Perintín is an old lovingly restored orchard house at the most beautiful and tranquil corner of the Ricote Valley. Surrounded by astonishing views, it's perfect for 2, 3 or 4 people, having two bedrooms, a comfy kitchen, a particular bathroom and a spatious and private courtyard.
The Cottage is old fashioned and traditional but has been renovated to a very high standard so that, for example, the bathroom and the kitchen have modern amenities. As part of the organic estate La Era de Oxox, you can enjoy agrotourism by collecting veggies and fruits and sharing other farm tasks.
The cottage is light and tranquil. It has a totally equipped kitchen, wood-burning stove, a quiet luminous courtyard sheltered beneath the hill, garage, and fantastic views of the orchard, the hills and the river. Few kilometers around there are many good restaurants, a couple of local shops, museums and lots of nice hiking and cycling routes, canoeing and riding activities...
Within the protected area of the Ricote Hills, insolated but close to a local lowtravelled road, Perintin is just a few meters from the River Segura at the foot of the spectacular Rocky Cliffs of El Chinte, a protected area.
Perintin is a short walk into the village of Ojós -the smallest village of the Murcian region-, 10 minutes from the Spa in Archena, 30 minutes from the City of Murcia, 50 minutes from the beaches of the Mediterranean, an hour from El Altet airport (Alicante), three hours from the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park and 3,5 hours from Madrid.
Perintin is located in the most remarkable spot of the Ricote Valley, you will enjoy an special atmosphere full of positive energy and you will feel it as your own home from the very first minute!

Interaction with Guests
The Cottage is part of the La Era de Oxox farm. We live just 200 meters from there, although the mountains prevent from disturbing each other. We welcome guests to visit the farm and we can guide them along the moorish traditional watering net
We enjoyed our 2 nights at Perintin Cottage. The directions were helpful and Natalia had some good suggestions about what do do while we were staying with her. The cottage was fixed up well with a great kitchen and bathroom. We wanted to stay in a place off the main tourist track and that is exactly what we found.
La casa es acojedora y tiene muy buena distribucion. Tiene todo lo que puedes necesitar. Es ideal para parejas. La anfitriona Natalia es muy maja y nos ofreció verduras de su huerto y ademas nos dio total libertad para coger naranjas y limones de sus arboles. Y aunque la casa esta al lado de la carretera no es muy transitable.
I am a local girl. My partner, Denba, is from Mali and we have a little daughter together. We have a small organic oranges and lemons farm, La Era de Oxox, and grow all sorts of other organic food too.
We are both travelled and educated individuals, fluent in English, Catalan, French, Bambara and Soninke and know some Italian and German. We will be happy to give you any advice you might need about the area (places to visit, museums, nicest bars and restaurants, hiking routes, fairs...).
The Ricote Valley, also known as the Moorish Valley, is a mountanious region of Murcia which has had for hundreds of years an irrigation system of cannals and watermills. The river Segura running all along the farm and peculiar mountains all around, allow us to enjoy sunny winters, warm springs and hot summers on the shade of green and fragrant spots, full of birds and flowers of all kinds. It is cool for one month a year only (December-January, and never under 0 degrees Celsius).
Murcia is one of the least touristic regions of Spain, and its Ricote Valley the most astonishing spot, though if you wish to visit the coast, it is only one hour drive to the beach. You will find people here are friendly and Murcian cuisine is wonderful to discover, and you will discover that the Ricote Valley is a trully oasis within Europe!.
If you do not drive, our local bus system is quite reliable, and we are happy to come and collect you sometime from any of the nearby village, and you will find very accurate directions to Ojós here and on our website..
Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions. Be sure both the Cottage and the area will shock you for good!
