two discos.
The Alpujarra Valley is famous for its mountain walks and the three highest villages in Spain are half an hours drive from Orgiva, Capilliera is one of Spain's prettiest villages. Ther...
