“Beautiful house in stunning rural location”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our two week stay at Cortijo Cuscurro was really lovely. The house easily accommodated the twelve of us and with enough space so that we never felt we were on top of each other. High lights were the pool area with amazing views, the gorgeous and thankfully cool outside seating area and the well equipped kitchen. It was VERY hot while we were there and the house stayed reasonably cool although the upstairs bedrooms without aircon were uncomfortable but that's a price to pay for 36 degree heat!
Lisa and Julian, the owners, were incredibly helpful and went out of their way to provide support without being intrusive - we loved the home grown vegetables and were so grateful to Lisa's support when one of our children grew ill. We loved the visits from their dogs Henry and Elvis - definitely encouraged by the children!
We made several trips down to the Beach at Torre Del Mar - lovely Spanish resort with lots for the children to do - great floating icebergs, slides and lots of good restaurants - definitely worth the 30 min drive. As a change the swimming pool in Riogordo was fun. Riogordo had all the essentials with supermarkets, good butchers and veg shops.
It's a very beautiful rural area well off the beaten track. Cars are essential and the track to the house tacks a little getting used to!
All in all a really happy and relaxed holiday.

“Great Family Getaway”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We, (that's all 11 of our 3 generation family) really loved our week at Cortijo Cuscurro, it's so relaxing by the pool, with sun loungers and parasols for shade, not forgetting the hot tub!! Inside there is everything you need, a great kitchen with a large oven and massive fridge, ideal for chilling the beers!!

The Villa is about 5 clicks outside of the local town Riogordo, which is a traditional Spanish village, with a few bars where you can watch the world go by with the locals, for only 1 euro for a small beer!!

The village has two small supermarkets and a great butchers, bakers, fish mongers, fruit shop etc, where we got most of our provisions and food for the barbecue, it was so inexpensive, I didn't realise what good value Spain is!!

You will need a car (we had two 7 seaters), to explore the surrounding areas, including a great day at the beach at Torres del Mar, which was about 30 minutes away and Torremolinos/Benalmadena around an hour away, but both are well worth a visit.

Well, I can't say much more about Cortijo Cuscurro, except that if you are thinking of booking the property, don't hesitate, you'll kick yourself if you miss out on experiencing this beautiful place!!

We stayed at Cortijo Cuscurro for a week with friends and family to celebrate Shaun's 50th Birthday (13 adults and one toddler). We had an amazing time. The farmhouse was so beautiful, oozing character, we felt as though we were staying in a National Trust property! It was well equipped with everything you could have needed, with quality furnishings and decor throughout, and beautifully spacious.
The cottage was smaller, but equally characterful.
The gardens were just lovely, with lilac and jasmin in bloom. The outdoor areas were brill, we enjoyed chillaxing by the pool and in the hot tub, and the courtyard and outdoor dining area was excellent for joining as a big group for evening meals and drinks, with the very convenient large gas barbeque. With swallows darting in and out, nesting above our heads, fairy lights strung around,this was an amazing space to gather together. We had 6 out of our 7 nights here, eating like kings, drinking, laughing, dancing, singing, clowning around, and then dozing off!
The Cortijo is remote, and car hire is recommended for shopping and trips out. We had a lovely day at the beach in Nerja, and a visit to Comares is highly recommended; amazing views and so tranquil. Local restaurant Casa Ortega - 8 minutes drive was great, lovely relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food and really cheap. Equally nice for lunch or evening meals.
Julian and Lisa were extremely helpful supporting us before and during our stay; organising a local lady to make us a birthday cake, booking the restaurant and organising transport, stocking up with groceries before we arrived, ordering a wood pile for the fire pit. They were really knowledgeable about local stuff and were really happy to advise us on a variety of things; where to visit, where to shop,
recommendations from the menu at Ortega's. The stars in the sky at night were incredible, and several nights we saw shooting stars, it felt magical.
Several members of our group went walking, the area is great for this, the scenery was lovely with lemons, oranges and almonds growing all around. Riogordo is lovely, so pretty, the locals so friendly and delighful. We all felt very sad when the time came to come home, we had all had a fantastic holiday, and felt priviledged to have stayed in this beautiful house in such an amazing part of the world, a very secial place.
Thank you Julian and Lisa and we hope to visit you again before too long.

Fantastic holiday. Wonderful villa, wonderful setting. Perfect for getting away from it all. Everything about the place is wonderful, from the setting to the villa itself. Lisa and Julian make sure everything is perfect for you and are wonderful hosts. Would highly recommend a stay here, will most certainly return soon !!

“Fantastic villa in rural Andalusia”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was a great holiday and the villa was everything we could have wished for. I would echo the sentiments of the other reviewers exactly. Lisa and Julian have got the balance just right in respect of being helpful and giving you plenty of space. I would query '20 minutes to the coast' as it took us nearer 40 minutes, but driving in such a stunning landscape and on good roads is a pleasure. Thanks for a brilliant, restful holiday

HI
Thank you for your review on Cortijo Cuscurro. We are so pleased you had such a good stay here in Riogordo.
Yes, it can take a little longer to get to the coast, but there is a cut through that you can use, unfortunately it was cut off while you were here, so having to go through Riogordo to get to the Lake road does add 5 minutes to the journey. They have opened the road now, so it is a little quicker. Its a great drive though as you say. And a stop at the lake for a coffee on the way down to admire those stunning views is a must !!!! Hope to see you again sometime.

“Fabulous villa in perfect surroundings”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

This well equipped villa was our home for three weeks with a group including a range of children from 1 to 14. A lot of care has been taken for those finishing touches to the furnishings and making it feel like a real home rather than a standard holiday let.
The location is very quiet and unspoilt with breathtaking views. It's a very rural Spanish experience and you quickly come to terms with the way of life, relaxing!
Any little wrinkles were quickly sorted by the owners. There are so many spaces that you can simply chill out, sunbathe, a dip in the warm swimming pool or relax in the hot tub whenever you fancy. The children loved swimming under the stars and the colourful well lit pool area.
The villa is very private with no immediate neighbours apart from the odd herd of goats that you can hear in the distance.
We loved the covered outside dining area which was a real focus in sharing our meals including the three baby swallows that nested close by.
The owners lived in the adjoining property but were very respectful of your privacy and were so helpful with lots of tips and kindly organised transport and the local restaurant to celebrate a 21st birthday. We seemed to spend most days celebrating birthdays from a first birthday to one that was well above 21!
You need to be prepared to travel to the larger supermarkets but the local shops and small restaurants are a real experience and very inexpensive. You don't get close to the usual 'Costa' prices as the shops serve the local Spanish community.
Thank you to Lisa and Julian (along with the loveable dogs, Henry and Elvis) for a memorable holiday (and the fresh vegetables from your garden) and I hope that you have continuing success with your properties . I hope we can come back at some point in the future but recommend your villa to larger groups and families for a great base for any holiday stay

Thank you for taking the time to review Cortijo Cuscurro. We are very pleased you had a great stay here in Riogordo.
August is always a very exciting time with lots of local fiestas.

We were pleased that we were here to be on hand for your needs during your 3 week stay. As you found out, we are in a separate property down on the plot below, detatched completely from The Cortijo Cuscurro and Cottage , therefor we are always cautious to respect all our guests privacy during their stay., yet we are here should the need arise.

Some guests come and go, without us seeing them at all apart from when maintaining the large gardens, pool and spa. Others are happy to have us locally for any help or advise they may need during their stay.

3 birthday's all in 3 weeks was first for us, and we were so happy to be of assistance to make these occasions fun and easy for you all. It was a pleasure meeting you all, especially the youngest member of your group. Bless her.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We always love to have repeat guests. We have several repeat guests this year, which is very encouraging.
Elvis and Henry do love to make an appearance., especially when guests like giving tit bits!! Having said this, if guests do not like animals, they are always kept away from The Cortijo !! Respect for privacy is top of the list and as you know, this is what most people love about The Cortijo. Privacy, seclusion, views and Chillaxing!!
Look forward to welcoming you back again sometime. Lisa and Julian.
