Our three night stay at the Cortijo was far too short. An easy drive (greatly helped by the excellent directions provided) of less than an hour takes you from Malaga into rural Andalucia - Cortijo Valverde is well placed for many excursions and hikes.
Caroline and Ali were superb and generous hosts and an excellent source of information about the region. Nothing was too much trouble. Meals taken all together at one big table were convivial and great fun. The tasty and imaginative food was home-cooked and of a very high standard - delicious home-baked bread at breakfast.
Definitely hope to return.
