Cortijo la Mata, owned by Johnny and Angie and superbly managed by the ever-friendly and helpful Laura, is a traditional Andalusian farmhouse built in the year 1911 converted into a holiday villa with all mod cons. Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range yet only 15 minutes by car from the Alhambra Palace and the city of Granada the house is located just outside the old village of Monachil in an area of outstanding natural beauty surrounded by olive, almond and cherry trees. For those who are looking for a complete escape to the Andalusian countryside yet want to take advantage of all that the city of Granada has to offer plus take in the ski slopes of Spain's highest mountain range the location is perfect. Sierra Nevada ski station is only 30 minutes away with the added advantage that there is a separate road from the village to the resort hence avoiding much of the Granada city traffic. Total land area of 1,500m2 which includes the villa (275m2 distributed over three floors), a 30m2 pool, beautiful mature gardens of over 100m2, several patios and terraces totalling around 300m2, parking area of 100m2 (for 4 cars) and private mountainside of 800m2. The perfect setting for celebrations, family reunions, workshops and seminars. From mountain biking, rock climbing and Spanish courses to flamenco lessons and cookery courses we can organize almost anything! Cortijo la Mata is registered with the Andalusian Tourist Board VTAR/GR/00194. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTAR/GR/00194More

About the neighbourhood
Monachil is truly a Spanish village. Just 10 minutes from the Alhambra Palace (the most visited monument in Spain), 20 minutes from Granada city centre, 30 minutes from Sierra Nevada ski resort and 30 minutes from Granada's Federico Garcia Lorca airport. The villa is ideally located within a couple's of minute walk of the local shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, large play parks, banks, a post office, pharmacy, DIY shop, tobacco shop, bike rental and bus stop. There is an hourly bus service connecting Granada city center with Monachil taking only 25 minutes. Granada's top climbing area - Los Cahorros gorge - is only a 20 minute stroll away.
