Description

Romantic stay in rural Andalucia. Studio cottage with sole use of pool. Self catering or bed & breakfast. La Rueda, our cortijo and the cottage we rent, is situated 5km outside Orgiva in a hamlet called Los Agustines, at the southern foothills of the Sierra Nevada. This is still a 'living' community of mainly vegetable farmers who till their land below us mostly by hand. Sit in your hammock and watch them. Often one of our lovely neighbours knocks on the door to share his produce with us. Every afternoon some goats with bells around their necks make their way down to the fields, or Paco or Jose go by with their mule. This place really is as idyllic as it sounds! Our cottage is set in its own small garden and is surrounded by lots of lovely colours and smells. If you don't feel like cooking and want to have a relaxing time, let us know and we will prepare you breakfast and/or a lovely surprise dinner menu on one of our charming terraces! Come, relax and enjoy!

The Andalucia region

Come and relax! You want to be active? Then join us for coffee and cake in the afternoon! Maybe you'd like to be included in the daily activities? Then help us or our neighbours to pick olives or harvest vegetables or just watch us doing it. You can go for short walks or longer hikes - down into the country past all kinds of exotic trees and/or up into the hills and mountains of the Sierra Nevada. A short stroll into the country is highly recommended during the full moon! Sit by the pool at night with your favorite drink, switch off all the lights and enjoy the moonrise or set, awesome! On moonfree nights you can stargaze and explore the whole milkyway and don´t forget to make a wish with one of the many shooting stars. Go sightseeing in Granada with its famous Alhambra (50 minutes away) or visit the white washed villages of the Alpujarras (20 minutes away). Ask us about local handicrafts (pottery, weaving, leather weaving) and woodworks etc. Orgiva (5km away) offers everything you might need - there is a colourful weekly market (Thursdays), daily market, shops, cafes, bars, banks and ATMs, dentist, doctor, internet cafe etc. If you are looking for more activity then ask us about horse-riding, guided hiking trips as well as reiki, reflexology and different types of massages - all of these can be arranged. Maybe you are looking for Spanish lessons? This is your home from home, just lean back and unwind! We speak English, German and of course Spanish.

Orgiva

The lovely and unique villages of the Alpujarra are only 30 mins away, great for just strolling about hte village or some serious hikes into the Siera Nevada. Great also to have a look at some outstanding local handicrafts.
The Alhambra (Granada) for sure worth a visit, also Granada itself deserves a full day of roaming around.

The nearest beaches are from half an hour away. Salobreña, Almuñecar, La Herradura or Nerja to name only a few. Between La Herradura and Nerja are a couple of unspoilt and very private little coves, bring your picnic and enjoy the tranquility. Enquire about diving in the diving centres of Marina del Este or La Herradura.
Only 40 mins down on the coast between Motril and Salobreña we have a lovely golf course in a unique setting. You can golf with the sea in your back and the snow covered mountain peaks of the Siera Nevada in front of you. If the accompanying members of your family don´t feel like joining you, they can sunbathe on the beach, take a dip in the sea or make use of the great coffee shops and restaurants of the golf club.There are 2 more golf courses coming up, one in Salobreña and another one half way to Granada.
In winter you really have the choice! or you go down to the empty beaches, go sightseeing or shopping in Granada or go skiing in the Sierra Nevada OR do all in one day!!!
Sierra Nevada offers Spains most modern ski resort and is only 1 1/2 hrs away. It has more sun hours in winter than any other European ski resort. Altogether it offers up to 83km of very well prepared ski slopes, this, its ambience, easy access and very reasonable prices make it an outstanding destination.

“Absolutely fabulous.”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

For anyone looking for a holiday 'far from the madding crowd' then La Rueda is that destination. The cottage has ever thing you could need for a 2 week stay while the gardens are idyllic. There is a little pool and a barbeque area and even a hammock. The views from the property are outstanding. Stefan and Naomi are the perfect hosts with a wealth of knowledge of the surrounding area. We also appreciated the regular gifts of fresh fruit from their garden. All in all La Rueda is the perfect place to stay and we certainly intend to return.
