Having breakfast, sitting by the side of the pool in an idyllic setting was our idea of heaven. Just couldn't fault it in any way - it was our sort of place. The host was helpful without being intrusive; the room was quiet and comfortable; the walk into the village was pleasant and the small meal we had in one... More

Beautiful surroundings and perfect location with just short walk into Nijar and a 25 minute drive to the beaches of the Cabo de Gata. Johannes and his family were so friendly and made us feel at home straight away. Breakfast was delicious and the tapas in the evening with a glass of wine was perfect! Our room was lovely with...

This is a wonderful place to stay in Nijar. The hosts could not do enough to help you. The rooms were just gorgeous and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were just delightful and a good healthy choice of selection. This is the sort of place we love to stay. We have no hesitation in recommending this Cortijo. Thank you Johannes for...

Fabulous home shared with us by Johannes and his family. Nijar is a picture postcard town to mooch around - returning then to Cortijo La Alberca for sunshine by the pool with lovely crisp wine provided by our hosts was just perfect. The tapas in the evening were just perfect ( and very filling!) and then topped off with a... More

I arrived with two friends and we were immediately charmed by the feel of the place and its superb location, overlooking the town of Nijar and the valley beyond, stretching out to the Cabo de Gata National Park. The setting sun illuminated the rust red hills that overlook the Cortijo. Hosts Johannes and Resu welcomed us into their cosy communal... More

We stayed at Cortijo La Alberca for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel is perfectly situated alongside rocky hills, just outside of Níjar town. The place is beautifully restored, in perfect harmony with its environment, and the rooms are excellent. We had the opportunity to stay in the large, romantic room 'Olivo' with bath and private...

Our stay at the Cortijo La Alberca can only be described as beautifully relaxing, idyllic. The setting, the lodging, the service were all excellent. Johannes and his wife were perfect hosts in every way. Johannes is just as Andalusian as any Andalusian and can also speak English and German if you can't speak Spanish. The food was delicious. What better... More

Absolutely wonderful place outside of a quiet and lovely andalucian village of Nijar. Owners are the nicest people imaginable, rooms are cosy and very clean, food absolutely delicious and the view from the hotel breathtaking. I can't wait to come back there as soon as possible!!! Highly recommend it to anybody looking for something really special off the beaten track!
