After a truly disastrous road trip down through France and the Costa Brava and a knuckling clenching drive with no turbo up an Andalucian hill we arrived to the warmest welcome imaginable at the stunning Cortijo. Hidden amongst the olive groves in the hills around Iznajar and boasting excellent views, the Cortijo is like no other place I've stayed before. The garden is beautiful and there's a generous selection of chill out zones, daybeds and hammocks around the little pool. Bernadette is a wonderful hostess and Patriek is a genius at work in the kitchen - every dinner was absolutely fantastic! The Cortijo is in driving distance of Cordoba, Malaga, Seville and Granada but after our horrible journey we couldn't wrench ourselves away from this haven and instead visited the gorgeous, historic nearby town of Izanjar.
The cortijo is a charming old farmhouse and the rooms we had were spacious, spotless and very cool, a welcome reflief from the Andalucian sun! We had views of the classic Spanish courtyard from the bedroom and stunning views over Iznajar from the balcony.
Do not miss Patriek's table d'hôte each night, his cooking is first class.
This is probably not the place to come for action and exercise! But if you need your hard drive reset, your batteries recharged, your mind cleared and to feel like you've actually had a proper holiday, I defy you to find better anywhere. I cannot wait to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A beautifully restored 250-year old olive cortijo, hidden away amongst the olive groves south of Iznajar, with stunning, ever-changing views of the Sierra Nevada and the valleys. 6-star service, home from home, a little corner of paradise are but a few items of praise we have received. A warm welcome awaits is our motto, but we may need to change it soon to: so good you won't want to leave! ... more less
