In the cool breezeway of my farmhouse , all is forgotten
Bliss in the Spanish mountains
A mystical daydream
steady jangling of a goat bell down in the valley
Shepard speaks his secret language
Barking dog in the distance echoes across the Sierras
Partial Lunar eclipse
Blood orange moon
White wine in a frosted glass
Water gushing forever down from the mountain tops
glorious late afternoon breezes
Gecko spies me from the English garden
Stars and butterflies
echoing of church bells chiming in the hills
stunning Spanish sunsets
amazing things around every corner
a sheep dog leaps from the brush rushing to conclude his day
My God, how could so many magical things be happening in a such a historically rich wonderland
a place on this planet where you can find solitude and the smile from a stranger
Thank you Robert and William for being amazing hosts to my most memorable trip ever!
It´s a amazing Place with a beautiful Landscape, wonderful Garden, very friendly Dog´s and of course the special Welcome by Robert & Wiliam. We enjoyed the Time with Sun and without Sun:) We will come back as soon as possible:):)
We stayed in Cortijo Opazo for 4 days at the end of September. From the get go the hospitality of Robert and William made our short stay so memorable. The location and environment are stunning and it is the kind of place that makes you relax. The accomodation is excellent , full of character and with all you need for a lovely stay. Dining on the balcony in the evening was made all the more special by the availability of fresh herbs from the garden. This is a little piece of heaven and we will surely be back. We are already looking forward to our stay in La Herradura in the new year.
There is nothing to dislike about Cortijo Opazo, we just loved, loved, loved it - the accommodation, location & hosts are all fabulous!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay! The apartment was lovely, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The outside patio area was perfect with ample shade during the hot afternoons and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and garden. Our ramble through the garden each evening was a delight. Peace and tranquility with only the hum of bees and the occasionall soft ringing of the sheep's bells - a perfect place to relax and unwind. Robert and William are wonderful hosts, always taking the time to answer questions and offer suggestions for walks and visits in the area. We had a few dinners cooked by William and they
were delicious! We had a wonderful holiday and we will definitely return!
From the minute we arrived at this beautiful Cortigo we knew we were in for a treat. Robert and William met us at the door with a glass of wine which set the scene for the rest of the holiday. The Cortigo is set in a stunning location with well described walks available from the front door. The gardens are wonderful and reflect all the care and attention that Robert and William have put in to them - everywhere you turned there were more plants and views to catch the eye. And then there was William's cooking! Thank you both so much for a perfect holiday - and thanks to Ella and Oska too, who kept us company in the absence of our own doggie friends!
Every aspect of Cortijo Opazo is perfect. The apartments are very comfortable and everything works! The fabulous garden, all at your disposal, is full of birds and insects. The views are amazing and the food (if you chose the all-inclusive option) is exceptionally good. The walking is fabulous with great scenery, flora and fauna and the meticulous walking notes are tailor-made to your requirements. We could not recommend this walking holiday more highly.
