Cortijo Romero, new for 2014, is a lovingly restored, fully furnished, self catering farmhouse, with exclusive use of a small private pool, in the heart of the stunning unspoilt countryside of rural inland Andalucia in Southern Spain. Set on the edge of the small village of Venta Micena, near Orce in the province of Granada and with far reaching views to the mountains, the house is in a beautiful location. Inside the ceilings are high and the rooms are airy and spacious. There are three bedrooms, a large sitting-room with wood burning stove, spacious dining room, character kitchen and bathroom. Outside are enclosed courtyard gardens with a barbecue and pool. To the front is a tree filled field, perfect for picnicking. The property also has the benefit of free wifi. As it is a newly restored property, available from May 2014, we do not have many reviews yet . However we do have another property called Casa Cueva La Piedra, property number 310888, where there are many reviews.

The Andalucia region

The historic city of Granada is around one & a half hours drive away. Well worth a visit for its elegant squares & winding streets, Granada also boasts the world famous Alhambra, with its wonderfully preserved palace and the beautiful gardens. Above the city is the ski resort of the Sierra Nevada.

Less than half an hour away from the house is the dramatically sited castle at Velez Blanco has splendid views, and all the towns in the region offer street cafes and bars to sit and watch the world go by.

Orce

The farm house is on the edge of the village of Venta Micerna, ten kilometres from the historic town of Orce in north-eastern Granada. The town of Orce has a Moorish castle and a fascinating museum, plus a beautiful old church, and there are shops, banks, bars and restaurants, as well as a weekly market. There are good quality reasonably priced restaurants where a menu del dia is 10€ per head including all courses, drinks and coffee. It is also well worth sitting in the bar in the square sampling the free tapas with a few drinks and watching the world go by. Orce has a natural free swimming pool, spring fed, which is a lovely relaxing place to spend some time, it also has a bar and restaurant. There are many villages to explore and the mountain town of Castril has a dramatic gorge which you can walk through on an elevated wooden platform. Granada is a must for the Alhambra etc and this can be done as a day trip from the house.

Paisajes De Orce - Guided tours of this beautiful area are available with knowledgeable guides who speak English. La Torre del Salar - An old Arab watch tower which makes for a fantastic walk from the house. Hire of mountain bikes, cycling routes and guided rides available as well. The bikes can be delivered to Cortijo Romero.

Twelve kilometres in the other direction is the unspoilt wilderness of the natural park of the Sierra de Maria. This is a dramatic landscape of forests & mountains, which rise to a height of over 2000 metres. There are numerous tracks and pathways where you can walk for miles with little likelihood of meeting other people.

Twenty minutes drive away is the regional centre of Huescar, another historic town with a greater range of shops , busy restaurants & bars. This is an ideal place to sit outside a street cafe and watch the world go by, or relax in one of the many bars where free tapas are served with every drink.

A bustling market every Thursday fills the streets and squares and is a great place to soak up the atmosphere of 'real' Spain.

To the north is the vast natural park of the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas, another region of forests & mountains, famed for its wildlife. Between Huescar & the park is the highest mountain of the area, La Sagra and there are signed footpaths to the top, should you have the energy.

A drive in any direction will take you through stunning scenery and you will encounter little other traffic.

The nearest coast is around one and a quarter hours drive away at Aguilas, a typical Spanish resort and not over commercialised. Close by are numerous unspoilt beaches which are rarely crowded.

Walkers & nature lovers should be in their element, with endless opportunities for exploring the wilderness.

"A beautiful secret location hidden away in rural Spain"

On arrival this Cortijo exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was excellent and all the rooms were beautifully furnished and decorated in a comfortable rustic style. The kitchen and bathroom were both very well equipped and the Welcome pack of wine, homemade bread and marmalade made us feel very special.
The views from the front patio were breathtaking of the local mountains, especially in the evening and the enclosed patios & BBQ, were private and wonderfully cool in the heat of mid-day sun. The added bonus of our own private swimming pool was especially marvelous.
Although in a secluded location, there was easy access by car to some adorable Spanish bars and supermarkets. The local area is both breathtaking and steeped in history.
We wish we had been able to stay longer and will defiantly be back soon.

"Rustic Elegance at its best"

We stayed at Cortijo Romero for a two night break over the Bank Holiday weekend with the intent of re-charging our batteries after a hectic start to the year although I must admit to checking my email via the free wifi!
The property has been recently refurbished to a very high standard whilst retaining, or re-using, many of the property's original features and can accurately be described as a delight.
The property consists of a large lounge and dining area, the two sofas, two armchairs and six place dining table all fitted comfortably in the room. There are three double bedrooms so when they say the property can sleep 6 they mean in real beds with not a bed-settee in sight!
There is also a good sized bathroom and kitchen with all the appliances you could need - hob, oven, dishwasher and washing machine.
Outside there is a private courtyard, exclusive use of the plunge pool and a beautiful garden area with various fruit trees and a secluded picnic area - a little piece of an English garden in the middle of rural Spain.
The surrounding area is quiet with numerous walks and fabulous views of the Sierra de Maria mountains. The nearby town of Orce provides several opportunities for quality meals at excellent prices - not forgetting that tapas is still served for free with drinks in this part of Spain.
At the end of our stay we left fully re-invigorated and ready to face the world again.
We highly recommend it and we will be returning in the future.
