Pros: Incredibly beautiful location and impeccably maintained and decorated. Comfortable and inviting. Really enjoyed Hans and Miranda.
Location: Near to numerous charming villages including Rondo and easy day-trips to Seville and Granada.
One-night stay that we wish had been much longer! Following an unexpectedly long but beautiful drive through the "white villages" of Andalusia, we arrived a bit late to this lovely property but were greeted warmly by owners Hans and Miranda, who oriented us to the property and the surrounding area over a much-appreciated glass of wine. They kindly arranged for a late night of tapas for us at a wonderful restaurant in nearby Alcala del Valle where we were served wonderful tapas made especially for us by the owner/chef. The next morning we enjoyed a relaxing and pretty walk in the olive groves with their dog Sam as guide and came upon a local bullring, bulls and goats at an adjoining farm - delightful! A lovely breakfast followed in the beautiful courtyard. After days of touring Spain's lovely cities, this was a most welcome and relaxing stay. Our two teenagers were made most welcome by Hans and Miranda and really appreciated the experience of staying in such a special place. Wish we had more time to enjoy Cortijo el Guarda and Hans and Miranda - we will always remember this visit!

Incredible host and hostess (and dog)

The host and hostess, Hans and Miranda, went out their way to help us have a smooth vacation at their lovely cortijo el guardo after our rental car broke down in the nearby village. Hans not only picked us up, but returned us to the village to communicate with the tow truck. After a lovely evening back at the cortijo meeting other guests we had our best night sleep in the beautifully appointed room. Breakfast was superb in the beautiful courtyard and Miranda helped us organize alternative transportion. In short- the place and landscape are gorgous and Hans and Miranda are personally vested in seeing their guests have a wonderful stay. (They both seem to sincerely love running the cortijo). We could not give any place a higher recommendation!
