We have a detached 3 bedroom house with swimming pool, fast (8mb) reliable internet connection, organic vegetable garden, fruit orchard and beautiful views of the Sierra Lujar mountains.
It’s in a small rural village called Tijola, with views of the Sierra Nevada and Sierra Lujar mountains. The village is on a quiet road 1 mile (5 min drive) from Orgiva, the main town of the Alpujarra region, Orgiva has organic shops, a weekly market, cafes, supermarkets etc. Orgiva has a conscious, multi-cultural community, so you can get by in a lot of shops and cafes in English.
The Alpujarra region lies between the Sierra Nevada and Sierra Lujar mountains with the south coast and Granada both being around 45 mins away. You can spend time walking in the snow up in the mountains in mid winter or walking along the beach where it can be quite warm, most days around 20 degrees. We will probably stop planting the veg garden as we are going away but if you like the idea you could plant veggies (keeping it organic please) for the time you are there.
In return we'd like a nice house in a quiet area in Sussex with good central heating & garden, preferably detached. Our main areas of interest are those within 20 miles radius to Crowborough, including Lewes.
