About this listing
This year we are growing lots of organic vegetables from GM free seed which you are welcome to buy.
Welcome to this beautiful mountain eco-farm hostel.
We offer this double bed room in a beautifully restored cottage typical of this region, which is hidden away in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is peaceful and private, with lovely views and is a great base to explore this stunning corner of Spain known as La Alpujarra.
The facilities are simple but charming and include a kitchen-dining room and a cosy sitting room area with a wood burning stove. There is also a shaded dining patio. The bathroom consists of a bath with a shower and wash basin and the eco-friendly compost loo is situated down a short path.
The land is terraced and wooded with many fruit trees. There is fruit in season most of the year including oranges, figs, grapes and pomegranates. Guests are welcome to help themselves! There is a chlorine-free swimming pool filled weekly with fresh mountain water and hammocks near by to relax in.
The local market town of Orgiva is just a 20 minute stroll, with a variety of bars and restaurants to enjoy. This is where to catch the buses to get around the region for those without a car.
This area is noted for its wild beauty and is ideal for those people who love mountain walking, bird watching, horse riding and love being in the heart of nature.
There are stunning views from the white villages of Capileira, Pampaniera and Trevelis, and on a clear day, it is possible to see as far as Morocco!
If you want to go further afield; it is 1 hours drive to the fabled city of Granada famous for the Alhambra Palace and 40 minutes by car to the beaches of the Costa Tropical.
