Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in June 2017

This was our first year just the two of us, and we wanted to be in a less touristy resort than we would have picked with the kids. We like walking, so Orgiva seemed the an excellent location for this.
We were met by America G and her brother in Orgiva, who then guided us to the Cortijo. It is small, quaint and the views are stunning. We felt this was the place we could relax for two weeks. Everything is basic, if you are used to 4/5 star villas (as we are) then initially it may be a shock. But this is what we wanted this year. The kitchen has an oven, microwave, washing machine, coffee maker, toaster, so what more do you need? The shower was good, always hot and not a trickle! Putting your loo paper in a pedal bin and not being able to flush it away, is not what most of us are used to, but this is the countryside, not a cosmopolitan resort. If this isn't for you, then I have warned you! Having been to Peru, this didn't faze us! We loved chiling in the hammocks...

Management response:

Thank you very much for your nice words. I hope to see you again. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Wow, the Cortijo La Escanuela is a special place. I spent several days here in June and had an incredible experience. The house is very well maintained, I found everything clean, organized, and working well. The pool is a life saver and is perfect for cooling off after a day of exploring the nearby towns, beaches, or mountains (breathtaking views of the Alpujarras) which are all within a short drive. The views over the cortijo-filled valley outside of the home is beautiful, and provides a perfect setting to watch the sunset. The owner of La Escanuela is an extremely fun, friendly, and kind woman who made my stay more enjoyable just by talking to me- she has created a great location for a relaxing vacationthat is suitable for families, couples, or groups of friends to enjoy. This place has something for everyone and if you stay here you will surely enjoy your visit.
