El Olivo is a mile and a half from the centre of Órgiva and is situated in serene, picturesque countryside amidst orange and olive groves, with panoramic mountain views. The tall hedge provides complete privacy round the pool and in the large garden. This is a perfect place for a peaceful holiday.
There are three bedrooms (two with a double bed, the third bedroom with two single beds), a living room, a bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and a washing machine. Outside, there is also a huge sun terrace with panoramic views of the moutains.
A cot and a high chair are available if required. The filtered pool
12m x 5m is for the exclusive use of guests.
The large enclosed garden, with its well-kept, English-style bouncy lawn, surrounded by a tall hedge, and - in parts - by a wall, allows for entirely private sunbathing, and has ample, comfortable seating: a double rocking chair, six sun loungers, and a table for six for al fresco dining by the barbecue, built in the traditional style.
As the house and garden are on one level only, this house can be recommended for those who find walking difficult, and it provides a safe environment for children, as long as they are supervised at all times around the pool area. Child minding can also be provided.
The sun terrace is the only part of the house that requires walking up the stairs, but it can be kept locked for the safety of children.
El Olivo is a very comfortable modern villa, built in contemporary style, and with all the creature comforts you would expect, yet with attractive architectural details such as a tiled roof, wooden window shutters, Moorish style arches, wooden beams or a stain glass window.
The fully fitted kitchen is completely equipped: big stainless-steel fridge-freezer, dishwasher, gas oven with hob, microwave, dishwasher and a washing machine. There is a good range of the necessary utensils, as well as an electric kettle and a coffee maker.The bathroom, tastefully tiled in a white and green mosaic tiles, has a bath as well as a shower.
The living room has a couple of large, comfortable sofas, as well as a dinner table and chairs. The TV receives both Spanish channels and satellite English language TV. There is a DVD player, a CD player and a broadband Internet connection.
Thanks to wooden shutters and the thick walls, the bedrooms feel pleasantly cool most of the time, but fan heaters are available if required.
If needed, baby-sitting can be arranged.
