The high standard accommodation Cortijo El Potro is a spacious two-floor Andalusian villa set in absolute natural tranquility. It is located within very green and beautiful subtropical grounds, surrounded by nature in an authentic Mediterranean setting. The whole property of 3.300sqm is organic-certificated. The garden contains various orange, avocado and centenarian olive trees and many other Mediterranean fruit trees. You can even pick our delicious lemons and oranges and make your own fresh juice, from November to June. The shared saline-swimming pool produces a natural alternative to chlorine; it is 9 x 4m and incorporates a shallow toddler section. The pool is situated within a lawned garden and is surrounded by a child-safety wooden fence.

We attach great importance to cleaning the houses and provide guests with disinfectant gel and an approved disinfectant cleaner for their own use at many points on the property.

Our guests were very satisfied with the care we take in this regard and felt safe and comfortable.

The lawn around the pool and the gardens are such as spacious that each house has its own area and sun loungers for exclusive use.

These precautions will certainly guarantee a restful, fun and relaxing holiday for the whole family.
The lush garden has a playground with a slide tower, tire swing, rocking horse and badminton net.
The property is only 1km away from Orgiva (10-15 minutes walking distance) but it offers all the quietness and tranquility of pure nature to make your holiday as pleasant and restful as possible.

EQUIPMENT
The interiors of Cortijo El Potro are characterised by a large kitchen and dining area, a wide living room with an open fireplace and two bright en-suite bedrooms. The master bedroom has direct access to a large beautiful sunny terrace which overlooks the garden and has fantastic views of the valley and the mountains.
The villa offers free 50 Mb WIFI, heating/air condition, an modern oven, a dishwasher and an open fire place and contains all you need for a comfortable stay, like sharp kitchen knives, large red wine glasses, quality mattresses and bed linens, north European standard duvets, all types of towels, relax-loungers and plenty of firewood.
Everything is tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished and equipped to a high standard.
There is another villa 50m away within the grounds, which is divided into three parts; our home and two self-contained holiday accommodations. Each of the three accommodations has its own garden area, terrace and barbecue as it is peacefully secluded by lush vegetation. Only the green lawned pool area is shared by all of them, giving plenty of space to each party.

MEASURES COVID-19: We attach great importance to the cleaning and disinfection of our holiday homes and also provide disinfectant gel and an authorized disinfectant cleaner for personal use.
The lawns around the pool are so spacious that each accommodation has its own area, its own parasol and each guest has their own sun lounger for exclusive use.
The guests that we have had during the pandemic have shared with us that the care we take is very noticeable and that they have felt very calm and safe.
