House rules

House rules are available at the property. In a nut shell it says that children should be supervised at the swimming pool by parents at all times and adequate travel insurance should be taken before travelling. Smoking is only allowed on terrace and extra care should be taken when using the BQ as in Andalusia it is very dry over the summer months. No hen or bachelor parties. The house is provided for up to 6 people.

Very Good

“Wonderful hosts and a fantastic property”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2015

Kathryn and Donald were perfect. Our privacy was strictly respected, but they were always available to provide assistance or advice on Andalusia. The villa was spotless, comfortable, and beautifullly decorated. The exterior was also spectacular. Gardens, trails, and art. The infinity pool had a very nice view, but it was a little cool for swimming in October. A car is mandatory here as the location is a little remote. We used the villa as a base for trips to Cordoba, Malaga, Granada, Antequera, Torcal, Iznajar, etc. We usually had an afternoon meal at our destination and did homemade tapas in the evening at the villa accompanied by lagre quantities of beer, wine and port. I have run out of superlatives and do not wish to get out the thesaurus.I have already recommended this property to several friends. Many thanks to Donald and Kathryn

“"Everything you can imagine is real..." (Picasso)”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2015

Imagine a place where everything you can imagine is real... Only exists in Picasso's imagination you say? That's what we thought... until we found this place. Pure beauty, peace and calm. Fantastic hideaway, be it as a couple seeking a love nest in solitude or be it as a family (as we were) playing around in the immense and wonderfully established grounds (couple of hectares), amazing swimming pool, breathtaking views,... One of our fondest memories is the perfect heaven of stars in the evening/night, when spotting a falling star is like childsplay. Kathryn and Donald, the owners are darlings. Wonderful people, always helpful and there if you need them, but always keeping themselves to themselves, guaranteeing your privacy. We had a fantastic stay there and, need it said, I cannot recommend this place highly enough...

“Genieten van rust en natuur in het hart van Andalusië”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2015

Cortijo la Serena was voor ons de ideale combinatie om te genieten van de zon, rust en de natuur van het platteland en de cultuur die steden als Granada, Malaga, Ronda, Antequera en het dichtbijgelegen Archidona te bieden hebben. Als je dan nog hartelijk onthaald wordt door de gastvrouw en -heer is het helemaal af! Super locatie

“Total tranquillity in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2015

What makes this property so special for me is the peace and quiet, the space of the grounds, the truly beautiful house, and the wonderful owners who go to so much trouble to ensure their guests are happy without being at all intrusive (a rare skill).

“Lovely hilltop situation in exquisite surroundings”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2015

The superb accommodation lacks for nothing, and Donald and Kathryn are the most hospitable hosts one could ever wish to meet. We only stayed for a week but should have stayed for a month.

“Peace and Quiet”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

Just what we were looking for, lovely surroundings, the property is comfortable and cared for, Peace and Quiet is what we were looking for and that is what we got. Donald and Kathryn are lovely, helpful and unobtrusive.

“This was a very special place.”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2015

This was our second stay at Cortijo la Serena. We have enjoyed it even more on this second visit. Our hosts Kathryn and Donald were so welcoming and always on hand to answer questions about where to go and what to do. The weather was perfect. The garden looked magnificent. We mainly went golfing at Antequera and exploring the restaurants in Archidina. We will be back.

“What a Place!”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2015

I do not normally write reviews, but I needed to for Cortijo Serena, as it is just such a beautiful house with fantastic gardens with the perfect hosts. The pictures on the site do not do this place justice, you have to see it in the flesh to appreciate. Owners Catherine and Donald, really do make you feel special; they have a wealth of local knowledge, keep the rental house in tip-top condition, and leave you to enjoy the house, gardens and spectacular pool. There are golf courses, lakes, mountains and classic Spanish market towns all in the local area; not to mention Granada, The coast and Seville all within an easy drive. Rural Andalucia is a favourite holiday spot for me, I worry I will not find somewhere else within this budget that could be any better, never mind I'll just keep going back to Cortijo Serena!

“Stunning and serene!”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2015

We stayed at the perfectly named La Serena in April in a family group. The property is just wonderful, so very pretty. The surrounding area beautiful. The location is perfect for exploring Andalucia - 2 hours to Seville, 1 hour to Granada, 1 hr 20 mins to Cordoba & 20 mins to Antequera (not that well known but a lovely town steeped in history). An easy 40 minutes drive from Malaga airport & you arrive in the 'real Spain'. Peaceful, quiet & wonderful scenery. The property is very well proportioned & every thing you could wish for is available. Kathryn & Donald couldn't be more helpful - they are very knowledgeable too & gave us some great recommendations for visits and eating. The pool is fabulous and our very favourite thing was the Moroccan tent - awesome for early evening chillout with a glass of something nice - a perfect place to reflect on the wonderful day you've just enjoyed. We will be back!

“We had a wonderful time!”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2014

The house is wonderfully equipped and decorated. The infinity pool is just marvellous! The children liked pool and area, enjoyed to have rooms of their own. Donald and Kathryn are very good hosts.
