The space

Welcome to this beautiful mountain eco-farm .

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.

Other things to note

Whilst an electric heater is provided in the bedroom during the winter months, a small charge is made for logs for the wood burning stove.

The directions to rita house were clear and although she was no there a friend was who made us feel very welcome. The house is on the side of a steep hill and it is very picturesque and characterful. There are cats and dogs. The house is very rural and the facilities are basic. The shower head needs fixing and the compost toilet is very smelly.

We stayed at Rita's place for two days and loved being there: the beautiful garden, natural swimming pool, the quietness of being in the middle of nature... Orgiva is the ideal place to plan hiking trips in the Alpujarras (visit the info centre in Pampaneira for good advice) and near to Granada and the coast. The steep climb upon the hill to reach Rita's house is worth it!

A wonderful place in the middle of nature. A little hard to find, but once there we had a wonderful time. Rita is a very nice person and makes you feel at home. Surrounded by fruit trees, a natural swimming pool and a toilet with the best view ever. We highly recommend this place.

Rita is a lovely host who goes out of her way to make you feel at home. The place is very idyllic and somewhat remote, reached by a walk up a hill on unpaved road. Ideal if you want to get away from it all. There's a compass toilet with spectacular view over the valley.

My stay with Rita went very well. I stayed for a week and felt so relaxed by the end of it. The place is lovely. It's not fancy, more rustic. And Rita was a great host and she even used her local knowledge to oraganise things to do.

I am sorry to say, I never got to meet Rita or her lovely home in person. We were unable to make it up the track with our car to her place. An unfortunate week long rainstorm made the road hard for us to navigate. Thru back and forth communications we were able to work out a resolution that worked for both of us.

Words cannot describe what a special place this is. One of those where magic happens. Of course for nature lovers and those that dont mind a little walk up to the house or getting a little lost before finding the hidden paradise..but then probably not the case as you wouldnt be reading the reviews. Location and amenities all fantastic! Hoping to be back one day.

I moved to Spain from N Yorkshire with my family in 1983. We bought this farm to raise our children in the nature, growing our own organic veg. rebuilding and restoring in traditional style the old farmhouse and living a very simple life without electricity or T.V! My husband was a craftsman in wood which is reflected in our home.
Now my 2 half Spanish grandchildren love to visit and enjoy my farm as their father once did, being in the nature, playing with my 3 dogs and 2 cats, swimming in summer, picking and eating fruit straight from the trees..
I still love gardening, and being outside and walking my dogs . I am also a feng shui practitioner and especially love dowsing. I also like to travel when I can and enjoyed a trip to Thailand this year (2011) where I spent a week on an elephant sanctuary as a volunteer which included feeding and then bathing the elephants in the river! In the past I have been on shamanic journeys to Mexico and Peru. I enjoy meeting people and welcoming fellow travelers and kindred spirits to my home and sharing with them my way of life. I feel I have been very blessed.
