Description of Interior

Opening out onto our colourful Mediterranean rose gardens, La Hacienda is a beautifully decorated cottage which caters for up to 4 people. La Hacienda is a bright and airy yet traditional country cottage with vaulted antique beamed ceilings in the traditional Rural Andalucian style. With stunning views of the rolling countryside and its own private terrace La Hacienda is perfect for family getaways for groups of up to 4. La Hacienda comprises of 1 double bedroom, 2 pull out beds in the living room, a large bathroom and large kitchen. We provide free Wi-Fi access for our guests so you can connect your laptop or iPhone to our broadband ADSL service. This free access is available not only in the Hacienda but throughout the complex including by the pool and in the Gardens.

All 3 villas have been designed and built by the present owners with a high standard of workmanship and comfort in mind. The accommodation is spacious, bright and modern. Yet the villa oozes an Andalucian feel and charm. Interior decor is to a high standard. Tastefully and comfortably furnished, and equipped to a high specification.

You will find each villa caters to your needs with a welcome pack of tea, sugar, coffee, and all the basic condiments you could need for your stay so that you don’t need to rush out to the shops right away.

All the doors and windows have shutters and all floors are fully tiled, which helps keep the villa cool in the summer months. With Eco-heaters throughout to take the edge of the cold in winter. Each villa has satellite television, dvd player, board games and access to wifi internet connection.
Clean linen and towels are provided and changed at the end of each week.


Garden and Exterior

The owners take great pride in the outside areas of Cortijo Las Olivas, and over the years have worked hard to design and cultivate a beautiful Mediterranean Rose Garden which is a stunning rainbow of colour for most of the year round, complete with Orange trees, lemon trees and grape vines. Nestled within the Rose Gardens is a sun terrace complete with dining area, pool table, brick built Barbecue and bar. There is a refrigerator unit for guests to chill their drinks.

The Villas also share a very large 10x5 swimming pool which is fed by underwater mountain spring water. Possibly the cleanest and freshest swim you will ever have. Surrounding the pool is a large sun terrace where you can relax on the sun loungers provided and shaded areas for relief from the Spanish sun. The pool area also includes an outdoor shower

In addition, each villa has its own private dining patio.

The 3 villas, gardens and pool area are completely private and enclosed with private guests entrance, making Cortijo Las Olivas the perfect, safe getaway for families with young children.

We have copious amounts of private off road parking.

Another benefit of holidaying at Cortijo Las Olivas are the awe inspiring night skies. There is no light pollution at Cortijo Las Olivas and on a clear night, which is most nights, you will see the satellites, the international space station, shooting stars and the Milky Way in all it's magnificent glory!
