Traveling on my own, I stayed in the casita for 2 nights in June. The apartment was lovely, especially the charming old beamed ceiling in the bedroom. I also enjoyed having breakfast every morning at my table in the courtyard planted with gorgeous roses. It is so peaceful and such a lovely rural location right in the middle of all the olive trees, that one can easily spend the whole day at the cortijo. The pool was absolutely sparkling and I had it all to myself.
Jess, the owner who lives there, was full of local tips and is a delight to chat with. I had forgotten my bathing suit and he produced one for me to borrow!
I absolutely loved the short drive down the dirt track and splashing through the little stream - it was all part of the adventure. It's a really great value for money as well.
