“charming, rustic, relaxing” Cortijo La Mata is a wonderfully charming and rustic villa. The location close to the Sierra Navada National park is an excellent spot for travellers who wish to do nothing or those who like to be active on holiday. The property has an authenic andalusian feel, is spacious and well appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay
“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.
