Your Stay

Wonderfully charming & characterful farmhouse, suitable for a group booking.

We welcome you with a homely mix of fully modernised, to meet today’s needs, whilst respecting all of the original features, like solid wooden doors and uneven walls, that you’d expect to find in rural Southern Spain.

Lounge & Dining

Part of the 200 year old cortijo creates the main spacious open plan living area.

 

It’s cool in the summer having tiled floors throughout and flowing breezes, as well as, cosy in the winter with a log burner and Smart TV streaming Netflix, Disney and Prime.

 

In the vintage dresser there are all sorts of games and books for you to browse through.

A large group can gather around the handcrafted mahogany table from Sumatra. The vintage shoe trolley, in the original stone fireplace, holds all of the larger serving dishes.

 

An original red poppy painting and upholstery fabric, created by your host Kay, reflect the passions of flamenco dancers and the comfy sofa has authentic Moorish cushions adding to the cozy and characterful atmosphere.
