Our beautiful little apartment is set over the main house and has a double bedroom with space for a travel cot for a baby or a single bed for a child, kitchen/sitting room and full bathroom as well as a private, shaded outdoor terrace where you can enjoy the amazing scenery and the sounds of birdsong. The pool area is just a few steps away with a large swimming pool and a smaller pool for toddlers as well as an outdoor shower. It is fenced for safety and has sun loungers and parasols so that you can relax and enjoy the sunshine or the shade!
There is ample on-site secure parking and we are fortunate to be just a short walk from the picturesque train station of Cortes de la Frontera. You can take the train to Ronda or further afield or pop in to one of the many great restaurants in the neighbouring villages for lunch and then either walk or take the train back.
In the nearest village of Estacion de Cortes, you will find a small supermarket, an excellent jamón shop, several bars serving very reasonably priced tapas and main meals and a hotel with a beautiful terrace for al fresco dining.
In the larger town of Cortes, which is 10 minutes away by car, you will find more supermarkets, bars and restaurants as well as several banks, the post office and a medical centre.
There are so many places to discover in this area! There are beautiful walks, horse-riding close by, gorgeous rivers, bike trails, yoga, massage and pilates, mosaicing classes and a wealth of historical and archeological sites to visit. The Costa del Sol and the Costa de la Luz are just one hour away and you can go whale and dolphin-watching near the Straits of Gibraltar or visit Gibraltar itself or kite-surf in Tarifa!
While there is plenty to do in the area, one of the nicest activities is to settle into the hammock in the shade of the walnut tree and relax!
