The cortijo is set in a beautiful situation within the finca of 20 hecatares which ensures privacy and tranquility.

It has been renovated with loving care using traditional materials; the windows, thick shutters

and doors were made by our local carpenter with seasoned chestnut wood

In the spacious double height sitting room there are lots of books, DVDs and comfy chairs.

Doors lead on to the porch and terrace with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

Airy and cool in the heat of the summer, wonderfully atmospheric and warm in the autumn and winter.

The kitchen is well equipped and features a marvellous old stone work table, very inspirational for imaginative cooks.

There are attractive ceramics and tableware for special meals.


The dining room leads off the kitchen; there is a huge 3.30 metre dining table and access to the back terrace

with barbecue, dining table for lovely outside dining experiences and sweeping views up to the peaks.

The little path to the swimming pool starts here, the pool is inviting with Roman steps leading to the crystal clear water.

There is accommodation for 6 people in three comfortable bedrooms, all have en-suite bathrooms.

The upstairs bedroom has access to a secluded 20m2 roof terrace with the best views of the mountain.

There is a wonderful outside double bed with a canopy for sleeping out on balmy summer nights

All the bedrooms are individually decorated with furnishings, rugs and textiles from Morocco and Mali



Two twin bedrooms lead on to the covered porch through french windows, with lovely views across

the countryside. Both rooms have en-suite bathrooms.
