Nunca he visto una casa rural con tanta esencia, fenomenal..perfectamente equipada, guardando todo el encanto de su época pero acomodado para hoy día. Fuimos un grupo de 12 amigos, alquilando la casa de 10 personas y la de 2, comunicadas por el patio. Unos exteriores inmejorables, hasta con un grifo de cerveza que nos prepararon para nosotros. Y por la noche super a gusto charlando alrededor de la acogedora chimenea. Repetiremos en verano y con los niños, que también es genial para ir con ellos, hasta con pequeño parque infantil. Cien por cien recomendable, muy limpio, equipado y el trato con las propietarias perfecto. Además, a un paso de Granada.
Bonito y encantador cortijo, aun mejor que en las fotos, limpio, con todos los detalles y elementos para sentirte como en casa, pero en plena naturaleza. Muy tranquilo. Trato inmejorable con las propietarias. Lo recomiendo y repetimos. Ideal para familias grandes, fuimos 20 todos muy bien acomodados, muy amplio y con espacios diferenciados para grandes y pequeños. Además a un paso de Granada, aunque una vez allí, no apetece salir a ningún lado. Gracias familia!!
Nos hemos llevado una grata sorpresa con este cortijo andaluz. Es la primera vez que hacemos turismo rural y realmente ha sido fantástico. Hemos estado un grupo de 17 personas, lo hemos pasado fenomenal. La casa tiene de todo, es preciosa, confortable, no le falta nada. Usamos de día la piscina y encendimos las barbacoas con productos comprados en el pueblo, y con el grifo de cerveza pasamos un día estupendo. De noche encendimos las chimeneas y fué fantástico.....
