"Rural Spain at it's very best"
I visited in 2012 with my husband and a group of friends and we had an absolutely incredible time! WE LOVE Cortijo Las Olivas!! First of all Jess is an amazing host.. He left us to get on with our holiday but if ever we needed anything they were always available with some really great local knowledge! and the welcome pack was a lovely touch! The accomodation itself if beautifully decorated, cosy and very clean! we had the casita which overlooks the pool, and we used to love waking up in the morning to the sound of birds and the bright spanish sunshine! our friends took the Finca and Hacienda and had equally good reviews of their accommodation. Every apartment had flatscreen television which kept the kids entertained while we were having our siesta, not to mention the table tennis!!
The Pool is very large and is fed by a fresh water well!! meaning that you are swimming in crisp, clean mountain water!! i loved that idea, and the Courtyards are stunning... the place is in very good condition and you can tell that the owners treat it with all the special care of their hearts!
The local area is fantastic and there is lots to do! we took a trip to the Alhambra and Generalife which is well worth a visit!! especially if you are a keen photographer like myself! the Alhambra is only a 50 minute drive away and its straight motorway the whole way! closer to home is the sleepy white mountain top village of Iznajar which is surrounded by beautiful aquamarine lakes!!! the actual town is stunning!! white buildings with all the charm of the REAL Spain with beautifully tended gardens and a quaint little church with one hell of a view!! Also accessible from the cortijo is Malaga, Cordoba, Rhonda, Seville. I think that if you are looking for an exploration or relaxing holiday then Cortijo Las Olivas is a place to go! In fact i want to go back now!
Thank you Jess for a wonderful time!
