Wow, the Cortijo La Escanuela is a special place. I spent several days here in June and had an incredible experience. The house is very well maintained, I found everything clean, organized, and working well. The pool is a life saver and is perfect for cooling off after a day of exploring the nearby towns, beaches, or mountains (breathtaking views of the Alpujarras) which are all within a short drive. The views over the cortijo-filled valley outside of the home is beautiful, and provides a perfect setting to watch the sunset. The owner of La Escanuela is an extremely fun, friendly, and kind woman who made my stay more enjoyable just by talking to me- she has created a great location for a relaxing vacationthat is suitable for families, couples, or groups of friends to enjoy. This place has something for everyone and if you stay here you will surely enjoy your visit.
