Client Reviews for Cortijo Las Gallinas


Thank you, we have enjoyed the views and had a lovely holiday.

Our 6th Vintage holiday. Lovely weather and villa in which to rest and relax. We visited the mountain villages of Trevelez, Capileira, Bubion and Pampaneira. Granada is a must see, go to Plaza de San Nicolas for a great view of the Alhambra and lunch. Orgiva on market day is a must. The highlight though was the trip to Pradollano and then the cable car and chair lift to the Pico Veleta summit. Many thanks to our hosts for a splendid holiday.

Lovely and relaxing, a perfect retreat to wind down from our busy lives back home. Enjoyed some meals out but just as much loved our simple meals back at the villa with a bottle of wine and some local chocolate to finish. Our visit to Sierra Nevada, a ride in the cable car and chair lift up to Veleta was a great day. Best place for a day out in the mountains was Pampaneira with its lovely setting and lots of places to eat. We will remember this holiday fondly.

We spent a lovely week in Las Gallinas. A very peaceful spot. 2 days in Granada where the Alhambra is stunning and we loved the tapas bars. We then hired bikes for a couple of days. The company delivered the road bikes which was superb. Challenging but very enjoyable.

We enjoyed a great week here after a week in Nerja on the coast. Personally I found the quiet mountain location more relaxing and refreshing. The centre of town is very appealing, the Moroccan restaurant serves wonderful healthy food and is frequented by a diverse and eclectic range of customers! Out of town we visited Lanjaron, walking through te covered street in the evening. A day trip to Granada is worth considering, the Alhambra the obvious destination. The city also offers the most accessible shopping. We really enjoyed a trip to the beach at Playa de los Convelos, it offers clear water and hundreds of fish which will eat bread under your nose. I will miss the fabulous mountain view that has been the backdrop to breakfast and afternoons around the pool.

After booking online we were surprised the villa was even better than we'd hoped for. We have loved it and will definitely return. Thank you to the owners for their hospitality. The surrounding villages are lovely, thank you and see you soon.

We have had a lovely holiday at Gallinas. The weather was great, warm and sunny most of the time, the pool was really nice and refreshing and the house is really great. So much privacy and silence, that's lovely. It was really a perfect stay for our honeymoon. Our tip is to visit Granada, an hour away by car but definitely worth it. The Albacin is great and the Alhambra beautiful.

We have had a wonderful week's rest and relaxation, just what was required. Visited Pampaneira, Bubion, Capileira, Granada and the coast at Salobrena and Almunecar - all worthwhile. After the Thursday morning market in Orgiva, we were very lazy for a day and a half, and the villa is ideal for that, quiet and secluded. The walk into Orgiva centre takes around 20 mins at a leisurely pace, and coming back isn't a problem after dark if you take a torch.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The villa is excellent and the local area has lots of lovely places to visit. We really enjoyed Granada, Lanjaron, Pampaneira and the exciting and dramatic drive to Trevelez. On the coast Salobrena was really lovely and a walk up to the castle is really good.

As visitors will discover, Orgiva itself has much to offer the open-minded and free-thinking individual.
