More property details

Cortijo Almagreras, where we have lived for 25 years, is a fully accredited organic olive farm, and much more. Situated in Cerro Negro near the town of Orgiva, in La Alpujarra region of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Southern Spain, the property is terraced on the side of a hill (cerro) and has around 200 mature olive trees, some of which are several hundred years old. There are mixed fruit orchards (name a tree!) and various gardens, vegetable and flower beds, plants and shrubs. The property is just over 2.5 hectares.

There are two houses, the main house and a casita (small house). The main house is a traditional Alpujarran style farmhouse, with three double bedrooms, a bathroom, entrance hall, and living room/kitchen, with a covered terrace and open terraces with magnificent mountain views. The casita has a bedroom/living room, kitchen and bathroom, and a front terrace with stunning views.

There is a large pagoda style yoga/dance floor (8m x 8m i.e. 64m2 ) and an 'ecopool' beside the main house. The farm is completely off-grid and solar powered. There are conventional flush toilets and compost toilets. The water system is fantastic. Dating from the time of the Moors (from North Africa) this system has been in place for a thousand years and still works in the same way, with water coming from the high mountains via a system of channels around the mountains. We have two enormous open storage pools (albercas) and also a drip feed system to the gardens and fruit trees. The drinking water comes from a spring that is shared between seven properties; it is stored in drinking water tanks and plumbed directly into both houses. The spring comes from a source in a watermine above the property, giving fresh pure water.The views from the farm are wonderful and at night there is no light pollution, a rare and precious thing in these times. The farm is just 6km from Orgiva, the local m arket town; the last 1km is on a private dirt road. A four-wheel-drive vehicle, or at least a vehicle with good ground clearance, is recommended for this amazing route in.
