We spent 5 nights in the Granada room (separate from main building). Everything was very well presented, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We had asked in advance for bike hire and bottles of water in the room - everything was arranged perfectly. The owners are fairly new (Wendy and Bert), and their attention to detail is great. We also took... More

This is a real getaway spot. Quiet, rural, relaxing with great hosts, lovely pool and gardens and ideal for exploring inland Malaga. Everything is really very good. Just lie back and enjoy the sunshine, the lovely individual apartment/rooms in the attractive grounds.

Our friends have just sold their business and retired, after an intense couple of months they wanted a "chill out" holiday and asked us if we would like to join them so the search on the internet began. Cortijo Valverde sounded good, reasonably priced, breakfast included, the reviews sounded good but you can never be 100%. We booked up for... More

We loved our stay at Cortijo Valverde. Ali and Caroline were the perfect hosts. The food was superb. If you are wanting a relaxing peaceful holiday away from it all, this is they place to stay!

It was great to be back at Cortijo Valverdi and to find that we enjoyed it just as much as last time. Caroline and Ali are still great hosts with Caroline working her magic in the kitchen, we really do enjoy the 'dinner party' style of dining in the evening as we got to share our stories with others.

This is a beautiful little B&B about 40 minutes from Malaga and a world away from hustle and bustle of Marbella. We stayed her for one night only, but enjoyed the nature, swiming pool and great hospitality.

We loved our stay at Cortijo Valverde. Caroline and Ali are the greatest hosts. No question is left unanswered. And the food...the food...delicious! Lovely spacious rooms, nice swimming pool and what a view! Lots of things to see and do at reasonable distance.

Our hosts, Ali and Carolyn, were terrific. Six of the us came to their rural hotel and used our days to bicycle. These folks know how to feed bicyclists. The meals were wonderful, the rooms are spotless, and the pool was inviting. This was a great place for a quiet interlude on our three week vacation
