One of three charming cottages in a converted cortijo sharing a stunning pool overlooking rural olive groves. Guide book recommended by Alastair Sawday peace and tranquility combined with access to the cultural centres of Granada, Cordoba, Malaga and Antequera.
Casita Liebre (meaning Little Hare House) is reached through the original farmyard doors leading onto the courtyard.
Accessed from the courtyard, the accommodation is based in the oldest part of the reformed Cortijo with low beamed ceilings and niches retained from the original building.
The original walls are thick, providing coolness in the summer and retaining warmth in the winter. There is a lounge, with large comfortable Moorish style divan sofas and a log burner for cool winter evenings. There is also satellite television. French doors provide light and access to the courtyard. An open staircase leads upstairs
A low doorway takes you into the fully equipped kitchen which also opens onto the courtyard through French doors.
There is a full sized electric oven/ hob plus a fridge with a small freezer compartment:essential for cooling the local beer and wine! A good range of plates, pots, glasses etc. allow for home from home, relaxed food preparation. Basics (such as salt, pepper, oil, washing up liquid etc.) are provided as part of our service. There is a kitchen table to seat four for dining.
