This place is unbelievable! My wife and I went on a trip through Spain with another couple. We started in Barcelona and ended in Seville with a 3 day stop off at Cortijo Prado. While staying in the city was great, this was the part of the trip that my wife and I were most looking forward to and we were not disappointed. I can't say enough about this place. The road in is quite a trip, I was driving so it was actually pretty fun. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The prices are incredibly reasonable. The views were fantastic. There were a few other couples there as well, but there was plenty of space so, except for some time hanging out by the pool, you wouldn't have known there was anyone else around. Ludwig is one hell of a character, a man who is a truly a jack of all trades, very friendly and personable. He sent us off on a couple hour hike through the mountains on a beautifull trail that took us all around the area. There are plenty of cute little restaurants with great food in the area, or you could bring food in and cook your own. Everything you could want in a place to stay. As you can read from what everybody else has said, I would definitely recommend staying here. Nothing bad at all to say about this place.
- 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
