"Location Stunning, but challenged by energy supply."
July is much too hot to stay here, and that mistake was entirely ours!
The location, setting and tranquility of the large and grand Cortjio property are all amazing! Sadly, however, we did not feel … More
I have only just noticed this review and feel it very necessary to respond. The family of 3 who stayed at the cortijo in July 2014 left some very flattering remarks in my guest book so this review is even more mysterious. They seemed perfectly happy and did not say a negative word about the cortijo or the finca. By the way, as to the reference of an expensive holiday, they did in fact get a discount as there were only 3 and not 6.
We had many friendly chats and provided them with bikes (never actually used as they alway got up so late, of course it was too hot to do anything by 11.00)
I think they were unsuited to a hot summer and not prepared to adapt their timetable to accommodate the climate. A pity that they don't seem to have reaped the full glory of an Extremadura summer, early rising to enjoy the cool mornings, a cool siesta in the afternoon and looking forward to long balmy starry nights.
