Wow, the Cortijo La Escanuela is a special place. I spent several days here in June and had an incredible experience. The house is very well maintained, I found everything clean, organized, and working well. The pool is a life saver and is perfect for cooling off after a day of exploring the nearby towns, beaches, or mountains (breathtaking views of the Alpujarras) which are all within a short drive. The views over the cortijo-filled valley outside of the home is beautiful, and provides a perfect setting to watch the sunset. The owner of La Escanuela is an extremely fun, friendly, and kind woman who made my stay more enjoyable just by talking to me- she has created a great location for a relaxing vacationthat is suitable for families, couples, or groups of friends to enjoy. This place has something for everyone and if you stay here you will surely enjoy your visit.

A few steps outside the comfortable and inviting cottage, we were transported to another world of spectacular vistas and the sounds of a bucolic life far from the cities and crowds. The avocados from the trees on the property were an extra treat. Following an afternoon relaxing in hammocks on the patio, we explored the charming town of Orgiva and its many restaurants, especially Flor de Limonero. Cortijo la Escanuela is a great escape and a found treasure.
