Embrace the spring warmth of the mountain air, Spain: Orgiva Andalucia, sleeps six from £898 for a week.

It is hard to imagine a more ideal setting from which to inhale the mountain scenery of Southern Spain’s Alpujarras, than Vintage Travel’s appropriately named Casa Pura. Its interior is charmingly rustic (white walls and exposed wooden beams), but what makes this villa even more special is its fantastic outdoor kitchen which takes alfresco cooking to another level. Fully equipped, it’s housed within a wide covered terrace and conveniently positioned alongside the pool. Surrounding this, a pretty garden of colourful flowerbeds and lawns, interspersed with mature shrubs, palm and olive trees, completes the enticing spring scene.
