The first thing you notice is the pool, well maintained and with excellent views. The staff are friendly, the food is simple but good and there is an excellent atmosphere. Our room was cozy though they have a septic tank and warn against putting loo roll down the loo !! That mere minor issue apart, we loved the place and... More

The place was amazing. What a view. We arranged for dinner and had a great home meal. Good call to go with the bottle of wine. The host, Celeste, was simply wonderful. Both my wife and I highly recommend.

We just finished a one night's stay here during the off season. I wish we had more time to stay because Celeste is truly one of the nicest hostess ever! She's the perfect combination of friendly and helpful yet gives you your own space. The resort and rooms are as they appear online. This is a somewhat rustic experience but... More

This offers very traditional cortijo rooms in a fabulous location just above Nijar town. The owner is very friendly, and helpful. Rooms are small but well equipped with ensuite facilities. The views from the cortijo are excellent, especially from the breakfast on which the very good breakfast is served.

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

(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
