A Hideaway For The Soul
Cortijo La Hoya’s breathtaking Swimming Pool
Cortijo La Hoya unfolds its majestic beauty to the discriminating holiday maker seeking peace and tranquillity ‘away from it all’ yet still minutes from civilization…
An Oasis of Peace and Tranquillity set within Los Alcornocales Natural Park and reached through a challenging drive across a 3 km unpaved country road, passing spectacular scenery, Cortijo La Hoya rewards the journey with unrivaled sensations.
A project of love by her unbreakable owner, Cortijo La Hoya is a 150 year old typical rural ‘Andaluz’ country house, brought back to thriving life by Fabiola and her son Rafael after a painstaking restoration completed in the 1980’s.
Three delightful semi-detached cottages or ‘Casitas’ compose Cortijo: Casa Luna, Casa Sol and Casa Tramontana, named after the moon, the sun and the wind blowing in this part of Spain, which cools down even the hotter summer season. Breathtaking and utterly unique, each ‘Casita’ hosts 2 guests and offers uninterrupted views of the African coast with its terracotta villages just 14 km away – and a great day trip from nearby Tarifa.
A majestic swimming pool with stunning views across Gibraltar straits, Morocco and the Mediterranean, lush gardens that are Fabiola’s joy and pride, pristine nature all around and the gift of a prime location within a natural park make Cortijo the ultimate refuge for the soul.
Wake up to the sound of birds, sip coffe in your patio overlooking the sea, watch nature unfold before your very eyes and listen to barking foxes or ships’ horns as they sail along Gibraltar straits on their way to the open sea…this is just the beginning of a memorable holiday.
La Hoya’s closest town, Pelayo, is only 2 miles away. The road to Cortijo is best accessed with a medium size vehicle, a SUV or an appropriate rental car (economy or low sport cars not recommended) as you drive through rough lanes at times. Forests of cork oak, wild olive trees, creeping clematis and wild roses lead the way to Cortijo and country walks, birdwatching, trekking, horse riding, windsurfing and lots more activities are all easy to do in the area.
