The space

An enchanting and spacious one bedroom cottage, completely self- contained with a private terrace and delightful views over the valley with tropical fruit orchards and vineyards.Situated at the edge of the beautiful whitewashed village of Cútar .The ancient Moorish village of Cútar is far from the tourist trail but only an hour from Málaga airport, 25 minutes from the coast and secluded beaches and within easy reach of the great Andalucian cities of Granada and Córdoba.

The 200 year old cottage has been completely renovated in the Andalucian style - preserving the traditional features but with modern appliances that include free wifi. The high beamed ceilings and handmade terracotta floor tiles help stabilize the summer and winter temperatures. The cottage is accessed via a pretty patio in traditional patterned stonework with a large flowering cactus and tropical plants.
The door of the cottage opens into an open-plan kitchen and living area with an attractive open fireplace in traditional brickwork. The room is furnished with handmade Andalucian furniture which enhance the Moorish-Spanish feel of the space. There is a CD player and radio, CDs, books, local guides and board games. The kitchen is equipped to modern standards with a gas hob, fridge, microwave, toaster and electric kettle.The spacious, high-ceilinged bedroom has a traditional Andalucian double bed and wardrobe. It has a warm and intimate feel. The bed is made up with best quality white cotton linen, changed weekly. Like the rest of the cottage, the bathroom has a traditional feel, being decorated in hand made ceramic and terracotta tiles. However it is modern and fully equipped including a shower, small bath, bidet and hairdryer. Good quality white cotton bath and hand towels are included .The small,private, south facing terrace completes the suite, overlooks the Cútar valley and Mount Maroma. It includes a small barbecue and ceramic sink.
Cútar has a tapas bar (more in the summer), a well stocked general store and a pharmacy. Larger supermarkets, banks and open air swimming pools (open in the summer months) are available a few minutes drive away in nearby villages. A car is essential as there is little public transport.

Please note that Cútar is a hill village and may not be suitable for people with mobility problems.

Lovely cottage in a lovely village! John and Judy were very helpfull about how to get to Cutar and about the things we could do in Axarquia. Everything look exactly like the pictures, we really appreciated our stay there and we'd love to come back some time! Really peacefull, perfect for a break! Car needed though to discover fully the area.

John and Judy were very friendly and absolutely courteous. They were always open for chat and very helpful. The cottage is nice, cosy and simply a sweet place. The landscape and the view from the balcony are beautiful. Most of the people in Cutar only speak Spanish, but they are very friendly and helpful. You can get to the sea within 20 minutes by car and in the evenings it is very quiet in Cutar, but - just as it is written in the description of the cottage - a car is absolutely necessary.

Judy and John’s place is perfect for ‘getting away from it all’ and slowing right down. The simple accommodation is true to the character of a 200 year old cottage but is well equipped and has everything you could possible need. Milk, coffee and a delicious bowl of fresh cherries helped with the ‘settling in’. On arrival Judy guided me through the various manuals that are included in the house and although they live in an attached property the hosts were very unobtrusive and in-fact we only met again on the morning of departure. Unfortunately the shower was playing up during my visit resulting in a ‘refreshingly’ cold shower for 3 days – if hot water is a priority for you may be worth checking that it has been fixed. The balcony is even better than in the photos. I travelled to Cutar by public transport and John kindly picked me up from the bus stop in neighbouring El Borge. The area is a walker’s paradise with numerous paths and dry river bed linking the various villages. A bus to Torre del Mar (4kms of sandy beach) leaves the village each morning at 07.30, stopping en-route at numerous little villages and towns including Velez de Malaga. Travelling by bus is part of the cultural experience and a wonderful way to meet locals and learn about life in that beautiful part of Spain. The bus returns to Cutar from Torre del Mar in the evening at 19.00 or 19.30 (the latter in the summer). There is a very regular bus service between Malaga and Torre del Mar. Cutar has one small grocery shop which magically seems to stock everything that you might need and if it isn’t in stock in the morning they will try and have it for you by the afternoon. The tomatoes, oranges and apples bought there were delicious. If you prefer the variety on offer at larger supermarkets there is a very good one right opposite the bus station in Torre del Mar.

A really nice cottage in a beautiful village. The view on the hills around from the terrace is breathtaking. This is the ideal place if you are looking for an authentic trip. John and Judy have thought about everything to make your journey perfect : fresh fruits and a bottle of wine wait for you at your arrival. They also propose you touristic tips. John and Judy are really kind. We had a medical issue and John went with us to the nearest hospital.

Judy And John User ProfileJudy And John is a superhost.

We moved to rural Spain from London almost eight years ago - exchanging hectic managerial jobs for life in the Andalucian hills. We rent out three holiday properties in the area, one five bedroom house and two village cottages. We love the area and really enjoy introducing it our guests - all of whom we meet on arrival. We farm a hillside plot near the village, growing mangoes, almonds, grapes, figs and citrus - which we happily share with our guests in season. Judy (a sculptor) also runs a small contemporary and community art gallery in Cútar with other local artists.
