Our beautifully restored home and private pool is situated in a secluded and peaceful location surrounded by terraced gardens and borders full of exotic plants, cacti and trees. We offer luxury accommodation to immediately help you relax as we know how important and special your holiday is to you.
The Cortijo has breathtaking panoramic mountain views and looks towards the hill top village of Comares which took the Christians four hundred years to re-capture from the Moors. The little whitewashed village glistens in the sunshine and twinkles with lights at night. This small and unspoilt area of La Axarquia in Andalucia – to the north and east of Malaga, is still an area untouched by tourism and is mainly agricultural. The high rugged mountains of the sierras are in the distance turning purple at dusk and the Mediterranean coast is to the south. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and wildlife.
We have lovingly restored the L shaped Cortijo and grounds carefully over eleven years but the major work took over eighteen months full time keeping the original style and features using traditional materials wherever possible. It has a wonderful history which we wished to preserve. The ceilings are beamed, the windows are shuttered and the heavy wooden doors have authentic handmade grills, nails called clavos and hand made door knockers. The Cortijo is cool in the summer and cosy and warm in the winter.
The colours of the landscape are constantly changing in the distance contrasting with those close by, the bright red hibiscus, the yellow of the mimosas, the oranges and lemons in the garden, the rash of almond blossom in Springtime to the red earth and the profusion of wild flowers, pale green of the olive trees and the strong leaves of the yuccas against the blue sky.
If you need a quiet peaceful break in a relaxed and very comfortable atmosphere yet within easy reach of modern facilities, the lakes and the sea, then Cortijo El Terral is for you.
