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.
