High and happy

5 of 5
A lovely,spacious cortijo with everything for ease and comfort. It has a very private and attractive garden and a beautiful pool.We had a brilliant 2 weeks with perfect weather and spent our time by the pool,and walking around the high and magical landscape. We only went out to go to the shops for provisions. Evenings we spent making barbeques, drinking lots of the local wine and star gazing. This is exactly how we like to spend our time on holiday.. Our hosts,Nigel and Louise were great. We would see them early in the day, for pool cleaning, and much warm and humourous conversation, after which they entirely respected our privacy. It was really good to have them close by, as it is an isolated place,,so if anything went wrong we could call on them. We had to do this once when we got lost up in the hills and I fell down a steep slope, and my wife put her hand in a wasps nest! We were promptly rescued and told that we weren't allowed out tomorrow! This was all highly entertaining. We also collectively walked up the mountain and watched the lunar eclipse together. That was magic! The location is beautiful, a valley surrounded on all sides by craggy rock and bush with paths climbing through and across the landscape, and really high with views across to Sierra Nevada. Walking up and out from the cortijo is very steep for 15 minutes, after which it gets easier. Driving up or down again is challenging. Not advisable at night! If you like nature,a bit of the wild, peace, beauty and a bit of keep fit activity, this is a perfect place to stay!
