“A perfect getaway”
Reviewed September 19, 2009

This was the most perfect place to unwind and relax. Set amongst tranquil olive groves in a beautiful location, it feels a little remote but this adds to its charm and we really can't recommend Cortijo las Rosas highly enough.

The casita we stayed in (Liebre) was flawless. Well appointed, really comfortable, clean, spacious and with a lovely private outdoor courtyard, ideal for eating al fresco or having a barbecue. In fact everything there has been well thought out, beautifully designed and stylish. The swimming pool is fantastic with views over the hills and we spent much of our time there; either in the pool, lying by it reading in the shade of the olive trees, or in the evening watching the stars and the swallows - sounds clichéd, but it really was without fault.

Gilly and Marylynne are perfect hosts and made us feel at home straight away, they really care that you enjoy your time there. Always ready to answer your questions and give advice on the area, but never ever in your way or intrusive. Their driving instructions on how to reach them and places to visit are impossibly spot on and the welcome pack we ordered with them was ideal and well worth ordering.

As mentioned it is a little remote and the last part of the road is windy and a bit rough, but we had no problems with our hire car on it and just took it slowly. Saying that, getting around is no problem, it's a short drive to the local supermarket at Rute and we did day trips to both the Alhambra Palace and Cordoba. We could easily have gone out and seen more, but to be honest it was too relaxing to stay at the casita and walk through the olive groves that we didn't feel the need to.

Again, we highly recommend a stay there.

After spending a week exploring Malaga and the Spanish enclave of Melilla in North Africa (both well worth visiting) we'd booked our last week in Spain in Cortijo Las Rosas, the idea being that we'd just get a chance to relax and unwind somewhere peacfeul. We weren't disappointed.

The trip up is easy enough from Malaga, although in their infinite wisdom the car hire company had subsituted my request for a small 4x4 with A/C to a huge jeep without it. Cortijo Las Rosas is quite remote, which is part of it's charm, but the last miles can be a bit windy and rough - let's just say the jeep wasn't the best car for this sort of territory. In fact I find it hard to think of any country that I'd actually choose to drive the damn thing (it's more suited to a war than a holiday), but that's another story.

We arrived very late and very tired, but Gilly and Marylynne where there to meet us and we instantly felt welcomed and at home. Our own casita (Galgo) was simply but beautifully fitted out, and the welcome box that we'd pre-ordered was indeed very welcome, especially the bottle of wine in the fridge!

The next day, and to be honest for most of those that followed, were spent relaxing around the pool, eating late, strolling in the olive groves and popping out to local places such as Iznajar and Priego de Cordoba. We'd planned trips to larger places, as the villa is not too far from cities such as Granada and Cordoba, but it was just so relaxing to be at the villa that we didn't really feel the need to be anywhere else.

I'd highly recommend Cortijo Las Rosas - it's not just that it's in great location and well fitted out, but most importantly that your hosts really do care that you enjoy your stay and will go out of their way to ensure it. That's something that's hard to find sometimes, so when you do find it I think it's worth passing it on!

Cortijo Las Rosas in Andalucia, Spain is the most wonderful place to unwind. Set in the midst of an olive grove you can decide just how much activity you want to do. Relax by the fantastic, private pool; walk through the countryside; visit the local villages; experience a true Spanish market; ride a mountainbike, treat yourself to a massage or just sip some wine while reading your book under the shady trees.
Marylynne & Gilly are totally committed to providing you with a unique experience. Both are well travelled and they have literally thought of everything you could possibly need or want during your stay. All the casitas are spacious, beautifully appointed and just so comfortable. The ability to open them up for a big group to share or stay private for individuals is a great feature. Private outdoor courtyards and gorgeous communal areas give you the flexibility to dine alone or share a meal with the friends you are sure to make with the hosts or other guests.
Fresh eggs & farm produce from the neighbours were a good way to start our holiday and it just got better every day.
Situated at the crossroads in Southern Spain all the main attractions of Andalucia are easily reachable by car for a day trip.
