The cortijo is well appointed, beautifully situated and very welcoming. Bettina adds her personal hospitality and generosity without being in any way intrusive. There are numerous beautiful walks through the surrounding area, though plenty of stamina is needed. Lovely local villages to explore and plenty of nice places to eat. But, we could happily have just stayed around the villa, going for short walks and enjoying the lovely produce grown and shared by Bettina, and her ladies (the hens). We, as a couple, stayed in the villa with a friend and there was more than enough space for us to enjoy being together and also have times of privacy when wanted. The three of us will happily return when we can.

This villa has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. We have visited almunecar now for the past 7 years and this time was very special as my new husband and I got married there this year 😊 The villa was perfect for our young family and the hot tub was definitely my favourite. There was a few teething problems but they were quickly sorted out. The walk down the street was ok but it is a bit of a hike back up! We will certainly be back at casa da mar. Such beautiful memories of our wedding and special holiday. Also the views are spectacular 😍
