Casa Vincente is situated 1 500 m from the lively little town of Órgiva. The house stands in 5 000 m2 of its own land with olive trees.
The 8 x 4 m tiled pool is surrounded by a fence, making it safe for non-swimming small children, who can enjoy playing on the wide steps which lead into the pool at the shallow end. The depth of the pool ranges from 1.20 m to 1.80m at the deep end.
Outside, there is a terrace, sheltered from the sun, where a meal can be enjoyed, and a barbecue.

There are three bedrooms (the master bedroom with a double bed, the second bedroom with two single beds, and another with a single bed), a living room, a bathroom with a shower and a fully equipped kitchen including a washing machine. A cot and a high chair are available on request.
There are traditional Spanish timber shutters on all the windows, which the parents of young children will find reassuring. The house is decorated in rustic style, with simple yet tasteful wooden furniture. In the living room there are two sofas and a table which sits six. The focal point of the room is a pueblo-style fireplace. There is TV and a DVD player. The bedrooms have ceiling fans.
In the well-equipped kitchen there is a fridge freezer, a modern stove, a microwave, a washing machine and the full range of cooking utensils.
The pleasantly tiled bathroom has a shower and a wash-hand basin, but no bath.
There is ample parking directly outside the house and access is easy. The house stands some 100 m from the road. It is suitable for the elderly or those who find walking difficult.
The market town of Órgiva lies in the valley which separates the dramatic mountain
range of the Sierra Nevada to the north from the Sierra Lújar to the south,
seen in the photos above. From the garden of Casa Vincente, you can enjoy
a very much closer look at that impressive mountain range.

Much of the journey is now on high speed rail although an overnight sleeper journey is more restful.

CAR HIRE, BUSES etc:
It is possible to reach Órgiva by bus from Málaga in
approximately 3 hours with a 10 minute walk from the bus stop to the
house in Órgiva. It is also possible to get to Granada and
to the sea on public transport quite easily. However, a hired car
will certainly provide much more flexibility and freedom to explore.
We recommend Malaga
Car Hire (http://www.malagacarhire.com),
telephone number in UK: (020) 8398 2662 (int +44 20 83 98 26 62) for
the cheapest all-inclusive rates.

The Alsa web-site will not show connections so journeys via Granada
need to be entered in two stages.
