There are two acres of garden, terracing and orchard for you to explore and enjoy.
The property is situated at the end of a gravel drive, there are no passers by apart from the goat herd now and again!
The cortijo is nestled in two acres of sunny and shaded areas to sit and read, chat or snooze, secluded and private.
There is ample parking along the drive shaded by olive trees or in front of the cortijo.
The main terrace is covered by a beautiful Wisteria, providing shade throughout the day and all year round. With a wide view across the garden towards the pool, olive terraces and surrounding mountains it feels surrounded by greenery and dipped in nature.
Relax on comfy sofas with loads of cushions covered with fabrics sourced from our adventures in India. Gather everyone around the large solid wood table for food and chatter.
Accessed from the guest house or garden via ramp.
The lawned garden provides a tranquil place to relax in the sunshine or in the shade of ancient olive trees. There is room enough to run around, or even play a game of vintage skittles.
The Pergola is another shaded area where you can sit and absorb the majestic mountain views and tranquil rural life.
The pool terrace is gated and can be completely shut off from the garden for safety if required. It is the responsibility of all adults to keep this gate locked when not by the pool with children.
There is a timed fresh water shower and wooden drying ‘ladder’ for wet towels. The spacious pool terrace has plenty of sunny spots being south facing, as well as lots of places with shade. It’s completely secluded with mountain views from every view point.
The large pool is fresh water, heated by the sun only and maintained regularly, perfect for cooling down on a hot summer’s day or taking that cold plunge in the cooler months.
