Overview

About the property

Comfortable and quiet accommodation, 1 or 2 bedrooms, 15 minutes beaches

Cortijo la Tenada is an ecological country house split into comfortable and peaceful fully equipped apartments.

The Cortijo has been restored in 2010 following the principles of bioclimatic architecture and using environmentally friendly materials. The hot water and underfloor heating are powered by solar panels. The shower water is purified and are used for watering the garden.

The house hasn't air conditioning, the walls of earth and hemp are very insulating and they delay the entrance of the heat in summer and the exit of the same one in winter. On July and August the house maintains a temperature of 26-28 degrees when the outside can reach 34 degrees. At night the temperature usually drops about 8-10 degrees, cross ventilation significantly improves comfort inside the house reducing the temperature by 1 or 2 degrees.

We offer 2 types of accommodation:

Apartment Olivo (sleeps 2 + 2 on sofa bed) - consists of 1 double bedroom, 1 bathroom, living fully equipped kitchen, shaded terrace of over 20 m2.

Unfortunately this was not our sort of holiday.

  • 2 of 5

We arrived in Almeria with only one suitcase, Got in our Hired Car which is a must !! We were not given Directions to our place, so before we left home we had to Google maps and take with us, these directions were of no use, It took us hours, eventually Umberto came and met us and we followed him to the Property. On arrival we had No Air Conditioning and No fan, It must have been 40 Degrees in the Apartment and its a Solid Concrete Apartment and we couldn't open the Main Windows as there were lots of Flies about. There was No Cold Water in the Fridge in Fact I am not sure the Fridge was even on, We were advised to drink the Tap water, This is literally on Arrival. So we had to go off and Get Geoff some shorts due to no luggage and a Electric Fan to cool the room down and get some Bottled Water. Baring in Mind we had been on the Road since 3.30 am this is now 4 pm in the afternoon trying to find the nearest Shopping Town to get Food as well; as there are No local shops or Bars. The Scenery is Beautiful you feel like your in the Desert which is great. The Pool Area is very small and it;s mainly Occupied by Families, again Not what My Husband and I wanted as we were expecting a Quiet Rural Retreat, There are Plenty of Beaches to Visit they are Busy and some are very hard to Access especially West of San Jose. Umberto and his Family were All very Kind and Helpful. If you have booked a Vacation be aware that it is Very Rural and Very Basic, but pleasant.

un sitio incréible en el medio del deserte y cerca de las playas

  • 5 of 5

Umberto y su esposa son encantadoras. los habitaciones estan muy agradables (que serían más agradables con ventiladores para el verano). Esta es una maravillosa casa para venir a la familia o pareja; la piscina es preciosa, con vistas al desierto Cabo. Muchas gracias por sus momentos

Nos ha encantado

  • 5 of 5

Buena casa, amplia, cuidada, limpia, cómoda y, con decoración sencilla y agradable. Hemos estado 5 amigos durante 3 días y nos ha encantado a todos. Para volver seguro. Los dueños, también han sido encantadores y amables.

Está en medio de la nada, se ha de llegar con localizador, sobre todo si llegas de noche, pero ahí está parte de su encanto, que estás en medio de la naturaleza. De todos modos nada queda lejos. Estoy segura que volveremos, pues el cabo de Gata se lo merece.

Un lugar especial

  • 5 of 5

Elegimos este alojamiento buscando un lugar tranquilo y un poco aislado pero bien comunicado y fue un acierto total. En pocos sitios nos hemos sentido tan relajados como aquí. El cortijo está en medio de la naturaleza sin ninguna edificación alrededor. Es un placer sentarte por las noches a contemplar el inmenso cielo estrellado y disfrutar del silencio.

Las instalaciones son tal como las muestran las fotografías. Los apartamentos muy amplios, decorados con gusto, muy luminosos y frescos. Las camas son comodísimas y la cocina tenía el menaje necesario y productos básicos (aceite, vinagre, sal, azúcar, especias…) que se agradece no tener que comprar para una estancia corta.

Los propietarios son muy cálidos y atentos a lo que puedas necesitar, pero al mismo tiempo, discretos y respetuosos de tu intimidad.

Acabamos de regresar y ya estamos buscando un hueco en el calendario para volver.

Saludos de Teresa y Jorge y uno especial de Iria para Nuno y Leo.

El trato de los propietarios es inmejorable, son muy cercanos y atentos a informarte de lo que necesites y al mismo tiempo discretos y respetuosos de tu intimidad.

El Cortijo la Tenada is an ecological country house split into comfortable and peaceful fully equipped apartments.

The farmhouse has been restored in 2010 following the principles of bioclimatic architecture and using environmentally friendly materials. The hot water and underfloor heating are powered by solar panels. The shower water is purified and are used for watering the garden.

The farmhouse is located in the rural heart of the Natural Park Cabo de Gata-Nijar, near the Cortijo del Fraile (known as 'Blood Wedding' by Federico García Lorca) and only 15 minutes from the beaches of Las Negras and Rodalquilar.

This is a very special, immersed in a unique landscape, drawn by soft dyed warm earth tones and subtle green hills of vegetation. Here tranquility, calm and breathe peace, but also energy and life.
