“Perfect family retreat”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Another fabulous two weeks at Cortijo Jacaranda. So relaxing and perfect for small kids. Booked for next year before we left! Lorna and her family are absolutely lovely (and kind and patient!) and the setting couldn't be more ideal if you are looking for a peaceful holiday (even!) with kids.

“Gorgeous tranquil rural Spanish retreat!”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Amazing rural Spain at its best! Short drive from the airport up into the hills yet only 10-15 minutes from town and the the great tapas bars and restaurants! Your accomodation is well equipped and a few metres from the pool in complete privacy with incredible 360' views of rural Spain! Very clean and the hosts cannot do enough to ensure you have a wonderful stay! Take a book, camera and plenty of sunscreen but you won't want to miss this beautiful retreat away from the tourists and I would highly recommend to both couples, families and groups! Definitely a place to unwind and relax! My kind of paradise!

“This villa was a gem of a find, easy holiday, relaxing and peaceful”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just returned from a a great stay at Cortijo Jacaranda. The facilities were excellent, beautiful pool and BBQ area. Great surroundings and brilliant hosts Lorna and Lee. Services offered were a real bonus for us, the welcome basket of food and drinks on arrival, the lovely little evening bar and giant chess set kept us all entertained and the free babysitting for an evening with added lifts to the restaurant were a welcome treat.The beauty services offered by Lorna herself were also excellent value for money. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area but you do need to drive. Roads weren't great to the property but that wasnt too much of a hindrance.

“5 star accommodation ”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Wow, what can I say. Just had an amazing week staying at Cortijo Jacaranda. Lee and Lorna couldn't have been more accommodating. The Cassita was immaculate and very comfortable, had everything I needed and more! The pool area was lovely, very well kept, the pool was the perfect temperature and there is a shaded area with table and chairs to enjoy your lunch out of the midday sunshine should you wish plus a bbq to use to spend your evenings in the peaceful surroundings.
It is such a peaceful location with easy access (by car) to the local towns. We went to a great Tapas restaurant nearby one night after it was recommended by Lorna and it did not disappoint. However, I highly recommend the paella night as cooked by Lee, it was absolutely delicious.
I cannot rave about this accommodation enough, so much so that I've already booked to return next year. I loved it.
Great location, great accommodation, great facilities and lovely couple. What more can you want for a holiday.
Thank you Lee and Lorna. See you next year!

“The perfect peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

It is a rarity to achieve, but I have just managed to have a lovely relaxing holiday with my four very young children at Cortijo Jacaranda. The setting is stunning, the Casitas are lovely and have everything you could possibly need, even for young children, the pool is the cleanest private pool I've ever seen and the perfect temp. The little ones could all stand up in the little pool and the big pool was deep enough for adults to dive into. Just perfect. Highly recommended, we have been home for a week and have already booked again for next year! Ps Lorna is lovely and a great host :)
