I found Cortijo Sabila by sheer luck when driving past on my way to Granada and looked for a last minute place to stay. What a surprise, hidden in the mountains.
Ray and Yvonne are superb hosts and made me feel like an old friend arriving home. And what a home it is! The house must be experienced to believe - a typical Spanish country mansion renovated with love (and I am sure also lots of sweat and tears). The house is furnished with carefully selected antique pieces which each carry their own story.
Yvonne is an excellent cook - do not even think of going to eat in the village.
Although Cortijo Sabila is highly rated as a boutique hotel, I can not think of it as a hotel. This is a home, with the doors open to privileged weary travellers.
I arrived as a traveller looking for a place to sleep for the night, I left as a friend.
Ray and Yvonne, I will be back to see the new rooms, the garden growing and maturing, the sun rising over the mountains.... and another dinner in the impressive dining room.
If there were six stars to be given, it would be well rewarded to Cortija Sabila - Home of Ray and Yvonne.
