Description of this holiday home in Alpujarras
Cortijo El Membrillo is set in the midst of the splendid terraced landscape of the Alpujarras not far from the villages Pitres and Portugos. You’ll have a wonderful view of the valley and the mountains. The architecture of the newly built rental house is kept in the style of the Alpujarras with a flat roof, ceiling with authentic beams, beautiful tiled floors and rustic furniture. The house has a contemporary bathroom and kitchen. During cooler evenings the house remains comfortable due to the fireplace and additional heating. The swimming pool can be used from May until October 1st. On the premises you’ll always find a delightful place to relax, either in the sun or in the shade. The large and partially covered terrace at the entrance is a most suitable place to serve your meals. Cortijo El Membrillo is ideal for those who appreciate peace and quiet and enjoy going for walks.
The long-distance footpath, the GR7, is nearby. Get acquainted with the characteristic white-washed houses in the village of the Alpujarras and the amazing scenery. The young Spanish owner lives with his family in Pitres. He speaks some English and is a very good host. The last kilometre to Cortijo El Membrillo is on a well-maintained dirt road with a few steeper sections. This shouldn’t be a problem for experienced drivers.
