We've just returned from a perfect holiday in Prado Toro. The apartment, El Patio, was beautifully furnished with everything we needed, including a lovely shady courtyard. The Cortijo itself is magnificent, with beautifully gardened grounds from which you can walk straight out onto the hillside. Swimming in the pool was like swimming on top of the world! We loved the... More

A lovely, quiet, well thought out place in a stunningly beautiful area. We've been twice and will certainly be going back. We have stayed in two of the apartments, which are separate and you can stay blissfully unaware of the others. We were in the Atico this time, which suited us, with its private terrace offering both sun and shade.... More

Cortijo Prado Toro is a paradise. Our apartment was lovely, the pool area an oasis with lovely flowers, a gorgeous view, and superb walking in the area. The owner, Ludet, is extremely interesting, kind, and helpful. What more could anyone want?

Cortijo Prado Toro is a beautifully constructed and designed establishment, lots of fine stonework and gorgeous, well cared for landscaping. The views are large and delightful, the units comfortable and accommodating. We enjoyed staying there so much 2 years ago that we returned again late May/ early June of this year (2014). The host, Mr Ludet, was pleasant and extraordinarily... More

We have stayed twice! We booked this through a travel agency the first time we went and were not sure what to expect. On arrival we were shown to "El Atico" - the roof top apartment with stunning panoramic views over the Alpjuharras. The whole setting is superb - so quiet and relaxing, only 10 mins by car from the... More

Everything about Prado Toro exceeding our wildest expectations. Our apartment was private, spacious and beautifully constructed in traditional Alpajarra style. It was very efficient for the self catering traveler and included a kitchen and a patio with gorgeous views. The GR -7 was 150 meters from or back door. Our multi-talented host, Ludet, connected us with some pristine local hikes... More

These apartments are designed in a style which accords with their rural location in the Alpujarra foothills of the Sierra Nevada. We have stayed here on several occasions and were happy to return last month.The accommodation is comfortable, well-appointed and always clean. Whilst there is much to see in the region generally and as much in the immediate surrounding area,... More

If you're looking for a rural mountain getaway, this is the perfect place. It's family owned and run. The owner is friendly and helpful, has good local knowledge and didn't bat an eyelid when we arrived very late (1am) after a long journey. The setting is stunning (but pay for damage waiver insurance on your hire car for the unpaved... More

We have just returned home from our 6th stay at Prado Toro and I guess that says it all. It is a wonderfully peaceful place to stay in a beautiful and unspoilt area. The host is delightful and helpful and the apartments are private and full of character and rustic charm. You can alternate relaxing by the lovely circular swimming... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cortijo Prado Toro is situated in the Natural Park of the Alpujarras , on the southern slopes of the National Park of the Sierra Nevada, Spains highest and most dramatic mountain range in the province of Granada. The historic white villages of "La Taha" are within easy reach. The main town of the Taha, Pitres, is less than 10 min away by car. The Cortijo (country house) faces south, towards the Mediterranean, at an altitude of 1.450M, opening up breathtaking views of unspoiled natural countryside. On clear days even extending to the Rif mountains of North Africa. Cortijo Prado Toro is a delightful quiet place set amidst stunning country side. Hidden courtyards and patios provide sanctuaries of shade and greenery, whilst secluded terraced corners offer privacy in the sun. Weeping branches of mature willow trees form bowers of tranquility, and the gentle murmer of a spring or fountain never seems far away. Only birdsong or the muted clanging of distant goat bells is likely to disturb the silence of this quiet mountain retreat. The architecture of the buildings, designed and restaured with the help of "Donald Gray", an authority in traditional Andalusian architecture, is in the traditional Alpujarran style with much care taken on the detail. The individually designed and decorated apartments, all separated from eachother to provide absolute privacy , are all furnished to a high standard and combine simplicity and luxury with elegance of another era. ... more   less
