“Excellent location,Peaceful,wonderful Walks,Stunning Gardens,Highly Recommend.”
Take the local bus from Orca to Granada,takes around two hours but well worth the trip,cheap bus fare. Local bar very friendly and cheap. Walks are amazing, stunning scenery and so peaceful. Farmhouse spacious and well equipped.Chaps very polite and hardly saw them, they keep out of your way as they live next door.The pool is to die for when its so hot. Very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend.
“A delightful house in a beautiful rural setting”
The photographs on the website convinced us to choose Cortijo Romero for our two-week holiday but when we arrived it was clear that even the photos don’t do the property justice - everything seems much more spacious when we were there. The house has been beautifully restored and comfortably furnished and was immaculately clean throughout. We were amazed at the extent of the private courtyard which offers a beautiful garden, covered dining area, patio, swimming pool and sunbathing area; we spent many happy hours there enjoying the tranquillity of the property’s location. There are no restaurants in Venta Micena (there is a bar but this was closed during our stay) but this was not a problem for us as we prefer to cook our own meals. The kitchen is well equipped with pans and utensils, and the four-ring hob/oven meant that our culinary creativity was unconstrained! There is also a good-sized barbeque in the garden if that’s your catering preference. The market visits different towns in the area each day of the week which was ideal for buying all of our fruit and veg, supplemented by fruit and almonds from David and Simon’s garden and fresh herbs from the cortijo’s own private courtyard garden. There are two small supermarkets in Orce (10km) but we preferred to go to a larger supermarket in Huescar (25km) which offered a wider selection of goods and was on the way to a number of the great locations we chose for our days out. There are so many places to visit and so much beautiful and varied scenery to enjoy within 40km of Cortijo Romero but we would thoroughly recommend: 1) visiting Castril and doing the loop walk which starts and ends at the gorge; and 2) driving the tiny road north from Huescar to Las Santas and then taking the Los Collados road around La Sagra mountain and back to Huescar. In summary this is a superb cortijo set in a peaceful location, surrounded by fields and mountains; we couldn’t get enough of the view from the front of the house towards the Sierra de Maria Mountains. Thanks to David and Simon for their hospitality which helped to make this such an enjoyable and memorable holiday for us.
“cortijo romero relaxation par exellence”
our stay at cortijo romero was one of the best holidays we have taken. the standard of the accomodation was superb, don,t worry about the lack of air conditioning you won,t need it. all the rooms are cool and furnished to a high standard. the layout of the courtyard and plunge pool area were tastefully appointed and very clean. overall a beautiful place to take a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the mountains ! our hosts david and simon were very helpfull and knowledgeable, giving advice on planned trips. all in all a very pleasing experience.
“A warm welcome in authentic Spain.”
After a long drive through spectacular scenery, the welcome we received from Simon and David, including freshly baked bread and various jams & local wine was much appreciated. The recently renovated traditional farmhouse was cool, comfortable and furnished with a fusion of Spanish and Moroccan styles with lots of shady outdoor space for lounging and eating. We made good use of the small pool which was cleaned early every morning, the owners were discreet but always on hand if needed and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Although peaceful and remote, during the summer there is a friendly little bar within 2 minutes walk where you can have a beer and chat to locals, and you can pick up anything else you need in Orce which is a 10 minute drive away. We were lucky enough to be in Orce during their August Fiesta, every night was different with parades, bands and dancing. All in all a great holiday in excellent accommodation surrounded by a stunning and unique landscape; a great taste of authentic Spain!
“A beautiful secret location hidden away in rural Spain”
On arrival this Cortijo exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was excellent and all the rooms were beautifully furnished and decorated in a comfortable rustic style. The kitchen and bathroom were both very well equipped and the Welcome pack of wine, homemade bread and marmalade made us feel very special. The views from the front patio were breathtaking of the local mountains, especially in the evening and the enclosed patios & BBQ, were private and wonderfully cool in the heat of mid-day sun. The added bonus of our own private swimming pool was especially marvelous. Although in a secluded location, there was easy access by car to some adorable Spanish bars and supermarkets. The local area is both breathtaking and steeped in history. We wish we had been able to stay longer and will defiantly be back soon.
“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.
