The setting – Accommodation
Set high in the Granada countryside, next to Jaen province and amidst magnificent views we’ll have the use of a cortijo ( typical Andalucian farmhouse). Surrounded by a Mediterranean landscape, bathed by the aroma of wild herbs like rosemary and thyme and away from noise and busy life, we’ll enjoy an inspiring vista of olive trees and ancient oaks. We’ll enjoy the best of Spain, it’s blue skies and sunny days. Because we’ll be staying at a high-altitude setting we’ll be spared from the scorching heat that makes Andalucia a no-go area during this time of the year. Still, if you need cooling, you can enjoy a cold drink by the swimming-pool.
The cortijos have been lovingly looked after and although they provide modern comforts, they have retained their rustic ambience.
