One of three charming cottages in a converted cortijo sharing a stunning pool overlooking rural olive groves. Guide book recommended by Alastair Sawday peace and tranquility combined with access to the cultural centres of Granada, Cordoba, Malaga and Antequera. During 2020 due to Covid19 cleaning protocols, you will not share any communal areas with other guests - you will have the whole cortijo to yourselves!

The space
Casita Liebre (meaning Little Hare House) is reached through the original farmyard doors leading onto the courtyard.

Accessed from the courtyard, the accommodation is based in the oldest part of the reformed Cortijo with low beamed ceilings and niches retained from the original building.

The original walls are thick, providing coolness in the summer and retaining warmth in the winter. There is a lounge, with large comfortable Moorish style divan sofas and a log burner for cool winter evenings. There is also satellite television. French doors provide light and access to the courtyard. An open staircase leads upstairs

A low doorway takes you into the fully equipped kitchen which also opens onto the courtyard through French doors.

There is a full sized electric oven/ hob plus a fridge with a small freezer compartment:essential for cooling the local beer and wine! A good range of plates, pots, glasses etc. allow for home from home, relaxed food preparation. Basics (such as salt, pepper, oil, washing up liquid etc.) are provided as part of our service. There is a kitchen table to seat four for dining.

Upstairs there are two twin/double bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms, under a pitched beamed roof. Both bedrooms have comfortable twin beds (or a double, if required); a wardrobe; a small dressing table and each opens into a bathroom with walk-in shower; toilet and basin.

Outside there is a large private courtyard planted with jasmine and lavender, surrounded by traditional high white walls. You are not overlooked by the other casitas. There is outside seating for relaxing and a table for eating, with sails providing shade on our hot Andaluz summer days. A barbecue allows you to make the most of outside living. Guests are welcome to smoke outside in their own courtyard.

Our licence number from the Junta de Andalucia is No. de Registro VTAR/GR/000760.
Our Tax Identification number for IVA (VAT) is B92521418

Guest access
The communal patio and pool area is shared by a maximum of 10 guests and is set on the side of the hill facing fantastic views of the valley, hills and olive groves. There are tables and chairs provided for eating, or sitting with a cool drink and watching the sun set…… There are also cushioned loungers for sun lovers! The pool is set on the edge of the patio and has a comfortable seating ledge in the water, giving you somewhere to sit and keep cool whilst you read or just gaze at the view…..

There is an outside shower room with toilet and basin so that you do not have to return to your casita once ensconced in the sunshine.

There is also a laundry room accessed from the pool patio area, with a washing machine, wash basin, iron and ironing board for communal use.

Other things to note
A car is essential both to access the cortijo and to make the most of Andalucia's culture and history.

Location

Granada, Andalucía, Spain

Set up in the mountains some 8 km from the town of Iznajar, Cortijo Las Rosas is located close to the largest lake in Andalucia. This provides us with an inland beach right on the edge of The Subbetica – a national park dotted with traditional ‘white villages’. Our local village of Fuentes de Cesna is within walking distance or a 3 minute car drive.

Apart from day trips to the various historic cities of Andalucia, there are opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching and other outdoor pursuits. Marylynne and Gillian are on hand to provide welcome packs and help and information if required. You can enjoy a tranquil break far removed from the usual tourist traps provided by more commercial accommodation.
