Los Olivillos Organic Smallholding, Spain
By Hollie Wicks

Los Olivillos is a quiet smallholding situated in a Berber village in the Alpujarra. The two studios are fitted with their own terrace and garden with beautiful panoramic views. Both apartments share a growing garden filled with fruit trees, aromatic shrubs and cooking herbs, as well as yummy organic fruit and vegetables which they kindly share with their visitors.

This holiday is filled with pure relaxation and good food (what more could you ask for?) Both of the apartments come with big gardens for you to lay back in your hammock with a ice cold drink and relax in. There’s even a splash pool area surrounded by sun loungers, more hammocks and reclining wooden arm chairs.

If you want to do some exploring from the house you can take the ancient local paths into the valleys alongside the rivers and mountains. There are many villages within walking distance, each offering their local produce as well as good terraces for yummy tapas with a view.

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
