Inland there are some interesting places to visit such as Vegel ( 20 minute drive) where there is a safari park, Fuentes D'algar where there are waterfalls on route and Guadelest which is very pretty if not a bit touristy.
Orba itself is a small unspoilt Spanish villiage with winding streets and several coffee shops and restaurants . There is an excellent spa/salon run by an English couple offering Elemis massages, facials, reflexology pedicures and manicures as well as hairdressing and there are two small supermarkets as well as several local food shops where fresh produce can be purchased. Depending on what time of year you go, there are frequent fiestas held in the village including a bull run.....and these always finish with specacular fireworks displays which can be seen clearly and enjoyed from the terrace back at the villa.
