The name Alhambra comes from an Arabic root which means 'red or crimson castle', perhaps due to the hue of the towers and walls that surround the entire hill of La Sabica which by starlight is silver but by sunlight is transformed into gold. But there is another more poetic version, evoked by the Moslem analysts who speak of the construction of the Alhambra fortress 'by the light of torches', the reflections of which gave the walls their particular coloration. Created originally for military purposes, the Alhambra was an 'alcazaba' (fortress), an 'alcázar' (palace) and a small 'medina' (city), all in one. This triple character helps to explain many distinctive features of the monument.


The Great Mosque of Cordoba was considered a wonder of the medieval world by both Muslims and Christians. Built on a Visigothic site, which was probably the site of an earlier Roman temple, the Great Mosque of Cordoba was begun between 784 and 786 during the reign of 'Abd al-Rahman, who escaped from Syria to the Iberian Peninsula.

Most unique place I've ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for five nights during our honeymoon. We stayed at three others villas/hotels in other parts of Spain, but this was by far our favorite. In fact, I'm pretty well traveled - I've stayed in around 35 countries - and this was probably the most unique accommodations I've ever had.

The villa is a refurbished farmhouse, and its style is modern and Moroccan. It has the feel of luxury, yet isn't over the top. When we arrived, Jeff and Tish were there to greet us and show us around. They're a friendly couple from England that live in the nearby town. After helping us get settled, we followed them in our car into town since we needed to buy groceries. They were also quick to help during other days when we had a question.

The villa itself was clean and spotless when we checked in. It's clear that the owners take great pride in what they've done here. It has everything you could want - real fireplaces (with all the firewood you could want), a kitchen fully equipped, an outdoor gym, pool (being Nov it was a bit too cool for us to plunge), a stunning master bathroom, and a huge movie screen in its own room. The bedrooms are different and each have their own character. Again, this place is very unique. The villa is secluded, which was perfect for our honeymoon, and the scenery beautiful. You see olive groves on every side. One afternoon we grilled outside and just soaked in the views.

I've already told a few friends and family members that they have to stay here in the near future. I live in Miami and have seen many beautiful places. But there was something about this villa that captured me. We'll definitely be back!

What a Find!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a family holiday in Cortijo Bujio. I cannot recommend this place enough. A beautifully done up farm house overlooking the Sierra Nevada, with heaps of Andalucian charm coupled with modern day luxury. Add to this a ridiculously well sited swimming pool, supremely tasteful interior and every games facility (indoor and outdoor) you can think of and you get a holiday to remember. Tish and Jeff could not have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome (even putting up with an impromptu Flamenco show from our Flamenco obssessed 6 yr old daughter). We're already booking for next year...

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had 9 nights at Cortijo Bujilo, and I can say we were blown away by the place. It is actually more stunning than the photos led us to believe, which is saying something indeed. Every room was spotlessly clean, and it seemed like everything had been thought about, everything was catered for. We visited with some friends with children, and the table tennis, huge games room, pool and basketball hoop went down an absolute treat! The owners are really friendly and made it all a stress-free experience. I really cant recommend the place enough. The kitchen was great as well!

A wonderful house in rural Granada/Andalucia

  • 5 of 5

The Cortijo Bujio is a really beautiful house with some extraordinary features (double-height main bathroom in tower with beamed ceiling and a great view from the bath is only one example).

The pool is exceptionally-sited and has a good barbecue and sheltered seating area.

The owners, Tish and Jeff, are extremely helpful and friendly. They take care not to intrude.

Excellent kitchen with very good equipment.

Many amenities which add to quality of stay including a great TV cinema room and a little gym with a decent running machine and various other pieces of equipment.

Views of hills are wonderful and the surroundings (olive farms) provide a lovely atmosphere for a holiday.

An absolutely excellent holiday destination which we recommend 100%

Stuart and Sheila

Wat een fantastische sfeervol verblijf!

  • 4 of 5

Wij logeerden eind mei 2012 met 8 volwassenen (4 stellen) in deze bijzondere villa in Andalucia van Jeff en Tish. Wij hadden het hele huis voor onszelf (kamers kunnen ook los worden geboekt) en hebben er een heerlijke week doorgebracht. Het huis ligt op 8 kilometer afstand van Montefrio, een prachtig Andalusisch bergdorp en volgens ons het meest bijzonder in de wijde omgeving, echter met auto zijn Granada en de Sierra Nevada prima te bereiken (1 tot 1,5 uur).

De aankomst bij Cortijo Bujio is direct al heel bijzonder; COrtijo Bujio ligt op een 'privéberg' waar je over een klein onverhard weggetje in ongeveer anderhalve kilometer vanaf de geasfalteerde weg naartoe rijdt. Prachtige uitzichten over de vallei aan weerszijden met op de achtergrond de Sierra Nevada toppen (met sneeuw!!).

Je rijdt door het hek eerst langs het zwembad wat verscholen ligt tussen de palmen. Er is ruime parkeergelegenheid. De tuin is prachtig aangelegd en vanaf het terras naast het huis is een overweldigend uitzicht. Wij raakten hierover de hele week niet uitgepraat....

Het huis is van origine een boerderij (Cortijo) en is door de gastvrije Jeff en Tish volledig opgeknapt. Zijn hebben de authentieke stijl behouden maar het is, zoals in de beschrijving te lezen valt van alle gemakken -en meer!- voorzien. Wij zaten graag in de eetkamer waar door een grote glaspartij een prachtig uitzicht is over de vallei.De comfortabele slaapkamers zijn allemaal erg mooi vorm gegeven, met ieder een eigen balkon/tuin en veel privacy. In het huis is een centrale -koele- kamer en een zeer riant uitgeruste keuken (waar zelfs een kok geboekt kon worden voor een paella bij aankomst bijvoorbeeld.) Er is een speelruimte met grote HD beamer, gameconsoles (PS2, Wi en Xbox) en zelfs een waterpijp! Er zijn houtkachels in de centrale vertrekken waar we 's avonds in de eetkamer meerdere keren gebruik van hebben gemaakt.

Het zwembad ligt wat afgezonderd van het huis op de heuvel en heeft een lounge en er is een bar met tweede barbeque (beneden bij het huis op het terras is ook een barbeque aanwezig). Wij lagen in namiddag vaak bij het zwembad in de zon, met een licht briesje, een coronaatje en een muziekje vanuit de ipod speler (op iedere kamer staat er een) vanaf de bar... Genieten!

In de zomer van 2012 hopen Jeff en Tish een SPA, kinderspeelplaats en uitbreiding van de fitnessruimte te realiseren. Dan is het helemaal compleet....

Relax & Enjoy!!!

  • 5 of 5

My very good friend, Bushra I went away for a few days on a long awaited relaxing 'girlie' holiday and we were definitely NOT disappointed at all! As it was October we were worried that the weather wasn’t going to be great but we were blessed with lovely sunshine throughout our time there. Bushra even managed to catch some sun!!

From the moment we arrived at Cortijo Bujio, the owners Tish & Jeff were very helpful, accommodating and nothing was too much for them. They spent time showing us around their beautiful villa and answered all our questions which we had lots off!

The outside view was truly breathtaking and absolutely peaceful, just what we wanted and needed! The villa was far more beautiful and serene then the photo’s shown on the site and you can truly only appreciate it once you are here. The four bedrooms were stunning and they all had their own individual styles. The ‘La Torre’ room has an extra large bed, a lounge area and a huge en-suite bathroom with the striking sunken bath with an amazing view. The only problem was that we had to fight for the room and of course I won!

The rest of the villa was just as beautiful, from the dinning area with its outside views of the mountains in the distance to the cosy comfortable living area and the relaxing cinema/games room. The outside courtyard with its views & a cup of fresh coffee was sheer bliss! The pool area was perfectly picturesque. In addition to all the above there was an open-air gym and a play area for young children.

There are many other extra activities/entertainment that can be arranged through Tish & Jeff. For Example: In house massage, horse riding and paella night to name a few.

The short drive down to the town was pleasant and the locals were very friendly, considering neither Bushra nor I spoke a word of Spanish! There was a round church in the middle of the town which was very beautiful.

The drive to Granada was pleasant and easy to get to with Jeff’s great directions. We spent the day there visiting the beautiful La Alhambra Palace and enjoyed a traditional hammam experience.

Our relaxing girlie holiday was full of good food, lots of laughter & relaxation in a perfect peaceful setting, up in the mountains tucked away from others.

Thank you, Tish and Jeff for making our stay a pleasant and memorable one. We will definitely be visiting again, only next time we’ll bring a few more girlies with us!!

For those wishing to absorb some of the local Spanish culture, the picturesque whitewashed village of Montefrio is just 15 minutes drive away. Set in a dramatic location, the village is flanked by two hilltop churches, which dominate the skyline. It is a site of cultural interest, the Alcazaba fortress ruins can still be found at its highest points. Near the village, which has retained much of its Moorish character, there is a vast archaeological site known as Las Penas de Los Gitanos, famous for its prehistoric tombs and remains of Roman and Visigoth settlements. As much as it is rooted in history and a timeless agrarian lifestyle typical of the region, Montefrio is also a working town with its feet firmly in the present; it has a wide selection of shops, bars, restaurants, banks and other amenities, and a thriving, close- knit community.
