Farmhouse | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 17
Totally refurbished to a very high standard Cortijo Cuscurro, which was formerly the local bakery for the local hamlet, has a truly traditional Spanish feel, yet provides total and utter luxury. Set in an amazing yet unspoilt part of Andalucia with the most amazing breathtaking views of the mountains and up to the moorish mountain top village of Comares.
There are 5 very large and airy bedrooms along with the option of a 6th bedroom if necessary, by using the second lounge in the cottage.
Only 5 minutes to the white washed villages of Riogordo and Comares, yet only 20 minutes the coast, the farmhouse is ideal for those seeking privacy, tranquility and relaxation. Guests have exclusive use of both the farmhouse and the cottage, making this retreat an ideal base for groups and familes alike.
Cortijo Cuscurro lies amongst olive groves with mature gardens with colourful shrubs, trees, palms and an unusually shaped chlorine free pool ( Saline) along with hot tub jacuzzi. At the bottom of the land is a stream and makes an ideal get away with a good book or a glass of wine.
The Cortijo is much more than a rental, we have reformed this stunning Famhouse and cottage into a home over a 10 year period and the facilities, furnishings and equipment provided, reflect just this.
INTERNET INCLUDED IN PEAK PERIOD, additional charge other months.
