About Us

Sunny Casita terrace at Cortijo de la Luz in southern Spain

After many years of family holidays and weekend breaks in various areas of Spain we always knew that one day we should come and settle here. Andalucía has always been our favourite part of the country so that’s where we started looking. Although we are beach fans we decided we would prefer somewhere not too far from the coast but with less hustle and bustle. On our first visit to Orgiva in the Alpujarras Mountains we instantly knew this was the place for us.

That was in March 2008. We were both working full time in England as a General Manager and an Office Manager, in different companies. It took two visits for us to find the property we wanted and within five months we moved in to our little piece of paradise.

It was hard leaving family and friends but they have a readymade holiday place just a couple of hours away for them to visit whenever they like.

We love the lifestyle change we have made and hope that you will want to come and visit this beautiful part of Spain. We look forward to meeting you.


Best wishes
