What Past Guests Are Saying
Leeds, United Kingdom
We stayed in Jasmine Cottage in March 2013, Tina has just finished altering the property and it was immaculate. Although it was a bit cold for the time of year, we enjoyed some sunny days and found the cottage an ideal base for walking, the Gr-7 path is within walking distance. Though its a fair walk into town there are a few nice bars along the way. There is a bus stop outside the cottage too. The cottage has a well stocked kitchen, plenty of books and literature on things to do and walks, and two comfortable bedrooms.
The gardens are idyllic, and with the pool finished this is a great place to either get away from it all, or to use as a base for exploring the area. Tina is a very welcoming host and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable, including the loan of her only heater!
Excellent location with wonderful views. Close to Orgiva and local bars and restaurant. Tranquil setting in beautiful gardens. We were made very welcome and totally at ease by the owner who, although lives on site, was unobtrusive. This is a perfect place for exploring Las alpujarras.

An excellent holiday
A delightful cottage, with everything you could want, in a most beautiful area. The patio was completely private with views over olive and orange trees to the mountains beyond. The garden and pool were fabulous and an ideal place to relax (not that we relaxed much, with so much in the area to see and do). We visited the white villages of the alpujarras, the alhambra in Granada and also Cordoba (overnight stay) and spent many a happy hour walking in the countryside, enjoying the glorious scenery and flowers. Tina was so kind and friendly and always ready to share her great knowledge of the area. We would thoroughly recommend Jasmine Cottage for a wonderful holiday.

James and Anthea were super guests and I was more than happy to provide them with any information they requsted. They obviously loved the area and it was a joy to chat with them about the various places they visited. I told them "come back anytime!", and I hope they visit the area again soon.
Probably the most enjoyable holiday we have had
We spent a wonderful 3 weeks at Jasmine Cottage which is a casita in the grounds of Buenavista where Tina, our host lives. There are beautiful gardens and a pool of which we had exclusive use. Tina is tremendous - she is there if you need her, but very respectful of your privacy. We got on so well with her that we spent several evenings together either in Jasmine Cottage, or in her home or visiting the local tapas bar just down the hill, but all at our behest.
Jasmine Cottage is well- appointed and cosy and there is plenty of space for two.
Orgiva, the nearest town is about 5 minutes drive, or if you feel fit enough about 30 minutes walk - down is ok, but the hill is challenging on the way home after a few glasses! It is a working town with an excellent market and has not become too touristy. Most people are not fluent English speakers but that helps you develop your Spanish and they are very welcoming and helpful.
The alpujarras are beautiful and there are several pueblos blanca (white villages) in easy driving distance.
For a longer day (or 2)Granada is a wonderful experience and there is a fantastic rural drive down through the mountains to the coast.
We couldn't fault our stay and were fortunate to have brilliant sunny and warm weather for the duration of our stay. You can be as relaxed and unadventurous as you wish staying 'at home'or fill your days with great trips.
Finally, Tina deserves a further mention - the perfect hostess, helpful, friendly and so welcoming. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.
