About the property

Villa in Cortijo Grande, Mojacar, Costa Almeria, Spain - Located In Tranquil Valley With Golf Course, 15mins Drive To Beach

Casa Swann is located on the sunniest side of the valley. The driveway is lined with pretty dry stone walls, olive trees, pepper trees and palms. Lavender, rosemary and thyme cover the valley slopes and scent the air. A decorative arched white gate leads from the driveway into a small sunny courtyard. From here you can enter Casa Swann via the double wooden front door or walk past the lemon tree through the arch to the pool terrace. Curved tiled steps lead into the pool at the shallow end. Underwater lights encourage a refreshing dip on hot nights. The unusual square and round pergola windows frame stunning valley views and sunsets. The curved upper terrace is accessed via the lounge and dining room. Moorish tiled steps invite you down to the pool terrace. A refreshing dip in the pool followed by coffee on the terrace is the perfect start to each sunny day. The covered outside dinning area overlooks the entrance courtyard and has distant views of the sea to the East.

Magic Valley Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from Spain's magic valley, Cortijo Grande,

Casa Swann sits with views across and down the valley over the golf course in one direction, and with views of the distant Mediterranean Sea in the other, a simply stunning location!

The villa lacks for nothing, it is equipped with pretty much everything you could possibly need for an unforgettable holiday experience, it is truly a home away from home. Stunning views, Fabulous accommodation in the sunniest

spot in Spain. How could you not have a great holiday?

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Almeria is proud of its glamorous connection to the movie industry. Many westerns were filmed here including The Good, The Bad & The Ugly starring Clint Eastwood. Film sets remain and you can visit, watch shows and visit off set film locations on horseback.


Almeria has over 200 kilometres of coast with long, uncrowded stretches of sand, pretty sheltered coves and the rugged wilderness of Spain's south eastern cape. Mojacar, Garrucha and Vera beaches are all within 15-20mins drive from Cortijo Grande. There are lots of other beaches worth visiting within an hour's drive. Cabo de Gata, a protected area of coastline, is particularly recommended.


The closest airport to Cortijo Grande is Almeria (80km - 45mins). Murcia is the next closest (150km - 1hr 25mins). Alicante is the third closest (215km - 2 hours). The route from Murcia airport to the motorway is complicated and therefore may take up to 2 hours.

It is necessary to have a car when staying at Casa Swann.


Travelling through Almeria province gives the visitor a better understanding of the geographical, climatic, cultural and historical mix which makes it so unique. From the troglodytic villages in the Alpujarras - to the white washed moorish hilltop stronghold of Mojacar - to the gypsum karst caves beneath Sorbas - to the only desert in Europe, famous for its spaghetti western movie sets - to the renaissance castle in Los Velez.

  • Notes on accommodation: Please contact us if you have any questions. Outside: Casa Swann nestles into the mountain rock. Rough stone steps lead from the back terrace inviting you to explore the steep hillside garden behind the villa and enjoy the views from a higher vantage point. There is a private leafy glen with a stone bench behind the villa which is lovely and cool in summer. This is a tempting place to hide away on a hot afternoon to read a book or a magazine in peace and quiet. Utility Room: An open drying & utility courtyard is accessed from the kitchen, back and front terraces. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: A welcome pack of groceries will be at the villa for your arrival. All linen is provided (except beach towels). The villa is cleaned and linens washed before you arrive. There is a weekly linen and towel change for guests staying 2 or more weeks. Other: It is impossible to ignore the scenery here. All rooms look out onto the valley with the golf course below and the mountains above.
