Our third visit to Cortijo Valverde and with hosts like Ali and Caroline, you really don't want to leave! From start to finish, you are made most welcome and nothing is too much trouble, whether its places to visit, routes to get to your destination or which wine is best suited to Caroline's amazing 3 course meals! If it all... More

We stayed for 4 nights as the first part of our trip and had a wonderful time. The location is stunning, so peaceful and relaxing. Caroline and Ali look after you so well and the food is great, we stayed for dinner all 4 nights and enjoyed the dinner party format. Car hire is a must if you want to... More

A 3-day wind-down prior to rejoining the madding crowd. This was the perfect end to a wonderful Spanish holiday. A tranquil setting, super accommodation and outstanding hosts; we cannot praise Caroline and Ali enough for the way they looked after us. All of the great reviews about Cortijo Valverde are spot on and well deserved - we hope to return... More

When I first visited Cortijo Valverde I knew I would be a returning guest and so it has proved. The setting is beautiful, deep in the rural heart of Andalucia with soft breezes, the sounds of chickens and goats and the odd donkey braying - away from the hustle and bustle of the Costa. It is only 45 minutes drive... More

Well, we came back.. and we soon confirmed why we did. Ali and Caroline were there to welcome us as indeed they do with every guest in their own warm and unassuming way. We stayed for nine nights on this visit for the second part of a two week birding holiday. It is perfectly situated to allow us to carry... More

A delightful small hotel in beautiful setting. A lovely place to relax and unwind after a busy two weeks travelling around Andalusia. Very friendly hosts with excellent information and guides to all surrounding area.

From the minute we arrived, Ali and Caroline made us feel so welcome (as did Freddy the dog and the 3 cats) and nothing was too much trouble. They genuinely make you feel completely at home, I’d echo other reviews - it’s just like visiting good friends. The room was perfect and food, all freshly prepared by Caroline, was absolutely...

Have just had a lovely few days at Cortijo Valverde - lovely place, lovely hosts, lovely food. Complete relaxation with lots of interesting conversation. We were treated as friends from the start and were sorry to leave. We hope to visit again before too long.

A hidden gem in rural Andalucia, tranquil and unspoiled. Lovely accommodation in attractive gardens and most attentive hosts in Ali and Caroline. A fine breakfast to set you up for the day and then Caroline's excellent cuisine to look forward to each evening. The "ski chalet" format works so well at dinner and is very easy-going and sociable. Strongly recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cortijo Valverde is a peaceful country hotel, under new ownership since July 2006. We are in the heart of Andalucia, only 45 minutes from Malaga airport and within easy access of Granada, Seville, Marbella, and Mijas. Amazing El Chorro Gorge and the beautiful Ardales Lakes are only 30-minutes away. Perfect for that special vacation destination for either a restful holiday, or a base from which to explore the many treasures that Andalucia has to offer. ... more   less
