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 house 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 house 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

We all had a fantastic time at Cortijo Las Rosas last month, we are a party of cyclists from who knew Steve from when he lived in Kent. We were lucky to have such fine weather early in the season, and the roads were quiet (if a little bit hilly!) for cycling.



The Casitas were an excellent base and being early in the season we were thankful for the wood burning stove for the chilly evenings.



Thanks very much to Gillian, Mary-Lynne and Steve for a fantastic stay - the swimming pool should be warming up nicely now. — with Peter Rowe and 3 others.

Idyllic, peaceful, comfortable place in the hills

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to Las Rosas, and we hope it will not be our last. The property itself is lovely and the location is wonderful. We stayed in Casita Perdiz - the closest to the pool. It is well appointed, comfortable and stays cool in the heat (in as much as anywhere can in Andalucia). Being on a hilltop Las Rosas is never oppressively hot. The property and the grounds are kept in excellent shape by Gillian and Marylynne, as is the pool. We spent hours watching house martins swoop down to catch insects from the water! The terrace gets the sun all day, but also offers plenty of shade. In the evening and at night it is a delight - no sound but the cicadas, and brilliant stars.

For me an added bonus is that Steve, one of the owners, is a keen cyclist and lent me a bike and led me on a couple of fabulous rides, including one round Lake Iznajar. Its not cycling for the inexperienced, being hilly and hot, but the scenery is beautiful, the roads are empty, the gradients are mostly reasonable (7-10%) and the coffee stops in the nearby villages are a treat. And Steve is excellent company on a ride!

Iznajar, the nearest village, is striking, with its white buildings and obligatory hill-top church. There are some tremendous views from the village over the lake and good places to eat, particularly the tapas bar in the patio at the top of the village. There is a lot of good food to be had in the vicinity. Gillian and Marylynne are reliable sources of recommendations for places to eat, from local cheap and cheerful to Michelin standard cooking. And the house kitchens are well equipped should you, like us, enjoy cooking. The welcome pack is recommended

The Cortijo is well sited for visiting Granada and Cordoba (both must-sees). Antequera is also well worth a visit. Having done that last year we pretty much stayed put (except for my rides and one trip to Cordoba) and chilled out.

All in all Las Rosas has quickly become one of our favourite places. Thanks to Gillian, Marylynne and Steve for being excellent hosts. Hope to see you all again soon!

Cortijo Las Rosas, Casita Perdiz

  • 5 out of 5
Cortijo Las Rosas surpassed all expectations. If it's peace and tranquillity you require, then look no further. Gillian and Marylynne are absolutely lovely and the love they have for their beautiful Cortijo shows in even the smallest of details. Spotlessly clean, wonderful linen and gardens the create envy! So much thought has been put into making sure we had everything we needed and both ladies were on hand for any advice and information. Would very much like to return.

Peaceful casitas among the olive groves.

  • 4 out of 5
Deep in the Andalusian countryside among the olive groves, our casita met all expectations, the property was clean, well maintained, and the owners could not have been more helpful, thinking of everything one could need, in the kitchen, heating and a washing machine. Venturing to local towns and further afield to Cordoba and Granada with their excellent directions was very helpful. we would definitely recommend these casitas to friends and family.

Perfectly peaceful simple luxury

  • 5 out of 5
We unreservedly recommend Casita Perdiz at Cortijo las Rosas and wish we were still there. It feels a long way from anywhere, though is in fact 15 minute (uphill!) drive from Iznajar. On arrival we discovered a simple comfortable house, perfectly cool in the Andalusian heat. Stylishly decorated, comfortable beds and great bathrooms. The pool area is particularly lovely with a wonderful view across the valley. At night we sat out there and heard only silence. Both Gillian and Marylynne were welcoming and full of information on places to visit and to eat. Try Casa Piolas is in Algarinejo for Michelin starred quality food at around €50 per head or Tasca Patio De Las Comedias in Iznajar - great tapas. Also on a food theme, we highly recommend the welcome package on offer – high quality local ingredients which kept us going for a day and half. You should also take advantage of the massage and therapy service offered by Sarah Jackson – a treat after a day’s travelling.

Prachtige plek, mooie huisjes, een aanrader !

  • 5 out of 5
Gillian & Marylynne, twee Engelse dames, zorgen voor een zeer uitgebreid en welkom ontvangst. De huisjes zijn stijlvol ingericht en van alle gemakken voorzien. Iedere huisje heeft een eigen patio met BBQ en de kamers zijn ruim. De omgeving is prachtig; dit is de ideale plek om een paar dagen helemaal niets te doen, aan het zwembad te hangen, te genieten van het uitzicht, de tuin, de omgeving en de Spaanse zon. Het is ook een goede lokatie voor dagtochtjes naar Cordoba en Granada. Een aanrader!

Owner's Response: We would just like to provide a translation for our English speaking guests!

Beautiful place, beautiful cottages, highly recommended!

Gillian & Marylynne provide a very comprehensive and welcome reception. The cottages are stylishly furnished and fully equipped. Each cottage has a private patio with BBQ and rooms are spacious. The setting is beautiful, this is the ideal place to spend a few days doing nothing at all, to hang out, enjoy the view, the garden, the environment and the Spanish sun by the pool. It is also a good location for day trips to Cordoba and Granada. Highly recommended!

A lovely place to relax and enjoy.

  • 4 out of 5
Cortijo las Rosas is a beautifully kept oasis amidst the olive tree covered hills. My husband, John, and I spent a week in April alternating trips to Cordoba, Priego de Cordoba and Ronda with days relaxing poolside. Gillian and Marylynne were very helpful with any queries we had. The accommodations were above average.....clean, comfortable with many extras not usually found in self-catering rentals. I would suggest getting the Welcome Pack as we were very happy to be able to stay put for a day after finding our way through the hills. I would recommend this accomodation to anyone who is seeking a quiet place in the countryside that is also convenient to the cities and towns of Andalucia.

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
