In planning a week-long motorcycle tour of Andalucia with my brother, I selected this venue for 3 nights based on the central location to major cities & beautiful amenities. After actually arriving, we were blown away by the property and the attentiveness of our hosts. Communicating prior to our stay, it was great to be welcomed with a kitchen stocked with groceries to relax after touring Córdoba. We did excursions to El Torcal/El Chorro and Granada before moving on. Highly recommend this cozy retreat to anyone touring the region. Peter
Cortijo las Rosas is best described as magical. Not the kind of magical that includes unicorns, but the kind that creates a love at first sight. Our casita was spotless, the hosts were extremely kind and caring, the mountains were lush and beautiful, the typical welcoming Spanish countryside-vibes were all around and we left the place with the feeling we should have booked those extra days. Thank you for everything!
We had a truly relaxing time at Cortijo Las Rosas. The casita was well furnished, comfortable and we enjoyed using the wood-burning stove during the cool spring evenings. Marylynne and Gillian are wonderful hosts and the setting is lovely. We especially enjoyed the birdsong – nightingales, cuckoo, hoopoe, serin and many more singing away!
We had a wonderful stay at Cortijo Las Rosas. Gillian and Marylynne keep this rural traditional Cortijo perfectly maintained and combine the traditional architecture with tasteful Interior decoration and modern amenities. Gillian and Marylynne were of caring politeness, never intruding. Communication went perfectly right from the start. The Cortijo is located in a quiet place with wonderful views from each room, Clear night skies, singing birds in the morning, humming bees, the scent of roses, tasty herbs. The nearest Village Fuentes de Cesna can be reached with E-Bike within 5 minutes for getting fresh bread and foods. The small towns in the surrounding are charming. We enjoyed serious cycling, Tours to Granada, Cordoba, Antequera, Caminito del Rey and of course the Pool.
By far and away the best Airbnb I have ever stayed at, and I’ve been travelling round Spain for 2 months! They have thought of every detail and more, a particular favourite was the ice cubes of freshly squeezed local lemons! The casitas are impeccable and Gillian and Marylynne couldn’t have been more kind/ helpful. Even when I asked if they happened to have a copy of ‘Driving Over Lemons’ and had explained that I was driving round Spain, I came back from a walk to a pile of books about Spain including said book. It was very hard to leave, but I will definitely be back! Thank you!
We had a great time at the Cortijo! Gillian and Marylynne are the best hosts we ever had. We had some issues with our rental car and they helped us where they could and made our stay more than comfortable. The Cortijo is beautiful, super clean and the view from the pool area is just stunning. We couldn‘t ask for more! Thanks again for everything. We come will back when baby Ella can take a dip in the pool 🙂
The perfect getaway place. We first stayed at Las Rosas in 2010 and have been back about 5 times. Every visit has been magical, with lots of sun to go with the amazing views. There are 3 casitas which share a pool and a sun terrace, but there is plenty of room and it doesn’t seem crowded. We’ve stayed in 2 of the 3 casitas, which are beautifully kitted out in a way that reflects the traditional style of rural Spain, but with large comfy sofas! There is an optional welcome pack which is excellent value for money and is just the thing when arriving from the airport with no enthusiasm for a supermarket trip. There is a small supermarket within walking distance, but a car is pretty much essential, both for the bigger supermarket at Rute and exploring the countryside and surrounding towns, Cordoba, Malaga etc. The owners, Marylynne and Gilly, live on site and are splendid hosts, with lots of advice and tips, and on one early spring stay when the nights were somewhat chilly, the loan of a hot water bottle. It’s probably my favourite holiday destination, and we’re looking forward to returning!
Las Rosas is the perfect antidote to urban stress and email addiction. I absolutely love going there! I feel as if I’ve got younger each time. Favourite things include: early morning swims, a glass of wine at sunset, watching the swallows dip down to the pool, beautifully clean and comfortable bedrooms, lovely and dark at night, incredible starry skies, and so quiet that you can easily oversleep! One late spring visit, it was cold at night. So we fired up the wood stove and transformed the evening in minutes – more usually it’s blissfully warm, so T-shirt and shorts all the time. In summer, we’d often light the barbecue on our private patio. Hilly walks with grand views. The views and the holiday experience are truly worth every second of the drive. Highly recommended.
Outstanding level of hospitality with many small, thoughtful touches which really make it a home from home. The hosts provide excellent directions to the property and local attractions – very useful, as maps of area were rather inaccurate.
We had a very nice stay at Cotijo las Rosas. We stayed at casita Galgo and it is a perfect place for 2 persons. It was nicely decorated and very clean. Everything you would ever think about was provided. The option, to have a Welcome Pack, is very good, it was very complete. The location was fantastic and the sights at the swimming pool are spectacular. The surroundings are amazing to explore. Gillian and Marylynne are very good hosts, very helpful and friendly. We would recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere
