A little gem
Just returned to rainy Yorkshire (UK) from a glorious week in sunny Salobrena at this delightful, good value, cortijo. I do not have enough adjectives to describe the location or the little farmhouse, nestled a mile out of the town (very handy for the Lidl supermarket!). The house is a perfect home from home; an array of useful extra items, bottles of water, games, books, magazines and toiletries. The interior is homely, light, clean and comfortable (although a firmer double bed mattress could be a good idea) and also there is plenty of bed linen and towels. We also liked the large ‘walk in’ powerful shower in the bathroom. The exterior is outstanding, with the pleasant shaded front veranda, the pool (with the most spectacular views) and various places to relax and soak up the sunshine. However the icing on the cake has to be the roof terrace. There are literally 360 degree views of; the sea (about 2km away), Salobrena castle (even more spectacular at night) on the hill above whitewashed houses spilling down below it, then the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the distance.
As mentioned the house is conveniently placed, in a quiet rural location with no immediate neighbours (about 1km off the main road) a short 5 minute drive to the supermarket, the town and the beach. Salobrena is a great little Spanish town, full of actual locals as well as Spanish holiday makers, a few other nationalities on holiday and hardly any Brits. The old traditional part of town, leading up to the castle is delightful and then the castle itself is well worth a visit, even just to experience the jaw dropping views. Along the beach front there are various restaurants, cafes, and bars with varied and reasonably priced menus. It was also easy to reach other places of interest; Frigiliana, Nerja, Granada.
We were warmly welcomed by the very friendly members of the owners’ family and with my poor Spanish and their bit of English (and the miracle of ‘Google translate’!) we got on fine. We even went with them to a Flamenco dancing show, put on by a group of local ladies and girls, and attended by all their families. We felt honored to be part of a local celebration, not something put on for the tourists. We rarely return to holiday destinations, let alone to a specific accommodation, however on this occasion I think there is a strong chance that there will be a return visit in the future!
Muchos Gracias Jose y Virginia (the family of the owner Isabel)
Lovely Little Escape From Stress
This casa is located in a very rural location accessed along a rough road and surrounded by trees on 2 sides. We arrived nearby and could not find it but Izabella, the owner, was exceptionally helpful and arranged to meet us and follow her there. It is a lovely rustic small casa/house on one level, perfect size for us and our two small dogs. There was a welcome pack of bottled water, various food items and there were plenty of other items available to make a stay comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and sunshine and it was a lovely home from home. The covered outside seating area is great for breakfast and evening BBQ/meals. Jose, Izabella's father has a allotment opposite one side of the casa and offered us tomatoes and vegetables/fruit. We will definately look at booking a further holiday there. Thanks to Izabella and Jose.
Very nice house, very enjoyable stay
The house is a little way outside Salobrena, as can be seen from the photo, but it is compact and cosy with a nice little pool and we really enjoyed our stay. The owners are very helpful and generous and supplied many, if not all, of the basics you need. We would have no problem at all going back to it.
Great holiday in lovely surroundings
Excellent location just outside town amongst the orchards with wonderful views of the town and across to the mountains. Easy 20 minutes walk into town if you don't want to drive. Lovely little pool. Recommended!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa
Lovely quiet property in rural setting but close to town. Fantastic views.
The house was very well appointed and the owners had left lots of helpful consumables such a bottled water, cooking condiments, toiletries etc. They were very welcoming and available to help when needed. With views of the castle and coast one way and the snow topped Sierra Nevada the other side, it was a great place to sit by the pool and relax. We would definitely recommend this place.
