Cortijo El Campillo

Country house El Campillo, holiday house on the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, it is over a 100 years old house, which has been furbished keeping the ecological and historical points of the traditional style. It is equipped with all necessary comfort and it offers the best conditions in a wonderful area to spend a relaxing holiday. All rooms have a bathroom and a private terrace with views over the far valley.

In order to have a cosy ambience, there is an under floor heating system for the winter, and ceiling fans on the first floor bedrooms for the summer. There is a fully equipped kitchen available for the guests, with a dining area and a terrace with a wood fired oven, as well as a common room on the basement with a library, TV, DVD, table football, etc. In Cortijo El Campillo it seems that the time stops. Here you will just listen in the morning the cock crowing, and in the evening the screech-owls, grills and cicadas and occasionally a donkey. The perfect place to completely relax.

Great hosts and tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

We can only say that it has been a fantastic holidays. We spent 4 days in "El Campillo", where we felt at home.

We had a homemade breakfast, great morning chats with the rest of the gest, great advices for where to go or what to visit, you can have lunch or dinner in the house.

Although accesible, you feel like you are in the middle of no where.

We will repeat next year!

Thank you!

Tim & Carmen

Schöne ruhige Ferienwohnung, idyllisch gelegen. Die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und stehen mit Rat und Tat jederzeit zur Verfügung. Es sind tolle Tourenvorschläge ausgearbeitet.

Das Naturschutzgebiet Cabo deGata ist traumhaft schön. Würde immer wieder kommen.

A little paradise between the desert and the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week last September in ¨ Cortijo el Campillo¨ and the truth is that it was worth venturing to discover this hidden place. You have to propose yourself to find it but once there it's worth the effort, the place is a haven of peace surrounded of nature all around and with an incredible quietness. In the morning we heard the birds, partridges coming to the house, the donkeys of the house. At night we could hear the crickets, small owls and we could watch - as they have no light pollution - the starry sky so beautiful that they have there. It´s amazing! The rooms are spacious, very clean and tastefully decorated. To highlight the friendliness of the owner, Annika, and her nice personality without forgetting her ¨humongous ¨ breakfast that gives you energy until the evening. Annika and family thank so very much. We will come back! Gonglo
