About the Owner
My wife and myself almost retired came to Almeria region originally only for 6 months, but we found by chance the valley of Cortijo Grande and were bowled over my its unique beauty and peaceful atmosphere and stayed... Its location gives it a varied lifestyle a peaceful retreat but only minutes away from everything you could possibly need either to live or holiday.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Brian - poss best accommodation in Spain.
Ann - marvelous will use again.
Michael (London) - we have just returned to UK having spent the greater part of February at your Townhouse. We had a great time. The house was perfect for us. It was roomy, well furnished, clean and well equipped. On arrival Clive and Jill were there to greet us with a very useful welcome pack, gave us the lowdown on the area and left us to it with there phone number in our hand.The views from the patio area are breathtaking and visibly changed as the day rolls on. Internet connected. There is golf to hand and wonderful walks all over the immediate area. It is well based for touring the area.

Got a little lost on the way but once we got our we discovered just what we had hoped for. A beautiful home from home with the most stunning views over the course, valley and Mountains which constantly changed with the daylight. Short trip to Turre for shopping, bars and eateries or move in to Mojacar Pueblo, Mojacar Playa, Garrucha and Vera (a car is a must!!) for much more variety. I can heartily recommend Finca Listonero which is just round the corner from the house, it's only open a few times a week but it really is lovely and the service exceptional. We had a really pleasant stay for ten nights (unfortunately we had three days of some of the most impressive rain and thunderstorms, but it didn't dampen our spirit, if anything it just proved a more dramatic view from the verandah!! Thanks Clive for a really lovely stay in your home, we can't rate it highly enough and would recommend a stay to anyone who just wants to get away from it all
Home from home
So peaceful, no screaming children wonderful, the house is lovely everything you could want or need is there. You are given a welcome pack and if you need anything they will get it for you, so no running to the shops. The view over the golf course is lovely. You can sit on the patio and relax. The Golf club has wonderful food and wine and you can walk there. We really enjoyed ourselves, you do need a car to get to Turre for the big shop. The owner makes everything so easy for you well worth a visit.
Our week at Cortijo Grande
After we finally found our turn off to Cortijo Grande (the sign is set way back from the road, and if you are unfamiliar with the area it was difficult to find), our week in Karen 2 was wonderful. Peaceful, relaxing home from home. Mojacar beach is only 20 mins drive and the town of Turre was only a few minutes where we bought our provisions. The property was spotless and well maintained and was very well equipped for all our needs. Jackie met us on arrival and was very friendly (despite she had to hang around longer than expected due to us not finding the place), she showed us around the house and how things operated. The hot tub was surplus to our needs and when we did try it out it was refreshing. If we ventured into the area again we would use this property and would recommend it to friends. Thanks Clive for a tranquil stay in your holiday home..Martin and Maralyn.
It is our 4th time to Cortijo Grande, and it never disappoints. Have had a wonderful 10 days at Clive's house, which is fully equipped inside and out with, of course, the VIEW. Would recommend for a very relaxing holiday with all the facilities within easy reach
So glad we came!
We were looking at reviews about Clive's townhouse on Cortijo Grande and nearly didn't book after reading a particularly damning tirade. But SO glad we did! We have stayed in another townhouse in the same row on a previous visit and have to say that we found Clive's property to be better value and very attractively appointed with good quality furniture and fittings. The house overlooks the magnificent views of the golf course which unusually, after a wet start to the year, was looking extremely green and lush. We have to say that these views are what have drawn us to this particular location and they - added to the fact that there are two restaurants within walking distance, make it a winner in our eyes. Make sure you visit the restaurant in the old clubhouse and see if you can help Angela and her brother Antonio with their current jigsaw challenge.
There are only a couple of things which we would point out to Clive - the light switch in the main bathroom needs attention as does the main light switch in the kitchen - both working but a little loose. As you say Clive, if tenants don't mention these to you, they can be missed and not rectified.
So, if you want peace and quiet, wonderful panoramic views, good food and great company within walking distance, beaches only 15/20 minutes away and value for money - this is the place for you.
Thank you again Clive and Jackie

Turre house holiday
The house was clean and ready on arrival. So clean in fact that I walked out on to the patio and I walked into the glass door leading to the outside because I thought it was open. No real harm done except for my pride.
The weather was not the best but expected for the time of year. There are lots of nice eating places that are not too far away and the house was comfortable and a Reasonable size for the holiday. It seemed like the owners had made the place as ready to move in from the beginning.
The bins are a short walk from the property and the locals are friendly.
The views from the patio are just stunning and I could have sat looking at the mountains forever. I would recommend this house at it was a good price and is in a very clean and well furnished condition. The communication from the owner before we came over was a great help and I would return again when the weather is better.
