Nestling in the pretty Tíjola valley amongst fields of olive groves, with the imposing Sierra Nevada mountains behind and the rolling hills of the Sierra de Lújar in front, this charming cottage enjoys an idyllic location and forms a picturesque rural retreat for a couple or small group.
All around, the valley floor is populated with neatly ordered fields of fruit trees, across which the views are uninterrupted towards the surrounding hills and mountains that make this such a favoured area amongst trekking enthusiasts and nature lovers. With its well kept lawn and smartly tiled terraces, the pretty garden of Casa El Valle forms a pleasant and comfortable spot from which to soak up this vista, whilst parents supervising young children will appreciate the security provided by the fence that encloses the pool. Inside, the accommodation is equally appealing, thanks to the warm hues of colour washed walls and matching fabrics that blend beautifully with exposed wooden beams and attractive furnishings.
Whilst its setting is essentially rural, the house is nevertheless pleasingly close to amenities. A scenic drive of just 3.5 km along the country lane that wends its way through the valley brings you to the local town of Órgiva, which is home to a range of shops, restaurants and a colourful weekly market. Alternatively you may wish to spend a day exploring the area’s pretty mountain villages, head south to one of the beaches of the Costa Tropical (30 minutes) or soak up the historical sights of the Moorish city of Granada (40 minutes).
