The Experience

Perched above a canyon, encircled by barren hills and semi-desert… imagine Clint Eastwood riding over the hill. The low white cortijo lies in one of Spain’s harshest but most alluring landscapes, with all the classic hallmarks of the Wild West. Guarded by stocky date palms, this ‘ranch’ flaunts its finer features – a ‘patio rosa,’ a double-fireplace living room – while a warren of courtyards and rooms makes up the space. Bedrooms are comfortable, sober and beautifully designed. Neutral and natural is the look; stunning images of the landscape pepper the walls. Borrow whichever sunhat takes your fancy and brave the sun. Cacti, palms and carobs find their natural home here and Aurora has created a really special garden. There’s a chill-out area on the patio with heaps of cushions, good sounds and delicious mojitos and snacks on offer, and a saltwater pool to cool off in. Flamenco concerts in summer, winter nights by the fire, delightful staff all year round. Don’t miss the coastal footpath of the Cabo de Gata park, or the arc of beach at Agua Amarga, deserted outside summer.
