We stayed for one night in this fabulously decorated and peaceful Cortijo near to Velez Rubio and Velez Blanco. The hosts, Gary and Gillian, made us most welcome and provided us with much local knowledge, a high quality evening meal and an equally delicious breakfast. We would not hesitate in recommending this as a great place to stay either whilst...

Ten of us met up as a group of friends for a nice meal and a nights stop over. The weather even for early October was especially warm and so we could enjoy sitting out in the beautiful peaceful garden with its spectacular mountain views. Gill and Gary were fabulous hosts and showed us a walk to suit our ability,...

I first visited Cortijo El Ciruelo in 2005 & loved it so much I went back for a second visit. This beautifully restored farm house is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the surroundings. I especially enjoyed reading on the sunny patio and taking in the breathtaking views. The bedrooms are clean, comfortable and have everything you could need....

Great place to stay in very rural Spain. A proper get away and a great base to see large parts of traditional Spain. Very good value for money, 4 x double rooms. Can have a party hear, a small wedding or just a nice chill-out break Food and drink 9/10 location 11/10

I hate to confess I am not normally one to write reviews, but after our recent holiday at El Ciruelo Spain I felt I must. We searched for a quiet & tranquil setting near to places we wanted to visit and this was perfect for us with beautiful panoramic views. We had a very warm welcome from Gillian & Gary...

A wonderful b & b. only 5 minutes off the A92 close to Velez Rubio. Gillian and Gary are the perfect hosts. Accommodation, food and ambience are all 5 star. Gillian's cooking is out of this world. You will not find a better place to stay.

Gill and Gary went out of their way to look after me in this gorgeous cortijo set in beautiful surroundings, near the town of Velez Rubio. My room was small, but cosy - I think there are larger ones for couples / families. There is a fridge full of cold drinks that you can help yourself to, free wifi, lots...
