Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains of southern Spain, at a height of 1250 above sea level, Cortijo Opazo offers a perfect holiday destination if you are looking for beautiful scenery, relaxing surroundings and an area that is rich in cultural history. The region is known as 'Las Alpujarras' and is an enchanting part of Spain, situated between the summits of the Sierra Nevada National Park and the Mediterranean coast of the Costa Tropical. As a holiday destination it is ideal for walking, cycling, riding, photography, painting and the appreciation of flowers and wildlife; but most of all for just unwinding and taking time out. It is within easy striking distance of the historical city of Granada with its fabulous Alhambra Palace, yet is close enough to the coast to enjoy a well deserved day lounging on the beach. During the winter and spring you can even go skiing on the high slopes of the Sierra Nevada - less than two hours by car.
Foremerly a working farmhouse, Cortijo Opazo can be found in the countryside between the villages of Pitres and Pórtugos (1.5km from each) and the area of La Taha, about 25 kms from the market town of Orgiva. It is surrounded by ancient terraces, used today by shepherds and market gardeners. The cortijo has been renovated to provide holiday accommodation in two delightful lodgings, La Corona and El Lujar, named after the two mountains summits that the house faces. These apartments can be rented out on a self catering basis, or as part of a fully catered all inclusive walking holiday package. Meals can also be cooked for you on an occasional basis if we are given 24 hours notice.
We pride ourselves in having created a great location for your holiday, with clean, well equipped accommodation - warm in winter, comfortably cool in summer. All the information you need to get the most out of your stay is waiting for you on arrival and we are available should you need more help/advice. If not needed we maintain a descreet and distant presence allowing you the privacy you wish to enjoy yourselves. The large garden with its various seating areas provides an exceptional space in which you can relax and unwind - until you feel ready to venture out into the valleys, villages and hillsides beyond Cortijo Opazo.
A perfect location for your holiday.
