About Cortijo El Chaparro

We are Sally and Steve Kearns, We met many years ago in Middlesex where Steve was an Underground driver and I worked at Heathrow Airport. We had an opportunity in the late Eighties to move to Yorkshire, where Steve followed a career as a signalman on the railways and I was a Business Travel consultant.

We started searching for a property in Spain to Semi-retire and came across the Iznajar area with its lake and knew this is where we wanted to Live. We came across the Cortijo in 2014 and fell in love with its stunning views, after purchasing the property we fully renovated the Cortijo into a two bedroom house for us and a three bedroom rental house. We moved to the Cortijo in May 2015 from York and are enjoying the slower pace of life and the endless days of sunshine. We still have lots to keep us occupied with various projects on our Land.

Cortijo El Chaparro purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views, totally peaceful and relaxing holiday. The house is modern and spotlessly clean. Owners have thought of everything, welcome pack of food and drinks and the honesty bar/ ice creams were much appreciated and so helpful. The fire pit with a constant supply of wood and cosy blankets were all great for stargazing in the evenings. Cannot fault the accommodation, it was fantastic. A great place if you want a quiet, relaxing stay in the sunshine.

The most amazing place with pool

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 with 2 children aged 13 and 9. We would rate the property 6 starts out of 5 - it was fabulous! The accommodation is perfect and we loved the open bbq and pizza oven. We spent most of our time outside where there was always a sunny or shady spot depending upon your preference. The views were breathtaking - we have never seen anything so amazing. The pool is a great size - approx 12 by 10 feet - and we all loved it. We did wonder if we would use the hot tub given the heat but we used it ever day - a real treat. If it got really hot we enjoyed playing all of the games left in the property and also watched a few of the DVDs. Our hosts Sally and Steve were brilliant - they provided a very generous welcome pack and gave us loads of top tips for places to go, routes etc. We loved their 2 dogs - the kids wanted to bring them home! Their place is next door but they were so considerate and we had complete privacy - although the kids liked to see the dogs so they would let them come and visit. You need a car to visit the surrounding places of interest but the benefit of the location is the total peace and spectacular views. We've had the most amazing holiday and want to go back! Thanks Sally and Steve - and Fergus and Meg!

Perfect family holiday in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week with our two young sons here. The house itself is presented beautifully, was spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed. It's location is amazing, nestled amongst the olive groves with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The location is remote but there is plenty to see and do nearby, however, we loved the secludedness- no traffic noise, no light pollution, which makes for amazing stars at night, no crowds, just perfect peaceful family time!

We had a wonderful time playing with the boys in the pool and digging in the sandy area. And also had some gorgeous evenings sat on the terrace watching the sunset with a bottle of wine once they were in bed! When we did manage to drag ourselves away from the house we found the local area to be full of charming, truly Spanish villages- not a tourist shop in sight and that's how we like it!

This home wouldn't be what it is without the owners, Sally and Steve, who were really helpful from our first contact before we booked right through the holiday. They do everything they can to make your stay comfortable and your holiday perfect.

All in all, a fabulous stay in a fabulous home in a fabulous location! We're already planning our next trip!

A beautiful hideaway with everything needed for a very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely setting high in the hills amid endless olive trees. The views and sunsets as others have said were amazing. The Cortijo was very clean and comfortable with lovely big beds and very good size en-suites. The kitchen had all that was needed from a holiday home as the whole point is to take advantage of the BBQs and pizza oven all that outside space with areas for sun, shade, relaxing or taking advantage of the 'large' pool, a great experience. We were a family of 4 adults and found it was great to be together but also plenty of space to be apart!

Our hosts Sally and Steve went out of their way to ensure we had the best possible time, they were always there if needed but otherwise very discreet. They recommended some great restaurants and places to visit and even gave us a lift to find the 'local' supermarket! Nothing was too much trouble, even Fergus their beautiful dog popped in (with encouragement from us) to make sure we were enjoying ourselves, otherwise you wouldn't know he was there he is so quiet and well behaved. The welcome pack was a great bonus and not just a couple of teabags and thimble of milk, but the initial essentials always needed at the start of a stay. That and the honesty bar (well and truly raided on more than one occasion) show how much they care about their visitors. We even managed to leave a couple of items of clothing behind (excuse is out 05.30 departure!) and Sally is sending on to us. We cannot recommend our hosts or their lovely property highly enough, we travel all round the world for business and pleasure and this will be one of our favourite 'hideaways' relaxing (amazingly quiet), views from all angles, we even had swallows diving for the pool and we are looking to return next year if all goes to plan. Also the weather was still in the high 20s so my daughter in law managed to get the tan she wanted. The evenings were starting to cool, but the fire pit and fleece blankets ensured it was still possible to enjoy the fresh air and arguments over which star was which! In all a really enjoyable stay. Thank you so much Sally, Steve and Fergus, I hope others have as good a time as we did.
