Personally, i wouldn´t class Orgiva as the "real" Spain. It is heavily touristy, with year round tourism, (not helped by Chris Stewarts 3 books based around there), unlike the cheaper "real" spain you are thinking of.i.e. all the villages/towns not heavily populated with brits/tourists, that most of us havenr even heard of! I have more english friends who live in/around Orgiva, than i do where I live now!
