Mary has built a beautiful house and garden high in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The property is incredibly peaceful and would be a great spot to explore from for a couple of days.

It has been wonderful to share Mary's place and talk with her. She's an open-minded and interesting person to chat with and very kind. It is a quiet place surrounded by nature and charming people. The food is also amazing in the Alpujarra and Mary's tea is amazing! : ) thanks a lot

Arrived in wonderful andalucia 2 years ago. I spent 2 years walking in northern Spain but the climate of the south and the majestic mountains drew me here.
I'm an artist and see my lovely little Cortijo as my potential work of art.
Originally I'm from Scotland, also a very beautiful country. I'm passionate about walking and the alpujarras offer great treks. Although I haven't had much time to do any yet! One day I'd love to take the gr7 route( which runs just above my Cortijo) to Greece.
