We had a fantastic stay here - the area is beautiful, very rustic and rural farmhouse overlooking superb mountains. The farmhouse had everything we needed, especially the pool to cool off in the afternoons. The town of Orgiva is an uphill walk away but worth the walk for the many bars and very good restaurants. Went to a Flamenco show in town which was lovely and of course very Spanish! Visited the mountain villlages of Capileira, Pampaneira, Trevelez and Torvizcon, all very traditional and not too touristy. We visited the other side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range where the ski village is, going on the toboggan run, the cable cars and chairlifts, and its much cooler up there if you fancy doing a bit of walking, especially in August. My son loved the road up to the ski village as they were testing cars, and he saw a Bugatti Chiron amongst other cars. We loved the area so much and would love to return when its a bit cooler to do some of the numerous walks in the area. Thankyou Tanya - I am sure we will return, and would highly recommend!
Cortijo Tanya is a beautiful, tranquil, captivating retreat where you can 'escape' and thoroughly relax. The surrounding area is amazing; pretty white villages scattered over the nearby hills and mountains where you can observe the locals going about their daily routine while enjoying a cold beer and some tapas. The cycling climbs and the walks are challenging but breathtaking and the food is delicious and the beer is thirst-quenching and refreshing. We can't wait to return.
