Holiday Rental House
El Cortilljo is situated in a secluded valley, down a steep track, below the small mountain village of Castaras (800 metres alt), in the Central Alpujarra. The house consists of 2 bedrooms, a double and a twin, both have ample storage facilities. A nicely sized, well equipped Kitchen/Diner is open plan incorporating a Lounge area with 3 Seater and 2 Seater settees. The bathroom consists of shower unit, bidet, washbasin and WC. El Cortilljo remains cool throughout the day and a gently breeze can reduce the heat of the night. We provide games, a CD player and CD's with a selection of different artists, an excellent variety of books including walking guides and history of the area. Directly outside the front door is a good sized and shaded patio area with table and chairs and a Gas BBQ,...El Cortilljo is situated in a secluded valley, down a steep track, below the small mountain village of Castaras (800 metres alt), in the Central Alpujarra.

We provide games, a CD player and CD's with a selection of different artists, an excellent variety of books including walking guides and history of the area. Directly outside the front door is a good sized and shaded patio area with table and chairs and a Gas BBQ, leading from this is a large play area which used to be the 'threshing circle'. The private pool is oval shaped, the deep end is less than 6ft and entry and exit is via wide concrete steps in the shallow end. The views from El Cortilljo are panoramic looking both down the valley to the Contraviesa and towards the village of Castaras. We brought the property in November 2011, having seen it we knew we had to buy it, we sold up in the UK and have not looked back. We live in the Large Cortilljo which partly consists of the ruins of a mill dating back to 1750. Amongst the 39 acres we grow almonds, olives, figs and are pretty much self sufficient in relation to fruit and vegetables. We keep Chickens and eggs are generally available. There is only one track down to us so there is no passing traffic and we are surrounded by miles of unspoilt countryside. Although we live within the same grounds we respect peoples privacy but should you wish to join us for a glass of local wine we are always glad to share our experiences of the area and to ,listen to details of your day. The beauty of living here is the seclusion where you can hear the birdsong and the stream gently meandering through the valley, at night there us no light pollution making it excellent for star gazing. We recommend you arrive in daylight to assist you in orientation. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTAR/GR/01247More
