A recently renovated Cortijo, Las Rosas with 3 casitas in the midst of tranquil olive groves. Inspected, recommended and featured in the guidebook 'Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay in Spain 2009 & 2011'.
As well as being within easy reach of the cultural centres of Granada, Codoba, Ronda, Antequera, Seville and Malaga, Las Rosas is very close to a huge lake which provides spectacular views for drivers, walkers and cyclists.
The property is a 1.25 hour drive from both Malaga and Granada airports.
Marylynne and Gillian are well traveled sisters, born in South Africa, schooled in the U.K. and who lived in the Middle East much of their lives. As a mother who self-catered with two children many times, Marylynne has equipped the casitas to the highest level.
Marylynne and Gillian purchased this cottage in 2003
Cortijo las Rosas is situated uniquely placed to provide easy access to the monuments of the great Andalucian cities and yet also give you peace and tranquility beside the pool. A place which gives you a mix of cultural sightseeing and total relaxation.
Situated in the middle of olive groves with wonderful views from the pool side and many of the casitas. Bird song rather than the noise of traffic.
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable au Cortijo Las Rosas. Nous avons bien profité de ce cadre magnifique et du silence de la campagne environnante.Les casitas sont très bien entretenues, l’équipement plus que complet et les deux hôtesses sympathiques et dévouées.
Une très bonne adresse pour alterner vacances reposantes au bord de la piscine et culturelles : Grenade, Cordoue, Baeza et Ubeda ne sont pas très loin.
If lavender, flowering geraniums, whitewashed stone walls in a valley of olives are quintessential images of rural Andalusia then the beautifully restored farmhouse of Cortijo Las Rosas will not disappoint. We stayed in the beautiful two bedroom Casa Liebre and, if it not for the desire to see other nearby parts of southern Spain, we may not have ventured too far from the courtyard, pool and petanque court! The plethora of pool related equipment and board games was of additional delight to our two children who felt most at home.
The location of Cortijo Las Rosas provided for an easy 20 minute walk to the nearby village of Fuentes de Cesna or a 10 minute drive to the beautiful village of Iznajar. We were also able to enjoy easy day trips to iconic locations such as Granada, Cordoba and Ronda. The hosts Gillian and Marylynne were fabulous, from initial enquiries through to arrival instructions and a welcome pack to see us through the first couple of days. They were available for advice and directions throughout our stay and made us and our two children feel very welcome.
After 10 fabulous days we left somewhat heavy of heart and perhaps just a little envious of the life they have created in this most fabulous part of the world. We highly recommend Cortijo Las Rosas as a fantastic getaway for singles, couples or families and plan to revisit ourselves. We have already referred this accommodation to friends and our travel broker.
My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Las Rosa units located atop the Iznajar hills. We loved the setting, the view, the central location to Cordoba, Ronda, Grenada and Nerja. All a day trip away. We loved the olive scent in the air, the birds, the night sky, and the quiet mountain setting. Wonderful paved roads, perfect for walking, bicycling or a daily jog.
The casita was very clean, well stocked, comfortable and private. The pool and grounds are peaceful and the view is one of the best in Spain.
We have thought about how great it would be to rent all three units with friends or family for a personal vacation. It is the perfect place to do a road or mountain bike vacation with bicycling friends. For the non bikers, the pool is a place where family and friends could enjoy each other, and there is a small village within walking distance, not to mention the above day trips for any interest.
The hosts were helpful and attentive. They care about their guest property and work very hard to keep the property up to a five star standard. We hope some day to visit with them again.
( The casita Libre has lower ceilings down stairs if you are a tall person. The upstairs is vaulted. My husband is 6 ft. 3 inches and he did all right. If any taller, I recommend one of the other two units. However, it is a very authentic casita experience)
If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy a truly Andalusian experience then don't miss Cortijo Las Rosas. The place is just amazing, great "casita", you can go and explore the surrounding cities of Cordoba and Granada or just stay in your "patio" and enjoy a bottle of wine with bird chirping as the only distraction. Thanks for the warm welcome of the owners and their helpful information provided. We will go back for sure!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cortijo las Rojas. Gillian and Marylynne were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Our casita was perfect--simple and charming and with all of the amenities we needed. We loved the pool and the beautiful surroundings. All in all--a great visit. We would highly recommend it and hope to return someday!
Nous sommes restés une semaine chez Marylynne et Gillian.
Avant d'arriver nous étions déjà sûrs d'être bien accueillis car elles nous ont envoyé beaucoup de mails très sympas avec des recommandations très utiles.
L'arrivée chez elles grâce à leurs indications était donc très facile.
Après un accueil très chaleureux nous avons donc découvert cette ancienne ferme magnifiquement restaurée et d'une propreté exemplaire.
Nous avons apprécié les attentions et les conseils de nos hôtes tout au long de la semaine.
C'est une très bonne location que nous vous recommandons.

Anfang October waren meine Frau und ich Gäste im Casita Liebre. Wir verbrachten 14 wundervolle Tage, weit weg von Lärm und Stress. Die Gastgeberinnen waren extrem aufmerksam und fürsorglich, ihr Willkommenspaket war mehr als reichlich und wunderbar zusammengestellt. Auch die Restaurant- und Besichtigungsvorschläge waren zahlreich und zutreffend.
In den zwei Wochen konnten wir sowohl die Umgebung erforschen als auch die Highlights in Andalusien besuchen. Dies erforderte einige Fahrerei, aber auch die hat in der verkehrsarmen und ruhigen Umgebung viel Spaß gemacht.
Das Quartier war perfekt eingerichtet, in der Küche waren alle Gewürze und Küchengeräte opulent vorhanden. Die Einrichtung war individuell und geschmackvoll. Nach dem Besichtigungsprogramm des Tages luden Pool und Terrasse zur Erholung ein. Es war ein perfekter Urlaub.
Kleiner Tipp: ich bin mit über zwei Meter etwas lang geraten, da ist das "Hasenhaus" mit seinen niedrigen Decken nicht die schlaueste Wahl.
Ideally situated, it can be reached with a journey of about 1-1/2 hours from Malaga and a little less from Granada Airport. It is also located on the crossroads between all the major cities in Andalucia, allowing for day trips to Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Malaga as well as the towns and beaches of the Costa del Sol.
Set up in the mountains some 8 km from the town of Iznajar, Cortijo Las Rosas is located close to the largest lake in Anadalucia. This provides us with an inland beach right on the edge of the Subbetica, which is a national park dotted with those beautiful ‘white villages’.
