From the french windows in the living area you access the shady wooden terrace with gas barbecue where you can dine outdoors or simply laze away the peaceful, sunny days. Steps lead from this terrace to the private pool with tiled surround, sunbeds and parasol. The pool is approximately 3.5m x 7m and deep enough for swimming.The easterly aspect of the house is highly prized by the local Spanish as it offers early morning sunshine whilst protecting the interior from the heat of the midday sun. (Don't worry if you're a sun worshipper, there's always a sunny spot outside!!).Cortijo Teresa is located towards the end of a well maintained track, a 15 minute walk from the village of Valor.

Location description from owner

The Andalucia region

Andalucia is the southermost region of Spain with more than 300 days of sunshine per year. With beaches, mountains and historical cities it really does offer something for everyone.

Valor

The moorish village of Valor perches on the foothills of the Sierra Nevada gazing out over the valley and the market town of Ugijar. An unspoilt traditional Spanish village popular with spanish tourists. Situated two hours from Granada (the Alhambra Palace is truly unmissable) and one hour from the coast, culture, countryside, beaches and skiing are all within easy reach. With a population of just under 1000, the village has 9 bars all of which serve tapas and a couple of which offer a full menu. There are also 2 small supermarkets, one with it's own bakery, which sell all essential shopping items including fresh meat, fruit and veg. The travelling market visits on the 4th and 19th of every month with a few stalls selling clothing, plants, nuts & olives etc. For a wider range of shops and a bustling twice monthly market (5th and 20th), the town of Ugijar is just 10 kilometers away. The village pool is open during the months of July and August and there are numerous fiestas throughout the year, the largest of these being Moors and Christians in September when the villagers re-enact the taking of the Alhambra complete with horses and musket fire.You are surrounded by magnificent views of the Sierra Nevada and Contraviersa mountain ranges with numerous opportunities for walking and mountain biking on your doorstep. For the more adventurous, Mulhacen is close at hand.Try visiting a local vineyard, take a walking tour, hire a mountain bike, visit the historical city of Granada, explore the local villages or simply while away your time relaxing by the pool!Popular with Spanish tourists but as yet relatively undiscovered by other nationalities, Valor is an extremely friendly pueblo blanco and an ideal place to observe and enjoy the traditional Spanish way of life.

“Wonderful dog friendly cortijo”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2015

We had a wonderful four weeks in Cortijo Teresa, plenty of sun, and also some snow but the huge wood fire made it very cosy at night. There are so many lovely walks and the views all around are spectacular. There were signs of spring everywhere with the almond trees in blossom, gorse in flower and oranges and lemons in abundance - very much appreciated after the gloom of the English winter. Its so nice to find a dog-friendly place and our two had the best holiday ever! Thanks to Terry and Ginny for making us feel so welcome and for help with translation when needed . The cortijo was well equipped and comfortable. The 'welcome pack' was very welcome. The marmalade was delicious, the olive oil was the best we've ever tasted and the wine went down a treat after a twenty hour drive from England. The winter rates were very reasonable and we had a discount as we were there for four weeks. The cortijo doesn't have internet access but if you can't live without it there is free wi-fi in The Azahara and Aben Humeya restaurants if you need it. The Azahara maintains the tradition of free tapas with drinks - a wonderful Spanish custom and the tapas just kept coming and coming. A short walk away is Cuesta Vinas where there is lovely spring water which is apparently medicinal. All in all a lovely break.
