About Nieves España Jiménez

Traditionally, Andalusian families, particularly families from the villa of Torrox, used to spend the winter or summer seasons in houses located in the countryside, normally known as "Cortijos", in order to gather olives or grapes between others fruits from the season. Consequently, almost each family in Torrox owned a house or "Cortijo" outside the village for this purpose. Our family has used this ancient tradition in Torrox in order to offer our customers a renewed version of "the Andalusian Cortijo" with the only aim of assuring your relax and enjoyment.

The first villa was built between the years 1985-1990, is the house that we called "Cortijo Del Monte". All the family contributed on building up the house, Mom, Dad and the kids, with the aim of enjoying weekends and holidays in the house... but only until the children grew up.

By chance, and coinciding with this time, a travel agent, who knew about our house, proposed us to rent the house; according to his opinion, the villa had all the optimal conditions to be offered as a house to rent. Consequently, we finally decided to rent it and since then our only goal is to offer the best service and comfort.

Afterwards, between the years 1998-2005, other villas were built up, as the ones called "Cortijo El Paraíso", "Cortijo Los Almendrales" and "Cortijo Del Sol". It is still a family business, Mom is responsible for cleaning inside the house and taking care of all the minimum details for keeping the charm inside home; on the other hand, Dad takes care of all exterior areas, as gardens, growing up trees and flowers, watering plants and cleaning and keeping the pool; and finally, the kids, that now are adults, particularly Carlos, is responsible for the design and diffusion of the villas in all the national and international websites.

Our only objective is to offer the best, so we do not scrimp on efforts or expenses to achieve that you finally enjoy the comfort, relax and charm of our villas.

Best holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time!

The vacation began with the booking of this beautiful property. It was quick, easy and secure!

After we arrived in Malaga and drove into the town we were picked up from a nearby petrol station and led to the villa.

Since the villa is on the top of a hill/mountain is is a bit steep towards the end of road but very manageable - and worth it!

The views were beautiful and we had the most romantic sunsets during our stay. The outdoor area is clean and sunny most of the day! We probably spent almost all day outside.

The pool is big and clean and can be lit when it is dark.

There is also a beautiful path next to the villa to sit on some benches and enjoy a different view with your morning coffee.

The villa and whole outdoor area is very private and quite which made it perfect to relax and forget the rest of the world.

The villa itself is spacious, clean and extremely well maintained. It is equipped with all essentials you might need during your stay and we knew that if we would have any questions, problems or requests the extremely kind owner and his family would not hesitate to make our stay even better!!

We were treated very kindly and welcoming and it felt like home from the start!

We would like to thank everyone once more for this relaxed holiday and all the kindness that we experienced.

Ewelina & Hendrik

Great views, private location, immaculate, and well connected to the online world

  • 5 of 5

Cortijo El Paraiso Tropical was a great villa for our 2 week, early summer holiday. It has great views, from mountains to sea, and its setting means it catches a pleasant breeze. And it's only about 15 minutes to the motorway.

There's a lot of attention to the tropical theme, and the garden is wonderful including a lovely blue paved walk at the back of the house. The condition of the villa is immaculate, and it's well appointed, particularly the kitchen. The variety of outdoor spaces are great: gazebo, shaded dining area, double bed, BBQ, and pool area.

We had a very friendly welcome from Antonio and his son Carlos on arrival, and they were helpful throughout our stay and very respectful of our privacy when visiting.

The quality of the internet connection is excellent which was a real surprise given the rural location, and combined with the available channels on satellite TV, you can remain very well globally connected electronically, while physically being "away from it all". The property is very private.

We definitely recommend Cortijo El Paraiso Tropical an all-round excellent holiday!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Carlos & Antonio,

Because we had a wonderfull vacation in one of your houses, we would like to share our thoughts about "el Paraíso".

First of all: Carlos, we were so happy with someone like you who is quick in answering our questions and so nice that everything was well taken care of. Antonio, you are such a wonderfull person! You came to get us at the BP-station and showed us the way to the cottage. You showed us around and even came back the next morning to clean the pool. You told us that the view was amazing and the next morning we could see that you were right! The view is so beautiful and so stunning! Like we lived in paradise for one week!

The house is clean, has plenty of space and you have everything you need. We had such a wonderfull vacation in Torrox and we recommend your house to everyone! We were so happy to be your guests!

Again, thank you for everything and we'll hope to see you again some day!

Perfect, private position with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

We had excellent communication with Carlos from the start of the booking process until our fond farewell.

Arriving at the pre-arranged meeting point was simple and Antonio, father to Carlos led the way up the road and the mountain track beautifully, to his amazing property.

He explained and showed us everything that we needed to know about the house and it's working's and during our stay he was on hand if we needed him. Carlos was easily contactable also.

Our family of five plus Grandma enjoyed the charming, rustic, easy layout of the interior, bedrooms were superb, beds comfortable, good pillows and bedding, great showers and plenty of towels for bathrooms as well as plenty of poolside towels.

The excellent outside area gave us ample space to enjoy eating outside for various mealtimes, incredible views of the surrounding hillsides and mountains, as well as tempting views of the sea. We enjoyed the pristine swimming pool every day even though it wasn't heated, it never took us long to get used to it, helped by the sun warming us up in between swims. Such a tranquil setting that you couldn't fail to relax and enjoy it all. The only shame was that we had to leave it all behind and return home.

I feel that this would definitely be a house that I would love to return to and spend more time exploring such a wonderful area.

The warmth we felt from Antonio and Carlos reassures me that I will be back to practice my Spanish some more.

Muchísimas gracias y nos vemos :)

Picturesque, Peaceful and Private

  • 5 of 5

When Antonio showed us around this beautiful villa and I saw the view from the pool for the first time I admit to being close to tears - it was simply stunning; the pictures don't do the scenery and location full justice. Yes, I'll admit the drive is a little hair-raising in places, but any experienced driver will have no problems.

Antonio was a very welcoming and charming host and gave us all the information we needed when we arrived. Carlos was easily contactable throughout our stay and very quick to respond to any queries - recommending a wonderful restaurant in Torrox, when we asked, so we could celebrate our daughter's birthday.

We also enjoyed a lovely day at the small, sand and shingle beach in Torrox Costa and had a walk around the old town which is steeped in history and full of quaint narrow streets and whitewashed terraces. It is steep in places however, so it may not suit everyone.

Given the location, we were impressed that the Wi-Fi worked well, which was a relief to our older children, who were still able to stay in touch through social media and even access Netflix on the iPad. However, we enjoyed the evenings most - making use of the well-equipped barbeque, then relaxing in the canopied seating area to watch the sun set over the hills and sipping a chilled glass of wine.

If you want to relax; get away from it all and soak up the scenery, setting the pace yourself, then I would highly recommend Cortijo El Paraiso.

Great holiday - lovely villa.

  • 5 of 5

No trick photography - Cortijo El Paraiso is as lovely as the pictures. In fact, the view from the terrace is even more spectacular . We loved the drive up the mountain to the villa even though the first time was a bit nerve-racking. . We had three teenage boys with us and they were able to play in the pool well into the evening. The complete privacy meant we did not have to worry about making too much noise.

Antonio made us feel very welcome as he showed us around the villa.The basket of wine,ale,almonds and olive oil was a lovely touch. His son, Carlos has been attentive to detail , giving all the information we needed and being easily accessible also by phone.

We had a great holiday with easy access to the beaches, pretty towns and of course Grenada .We particularly liked the mountainous terrain. Not only was it a lovely place to stay, I believe it was excellent value for money.

We would highly recommend the villa for a family holiday.

A beautiful luxury villa ideally located for a holiday away from it all but also close to the sea and the hustle and bustle of village and town life if needed.

Enviably located on the top of a hill this property is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves and enjoys truly stunning views of the Mediterranean.

The house is situated about an hour drive east of Malaga between the white villages of Torrox and Cómpeta. Torrox village is a drive of around 15 minutes and a distance of 6km approx. The house is located on a hilltop therefore enjoying truly fabulous views of the mountains, sea and coast between Nerja and Malaga. Cómpeta is also very close by at approx. 7km. The access to the house is excellent. On leaving the motorway you have a short drive to the main Torrox/Cómpeta road (A-7207) and then 4.5km of this road before arriving at the Montealegre area of Torrox where you take an excellent track, most concreted to arrive at the villa.
