The Garden

The Orgiva Tea Garden has evolved since 2004, from a barren patch of land with waist high weeds into a beautiful tranquil garden split over three very different levels and covering about 5000 sq m.

The philosophy with regards to the planting has been to concentrate mainly on Mediterranean plants with help from shade-providing trees and also to take into account our animals as many have free range over the whole garden.

English Teas, refreshments, homemade sandwiches, soups and delicious cakes (ice cream in the summer) are available plus our shop sells local crafts and fresh produce.

And of course there is a selection of plants for sale in the garden nursery section. With a quiz and games for the children, the menagerie of animals as well, the garden can be enjoyed by the whole family and by all ages.


El Jardín

Durante los últimos 12 años, OTG se ha convertido de un terreno árido lleno de maleza en un jardín bello y tranquilo con una superficie de 5000 m² que se extiende en 3 bancales.

Nuestra filosofía de poblar el jardín ha sido principalmente la plantación de flora mediterránea y arboles para proporcionar sombra, además de considerar nuestros animales, ya que muchos son de granja, pero criados en libertad por todo el jardín.

Ofrecemos té inglés e infusiones variadas, bocadillos caseros, sopas y deliciosas tartas y helados en verano.En nuestra tienda vendemos artesanía local y productos frescos y caseros.Disponemos tambien de un vivero con una amplia variedad de plantas.

Organizamos juegos infantiles, concursos y con la variedad de animales, el jardín es un lugar de ocio creado para todas las edades y disfrutar en familia.
