Farmhouse | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 18
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 families alike.
NEW FOR 2014 CIRCULAR FIRE PIT BBQ SEATING AREA.
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. English speaking channels on TV.

The Andalucia region
Driving along the Costa del Sol overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, about 30 minutes away from Malaga Airport you will enter La Axarquia, a rural region still unspoilt by tourism. Green countryside with white-washed villages, tranquility and a different way of life under the year-round sunshine of Andalucia are waiting for you.
Going up from Torre del Mar into the mountains you will reach Lake Viñuela, a man-made reservoir surrounded by mountains, not only providing the area with water but also forming a spectacular and harmonic part of attraction of this unique and scenic landscape. here you will find several bars/restaurants offering fantastic food.
Heading inland from here you will reach the charming village of Riogordo, nestled into this stunning countryside with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Riogordo translates to Fat River, which is what the village is know for. . Torre del Mar with beaches and all facilities is 20 min away.
The pretty whitewashed village of Riogordo lies in the region of Axarquia. This small and unspoilt area of Andalucia –to the north east of Malaga - is still a well kept secret. Untouched by mass tourism, and surrounded by National Parks it is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty between the Sea and Sierras.
The village offers very resonable local restaurants and excellent shopping facilities. Only 20 minutes to the Mediterranean coast, and 40 minutes to Malaga international airport. Due to good motorway connections, Granada and Antequera can be reached in 1 hour, Cordoba and Seville in 2 hours. Lake Vinuela is 10 mins by car.
The village of Riogordo is five minutes away by car where most grocery items may be purchased as well as freshly baked bread. Fresh fish, four butcher's and two banks. Wednesday there is a street market. There is a good choice of local restaurants and bars near by, as well as dozens to choose from at the coast, catering for all tastes. 24 hour medical centre in nearby Colmenar.

"Beautiful house in stunning rural location"
Our two week stay at Cortijo Cuscurro was really lovely. The house easily accommodated the twelve of us and with enough space so that we never felt we were on top of each other. High lights were the… More

"Fantastic villa in rural Andalusia"
This was a great holiday and the villa was everything we could have wished for. I would echo the sentiments of the other reviewers exactly. Lisa and Julian have got the balance just right in respect … More
Thank you for your review on Cortijo Cuscurro. We are so pleased you had such a good stay here in Riogordo.
Yes, it can take a little longer to get to the coast, but there is a cut through that you can use, unfortunately it was cut off while you were here, so having to go through Riogordo to get to the Lake road does add 5 minutes to the journey. They have opened the road now, so it is a little quicker. Its a great drive though as you say. And a stop at the lake for a coffee on the way down to admire those stunning views is a must !!!! Hope to see you again sometime.

"Fabulous villa in perfect surroundings"

Thank you for taking the time to review Cortijo Cuscurro. We are very pleased you had a great stay here in Riogordo.
August is always a very exciting time with lots of local fiestas.
We were pleased that we were here to be on hand for your needs during your 3 week stay. As you found out, we are in a separate property down on the plot below, detatched completely from The Cortijo Cuscurro and Cottage , therefor we are always cautious to respect all our guests privacy during their stay., yet we are here should the need arise.
Some guests come and go, without us seeing them at all apart from when maintaining the large gardens, pool and spa. Others are happy to have us locally for any help or advise they may need during their stay.
3 birthday's all in 3 weeks was first for us, and we were so happy to be of assistance to make these occasions fun and easy for you all. It was a pleasure meeting you all, especially the youngest member of your group. Bless her.

"What a stunning place!"
We (a group of 5 couples) have just got back after spending a week at Cortijo Cuscurro, and I cannot think of a bad word to say about it! The villa is secluded and set in the middle of the hills, giving the most amazing views. It has great facilities and an excellent layout, particularly for a group like ours, as there are various separate areas of the Cortijo which gives you the flexibility to relax together as a big group, but with the option of privacy elsewhere. The photos really don't do it justice!
Lisa and Julian (the owners, in the neighbouring villa) were so kind and helpful throughout our stay, including helping us to resolve some issues with our hire cars. We quickly made friends with their gorgeous friendly dogs, Henry and Elvis, who were with us for much of our stay, along with a couple of cats as well.
Riogordo (about 15 mins drive) is small but has all the amenities you need, including a decent supermarket.
I am not usually keen on going back to the same place twice, but after this holiday I can understand why people go back to the same place year after year - we had a fantastic stay, and may well be back!
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We always love to have repeat guests. We have several repeat guests this year, which is very encouraging.
Elvis and Henry do love to make an appearance., especially when guests like giving tit bits!! Having said this, if guests do not like animals, they are always kept away from The Cortijo !! Respect for privacy is top of the list and as you know, this is what most people love about The Cortijo. Privacy, seclusion, views and Chillaxing!!
Look forward to welcoming you back again sometime. Lisa and Julian.

Many thanks Lisa and Julian and co

Thank you for your review of Cortijo Cuscurro. We are very pleased that you enjoyed celebrating your 21st here with friends and family. The courtyard is ideal for coming together, yet all having your own space to escape during the day.!! Hope to see you agin in Riogordo. Lisa

We stayed there with 14 friends in September 2011. The villa was very clean, with nice design and there was awesome swimming pool outside. Highly recommended!
Glad you all enjoyed your stay. Hope to welcome you back one day.
