Additional Location Information

Orgiva is a bustling market town with good restaurants; supermarkets; ATMs; a Medical Centre with full accident and emergency services. Despite having all modern facilities the area can still be described as "real Spain". Orgiva dates back several thousand years and was mentioned in Ptolemy as the Greek colony of Exoche. During the Nasrid dynasty it was known as Albastch, which meant flat and then for several centuries it was known as Albacete de Orgiva. In 1492 Boabdil, the deposed King of Granada retreated here under the decree of Ferdinand and Isabella, but during the Moorish uprising the town was the scene of hard-fought battles with the Torre de la Casa Palacio de los Condes de Sastago defending the town. This ancient building was restored some years ago and it is now the Ayuntamiento/Town Hall. The twin towered church of Nuestra Senora de la Expiracion was built in the 16th Century. Above the town, on the site of a Visigoth forthress, is the San Sebastion Hermitage, built in honor of the patron saint of Orgiva in 1589. It was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War, but was re-built in 1951, preserving the original plaster altarpiece in tact. On the edge of the village is the entrance to the Route of the 100 year old Olives, with their ancient twisted trunks. On the outskirts of the village lie the ruins of El Catillejo complete with its well and old wall as testimoy to a past that dates back to the 11th Century.
After the fall of Granada many of itscitizens fled south over the Sierra Nevada mountains and for a time lived in caves before establishing a network of villages which is now called Las Aplujarras. Las Alpujarras is a magical place of natural beauty. An area of dramatic landscapes and enchanting valleys, scattered with whitewashed villages which still maintain their ancient customs and traditions. The evidence of Spain's Moorish past is truly to be found in this area. A selection of walking maps are available to guests.
Orgiva is home to a number of bridge players and if you enjoy a game of Bridge it can easily be arranged. Tina, the owner of the property lives on site and would be happy to provide local information whenever requested.
There is a bus service to Lanjaron, Granada, Motril, Salobrena and Malaga and the bus to all of these towns stops on the road outside the property.
Parking is within the grounds of Jasmin Cottage, is secure and is close to the cottage.
