What a garden, what a view! Herbaceous borders, hidden corners, restful chairs, a tranquil pond, and heart-lifting colours throughout the year. Garden designer William and partner Robert have created a little paradise from a rocky hillside in the Alpujarras, on the edge of the national park. Champions of sustainability, the couple converted a derelict farmhouse where animals once lived, then developed two apartments, simple and open plan, using local stone, salvaged timber and traditional techniques. There are chestnut beams and terracotta floors, wood-burning stoves, Alpujarran rugs and cotton curtains, and William's photographs on the walls. La Corona's veranda has the mountain views; El Lujar a private courtyard and patio. Gleaming little kitchens will please you, along with books, guides and winter-warm floors. Although you are on the bend of an (unbusy) road, walks start from the door – the views are amazing, bird life abounds, Granada's an easy drive. If you tire of cheffing, treat yourself to one of your gentle hosts' dinners, a feast of garden produce.

Local points of interest from
Robert King:

  • Situated on the edge of the mighty Sierra Nevada National Park with some of the best walking in Europe - and our in-house walking guides will help you get the most out of the area from the moment you arrive.
  • The local villages and terraced hillsides are an authentic step back in time, protected by law as an area of special social and historic interest. There is nowhere else in Spain quite like the Alpujarras.
  • Take a dip in a mountain waterfall to cool off in summer - we can show you where.
  • Granada city and the fabulous Alhambra palace are within easy reach - a cultural must at least once in a life time.
  • An exceptional garden surrounds Cortijo Opazo, produce from the vegetable bed and our very own hens is usually available.
  • The beaches of the Costa Tropical are about an hour by car, we can guide you to the lesser known coves and seaside villages

"There is nothing to dislike about Cortijo Opazo, we just loved, loved, loved it - the accommodation, location & hosts are all fabulous!!"

"If you are a garden enthusiast or a lover of nature in the wild then Cortijo Opazo is just the place to stay. And even if you weren’t into horticulture or hill trekking then the mere location of this wonderful establishment would be enough to gladden the heart. It’s a high-altitude oasis of greenery, a tiny bit of paradise, and probably one of the most enjoyable holiday locations that we’ve experienced in recent times. Plenty of warm sunshine, beautiful walks of all kinds and relaxing times in the quiet gardens. We were so well looked after that we didn’t want to leave! "

"Cortijo Opazo had everything we wanted. The weather was very warm, but not too hot. The walks from the house are stunning, and there are even more challenging ones in the high mountains. Granada and the Alhambra was an excellent day out. Robert and William were the perfect hosts: friendly and always there for a chat and advice, and of course providing wonderful meals when we were feeling lazy. The garden is amazingly beautiful, and William has succeeded in overcoming the difficult terrain. We highly recommend, and will be back."

"William and Robert have created a truly special place. They are welcoming and thoughtful hosts. The accommodation is lovely and the gardens are delightful. The Alpujarras are a stunning location. The walking guides they've put together are very helpful. Go for a walk and make sure you've ordered a delicious meal as your reward."

"Cortijo Opazo is a very special place to stay in an area of outstanding beauty. Sitting on the secluded wisteria clad veranda looking out towards the mountains listening to the sound of goat bells you feel totally at peace. Robert and William have created a wonderful home and garden that we felt privileged to share - their welcome was second to none. "

"An incredible spot. We just wanted to sit there and drink in the panoramic views from our terrace. our hosts were very knowledgeable about the area and very willing to share that information. We would certainly recommend them. Liz and Andy Turner"

"We had a fablulous two weeks at Cortijo Opazo. Such a beautiful and restful place to stay. Lots of good walking opportunities on the doorstep but the delightful garden at the Cortijo makes simply reading and relaxing a very tempting option. If you choose to stay here we are sure you won't be disappointed - and make sure you take advantage of being cooked for by your hosts."
July 2011
""Cortijo Opazo provides a wonderful holiday home with everything we could have wanted, amid magnificent mountains and little precarious villages, we were beguiled by it all, from ancient mule tracks to white villages and almond blossom as far as the eye could see....beautiful. ....and walks still beckoning.""
