Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Cortijo La Nava is a traditional Andalucian Cortijo (farmhouse) located in the spanish countryside at the gateway to Seville, Granada & Cordoba, yet only 40 minutes from Malaga and Granada airports and the beaches of the Costa del Sol. The Cortijo is a beautifully restored rustic farmhouse surrounded by rolling olive groves, mountains and spectacular scenery. It has four bedrooms, two with en-suite shower-rooms, a family bathroom , a traditional Andalucian kitchen, Dining Room, a comfortable Lounge and sleeps 8. Two bedrooms are large enough to accommodate another bed so for an extra charge, we can sleep 10 (14 if rented in conjunction with the Granary).
Activities you can enjoy in this beautiful area of Spain include sight-seeing, walking, cycling, bird watching, climbing, horse riding or just relaxing by the pool, we can even arrange art lessons if you'd like to try something different. Villanueva del Trabuco is a typical white walled pueblo with a pleasant central square and enjoys a slower pace of life, unless you visit during one of the many fiestas when things get very lively. You're bound to meet the local goatherds as they tend their flocks in the area.
There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, all serving the Spanish speciality - tapas and plain but good quality food. You will even find chivo(goat) on the menu. The many restaurants even include Italian & Mexican.
