Naturaleza, Desconexion y Paz.
Buscamos este alojamiento para desconectar de la ciudad y pasar unos dias traquilos en familia; y sin duda ha superado nuestras espectativas. Entorno precioso en mitad de la nada, donde se respira paz y tranquilidad.
La casa con el tamaño perfecto dispone de todas las comodidades, equipada con todo tipo de mobiliario para los niños : cuna de viaje, trona, barrera de cama... Sus propietarios son encantadores, detallistas ( pusieron chocolatinas y peluche en la camita de mi hijo mayor y peluche en la cuna para el pequeño, todas las mañanas nos limpiaban la piscina y nos dejaron la despensa llena para que cogiesemos lo que quisieramos ) y muy amables ( nos dejaron ir a ver una tarde todos los animales que crian en su granja particular, gallinas, conejos, cabras y ovejas y mi hijo disfruto muchisimo)
Han sido 4 dias maravillosos! Repetiremos seguro!
Thank you for your kind words it was a pleasure meet you. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

In all honesty, we did not do a thing for ten glorious days. We had arrived with good intentions, a list of places to visit and sports equipment for hiking, then left without using any of them!
Instead we totally switched off from the outside world and spent our days relaxing, swimming, talking, enjoying the wildlife, studying the amazing night skies, playing a variety of boardgames, dipping in the pool, reading, drinking and feasting in the shade of the pergola, and departed feeling happy and contended.
The villa itself is equipped with everything (and I really do mean everything) that you will need. It is also light, airy and very clean and comfortable. The garden and pool areas are extremely well looked after and attract some beautiful birds, butterflies, bees and insects, non of which we ever found in the house.
And then there are the hosts, Louise and Nigel, who are both discreet and attentive at the same time. They take a great pride in their little oasis of calm and will want you to enjoy it as much as they evidently do. Ask them for suggestions of where to visit, what to do, best bars/restaurants etc in the local area. They told us of many - but due to our delight in hiding from the outside world - we did not visit any in the end and only went out to stock up on provisions!
As other reviewers have commented, the track on the very last part to the villa is literally that - a track. The first time you drive it take it slowly and steadily. This is a rural part of Spain. If it was a main road running past the villa, it would lose all of it's peace and tranquility.
If our circumstances allow, we will be returning next year. We have never holidayed in the same place twice before, so that is as high a recommendation as any!
Thank you Louise and Nigel for making our ten days so enjoyable. It has been challenging readjusting back to the pace of Madrid!
Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to welcoming you back.
A piece of paradise perfect place and hots
We spent a beautiful week in this lovely house el cortijo. Everything is just perfect and great including the warm welcome from Louise and Nigel. A place in nature where you can recharge your batteries and just relax and enjoy the surroundings. The cottage is very spacious and you'll find everything you need, the pool is big and just perfect for the hot days there. We highly recommend this little Paradise el cortijo for all who are looking for nature, tranquility and just want to have a great vacation. With the car you can visit the nice typical Andalusien villages and taste the good local food. We will sure come back.
Perfektes Ferienhaus inmitten der wunderschönen Natur in den Bergen. Wir empfehlen dieses tolle Haus allen die Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit suchen, nichts als wunderschönen Natur und Ruhe umgeben el cortijo, das Haus ist sehr geräumig mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Der Pool ist gross und die Aussicht einfach überwältigend. Louise und Nigel sind wunderbare Gastgeber und lassen keine Wünsche offen. Die Umgebung kann mit dem Auto erkundet werden die schönen typischen andalusischen Dörfer laden zum verweilen ein. Wir werden sicher wieder diese Oase der Ruhe besuchen.
Thank you Louise and Nigel

Thank You, was really nice to meet you both.
The property is in a lovely setting in a valley looking up to the village of Castaras.
The property has accommodation for 4, a double room and a twin room. The outside pool is maintained daily and is clean and big enough to swim in. It is a spacious house with plenty of room to cook and relax. We thought the location was fantastic. The property is situated in a remote location but within 10 minutes drive of the main road to Castaras and other villages. The track leading down to the house is steep and bendy but manageable with ease if taken steadily.
Nigel and Louise were perfect hosts and were always available to offer advice but never intrusive.
All in all we had a great time at this location and would recommend it to others looking for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle.
Thank you for your kind words, they certainly encourage future guests to visit.
High and happy
A lovely,spacious cortijo with everything for ease and comfort. It has a very private and attractive garden and a beautiful pool.We had a brilliant 2 weeks with perfect weather and spent our time by the pool,and walking around the high and magical landscape. We only went out to go to the shops for provisions. Evenings we spent making barbeques, drinking lots of the local wine and star gazing. This is exactly how we like to spend our time on holiday.. Our hosts,Nigel and Louise were great. We would see them early in the day, for pool cleaning, and much warm and humourous conversation, after which they entirely respected our privacy. It was really good to have them close by, as it is an isolated place,,so if anything went wrong we could call on them. We had to do this once when we got lost up in the hills and I fell down a steep slope, and my wife put her hand in a wasps nest! We were promptly rescued and told that we weren't allowed out tomorrow! This was all highly entertaining. We also collectively walked up the mountain and watched the lunar eclipse together. That was magic!
The location is beautiful, a valley surrounded on all sides by craggy rock and bush with paths climbing through and across the landscape, and really high with views across to Sierra Nevada. Walking up and out from the cortijo is very steep for 15 minutes, after which it gets easier. Driving up or down again is challenging. Not advisable at night!
If you like nature,a bit of the wild, peace, beauty and a bit of keep fit activity, this is a perfect place to stay!
Thank you for your kind and amusing review. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and we look forward to seeing you again for the predicted meteor shower next August !
