We stayed here for a week (2 adults, 2 kids). The photos do not do this place justice. Every room is finished to an extremely high standard with air con everywhere. You have your own private terrace and garden in a little bungalow in the grounds of the family home. The owners are there if you need them but they stay out of your way. They also have a really good knowledge of the area and can recommend places to go. The swimming pool is shared with the owners however we had it to ourselves most of the time. We will return here without hesitation and would wholeheartedly recommend this to others.
Our family of 4 (2 teenagers) loved the Cortija Algabia and hope to return someday. The home is beautifully furnished and decorated and that alone was a treat. After traveling for 10 days it was a nice break for our family from staying in city center. Plus being away from tourist center, we were buying groceries etc where locals do and having a unique experience.
Lali and Cali caring hosts who have thought of everything - the best parking areas near sights in Alhambra, restaurants, activities. They also have a small store, with wine, beer, other items - very helpful for Sunday arrival or when you are just too tired to go out again. They had already stocked us with eggs from their hens and milk when we arrived, plus delicious olive oil from their olive trees. They also helped us phone a pizza delivery one night.
We enjoyed sipping wine on the porch shaded by grape vines, the refreshing pool, and feeding the hens!! Very fun for city people to feed hens. (And our teens enjoyed watching Netflix, included with the home. )
The kitchen is well equipped and the refrigerator is full size - we appreciated that as we did a lot of cooking. Also all the beds are comfortable twin beds so everyone had their own bed.
Note that our car GPS could not locate the property but Google maps could. Lali and Cali can also provide directions. It was easy to have a car and drive to Granada to see the sights. They recommended a giant parking garage in Granada with wider spaces and easy bus or walking access to all tourist sights. We found taxis to be the same price as bus fare for four people.
Highly recommended for a unique experience! We hope to return to do some of the hiking recommended by Lali and Cali.
Lovely owners who take care to assist and make your stay just right but not over the top, a superb base to explore the region having excellent roads to Granada or the coast all quicker than estimates on line !
We will return to this cortijo as the owners have thought of everything to make your stay a special one ... Thank you
