About this listing
One of three charming cottages in a converted cortijo sharing a stunning pool overlooking rural olive groves. Guide book recommended, peace and tranquility combined with access to the cultural centres of Granada, Cordoba, Malaga and Antequera.
Casita Galgo (meaning Little Greyhound house) provides spacious, comfortable and airy accommodation. Access is through an original door into the private courtyard where you can enjoy wining and dining in the sun!
On the ground floor is a large twin bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, walk in shower, toilet, basin and window. The bedroom has two large windows, one looking out over the valley and the other into the courtyard, allowing for cooling cross breezes.
There are outside stairs leading up to the open plan living area, giving the best views from the entire cortijo through the three large windows. There is a comfortable sofa, satellite television and a wood burner for cooler evenings.
The fully equipped kitchen area has an 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 two for dining.
Outside and downstairs there is a private courtyard surrounded by traditional high white walls.. You are not overlooked by the other casitas. There is a covered shady area for really hot summer days, patio furniture and a barbecue based in the chimney breast of what was the original outside kitchen: make the most of the outside living for which sunny Andalucia is justifiably famous! Guests are welcome to smoke outside in their own courtyard.

The pool is set on the edge of the patio and has a comfortable seating ledge in the water, giving you somewhere to sit and keep cool whilst you read or just gaze at the view…..
There is an outside shower room with toilet and basin so that you do not have to return to your casita once ensconced in the sunshine.
There is also a laundry room accessed from the pool patio area, with a washing machine, wash basin, iron and ironing board for communal use.

Marylynne and Gillian are sisters who bought the old cortijo as a retirement project after both living and working in various parts of the world. Andalucia has given them a home which reflects a perfect blend of their South African roots and desert childhoods,
