'El Cortijillo' está situado em um vale isolado, descendo uma trilha íngreme, abaixo da pequena aldeia montanhosa de Castaras (800 metros alt), na Alpujarra Central. A casa é composta por 2 quartos, um duplo e um twin, ambos possuem amplas instalações de armazenamento. Uma Cozinha \ Diner, bem dimensionada e bem equipada, é um plano aberto que incorpora uma área de salão com banheiras de 3 lugares e 2 lugares. O banheiro é composto de chuveiro, bidé, lavatório e WC. El Cortijillo permanece frio ao longo do dia e uma brisa suave pode reduzir o calor durante a noite. Nós fornecemos jogos, um CD player e CDs com uma seleção de artistas diferentes, uma excelente variedade de livros, incluindo guias para caminhadas e história da área. Diretamente fora da porta da frente é um pátio de bom tamanho e sombreado com mesa e cadeiras e um churrasco a gás, levando desta é uma grande área de jogo que costumava ser o "círculo de debulha". O Pool Privado tem forma oval, a extremidade profunda é inferior a 6 pés e a entrada e a saída é feita através de passos de concreto largos na extremidade rasa. As vistas de El Cortijillo são panorâmicas, tanto pelo vale como para a Contraviesa como para a aldeia de Castaras. Compramos o imóvel em novembro de 2011, depois de ter visto isso, sabíamos que precisávamos comprá-lo, vendemos no Reino Unido e não olhamos para trás. Vivemos em um grande Cortijo que consiste em parte nas ruínas de um moinho que remonta a 1750. Entre os 39 hectares cultivamos amêndoas, azeitonas, figos e são bastante auto-suficientes em relação às frutas e vegetais. Nós mantemos galinhas e ovos geralmente estão disponíveis. Existe apenas uma faixa para nós, então não há tráfego de passagem e estamos rodeados por milhas e milhas de paisagens intocadas. Embora vivamos dentro dos mesmos motivos, respeitamos a privacidade das pessoas, mas se desejar se juntar a nós para um copo de vinho local, estamos sempre satisfeitos em compartilhar nossas experiências da área e ouvir os detalhes do seu dia. A beleza de viver aqui é a reclusão onde você pode ouvir o canto dos pássaros e o córrego serpenteando suavemente pelo vale, à noite não há poluição luminosa, o que é excelente para o olhar das estrelas.

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.
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 !
Calme et tranquilité
Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans ce cottage en pleine nature. La maison est fonctionnelle et confortable. Merci à Louise et Nigel pour leur accueil et leur sourire.
Nous recommandons à tous ceux qui recherchent tranquillité, calme et nature.
Thank you for your kind review.
An unexpectedly nice time-out in the year
It's like finding a needle in a haystack on the Internet. I was looking for a secluded holiday home in nature in Andalucia, and found the contact of Louise and Nigel. Based on the given descriptions of the location and surroundings and also the reactions of previous holidaymakers, this seemed to be the right choice for me and for my two daughters, also because there is a swimming pool. The journey there was exciting and adventurous and our expectations were fully fulfilled. Be it the very spacious and warmly furnished apartment, the terrace where you could indulge in different times of the day but above all the warmth and hospitality of Louise and Nigel - it was just winning the lottery. The fact that my children could not use WIFI, they could quickly get over it - a good exercise for teenagers. I am particularly fond of nature, be it the variety of insects (butterflies, grasshoppers) or reptiles, so this is the place to go to if you enjoy want to enjoy wildlife. A second visit is at the top of my list, and I can warmly recommend the holiday apartment of Louise and Nigel to anyone seeking solitude and peace in seclusion. I am sure that both want to preserve this resting place as such in the future.
Thank you for your review and your kind words. Hopefully we will see you again soon.
Wow - all you could wish for and more!
Having spent two nights in Granada, we arrived at El Cortijo looking forward to some peace and relaxation - and that’s exactly what we got! We feel really fortunate to have found this wonderful secluded cottage in a really beautiful part of Spain. Off the beaten track and off grid....The cottage itself was spacious and cool inside - just perfect when the afternoon temperatures rose. It was well equipped, with everything we needed for a relaxing stay and Louise and Nigel had even gone the extra mile making sure those often forgotten provisions were available on our arrival.
The track to the cottage was steep but provided some spectacular views across the countryside.
We visited Cádiar and walked locally, but mainly just sat, ate, drank and watched the wildlife - especially the bats in the evening - just magic!
Louise and Nigel are the perfect hosts - always on hand to give advice but never intrusive. We will be back!!
Thank you for your kind words, we know that we will see you again soon !
Completely exceeded expectations. Wonderful.
We were delighted to be able to take the property as the odd dates we required ( mid week to week) fitted with our wonderful hosts. We communicated beforehand and they advised us on our route to the property via recommended supermarkets ,filling stations etc. On arriving web were so impressed with the stunning location and to find that the cottage was 'just perfect' for our stay. Over the days we realised what unwinding and relaxing really means . We took full advantage of the pool, solitude and peaceful retreat and enjoyed time with our lovely hosts who were never intrusive but, over the week became warm and generous acquaintances.Our time at El Cortilljo was so very memorable. All was perfect- the cottage well maintained ,clean and easy. The garden simply secluded and the perfect pool to boot. Just brilliant.Thank you Louise and Nigel for a unique stay in your wonderful property. We will recall it in the winter ahead with fondness and envy.
Have a well deserved break and ,who knows??Roger and Vanessa.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are always happy to accommodate our guests on different dates to the 'norm' as we appreciate that costs can vary greatly. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
