About Antonio Cortés Bueno

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.

Antonio Cortés Bueno purchased this cottage in 2005

Beautiful villa in a lovely quiet and peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

Cortijo del Sol is a lovely property in a stunning situation, with views of mountains and sea. Clean, comfortable and well-equipped, with outside spaces offering shade through the day, it is ideal if your perfect holiday consists of reading, crosswords, cooling off in the pool, and a bottle of wine in the evening. Antonio is also the ideal host, responding promptly to the smallest problem or enquiry.

If you like to dine out a lot, the property may be less suitable. There are good restaurants in Torrox Pueblo and in Competa, but the former is 20 minutes' drive, and the latter half an hour. Bear in mind too that the last 2 or 3 km up to the villa is on winding dirt roads, which I would hesitate to tackle after dark!

Quiet place with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! It is a drive up the hill, but it is well worth it. A very beautiful and well equiped house with lovely terraces around the house. Antonio is very hospitable and he will help you whenever he can. He provided us with the names of some very nice restaurants, brought me af basket of the local fruit 'nispero' (delicious) and he even arranged an interpretor when I needed medical help due to a little accident. Thanks for a great vacation. We hope to be back!

Perfect Holiday Villa, Perfect Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the October week school holiday a few months ago. From the outset communication was brilliant, timely and clear and when we arrived we were met at the pre-arranged place by Antonio. Somewhere between google translate, our miniscule smattering of Spanish and Antonio's warmth we were able to understand each other and following him up the winding track to the villa was not a problem at all.

The villa itself is absolutely beautiful and beautifully situated with gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside and the sea in the distance.It is quiet and private and in the mornings you are unlikely to wake up to anything other than the sound of the odd donkey braying in the distance and a cockerel or two. Torrox is not far and there you get the beach, a decent selection of eateries, shops and supermarkets. Nerja is a short drive away as well so there is plenty to do in the area.We have no reservations about recommending this property.To Antonio and Carlos, thank you so much for your hospitality, we hope to see you again soon :-)

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Antonio, who was lovely, and very patient with our lack of Spanish. Antonio led us up to the house, what a beautiful property, in a stunning setting, the views are spectacular, mountains, sea. The house is charming and very well equipped, with everything you could need.

The pool area is fantastic, and was very well used by all of us, as were all of the outside seating areas.

The welcome pack was gratefully received.

We would definitely recommend this property.

My husband and I had a wonderful 2 weeks at the Villa. Seclusion and Beautiful views! The property is clean and well maintained. We were met by Antonio, who was very charming and helpful. Although our Spanish is limited, we managed to communicate easily. If peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings is what you are looking for, then this is for you. Thank you Antonio for a lovely stay.
