Cortijo Las Golondrinas is an elegant 5 bedroom villa nestling in the coastal hills of the ‘Valle Tropical’ of Andalucia in Spain. 3 km from Jete and Otivar, 20 min to the buzzing beaches of Almunecar, Salobrena and La Herradura, one hour equidistant from Malaga and Granada this is the Spain of ‘chiringuitos’ serving heaped plates of sea food, whitewashed villages, thriving-all-year towns, old school customer service, stunning mountains, the Alhambra Palace and any excuse for a fiesta. Las Golondrinas location overlooking the tropical valley foothills of the Sierra Nevada and the coast 8 km away works brilliantly for large families, romantic breaks, special occasion gatherings, ‘boys’ activity weeks and 'girls' getaways. Near enough to do a weekend, Spanish enough to be different... go hiking, eat fresh local food, cycle, canyon, horse trek, ski in the morning, swim in the afternoon or... do absolutely nothing, chilling on the terrace by the pool- top Rioja in hand. Enjoy!
Golf: Motril 18 hole Golf Course is 25 min away although why anyone would want to spoil a good walk beats us! Golf is very popular all year in this part of Spain due to its warm climate.
Ski: Brilliant skiing/snowboarding in The Sierra Nevada in Winter only 90 min door to door. 103 runs, snow park, 27 lifts, 350 snow cannons and the most southerly skiing in Europe. Brilliant place to learn, better food and much cheaper than France. The Spanish would lynch anyone who served tinned ravioli for a tenner! The best skiing I ever had? Christmas Eve when all the Spanish visit relatives and we caned 100km of totally empty resort in glorious sunshine overlooking the Mediterranean - A hidden gem and perfect for 2/3 days ski break. If you would like to see a layout of the bedrooms of the three independent areas please let us know.
