About Sheila & Jack Horner
We lived in the Bristol area of the UK, where we worked together before deciding to leave the 'rat race' and invest in a house in this beautiful part of Spain
Sheila & Jack Horner purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Sheila & Jack Horner chose Órgiva
We first came here because family were already living in Orgiva, and gradually fell in love with the area and decided to follow in their footsteps.

We had a wonderful 2 weeks in this villa. The villa itself is lovely with everything you need included, the pool is fantastic and ours kids (and us) loved being able to go into this whenever we wanted. Jack & Sheila were on hand for any questions that we had and made us feel so welcome. The added bonus of their dogs Missy and Holly was great! The dogs are so friendly and we all loved having them around. The location of the villa is stunning, surrounded by the Sierra Nevada mountains and very relaxing to be able to sit out in the garden. In terms of location, it is around 40 mins drive to the coastal towns of Costa Tropical and around 50 mins drive to Granada city. The mountain villages such as Bubion, Pampaniera etc are definitely worth visiting as well as Granada (Alhambra Palace etc). There is a good water park in Almunecar on the coast. Orgiva the main town is 5 mins away in the car and has nice restaurants, ice cream and supermarket.
Overall, I would highly recommend this Villa. Thanks Jack & Shiela for making us feel so welcome.
Visiting our daughter.
This is our third year staying in the Orgiva area. The accommodation was great and we were very comfortable and the hosts were very helpful. We were very lucky with the weather and this meant we were able to go up to the Sierra Nevada where the scenery is amazing. Had lovely food and found people very friendly. Would go back there again. Thank you Sheila and Jack 😊😊
Loved the property and it’s location.
We found the property spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We have been coming to this area for 25 years and this is probably the nicest place that we have stayed. The peace and quiet made this a very relaxing stay with the pool and garden an added bonus. Sheila and Jack were ideal hosts; nothing was too much trouble. We are already making plans for a further visit! Sheila and Jack even arranged for the sun to shine for 14 days!

Idyllic holiday home
We loved our stay at Sheila and Jack's holiday house, fantastic location surrounded by beautiful mountains, gorgeous garden and pool, and well equipped house with everything we needed for a comfortable holiday. Sheila and Jack were very helpful and friendly, we could not have asked for a better stay, and hope we can return next year.
Lovely relaxing Chrustmas
We had a lovely holiday in this idyllic spot with friendly and helpful hosts, Sheila and Jack. Nothing was too much trouble and we definitely hope to be back but for longer the next time. Thanks again.
Happy New Year to you both, looking forward to seeing you again sometime!
Our last stay in Orgiva was 9 years ago so we were a little apprehensive about returning . We needn't have been - Casa Pepe Rosa was perfect for us. A comfortable house in an open, well- maintained garden with stunning mountain views in all directions. I could have spent all week just sitting watching the ever- changing light ( with a glass or two of wine!) but we knew that the surrounding area was stunning so we travelled up into the mountains and to the coast to walk and swim. Orgiva is well situated to visit so much beautiful scenery in the area with lots of tracks near to the house to walk and run on. The pool, although quite small was just what we needed to cool off in the hot October, afternoon sun followed by drinks under the ancient olive tree.
We didn't feel the need to eat out much - just one lunch at Teteria Baraka in Orgiva to celebrate a special anniversary. We loved the Arabic food and the ambience in the restaurant. Maybe next year when we return we'll try others.
We enjoyed every minute of our week in Orgiva - Jack and Sheila made sure that everything ran smoothly from booking to leaving with lots of helpful information.
Looking back at our holiday will get us through the miserable British winter.
Orgiva is the capital of the western Alpujarras, just 3/4 hour from the city of Granada. The beaches of Motril, Salobrena etc are approx. 35 minutes drive. The area is one of the last remaining regions where they serve free tapas with a drink!
