From the owner

If you are visiting Granada and looking for a place to stay Cortijo la Mata is perfect for couples, families, or groups of friends as it offers a really tranquil environment while at the same time offering its visitors all that the city has on offer.

Cortijo la Mata, owned by Johnny and Angie and superbly managed by the ever-friendly and helpful Laura, is a traditional Andalusian farmhouse built in the year 1911 converted into a holiday villa with all mod cons. Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range yet only 15 minutes by car from the Alhambra Palace and the city of Granada the house is located just outside the old village of Monachil in an area of outstanding natural beauty surrounded by olive, almond and cherry trees.

For those who are looking for a complete escape to the Andalusian countryside yet want to take advantage of all that the city of Granada has to offer plus take in the ski slopes of Spain's highest mountain range the location is perfect.

Sierra Nevada ski station is only 30 minutes away with the added advantage that there is a separate road from the village to the resort hence avoiding much of the Granada city traffic.

Total land area of 1,500m2 which includes the villa (275m2 distributed over three floors), a 30m2 pool, beautiful mature gardens of over 100m2, several patios and terraces totalling around 300m2, parking area of 100m2 (for 4 cars) and private mountainside of 800m2.

The perfect setting for celebrations, family reunions, workshops and seminars. From mountain biking, rock climbing and Spanish courses to flamenco lessons and cookery courses we can organize almost anything! Cortijo la Mata is registered with the Andalusian Tourist Board VTAR/GR/00194.

Owner's reply:
Thank you very much for the excellent review, it is always very reassuring to know my guests have enjoyed their stay. I note however that the internet didn't work particularly well for you. I am glad you brought that to my attention because I was unaware there was a problem. We will investigate and upgrade the router as necessary.
