Description

Cortijo Prado Toro is situated in the Natural Park of the Alpujarras,on the southern slopes of the National Park of the Sierra Nevada, Spain's highest and most dramatic mountain range in the province of Granada. The Cortijo (country house) faces towards the Mediterranean at an altitude of 1450m, opening up breathtaking views of unspoilt natural countryside and on clear days even extending to the Rif mountains of North Africa.
Cortijo Prado Toro is a delightful quiet place set amidst stunning countryside.

Hidden courtyards and patios provide sanctuaries of shade and greenery, whilst secluded terraced corners offer privacy in the sun. Weeping branches of mature willow trees form bowers of tranquility, and the gentle murmur of a spring or fountain never seems far away. Only the muted clanging of distant goat bells is likely to disturb the silence of this quiet mountain retreat.

Only the muted clanging of distant goat bells is likely to disturb the silence of this quiet mountain retreat.

The architecture of the buildings, designed and restored with the help of Donald Gray (an eminence in traditional Andalucian architecture),is in the traditional Alpujarran style with much care taken on the detail. The individually designed and decorated apartments of the Cortijo Prado Toro, all furnished to a high standard, combine simplicity and luxury with elegance from another era.

Location description from owner

The Andalucia region

The Alpujarras, also named as the Alpujarra, is unique, an area of stunning natural beauty with a delightful climate, it has almost completely avoided the ravages of twentieth century life. Dominated by the magnificent rugged peaks of Spain's highest mountain range, the Sierra Nevada, the foothills of the southern slopes are cut by deep, fertile valleys, rich with groves of almonds and olives, oranges and lemons, cherry orchards and terraced pastures.

There are panoramic views in every direction, from the snow-capped peaks of Veleta and Mulhacen rising spectacularly to 12,000 feet, to the coastal hills. At sunset, the Rif Mountains of Morocco are sometimes clearly visible 125 miles away, across the Mediterranean.

The variety of landscape and the contrasts in topography have given la Alpujarra a wealth of diversified plant life; the region has the largest number of unique botanical species in Europe. Herds of mountain goats, wild boar, eagles, goshawks and partridge inhabit the sierra. The area has been declared a Natural Park by the Government of Andalusia and UNESCO has granted it Biosphere Reserve status.

Las Alpujarras

Pitres, Capileira, Bubion and Pampaneira are the most spectacular villages in the high Alpujarras, with plenty of different restaurants, Bars, shops, Supermarkets etc.
