Cortijo Azul

Cortijo Azul – a quirky cortijo full of character and charm 


Welcome to Cortijo Azul (a cortijo is a rural dwelling) situated near Hinojares in the south of the Parque Natural de Sierra de Cazorla, Andalucia, Spain. My holiday cottage or “Casa Rural” sleeps up to 8 and accepts pets.  Set within its own organic olive grove it has breath taking views into the mountains. 

If you’re looking for something a little unusual, this is the place for you. The house is simple and rustic, yet effortlessly stylish. It has thick stone walls, a blend of antique and modern furnishings and plenty of home comforts. This is not your typical holiday accommodation; it is a cosy, genuine home. 

There are walking trails from the door and nearby, lakes, valleys, pretty mountain villages and historic towns just waiting to be explored.  The lovely whitewashed Andalucian villages of Hinojares, Castril and Cazorla are all within easy reach. 

Granada airport is 1 hour 30 minutes away with Murcia and Malaga airports around 2 hours. 


Parque Natural de las Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y las Villas is the largest Protected Area in Spain and the second largest in the whole of Europe. It is famed for its flora and fauna, rich cultural history and outdoor recreation opportunities.

Whether you are interested in exploring, art and culture or simply relaxing with friends and family, Cortijo Azul is a wonderful year-round destination. 

I look forward to welcoming you to my little piece of Andalucia.


(By the way, you might be wondering, who am I and why do I own a house in this part of the world? Well I bought Cortijo Azul in January 2018... on a whim it must be said. I just LOVE old houses with their wonky walls and rustic simplicity.  OK they have their challenges, but with its little olive grove and spectacular setting, I just couldn’t resist it. I can't live here for now but I hope to one day. So, for the time being I let the house out for others to enjoy. I live and work in Mid Wales. It’s a bit like Spain, but with more rain. A lot more rain!!) 


"In a word, brilliant!

The house is a gem, really quirky and beautifully set below the spectacular mountains.

We loved sitting on the terrace watching the birds of prey circling around the mountain peaks.

Its a perfect place if you just want peace and quiet and to enjoy nature."
