Green jewel of a garden.
My husband and I stayed at this property on a last minute impulse, and we were not disappointed. The weather was gorgeous and the accommodation charming and well-appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the good-sized swimming pool and the verdant, 'secret' garden with its stunning views of the Alpujarras and gorgeous, ancient doors! We walked into Orgiva every night to eat and lazed by the pool in the day: perfect. I thoroughly recommend this property if you want tranquillity and relaxation.
This was my second stay at Casa Rosada. The property is in a rural setting on the outskirts of town.
The beautiful garden is totally secluded with a decent size pool to swim in.
The inside of the house is rustic and charming, very well equiped, with all the facilities that we needed during our stay. The master bedroom is really quaint with steps leading up to the double bed.
Orgiva is a ten minute stroll away or you can park for free in the car park near the petrol station. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and tapas bars and a lively market on a Thursday. Here, you will find various stalls as well as a good selection of local produce.
Orgiva is well located as a base to visit the villages of Lanjaron, Bubion, Campanernia, Pampernia (a must visit) and Granada. The scenery along the way is breath taking!
After three days of village hopping we didn't venture out much and just relaxed and enjoyed the tranquility of the garden.
The whole booking process was smooth. Anda was great during the whole process and sent detailed directions and contact details prior to our arrival.
Carmen our meet and greet person was lovely and helpful during our stay.
Fab relaxing holiday.
Charming cottage in gorgeous walled gardens
We have just stayed in Casa Rosada - with lovely, swimmable weather in early October! Casa Rosada is the perfect place to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the unspolit Spanish countryside, while being only a few minutes' walk into town, and if you prefer to drive, there is a private car park right next to the house.
We loved the private pool with mountain view, surrounded by flowers, and the freedom to be completely un-overlooked - also while swimming. The interior of the house is thoughtfully and tastefully equipped with everything we needed. The house is very peaceful and secure for children and it was easy to keep an eye on my 7-year old daughter while she played.
When we finally did tear ourselves away from the poolside, Orgiva has many bars and restaurants within a short stroll, and there are interesting villages nearby for day trips, such as Pampaneira and Bubion. Lovely beaches are 30 minutes away, and the stunning, historic Granada an hour door-to-door.
Casa Rosada in an absolute gem, perfect for restorative break; only wish we could have stayed longer. But we will certainly return!
A very relaxing place
The property provided a very relaxing holiday. It is secluded and shady whilst still offering plenty of opportunity to sunbathe. Clean and reasonably well stocked, do take your own kitchen towels. The showers were disappointing, powerful but cheap fittings so rarely stayed still sending water everywhere and the one by the twin room is hand held only! The mountains are stunning and hide some very pretty villages to drive out to. The driveway is not for the cautious driver, whilst wide enough it is more like a rocky mountain path and would recommend a 4x4. We felt it as also too dusty and dark to make a pleasant walk to the village for dinner so ended up driving.
Shower heads: we have already changed them. They were fine the week before your holiday - you only had to ask, and Carmen would have gladly changed them - and added more tea towels! As for 'rocks'... I think you are referring to the gravel on the drive, which, incidentally is a rew metres long gentle incline. No-one has ever mentioned finding it strange to drive on before, let alone need a 4x4...
The house is amazing and more than lived up to expectations. Quiet. Beautiful garden and pool. Kitchen fully equipped. Arrangements smooth and helpful. Totally recommend for a chill out retreat. We will be back for sure.
Quirky & Unusual
Orgiva is a beautiful town with fantastic views of the hills and mountains. The drive (½ km) up to the property through a narrow winding single dirt track from Orgiva is an interesting experience. A dusty journey for walkers and pushing a buggy may prove difficult as the track is very poor with loose stones. It was very dark at night (I did not notice any lighting but I would not walk it at night either) and really more suited to the sure footed. The ‘ford’ was flowing on a couple of occasions but only an inch or two deep max, so to drive through was no problem at all although a little steep both on the way in and out but access might be tricky for sports or low vehicles.
The lounge, dining room and garden furniture all appeared very tired and worn and in need of replacement. With limited hanging space and no drawers at all in the master bedroom we did not unpack but lived from our cases for our 2 weeks. Although the 2nd bedroom did have a wardrobe and a very small bedside cabinet with 3 very shallow drawers it was just not practical to use the wardrobe in one room a sleep in another.
The concrete steps, some quite high, (including those in the adjoining narrow area between the master bedroom and the property) are not child friendly at all or for anyone unsteady on their feet, particularly in the dark or when using the bathrooms at night.
The garden and pool area are indeed very pretty but spoilt due to overgrown trees which limit the amount of sunshine to the pool, making it uncomfortably cold and reduce the available light to the property, making it appear somewhat gloomy when entering. If it is a villa with light airy rooms you seek then this property is not for you.
We only used the pool and BBQ once and the lack of parking space in Orgiva caused us to drive through it mostly heading for either the mountains or the beach in both cases soaking up the summer sunshine until well into the evening.
Overall we were a little dissapointed with the property but Orgiva the mountains and the beautiful resort of Almunecar I would thoroughly recommend to all.
Hi Brian and Jenny, you will be pleased to know that we now have a super brand-new asphalted road to Casa Rosada! We are thrilled! So easy to drive and the 10 minute walk to town is now a pleasure! Thank you local council! :)
I would add that most people think that the lovely greenery we are blessed with is a bonus, as you can sunbathe if you like or loll about in the shade - the choice is yours!
