CORTIJO

Villanueva de la Concepcion Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Cortijo 3 double ensuite bedrooms / Casita 1 double bedroom ensuite

The property is a typical Andalucian, turn of the century stone built farmhouse , tastefully converted by the owners David and Diana Worthy who in a 'former life' ran a very successful ceramics business - CRICH POTTERY , back in Derbyshire , England and are now turning their hands at being part time farmers tending to a small herd of Alpacas ( and other 4 legged friends ) which they keep here . The accommodation consists of a main Cortijo and small Casita which can be rented individually or both together.The Cortijo has 3 double bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom , large living/dining area , open log fireplace and kitchen with all normal facilities including washing machine. It will sleep up to 7 persons.

The Casita consists of 1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom incorporating walk in shower, split level living area with double Futon for extra sleeping and large kitchen/dining room. It will accommodate up to 4 persons.

Both houses have satellite TV plus DVD/VHS and WiFi internet access. They have large, private, patio areas with lots of outdoor seating, BBQ etc and private swimming pool (7x 4 m). For the winter months the Cortijo has central heating radiators and the Casita portable gas heaters ( extra charge ).

Please note guests renting the Cortijo can reserve the whole property for a small extra cost depending on season.

We invite you to come and stay with us on our small farm, where we have created , in this privileged environment, what we feel to be an ideal rural retreat. With stunning views to the Mediterranean coast and the surrounding sierras, this is the perfect location for anyone wishing to experience the real Spain. Enjoy the many wonderful animals we have here - alpacas, donkeys, peafowl, hens, turkeys, cats and dogs. You may not want to venture out but if you do there are numerous opportunities in the area for all kinds of outdoor activities such as cycling (mountain bike & road) walking, rock climbing, horse riding and bird watching. The ancient town of Antequera is only 25 min drive away, plus you are ideally situated to make day trips to the historical cities of Granada (1.5 h drive), Cordoba (2 h), Seville (2 h). Plenty to do and see, with the city of Malaga and all the attractions of the Costa del Sol only a short drive away (40 min) should you wish for it.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Diana & David ,

We are of an age sufficient to realise the strange and marvellous manners by which memories are made. Your efforts of at least a decade - all the bicycle trips , the research and the rebuilding of this , your promised land - have made possible the bouquet of remembrances which we now hold. Tomorrow we return to our land of Vikings and all winter we shall hold these images free from frost ! Thank you for your advice , your hospitality and trust we shall return,

With sincerest appreciation,

Burt , Birgit & Elke

Just 40 minutes inland from Malaga and 25 minutes from the ancient town of Antequera - known as the crossroads of Andalusia. You have the possibility to make day trips to some of Spain's most famous cities - Seville , Cordoba and Granada, this is rural Spain at it's best. Villanueva de la Concepcion is the closest village at 3 km. With 3000 plus inhabitants it boasts numerous small bars and restaurants, post office, banks with ATM, 24 hour medical centre, swimming pool, sports centre, several small supermarkets, fishmongers, butchers, bread shops, tobacconist plus a whole variety of other shops as well as the customary range of typical Spanish fiestas and other events. On our doorstep we have the immense limestone mass known as the El Torcal Natural Parque, which rises to 1336m above sea level and is home to the Imperial Eagle and the Spanish Ibex. We have El Chorro gorge and the lakes nearby plus the beautiful town of Ronda. So much to do and see... or you could just laze by the pool and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Ski: Ski in the Sierra Nevada Granada, approx 1.5 hour's drive from here.
