Originally 2 rural houses Cortijo Los Pelaes has been sympathetically rebuilt to the highest of specifications using a blend of old and new Andalusia styles. With 378 sq/m of internal space & 4 private terraces it offers luxury holiday accommodation for 2 families in complete comfort.
The house has been furnished and equipped to the highest of standards and provides a true 'home away from home' experience, a 9m private pool with stunning mountains as the backdrop and an expansive paved pool surround and garden terracing. The Cortijo is approached up a short track which sees minimal traffic other than the occasional farmer on his tractor. Olive groves and mountains make up the scenery with the village of Rosario in the distance. Rosario has all the necessary amenities including petrol, bank, supermarkets, butchers, bakers, tapas bars, and restaurants.
We are one of the few properties in the area officially certified by Ministry of Tourism in 2016 as a 'Rural tourism house' of the highest standard.

Coast Beach: We are 30 mins north of Malaga and the busy tourist destinations of Costa de Del Sol. Waterparks, beaches, Scuba diving, international boutiques and nightlife abound.
Skiing: Only 1 hours drive and you reach the skiing worlds best kept secret - Sierra Nevada. As Europe's most southerly ski resort with extensive snow making machines you will enjoy sun drenched skiing with views of the Atlas mountains in Africa. The season runs through until early April and ski schools in Sierra Nevada speak English and are very friendly. The owners can recommend suitable establishments.
Outdoor activities: The local countryside affords the traveler great opportunities to discover Spain's wildlife, bird life and fauna. The landscape is ideal for walking, cycling, fishing and horse riding.
In summer you can climb the second highest mountain in Spain; El Veleta @ 3335m in the Sierra Nevada range.
Flamingos and storks breed in the surrounding lakes. Trout fishing and caviar can be found in nearby Riofrio or you can simply climb the mountains in front of the property or just wander the endless olive groves.
