Riverstone Cottage is a modern but characterful single storey building set in a Cortijo above the Spa town of Lanjaron. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or sundowners the 100 square metre roof terrace is the most perfect place to sit and enjoy the stunning all round views and watch the Griffin vultures fly overhead! Both the bedrooms in the Cottage have super king sized beds that will also separate to provide twin beds to suit the needs of the guests together with ensuite bathrooms.The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern and new appliances. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to walking from the door of the cottage, many acequia walks and footpaths thread the land and the famous GR7 is located at the end of the drive. Enjoy wandering through 26 acres of olive and almond groves and come across Rafael, our friendly goatherd with his goats grazing. Riverstone Cottage is one of two properties situated on the Cortijo and each property has its own privacy. There is a shared outdoor pool which is the biggest private pool in Lanjaron at 15 metres long. For those of you who feel energetic, you can do proper lengths in the pool or if you prefer the relaxed version, bob about on a lilo and relax on a sun lounger! For cooler evenings, there is an woodburner set in a homely lounge with plenty of books to choose from in the library.

About Jackie kyte
Hi, I'm passionate about promoting Well Being and I enjoy growing our own food in an Eco friendly environment. I love walking the many routes from our Cortijo with my black Labrador, Hastings and exploring the wonderful environment that the Alpujarras has on offer! My husband Nick and I have four grown up children who love to visit us at the Cortijo to de-stress and recharge whenever possible!
Jackie kyte purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Jackie kyte chose Lanjarón
After searching for almost a decade, we had that 'eureka' moment when we first stumbled upon a wrecked farmhouse and a rather plain single storey building and because of the unique location we knew it was completely the perfect property despite the huge challenge to convert it all to what it is today!
What makes this Cottage unique
Simply, the views are unrivalled here at Cortijo Escolta Alta.

We had a wonderfule stay at Lanjaron in late octobre. The location is perfect (sun all day!), the house is very well equipped and Jackie and Nick have been so lovely and friendly to us! We have been able to do some hikes (one to the high mountain El Caballo more than 3000m), went to the seaside and to Granada. Besides that, we relaxed at the pool or on the terrace.
Thanks a lot! We will come back,
Anke, Klaus, Jan and Mathis
It was very nice to meet you and the family and you were lovely guests to have here! We hope that you enjoyed Córdoba and. Dry much hope to see you back here again soon.

The Balneario (Spa) in the town of Lanjaron is well worth a visit to sample some of the many therapies offered. The last Moorish castle is located in Lanjaron and you can climb up into it and for amazing views, free of charge. Open air concerts are performed most nights in July and August in the Parque de salao directly opposite the Meson el Frenazo.
