Gorgeous cortijo with amazing views of the surrounding olive groves

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming and beautifully decorated home. We combined long hikes in the countryside, visit to La Alhamra, skiing in the Sierra Nevada with breakfast & lunch on one of the pretty terraces around the house. We hope to come back soon!

Great place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home with stunning views and so much peace and quiet. We stayed here 8 years ago and enjoyed it, but since then it is under new ownership and the upgrades are really quite lovely. The coffee and eggs on arrival were much appreciated as we arrived on a Sunday and very few stores are open that day for stocking the larder. The bedding was quite comfortable and the packets of toiletries provided were really quite a nice touch. Montefrio is only about 15 minutes from the house, so it's easy to get into town as needed and many other villages are also easy day trips from there. My wife and I, our two kids, and my mother all stayed quite comfortably and everyone had their own comfortable bedrooms.

A few words of caution: The road to the house is a little frightening in places, but is quite manageable once you get used to it. If you are going during the cold season, be prepared to build and maintain fires. These are not problems so much as bits of information. The bedrooms all have electric heaters, but the living areas need fire to stay warm.

All in all, really quite a lovely home and terrific place to get away from it all. Thanks to Anna for such lovely accommodations.

Most amazing place in the hills......

  • 5 of 5

We were completely blown away with how beautiful the area and house is, and definitely will be back. We felt so at home we didn't want to leave. The house is extremely cosy, well furnished, and bathrooms & bedrooms all clean beautifully decorated. For december It was extremely warm with wood burners, so excellent in winter, but would love to visit in the summer too. Great walking country. We will be going again for sure and recommending this to all of our friends. Wonderful hosts.
