Gillian and Marylynne were lovely hosts, and their Cortijo is beautiful – we had a fantastic experience staying with them. The photos don’t do it justice – the Cortijo is a beautifully restored traditional Spanish home, with it’s own private courtyard, beautifully furnished with large private bathrooms for each of the rooms. It’s very rural – a car was definitely necessary, but the countryside is awe-inspiring, and the Cortijo has amazing views onto olive groves on all sides.  We had day trips out to Granada, Cordoba, Antequera and more.  We found our stay super relaxing, and it was a perfect way to get a feel for life in rural Andalucia!
