I needed to get away from crowds and find a really good place to relax and unwind that was central to a lot is sites. I found G&M to have the perfect place I highly recommend stay here. Pool and paradise. The rooms were outstanding. And G&M were the perfect hostesses. They could not do enough for me. Thanks guys So much”
We stayed here for five nights after a hectic spell of sightseeing and we couldn’t have picked a better place to relax and unwind. Cortijo las Rosas is in an idyllic spot amongst olive groves with no near neighbours but village shops only a 20 minute walk away. Morning coffee by the pool watching the swallows swooping is highly recommended, as is star gazing – fabulous night skies here.
Gillian and Marylynne are the perfect hosts, they could not have done more to make sure we were comfortable and that we had everything we needed, they were always on hand without being intrusive. The welcome pack of provisions was excellent and they also provide wonderful local information and routes to get to places. Thoroughly recommend this as a place for day trips to the likes of Cordoba and Granada or as a perfect place for chilling out.
We stayed in Casita Liebre, it was beautifully furnished in a traditional style with everything we could have needed, it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The private courtyard was a great place to sit out and eat meals.
Thank you to Gillian and Marylynne for a great stay, we can’t recommend this place highly enough.
Just back from Las Rosas … and can’t wait to go back! Not only is the view from the Cortijo stunning, surrounded by olive groves and ideally situated for visiting Andalucian cultural treasures, but also the property has been tastefully renovated and decorated. Above all Marylynne and Gillian are the most charming and delightful hosts you can imagine, bending over backwards to make sure their guests are happy and comfortable. I can’t recommend the place highly enough – I’ve already told all my friends about it and will definitely return, hopefully with my whole family! Marylynne and Gillian it was a real pleasure to meet you. G & A
After two weeks in the fall of 2013, we, a German couple, spent another fortnight in June 2018 at Cortijo las Rosas. Marylynne and Gillian are perfect hosts, they keep the place spotless and will care for your needs. On request they provide a really gorgeous „welcome-pack that meets your appetite for much longer than the first evening. The cortijo is in the midst of olive groves, very quiet, with a large inviting pool area. Shopping is at quite a distance, but you will want to go out anyway, visit the Andalusian highlights of Cordoba, Granada and Malaga – Seville is a bit out of the way. But there are gems right at your doorstep too: the town of Iznájar on a steep hill, dominating its reservoir, Priego de Cordoba with its baroque architecture, and many more. Gourmets will find a state-of-the-art restaurant in Algarinejo, just 12 kilometers from home. We very much recommend Cortijo las Rosas!
Nach zwei Wochen im Herbst 2013 waren wir, ein deutsches Ehepaar, zum zweiten Mal im Juni 2018 für vierzehn Tage im Cortijo las Rosas. Marylynne und Gillian sind perfekte Gastgeberinnen, sie halten das Anwesen tadellos in Ordnung und kümmern sich um alle Bedürfnisse ihrer Gäste. Wenn man will, bereiten sie ein opulentes „Willkommens-Paket“ vor, das den Appetit für mehr als einen Abend zufriedenstellt. Das Anwesen liegt inmitten von Olivenhainen, sehr ruhig, und verfügt über einen einladenden Pool. Zum Einkaufen muss man fahren, aber man will sich ja sowieso in der Gegend bewegen und die andalusischen Magnete Cordoba, Granada und Malaga besuchen – nach Sevilla ist es ein bisschen weit. Touristische Anziehungspunkte gibt es auch direkt „vor der Haustür“: Die Stadt Iznájar liegt auf einem steilen Hügel und thront über einer großen Talsperre, Priego da Cordoba punktet mit seiner Barockarchitektur – und es gibt noch viel mehr. Gourmets können in Algarinejo, nur zwölf Kilometer vom Ferienhaus entfernt, ein hervorragendes Restaurant finden. Wir können Cortijo las Rosas wärmstes empfehlen!
This is a wonderful location for a peaceful holiday, completely away from it all. My husband and I stayed here for two very relaxing weeks in April, during which time we both had significant birthdays. Gillian and Marylynne could not have been more helpful. They recommended restaurants, organised birthday meals and surprises and suggested lovely locations to visit.
On arrival, they upgraded us to a bigger casita, because poor weather meant that our original choice with an outside staircase was suitable. All the casitas are sympathetically decorated and maintained to a comfortable standard with private courtyards. From the pool and patio there are stunning views of olive groves on hillsides.
We divided our time between walking locally, visiting the nearby small towns and villages and going further afield to Granada and the Alhambra. Two weeks was not long enough to experience all that this lovely area has to offer and we will certainly be returning in the near future. It was a stunning place to stay and we enjoyed a truly lovely holiday.
Eerst en vooral twee uiterst vriendelijke gastvrouwen, steeds bereid om hun gasten verder te helpen. Ze gaven ons een goede tip over een lokaal restaurant waar we super lekker hebben gegeten (Casa Piolas, Algarinejo). Het welkomstpakket is ook een echte aanrader. De locatie was enorm mooi gelegen met een mooi uitzicht op de olijfboomgaarden. Verder hebben we ook mooie wandelingen gedaan in de omgeving. Een echte aanrader dus!
First and foremost two extremely friendly hostesses, always ready to help their guests. They gave us a good tip about a local restaurant where we had great food (Casa Piolas, Algarinejo). The welcome package is also highly recommended. The location was very nice with a nice view of the olive groves. Furthermore, we have also made beautiful walks in the area. A real must!
dyllischer Ort, ideal um dem Stress zu entfliehen. Sehr nette Gastgeberinnen, die versuchen jeden Wunsch ihrer Gäste zu ermöglichen.
Idyllic place, ideal to escape stress. Very nice hosts who try to make every wish of their guests possible.
Si vous cherchez un endroit paisible, calme et serein, arrêtez vous chez Gillian et Marylynne. Leur accueil est chaleureux, attentionné, la maison est très coquette, soignée et le lieu est absolument incroyable, loin des foules et des sentiers battus. L’altitude, le lac, les montagnes assurent de la fraîcheur, c’est in véritable enchantement!
Not enough superlatives for this place! We stayed in Casita Liebre with 2 young children and had the most amazing time. The weather was pretty poor, normally in a rental house that could be miserable, but not here; a cosy fire was roaring when we arrived, thick duvets, blankets and heating. The owners lit the fire for us every day we went out, such a thoughtful touch. The house is beautifully furnished and lit and I cannot wait to return. We explored lots in the local area, the owners had lots of recommendations to help us. Such good value too.
