Casa Santa Filomena
Welcome to Orgiva, and Casa Santa Filomena. Our three self-catering apartments are ideally located for you to enjoy your holiday in the Alpujarra. From our lovely garden and poolside terrace you can enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and be only a few minutes, gentle walk, from the centre of Orgiva. The area offers a wide variety of holiday activities from walking, cycling and climbing to painting, bird watching or just relaxing by our pool.
Orgiva is a bustling market town nestling between two mountain ranges; the Sierra Nevada to the North, and the Sierra De La Contraviesa to the South. Orgiva is the provincial capital of the western Alpujarra, offering a wide variety of bars, restaurants, shops and banks. For those wishing to attend religious services, Orgiva has a striking baroque Church.
The surrounding region offers, for those who do not wish to just relax, the added attraction of wonderful mountain walks, bird watching, and an endless array of wild flowers to paint on canvas. World class rock climbing, horse riding, paragliding, and both road and mountainbiking are also available for the more energetic visitors. There is a tourist office in town which is well worth a visit for guests seeking further information on activities.
Within easy reach of Orgiva are the many white washed Berber villages of La Alpujarra, the Mediterranean coast and Granada. This historic city lies to our North, offering visitors the splendour of the Alhambra Palaces, the old Arab and Jewish quarters, the Cathedral, and many other historic sites of interest. Granada will also satisfy those visitors who enjoy shopping, or just letting the world go by sitting at one of the many street cafes.
The region also offers the most southerly Winter skiing in mainland Europe. So, you can ski in the morning, then swim in the Mediterranean in the afternoon and finish a perfect day by dining beside the sea in one of the many beach restaurants.
We do hope that you enjoy our site, and decide to holiday with us.
