“Beautiful walks, complete relaxation and excellent food”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013
1
person found this review helpful

I stayed at Cortijo Opazo in early November with a friend. We opted for the fully-catered self-guided walking holiday. As a result we were treated to William's bistro-quality home cooking every evening. Robert did an excellent job of tailoring the walks to our requirements and was very kind about collecting us on the occasion when we underestimated the time and were late back. The area is truly beautiful and varied: each walk had a distinct character. We were lucky to get fantastic weather and particularly appreciated the spectacular autumn colours. The accommodation is very well set out for two with a variety of indoor entertainment for the odd rainy day, and we particularly appreciated having our own private patio area as well as access to the garden.

“Stunning views combined with great hospitality”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in El Lujar for 7 nights in October. Everything was perfect - accommodation was delightful, views were stunning and ambience hugely relaxing. After our first delicious meal cooked by William and Robert and served by candlelight on the terrace in the pretty garden, we treated ourselves to 2 more!

“Stunningly beautiful!”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had an amazing holiday at Cortijo Opazo, staying in La Corona. The view is stunning and the verandah at the front is so peaceful - all you can hear is goat bells.

We had a relaxing but busy few days, walking up to the waterfalls, around all the villages and on the ridge you can see from the house. We loved taking a dip in the fresh pools, so refreshing after walking in August!

I can't recommend this place enough!

“What a place!”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We arrived in the dead of night, having driven up the windy roads from Malaga. There was cold beer in the fridge as promised and the apartment was just as expected - fully equipped, tidy, cosy, and peaceful. The next morning we went outside to be greeted by bright sunshine and the most breath-taking view from our veranda - wow! It was a feast for the eyes all week, as was the panoramic night sky. Robert and Williams' garden is enchanting, with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. We became rather attached to their 2 dogs, who often "popped by" to say hello and hang out with us. We made great use of their excellent laminated walking maps, setting off early before the day became too hot by lunchtime to be walking. We enjoyed eating out in Pitres and Busquatar, where there is a very good tapas place (recommended in the apartment's comprehensive local info). One night Robert cooked us a delicious curry, I mean, really good! Robert kept a discreet distance from us, so we felt we had all the privacy we wanted, but was also very friendly and on-hand if needs be. I had a fantastic massage from his friend Caroline, who will come to your apartment with her massage bed at a very reasonable price. This holiday lived up to and beyond expectations and we would recommend it to anyone - and what a great price too.

“Yurt-Fantastic!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

From the first moment the booking was made, the information sent was clear and precise.  You could tell William and Richard had been doing this for 10 years!

  The instructions to find the place could not have been clearer and the Yurt was about 30mins drive from Orgiva.  

On arrival we were greeted enthusiastically by Ella the dog and the walk to the Yurt was an easy few minutes, past the chickens and through the beautiful gardens.  The two cold beers on arrival were very well appreciated, thank you!

The Yurt is situated right at the end of their land and was utterly private.  Next to it was a wooden hut, with a super power shower ( heated by solar panels) and  housing the outdoor (covered) cooking facilities.  The kitchen was really well equipped and the two hob gas burner was more than adequate for the job.  Everything was stored in plastic boxes to keep them clean and the wildlife (I would have liked a couple of extra boxes). The gas fridge was small and did struggle during the hot summer days, although was again, very adequate.

The Yurt itself was lovely.  Once the 2 windows, door and top were opened (all covered with essential fly screens), it cooled down dramatically, even in the mid day sun.  The bed was so comfy and the Yurt came furnished with a two seater sofa, bedside tables, a coffee table and a wood burner (disappointedly we had no use for in the middle of July!).  The array of solar powered lamps that were provided, we're fantastic at keeping the whole camp well lit during the night.  Outside were 4 sun loungers to choose from, and a shade canopy all set up.

The views were amazing and the utter clam and peace pervaded the whole site. At night the stars were amazing and the moon shone bright.  We were guarded on our first night by Oska, who slept outside our Yurt until we were fast asleep.

William was a great host! The Maps and walking instructions, coupled with his local knowledge were invaluable. The fresh eggs we could buy from him kept us going through the day and the local wine (costa) he introduced us to put hairs on my chest! We spent our days walking in the mountains (you must try the waterfall walk if you go and take Williams advice to head further up, beyond the waterfall to the array of crystal clear, freezing cold pools!) and wondering around the local villages.  We were able to buy 5 or 6 drinks, each with big free tapas for under 7euros!  El Mirador in Pitres was an amazing find, with lovely home cooked food, all served on their terrace with an amazing view.

We will be back, this was a fantastic break and a super birthday present from my lovely lady!
