This restored, unique large cortijo is nestled in rolling olive groves. It's perfect for relaxing in the sun or shade in the exterior courtyards and gardens. It is easy to get lost in this villa.. ideal for a large family, groups of friends or a smaller family looking for the luxury of space.
Cool down in the splash pool - safe for kids to play, private and so inviting for a refreshing dip. The world slows down here. This is a perfect holiday home for unwinding and being with loved ones

The space
Cortijo Blanquillo is set in the hills in olive growing land with views of mountains, winding roads and spectacular valleys.We have lovingly restored the house and grounds; retaining traditional features and modernising and adding homely touches. The long, airy lounge has large bi fold doors which open to the central courtyard. The open plan dining kitchen has everything you would expect in a modern kitchen. Double doors in the kitchen lead onto the main courtyard too. The courtyard has a dining area, sunbathing areas and the perfect for splashing in splash pool.(3mx3m and approx 750cm deep).
Back inside, there is also a bedroom on the ground floor and a bathroom with shower.
A double height hallway and staircase leads to three first floor bedrooms, one ensuite and one “wing “ with two bedrooms and a family bathroom in between. The smaller room here has bunk beds and a raised platform tv area.
A bespoke spiral staircase leads to a bedroom with its own private terrace off and en-suite bathroom.
The garden has another dining/ seating area and plenty of little spots to sit under the walnut tree or play on the swing. Pick a fig or a plum or admire the almond blossom in spring.
There are two more courtyards- one leads to another private guest house where the couple who help us look after the house live.
There is also a laundry room in this other courtyard and more shady spots to sit under a fig tree,
If you like to explore you can visit traditional hill top villages, castles, churches or cave houses or just simply wander through the olive trees.
Loja is the nearest town and very traditional; Granada is the nearest city.

Guest access
The entire cortijo and all the outside spaces are yours to enjoy. You can wander through the olive trees in any direction.

Other things to note
Remember a cat (Lady Velma) lives at this property.
We are off the main road on a farm land track through the olive trees - it is has just recently been repaired with concrete in most areas. It is remote, rural area and the roads and tracks are not like driving in cities. You have to be a competent driver to cope with these.

Loja, Granada, Spain

The casa is in unspoilt Andalucia with stunning views; mountains and valleys all round and neat rows of olives trees, interspersed with traditional holm oak woods.
We are 2km from the nearest village of Ventorros de San Jose or Zagra. Both have small, well stocked supermarkets, bakers, butchers, pharmacies and bars and cafes. They still serve tapas here with a cold drink or beer.
Zagra has a community pool if you need a big swim. Open from 12-8 daily with an on-site restaurant.

I have two gorgeous, funny and energetic kids (aged 8 and 9). My partner Billy and I lovingly restored this very unique Cortijo. I love giving old places a new lease of life and then adding new things to the spaces making them both homely and unique. It is hard to capture the beauty of this house and area in photos. We live in the leafy south side of Glasgow, slowly working our way through the renovation of a potentially handsome but rundown Victorian three storey sandstone villa. We have rented out on Airbnb in Glasgow, Douglas and Andalusia to many travellers from all over the world. I am a theatre producer based in Scotland and have just recently set up my own company - Raw Material -with a friend. I really value theatre as an art form that brings together individuals to create a production that we can then share with a wider audience.
