Beautifully and Sympathetically renovated Cortijo, with stunning views and very attractive grounds, with olive, orange, lemon and mandarin trees , not to mention grapevines. Beautiful pool area , so... More

Oh my goodness, absolutely beautiful, a calm, romantic retreat with spectacular views, tucked away above Nijar. Thank you so much Celeste and Mati for a magical stay we will always remember and of course to Celeste's madre for her superb cuisine. Perfecto xxx

This is a wonderfull place and a beautiful hotel on the way to nowhere. It is not a place you pass, you have to go for it - and you should do it. The rooms are so nice and the bathrooms are someting special. You have your meals on the terrace or in the small diningroom. The view is fantastic... More

Stayed here for a few nights whilst looking at areas to buy a home. Only about 20 mind from the airport. We checked out how to get there in advance so knew exactly where we were heading. Enjoyed a simple fresh breakfast sitting by the pool. I went in the pool everyday and had it to myself each day. Went... More

An unexpected surprise from my husband to come here turned into a lovely short break. The food prepared by Maria was lovely and Celeste's attention was great. The whole place left me very relaxed. I highly recomend this place and will certainly return.

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...
