It nestles at an altitude of 400 metres in the hills just 35 minutes drive inland from Malaga Airport in the Axarquia region of Andalusia in Southern Spain. The area benefits from its proximity to the coastal area but has generally remained unaffected by them so retains its local character and identity.

Riogordo is famous world-wide for its annual 'El Paso' at Easter; with a cast of over 400 inhabitants it is unique.

It also has numerous bars & shops still unspoiled by progress. Though most items you may need can be found.

The unique town of Comares can be seen ,clinging to it's mountain top it is visible throughout valley. It still has the remains of it's Moorish heritage. A town of narrow streets , a central plaza & stunning views of the Axarquia & the sea.

About Lisa Ehret

Julian and myself, lisa, purchased our dream home 15 years ago. I myself grew up in Spain but returned to UK where we married and started our family.

Our dream was to restore a CORTIJO in Andalucia.

So with our two young girls we started the project and made CORTIJO Cuscurro our dream family home. We converted the main Famhouse into a lovely home with lots of love and care retaining the traditional features, yet having all the mod cons we had become accustomed to. The a Bakery adjoining became a holiday rental. We have had many happy years providing our guests with a stunning and relaxing location to holiday.

We are delighted to have many good reviews and lots of returning guests,

Our girls left the nest 6 years ago and we have now moved locally to enable us to provide more accommodation to our guests.

We live locally and take pleasure in ensuring all goes well for our guests during their stay.

We are at the end of the phone should you need anything and visit by arrangement to clean the pool and jacuzzi spa.

Lisa Ehret purchased this farmhouse in 1999

Why Lisa Ehret chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

CORTIJO Cuscurro is for guests who enjoy seclusion, relaxation with stunning views all round.

We fell in love with the views and nature that surrounds Cuscurro, and we know you will too.

There is everything you could possibly need in the CORTIJO. This is more a home than a rental.

Riogordo is nearby with tapas bars , shops, great butchers, bakers . All at cheap non tourist area prices

What makes this farmhouse unique

The Vaulted lounge is such a pleasure.

New this year we have a fire pit. It's been a great hit so far.


Lots of space and privacy for large groups.

The features of this property are never ending.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures do not do this cottage justice. The cottage itself is lovely with good size bedrooms and great kitchen. The outdoor barbecue is also great for cooking. The pool is stunning and the views from the pool have to be seen to be believed. The location is fantastic and the local village has great bars and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here - we are definitely going back it is absolutely fantastic.

We visited the property featured in Summer 2008. We were two families and can highly recommend this Farmhouse and Cottage. We had plenty of space to call our own, yet had the most fantastic views, swimming pool and the Spa was a plus for the children. Day and night entertainment. The Kitchen is outstanding and the lounge well WOW. Great all round for a stunning base yet easy for us to see the area. Thanks guys

We have provided a new leather bed in the second double bedroom with leather side cabinets. Hope to welcome you back sometime.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was spacious, well maintained, clean and well designed both inside and out with a fantastic pool and courtyard. I booked this for my 50th birthday party and the owners could not have been more accommodating. Without them this party would not have happened! They arranged the catering, live band, decorations, drinks and even collected my cake. We had the most fantastic time with our family and friends. The views are stunning and I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

Relaxing Break in a Large Rural Villa

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of 12 friends stayed at Cortijo Cuscurro from the 21st to the 28th September 2015. Throughout the booking process, and over subsequent months, Lisa was very quick to respond to all queries and was more than happy to accommodate us when the group number changed.

The villa itself is very spacious and offers commanding views over the surrounding countryside. In terms of location, it is suitably quiet to offer privacy but not so remote that you can't get access to nearby shops or restaurants (Riogordo and Comares are a short distance away). Our group spent the vast majority of our time at the house itself having stocked up on shopping at the start of the week.

The property is quite sprawling, which offered the chance for people to spread out and do their own thing. In the evenings, the courtyard provided ample space for communal meals and the ambient lighting is an excellent touch.

The pool area is perfectly situated to capture the sun from sunrise to sunset and most of our afternoons were spent here. The hot tub is well shaded and relaxing and whilst some may argue about the necessity of it in 30 degree heat, in our case it was used every day and was a great feature for relaxing evenings. The lighting in and around the pool area really helped to create a relaxing atmosphere at night.

The house itself is well equipped and a comprehensive folder is provided to guests, giving full instruction in the use of all the facilities. We had a couple of queries during the week, but Lisa was always just a phone call away and happy to help.

We would absolutely recommend this house if you are looking for a large, well equipped and ideally situated villa. We had a very relaxing week in the sun and will hopefully be back again in the future.

Stunning farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We have had a family get together in the outstanding and I mean outstanding farmhouse. Full of charm, yet equipped with all modern conveniences.

The courtyard is the place to spend your days and evenings. Cool shaded and soo relaxing. Many a siesta was taken on the daybed!!

The pool was lovely for all our children and the adults saved the jaccuzzi to the evenings.

The local villages had all you could need and Lisa booked us a taxi, for one night to a local restaurant as we celebrated a 40th while there.

The meat from the local butcher was the best we have ever had. The gas BBQ was great as the men did most of the cooking. always good.

I would highly recommend this house to all those who want to chill in outstanding surroundings with a high standard.

We are definately going to return. Maybe Christmas as the lounge was just so homely.
