The private swimming pool
Large garden with fresh fruits, feel free to enjoy these
Large gas BBQ located on the terrace

The cortigo is a lovely place, with all the amenities needed.
The view is stunning and so are the surroundings.
You're not far from Granada (40 minutes) and there are nice villages not far from the house.
Valentijn and his mother are kind people, you'll get all the information you need to have a nice stay.
And regarding the famous unpaved road, with careful driving you won't have any problem. We drived a tiny Mitsubishi Colt and managed to get back to the cortigo every evening.
I you are looking for a remote, quiet place, don't hesitate to rent this place.
If you want peace and quiet, that is the right spot. Secluded, a bit off the beaten track, the cortigo is a piece of heaven. It is probably better if you drive a bigger wheel car, still our citroen c3 did pretty well (btw avoid goldcar rental). Perfect for self catering, great kitchen with all the appliances and gizmos. Excellent wifi, we do not know about the tv as we did ignore it. Wonderfull books. You will probably see little of the city nightlife during your stay at the cortigo, but the zilion of stars over the surrounding mountains make you feel like nothing else matters :-) Thank you, Juana!
Pasamos un fin de semana inolvidable rodeados de naturaleza. La casa es muy acogedora y tiene todo lo necesario para el día a día. La piscina está muy bien y se mantiene limpia. Recomendado si quieres desconectar de tu rutina diaria durante unos días.
We spent a memorable weekend surrounded by nature. The house is very cozy and has everything you need for day to day. The pool is well maintained and clean. Recommended if you want to disconnect from your daily routine for a few days.
Vi er lige kommet hjem fra en FANTASTISK ferie i Andalusien. Valentijn har været meget venlig og give god feedback under booking. Huset ejes af hans mor Joan, som var vores vært. Joan hentede os på en aftalt restaurant og viste os op til huset. Huset er SKØNT med vidunderlig udsigt og stor privat pool. Vi levede et ugenert liv, med friske figner og mandler fra træerne. Grøntsager fra haven. Frisk brise, høj sol, skøn udsigt. Vi sov to voksne i et værelse og tre børn i det andet værelse. Derudover er der sovesofa i stuen og en på terrassen.
Huset har myggenet for alle vinduer og for udestuen, så man kan tænde lyset, have vinduerne åbne uden at blive spist af myg om aftenen.
Vi var i løbet af ferien oppe i Sierra Nevada, i Alhambra (Granada) ved stranden på trekking i floder og hyggede os i skønne lokale landsbyer. Joans hus ligger op af en grusvej, der tager 4 (email hidden) op ad. Huset ligger også i overkommelig afstand til både strand og sneklædte bjerge. Storbyer og storslået natur.
Vi manglede intet på vores ferie. Alt virkede. Internet, vaksemaskine, gasgrill og pool. Hvis der er noget du synes der mangler, kan du altid bare spørge Valentijn eller Joan og jeg er sikker på, at de vil hjælpe dig hvis de kan.
Jeg håber jeg kommer til at opleve denne skønne cortijo på andre årstider også. Ville være skønt at plukke modne avocado over terrassen og stå på snowboard i Sierra Nevada i februar eller måske bare se alting blomstre og floderne fosse af smeltevand i foråret.
Vidunderligt sted, som vi helt klart kan anbefale til alle der kan leje en bil og bestige en spændende grusvej :)
The Cortigo is in a beautiful place, we really enjoyed the atmosphere and view. However the downside of this nice location is that the Cortigo is quite remote, the nearest bakery is a 10 – 15 minute drive.
Don't worry too much about the unpaved road, a normal car can be used.
The facilities are good. The Wi-Fi is working well and fast, the solar electricity was able to power anything we wanted (laundry machine, juicer, fans). We also used the gas powered BBQ a lot.
Valentijn and Joan are helpful and friendly hosts. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice relaxed house in Spain.
The Cortijo is in a really beautiful setting with stunning views and always a pleasant breeze on the patio just when you want it in the heat of August - and of course there is the fantastic swimming pool surrounded by avocado, fig & mango trees as well as bananas a magical garden. At the end of a rugged camino - It's quite isolated but with neighbours nearby, that was very much part of the charm. The camino is rugged and steep in parts but perfectly manageable in dry weather with common sense and careful driving. Approx 30 mins from the sea and supermarkets. Lovely walks in the local area and within an hour of Granada. Off grid - the Solar power worked very well for a simple life - with all the basics covered - light, fridge (gas) cooker (gas) enough juice for washing machine, electric fans - laptop etc etc - just don't expect to be able to use a hairdryer or boil an electric kettle!
The cortijo is a real home from home - Joan and Valentijn are fantastic hosts - very flexible - clear communicators - couldn't have been more helpful. There was no internet but the local bar has good wifi so if you feel the need to get connected - not a hassle.
