There is seating outside in the courtyard for eating and a barbeque.

About Marylynne and Gillian

Marylynne and Gillian are well traveled sisters, born in South Africa, schooled in the U.K. and who lived in the Middle East much of their lives. As a mother who self-catered with two children many times, Marylynne has equipped the casitas to the highest level.

Marylynne and Gillian purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Marylynne and Gillian chose Iznajar

Cortijo las Rosas is situated uniquely placed to provide easy access to the monuments of the great Andalucian cities and yet also give you peace and tranquility beside the pool. A place which gives you a mix of cultural sightseeing and total relaxation.

What makes this cottage unique

Situated in the middle of olive groves with wonderful views from the pool side and many of the casitas. Bird song rather than the noise of traffic.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Cortojo las Rosas was a treasure of a find. Gilly and Marylynne were great hosts. This was our first holiday with our baby and they catered for our every need including lighting our log fire! The accommodation was full of character and comfort. The views of the Andalucian hills were breathtaking. Great location for some peace but also for good day trips to Granada and Cordoba to name a few. We look forward to returning one day soon!

A special way to experience Spain.

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Las Rosa units located atop the Iznajar hills. We loved the setting, the view, the central location to Cordoba, Ronda, Grenada and Nerja. All a day trip away. We loved the olive scent in the air, the birds, the night sky, and the quiet mountain setting. Wonderful paved roads, perfect for walking, bicycling or a daily jog.
The casita was very clean, well stocked, comfortable and private. The pool and grounds are peaceful and the view is one of the best in Spain.
We have thought about how great it would be to rent all three units with friends or family for a personal vacation. It is the perfect place to do a road or mountain bike vacation with bicycling friends. For the non bikers, the pool is a place where family and friends could enjoy each other, and there is a small village within walking distance, not to mention the above day trips for any interest.
The hosts were helpful and attentive. They care about their guest property and work very hard to keep the property up to a five star standard. We hope some day to visit with them again.
( The casita Libre has lower ceilings down stairs if you are a tall person. The upstairs is vaulted. My husband is 6 ft. 3 inches and he did all right. If any taller, I recommend one of the other two units. However, it is a very authentic casita experience)

Heaven in Andalucia.

  • 5 out of 5
If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy a truly Andalusian experience then don't miss Cortijo Las Rosas. The place is just amazing, great "casita", you can go and explore the surrounding cities of Cordoba and Granada or just stay in your "patio" and enjoy a bottle of wine with bird chirping as the only distraction. Thanks for the warm welcome of the owners and their helpful information provided. We will go back for sure!!!

Lovely stay

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cortijo las Rojas. Gillian and Marylynne were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Our casita was perfect--simple and charming and with all of the amenities we needed. We loved the pool and the beautiful surroundings. All in all--a great visit. We would highly recommend it and hope to return someday!

Une location à retenir

  • 5 out of 5
Nous sommes restés une semaine chez Marylynne et Gillian.
Avant d'arriver nous étions déjà sûrs d'être bien accueillis car elles nous ont envoyé beaucoup de mails très sympas avec des recommandations très utiles.
L'arrivée chez elles grâce à leurs indications était donc très facile.
Après un accueil très chaleureux nous avons donc découvert cette ancienne ferme magnifiquement restaurée et d'une propreté exemplaire.
Nous avons apprécié les attentions et les conseils de nos hôtes tout au long de la semaine.
C'est une très bonne location que nous vous recommandons.
Christelle, Sylvain et les enfants.

Kleines Paradies

  • 5 out of 5
Anfang October waren meine Frau und ich Gäste im Casita Liebre. Wir verbrachten 14 wundervolle Tage, weit weg von Lärm und Stress. Die Gastgeberinnen waren extrem aufmerksam und fürsorglich, ihr Willkommenspaket war mehr als reichlich und wunderbar zusammengestellt. Auch die Restaurant- und Besichtigungsvorschläge waren zahlreich und zutreffend.
In den zwei Wochen konnten wir sowohl die Umgebung erforschen als auch die Highlights in Andalusien besuchen. Dies erforderte einige Fahrerei, aber auch die hat in der verkehrsarmen und ruhigen Umgebung viel Spaß gemacht.
Das Quartier war perfekt eingerichtet, in der Küche waren alle Gewürze und Küchengeräte opulent vorhanden. Die Einrichtung war individuell und geschmackvoll. Nach dem Besichtigungsprogramm des Tages luden Pool und Terrasse zur Erholung ein. Es war ein perfekter Urlaub.
Kleiner Tipp: ich bin mit über zwei Meter etwas lang geraten, da ist das "Hasenhaus" mit seinen niedrigen Decken nicht die schlaueste Wahl.

Characteristic and well maintained

  • 5 out of 5
A late review, but still needed to be written.

We stayed 6 days in Casita Liebre, as starting point for day trips.
Pros:
Warm charming place with very characteristic details, clean and well maintained with loving care.
- complete kitchen with quality utensils
- spacious and wonderful bedrooms and ditto bathrooms (one room was really big with very large bathroom),
- nice little living room with TV, and a stack of info on Andalucia and places to go
- swimming pool with wonderful view on the valley with olive groves, abundance of pool toys.
- quiet (absolute absence of traffic sounds)
- privacy
- owners are very helpful

Cons:
- quite remote if you want to use the place as starting point for day trips (you need about 45-50 minutes before you are on the highway). When you intend to stay at the property, it is just perfect.
- wireless connection was very weak

All together we really enjoyed the stay at Cortijo las Rosas, a gem in Andalucia

By the way:do try a rafting session at the Rio Genil (www.raftingsaltarios.com): beautiful and fun.

Owner's Response: All our guests to date have enjoyed and combined days round the pool with day trips to Granada (1 hour 15 minutes), Malaga (1 hour 15 minutes), Cordoba (1 hour 15 minutes) and many other lovely towns and cities in the area. Unfortunately, if you want uninterrupted views of the olive groves and an absolute absence of traffic noise, your location has to be a bit remote!! On balance our guests seem to love the contrast of busy day trips to the beautiful towns and cities of Andalucia and the absolute peace and quiet (and lack of pollution) of our fantastic location.

Ideally situated, it can be reached with a journey of about 1-1/2 hours from Malaga and a little less from Granada Airport. It is also located on the crossroads between all the major cities in Andalucia, allowing for day trips to Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Malaga as well as the towns and beaches of the Costa del Sol.

Set up in the mountains some 8 km from the town of Iznajar, Cortijo Las Rosas is located close to the largest lake in Anadalucia. This provides us with an inland beach right on the edge of the Subbetica, which is a national park dotted with those beautiful ‘white villages’.

Other Activities: bird watching

Notes:
Outside there is a large private courtyard planted with jasmine, lavender and herbs, surrounded by traditional high white walls. You are not overlooked by the other casitas. There is outside seating and shade is provided by a large umbrella for hot summer days. A barbeque allows you to make the most of the outside living for which sunny Andalucia is justifiably famous. Although the peaceful situation is ideal for the elderly and infirm, both bedrooms are upstairs and there is a sloped cobbled appraoch to the Cortijo.
