About Carlos Cortes Espana

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.

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.

Wonderful

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.

Great Week Away

  • 5 of 5

The long drive up the winding mountain road was unquestionably worth it when we turned the corner which revealed this stunning property. The inside of the house was decorated traditionally and with real character giving the villa an authentic and homely feel. The location of this property was simply stunning, with views of the breath-taking Granada Mountain Range, as well as overlooking the town of Torrox and great views of the beautiful coastline of Torrox Costa. The pool area is fantastic as are the various patios all with different views to offer. We used the barbeque on several occasions and it was great. Bed were comfy, facilities were well looked after and worked great. There was even a wood burning fire which i'm sure would make a winter break very cosy! The house catered comfortably for our family of 4 with room for two more in the ground level house beneath the main property. Antonio and Carlos were lovely and very helpful, ensuring we had everything we needed for our stay. We were able to totally relax in what felt to us like our own home. Faultless, highly recommended!

Einfach perfekt!

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes Haus mit herrlichen Terrassen in traumhafter Lage.

Wir (2 Erwachsene + 2 Teenager) haben eine perfekte Woche in Torrox verbracht: Ideales Wetter, sehr schönes Haus mit einer fantastischen Aussicht über die Berge bis zum Meer und zahlreichen attraktiven Ausflugszielen für Tagesausflüge.

Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, hat viel Charme und bietet das ideale, ruhige Umfeld, um auf einer der Terrassen oder am Pool zu entspannen und dabei den herrlichen Ausblick zu genießen. Wohn- und Esszimmer haben wir allerdings fast gar nicht genutzt, da wir immer draußen waren.

Fahrtstrecke ab Torrox je nach Fahrstil ca. 15 min. , die Straßen im Hinterland sind sehr gut bis gut fahrbar, man muss aber wissen, dass ein Teil der Anfahrt über nicht asphaltierte Strecke verläuft (wir fanden es unproblematisch). Dafür wird man mit herrlicher Landschaft und mediterraner Natur belohnt. Natürlich braucht man ein Auto, möglichst kein zu großes oder tiefliegendes (wir sind mit einem Nissan Juke sehr gut gefahren.)

Lebensmittel kann man überall entlang der Küste sehr gut einkaufen, aber durchaus auch in den Bergdörfern wie Competa (lokale Produkte sehr empfehlenswert).

Ziele wie Malaga, Granada, Nerja und andere Küstenorte waren problemlos erreichbar.

Die Vermieter haben sich sehr herzlich um uns gekümmert und sich bei Fragen äußerst schnell zurückgemeldet. Die Kommunikation lief auf englisch bzw. Vorort auf in spanisch. Wir fühlten uns sehr gut aufgehoben und würden das Haus jederzeit wieder mieten.
