We were fortunate to be able to spend two nights at the Organic Patch and meet two members of this unique and engaging family. Octavio and Uncle Eduardo took wonderful care of us and were so helpful and fun. They gave us sightseeing advice, told us stories about the region and its history, and made us feel at home. They served us a delightful breakfast, which included organic foods and even some foods grown in their own garden. Everything was fresh and delicious. The small town where the inn is located is close to Granada and we were able to reach the city easily by bus. We hope to meet the rest of the family on our next trip to Spain!

Bon Voyage!

Nous sommes si heureux d'avoir fait connaissance avec Filomena et Octavio. Nous n'aurions pas pu trouver mieux que cette grande et belle "auberge" chaleureuse et pleine de vie. Filomena, Octavio et leurs petits enfants plein les bras sont doués d'une grande hospitalité. Les petits déjeûners sur la terrasse de leur beau jardin, étaient un magnifique moment de détente et d'échanges multiples. Avec l'amour et les connaissances de leur région, Ils eurent plaisir à nous conseiller dans nos projets de promenades et d'exploration touristiques de Granada et de ses alentours. Les délicieuses recettes servis à ce moment matinal, avec des fruits et légumes de la saison, parfois de la récolte personnelle du potager, et les petits produits laitiers faits maison étaient tous entièrement biologique, Humm ! Nos enfants ont su aussi y trouver leur bon compte. Le matin de très bonne heure ils sautaient littéralement du lit pour profiter et explorer chaque recoin du beau jardin. Raquette en main ils découvrir pour la première fois les joies du tennis. Nous gardons dans nos coeurs des souvenirs intenses de notre voyage á Granada, c'est en grande partie grâce á Filomena et Octavio. Nous aimerions beaucoup revenir

Innkeeper Response
With Lorenzo, Catherine, Esther and twins Massimo and Luis really enjoyed it! Believe that for them it was a great experience, seeing that Lorenzo went down to breakfast singing, and the children were the first to go down and get out to the garden to play fronton, to rock on the swing or to run around the garden with various games of my children. They are nice people, lovers of culture and nature. We talked a bit of our artistic tastes and an evening with Lorenzo's mother (it is a great woman), there was talk of birds, and she was happy because in the Alpujarra, in the silence of the evening was able to listen once again as when she was little and lived in the canton of Ticino, the wonderful song of the nightingale . The only flaw is that they have too little time .... Thank you very much, hope to see you soon Mena, Octavio & Rosa and Pablo. Con Lorenzo, Catherine, Esther e i gemellini Massimo e Luis siamo stati davvero bene!!!Credo che anche per loro è stata una bella esperienza, visto che Lorenzo scendeva a fare colazione canticchiando, e i bambini erano i primi a scendere e a uscire fuori al giardino per giocare a fronton, per dondolarsi sull'altalena o per scorrazzare in tutto il giardino con i vari giochi dei miei figli. Sono persone simpatiche, amanti della cultura e della natura. Abbiamo parlato un po' dei nostri gusti artistici e con la madre di Lorenzo, che senza togliere niente al resto della famiglia è una grande donna, si è parlato di uccelli, e lei era contentissima perché all'Alpujarra, di sera nel silenzio assoluto è riuscita ad ascoltare ancora una volta come quando era piccola e viveva nel canton Ticino , il fantastico canto dell'usignolo (nightigale) . L'unica pecca è che sono stati troppo poco tempo.... Grazie mille, speriamo di vederci al più presto Mena, Octavio & Rosa e Pablo

A lovely long weekend in Granada

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few days in January and had a wonderful time. Octavio and Filomena were such kind and welcoming hosts. The breakfast was delicious, and our room (the tower room) was very comfortable and had beautiful views of the mountains and sunrises/sunsets. Octavio and Filomena were also very helpful in suggesting a great route for hiking in the Sierra Nevada, and we enjoyed it so much. We would both recommend this b&b to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing, and fun-filled time near Granada. -Amy and Matt, Ohio, Jan 2014

Innkeeper Response
Hello Amy, hello Matt, it was a real pleasure to have you in our home! We are glad that you were happy with everything, you have enjoyed the breakfast, the room, but especially that you enjoyed the tranquility of the place, since it is difficult to meet in Madrid situations like this. At the same time you have been able to use all the available time doing a little hiking in the Sierra Nevada and tourism in Granada. For our part, we appreciated your friendly and discreet company!! Thank you very much and hope to meet again either here or anywhere else. Filomena

Just beautiful

I had such a nice time staying at Filomena's and Ocavio's in September. The house and garden are beautiful and the hosts are wonderful people: kind and helpful and interested in everything, so they gave me a lot of tipps on what to do and what to see, where to go and where to eat in Granada and the area. I would recommend going there for everybody who is looking for a quiet place to stay and who likes to have contact with some lovely locals. Thanks a lot for your hospitality, Mena and Octavio!

Innkeeper Response
Hello Klaus, thank you for your nice words, we are glad that you were comfortable with us and that you liked our B & B. We too had a great time in your company, we only regret that you have not had the time to visit and see some of the beauties of the place, but as you say will be for next time! Muchas Gracias and a presto!! Filomena y Octavio

Wonderful! Meraviglioso! Super!

Staying at "The Organic Patch" was a really unforgettable experience !! Not only because of the wonderful villa and the cute room in which we slept (and from which we had an amazing view!!), but especially because of the kindness of the entire family! It was great to get to know such interesting persons and such beautiful little children! Apart from that, we enjoyed the best breakfast ever ! :-) Stare all'Organic Patch è stata un'esperienza indimenticabile!! Non solo per la bellissima villa e la stanzetta carina in cui abbiamo dormito (e dalla quale c'è una vista proprio meravigliosa!), ma soprattutto a causa della gentilezza di questa famiglia meravigliosa! È stato bellissimo conoscere delle persone così interessanti e dei bambini così splendidi! A parte questo abbiamo goduto la miglior colazione che ci sia ! :-) Ein paar Tage im "Organic Patch" zu verbringen war eine unvergessliche Erfahrung!! Nicht nur aufgrund der wunderschönen Villa und des herzigen Zimmers, in dem wir geschlafen haben (und von dem aus wir eine herrliche Aussicht hatten), sondern vor allem wegen dieser wunderbaren Familie! Es war sehr schön, solch interessante Menschen und so liebe Kinder kennen zu lernen! Außerdem haben wir das allerbeste Frühstück genossen, das es überhaupt gibt! :-)

Organic Patch -- A Catchy Name & Great Place to Stay

4.6 on June 26, 2013

Stay here if you want to be adopted by a wonderful little family with lots of knowledge about the things to do and places to go in Granada and the Sierra Nevada. Octavio & Filomena were great hosts, making us feel right at home from the very beginning. We felt as if we had just joined the family for a long weekend. Home-made foods right from their garden made the breakfasts delightful. Octavio is a font of knowledge about the city and also knows a great deal about the flora and fauna in the surrounding countryside as well. He can even tell you where to park for free when going to the Alhambra! You will not regret meeting Octavio & Filomena -- and Rosa & Pablo (their most recent addition!) and enjoying their hospitality as we did. --Don & Inge (stayed 4 nights in May-June, 2013)

Innkeeper Response
Hi Don, hi Inge, Thank you very much from the heart,was a real pleasure. We hope to see again and we wish to reach your age with such vitality and desire of knowledge!!!Gracias

Our stay in the Organic Patch

4.6 on April 21, 2013

What a great place to stay ! Filomena and Octavio are very generous and helpful hosts. Breakfasts are just wonderful. It was a real pleasure to spend few days in this typical house very appropriate for having rest after long days touring. Furthermore, Octavio revealed to be a very good guide in the Alpujarras. What a wonderful experience ! Thank you Filomena, Octavio and Rosa for your hospitality.

Innkeeper Response
Hola Danielle, ha sido un placer conocer gente así amable como vosotros!!!!La visita en la Alpujarras también por Octavio ha sido una experiencia inolvidable porque nunca había ido con los cerezos en flor !!!!Un espectáculo único en buena compañía!!!! Hasta pronto y un beso muy grande a ti y a Leyla!!!! Muchas gracias Mena Octa y familia!!!!

Un sejour fantastique a un prix imbattable.

Je reviens d'un sejour de 4 jours à Grenade avec mes enfants. Nous avons choisi de nous loger à Organic Patch pour que les enfants puissent profiter de plus d'espace que dans un hotel en ville. Une trés bonne dècision! La maison, de type andalou, est trés spacieuse et bénéficie aussi d'un immense jardin et d'un patio de colonnes, lieu idéal pour déejeuner en hiver et pour se rafraichir en été. Elle ne se trouve qu'a huit minutes en voiture de Grenade, donc très proche; et la vue depuis la chambre de la Tour sur Sierra Neveda est très belle. En plus de l'espace, nous avons adoré le petit déjeuner bio offert tous les jours avec entre autre, jus d'orange fraichement pressé et yahourt fait maison. Nous avons même eu la chance de pouvoir dîner sur place un menu improvisé avec les légumes du jardin. Quand Naplles et Grenade cuisinent ensemble, cela ne peut être qu'un vrai régal! Octa et Mena sont d'excellents hotes. Tres aimables, serviables et bons connaisseurs de la région, ils ont pu nous conseiller des randonnées dans les environs, ainsi que des lieux a visiter en ville ou encore comment éviter le traffic ou les frais de parking. Nous y retournerons sans hesitation.
