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.

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.
