Holiday rural country house in Alpujarras, Granada. Cortijo Prado Toro is situated i
Cortijo Prado Toro is situated in the Natural Park of the Alpujarras,on the southern slopes of the National Park of the Sierra Nevada, Spain's highest and most dramatic mountain range in the province of Granada. The Cortijo (country house) faces towards the Mediterranean at an altitude of 1450m, opening up breathtaking views of unspoilt natural countryside and on clear days even extending to the Rif mountains of North Africa.
Cortijo Prado Toro is a delightful quiet place set amidst stunning countryside. Hidden courtyards and patios provide sanctuaries of shade and greenery, whilst secluded terraced corners offer privacy in the sun. Weeping branches of mature willow trees form bowers of tranquility, and the gentle murmur of a spring or fountain never seems far away. Only the muted clanging of distant goat bells is likely to disturb the silence of this quiet mountain retreat.
The architecture of the buildings, designed and restored with the help of Donald Gray (an eminence in traditional Andalucian architecture),is in the traditional Alpujarran style with much care taken on the detail. The individually designed and decorated apartments of the Cortijo Prado Toro, all furnished to a high standard, combine simplicity and luxury with elegance from another era.
Cortijo Prado Torro is near to the historic city of Granada, many sandy beaches on the coast and there is easy access from Malaga airport.
