1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Orgiva, Province of Granada, Andalucia
Romantic stay in rural Andalucia. Studio cottage with sole use of pool. Self catering or bed & breakfast. La Rueda, our cortijo and the cottage we rent, is situated 5km outside Orgiva in a hamlet called Los Agustines, at the southern foothills of the Sierra Nevada. This is still a 'living' community of mainly vegetable farmers who till their land below us mostly by hand. Sit in your hammock and watch them. Often one of our lovely neighbours knocks on the door to share his produce with us. Every afternoon some goats with bells around their necks make their way down to the fields, or Paco or Jose go by with their mule. This place really is as idyllic as it sounds! Our cottage is set in its own small garden and is surrounded by lots of lovely colours and smells. If you don't feel like cooking and want to have a relaxing time... Read more

Interaction with guests
Generally we clean the house ourselves and are there to greet our guests and to show them around. If we are away, we have neighbours who do that for us, but we are ALWAYS reach - and available via Email or phone , in case our guests have questions.
There is lots of info in the house, but we are more than happy to tell you about the local area, the wonderful handicraft you can find around here, tell you about the local fiestas, cultural visits our walks to do.
We love living here and would like our guests to enjoy this beautiful place as much as we do!!

Naomi and Stefan gave us a wonderful holiday in their pretty, rustic cottage. We had everything we needed during our week there - a comfortable bed, good shower, kitchen, lovely gardens with bbq area overlooking the olive groves and mountains, swimming pool perfect for cooling off after a busy day out. We went on some amazing walks, a village musical...

La Rueda is a wonderful spot to get away from it all, located at the end of a winding lane there is very little traffic and great views over the olive groves and hills. The cottage is compact but has all you need for two and the little pool provides a lovely place to sit and cool off. The garden...

Management response:

Thanks a lot for that, it was lovely having you with us and seeing, that you enjoyed the area and La Rueda of course. There is plenty of more hikes in the area, so maybe we will meet again one day. We do provide covers for the loungers, on request and free of charge. Most guests don´t seem to use...

About the neighbourhood
The lovely and unique villages of the Alpujarra are only 30 mins away, great for just strolling about hte village or some serious hikes into the Siera Nevada. Great also to have a look at some outstanding local handicrafts.<BR>The Alhambra (Granada) for sure worth a visit, also Granada itself deserves a full day of roaming around.<BR><BR>The nearest beaches are from half an hour away. Salobreña, Almuñecar, La Herradura or Nerja to name only a few. Between La Herradura and Nerja are a couple of unspoilt and very private little coves, bring your picnic and enjoy the tranquility. Enquire about diving in the diving centres of Marina del Este or La Herradura.<BR>Only 40 mins down on the coast between Motril and Salobreña we have a lovely golf course in a unique setting.... more
Getting around
We would recommend a car, since it is just more convenient. Having said that, quite a few guests come without and use public transport to get here or we can arrange for a pick-up service from the airport (extra charge).
There is one direct bus from Malaga to orgiva, every working day, from Orgiva we can pick you up. The nearest trainstation would be in Granada.
