What can I say that hasn't already been said? A wonderful oasis of peace and tranquility run by the unobtrusive but always attentive Celeste whose smile and gentle attention put a smile on my elderly father's face every day. Wonderful home cooked meals, should you wish, by Celeste's mother and a relaxing atmosphere meant it was a pleasure to return... More

Probably the most friendly, welcoming Hotel I've ever stayed in. (End of May 2015) A family-run affair spearheaded by daughter Celeste, Cortijo La Alberca is located about five minutes drive from the centre of Nijar, a smart, friendly southern Spanish town. The eight rooms - some with private terraces - are furnished in traditional Spanish style. A lovely hot /... More

Celeste, the lady who runs the cortijo, welcomes you with her very personal and warm approach.The farmhouse, which has over 200 years of age, was renovated entirely and with the greatest respect of traditions and style. The rooms are located in separate buildings, such as the stables, and newly built pavillions. They all have the necessary comfort, such as good... 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
