Hats off for having renovated and built such a beautifull cortijo by the owners themselves- wow!
We passed one week at Almendra, a very well equipped house decorated with rarities and antiques. Even if all have their own history, it fits in best harmony, making it cozy and incomparable to common vacation flats. Due to the traditional building technique it stays pleasantly cool in the summer, even with 35 degrees outside. A memorable event was also enjoying the haute cuisine from David. Our son loved playing with the kids and the amicable dogs. We were nearly feeling like passing vacations with friends, always being able to have a nice talk with Riny, Rosa or Pedro when we felt like it or just having some peace and quiet.
The landscape around the cortijo is wild but beautiful and we enjoyed the peacefulness. The location near to Malaga and near to the route to Cordoba and Granada gave us the possibility however to spend days on tours to visit the mavels of Andalucia.
You can pass your vacations at millions of flats at the sea but you will remember this vacation in such a mountain landscape. And sitting outside on the patio at night and watching the stars away from the light of the city certainly was another highlight.
Thanks all of you for a wonderful stay, we certainly hope to return somedays.
