“Fabulous location, wonderful walks”
Reviewed January 7, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed over Christmas week and were blessed with the most glorious sunshine and blue skies. This accommodation is ideally suited for touring the surrounding cities of Seville, Granada, Cordoba and Ronda. It is also gives access to to stunning walks and scenary. I was stunned at how beautiful the area is, linking in with other valleys and mountains. We did a lot of walking and had fascinating times watching the olive pickers harvesting the trees and the last of the oranges being picked. Picturesque lakes within 40 mins drive with easy walks to be found. The Cortijo was lovely, bags of charactor and charm with very kind and informative hosts. Plenty of places to get lost in the grounds with little hide-aways tucked here and there. A very special place with a magical quality. Highly recommend for walking at every level and touring this fascinating area.

“Paradise Villa”
Reviewed September 27, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Cortijo la Serena in June with friends and our 16 month old,Daisy,this was a return visit for all of us to the place we refer to as Paradise Villa as that is just what it is! It is hard to describe in words or with pictures the beauty of this place,the owners Donald & Katherine have created the perfect escape rental for families and friends,with several dining areas and a little outdoor bar,you can have a different theme for all your communal meals from a BBQ under a beautiful tree,a lazy lunch on the terrace or a Moroccan themed night in the stunning yurt this is all in addition to the gorgeous pool and landscaping which ensures that you are always surround by scented shrubs and the quiet hum of bees.The house is tastefully designed and has a rustic Spanish/moorish feel,it is well equipped with everything you would need for your stay and the kitchen is enjoyable to cook in,with the available plates,bowls,platters etc you can layout your meals so that you look like an effortless tapas/Spanish cookery pro! We travelled with a baby and a lovely cot was provided and Donald & Katherine even provided a little baby bath which could be filled so that Daisy could enjoy all the poolside fun and keep cool.The nearest town has a good supermarket and some nice little places for lunch,but really you will just want to get back to Paradise Villa as do we.Caroline,Jerry & Daisy xx

“Serene Quality in Andalucia”
Reviewed September 20, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A few days enjoying a truly tranquil and exceptional property with Kathryn and Donald as discreet but hospitable hosts. Whether it's as a location for getting to key attractions eg Granada, Cordoba, Malaga or relaxing with beautifully laid out grounds and pool and local attractions such as Antequera and El Torcal, it is a beautiful and lovingly restored cortijo in a peaceful location, away from the Costa crowds.
