About the Owner

We lived in the cortijo for 4 years and rented the apartment as a holiday home. For personal reasons we are now living in the UK but have kept our lovely home in the mountains and now rent it as a holiday home for 8/9 people or as an apartment for 4 people. We know the area well and the people so are happy to answer any questions you may have and give advice on the area. We now live and work in Suffolk. I work with a charity organising events and Mike is a music teacher. Our son Patrick, who speaks fluent Spanish, is at the local primary school and helps with the language lessons! We hope you enjoy our lovely home as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A magical place to stay. We have enjoyed every minute. We ate salted cod, drank the bodegas dry, climbed through mountain valleys, counted the stars at night, listened to flamenco, tried out some Spanish and drove each other mad playing ‘scattorgories’. Thanks you for sharing this with us – we will be back."

We couldn’t have wished for a better retreat and wish we could stay longer. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality. A very relaxed and refreshed Sally and Mark."

We have had a brilliant holiday. The house is great and the location is amazing. No doubt we will return. So lovely, we even went so far as to get engaged (not compulsory)"

A cortijo with spectacular mountain views

  • 5 of 5

This was the best accommodation we have enjoyed in several years of Andalucian holidays. The setting was truly wonderful, overlooking the village of Capileria with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains. The cortijo itself was perfect with every facility and a beautifully designed swimming pool. The weather was sensational with wall to wall sunshine every day with a maximum of 92 degrees. This made walking more strenuous than we anticipated but we made it up by alfresco eating and drinking. A really magical place

From the Owner

We fell in love with the area after travelling the whole of Spain decided on the Alpujarras as our home! An area of outstanding natural beauty and the villages are so friendly and still very Spanish. It is quiet yet full of interesting and wonderful people. Loved the walking and cycling available and the music.
